It is time of month again where I am waiting for My Envy Box to arrive and excited to unbox it to see what’s new in store. :).I received my Envy Box today and here’s a quick post of what all I received.

This is what I got in My Envy Box for July.I was waiting for My Envy Box team to send across some hair care products sample and tadaa.. here they are sending so many samples for hair care products.

My Envy Box for July

1. Kama Ayurveda Bringadi Hair Treatment: Kama is a 100% natural brand and this product claims to prevent hair loss and make it healthier and remove loose dandruff flakes.I have used Kama conditioner before and did nothing much for my hairs,so not very excited to receive Kama products,but  I know there are many girls who like Kama Products and hence I still want to try these.I got three samples of this 🙂kama hair treatment

2. L’occitane En Provence Aromachologie Control Styling Prep-Cream– Now this is  a luxury brand and this time I have got a sample for hair care from this brand.This is a leave in cream that claims to control dry and hard to manage hair making it nourished.It has jojoba oil and guar gum and is silicon free.I got two samples of it.loccitane leave in cream

3. Kama Ayurveda Mridul Soap Free Face Cleanser:This is a soap free face wash and that’s what is good about it. I used it just now and it did a decent job cleansing my face and did not make it dry also.Kama Face Cleanser

4. Avene Very High Protection Cream SPF50+: I am using some of the products from Avene and really liking them and have heard great reviews about this sunscreen and hence excited to use this.This sunscreen has SPF 50+ and is created for sensitive skin.Avene Sunscreen

5. H2O Plus Body Lotion-Sea Moss: I am using hand cream (Reviewed Here) and body wash from H2O+ and liking their products and hence I am hoping this will be good too.Only thing I don’t like much from the Sea Moss range is the fragrance that it has.

Pretty Hands using H20+ Hand Cream

I am a total fan of hand creams these days as I love how it makes my hand soft, moist and also makes my worries go away.My major hand problem is that if there is a small amount of skin coming out I keep on picking them and the situation worsens. I have a bad habit of picking them especially when I am tensed or nervous. So here is H20 hand cream to my rescue. As soon as I apply them I can feel my skin relaxing.I discovered hand cream by H20 through My Envy Box and I am really liking it these days.

h20 hand cream

Before I go on about Hand Creams, would like to share a sweet memory from my school days ..

One of my guy classmate shared with me that he shook hands with a girl and all he could think was “Wow her hands are so soft  🙂 ..Like Malai” and then asked me that how do girls get such soft hands.. 😉 😀

Well some of us are blessed with good skin and for others there are hand creams :)..

What is a Hand Cream and Why a Hand Cream you ask..

They say hands age faster than face(Really !!!!) ,so if u want those lovely hands then you should pay attention to your hands.Most of us apply tons of products to our face but neglect our hands. So after few years you see some ladies with a pretty face but not so pretty hands.Also, I personally feel that  if you want to save  on your visits to parlor for manicure then you should start using hand creams.It really helps to get those nice lovely hands.Just regular use of hand creams and a nice nail paint are good enough to give you those pretty hands.Also hand creams helps to improve the health of your cuticles.

My Current Favorite: H20+ Hand Cream Other Product Used: Marks and Spencer

h20 hand cream1

How To Use

Take small amount and rub over your nails and cuticles and hands. You can use it anytime, after bath, before going to sleep, before going out. It is up to your preference.

Price: RS 1180 for 180 ML

Why the love

  • Really, Really Moisturizing. A small amount is enough for many hours.
  • Hands feel really soft after I apply it
  • Has a nice subtle fragrance  and I love nice smelling hands.
  • Helps control those skin coming out near nails
  • I felt that my nails are also strong after its use
  • Has improve my cuticles health, I don’t get dead cuticles much now
  • Comes in a handy bottle which is quite easy to carry.

Downsides

  • Quite Pricey
  • Not easily available across stores. In Bangalore I have seen there counters mostly in Shoppers Stop.

Though this H20 hand cream is pricey, I like the results. I have also used hand cream from Marks and Spencer(will do a review soon) which is quite decent for its price(around 300 Rs) so I do a mix and match with these hand creams, based on how my hands are behaving :). Also this mix and match helps me in effectively managing my budget 🙂

Lets Share : Are you also a fan of Hand Creams ? Which ones are your favorite?

Unboxing My June Envy Box

You come home tired and receive your Envy Box..A box full of surprises..What else could be a lovely way to forget all that tiredness and feel excited to see what all is inside that box.. Every month’s beginning I have started to look  forward for my box.

This month’s box had decent sized samples as compared to last month’s but still somehow I am not so happy about it. Here’s what I got in my envy box and here’s why I am not so happy with this month’s box.

June Envy Box

Innisfree Nailpaint: 

Innisfree is a eco friendly brand from Korea and this month Envy Box has a full sized product, I am not so excited about it as I already have similar shades and I usually don’t prefer to spend a lot on nail paints, so nothing exciting for me about this product. May be if it was a OPI nail paint or so, I would have liked it more, as have heard great reviews about OPI nail paints, but due to its price not tried it yet..

Nina Ricci-La Tentation

I like the range of the perfumes from Nina Ricci but somehow this one didn’t appeal that much too me. This has fruity/citrus tones which are not so strong and once it settles it leaves a summery fresh fragrance. But I am not a fan of fruity smell, so nothing exciting for me about this perfume.

Skin Yoga Sea Salt Foot Scrub:

The scrub looks good. It actually has dry coconut particles and feels so natural.It claims to remove dead cells from your feet. I am not sure about that but it is quite moisturizing and feels as if you have applied coconut oil.

Kronokare Body Lotion:

This is not a luxury brand and is newly launched in India. Though the brand claims to be paraben and chemicals free, but not so excited about this range. The body lotion does a decent job though and has a lavender fragrance.

Thalgo Freshness Exfoliator:

Hmm.. again not sure about this exfoliater. On one or two usage it felt fine and felt fresh, but not very sure why I would buy a big size of this product.

So for me this months envy box was just fine. I would like to get some products related to hair next time. Also I feel its time, Envy box starts customizing their boxes for each user.

Let’s Share: How do you feel girls? Happy about this month’s Envy Box? Have you tried any of these products before? How do you feel about them?

Pants Obsession

I am totally obsessed about Pants these days . With the summers on, I just want to live in something that is comfy and feels light  and these loose printed pants are the answer to that for me.

Whether its going to a late night dinner, random  ice cream eating plan , vegetable or grocery shopping or meeting friends I am sporting these everywhere.I just change the top accordingly. As of now, I can live in them for the whole day :).They are so comfy that I don’t even feel like touching my Jeans these days.Jeans are such a torture in Summers.

I am finding them so comfortable that when I had to travel recently, I went out especially and bought myself another pair of pants 😀
