My Envy Box February 2016: Happy Anniversary Forest Essentials

My Envy Box February 2016: Happy Anniversary Forest Essentials

This month's My Envy Box was a surprise and a pleasant one at that... First off, the box is really really pretty, the peacock, the colors and the water color effect, everything just looks so beautiful... So much so that I ended up clicking more pictures of the box than the products themselves :P *giggles*

So why is the Envy Box special this month? It is because they are celebrating 15 years of Forest Essentials bringing us luxurious Ayurveda in our lives :) So needless to say every product in the My Envy Box February 2016 edition is by the cult favourite Ayurveda brand Forest Essentials... Yayee!

The collection of samples/products that constituted My Envy Box is a delightful mix of bath to skincare products...

1. Forest Essentials Mashobra Honey and Vanilla Body Lotion

Price: INR 375/- for 50 ml

Like all Forest Essentials products, this body lotion smells rich and heavenly... It has a sweetish fragrance thanks to the Vanilla in it and it doesn't make you smell like a cake or a cookie :)
Texture wise it is rich, very moisturising and makes your skin feel all smooth and supple. It contains Kokum butter, burnt sugar and organic Beeswax that helps provide hydration naturally.

2. Forest Essentials Silkening Shower Wash - Madurai Jasmine & Mogra

Price: INR 295/- for 50 ml

This is one product that I am not really a fan of and that is because of its fragrance. It smells like Jasmine and Mogra that I dislike pretty intensely... However, as a product it is great, very refreshing and not drying...

3. Forest Essentials Lightening & Brightening Tejaswi Emulsion

Price: INR 2275/- for 50 gms.

To be honest, when I saw this product I had no idea what was... I mean what is an emulsion and how do you use it, right? Well apparently you just massage it on your face and neck and all the goodness of Ghee helps your skin with mositurisation and making it look more youthful.

4. Forest Essentials Luxury Sugar Soap - Bengal Tuberose

Price: INR 295 for 50 gms

I love handmade soaps... And I have my stocked up on soaps from FabIndia... But am  glad I got a chance to sample this soap... Luxurious does not even cover half of what it feels like in the shower... I like the fragrance as well cause it smells like spas smell, if you know what I mean...

5. Forest Essentials Hand Pounded Organic Fruit Scrub

Price: INR 1675/- for 50 gms

This is my favourite product from the box... I love my facial scrubs and I generally find all scrubs work for me. However, this Forest Essentials scrub is the epitome of Luxury... It is made out of Dates, Peaches, Almond Seeds, Apricot Oil and honey. Now with an ingredients list like that I would be crazy not to like it :)
Plus the scrub is really mind and very very refreshing...

My Envy Box is probably my favourite subscription box. They have the most glorious selection of products and I love their packaging...


  1. You got some amazing products <3
    I have too ordered one for myself, hope I get the same ones.

  2. I love the packaging of the box. The peacock images look beautiful.

  3. the product sent is good and nice packaging

  4. I am happy with this month's box. Really looking forward to trying out the products.

Makeup Class: Difference Between A Bronzer, A Highlighter, An Illuminator & A Brightener

Bronzer Vs Highlighter Vs Illuminator Vs Brightener 

Very often than not being a beauty blogger I come across the terms Bronzer, Highlighter, Brightener and Illuminator at least a dozen times a day. These terms are everywhere and people use them in their daily conversation with so much confidence that you'd be surprised at how wrong many of them are in their usages. Oh! Yes even I have made mistakes in the past about their connotations and today armed with research, experiments and well just plain analysis I have reached a consensus where I can now confidently put forth the results of my hard work...

Yes, today ladies and gentlemen, I shall be clearing all the confusion that prevails behind Bronzers, Highlighters, Illuminators and Brighteners!

REVIEW: Johnson's Baby Lotion on Adult Skin

I am itching to do some makeup EOTDs and LOTDs since a while now but with guests at home I am not getting any time... So for a while you guys are stuck with me doing reviews. Not that my reviews do not need much efforts but as compared to EOTDs and LOTDs, reviews are a little bit less demanding where time constraints are concerned... Don't you agree? :)

Today I shall be reviewing the Johnson's baby lotion and before you raise your eye brows and say to yourself "WTF" let me make it absolutely clear that I bought it when I was out of a moisturiser and needed one pronto! This was the only one available and so I just bought it. I figured if it was good for babies, how could it be bad for me? The truth? Read on ;)

Johnson's Baby Lotion is Clinically proven to be mild and mild it sure is. It has a soft and soothing fragrance, which I love. Once applied it gets absorbed really fast and does not leave a residual oiliness or greasiness. It would be perfect for normal ski…

10 Sexist Remarks We Women Tend To Ignore (But Shouldn't!)
This post has been long due...

Every now and then I come across a sexist remark, sometimes intentional, sometimes not and it makes want to write about it... But life happens, I push the remark to the back burner just the way we are conditioned to in order to prevent a confrontation or more likely to "free" our minds for more "important" things and hence the "writing" never happens...
