Violet Box April 2014: Villainess Dulces en Fuego Whipped!

I was first exposed to Villainess in the January 2014 Violet Box with a sample of their soap. This month, Violet Box included Villainess’ Whipped! Body Creme which is a thick and heavy body moisturiser, perfect for Winter. The ingredients of this creme are – bitter chocolate, vanilla, citrus, black pepper and nutmeg. To me, it has a slight nutty scent which isn’t too overwhelming upon smell but have not yet applied it to my body so I’m unsure if the scent lingers.

Bioderma Crealine H2O ~$1.60 ($19.95/100ml, $29.95/250ml, $39.95/500ml)
I based the sample value on the 500ml size…
Such a cute little bottle and one which I was happy to see. Bioderma’s H2O micellar solutions have raced to the top of my HG list and the small size makes it great for overnight stays or short overnight trips.
If you’ve been living under a rock, Crealine h2o is a gentle, fragrance-free micellear cleanser that removes makeup and cleanses your skin at the same time. It’s selling point, I believe, is that you can simply use this and there is no need to rinse. It’s also great for sensitive skin types.

Cedel Scented Hairspray $4.99
A new product from Cedel, I received the scented hairspray in Oriental Blossom (there are three scents available – Oriental Blossom, Raspberry Punch and Coconut Bay). I love the idea of scented hairsprays because normal hairsprays tend to make me nauseous. I don’t usually use hairsprays in my day-to-day hair styling but do use them for special occasions. Oriental Blossom has a very slight floral scent and even though there’s supposedly a slight touch of ginger, I couldn’t smell the ginger (thank goodness! I hate ginger lol!).

Be a Bombshell Eyeliner $19

We’ve received a number of Be a Bombshell products, with the brand making an appearance in the October 2013 and February 2014 boxes.
This month, it’s their eyeliner which looks like a fat texta with a slightly thick tip.

I received this in midnight, a navy blue with a slight purple touch. I haven’t had to chance to try this out yet. However, I will say that this eyeliner doesn’t budge! (Well, not easily anyways….) That swatched remained on my arm for hours!

Teeez Trend Cosmetics Chain of Stones Nail Lacquer in Melted Copper $15

When I first unboxed this, I literally gasped. I was so excited haha I love holo polishes and Melted Copper is a … copper with a bit of orange to it (lol duh) shade with a holographic finish.

So two sample size products and three full size products = thumbs up! Pretty much every product this month is useful to me and the value (worth at least $40) of this month’s box made it one of my favourite Violet Boxes to date.
