UNBOXING AND REVIEW: My Envy Box April 2016


Its been a few days since I've gotten the April My Envy Box curated by none other than the bride to be, Bipasha Basu from The Label Life. This month I received 3 full-sized and 2 sample size products which is absolutely a steal!

This month's box is a pretty pink one with "My Envy Box" written on it in gold and around it there's a beautiful circle of small and large keys, which is the logo for The Label Life. The box is very pretty and simple, the kind of style that I like.













The products I got in the box were:

  • Full-Sized Products

   1. BBlunt Spotlight Hair Polish for Instant Shine
The product retails for ₹ 535/- and provides protection and reinforcement against pollutants and adverse Indian weather. 

   2. Fran Wilson Mood Matcher Lipstick
I got this product in the shade Red and it retails for ₹ 590/-. The lipstick stays on your lips for 12 hours, but the most exciting thing about it is that it changes its colour to match your complexion and mood!

  3. O3+ Milk Scrub
The product retails for ₹ 385/- and is formulated with real milk, helps to moisturise and exfoliate the skin while removing blackheads and white-heads

  • Sample-sized Products

  1. Roberto Cavalli - Paradiso Azzurro
The full-sized product retails for ₹ 4900/- for 50ml and this scent is just so irresistible.

  2. Rene Furterer Paris - Leave in Cream
The full-sized product retails for ₹2500-3000/- and helps with dry and damaged hair.



I honestly loved this month's My Envy Box, I have used almost all the products in the box, but my favourites are the O3+ Scrub which leaves the skin feeling so soft, smooth and polished  and the Bblunt hair spray which suits my hair and gives them a beautiful shine.

My Envy Box: March 2016

So I finally did it! After reading so many blogs and great reviews about the My Envy Box, I  decided to give it a try under a special Holi discount offer in March. 
The box arrived within a week of ordering, which is always great and I obviously fell in love with it!!

The box itself is very beautiful and of an extremely good quality. I love the design, its so beautiful and colourful! I definitely will be keeping this box for putting some jewellery/make up in it. What I also like is the fact that each month they have a different theme and so, the boxes have different designs.

The box is available in 4 different subscription plans:
  • One Month Plan for 850/-
  • 3-Month Plan for 2250/-
  • 6-Month Plan for 4350/-
  • 12-Month Plan for 8500/-
This is a high-end 'luxury' box and it contains deluxe samples and full-sized products from well-established and high end brands.

I received the following products:
  • Bblunt Climate Control Anti-Frizz Leave-in Cream
    This is a full-sized product worth 450/-
    It is basically a cream to enhance the natural movement of hair and to smoothen them and crtol the frizz.
  • BIODERMA SPF50+ 
    This is a 5ml sample and the full-sized product is worth 1485/-
    This limits hyper pigmentation and protects scars also guaranteeing optimum UVA/UVB protection from the sun.
  • Hedonista Fleur Frozen IttarThis is a full-sized product worth 1045/-
    It is basically a frozen perfume made with fractionated coconut oil, beewax, jasmine oil, avocado oil and olive oil.
  • AVA Body Moisturizer with SPF 30This is a 200 ml sample and the full-sized product is worth 650/-
    This is made out of pure white essential oils of jasmine, mogra and vanilla and helps in improving the elasticity of the skin.
  • LOCCITANE volumizing Shampoo and Conditioner
    6ml sachets of both have been provided and they are priced at 1460/- each.
    These are all natural hair care products
 I have to say that the brands are very high-end and the products are of a very good quality. Even the packaging of the samples is so good in quality!
Since this was my first experience with the "My Envy Box" I have to make a pro and con list to share with you!

PROS:
    • The box itself is very high quality
    • Great packing 
    • Amazing products 
    • You can fill out your "beauty profile" to help the company understand you better and send you products that you might actually need
    • Value for money 
CONS:
    • Price 
All in all my experience with the My envy box has been amazing, so much so that i have ordered the April box as well.

February Fitness Update

Since we started with 2016, I thought I should take you along my fitness journey. One of my resolutions this year is to lose weight and get fitter, but I lack consistency. I decided to update you guys montly about my struggles with keeping myself fit and healthy.

Current weight 

Goal Weight

Activities
This was the month in which I got active. I go cycling (almost) 5 days a week. My goal for the month was 20km which I met! Yay! 
I normally go cycling in the morning after walking my dog, Albi. I go around 7:00 and come back around 8:00 or 8:30 because I need to rush to college. 
My first cycling tip was not big, it was just 7 km (from my house to New Lake, Sector 42) but I really enjoyed the ride!

My next 'big' trip was to the Japanese Garden with my boyfriend and it was amazing!

The Japanese Garden is so beautiful


My other trips were to the Sukhna Lake which was a HUGE achievement for me. When I first started learning how to drive, Sukhna was a place where I would come, and now with cycling, all the physical effort proves to be fruitful.

My bike!


On my last (and biggest) trip to Sukhna I shattered the glass of my iPhone 6 Plus. It hurt so much, the replacement costs a LOT! I would just like to say that you need to buy insurance for your phone if you have butter fingers, like myself. Especially if its an expensive phone. JUST DO IT. 

Speaking of just do it, I got my first ever pair of Nike shoes, in PINK! I  am so in love. It's a big thing to get shoes for my size, I have such tiny feet..

Okay, you have to agree, they are bae.


Food
Okay, so I haven't been very good in this department, BUT BUT BUT I have been trying. Yes, I have had a lot of pizzas, burgers, mo-mos, pasta, etc.etc. but I have tried to eat healthy, too. 
My current favourite is a strawberry smoothie, it's just so yummy!

I will stop drinking coffee for this.


I have also tried to eat as much as fruit as I can.

They are amazing!


But all of my "good" is erased by this one yummy thing available at Elante food court. Thinking about it makes me drool...

Chicken Sizzler. Un-doing everything.
I feel that February was a good month fitness-wise. I hope March is better and I make PROGRESS!
