I received my Vellvette
Box Bag yesterday and here is what it looks like :
I am glad they sent a pouch/bag instead of a big cardboard box. These bags are useful for storing things and come in handy for travel.
Here is a peek inside :
This month’s theme for the Vellvette Box was “Ticket To Hollywood”
I have been seeing “Bonus” products in many other blogger’s posts about this month’s Vellvette Box but I got only 3 products!
However, the good part is that there are 2 full size products.
The first product is the Sally Hansen Lip Inflation Extreme Gloss in “Sheer Cherry”. I have been meaning to try this product and I was excited about this in my bag. I am glad it is full size.
Many other bloggers got a clear version but I was glad to receive a beautiful color.
And NO, it does not plump up my lips. It doesn’t even feel tingly enough to be a lip plumper.
The Soap & Glory Sexy Mother Pucker feels a lot tinglier than this. Read full review HERE
I would just call it a regular gloss. It smells like Cinnamon which is a little off putting because I don’t like the smell of Cinnamon. I do like the brush applicator though. I prefer brush applicators over doe foot applicators.
The next product is another full size product.
Figs & Rouge 100% Organic Aloe & Mint Balm. This is a repeat product. I saw it in the February issue.
I do like appreciate a full size balm. I am a lip balm hoarder and addict!
I do not like the smell of this. I can faintly smell mint and perhaps some Aloe. But, when I put it on my lips, I did feel the cooling sensation of mint and I could sense a whiff of mintyness.
I like that it is 100% Organic.
The last product is a disappointment! 😦 H2O Sea Results Deep Sleep Recovery Cream.
I have seen some other bloggers getting a much better sample of this product range. Maybe even a deluxe sized sample would’ve been alright.
I wish Vellvette paid more attention to the customer’s needs. I do not really need anti-aging right now! Plus any skincare takes atleast 3 weeks to start showing results. So, I don’t care about itty-bitty samples of skin care.
However, this claims “Overnight Treatment” so I guess this would last 2-3 uses. I will give it to my mother to try out!
Overall, here is what I got :
I will not say I am unhappy but I am not ecstatic either. I do like the gloss and the balm but that tiny sample of night cream didn’t do anything for me!
I’m hoping Vellvette steps up its game next month!
