Ok, so in case the pictures in the earlier post were not clear, my box contained the following (I have added the approx prices for the samples in brackets. These prices were calculated using the full size retail prices of these products)
1. Lancome Genefique Youth Activating Concentrate - 5 ml (This is of Rs. 541 in value). The 60 ml bottle of this costs Rs, 6500
2. Diesel Loverdose - 1.5 ml (Rs. 84). Full size 75 ml costs Rs. 4200.
3. Forest Essentials Honey & Vanilla Bath & Shower Oil (Rs. 244). Full size 200 ml costs Rs. 975
4. The Nature's Co.
a. Lemon Peel Exfoliating Body Wash - 10 ml (Rs. 31) Full size: Rs. 775 for 250 ml tube.
b. Coffee Face Scrub - 5 ml (Rs. 21). Full Size: Rs. 525 for 125 ml tube
5. YSL Top Secrets Natural Action Exfoliator (Rs. 450). Full size: 75ml for Rs. 2250.
So in all the box delivered is around worth Rs. 1371, which I think is a pretty good deal.
The box was done up very professionally and I liked the personalisation.
I haven't tried much from the box yet, save the Diesel Perfume & I quite love it. I think I might get the full size version of this.
In addition to all this, they have also sent a Rs. 300 /- voucher that can be redeemed against any of the above mentioned products. I liked that they have sent us some good quantities and not just 1 ml sachets.
Some people might argue that these are "free" samples that one would get in any case if you were to visit these counters & purchase a product. But then I'm not likely to saunter in into a Lancome or YSL any time soon and drop a bomb on a product just because I like the way it sounds and feels on the basis of a one time trial. This is a good way for me to use & really decide if the product works for me.
What I didn't like was the Nature's co Body wash. The quantity is too less and this 10 ml would barely last me two uses (I'm a lot of lather girl). I think I'm gonna unselect body products in my preferences form because I realize that the quantities are going to be less & this will be a bit of a waste.
And yes, there was no makeup in this box, despite me selecting that option. But I'm not really bummed about it. I was pretty okay getting a skincare box as well. Just as I'd be okay getting a box full of makeup too. I love both equally. :-)
I'm just very glad they didn't send me either the Omved lip balm or the FE Hair oil. I just bought Kiehl's lip balm two weeks ago & don't really want any more now & I can't use Hair oil in my relaxed hair.
I have signed up for the February box now. I was initially gonna sign up for the 3 months deal, but then I decided to wait & watch for a while.
So what do you feel about the box? Have you signed up for the Feb one?
