Review: Violet Box January 2015

If you’ve noticed, there was no review for December’s Violet Box cos I think it went for a walkabout during the holiday rush.

Appropriately themed “New year, new you” for the first box of 2015, the items included in January’s box:

Real Chemistry Luminous 3-Minute Peel $6.70/5ml ($67/50ml)
This is a protein peel promising “instantly smoother,  brighter and softer skin” . I find that you have to work quickly with these face peels as they tend to react pretty much instantly with the dead skin. I’m looking forward to trying this gel peeling mask!

Lonvitalite 24K Active Gold Yulan Eye Mask $5.19 ($25.95/5 pack)
Whenever my eyes feel swollen, I always love placing an eye mask on them. This one by Lonvitalite looks luxe and will be good to reduce the swelling.

The Cosmetic Kitchen Raw Chocolate Clay Mask $24.95/50g

The Cosmetic Kitchen Raw Chocolate Clay Mask $24.95/50g

The Cosmetic Kitchen Raw Chocolate Clay Mask $24.95/50g

This one looks interesting! Raw chocolate clay mask. As you all know by now, my favourite face masks are clay masks. This one by the Cosmetic Kitchen can be used as is – just add water and apply. Or there is a little receipt on the packet to make a radiant choc avocado mask. How interesting!

Emite Make Up Precision Eye Pencil $24.95
Received this in the shade Spir, an off-white shade which would be good for lining either the inner corner or bottom waterline to brighten up your eyes. The formula feels soft and didn’t require me to drag it onto my skin.

Mellow Cosmetic Blush $14
A simple name of “Pink”, this is a sheer but buildable pink blush with yellow undertones. It doesn’t have any shimmer or glitter but isn’t quite matte in finish. Something I would change would be the packaging. It was difficult enough to open the cardboard packaging and remove the blush but it was even harder to flip the lid!

I liked that for a “new year, new you” box, they included a variety of masks. Janauary’s Violet Box included 3 full sized products, 2 samples and 4 brands I hadn’t heard of.
