Kama Ayurveda launched three unique gift boxes for the festive season. I got two (this and Kannauj Box), and you must have seen the haul by now. I know that Diwali is over, but the box is still available. So, without any delay, I wanted to talk about this.

The Shubh box has four limited edition soaps inspired by the Pooja thali so, there is Haldi, Chandan, tulsi, and the quintessential nariyal. (Turmeric, Sandalwood, Basil, and Coconut). I am nuts about coconuts so, I had to have this box. Also, there is a Hand Carved Soap Holder made from stone. Each article comes in a box, and all of them are housed together inside a Mughal inspired box making it ideal for gifting.

Price: Rs 1500. Complimentary with purchase worth Rs 4000 from Kama Ayurveda.

All the soaps are well made and properly cured. They do not melt when kept in the bathroom. They form a light lather, clean properly, and non-drying. But, I need something moisturizing after use these days as it is super-dry weather in Delhi now. Although it is not drying, I won't recommend them for face (especially in this season). They are smaller than the usual size so, feel like those luxury soaps your get in great hotels. The fragrance is true to the name but thankfully the turmeric one smells like neroli. The scent is not intense and hence, does not transfer to the skin.

But, what made me run to the box was the handcrafted soap case made of stone. The case fits the soaps perfectly and looks super glam. But, the case is not practical. There are no holes in the bottom like any soap case must have. If the soap has too much water on it, then it won't be able to go out. Thankfully, the soaps are hard so, that didn't happen. I happen to keep the Chandan one couple of days back on the sink to use on face (do not use on the face!). When I used the sink to splash water on my face some water might have seeped inside the case through holes on top, which could not escape as there was no hole in the bottom. I was not aware of this otherwise I would have drained the water. When I opened the case last night, I found the cute little sandalwood soap sitting in a pool of liquid soap! As the soap is perfectly cured, the soap survived the horrifying experience with very little damage. (One reason why you should be careful for how long soap was cured!)

Overall: The Kama Ayurveda Shubh box is not very expensive at Rs 1500 considering it is a limited gift box from Kama Ayurveda. Especially when there are just a handful brands which brings out festive gift boxes. With the beautiful design on the box, it does not need further gift packaging. The box is not out of the world but I would still recommend this for your loved ones or yourself. I am not going to use to soap case for soap anymore. Instead, it is sitting on my bedside table to hold any jewelry which I take off while sleeping. đŸ˜‡
