MSM Box - My Style Mile Box - January Edition

Hey Guys.. I am sure that many of you are aware of the subscription boxes. I love them. Just because these boxes give you a chance to try and test the brands that you always dream of.Also, a lot of them can be personalized in that way,for the amount you pay, you get the best deals. The trend of subscription boxes was started recently in India and it took us by storm. We have seen a lot of boxes last year but in this 2015, I would like to introduce you a box that can make you smile,detox and make you feel good at the same time. I am talking about the MSM box - acronym for My Style Mile box.

Let's see what the brand has to say:
MSM Box— 'a lot in a little'
MyStyleMile.com began in 2012 as a beauty & fashion blog, with the aim of providing quality content to its readers, and of keeping them updated with the latest trends in India and abroad.
However the co-founder and chief editor, Bindu (a self-confessed beauty junkie herself!) soon realized that more was needed than just content. She realized how difficult and inefficient it was to sift through innumerable beauty brands in the market and to figure out which one to buy. Thus was born the idea of a curated beauty box service.  MSMbox.com was finally launched in Oct 2014.
Our motto - ‘a lot in a little’- sets us apart from any other beauty box currently in the market.
For starters, the box contains full size products along with carefully curated samples. Besides that, to really delight the consumer, we don’t just take care of your beauty and grooming needs. We go the extra mile and offer something more through our collaborations and associations with leading salons/spas, cafe’s and shopping.
Msmbox.com brings it all together, on an exciting online platform of rich content on trends, updates on the beauty world, and weekly blogs from our in-house team, and of course feedback and participation from our consumers.
Simply put, The MSM Box—a little box with the potential to revolutionize how women in urban India shop for beauty & fashion.

Price:
INR 495 for MSM Express Box
INR 995 for MSM Select Box
My Take :
As soon as I saw the box, I could relate it to my very favourite memebox just because it has the same pink colored box.
I was welcomed with a paper cover(a lot in a little was written all over), in which the contents are carefully placed. I was touched by the personal note mentioning my name. There was also a card which I assumed to be the content list where I could read about Natio,Organica and Innisfree. I thought the box included these products and I was super excited about trying Innisfree. However, I was disappointed

Coming to the contents...
1. Organic Green Leaf Tea and Tulsi Green Tea
I totally feel that it is an innovative idea to add tea in subscription box. But I feel that either they should increase the flavors or increase the number of tea bags. These are two little to form an opinion.

2. Soultree Turmeric & Indian Rose with Forest Honey Face Wash
This is the first time I get to try the brand Soultree. I was always known about this for it's organic beauty range. So I am happy about it. But on the downside, the facewash is meant for dry skin and I have an oily skin. I don't know if it will work for me or make my skin more oily. It is a travel pack.

3. Soultree Apricot Oil & Honey Moisturizer With Kokum Butter
Well this one really impressed me. I liked the smell and I am already using them as hand cream.The bottle is tiny. I think it is a travel pack of 30 ml. For the price of the box, the MSM guys could have given some full sized products.

4. Soultree Viola & Kokum Butter Lip Balm
Lip Balm is something which every girl loves  and I don't mind getting one in every box, every month.I have used the lipbalm last night and it was soothing. Wait for a more detailed review.

5. Maybelline Colorshow Nail Paint in Lavender Lies
This was a surprise to me. I was not expecting that they would add any makeup/beauty products but they did. I am happy about seeing a fresh shade of nail paint to welcome the summers.

I usually start off with the pros but for this one, I would like to tell you the downsides first.
Things I didn't like:
1. Inclusion of travel sized products. 2 out of 5 products can be used not more than a week if the tea bags can be considered as full sized products.
2. When there is a chance to customize, they didn't use that opportunity. I never wanted a product that is meant for dry skin.
3. Two tea bags is quite a tiny number,
4. Including 3 Products from the same brand. The idea of the subscription box is to give an opportunity to know and try different brands.
5. Misleading content card - I was super excited about Natio and Innisfree but all I could get is Soultree.
On the bright side,
1. I really liked the cute box.
2. Separate packaging for every product and personalized welcome note.
3. Products from the same brand lets you try different range of products that brand has.
My Rating:
3/5
Final Words:
Well, this is not really a worth the money box. I mean, look at the sizes of the prodcuts and the amount we get to pay. I am not sure if only my box has these products or everybody else has the same.May be I am wrong/unlucky with January box hope to see some good set of products included in coming months. I am sure if I was sent the Select Box or an Express Box but whatever the money has been spent, I feel there is still a better chance of including better products. Overall, you can still try to subscribe to this box but you may have to keep your expectations away. This box can surprise you!
**product was sent by the brand for consideration.However, my review is honest and unbiased.
