By now a lot of you must have received the much awaited Vellvette boxes and know that this month it comes wrapped in a shimmery gold ribbon. The black box is something that I look forward to every month very eagerly and this month was no difference. Adding to the expectations were the pictures that were all over FB and the blogosphere on what everyone got. Benefit, Clinique, Dior..they were all so tempting! I was really hoping to get the Benefit samples so when the box was delivered yesterday, I was really excited. The excitement kinda went of the window when I opened the box. Inside were the customary three product samples:
1. Nyassa Belgian Chocolate Scrub
2. OPI Nail Varnish - Red Lights Ahead Where
3. Dior Capture Totale One Essential Super Skin Boosting Serum
Individually, the products are not really bad but ever since I subscribed to the box, I've been getting skin serums every month! I may not be in my early twenties anymore but cmon Vellvette, not that old either that I can't be given makeup samples! It' great that you are giving very high-end stuff but I'd really like a break now from the serums!
The OPI varnish I really liked. Cute bottle and such a gorgeous color! I always love red so no issues with this one.
The Nyassa scrub is a part of all boxes this month and I'm still on the fence on whether I like it or not. The product looks great and I'm a sucker for anything that even remotely smells of chocolate. This one definitely smells great but the huge size of the sugar crystals is worrying me a bit though. Gotta try it to give an opinion.
In terms of happiness quotient, I'm on a 3 out of 5 right now. Would have been really happy if I had got Benefit samples or Dior foundation samples along with the OPI and the chocolate scrub. The serum kinda killed it for me :(
What about you? Happy with this month's box?
