So am finally here with the unboxing and review of VanityCask February 2018. The theme of this month is The Valentine Edition, obviously 😊. February wouldn’t be complete without a Valentine Edition beauty subscription box. I was quite excited with the contents of the box as there were some new launches by some of my favorite brands. So without further due, let’s unbox and review VanityCask February 2018 – The Valentine Edition! You can check out unboxing of previous editions of Vanity Cask here.

Contents of VanityCask The Valentine Edition
The Nature’s Co Watermelon Body Butter:
This is a new launch by The Nature’s Co and they have first launched it for VanityCask subscribers. It is always exciting to receive an exclusive new launch in a beauty subscription box. I love watermelons and have never heard of a watermelon body butter before. So super excited about this! Will post complete review after using it.
Claims: This refreshing and super hydrating Watermelon Body Butter is rich in Vitamin C, A and full of free radicals which helps in reducing the ageing process along with its high level of fibers which provides complete moisturization and hydration.
Ingredients: Watermelon extract, Kokum butter, Grapeseed oil, Vegetable glycerine, Cream base
Price: Rs.1395 for 250ml (35ml deluxe sample in box)
MOND’SUB Sheet Masks:
– Pure Rejuvenating & Renewing Beauty Mask
– Extreme Firming & Lifting Beauty Facial Mask
I love using sheet masks and I think they are a good addition for a Valentine themed box. They are a quick pick-me up that offer instant hydration and brightness in a matter of 15-20 minutes. Plus they are super relaxing and cooling. There are two sheet masks in this box from Mond’sub. Both are different variants. I would like to try them and see how different they are from the Innisfree ones.
Claims: Pure Rejuvenating & Renewing Beauty Mask contains pure concentrated anti-ageing essence, providing your skin with abundant active ingredients. This highly effective anti-ageing facial mask is an intensive treatment which helps by lifting and nourishing skin.
Extreme Firming & Lifting Beauty Facial Mask contains special ingredient Collagen and Ceramide. It forms a strong moisturising and rejuvenating protective net which smoothen wrinkles and firms saggy skin.
Ingredients: PROPYLENE GLYCOL, PALMITOYL PENTAPEPTIDE-5, PRUNUS SPECIOSA FLOWER EXTRACT, TOCOPHEOL, HYALURONIC ACID, XANTHAN GUM, METHYLISOTHIAZOLINONE, PEG-40 HYDROGENATED CASTOR OIL.
Price: Rs.200 (Rs.100 each)
MCaffeine Neem Caffeine Glow Gel with Aloe Vera:
I had my eyes on this aloe vera gel ever since I saw reviews of MCaffeine online. Lucky me, I got it in this month’s VanityCask box. Neem + aloe vera is a wonderful combination. Add caffeine to it, and what more can you ask for? It is paraben-free as well. So excited to be trying this! Will post detailed review soon.
Claims: A unique Aloe Vera gel-based formula to help your skin glow naturally. Hydrates your skin naturally while nourishing it with nutrients. Neem has great antimicrobial properties and is a boon for the skin. Add to it Vitamin C and Vitamin E, your skin will thank you with a glow while Caffeine tones it.
Ingredients: Neem, Argan oil, Vitamin E, Cucumber, Caffeine, Glycerine, Aloe Vera
Price: Rs.449 for 50g (25ml deluxe sample in box)
Votre Assorted Skincare & Haircare Products:
You would be receiving any one Votre product this month. It would differ for each one. You might get one among the Rejuvenating Hair Oil, Gel Exfoliance, White Essence Brightening Creme Scrub or Multi Vitamin Day Moisturizer. I got the Votre Advanced Gel Exfoliant which I have used previously and liked it. So happy to receive it again. It has a great ingredients list. I got it previously in the Radiant in the Rain Edition.
Claims: This is a unique formula that brightens up lacklustre skin. This advance scrub is fortified with effective granules that gently exfoliate dead skin cells and blackheads while natural antioxidants help stimulate cell renewal, giving you soft and younger looking skin.
Key Ingredients: Pineapple, papaya, aloe vera, bamboo leaves extract, cactus flower extract, chamomile flower extract
Price: Rs.850 for 100g.
MYGLAMM Two Of Your Kind – Long Lasting Enamel Duo:
Am not much of a nail polish person. So will be giving it to someone else. But I have heard lot of good reviews about this brand. So I think this is a good addition to this month’s box.
Claims: Ultra-shiny, long wearing and sensational shades that team up together for a true colour or playful nail art. Gel effect polish glides on effortlessly and easy application. Highly pigmented to provide exceptional coverage and with a plumping agent to level out any imperfections on the nail.
– 20% off at Shae.co.in
– Rs.150 off on MyGlamm
– 50% discount on Mond’sub
– 15% discount on MCaffeine
– Rs.399 off on min order of Rs.1499 on The Nature’s Co
Overall, I think the contents of VanityCask February 2018 – The Valentine Edition – are nice and impressive. They have curated the best set of essential products keeping the Valentine’s Day in mind. And there are 4 full-sized products and 3 deluxe-sized. Plus there are lot of discount codes. However, I wish they had included more luxury brands instead of Mond’sub and MCaffeine which appears in every subscription box nowadays.
If you wish to sample some premium luxury brands every month delivered to your doorstep, just subscribe for VanityCask. And finally, I have a special promo code for all my readers. Use code ‘IBS10’ for a 10% discount on any subscription plan. Also they have an exciting offer currently – Buy a 3 month subscription for Rs.2399 and get a Limited Edition Thalgo Discovery Cracker Pack absolutely free. It contains a shower gel, body cream, hydra-marine serum and hydra-marine cream. When you subscribe for 6 months, you also get one more month free. And additionally you can get 10% off by using my promo code ‘IBS10’. Plus if you pay online through PayTM or Mobikwik, you can get additional Rs.75 off. Order here
P.S Product sent by the brand for consideration. But my opinions and reviews are honest as always.
