My Envy Box April 2015 Review

Holla everyone!

I am quite excited to have ordered and received, my first Envy box. Yes, My Envy Box.

This is my first ever Envy Box and if you are wondering why am I posting about it in May, let me tell you that I have requested this box specially last week. Thankfully, the gracious The Envy Box team took my request and sent me a back dated box at such a short notice. You guys won my heart over :)

Here's a look of My Envy Box April-

What's Inside My April Envy Box
I knew the content before hand and hence ordered the box. So there wasn't any surprise element for me in the box.

This is what came inside, in samples-

  • Za True White Exfoliating Clay- 30g deluxe sample. This was one of the main reason for me to order The Envy Box  (Full Size Rs.399/- for 100g). I am yet to try this one and review it here too. Stay tuned.
  • Avene VHP Dry Touch Emulsion SPF50+- Ok I am not a big fan of anything with SPF >15 as it does not suit my sensitive skin. However, I have heard a lot about Avene and would definitely try their products. Sample size of 5 ml (50 ml @ Rs.1250/-)
  • Catrice Longlasting Lip Pencil - It is a Full size product that I received. It is priced at Rs.300/-
  • Marc Jacobs Daisy Dream - I just love all things fragrant. This one came in 1.5ml small ampule ( 100 ml is priced at Rs.5700/- ) However I am loving the full size bottle. isn't that cute?
  • Kama Ayurveda Rejuvenating and Brightening Ayurvedic Night Cream- [Full size Rs.1195/- for 50g]- Well Never used Kama products as such and not sure if I will try this one. Besides, the sample size is too little and hoped that they would have given a bigger bottle than 2 of them from same range.
About "My Envy Box"
The Envy Box is a monthly beauty subscription box wherein you get around 3-4 product sample from luxury brands every month to try and enforce later usage and purchase [if the products delight you enough]

This box is priced at Rs 850/- each and can be ordered from here- Online subscription

Haute Kutir Verdict: I love trying out new things and loving the concept of beauty boxes. Though I am not too fond of many currently available beauty boxes in India. As I feel they sell, what are otherwise given for free samples. Besides, I never liked receiving satchels in name of beauty bags. Knowing TEB penchant for sending satchels and my obstinate fascination with tried and tested products, I stayed away. 

However this time it was different. I quite liked this Envy box and hence went out my way asking the team to see if they can send me the back dated box, which they did very gracefully. They not just honored my request for back dated box but also delivered it quite faster. I have opted for COD facility and wasn't charged additionally on same.

The product range is wide and good. I loved the brands they chose to give except for Kama Ayurveda as I have not tried Kama products ever and wonder what they would be like. I will however try to use the ones in the bag this month. The sample size is so small that they may not add impact but I will get to know about allergies, if any.

As you can see, the box came in a lovely, vivacious summer orange color and the overall packaging was good and much in shape during  product delivery. The contents were wrapped inside paper shreds branded with MEB, unlike the previous boxes wherein the products came enclosed in a sheer satin cloth potlis. However I still feel at at Rs 850, it is rather not economical proposition and the brand could do better by including at least one full sized products, totally removing satchel or including bigger [made to order] sized products. The product mix was good.

Overall, I loved this box. I shall share the product review soon.

My rating for this box: 4/5
