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 LotionPrice: 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 & MograPrice: 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 EmulsionPrice: 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 TuberosePrice: 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 ScrubPrice: 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...
