I remember saying May was my favorite MEB ever! Scratch that! The June Box is by far the best and most exciting- one full sized product, two deluxe sized samples and finally a cosmetic product!
The June Box came in a lovely lilac color which lifted my spirits instantly. And when I opened it, I just couldn’t stop smiling ear to ear. It really is my favorite box ever!
Here’s a quick review of the products:
1. KRONOKARE Provencal Lavender Body Lotion
Kronokare is a Delhi based brand that specializes in “green” and “natural” products. All their products are SLS and Paraben free and are not tested on animals. They use pure essential oils, are very fragrant and soft on the skin. They are the more affordable version of Forest Essentials :). The sample size is 35 ml (good for a number of applications), non sticky and has the goodness of lavender. It leaves the skin feeling silky, smooth and fragrant.
2. NINA RICCI-La Tentation De Nina EDT
Nina Ricci needs no introduction. The french perfume major has to its credit some of the most famous fragrances including my favorite L’Air Du Temps. La Tentation De Nina is fresh, floral and fruity. Perfect for day wear, it has all the right notes-citrus, vanilla, white musk, sandalwood and a number of fruits-raspberries, grapefruits and almonds. The sample size is 1.5 ml, good for 2 wears. Did I say I absolutely adore it!
3. THALGO-Freshness Exfoliator
Thalgo is a 40 year old french skincare brand and probably the first one ever to use marine salts and sea algae extracts in its treatments. The Freshness Exfoliator has a strong scent(may be too strong for some) and comes in a creamy texture. It will gently exfoliate leaving your skin soft and luminous. Use it for your CTM routine once a week. The sample size is 5 ml, good for 2 uses.
4. SKINYOGA-Coconut Sea Salt Foot Scrub
I had received the SKINYOGA Coffee Scrub in the April edition and it was absolutely delightful! It’s an Indian brand which uses natural ingredients for skincare. Just like the last sample, their Coconut Sea Salt Foot Scrub is 100% natural and smells heavenly. It combines gentle coconut flakes and pure virgin coconut oil. Use it on your feet for instant glow and nourishment. The sample is 50g and will easily last you a couple of months (10 applications).
5. INNIFREE Eco Nail Color
INNISFREE is a South Korean Cosmetics brand that believes in naturalism. Their claim to fame is their green and eco-friendly products. They launched their first store in India last year. MEB had sent out their Tea Tree Serum in the May Edition.
The sample this time is a full sized nail color in lovely peach. I am normally a sucker for reds and pinks but this color is such a welcome distraction, I am not complaining. Check out the MEB site for the available range of colors. It’s glossy, dries fast and long lasting-don’t forget to use a top coat for better results!
So, like I said, this was my favorite MEB ever! Hope they continue to delight us in the coming months. Do write in to me for specific brand queries. Also, in case you need help in choosing the right beauty box for you, do read the tips here.
