It’s that time of the month again.. Violet Box time! 😀 It’s Violet Box’s first birthday and a few ‘bigger surprises’ were in store for us this month. What did I think of it all? Check out my thoughts below 🙂
Cosmetic Pouch by Caddy – RRP: $26.00. This was indeed a nice inclusion in this month’s ‘box’. It doesn’t look or feel cheap. The print is a little ‘meh’ for me, but maybe that’s because I just recently bought a set of super cute Kikki K cosmetic pouches. The print and colours almost look a little ‘masculine’ to me. My boyfriend saw the Caddy pouch and loved it – so he will be one happy recipient of this cosmetic pouch 🙂
Appelles Shampoo (RRP: $18.95 for 150ml) and Conditioner (RRP: $18.95 for 150ml) Blackseed – 60ml samples. This duo contains a decent amount of product, perfect to take away with you on holidays or on a weekend away. The shampoo is meant to be lightweight and suitable for daily use, while the conditioner is enriched with Tamanu nut oil to repair and protect damaged hair. I find that natural and organic hair products are difficult to get right as they either don’t cleanse hair to well or don’t moisturise enough for my liking, so this duo will be interesting to try!
Bioderma Sebium Pore Refiner – RRP: $30.95 (for 30ml) – 15ml sample. Everybody knows Bioderma and has probably received many of their products to trial in such sample boxes. I don’t mind receiving another Bioderma sample, as at least you know you are getting a good quality product and their sample sizes aren’t el cheapo. I’m not that into ‘mattifying’ moisturisers, so I think my bf will be happy to trial this one 🙂
Strange Beautiful Nail Polish – RRP: $22.00. The packaging ‘conjoining’ these two nail polishes is a little strange lol but I don’t mind these colours otherwise. I wouldn’t necessarily wear both of these colours at the same time, but separately, I think they are wearable shades. Hopefully they’re long lasting and opaque in colour!
Chella Brow Pencil in Brown – RRP: $21.50. I loved the Chella highlighter pencil included in last months box, so I don’t mind seeing another product of theirs in this months box. I’m not into brow products and even if I was, this mid-toned brown colour wouldn’t be for me. It does look high quality however and I like that these products are made in Germany (just for something different :P). I will have to pass this one onto a friend 🙂
GHD Straight & Tame Cream – RRP: 24.00 (125ml). Perhaps the ‘star’ product in this months box, a smoothing styling cream that is meant to also impart moisture into the hair. I think this is a product that most people would use and like. It isn’t innovative as such, a styling cream is a styling cream, but as long as it’s not heavy or sticky, it should be a ‘practical’ product which gets a lot of use!
This month’s box contained 4 full sized products and 3 decent sized samples. That’s a pretty good deal if you ask me (for only $22.95)! I don’t think it’s the best box ever as I will be passing some of these goodies onto others, but it’s a nice selection of products 🙂
