My Envy Box (March) - Review

Hello girls,

Today I am going to share my views on the March My Envy Box! Yes you heard about it from me last on October 2013. As it was purely skin and hair care oriented one back then, I was not keen on subscribing it. But the Jan and Feb boxes which had products from Forest Essentials and Thalgo made me subscribe to the March box.

For those who are new, My Envy Box is an Indian Beauty Box that sends 5 luxury product samples for us to try out. One month subscription is priced at a modest INR. 850/- and for each purchase you make, you get envy points which can be used for purchasing products at my envy box website.

This month, I received the following goodies in their white box:

Innisfree Green Tea Pure Sleeping Pack – 2 Small sachets

Innisfree Green Tea Pure Sleeping Pack review

Sleep Masks are new to me. I tried one and it was great. My Skin felt soft and supple and good. I really liked this one. I have saved up another sachet. I want to buy the full sized product. It is priced at INR. 900 for 80 ml. It is a definite hit for me.
EAU Thermale Avéne Very High Protection Emulsion SPF 50 – 5 ml Tube

Eau Thermal Avene SPF 50 Sample review

Who does not like SPF 50 non-oily emulsion in March? In Chennai we don’t have spring and autumn. We go directly to full-fledged summers. It felt little heavy on application but my skin absorbed it in no time. It is definitely a hit and I can use it up.
Eminence Organics Sour Cherry Whip Moisturizer – Sample.

I love it. My skin drinks it up. It makes my skin feel softer and nourished. Not greasy at all. To top it all, it did not break out my skin. Hit!! But I am not sure if I would love to try the full sized product as it costs a whopping INR. 4393/-.
René Furterer Okara Protect Color Radiance Enhancing Shampoo – 15 ml.

Rene Furterer Okara Protect Color Radiance Enhancing Shampoo sample

My eyes have this extremely bad habit of catching all confusing things.
Well, the card says it is a shampoo but the sample says it is a conditioner – radiance enhancing conditioner. So, which one is it? Anyway, it is for color treated hair and a miss for me.
Narciso Rodriguez  Perfume Card – 4 No’s.

Narciso Rodriguez Perfume Card sample

I don’t like perfume cards. So I haven’t tried it. They could have sent a tiny vial or something. These are not my thing. Miss.
Apart from the five samples, they have included two more things:
Pipa Bella – 20% off Coupon

This website is new to me. I was surprised to find pretty jewellery pieces there. I did not browse the site well but I am sure, I will use this up.
One printed cloth cover
The cloth looked pretty. 

What I Liked:
  • Gorgeous white box. I love box packing.
  • My skin loved the sleeping pack and moisturizer.
  • Loved the extra discount coupons.
  • Purchases of Beauty boxes and products from their boutique earn realistic points which we can use to redeem. (I got zoya nail paint from mine).
  • INR. 850/- is quite affordable considering the fact that you get to try luxury products.

What I did not like:
  • Brands dealing with luxury products making mistakes are such a big turn off. Is it a conditioner or shampoo?
  • Full sized product of the Innisfree sleeping pack is not available in their site yet. (Then what’s the point of subscribing to a beauty box if I am not able to buy a full sized product?)
  • No Makeup samples.
  • I did not prefer the perfume “card” thingie. It is a personal choice.

 Indian Beauty Maniac’s Rating

My Envy Box is good but I won’t be repurchasing until they start including makeup samples.

** I have removed the coupon codes from the pictures. Not sure if I can show them here in my blog and this review is done only for the sole purpose of sharing my experience. It is not aimed at criticising any brand or product.
