We all know the thrill of shopping and especially when it is online, we just cant wait to open up our goody box. Something similar happened to me today when I received my Vellvette box for February, I am overwhelmed to share my thoughts with our readers, on behalf of IMBB 🙂 I received it in the nick of time.
My first thoughts were definitely fantastic about this one, this is buzz word around but you would know how happy you get only when you receive your own copy of the box. 🙂 I received three product inside, all of which I absolutely love, two are essentials and one is a gorgeous blush, it seems like it is handpicked for me, but I think the products are very thoughtfully picked up for us, these would suit and be very useful for most of us.
Take a look about what Vellvette – The Company is:

When I received the Vellvette Box, I was very impressed with how thoughtfully the things come to you. They are not just thrown into the box, they come to you tied with a cute ribbon,(mine was red ), they are wrapped in a pink sheet, you have a personalized card reading out what they are all about, you have detailed cards about each of the product and also fabulous offers on full size purchase of the product, don’t we just love offers?
The way the box is delivered to you says a lot about the company, I like this personal touch to the products.I received a cute magnet for it is the month of love! very thoughtful indeed!
Lancome Gentle Softening Cleansing Fluid for face and eyes: 15ml (first Lancome skin care for me)
Figs & Rouge 100 % organic aloe and mint balm: 17ml (my first organic stuff I guess)
Purely pro cosmetics blush: 3.7 gms (not sure of what the shade is called but it is gorgeous!)
Obviously I could not wait to open the products when I got them,all the products were sealed (the ones which could be) the blush was the most pretty pink and was literally calling out to me, the balm, in fact the only lips, body, face and hand balm I have, most of us have lip balms but this one is a unique one.Then you have an essential cleanser from Lancome, my first Lancome skin care product in fact , what better way to test how it works for us, if it wasn’t for my Vellvette box.
Honestly, the balm and the blush are huge enough for me, I mean, if I use the balm for another 2 months for my lips, I wont need a lip balm. The blush I would say would last me ages, considering how pigmented and smooth it is, the blush is the size of may be half of what we get with Colorbar, this is where you feel the Rs.399 you invest in your Vellvette box is value for money.
The Lancome product that I got is Gentle Face and eyes cleansing fluid, the sample was full, unlike most samples you would get around, which aren’t even full 😛 It is perfect for travel and for trial so that you could get your own full sized copy of the product. In fact I am carrying it to Pondicherry for the weekend.
The balm is absolutely awesome, you could use it for rough spots, cuticles, lips, elbows and hands, and I intend to use it for my lips and cuticles, it is very minty ( in a good way) has a tingle to it and I am already loving it in a day.
The blush is a peachy pink with slight shimmer to it, it is a great color for office, day wear and the shade they have picked up is going to be suited to many of us, very thoughtful. The pigmentation is awesome, overall, all your products are top quality.
Let me talk about the size roughly, the balm and blush are big enough like your regular balms and blushes, the Lancome bottle is as tall as your regular lipstick, if that helps.
Love the fact that you get to try new brands, luxury brands, two of the brands I had never known about, but still they were so fantastic.This box is a great way to start your collection, try new brands that you would possible want to get more of in the future, and I am assured that all my products will be top quality, considering what I got in this box.
Couple of the products are big enough for most of us,the Lancome one is tiny but a great way to test how it goes for my face and eyes. Moreover, I could always get a discount on full size purchase like this:
There are a whole lot of products available and all my favorite brands are listed in there (The Body Shop, Bath and Body Works, Benefit, Elizabeth Arden, Forest Essentials, Clinique, Lush, Clarins, OPI, Lancome, Lush, NYX, Max Factor, L’Occitane, etc.)
When we like a product sample, we dont need to look for it around, we could shop it from the site itself.
The element of surprise!! Now this is what I shop online for, Vellvette box is all about the thrill with the assurance that my products will be top of the line, yet I cannot wait to get some more, in fact for shopaholics like us, the annual subscription of INR 3999 (prepaid) is really nothing but an investment, considering you know you would get stuff suited to your skin types, choice, makeup sense, we spend more than that in a month over futile things online which we do not even need, don’t we,so I have decided where my 3999 (prepaid)is going to be invested for the coming whole year!
Why I highly recommend we subscribe to The Vellvette box:
- Value for money, there is no way other than this, you could get 3 fantastic products to try out, in as little as 399! we all deserve the pampering and even less in a yearly subscription.
- The surprise element! This is what I would be subscribing to the Vellvette box for, I love to shop and when their is the thrill factor involved about what I would be getting in my box next, no one could stop me from spending on it.
- Trial, a great way to try out stuff before spending money on a full size item,this is our chance to try new top quality brands (Figs and rouge and purely pro really took me by surprise, considering I had never heard of them.
- High end products, we would never otherwise buy or try, this makes it available for all of us, it cant get better that I am trying Lancome now with the box.
- I would like to know how it will be customized for me, I would not always like to recieve the same products that everyone around has got, since I have filled in my details on the site, I would love to get products for my skin type, age, makeup taste and the like.for example, I love lipsticks, so what are chances of me getting a lipstick with my next box? 😛
- May be we could get an even better box with it, 😛 just a thought. Of course I am going to use it like all of us to keep my knick-knacks.
- If some products are too tiny it could be a put off 🙂
- We are putting in our trust on the quality and the date of manufacture when it comes to the products, hoping it will the best always.:)
I will be taking up the annual prepaid subscription for INR 3999, I know my money will be wisely spent on some great products. Not to forget the thrill factor and the new brands factor is really too good to miss. We all deserve the Vellvette box, I know we have heard it all around us, but you would know the joy when you get your own copy. For Rupees 399, I am more than impressed, I know my beauty is on auto-pilot 🙂
If you haven’t got yours, get it now! 🙂
