My January Envy Box arrived a few days ago and I was delighted by the text I received informing me that it was on its way to my doorstep. As I mentioned in a previous post, My Envy Box, is a beauty box with samples of luxury skincare, hair products and perfumes, priced at a very reasonable Rs 850 a month. If you like a certain product, you can buy its full sized version from the same site and that too at a special discount, making it a wonderful way to try it before you buy it.
This month's box came with 6 products -
The box also has cards featuring the details and usage instructions of each product along with the price of the full sized bottle.
As you can see, these samples are great to store in your bag when you're on the go, or save and use when you're on vacation and don't want to carry full sized bottles.
Thalgo is a French marine spa cosmetics brand and is renowned for treatments and products that deliver excellent results. The first product in the box by Thalgo is the Unizones Clearing Corrector, an ultra-concentrated lightening corrector that reduces the size and intensity of pigmentation marks and the second one is the Brightening Regulating Essence, perfect for all of us who wish to brighten our complexion and make our skin look visibly younger.
Next up is Eminence's Organic Tinted Moisturizer in Caramel Latte, an antioxidant-rich lightweight moisturizer with SPF25 that provides sheer coverage and smells heavenly just like Caramel Latte. Very moisturizing and luxurious. Unfortunately, the shade is slightly dark for my complexion but then again, who wants to look like a white ghost in the day time?
I am yet to try the Elie Saab Perfume as I'm saving it for a special occasion, but the 4 cutout samples provided look so good that my mom picked up two immediately for herself, giving me the logic that she loves the smell so I wont like it! She and I have polar opposite fragrance preferences, but from the description I've read, the floral woody notes in it have already made me pretty sure that I will love it.
Paris based Rene Furterer's Karite Intense Nourishing Shampoo is something I'm saving for my travels. Its a gentle cleansing shampoo that intensely nourishes and restructures very dry, damaged scalp and hair. The other product by them is the Rene Furterer Karite Intense Nourishing Mask , a rich, deep conditioning mask that nourishes and repairs very dry, damaged hair. Am saving this one for a special occasion :)
So these were the contents of the January edition of My Envy Box and I love all of them! Did I mention that the box itself is great to store your trinkets and other stuff? I've already converted my December box into a jewelry box and have promised my mom to give her the February box :)
What do you think of this box? Have you tried any of these products before?
