Hey everyone!

My Envy Box is a new beauty box service in India that debuted its first box this month! For someone who has been lamenting the lack of luxury products in Indian boxes, this is a god sent! Here are the contents of the October box

I loved the packaging – the products come wrapped in a tissue paper inside a pale orange box with the brand insignia over it. The box contains 5 cards containing info about each of the products inside the box. I received 5 products in my box – all skin care items. Since its a new service, they are still in the process of getting more brands/products on board so personalized boxes would be possible only after 2-3 months. What I like about the brand’s philosophy is that they are clear about My Envy Box being a luxury box even if that means being  more niche. The subscription is on Invite basis only currently. You can visit the website HERE to request an invite.

I like the mix of products and most brands are known to me except for Eminence Organics. The Thalgo and Clarins products are decently sized (15 ml and 20 ml respectively) and I hope they maintain that in the future boxes. If you’re looking for a luxury beauty sampling service, this is the best option available in India right now! While 2 of the samples are quite small, the other 3 are good enough for a few uses. I think its worth Rs 850.

The only thing that I felt could be improved is the product cards in the boxes. They should ideally contain info about the full sized products also (price + quantity). I’d also like to see customization but as the brand says, it’ll take some time to get enough brands on board to offer that.

  1. I received the same things as you – except my Thalgo sample was a collagen cream and instead of the eye exfoliator, I got a sachet of cream from Eminence. Let’s see how they do, going forward!

  2. Thankfully a box with actual luxe samples. I didn’t order this month’s box. Will see a couple of months to check what sort of makeup and fragrance samples they send out. But the box is really good too.
    Eminence is a high end skin care brand that till now, I’ve only seen retailed at some high end spas abroad. Waiting for the review of that and Thalgo silicium.
