This months Violet Box (at a standard $22.95 per month, so slightly more than some of the others) was a birthday special. I didn’t realise it when I signed up but I’m glad that I did it this month, because instead of a box they shipped it in a gorgeous polka dotted caddy cosmetic case. Like every other girl I’ve had a million and one various cosmetic pouches over the years, but this is the first one (I’ve had) that’s had nice compartments and holders for various things. There are two zipped compartments, one large one and a smaller one with a zipped pouch, 3 pencil holders and a pocket (below).
You can buy these cosmetic pouches on my beauty store or in store at David Jones.
It also included a Chella eye pencil, Bioderma pore refining serum, GHD straight and tame cream, Strange Beautiful geometric nailpolish duo and Appelle’s Apothecary travel shampoo/conditioner set.
This is the first subscription box that I opened that felt… well… substantial from the moment I opened it. Firstly the package was heavy, secondly it was fun pulling things out of different pockets in the cosmetic case. All up I got 5 full size products and two reasonable sample/travel sizes- the RRP of the total pack is well over $100. Half of these products I will give away because I don’t need them, but it was still my most exciting box yet! 5 stars 😀
Can’t wait to see what’s in next months Violet Box, or if the quality of this one was too heavily skewed by the birthday factor.
