My first Velvette Box - February Valentine special

After reading numerous posts about the Velvette box all over the blogger world, I finally succumbed to the temptation and ordered myself one as a Valentine gift to myself. For those of you who are not very clued on to what the Velvette box is ( just like I was two months a ago), this is what the service does:

Velvette box much like the Birchbox company abroad delivers 3 beauty product samples every month for a price of INR 399 to your doorstep. The 3 product samples that are chosen depend on your preferences and your skin type. Thus, it is like a surprise package that comes to your house where you don't know the contents but it is definitely exciting as you know you are going to receive some lovely products from very well known companies that you may have never tried earlier, may have not even seen those products.

So this is what my February Velvette Box looked like:

The box was a little broken though

 This is what my February Velvette Box contained:

  1. Pureply Pro (full size product and not a sample size)
  2. OFRA Vitamin C Day Cream
  3. Fig and Rouge - Aloe & Mint Balm (full size product and not a sample size)

Although, my Velvette box was hardly a surprise as everyone got the same products this time. Except the OFRA product varied, some got under eye cream gels instead of the day cream. But still I loved it. and here's why:

  • Complete value for money as 2 of my 3 samples were actual full sized products. Thus in INR 399 I got products worth more INR 2500
  •  Its got a mix of makeup and skincare
  • Brands that are internationally very well known but not so famous here, nor available thus, get to try new products
  • The lip balm is 100% natural and organic. I am always on the lookout for good lip balms as Ive tried almost everything and nothing really works on my dry lips except for the C O Bigelow one (check here) that I tried lately
So will I subscribe for the Velvette box again?

Yes definitely although, not immediately as I have ordered lots of products from Sephora USA (my dad is going there) and I am really excited about trying them out. So maybe after a couple of months. 

Shall review these products individually soon.


  1. Now it's official!! Everyone has got the same products this time... although all of it is awesome... :D

  2. Seriously, though they've given the same products this month, this is the best box so far coz the products are fab.

  3. This box looks good! It's great that you get a full size lip balm!
