Vellvette Box March 2013 Edition
After Jomol’s and Neha’s review on the Vellvette Box, I thought I’d also give it a try. 😀 I got my box around 28th but after that since I was travelling, I couldn’t post my review any early.
It is a little goody box of skin care and makeup samples. You have to fill up the questionnaire and based on that a sample box is created for you. This way you can try out some samples of the expensive products and if you like them , you can buy full size products. But if you are experimental like me, you can also keep repurchasing this little black box of surprise every month. 😀
These are the pricing options for the Vellvette Box :
- Rs. 399 for a month’s Vellvette box.
- Rs. 1099 to get Vellvette box for 3 months.
- Rs. 2099 to get Vellvette box for 6 months.
- Rs. 3999 to get Vellvette box for 12 months.
I filled up my questionnaire and as per that I expected some anti ageing products, products related to dry skin and some color cosmetics.
These are the goodies in my box.
7 packets of Amino Collagen skin glow. It was featured on Oprah Winfrey show. It says Japanese women’s secret to health and beauty. This one is the what I am excited about the most. Will tell you how I find these.
I opened the box and it was fragrant was lovely vanilla smell. I am a sucker for handmade soaps. Looking forward to use this one. It has vanilla and dry fruits… eat at your own risk. 😛
There are loooots of samples of my fav Clarins Double Serum. You may read my review HERE
Then there is a teeny meeny sample of Mary Kay. I would have preferred a sample of a more high end brand. Not excited about this one but the brush looks nice.
And then there is a crayon style lipstick by Anne Andre. It is a very very creamy and smooth lipstick. The shade is universally flattering. You may read a review about this HERE
Overall, I think except mascara I liked the box overall. The little colorful ribbon perked me up. I would however want to see more high end brands in the box. It’s the high end brands that people want to give a try before making decision to buy the full products. But for 400 bucks, and 5 products I think it is a pretty awesome deal. Plus, every month there is an excitement of getting new surprise products. If you like some samples of the products, there is a probability of them getting added in your regular skin care or makeup routine.
This is my first box of this kind and I am kinda geeing like a small kid who had got a candy in her hand. 😛
You may indulge in Vellvette boxes HERE. Their April edition is already out. So hurryyy!!! 🙂 HERE is the whole list of brands that you may expect in your Vellvette box.

vellvette boxes r so much fun na 😀
didnt loveee my march box but didnt hate it either !
i got the same nyassa soap(which is really nice), nyx lip gloss(very pretty shade) , opi nail paint mini , remy laure samples n the meiji collagen these last two im not too keen on trying !
that nyasa soap, i cant stop smelling it. 😛 I am actually quite excited about trying meji samples. 🙂 your box sounds quite fun!! :))
I agree wid Poorava….. me too..neither love my march box nor hate it completely,….. I got the same nyassa soap in vanilla which i have alrdy finishd using…..smells yummmmyyyy…temptng enuf 2 bite thru….lolz… N i also got an OPI nail paint in red(am nt very fond of nail paints.. 🙁 ….. and then i got Remy Laure’s Skin cream samples which really made my skin oily…no good either….. and also got d 7 day sample of the amino collagen protein….. waitng for ur review on that on Rati…. 🙂
I loved my Vellvette box, it was awesome 🙂
My March Box was sucha dud! After the feb box, i had more expectations from this one!
Nevertheless, I got those meiji samples, the food supplement has fish ingredient in this, So i won’t be trying this one.. The remaining were one-time samples of lip liners from mary kay and Lush ka dream cream.
To add more disappointment, they delivered 2 boxes of same samples!:(
I only wish it gets better next month..
oh sad you had such an experience.. 🙁 good luck for the next one.:))
Completely agree wid u Sushma….. it was a complete dud for me too….now i am in a dilemma whether or not to order the next one…. 🙁
I too got the same samples… i didnt quite like it.. Im a vegetarian and the meiji samples are complete waste for me 🙁
I’ve orderd my April month’s box…waiting waiting eagerly.. 🙂
fingers crossed. 🙂
Vanilla and dry fruits.. sound yummy no.. eat at your own risk…hihihi 😛 😛
Rati of all the things I loved that colorful ribbon the most.. 😛
I am subscribing for the April box now.. you’ve tempted me 😀 😀
Oh and I am missing the great clicks on Shutter Snapper.. do tell Sanjeev to showcase more of his awesome clicks.. 🙂
yeah he is quite busy these days. guess he’d post it once he finds time. :)) thanks. :))
okiee looking forward to it.. and your OOTD post too 🙂
I am skeptical about the ingredients of Amino Collagen skin glow. Is it vegetarian??
No Neha….It is not veggie…. It is mentioned on d pack dat Vegetarians mite want 2 avoid it as it contains Fish protien (some thng related to /extracted from fish)
shagufta, I am sorry but there is no such thing written anywhere either on the catalogue or on the sachet. However it is not a vegetarian product since the red sign is on the packet that suggests that it is not a vegetarian product.
the ingredients are collagen peptide 71%, maltodextrin,sodium ascorbate (vit c), glucosamine hcl, L arginine, gum arabic.
argenine is the product which may be extracted from either of these : dairy products (e.g., cottage cheese, ricotta, milk, yogurt, whey protein drinks), beef, pork (e.g., bacon, ham), gelatin , poultry (e.g. chicken and turkey light meat), wild game (e.g. pheasant, quail), seafood (e.g., halibut, lobster, salmon, shrimp, snails, tuna)
so if you are a complete veg, you may want to avoid it. hope it helps 🙂
I remember havng read it abt d fish ingredient in d catalouge thng….. Even Sushma has mentioned d same thng above…..
i am veg and recd this in my vellvette box, guess i skip having it 🙁 thanks guys
I love this box…..this looks like an awesome goody box….I want to lay my hands on everything, starting with the lipstick to the amino collagen drink 🙂
woohoo wat lovely pics
and loved the products, your reveiw gives it a whole new meaning 🙂
awww neha. thanks. :))
My march vellvette box was a let down 🙁 I would have loved atleast the nyx gloss that some ppl got (thought its not high end) or the nyassa vanilla soap atleast would have been better than one time samples of mary kay 🙁 and food suppliments..
the april box has lush products.. guess they are making improvements with every passing month. 🙂 good luck for the next month!
Hopefully 🙂 thx…
Rati, the box is so nice.. and yeah the surprise element is so much fun na.. can’t hardly wait for my next box to arrive.. 🙂 I just loved the crayon lipstick.. i agree with the geeing part like a kid who got a candy.. 😛 he he he
good luck for your box esha. i am excited already to read about your box. 😛
Sure..I’d share it with you all.. 🙂 :*
Rati I think u have tempted me and I’m going to order mine now 🙂 Just worried about the non-veg stuff…is it something u gotta eat or put on skin?
Yours is a very good one!! liked it 🙂
i got Feb box, i am ok with the products, neither good nor bad.. he he this is what my mind says :).. one serum.. lip balm and a blush.. serum didnt suit me 🙁 lip balm and blush are really good 🙂
btw.. IMBB is blocked in my office 😥 😥
Oh god!! what will i do.. IMBB is the biggest relaxation in between my hectic work 🙁
Whatttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttt……this is so bad…..bad office people :((
Finally!!!!!!!!!!! I was waiting for this post for so long….this is so fun!! 🙂
i wanted to ask your opinion on something..i am also a vegetarian..so can we make a face mask out of this collagen samples? this meji one?
The idea sounds good Mily 🙂
I love the box more than the ingredients, of course products inside are icing on the cake..i have used a box once, I was happy with Clinique n forest essentials products..!
Wow so many skincare n make-up products for 400 bucks… lol i know they r d trial ones but still.. sounds super interesting … 😉 you must b soo happieeeeee 🙂 🙂
i had ordered d march box early in march before the pre-paid subscription offer came up.i got a purely cosmetics pro strawberry blush,amino collagen packs n lush dream cream
can i still subscribe for pre-paid subscription to get extra samples in my next box.
any idea anyine????
no the offer was expired khushi
I wish i was in India :(…Nice review dear 😀
