Thanksgiving/November big haul!

Hey everyone!

I told you all last week that I’ll show you my November haul soon so here I am! I had not bought a single thing whole of September and October except few essentials for this weather and so I hauled quite a lot of stuff this month.

The sales here during thanksgiving are just huge! I’d heard about the sale season but never knew the extent of the discounts! And most brands start sales at the beginning of number itself!

Hey everyone!

I’m here with my favourite products of this week!

The winters here are very very harsh 😦 it went upto -10 degree Celsius last week. And it has already snowed 2-3 times in the last month. Eeeee I saw snowfall for the first time in my life. I was very excited but the excitement pretty much died down because of the cold 😛 LOL

Vellvette box review: October 2012.

I just received my October Vellvette box and well… I am quite quite happy with it. *touch wood*
For those who are still unaware of the Vellvette box read my earlier post on it here.
The introductory card that they send in the box, mentions that this time they have a special theme for the box “happiness” and I would say they have really managed to make me happy J
I don’t think I need to say much, the pictures can do all the talking. See for yourself what I got J

My first Vellvette box!!!!!

Oh My God !! I’m so excited while writing this J not just because it’s my first box, but because I’m quite satisfied with my goodies J
One of these was actually on my wishlist since some time !! seriously !!
For those who aren’t aware of Vellvette or rather beauty boxes in general, this is a monthly subscription or you can also take it for 3/6/12 months. In this subscription you pay INR399 per month and you get a box with 3 sample size products of high end brands. You are required to fill a preference form for products and then your box is sent to you and one of the really good (or bad? ) aspects is that your products are a complete surprise for you until you open the box. J

I had placed my order on sept 29 and have received it today J via aramex.

So here are the pics… Enjoy J

 

The packaging is super girly. A black sturdy box with a pink ribbon.

On opening I found a letter addressed to me mentioning the products inside. When I first opened the box I did not read the letter because I wanted to see the products first before reading about them. Lol. Such an impatient girl I am.
Then they have also given me discount coupons if I wish to buy the full size products of these samples from their website J also, details about each product are enclosed.
 

L’Occitane shea butter shampoo

 
Firstly I would like to tell you that l’occitane is one brand, I’ve been dreaming to try. But I’ve always found it too expensive so now I can  J
The body shop strawberry shower gel
 
 
 
And this is something I seriously had on wish list… TBS strawberry shower gel. I had loved the fragrance last time I visited TBS.
Clinique 7 day scrub cream.

Jesus del pozo Halloween kiss 

This was a bonus product. The box is supposed to have 3 samples otherwise. This has a lovely fragrance 🙂

 
I would also like to mention that their customer service is excellent. I sent a message to on their website’s contact form ONLY because I was getting impatient waiting just after 2 days of placing my order and they promptly replied to me telling that the box on its way J
The only problem I have with my box is the lack of any makeup product but then I guess I should have mentioned that in my preferences. I had focused a lot on hair care since right now my hair are in a really bad condition 😦
I don’t know if they have an option to change preferences, but I really hope they do have it because I would love to get some makeup stuff too next time J
But overall I’m loving my box and would definitely try it again J
I’ll review these products soon J

You can order your box HERE.
Also, if anyone has any doubts if the box is actually worth it, I would like to tell them yes it’s definitely worth it!
