Last week while browsing through my FB wall I came upon this ad for a beauty/birch box. I thought it was for something that would be available abroad as all the birch boxes of India have disappeared from the scene without a trace. But to my surprise the price was listed in INR. As usual I jumped on it. For me Blisscovered left a big gaping hole when it decided to quit its operations after a mere 3 months. Well now enters The Vellvette Box. I just hope that they are around for a while coz this is such a boon for beauty bloggers plus not to mention exciting as one gets to try out new stuff without having to dish out oodles of money.
Well moving on. They offer 3 luxury deluxe samples for a mere Rs. 399/- which if you actually compare costs you much less per sample as compared to Blisscovered (Rs. 700/- for 5 samples). Plus they have 3/6/12 months subscriptions as well for Rs. 1099/2099/3999 /- respectively. As before, you would have to fill out a questionnaire so that they can customize the box as per your preference. And they have the Cash-On-Delivery option…so yea!! I placed an order last week and got my box today. Super excited!! Lets take a peek shall we…
The packing is cute and compact. It is a black cardboard box with gold lettering (classic) tied off with a pink bow (awww). Inside it was a welcome note, individual product description cards, coupon cards and 4 (yes you read it right – 4 samples, they sent in a bonus one) deluxe product samples.
|Each product has it own discount coupon for varying prices|
Honestly when I ordered the box I was very skeptical about the kind of samples I would be getting. But I must say Im definitely impressed with the brands that they have sent over. There is no Crabtree outlet/presence in Kolkata and I’m super happy to get a sample from this brand. I have not really tried out the products mentioned so I will be posting individual reviews for them. So be on a look out for that. Moving on to the beauties –
They came wrapped in pink papery plastic. If you look at it, the Crabtree sample is 25g whereas the full size product is 50g which retails for Rs. 795/- so not bad at all that I dished out Rs. 399/- in all. The mascara is about 2-3 inches (actually 2 inches for the product containing tube and 3.5 inches in total) containing 3.5 ml of product which is a good amount. Clarins and Guess samples are about the size that you can pick up from the cosmetic counter. All in all a really good and impressive box.
So divas, intrigued yet?!? I will definitely be purchasing from them again. Cant wait to see what they will have on offer next month. If you are interested then go to the following site to place your order – http://www.vellvette.com. Oh ya I forgot to mention, you can purchase the full sized products from their site at a discounted price. These mentioned products are available along with many others.
