It's the happiest time of the year and this month's My Envy Box looks like it came straight from Santa! The December box is a beautiful shade of red and has Christmas themed motifs all over and they wrote me a personalized note too :) As you may know, My Envy Box is a monthly subscription, where you get a box of samples of leading beauty products each month. If you like any of the samples, you can buy the full-sized version directly from their website.
This month's box came with two full sized products from the European cosmetics company Catrice while the rest are small samples of beauty products of other renowned brands.
To start of with Catrice, I got the Ultimate nail lacquer from their limited edition “Hip Trip” range in the shade Nude & Rude which is pale nude color with shimmer. Since I only wear nude nail polish (or black) this suits me perfectly. I wanted to buy an eyeliner for a long time so was delighted to see that instead of a mascara (which many others got in their December boxes), I got the eyeliner pen. I've used it once and love it because its felt tip offers an ideal dispersion of the product to draw an accurate line. It lasts for hours without smudging so that's awesome too.
Next up is two samples of Bioderma mattifying sunscreen fluid. This product regulates sebum quality to keep pores from becoming clogged and prevent the appearance of blemishes due to sun exposure. I am always in need of sunscreen so am keen to try it out. Then there's this a tiny sample of Ananda light moisturiser which smells exactly like like their aloe rose gel which we got in another Envy Box a few months ago. This light non greasy cream is infused with balancing rose and hydrating sandalwood to stimulate cell renewal and protect against environmental aggressors to make skin soft supple and rejuvenated. Lastly is a whitening mask by O3+ which is infused with vitamin c and active ingredients from natural botanical extracts. I haven't tried it yet but I know that O3+ products are used in salons for facials so this should be good.
Overall, the box has some good products and was definitely much better compared to last month's box which was probably the most disappointing of the year. Anyway, the new year is almost here so I look forward to what's in store for us in the January Envy Box!
