The Blisscovered Box is Here: January Edition!

Its here ! The first ever Indian Birch Box, in all its purple and lavender glory  complete with a cute little ribbon to secure its contents! Im talking about the Blisscovered Box, and in case you still dont know what it is – its basically a service where you pay 700Rs a month and then you get try sample sized products from high end brands every month.Without further ado..lets unwrap this shall we?

The Blisscovered Box itself is a rectangular lavender box with net ribbon. All the contents are secure under this deep purple crepe paper (is that what you call it?).

blisscovered box contents

Ta-da!! The contents.. Want to know whats in this box? Hold on a little while longer while we get to know the full sized products a bit better!

January Bliss Covered Box Contains Sample Sized Products of:

  • Lancome Genefique Youth Concentrate (Full size bottle of 60 ml costs 6500)
  • Diesel Loverdose Perfume (Full size bottle of 45 ml costs 4200)
  • Forest Essentials Honey and Vanilla Bath & Shower Oil (Full size bottle of 200 ml costs rs 975)
  • Natures Co Coffee Face Scrub, & Lemon peel Body Wash (Full sized versions cost 575 and 775 respectively)
  • Clarins Clear Softening Peelng Gentle Renewing Lotion (Rs 2000 for 125 ml)


What about the sample sizes? Well iv held these in my hand for you to get the idea of the sizes, and actual size of the samples will be given at the end of the post:

Lancome Genefique Youth Concentrate (5 ml) . This is actually a really really tiny sample, and i doubt i can use it more than 2-3 times

Forest Essential Bath & Shower Oil 50 ml. This is a good sized sample and will easily last me a month i think!

Natures Co Coffee Face Scrub (I was really excited to see this because this is my all time favourite scrub) as well as Lemon Peel Exfoliatint Body Wash. This aain is a tiny sample 5 ml each  so should last you a couple of days to a week.

The Diesel Perfume for 1.5 ml. Kind of handy to throw in your purse!  actually really like how it smells. When it hits your skin its too strong, but once it settles down its a pleasant aroma of vanilla and jasmine. Im REALLY liking it!

This really was the star of the show. This was a 30 ml bottle, and its a pretty good size. I wouldnt call it sample at all. Considering Clarins is not really cheap, im quite excited to try it out!

So in summary these are the sample sizes:

  • Clarins 30 ml
  • Forest Essentials 50 ml
  • Lancome 5 ml
  • Natures Co 5 ml
  • Loverdose perfume 1.5ml

My thoughts (even though one blisscovered box is not enough to review):

The positives

  • A pretty box that will be useful in storage or gifting
  • The Clarins and Forest Essential Samples were actually really nice sized and there is enough in there for you to try and see whether it works for yous skin
  • No Sachets ! Yeah!!!
  • They give a 300 rs discount card with the box which can be used to purchase full sized products of the samples you like. Yippeee!!!
  • I like how they wrote ” dear Mehak ” and not ” dear subscriber “
The not so positives
  • Having no Makeup Item was a slight bummer, but remember they have brands like MUFE on board which do ONLY makeup, so im sure future boxes will be having makeup
  • The 5 ml Lancome Sample was dissapointing because half of it contains air , and specially with Anti ageing , you cannot judge a product with a few uses . As corallista mentioned below howvere, since you need a tiny dab of the concentrate , this might actually last a week !


Verdict: I will be signing up for next 3 months just to see what kind of things the box delivers. Since MUFE has signed up, i would like to see some color cosmetics! So excited for that!!!!!

Should You Sign Up? It really depends on what your need is. For beauty bloggers, this makes sense because you end up spending much more than this on products anyway. If you are a skincare enthusiast, this again makes sense for you because a lot of the brands are skin care biased!  The rest really depends on what your monthly budget for beauty is. If 700 rs is not much for you to spend on  testing out products  and brands then go ahead! For me, its definitely worth it !

ritu January 19, 2012 at 4:29 pm

thats awesome mahek.
Congrats on being the first one to reveal what the january box has in store and more importantly ending the whole suspense regarding the size of these samples.


Keerthi January 19, 2012 at 4:38 pm

Loved the “should you sign up for it” part the best, not to mention the pictures :)


mehak January 19, 2012 at 5:28 pm

Hey k! Got yr email . Apologies for not replying I’m having a ton of work these days!


Keerthi January 19, 2012 at 6:04 pm

lol its been so long I actually had to go back to Sent messages!! :))
no problem :)


Nirah January 19, 2012 at 4:46 pm

Mine should come tomorrow and I can sleep peacefully because all boxes seem to have more or less the same stuff. :D
I think I will sign up again especially as my main interest is skin care and getting to try before buying full size makes so much sense.


corallista January 19, 2012 at 4:49 pm

I was quite happy with teh size of the products too though the absence of a makeup product was a bummer! Btw I’ve tried that Genefique sample before, you can easily get a week’s use out of it, u need a teeny tiny amount and its a runny liquid to it spread easily.


Sweet&Bitter January 19, 2012 at 5:19 pm

Its really nice….i was soooo badly waiting for someone to show what they send!

Really liked the FE items…one thing you think they really go by the profile you fill while register?? let me know……

Love ^_^


mehak January 19, 2012 at 5:30 pm

I think they might make some changes liKe if you are 17 they won’t give you a youth concentrate but by and large most products are similar . I think the personalisations will comentothepicture once they have a lot of products to send out n can pick n choose


Embellished January 19, 2012 at 5:46 pm

What about the other companies that had come up with similar boxes (the ones you mentioned earlier)?


Mehak January 20, 2012 at 5:09 am

Hey they are yet to launch actually!!


tanveer January 19, 2012 at 6:18 pm

I like the Clarins one they have sent you – it is a good quantity too!! I got a YSL prdt in its place but it is half the quantity – 15 ml.. Otherwise you & I have same prdts.. I liked it & I have already signed up for Feb *wicked grin* :D


Pooja@IBC January 19, 2012 at 6:24 pm

Wow this seems great,good to see no sachets!!Though I really wish they’d start sending makeup items too.


Bhumika January 19, 2012 at 6:54 pm

Karishma January 19, 2012 at 8:25 pm

Samyukta January 19, 2012 at 8:51 pm

hey congrats mehak on your box :) everyone seems to be loving the deisel perfume :) but having no make-up is a slight dampener :(

Shruti29 January 20, 2012 at 2:29 pm
