My Envy Box 2016 Tropical Beauty Edition Unboxing and Mini Review
|My Envy Box 2016 Tropical Beauty Edition Unboxing, Review|
I saw this yellow My Envy Box on their Instagram page and since then I was waiting for it to come. I loved the print - the flowers, the bird, the green leaves and the bright yellow box. The last time I got this happy was their 2nd Anniversary Box.
I received it yesterday but I wanted to try the products so, that I do could a mini review as well.
|My Envy Box May 2016 Unboxing - Island Kiss Puerto Berry Blush Lip Moisturiser, Gulnare Handmade Skincare SeaFlo Face Wash, Roots and Above Lemon Essential and Votre Botanical Toning Mist|
I was already aware of few of the products that were going to be part of the box so; I was excited about the products as well. For example, I was sure that I was going to get Island Kiss Puerto Berry Blush Lip Moisturiser (Full size, Rs 499 for 14g). I have seen many praising it. I wanted to get it but, I was not sure if I should pay Rs 499 for a tinted jelly lip balm. I am glad that I finally got to try it. Island Kiss is a brand based in Goa, but the lip balms are manufactured by Asta Berry Info Sciences in Himachal. Island Kiss lip balms are 100% natural, petroleum-free and non-toxic. They retail two other variants. Those two are not tinted.
Puerto Berry Blush is tinted and looks fab on lips. The tint last for long, and as you reapply, the color grows stronger and lasts longer. It can ever be used as a blush. The pin-up girls packing needs special mention. I am not sure if it justifies the price tag so, I am glad that it is beauty box find :D

|Gulnare Handmade Skincare SeaFlo Face Wash|
Another product that I was looking forward to was the Gulnare Handmade Skincare SeaFlo Face Wash (Full size, Rs 350 for 120ml). Any new natural skincare brand is always welcome. It is a gentle, zero-foaming face cleanser - something like my favorite Cetaphil Cleansing Lotion. But, it is tad drying if you use more than a coin size. Nothing much is mentioned on the bottle about the brand or the product. But, it says that it is 100% natural. As ingredients, it has Wheat germ oil, Grape Seed Oil, Cucumber and castile soap mentioned in the bottle. I am going to use it as a morning cleanser from now on.
|Roots and Above Lemon Essential and Votre Botanical Toning Mist|
But, even before I opened to box to dig the lip balm and face wash out, I could smell lemons. Not dishwashing liquid or floor cleaner type lemon but natural lemons that you use to make lemonades on a hot summer afternoon.After I opened the box, I discovered Roots and Above Lemon Essential Oil (10ml sample, Rs 375 for 50ml). I have never tried lemon essential oil because I prefer orange and lemongrass more. There is a list of ways to use it, but it sounds more like marketing and less like a knowledge transfer document. :P If you used lemon essential oil then do let me know how you used it.
Another product (the last one in the box) is Votre Botanical Toning Mist (50ml sample, Rs 800 for 100ml). A facial mist is the best thing for summer. Slightly fragrant, mostly water and does not leave any sticky feeling behind. Thumbs up!
Overall: As you can see that I loved the box, All the samples of generous, the products are good and apt for the weather - a light tint for lips, a lemon essential oil, a gentle cleanser and a face mist. Loved the work they put into curating the box and special applaud for the person who designed it the box.
By paying Rs 850 for the box, you are getting products worth Rs 1324 along with the vibrant yellow box. Need I say more? Go and get yours!
NOTE: There is a Kiehl's voucher for a complimentary skin consultation. But, here is one fact - Kiehl's is a very friendly brand and you can always get your skin consultated there for free. You do not need a voucher. Please do not buy the box just for that.
