The concept of beauty boxes in India is a fairly new one. I have been lusting after the gorgeous beauty and luxury boxes posted by international bloggers and as soon I came to know of a reliable beauty box in India I signed up for subscription.
There is a relatively small wait list. I signed up in Dec 2012 and was informed that subscriptions are closed for Dec box and I got a reminder from them in Jan that they are open for subscription (1 month/3 months/ 6 months/ 1 year)
The price of a box is Rs 399 + shipping.It gets progressively cheaper if you pay before hand for more boxes. I have paid for 3 months in advance so one box comes to Rs 366 + free shipping
Now to my January 2013 Vellvette box
Since this is my first ever Beauty box I was super excited about this one.I received it yesterday.
It is a cute tiny black box tied with a golden ribbon.
It has three products along with cards on how to use them
I like reading the labels on shampoos and conditioners in the shower...so yes I loved the description cards.
The Nyassa Belgian Chocolate Sugar scrub :It smells amazing.It smells so sweet like chocolate and candy…hmm…I couldn’t resist and licked a teeny bit …it is not sweet!!! Even though you can see the sugar in it ,its salty…But the smell is absolutely sweet and divine.
Clinique clarifying lotion 2 : I used it twice till now. It smells slightly alcoholic like a toner or astringent would. It said on the package that there might be a slight tingling or stinging but luckily I didn't experience any.
Description: Instantly dissolves all lingering makeup & impurities Removes dead cells without drying out your skin Greatly improves makeup application Speeds up the natural renewal of skin cells Provides an immediate cooling & refreshed sensation, especially for dry skin type
OPI nail polish
I have always wanted to try OPI nail polishes… so now I will.
The box was tied in a golden ribbon. The box is quite sturdy and I will use it to store nail polishes or rings in my dresser. My first impression of the box was that it was so tiny…It looked quite big when I saw it on beauty blogs.But of course everything was teeny sample sized.
Overall I am quite happy with the beauty box and am eagerly waiting to see what products I get in the coming months.
