Hello darlings! In the month of March I decided to give Vellvette a try and went ahead with the 3-month prepaid scheme.
For those who don’t know, Vellvette is a beauty box service in India which is a monthly subscription. You get a box of beauty, skin, hair related goodies for a very reasonable Rs. 399. Essentially it’s similar to GlossyBox or BirchBox.
I received my April box last week and thought I’d post the march one as well.
April 2013 Vellvette Box
01. Figs & Rogue : Aloe and Mint Balm (Full Size)
This smells a lot like Badger Balm. I think this is something I’d use more on my feet, the scent isn’t very appealing to me for use on rest of the body.
02. The Nature’s Co. : Red and Green Tea Sun Screen Lotion (Sample Size)
This will be well used on an upcoming trip.
03. Motives : Mardi Gras Palette (Full Size)
This palette contains 3 eye shadows and 6 lip glosses. I’m not too impressed with quality. the eyeshadows aren’t too pigmented. I still have to try this out properly, will post a review when I do.
March Vellvette Box
01. Lush : Dream Cream (Sample Size)
This is so soft and feels lovely on the skin. You have to be carefulwith the packaging though, it can get messy and leak.
02. Remy Laure : DNA Beauty Cream + Sun cream (Sample size)
I generally don’t even bother with stuff in packets. I might try it later in the month though.
03. Purely Pro Blush : Lovely (Full Size)
The colour is really nice, so is the pigmentation.
04. OPI : Red lights ahead where… (Sample Size)
I really hope I get a tiny OPI every month. I love these! And this colour is bright and gorgeous!
05. Meiji : Amino Collagen Skin Glow
Umm… I don’t really know what to say. These went straight in the bin. Products is fine but giving food supplements is a bit much.
So overall, I really liked the March one a lot. Despite the collagen thing, there were 3 products that I absolutely know I will use. April was so-so for me. I still have May left… looking forward to it.
