I received a total of 10 products in the March Eve box and 8 products were from a brand called Holy Lama Naturals. This is a brand that I am not familiar with but all the products were all natural and paraben free. So let’s see what all I received:

Bergamot Facial mist

Out of all the products I received in the Eve Box, the Bergamot facial mist is definitely my favorite. Facial mists are a necessities for summers as it keeps you super fresh and awaken. Sadly two of the products gave me bad allergic reactions and I had horrible rashes all over my face. These two culprits were the red sandal cream and the cleansing lotion.

Honestly I was not very impressed by the box and I feel there are much better boxes and bags available for the same price range. The claims that were made on the website about having collaborated with many international brands were really not what I saw in the box. Even the picture they show on the website shows many well known brands in them which was definitely not true. The products were average and didn’t do anything great to me. I was expecting a mix of makeup and skincare but the box was filled with only skincare products which was disappointing. Some of the previous month boxes had really good products and maybe I was just a bit unlucky to get these products in March Eve box. Since it’s comparitively a new brand in the market, I think we all should give them a chance and some time to make a name in the market.

But the fact that all the products were in good quantity and not those silly 1ml/gm testers made me a bit happy. Atleast you have enough product to test and decide if you like it or not.

Ratings: 3/5

I would definitely not say this is one of the best subscription boxes I’ve tried, but if you want to try out something different from the regular boxes in the market, you can go ahead and try subscribing to Eve box. Apart from this box you can checkout other boxes too on their website My Gift Box.  Here’s a 10% discount coupon code for all of you if you wish to subscribe to any of the boxes MGB06AM10.

PS: The box was sent by the brand but it’s been reviewed honestly without any bias
