Vellvette Bag Review – June 2013.

DSC031242

Hello everyone 🙂

I got my Vellvette box bag quite late this time too, I just received it this morning.

Firstly, the delay in receiving it curbed my excitement a lot.

Plus, I had very high expectations from the box bag this time as I loved what others had got. But what I actually got didn’t really meet my expectations.

Vellvette box review – March 2013.

DSC017322

Hello everyone 🙂

I know I’ve not been regular since some time, I was just lacking inspiration to post anything, if that makes any sense!

So, I’m back with the March Vellvette Box. I know I know, it’s April now but I just got my box today!

I had seen many other March boxes that fellow bloggers’ had got, and it was the first time that I wasn’t excited at all to receive mine. I say this because the stuff everyone was getting didn’t appeal to me at all! When Vellvette started their sampling program, they had such an amazing selection of products with L’occitane, Crabtree & Evelyn, FE, Clinique, BBW, VS, Clarins etc. The brands they’ve got this time(Remy Laure, Meiji) are so unknown to me that they don’t look like luxury products even if they may be! Plus the similarity of products in all boxes is another thing I dislike. At first it seemed okay when they had similar products in the Feb box as they wanted to keep up with the theme, but now it’s irritating. There are other subscriptions too getting popular nowadays like Enchantess which have improved their quality so much but I never subscribed to them as I used to think that Vellvette is the best and it’s quality would never degrade but now I’m thinking maybe I just said that too soon! I still have April’s box before I subscribe again so I have another chance for Vellvette to woo me all over again! Don’t break my trust guys, I love you a lot!!!

Another thing I am really disappointed with is how late they deliver the boxes now! I clearly remember in October I had got the box on 20th, so why is the delivery getting so late since the past few months! In January they had some confusion with my box n it was delivered to me on 2nd Feb and now I got a call from them on 1st April saying that I will get my box this week and I have to pay 1199… helloo!! I’ve already paid for 3 months in Feb! Again some confusion!

I’ve been one of their first customers and have been subscribing since September(their first month) without fail. I’ve also got 5 of my friends subscribe to Vellvette. I wrote quite a bashing mail to the Vellvette team on 30th March when I still hadn’t received my box, and I got a reply from Kaushik from the Vellvette team saying that they have been facing a lot of problems with the Delhi orders and are now starting an office in Delhi and from April, all problems would be resolved! They also mentioned that I’m one of their earliest customers which I was assuming they didn’t acknowledge but now I’m happy and really hope they get back to their former glory super soon 🙂

DSC01086

So here is this month’s Vellvette box, I received just an hour back!

You must have seen the contents in other blogs, the contents are mostly same this time for all boxes. I wish Vellvette doesn’t make the stuff same in all boxes, it should be like it used to be in the initial boxes but despite this, this month’s box is lovely and all the products are simply awesome 🙂

My experience:

I have received this body scrub in my January Vellvette box. I mentioned in my post here that I really wanted this scrub when I saw so many people getting this scrub. The main reasons for wanting this scrub were – firstly I have never tried a chocolate scented bath product! And secondly, I wanted the cute tin box it came in 😛

The scrub retails for Rs.950/- for 200gm which I think is quite high a price for a scrub. But maybe it’s worth the price? Let’s find out!
