Hope you are having a great week! It’s been a long time since I posted, ‘coz I was facing some technical issues in my site.

Anyway, the site is back up now and hopefully I can get back to blogging regularly 😀 So today am here with the unboxing and review of VanityCask May 2018. The theme for this month is Summer Romance Edition and there are 3 full sized products and 3 deluxe samples. Continue reading to know the brands and products that are featured this month.

About VanityCask Summer Romance Edition
Come summer time and most of India is taken over by hot weather, and the first to feel the heat is our skin. Team VanityCask and our in-house specialists have spent the last few months researching the best way to fight the heat, while giving you a taste of a premium luxury vacation. We worked towards creating a box that would cater to every problem that your skin and hair face during the summer. The idea was to fulfill your needs while giving you the exotic experience you deserve. Th result is our VanityCask Summer Romance Edition, the ultimate guide to summer luxury!
The packaging comes in the usual black box with a pretty pink pouch inside. It surely looks luxurious. There is also a booklet which lists all the products details along with detailed instructions of how to use them. This month, the booklet came in a bright yellow colored theme indicating summers and fun.
Contents of VanityCask Summer Romance Edition
Votre Day Moisturising Gel SPF-25:
This is the star product in this month’s box. A gel-based moisturizer is the absolute need for summers. And if it has sun protection too, it is an additional advantage. I think Votre Day Moisturising Gel SPF-25 is an apt pick for this month. Votre products are generally expensive and I wouldn’t be trying them if not for VanityCask. But they do have an impressive ingredients list and work really well, especially for my sensitive skin. So looking forward to try this Votre gel moisturizer. It contains blackberry, etc which sound really interesting.
Claims: This product is a blend of gel moisturizer with sun-protection that protects your skin from harmful UV rays. This moisturising gel gets easily absorbed into the skin, controls oil and gives a non-greasy glow. It keeps you hydrated all throughout the day. It protects your sensitive skin from the harmful UV rays with SPF 25. It revitalises your skin, adds a natural glow and is dermatologist tested.
Ingredients: Licorice, Blackberry, OMC, Tea Tree, Neem, Base q.s.
Price: Rs.520 for 30g (Full size).
Sova Shea Butter & Kumari Body Lotion:
Another product from Sova! Yay! Am quite happy to try these deluxe travel-sized samples from the luxury brand, Sova. Kumari plant is nothing but aloe vera. Shea butter and aloe vera is a very nice combination which will moisturize as well as hydrate your skin. Also this contains other not-so-common ingredients like macadamia nut oil and beetroot extract. So I think this is an interesting try in this month’s box. Will post a short review on Insta after using this.
Claims: Woven with the wisdom of the traditional Kumari plant to replenish your skin and rich Shea Butter to make it divinely silky, this lust-worthy lotion with soya extract, macadamia nut, and jojoba oil leaves your skin illuminated and youthful for all the years to come.
Ingredients: Jojoba Oil, Grape Seed Oil, Vitamin E, Macadamia Nut Oil, Shea Butter, Soya Extract, Beetroot Extract
Price: Rs.850 for 240ml (30ml deluxe sample in the box).
MCaffeine Liquid Funk Caffeine Shower Gel:
Am not too fond of this brand MCaffeine. The box contains a 50ml deluxe sample of shower gel from this brand. 50Ml is a really good size and am happy with the quantity. I carried this during a recent travel to my sister’s place in Hyderabad and started using it. But it made my skin too dry and itchy. Looking at the ingredients list, I spotted the culprits – SLS and SLES 😕. But if you like strongly fragranced shower gels, then maybe you will like this one. The scent is unisex and so can be used by both men and women.
Claims: Get acquainted with the whirlwind of energy with this Caffeine infused shower gel. MCaffeine Shower gel keeps you refreshed, energized and charged. Caffeine infused in the gel, removes the dead cells and gives your skin a healthy glow. It cleanses the skin while its bubbles and intoxicating minty scent will leave you feeling refreshed and revived.
Key Ingredients: Caffeine, Taurine and Vitamin E
Price: Rs.359 for 150ml (50ml deluxe sample in the box).
Mom’s Therapy Herbal Hair Pack:
I received couple of products from this brand in previous month’s boxes – Mom’s Therapy Hair Oil and Body Oil. I actually liked them as they were affordable and all natural as well. This month we have received a hair pack made from 9 herbs. Hoping it will do something for my dull, dry and lifeless hair. It contains cooling ingredients for the scalp like amla, neem and fenugreek which is perfect for summers.
Claims: Mom’s Therapy hair pack with the power of 9 herbs, nourishes the hair and enhances hair growth. It is an effective remedy for common hair problems like dandruff, hair fall and premature graying. It revitalizes the hair, making it healthy and lustrous.
Ingredients: Amla, Neem, Reetha, Fenugreek seeds and Rose petals
Price: Rs.269 for 100g (40g deluxe sample in box).
Mond’sub Sheet Masks:
Sheet masks are a true life savior in summers. They help to refresh, cool and soothe skin in the hot climate. There are 2 variants of Mond’sub sheet masks in this month’s box. Am excited about the cherry mask as it claims to contain 50 times more vitamin C than tomatoes. And of course, cherries are my favorite fruit as well 😀
Cherry Brightening Facial Mask:
Claims: Cherry containing abundant vitamin C which is 50 times tomato’s, this product can soften and beautify skin. Together with several essences and moisturizing ingredients, this formulation can penetrate into the skin, moisturize, smoothen and brighten skin.
Anti-Wrinkle and Moisturizing Facial Mask:
Claims: It balances skin nutrients and replenishes skin, nourishing & hydrating skin and increasing skin’s vigor. Formulated with several plant extracted essences, this formula is specially designed for dry skin, mature or prematurely aging skin.
Overall, VanityCask May 2018 – Summer Romance Edition – contains a unique combination of products. Votre Gel, Sova and Mom’s Therapy Hair Pack are appearing for the first time in this month’s subscription box. So I think this is a good set of products to try this month.
