Sustainable Beauty: The Organic May Vellvette Box

By the third week of each month, I eagerly await the courier guy coz I know that’s the time when the Vellvette box arrives. I love the surprises and anticipation and really look forward to discovering new brands and products. This month, I was relaxing at my mom’s house when the Vellvette box was delivered so I couldn’t open it immediately. However, I did read what the other bloggers had received in their boxes so I knew what to expect.

I got back home an hour ago and the first thing I did was open my Vellvette box….I simply couldn’t wait any longer! Here’s what I got in my box….

My box contains pretty much the same things that almost everyone else has got.

The Brocato Curlinterrupted Smoothing and Hydrating Treatment Kit (Shampoo + Conditioner)
Surfactant-free, sulphate-free and paraben-free! Sounds super fab….can’t wait to try this out.
Flormar Delux Shine Gloss Lipstick (full size) in shade D31:

It is a beautiful, bright, bubble gum pink. A wonderful colour for summer. I just hope it looks good with my skin tone…if not I’ll find a way to make it work….haha 😉

Tvam Apricotand Walnut Scrub and Body Polisher:
A rich, creamy chemical-free body scrub, another product I look forward to trying out. The granuals too, seem fine and not very abrasive.
The Nature’s Company Lemon Peel Exfoliating Body Wash:
I am a bit disappointed with this one. An exfoliating body wash in a box that already has a body scrub….repetitive isn’t it, two body exfoliating products in the same box, both of them containing walnuts!!! Last month too, I had got a TNC Mint body wash. Wish they would have sent something else instead…
So, other than the Lemon Peel body wash, I’m quite happy with this month’s box and I like and appreciate this month’s Organic theme. The pot pourri in the box is such a lovely touch. Also, almost everyone received their boxes by the 24th or 25th so a big shout out to the Vellvette team for a fantastic job!
Looking forward to my June box now….wonder what the theme for that will be…….
