Hello my lovely people out there!!! 😊
Subscription boxes are really very exciting and you get to try and experiment with new products each time. . I have been planning to try at least one subscription box but for no reasons, this plan was getting delayed. And finally it happened this month. Since February is the month of love there has been so many attractive offers going on. So I just gave it a try and purchased my very first subscription box that is My Envy Box. It claimed to have Valentines special Indo- French Luxury products in them. That excited me enough to go for it. My experience with February month's My envy Box was okay-okay types. I am not completely satisfied with this. And the reason for this is, January month's my envy box had so many amazing products when compared to this month's envy box. So let me unbox my envy box and show you guys what all it had and also I will give a quick short review on all of the four products.
Before unboxing let me take out a moment to show you guys how beautiful the box is! A good quality turquoise color box with red color lotus and an Eiffel tower image on it. This month, packaging was more impressive and attractive than the actual products inside.
Glunare- Gold Dust Highlighter
Full Size: 20gm
I received the full sized product which is a yaayyy👍🏻 Glunare highlighter is for a luminous finish that shines with a hint of sparkle. This is all natural, toxin free highlighter comes in a peachy gold hue and can be used as a cheek stain, creme shadow or lipstick.
This gives a beautiful gold tinted glow over the high points. Used it once. Yet to check its staying power. But yeah this gives a good glow but is not highly pigmented. You need to take a good amount of product to get the highlighted cheeks. And this will suit well for fair skin than medium skin tones. One thing which attracted me is that this is natural and toxin free * impressive right*. I pretty much like it.
Avène Micellar Lotion
Price: Rs.1,200 for 200ml
In the box- Price: Rs.100 for 20ml
If you have read my Alternative makeup remover post you must be knowing that I do not prefer makeup removers and use olive oil for removing my makeup. This Micellar lotion which I received 3-in-1 no rinse cleanser, toner and make-up remover based on a micelle principle that releases cleansing agents upon contact with the skin leaving it soft and moisturized.
My quick review
So this was the first time I ever tried a makeup remover and this worked great. It removed all of my base makeup so very easily. Just one swipe and the makeup is removed. But my eyes started to burn when I tried to remove my waterproof mascara. So I would recommend this for removing only the base makeup and not for the eye makeup.
L'Oreal Paris- Kajal Magique Bold
Full size0.35gm for Rs.350
Eye makeup is never complete without an eyeliner. It gives you a bold look in an instant with jus one or two strokes. This bold kajal contains Vitamin E which is good for your skin and has 25% concentrated black pigments that deliver a more prominent and vivid line. Thanks to it's waterproof features, you can wear this kajal in any season.
My quick review
This is the most disappointing product of my envy box🙁 This kajal doesn't go with the theme at all. Like from where does it look like a luxury product? I love L'Oreal Paris but this kajal doesn't suit the theme. And we order subscription products to try out new things. Who doesn't own a kajal these days? Even school girls use kajal and this kajal is very similar to Maybelline colossal kajal in terms of consistency. In terms of pigments, they are black but the color does not appear fully even after two strokes (at least on my lower water line) Maybe I am feeling this after using Faces ultimate black kajal but seriously this was unexpected. However, it can be used as an eyeliner. I really wish they could have given something else for 350 rupees *no offense just my views*
Votre- Face Serum
Full size: 12 ml for Rs.1,670
This aqua rich revitalizing (PM) serum enriched with virgin cold pressed oils, Herbal blends & innovative molecules which help to brighten the complexion and reduce fine lines. Take a small amount of serum and massage onto the face till it is absorbed.
My quick review
This is the only product which satisfied me with my envy box. Got a full-size product and I wanted to try a serum for a long time * especially the dropper packaging 😝* I am currently using it under my eyes alone because I have an oily skin. I have heard that this is suitable for normal to dry skin so I didn't try this all over my face. Because I have just recovered from my breakouts and I don't want to take any risk. So far this product is doing a good job. Hydrating my under eyes very well. A lot of you guys on Instagram have requested me to give a detailed on this serum, so after trying out for a good number of days will do that for sure❤
So these are the four products I received this month in my envy box. If you need a detailed review on any of the particular product do let me know. I would love to do that for you😘
On summing up the price of all the products the total is Rs.3100 but I have got this box for Rs.850. So price-wise this was a fair deal. But on product-wise it could have been better.
One tip I would like to give you is, order this My Envy Box after checking the products on youTube and on blogs. If you are satisfied with the products, you can order it *playing safe* I wish I could have done that. Overall my experience was not too bad neither too good with My Envy Box. If I had ordered January month's envy box then definitely I would have been flying in the air😅
Hope this unboxing cum quick review helped you. And if you have any queries regarding this, feel free to ask in the comments section or through mail or DM me on Instagram😊 If you liked this then please follow and subscribe me.
Lots of Love
