My Envy Box October 2016: Unboxing and Review of the Third Anniversary Box

My Envy Box October 2016 reviewed by Sramana
The trend of beauty subscription boxes has really picked up in India and the major credit goes to My Envy Box. They not only introduced us to beauty boxes but have also made it easier for us to try so many international luxury brands as well as new Indian brands.For me the whole idea of subscription boxes was to try out good, high end products at a much more affordable price and then decide whether to shell out bomb for full sizes.

1) Forest Essentials- Facial Cleansing Paste : Luxury sample
Full size : 30 gm ( Rs 1,850/-)
In the box : 15 gm ( Rs 925/-)

I already have this product and this facial cleanser personifies luxury skincare. It is a traditional blend of rich Almond, Pistachio and fresh Turmeric paste that gently cleanses with deep nourishment and skin replenishment. It also contains natural hydrators including buttermilk, floral waters, organic honey and fresh aloe leaf juice to gently polish the skin. I love this cleanser as it deep cleanses and adds an instant glow to my face. This sample alone costs more than the entire box. Too happy to receive this.

2) AYCA- Jasmine Body wash : Luxury sample
Full size : 200 ml ( Rs 875/-)
In the box : 100 ml ( Rs 438/-)

This has an amazing floral fragrance. I have never tried this brand before. It is a mild, foaming gel cleanser for all skin types that moisturizes the skin, leaving it soft, clean and fragrant with the relaxing scent of Jasmine. Made from all natural coconut derivatives. Looking forward to try this one.

3) Vert- Loose Powder :
 Full size product ( 10 gm; Rs 1,250/-)

I have never tried loose powder as I find them quite messy. This groundbreaking handmade loose powder makeup is made of natural powder of rose petals and French clay. It is formulated for all skin types including dry, sensitive or acne-prone skin. Can be worn over liquid moisturisers or directly on bare skin for a radiant finish. This versatile powder can be used as an eye shadow, highlighter or a blush. Will give it a shot.

4) Vichy Ideal White Brightening Deep Cleansing Foam : Travel size
Full size : 100 ml ( Rs 1,550/-) 
In the box : 15 ml ( Rs 230/-)

I love Vichy products. Their products suit well to my sensitive skin. This foaming wash is for refreshed and even luminous skin. Happy to receive a Vichy Product in this box.

5) Nertia- Nail Art :
( Full size; 1 pack ; Rs 80/-)
I am not a fan of artificial nails and nail arts. This is a pack of artificial stick-on nails. Not looking forward to try this on. Will gift to my sister who loves these things.

I also received 3 bonus products in this Anniversary Edition box. Let's explore :

1) SkinYoga Marigold footsoak ( 220 gm) : This is for the relaxation of your feet. It contains Marigold Petals, sea salt and pure coconut oil. Definitely worth trying.

2) L'Occitane En Provence Volumizing shampoo and conditioner ( 6 ml sachet each) : I love L'Occitane products. I used their repairing shampoo and conditioner range and loved them. Will use this real soon.

3) Roberto Cavalli ( Paradiso Azzurro) ( 1.2 ml vial) : I love perfume vials. They are easy to travel with and is a great way to get introduced to high end fragrance. I have already 2/3 vials of this one earlier which I received in earlier boxes and loved the fragrance.

Overall : 

Like :
The total value of the October Envy Box  is a whopping Rs 2,923/- that too excluding the bonus products, that is 4 times the money you pay for. That way this box is a super awesome deal.

Dislike : 


  • 1) Haven't found any luxury brand except Forest Essentials and the small vial from Roberto Cavalli   ( bonus product may not be same for all boxes ) .
  • 2) I missed a good make-up item ( may be a high-end lip/eye product) in this special edition box.












Box provided by the brand in exchange of honest review.
