Review: Violet Box February 2014

February’s Violet Box arrived early in the month and came with a cute love heart shaped lollipop to celebrate Valentine’s Day.

Red Carpet Kolour $49.95/150ml
At first, I thought this was a self-tanning product but upon reading the description, it is not. It is an illuminating all over body providing coverage for cellulite, stretch marks, age spots etc…sounds like a foundation but for your body. It comes in 3 different shades – light, medium and dark. The sample came in two small satchets, and if I were to use this all over my body, it’d be a one use item…

Nuxe Cream Nirvanesque ~$14.99; $49.95/50ml
A smoothing, destressing and relaxing cream for expression lines. It has a slightly thin consistency, easily spreadable…kind of like slightly melted butter. Leaves skin feeling really smooth and soft.

Be a Bombshell ‘The One’ Stick $21/7.3g
Same premise as NARS The Multiple, colour is similar to NARS Orgasm – pink/peach with gold shimmer. Great for highlighting!

Be a Bombshell Lip Crayon in Some Beach $19/2.5g
Love, love lip crayons. This is a shimmery orange/coral. Glides on easily but has a slight frosty finish. Lasts about 4 hours before a need to reapply.

WotNot Natural Organic Facial Wipes $1.59; $7.95/25 wipes
Sample pack of 5 WotNot face wipes. I can always use face wipes, especially on lazy days when I cannot be bothered to do a full face makeup removal routine. Claims to remove waterproof mascara too. I haven’t had a chance to test these out yet so not sure about that claim haha

Aphelia Oasis Acne Solution $1.96; $49/50ml
I’ve been breaking out on my chin and forehead and I’m currently trialling this to see if it works. It has a strong herbal smell…kind of like the smell in those Chinese natural therapies shops..Rollerball sample…which I don’t think is quite hygenic?

Overall, this month’s box contained products that I would definitely use and included 3 brands that I haven’t heard of. There was also 2 full size products which is worth nearly double the subscription price.
