When I asked Vellvette’s co-founder, Vineeta Singh, to give a sneak peak into the November bag products, she said we would find out in just 2-3 days (read full post
). And just 2 days later, I have my Vellvette bag in my hand! I know you are really eager to know what I got…..take a look……
In case you’ve been living under a rock, let me just tell you that Vellvette is an Indian monthly beauty subscription box (now bag) that sends out at least three makeup/skincare/haircare products for just Rs. 499 a month. They do give bonus products too from time to time.
This month’s bag is a dark pink with black polka dots. The finish and quality of the November Vellvette bag is much better
than the September anniversary bag
I had just stepped out of the elevator of my building to go and pick up my son when I saw the courier guy standing with a brown box with Vellvette written all over it. I asked him the recipients name coz it had to be mine and it was! Then the interminable wait as I stood waiting for son’s school bus, Vellvette packet in hand, unable to open it and find out the contents! It felt quite light too so I was really eager to know what was in it. When I finally got back home, I rushed to get the scissors and cut open the packaging….
November Vellevette Bag’s Info Card
MUA Lip Boom ( Full Size)
Ohkayyy, MUA isn’t really a high-end brand but I have read lots of reviews about the Lip Boom, all of them raving about this product. It is a lipstick on one end and a gloss on the other. And that band of red that you can see at the base? It’s a detachable lipstick pot! Cute isn’t it?
Kama Ayurveda Lavender Patchouli Body Moisturiser
A very generous 50ml sample! I have used Kama Ayurveda’s Kumkumadi face oil and Bringadi hair oil earlier and I like this brand and it’s products. This body lotion smells lovely and is perfectly sized for travelling. I’m very glad I got this in my November Vellvette bag. Shall stash it for my Christmas holiday trip.
Thalgo Hyaluronic Mask
If you’re a regular reader of my blog, you will know that I had experienced Thalgo products at a spa in Thailand years ago. Recently, I also reviewed their collagen eye cream (review here
). This mask claims to be instant wrinkle filling and while I don’t have wrinkles (touchwood), I do have a few fine lines. I know nothing short of Botox or surgery would get rid of them totally (and personally, I am not going to try out either of those), but I would like to see if it makes my skin softer and more plumped up.
Mary Kay Extra Emollient Night Cream (Bonus)
There’s a slight discrepancy here; the card says Mary Kay pencils but I’ve got a tube of night cream which is for very dry skin. Will email Vellvette and ask about this, but in any case, when I’m travelling in December, I can probably try this out.
So, overall, I really liked what I got in my November bag. One makeup product, one for face, one for body and the bonus one….quite a good mix, what say? And definitely better than the My Envy box which charges Rs. 850 for samples that you could easily get at the store!
