Hello Gorgeous Ladies,
There is a new beauty subscription box in the town. Let’s welcome and say hi to MSM or My Style Mile. I love subscription boxes of all kind because you have to pay a little but you get to try a lot. You get the freedom to try samples before you decide to make an actual purchase. Those unexpected gift-of-the-month subscriptions are sure to please any food lover, beauty addict or makeup maven.
There are a bunch of international boxes out there with some of them shipping to India. In India we have five subscription based boxes right now – My Envy Box, Fab Bag, Sugar Box India, MSM Box and Wish Box by The Nature’s Co. MSM Subscription waslaunched in October, 2014. MSM is a new player in the beauty subscription box market in India.
MyStyleMile.com started as a beauty and fashion blog in 2012. The co-founder and chief editor, Bindu realized how difficult and inefficient it was to sift through innumerable beauty brands in the market and to figure out which one to buy and thus the idea of MSM Box was born. They have now ventured into the beauty subscription box market with the launch of MSM Box. MSMbox.com is a discovery e-commerce platform that offers consumers the opportunity to buy, try and enjoy beauty brands in the market.
The tag line of MSM is “A lot in a little”.
MSM offers two curated boxes: MSM Express and MSM Select box. For a nominal subscription of either Rs. 495/- for the MSM Express Box or Rs. 995/- for the MSM Select Box, every month, you get a surprise goodie box containing beauty, grooming and lifestyle products from new and established beauty brands!
Types of Subscriptions:
- Monthly subscription
- Three month subscription
- Six month subscription
- Annual subscription
The box contains full size products along with carefully curated samples. MSM offers something extra through their collaborations and associations with leading salons/spas, cafes and shopping stores. You get complimentary vouchers in addition to the beauty products every month. I was not sent the voucher because I am staying in Palghat, Kerala and we don’t have any stores here. Those vouchers cannot be redeemed in my place. My friends got L’Opera Café and Looks Salon voucher worth Rs.500 which can be redeemed within 60 days. I saw that a few have received vouchers like Four Fountains Spa. How awesome is that?
Detox is the theme for January 2015 MSM Box. The January MSM Select Box contains Natio anti-oxidant hand and nail cream. They have mostly upcoming brands in Express box, but in the select box they have products from established and luxury brands!
I love the sturdy pink and gray cardboard box packaging. They also include personalized card and a product information card. The packaging proves that MSM really cares for their customers. The box is ideal for storing items and can be reused.
Inside My January 2015 MSM Express Box:
Soultree Apricot Oil & Honey with Kokum Butter moisturiser – 30 ml – Organic and made from natural ayurvedic herbs, Soultree products are free from any kind of synthetic preservatives, colours or fragrances. I have already tried Soultree many a times and I like this brand. I think this moisturiser will suit my sensitive skin well as it won’t irritate my skin. It is a great product for winter. This is non-greasy and hydrating.

Soultree Turmeric & Indian rose with Forest Honey face wash – 30 ml – This is a gel based face wash and I love the refreshing scent. It is enriched with organic turmeric, Indian rose, aloe-vera and forest honey. I think this will easily last for 10+ uses.
|Soultree Turmeric and Indian Rose with Forest Honey Face Wash Price in India: Rs.295 for 120 ml|
Soultree Viola & Kokum Butter Lip Balm – The lip balm contains organic ghee, kokum butter and organic oils that make it perfect for the winters. This is a full sized product and I am happy to receive it. It goes into my handbag.
|Soultree Viola & Kokum Butter Lip Balm Price in India: Rs.195 for 6 g|
1x tea bag – Organica India Ginger and Green tea – This tea is mild and it re-energizes us and helps wash away exhaustion. Being a tea lover, I like this and having a sip of this tea is the best way to drive away chillness during winter. Love the ginger flavour.
Innisfree Capsule Recipe Pack – My favourite Korean brand, Innisfree. I am so happy to receive this. These are much raved. It can be used three times. This unique face pack is enriched with natural organic ingredients and it helps to reduce skin irritation.
|Innisfree Capsule Recipe Pack Price in India: Rs.100 for 10ml|
Maybelline Color Show Nail Polish in Lavender Lies – This is priced at Rs 75/- and this is one of the shades that I don’t have in my collection.

- The samples are decently sized and enable you to make a decision after trial
- The box contains products from popular brands like Maybelline, Innisfree, Soultree and many more.
- The products sent this month are organic and safe
- I love the indulge vouchers which gives you a break from the hectic routine
- Two subscription box options are available – Express Box and Select Box
- Products information card is given
- They deliver the boxes within 1st week of the month. Delivery is quick and takes 2 to 4 days mostly
- The boxes are ideal for gifting
- I love that surprise element
- Each box has a theme – This month it is Detox and this box was winter focused
- Variety of products
- At least one full sized product in each box
- Value of this box comes to around Rs 515 plus shipping charges. The box is priced at Rs 495 with free shipping and obviously the price doesn’t hurt. The products are also worth.
MSM Box – Misses:
- No makeup product this month – It has variety but instead of three Soultree products, it would have been better if I got some other brands. Anyways, it won’t be the same very month.
- Boxes cannot be personalized
I love MSM Box and Innisfree capsule is my favorite product from this month’s box. I recommend you all to try 1 month’s subscription and later on you can go for 3 or 6 month or even one year plan. I am excitedly looking forward to try the MSM Select Box.
Thank You Dhanasree for sending me this box <3
