Vellvette Box- February

I received my Vellevette box today. It is a cute box with a heart shaped fridge magnet. There is 1 make up product and 2 skin care products which is awesome. And... 2 of them are full size.



In the box:

  • Ofra Toner: 50 ml, MRP of full size 240 ml- Rs 1195. MRP of 50 ml- Rs 250

  • Figs and Rouge lips, face, body balm: 17 ml, MRP Rs 695

  • Purely Pure blush- Cheeky: 3.7 gm, Rs 1650

These are all products not available in India (haven't seen them in the market). Maybe they want to enter Indian market or maybe Vellvette box have included them for some variety and excitement. In case anyone wants to purchase them, they will be available on the website. Anyway, since I have never heard of them I did some research.

- Figs and Rouge balm: Aloe vera and mint balm. Figs and Rouge balm is quite famous online and has only good reviews. I am so glad a lip balm is part of the box. In the last 1 year my lips have become very dry and I need a lip balm at all times no matter the weather. I carry 2 lip balms in my purse, 1 is in the living room and another 1 in the bedroom. I cannot survive without one. I hate the feeling when lips are dry and start hurting. A new lip balm is most needed. This balm can also be used on dry areas of body, face, feet. Quite a multi tasker. According to reviews, the balm is available in many flavors- coconut, vanilla, pomegranate etc. Aloe Vera and Mint is not the best variant among these.... since it does not have a flavor or smell as good as others. In its own way it is good but if I had to buy one my first choice would be some other flavor.

It is packaged in a tin which looks classy. When I was in the boarding there were many kids from abroad. They would have such cute lip balms in tins which I would be using Vaseline. I love this. The product is white... when applied on the lips it has a tingling effect 'coz of mint. It makes the lips soft and smooth. But I need to keep re-applying it... like any other lip balm.


- Purely Pure blush: This is a brand available online. I could not find too much online. The reviews I came across (very few) were all positive. They maybe paid reviews. I don't mind. It is after all a blush in a very neutral shade- brownish peach matte. I will definitely use it. It is very similar to my Mac blush. I will try and compare this week.


- Ofra Toner: According to the Vellvette box, Eva Longoria, Denise Richards use Ofra cosmetics. Strange!!! I found least about this brand online and nothing about the toner. It is a South African brand.


Price I paid: Rs 399

Price of products in box: Rs 2585

Awesome. Next time I am going to pay for 3 months subscription.
