Today it is all about the May Violet Box, 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:
As per usual this month the Violet Box comes in the typical slide-out box, with the grey and white swirly design that has been previously used. These were the goodies inside the box…

Mistura Kabuki Brush – Full Size - RRP $14.95

This was a sneak peek for the May box. I’ve never heard of the brand Mistura before, and I always love coming across new brands. This is a small kabuki brush without a handle, made with very soft synthetic bristles. It is a lovely brush and I can definitely see myself getting a lot of use from it. But I do find it a little awkward to use, and generally prefer brushes with handles, and struggle holding this one in the palm of my hand as suggested, but find it easier simply holding it with my fingers. It also makes for a perfect brush to pop into your makeup bag on the go because of the small size.

Soak Skin Booster Body Lotion – Sample, 25ml (RRP $29.95/500ml)


Another brand new to me, YAY! This body lotion has been infused with chia seeds promising to deliver super nutrients to your body. I know chia seeds is one of those hyped about foods at the moment, but I’m yet to jump on the wagon. Still, if the moisturiser can deliver some much needed moisture to my skin, then I’m all for it. I can’t wait to put it to the test.

Hair & Me Rejuvenation Treatment – Full Size (RRP: $19.95)

And another new brand, YAY again! This is a prewash hair treatment that you use in your hair for 45 minutes, and then wash your hair, twice, and then condition as normal. It is made from organic ingredients and promises to rejuvenate and restore hair. Sounds perfect for my hair, only finding the time to do this, with a newborn and a 2 year old, sadly means that I mostly rely on quick hair treatments.

Urban Skincare Co. Backstreet Collection Infuse Body Balm –Sample 35ml (RRP $12.95)


This body balm smells absolutely amazing of lemon, and if you’re a regular reader, you’d know I’ve got a soft spot for zesty citrus scents, so I absolutely love this body balm. In saying that, I have previously tried this body balm as it has been included in a previous beauty box, so as such there is no novelty factor with this body balm for me, but then again, as I really love it, and have been thinking about purchasing a full sized bottle, essentially I don’t mind!

Meraki Body Body Scrub – Sample – (RRP: $17)

And another new brand, triple YAY. Unfortunately the card didn’t say much about this product, but a quick search and I believe to have found that this is in fact a strawberry and coconut body scrub that not only soft and fresh, but as it is made with oils to help with the appearance of cellulite, stretch marks, spider veins, age spots, acne, scars, eczema, psoriasis and also nourishes the skin beautifully. I’m yet to open it, but it does sound lovely, here’s just hoping that the strawberry scent will be the dominant one as I’m not particularly keen on coconut scented products.

Overall, I’m pretty happy with this month’s box, and no items will go unused, and I am pretty impressed too with the introduction of a whole three new brands that are new to me. And with two full sized products, and three fairly large samples, the box also performs in terms of value. Having said that, the variety of the products in the box is not as great as previous boxes, containing two body creams and no makeup items (other than the brush!) or facial skincare products. Personally I don’t mind, but in the end of the day, guess that an alternative products instead of one of the body lotions would have been more ideal.
