5 February 2015


My Violet Box for January 2015 arrived yesterday the 4th February, but sadly I didn’t have the time to go collect it from my PO Box, so I had to wait until today.

 I have been sent this box for PR consideration, so I really shouldn’t complain, but if I had been a paid subscriber I wouldn’t be too impressed that the January box arrives a week into the New Year.  I know that January can be a ‘short working month’ when you take the Xmas break, Australia Day etc into consideration, but really that is no excuse!! Anyway, that was just my thoughts, and I just hope that paying subscribers have also received their boxes by now, and that Violet Box manages to catch up so that the February boxes actually will be dispatched and received within the month of February too! Anyway, here are my thoughts on this month’s box;

What They Say:
Violet Box brands promises to every month include 4-6 premium beauty and lifestyle samples from well-known and trusted Australian beauty brands as well as exciting new International brands, one in particular is a revolutionary product currently trending in New York and has been featured in Vogue and on the Today Show!

RRP: You can subscribe to Violet Box for:
1 month – $22.95
3 months - $66.00
6 months - $130
12 months - $250

- Available from Violet Box

What I Say:
This month the Violet Box comes in a newly designed box, in the slide-out the sign, with black base, and a white lid with a pretty floral water-colour print. So this also means a new design compared to the previous matte black box with the magnetic closure. Personally I prefer the magnetic closing boxes as it makes it easier for use for other things such as small little knickknacks, but on the other hand, I have so many of those boxes by now that I honestly don’t need any more!!!

But this is what was in the January Violet Box…


Real Chemistry Luminous 3-Minute Peel – Sample Size, 5ml (RRP: $67/50ml)


This is apparently not a mask, you are supposed to cleanse the skin and leave it slightly damp and them spread the gel thinly over the face. Hereafter massage the gel into the skin with circular motions with damp hands until solids are forming under the finger tips and the mask is activating. Massage for a further 2-3 minutes before rinsing off. This sounds very interesting, so I cannot wait to put this to the test. I only with the sample had been a little bigger so there would have been a few more goes in it!

Lonvitalite 24K Active Gold Yulan Eye Mask – Sample, one mask (RRP: $25.95/5 masks)

Like most others I have tried and really love the Lonvitalite cloth face masks but never tried the eye maskes. Being pregnant, and having a toddler that wakes a few times during the night, does mean that I’ve got times I’m feeling a little drained, which shows on the growing bags under my eyes, so I cannot wait to put this to the test, as it promises to help increase the blood circulation, remove dark circles and bags under the eyes.

The Cosmetic Kitchen Raw Chocolate Clay Mask- Full Size (RRP: $24.95/50g)

This is a very interesting mask. It only contains Pink Australian Clay and Raw Cocoa Powder, and you need to mix it with mashed avocado and olive or jojoba oil, or alternatively you can just use water, mixing it into a paste and leaving on the skin for 2-5 minutes for a radiant glow. Unfortunately I already received one of those in another box in December so the novelty is not really there, and I have already tried it out. In saying that, I do like that it is so natural, so it certainly won’t go astray. And I can also tell you that it is a little messy, and as you only need to use about a teaspoon-full of the powder for one application, there is sufficient powder in the bag for heaps of applications, so I would have liked to see it in a re-sealable bag, or even better in a small jar.

Emite Make Up Precision Eye Pencil –Full Size (RRP: $24.95)


I have never heard of this brand before, so that excites me as it is always great to try out new brands. This eye pencil in the shade Spir is a cream shade, and it is quite pigmented and also very soft so it will be perfect to use on the waterline to make your eyes appear to be whiter and brighter. I am almost running out of my current one, so happy to see a new replacement so cannot wait to put it to the test.

Mellow Cosmetics Blush – Full Size (RRP: $14/5g)

Another brand I’ve never heard of before, YAY! This blush has a lovely pink colour and goes on quite sheer, although is still buildable.  It is silky soft and goes on matte. I love the colour, so I cannot wait to try this one out, so overall a great addition to the box.

So there you go, this month’s contents. Overall It comes with a nice variety of products from a face mask, eye mask, peel, blush and eyeliner. It contains three full sized products, as well as the peel sample and the eye mask sample (as it is otherwise sold in packs of 5). The full sized products alone have a value of $64, so in that respect it is certainly value for money, again just a shame that I’ve already receive the Chocolate Clay mask in another box previously so it doesn’t excite me. In saying that, I will make use of all the products, the blush is a shade I’d normally buy and use, I was in need of a nude eye liner, and the peel, eye mask and also the clay mask will also all be used over time.

  2. The blush looks lovely, I like the shade x

  3. I like it but I would have preferred another make up or skincare product than getting 2 masks and a peel in one box.
