Here comes July a month that tells about half of a year is gone and other half is waiting for us to be explored. To me this month brings a time of self analysis, and also helps me to understand what I have achieved so far and what are the things that require to be achieved.
So as part of my ongoing self analysis let me share with you something which is close to my heart. As till now you all must be aware that I am glued to social media and online portals since 2010. You can also say I used to haunt these portals deliberately earlier to know what they are up to or would there be any deal available that could tempt me , Or any other information that could help me groom myself.
In this desire of learning and temptress I came across terminology “Subscription Boxes/ Bags “. Which at first seemed a rocket science and confused me as well, because earlier subscription as a word was only used in context of magazines or New papers. But later on I get to know that this is one of the finest market strategy in which a person by paying just a nominal amount can test few samples of products that varies from beauty to lifestyle . And if found suitable then in future can go ahead for full size products depending on their experience. Even after understating this concept I kept myself refrained from indulging or experiencing one for self , Not because I didn’t have the money but reason was simple. I was a Non Makeup person at that time :P ..You can say That till my Graduation I didn’t even apply a Kohl so using makeup was just out of the scope :P for me . But still being blessed with Learning Soul I kept a track of these subscriptions services.
However I must tell you at the very beginning this concept caught the market so strongly that it saw a flood of brands entering this segment, But with time only few can make their mark and rest of the other just vanished in thin air . Amongst these Subscription providers there was one Brand who had uniqueness in it , Instead of being totally makeup oriented this brand maintained a balanced box where in both beauty and skin care range was infused , and I believe that is the reason this brand today is considered to be a style statement . This Brand caught up with the masses and its boxes are today in my opinion are one of the finest and treasured one’s .
With this I would like to take an Opportunity to introduce you guys with The brand I just Spoke about “My Envy Box “. I still remember the days when seeing their picture on Social media used to make me envy the people who owned these Boxes. I used to feel like an isolated child standing outside a home, waiting to be welcomed.
They say Envy is wanting what someone else has and resenting them for having. This is what I tend to feel myself on seeing those beautifully curated and whole heatedly crafted boxes of treasures, And today finally after all these years I am holding it myself.
So holding “My Envy Box” is my this year’s accomplishment , a dream that I always kept close to my heart . And always wished to turn it into a reality. I am living this moment of joy with excitement thanks to my long time admiration “My Envy Box”.

And today holding My own Envy box to me is like Achieving Grade A+ in Board Exam.
So here I present you My experience with Envy Box .
I placed my order around 5th of July, and chose payment mode as “COD”. Around 15th of July I received an email from team Envy revealing July Month’s sampler products, seeing that email made me fell from chair, realizing that my box is on my way soon with those revealed goodies in it. Next Day on 16th, My day started normally, that same routine woke up early in the morning, caught my cab for office, spent my day with work and returned home as usual. But On arrival there was a huge surprise awaiting for me,”My Envy Box” Yayyyyyy !!! Seeing it finally on the table made me forget all the tiredness and like a baby made me run towards it to hold it.
Holding this beauty gave me a sense of completeness sprinkled with the joy of long admired accomplishment. So to continue the spirit I opened my package with excitement and felt loved from the brand after seeing the packaging and presentation.
My beautiful Envy Box came to me in white Poly bag (Refer Pic ) .On tearing it I saw a white colored Carton box that perfectly held my Envy box due to exact size configuration of Envy Box. On opening this white carton I finally got to see a vibrant Lilac colored Box sneaking out and innocently wishing to be opened.
After seeing and holding my Beautiful Envy box , I kept on admiring this box’s deign . This box has luxuriously engraved “My Envy Box” Logo on top of it , that to me represents brand’s Luxury which is infused with their heart and soul in it. Personally What I liked about the box was its strong build up and magnet enabled flip that keeps this box close and makes it a ideal to store our treasured trinkets. Personally I am thinking of storing my childhood memories in the form of pictures in it as according to me special memories requires special space and there could be no more special then My pretty Envy Box .
On Opening this pretty bauble smile on face got bigger as I received 5 lovely products accompanied by two descriptive cards. One card contained Love from Team Envy in the form of Discount code of 15% that could be availed in current month itself on full size purchase. Isn’t great fellas ? You can buy a full size product at 15% Discount …Name me one luxury brand who does that..I Have an Answer Team Envy :D
The other informative card contained description of enclosed products that personally I liked. As in general too you don’t welcome a stranger at your home, To talk or to welcome a new person , you first need a proper introduction isn’t . Hence I am happy that team Envy takes this initiative and introduce us to the world of products that too with proper care and attention in the form of their descriptive cards.
After going through these cards I saw Envy Products beautifully settled and aligned within those black paper strips which were complementing Box’s beauty. So Now let me take you through the products that I received in My Envy Box.
I received 5 Products naming:-

Its mild gesture is just perfect .On very first application I was taken by surprise as I felt my skin becoming softer and smooth. I could feel my skin‘s breathing and as a result after a time i could see the difference by seeing my skin fully nourished rather than looking dull and dry . And cherry on the cake was getting this Half of full sized product. I Mean full size would cost Rs.1105/- for 100Gm where as in My envy Box we received 50Gm of it for just Rs .550/- Isn’t great??

I received two samples of this whose quantity was 5 ml each. This is a Italy based Brand and this product contains ingredients like White Grape Extract . Hyaluronic Acid , Vitamin A, E and F , shea Butter , However infused with certain parabens .Seems a decent product to try out in case you are looking for something enriched with vitamins and goodness of natural extracts .
Roberto Cavalli Paradiso ( Rs.3,300/- for 30Ml)
I just loved Roberto Cavalli Paradiso‘s woody floral Fragrance. This products claims to bring out sophisticated, sensual and sparkling fragrance .And To me it does what it claims, On Its very first inhale I could feel the soothing properties which were easing my senses and made me loose self within its mesmerizing fragrance till its last trace. I am defiantly going to buy its full size in a short while, and would defiantly suggest you to try one for yourself too.
