I was already feeling little tired & lazy today and then on the top, my May Subscription Box from #MyEnvyBox turned out to be an average one. It arrived today in the morning. I was not expecting it, yet, it showed. Great. Next I opened the box to check out the products of this months. I was greeted by 2 broken ampoules which were supposed to be the samples of Omofree skin toner. There was nothing left in the tiny glass bottles and the small amount of toner packed in the bottles, was all soaked up by the box itself.
Next I located few samples from L’Occitane. There was a sachet (the tiniest & the thinnest they could make) of hand cream. There were another two even more tiny sachets of face cream and serum. What’s the point? Single usage samples really put me off. They are useless.
Here is the list of the products that I got in #myenvybox.
- The Nature’s Co Mango Creme Body Wash (Rs. 695 for 150ml)
- Cheryl’s Dermashade Sunblock SPF 30 (Rs. 550 for 50gm)
- GreCobe – Green Coffee (Rs. 70 for 1 Sachet, Rs. 540 for 30 sachets)
- Fuschia Herbal Fusion Shampoo (Rs. 450 for 100ml)
- L’occitane Shea Butter Hand Cream (Single usage sachet)
- L’occitane Reine Blanche Illuminating Serum (Single usage sachet)
- L’occitane Reine Blanche Illuminating Cream (Single usage sachet)
- Omorfee – Mellow Drizzle Skin Toner – Found broken 🙁
Let’s move on to the good part of the box. Actually the box itself is a treat to eyes. The light green colored box has water melon slices printed all over. My son really liked the box as he loves water melon very much.
The Nature’s Co Mango Cream Body Wash
It smells of Mangoes of course. I love mangoes (who does not), but I can’t eat them since they break my skin like hell. It would be relaxing to use a Mango body wash instead. After all, the aroma of mangoes is as exotic as it’s taste. Heavenly Sweet.
Cheryl’s Dermashade Sunblock
The sunblock is a nice addition to the box. I have used Cheryl’s Dermacleanse face wash for acne, and I was really impressed. The sunblock is something unspoken necessity all year long. This sunblock is supposed to suit all skin type. I shall try it on my oily & acne prone skin. It is bit costly than other regular sun blocks giving the amount of SPF it has (only 30). But may be it has got some other hidden benefits. Will let you know.
GreCobe – The Green Coffee
Just one sachet? Not fair. But I would try it. Though I am a tea lover, or would go for a cold coffee, if I have to. I have promised myself to get over my addiction to tea and try healthy alternates. Not a fan of Green Tea though, but who knows Green Coffee can hook me up.
Fuschia Herbal Fusion Shampoo
I have been seeing my fellow bloggers to rave about this new brand a lot. Now it’s time that I too try it. Fuschia claims that this is a handmade shampoo containing more of herbal ingredients such as Aloe Vera, Brahmi, Shikakai, Lemon Extracts, Amla Extracts and some very good essential oils. This sounds very exotic. Will be happy to try it.
L’Occitane En Provence Samples
This is a premium luxury brand and is really costly too. Hence, they send out only single usage sachets. Which I think does not serve much purpose. How can a cosmetic product be so potent that it will work in the very first use. I have used such a sample from Smytten Box also, which did not deliver much in single use.
Omofree – Mellow Drizzle Skin Toner
This is a new brand. I was not aware of Omofree, before receiving its sample in my box. The skin toner was packed in two 2ml glass ampules which were found broken as I opened the box. I can see a wet spot in the box.
So this was My Envy Box for May 2017. I think you must be already aware of the products since the brand releases a video of the products even before shipping out the box. That kills all the suspense. Fab Bag is much good in keeping it’s products undisclosed (well, most of them) until you receive them.
About the may box, It is a decent box, if I overlook the broken vile & single usage L’Occitane samples. The body wash, shampoo & sun block are decently sized products to deliver many uses. And I see some happy faces 🙂
I conclude this article here. Have a nice evening, fellas.
