My Envy Box December Edition 2013



My Envy Box December Edition 2013
Hi girls!!!
Beauty sample box service is still new in India. I will introduce this new beauty sample box today called My Envy Box. Sounds good!!! Isn’t it? They made their debut in the month of August this year 2013. My Envy Box is the leading discovery commerce platform. They are redefining the retail process by offering consumers a unique and personalized way to discover, learn about, and shop for the best beauty, grooming, and lifestyle products on the market. 
This Envy box cost rupees 850 per month for which you get 5 trial sized beauty products (typically 2ml-10ml) from the top international luxury and prestige brands. The box will be delivered to your door step every month with no extra cost.
Lucky 50 people can get a copy of the latest edition of the Elle magazine.
Apart from that you get, 213 rupees worth (25%) of ENVY points to redeem in their store where you can but the luxury brand products.

If I have a look at their website that has three sections:
The Envy Box: Each month subscriber will get a box of samples of leading beauty products
Content: Learn about the latest product and trends in beauty from our beauty experts at Elle magazine and our in-house beauty experts.
Shop: When you are ready for more of the products you sampled, you can purchase full-size versions directly from the Boutique.
They have a generous loyalty program that rewards you every time you shop, refer friends, and give feedback on your monthly samples. You can redeem Envy Points and save on all orders on the online boutique.
Now, let’s come to the actual box that I got.

My Envy Box comes in a parcel with the box being boxed inside a card board box, to prevent any damage while shipping. I received this December edition of the Elle Magazine as well along with my box.

The box is a pale orange colored box which is made out of cardboard. It is very sturdy that you can definitely use it to store some of your products or you can even use it for gifting something in it. It has magnetic chips that keep it shut properly.
Inside the box, there are cards that carry information about the samples that they have included. The price of the full sized product, how to use the product etc.
The products are wrapped inside a big sheet of paper with “My Envy Box” written all over giving it all together a luxurious feel and the box.
Right now, as they have not customized the box, every box contains the same products.

These are the products I got in my Envy Box:

Avene rebalancing Soothing Emulsion
Full sized product price is 1200 rupees for 50 ml. The sample contains 5 ml that can be used for 2-3 times. It claims to hydrate the skin and keep it soft and radiant. I will be using it and let’s see how it fares for me.

Remy Laure Eye Contour Cream
I have seen this brand on some shopping sites but it isn’t very popular though. The full sized product is for 2355 INR for a 30 ml tube. Sample tube has 10 ml which is good to use for around more than 10 times as when it comes to eye creams, a little goes a long way!
It is a gel textured cream that is said to decongest blood circulation that causes dark circles and puffiness.

Remy Laure Eye Contour gel
Full size is for 2320 rupees for 30 ml. Sample size has got 10 ml and can be used for about 15 uses. It helps reducing puffiness and dark circles.

Remy Laure Eye Relaxing mask
Full size product is for rupees 2065 for 30 ml. sample size is for 10 ml. It’s an eye mask that should be kept for 3 minutes on the eyelids and then rinse off. It helps sooth and relaxes the eye area. I will be definitely using it!

Rene Furterer Naturia Gentle balancing shampoo
Full size product is for 1100 rupees for 150 ml. I have not heard about this brand. It is quite new to me. The sample contains 15 ml that could be used for 2 washes for me as per my hair length. It is said to give glossy sheen to the hair with volume.

Roberto Cavalli New woman fragrance
Full sized fragrance is for 50 ml for 3575 and 75 ml for 4875 rupees.
Sample contains a tiny spray bottle with 1.2 ml of the fragrance. It’s basically a floral fragrance with lot of warmth in it. I have used exactly the same fragrance ages ago; so, don’t remember the name but it was so similar, that I was literally teleported to that time. I used it once and wish the staying power could have been better. Fragrance is a personal affair and may not work for everyone.

Bonne Maman Strawberry Jam
This was a surprise as I really liked the cute bottle and also wasn’t expecting such a thing in a beauty box. But never mind, it tastes damn delicious, that’s what I am more focused at!

My thoughts about My Envy Box December Edition 2013
First of all, the orange box is a treat as is very sturdy and can serve many purpose for you! It does give this feel of having a luxury beauty sample box.
Price of the box is a bit high, if the magazine is not there specially.
Coming to the products, out of the six products, 4 products are from brands that I am not very familiar with, though I will not deny that it’s always good to open up for new brands and explore them.
I got three eye related products which I wish could have been two like an eye gel and an eye mask or the cream or the mask and I could have got something else instead of any one of the Remy Laure eye cream or gel.
I liked the Perfume from Roberto Cavalla as it suits my taste, but it may not appeal to everyone! Or I should say, it’s hard to choose a fragrance for somebody else when you are not aware about their liking.

Right now, there is no customization of the products that will be there in the box as they have started out, but I wish that it will be good if the subscribers are given a chance to choose their samples for themselves. Let’s say, 3 sample products are chosen by the subscribers as per their liking and 3 by the My Envy Box team so that the surprise factor also remains. Moreover, if you are not happy with the samples, at least you have the samples chosen by you to make you feel satisfied with the box. What say?
