My Envy Box is famous for the presence of products of International brands. But, this August, there was a twist – all Indian brands. Also, the packaging is very different with a big India-inspired motif representing various popular things of India. There are just 4 products in this box but each product is usable and great.

Around 2 months back, my skin was looking very dull and lifeless. The stress of shopping and running around all day was talking its toll. I needed something to work on my skin that could give instant results. The best deal was to use scrubs. Just weeks ahead my wedding, I could not try something entirely new for my skin. I actually searched my own blog to discover something that have worked for my skin. And then I discovered The Body Shop Vitamin C Microdermabrasion Scrub for Dull Skin.
I went to store just to buy that scrub but since they were running offers, I purchased 4 The Body Shop products.

I love 'gifts with purchase', especially when you get something that you can actually use. Around 6 weeks back, I discovered that FE was giving this gift box worth Rs 1800 on purchase worth 5K. This was a great way to try the new products of the Forest Essentials Iced Pomegranate & Kerala Lime range because their mini sizes are not sold separately. This is the new range from Forest Essentials. The products from this range have a milder fragrance and is completely different from the heavy Indian fragrances of other ranges of FE. I had to get this box. But, 5K worth of purchase was difficult because I just hauled that store (~13K FE Haul).
Anyways, I discovered few more things that I wished to try and brought home this gorgeous baby pink box with me.

Ask me how many brands retails a proper eyeshadow palette in India? None…till Maybelline decided to launch The N*des to India. Makeup lovers either have to depend on international shipping or local/little known China imports. Most brands either sells monos, duos or quads. Even in those quads it is almost impossible to get a palette with mix of shimmer and mattes. I discovered this situation when I finally decided to replace Sleek Ohh So Special with something else…plus my favorite Physicians Formula palette also broke. So, in short, I am really happy when I discovered that Maybelline The N*des Palette in India. I went to mall just 2 days before my wedding just to get this #priorities
I can finally forgive Maybelline for discontinuing Chai Latte (the only natural everyday quad with mix of gold shimmer and matte brown) because now we have a 12 color pan. At first look, the colors seems to be arranged haphazardly but on the back of the palette, I found that the 12 colors are arranged as 3 quads, 4 trios and 6 duos of complimentary colors. This makes it easier for beginners to work with colors.

The Body Shop shower gels are things for addicts. Once you start using them, it is hard to part away. I always have at least one in my bathroom shelf. No matter how hard I try to avoid them, I always end up purchasing them. On my last trip to Body Shop in Kolkata, I discovered that Honeymania shower gel was on 50% off. I had no intentions to increase my luggage but then I purchased it because I have never tried this variants #ExcusesThatAddictsMake
