Inside My Envy Box April 2016
I am going to share my experience with my first ever Envy Box. I don’t know what exactly held me back but I did not subscribe for any beauty box since last couple of years. May be I was not happy receiving products of unknown brands or may be I felt that they are not curated appropriately and sometimes products were repetitive!! While writing this post, I guess I am going down the memory lane ,fishing out facts behind my reluctance . As far as Envy Box is concerned, I have had done my R & D , liked it and thought of giving it a chance .
Before moving ahead,I will like to delineate here few facts about Envy Box!! Envy box is monthly subscription beauty box.Once you subscribe and make payment to the service , you will receive a box curated around your beauty needs every month. The box arrives with samples(mostly 5) of Luxury/Prestige Brands.You can subscribe for your box here!! It’s a novel way of trying out new products and exploring new brands.
Vanilla on My Envy Box April 2016
Here are some pictures and my opinion on My Envy Box April 2016 !!
I found the look and feel of pastel peach box with golden accents absolutely adorable. Lid of the box seal the box snug with magnetic closure.I am considering to use the box for jewelry storage or for something else on my dresser.I found the “Heart Key “ of Label Life so charming. I received total 5 products – 3 full sized and 2 samples!!
Inside My Envy Box I received
- BBlunt Spotlight Hair Polish for Instant Shine ( Full size 150 ml : 550 INR)
- Fran Wilson Mood Matcher Lipstick- Orange( Full size 3.5g: 550 INR)
- Givenchy Live Irresistible Eau De Parfum ( Sample size 1ml :116 INR)
- O3+ Milk Scrub( Full size 50gm : 385 INR)
- Rene Furterer Paris Naturia Extra Gentle Balancing Shampoo- Hair Care ( Sample Size 15ml)
I have applied for 3 month subscription so monthly Envy Box costs me around 800 INR. I have received products for ~1700-1800 INR. On economic grounds, this appears to be a great value for money.I also received 10% discount coupon for purchasing any beauty product with one month validity.Also being a subscriber,I am entitled for 20% discount on purchase of Designer Jewellery Box!! These deals sounds awesome and lucrative.
On to the products, I am happy that The Label Life team did not opted to send me random foundation or sparkly gloss. I have received two products in hair care,one in makeup,one in skincare and one perfume. I am going to talk about parfum sample here and will do separate posts on Full size products.
BBlunt Spotlight Hair Polish for Instant Shine
My first BBlunt Hairspray!! Excited as BBlunt Hair products are rife these days in Indian Blog Scene. I am not too much into Hair sprays and gadgets but will still love to check this out. I have read good reviews on this product so keen to check it out.
Fran Wilson Mood Matcher Lipstick- Orange
A beginner or teenager may like the idea of mood matcher lipstick but not me. I was not thrilled to find this but the shade turned out pretty on me. Still I would have loved my lipstick more lady like!!I will be reviewing the shade orange soon on blog . I can see that they chose the color of lipstick as per my skin tone so hurray!!
Givenchy Live Irresistible EDP
Givenchy Live Irresistible EDP has mixed fruity, floral and spicy fragrance. I smell predominantly spicy initially while it lives on me more floral. I loved the beautiful textured glass bottle of the perfume ( On pamphlet sent along with). It has soft sillage on me. I will label it as day fragrance or fragrance I will love to wear at work. Live Irresistible Parfum is a limited edition collection released by Givenchy in mid 2015 somewhere. It can be good pick up for people who love spicy and fruity notes .
O3+ Milk Scrub
Happy Here!! My Spa lounge use O3+ products which they don’t sell. I was excited to find this in my box and that too full size. So vanilla points here!! Beside this Milk’s lactic acid helps in lightening the tan so I see putting this into good use for summers. I am almost on verge of finishing Garner Pure active Blackhead uprooting scrub,so a perfect entry O3+ milk scrub.
Rene Furterer Paris Naturia Extra Gentle Balancing Shampoo
I have received 15 ml sample size of this shampoo. Honestly amount I received is not enough for a shampoo. I was not delighted to find this in my box. I would have rather loved a body care or body wash over this for this size. But the good part is that the range is designed around Dry Hair !! I always love testing shampoos with their conditioner counterparts and a samples size of minimum 4 washes !! I will update on shampoo on blog soon.
VANILLA RATINGS 8/10
I almost loved everything in My April Envy Box eventually though!! Only product that failed to excite me was Rene Furterer Shampoo but I can still use it as my Travel shampoo. Other than that I find that box is great value for money. This was my first box and I hope – the Label Life team will keep up my excitement in future too.
