[UNBOXING] by M: Violet Box December '13


As much as I love trying products out, I have not felt the need to jump onto the sample box bandwagon. Mostly because I already have way too many samples lying around my room which . But last month I decided to sign up for the Violet Box because they had a $10 off your first box offer (usually $22.95 per month). I was pretty excited for my first sample box ever to arrive.



I was pleasantly surprised at how many full sized items I got. I definitely prefer it this way, less items with more product rather than many sachets. And oooh palette! 



1. Crabtree & Evelyn pomegranate hand therapy ($10)
2. Sweetpea & Fay j'adore les levres "I love lips!" ($12.99)

The Crabtree & Evelyn hand cream has a very strong scent, like similar handcreams.  I did not realise how thick and pigmented the Sweetpea & Fay liquid lipstick was and accidentally squeezed out too much for the swatch, but you can definitely see how intense it is.  This is my chance to try purple lips, I am very much a boring pink kind of girl.


3. Evo the Therapist calming condition ($29.95 for 300ml)
4. Evo the Therapist calming shampoo ($29.95 for 300ml)

Shampoo/conditioner samples are my favourite to get because you never really know how they work without trying it first. Thank goodness they gave us more than a sachet to use because those things are so hard to open with slippery hands.



5. Jelly Pong Pong wide awake palette ($32)

I don't think I would have paid $32 for this. The packaging is very plasticy and the product inside seem quite cheap (so far). The Jelly Pong Pong palette was "sweating" when I opened it because it was quite a warm day. The concealers feel very thin so I'm not sure how well they're going to work. Also the eyebrow powders are a little weird and look like they're work well as eyeshadows, but alas definitely not smooth enough for that.


Feelings after my first box? Hmm it is nice to have some new things to play with but honestly I really can't justify such a monthly expense on my student budget. I would rather use it on items which I really want and not just leave it up to chance.

    1. Well let's just say that I'm not staying subscribed to it. Yeah Wantable looks great especially with the whole personalised items idea. But $40 is a bit much to spend each month even if you are "saving" so much more.

    2. , hay là bàn tay thật lớn kia thì người thường đều không nhìn thấy. Chỉ có Vương Lâm và bổn tôn mới có thể nhìn và cảm giác được. Chân thực chỉ có những hố sâu và vết nứt mà thân thể bổn tôn gậy ra. Chẳng qua tiếng động thật lớn kia truyền đến nơi đây cũng đã rất yếu ớt.

      Tại trong thôn xóm không quá trăm người này, một người con gái đang nấu cơm trong một gian nhà. Khi nàng ngẩng đầu, ánh mắt nhìn về đứa trẻ đang chơi đùa lộ ra vẻ dịu dàng, tay vuốt bụng của mình.

      Vương Lâm đang ở trên trời cao, cuốn sinh tử luân hồi trong tay vung lên, nguyên anh Lý Mộ Uyển từ bên trong xuất hiện, vừa xuất hiện liền nhanh chóng tiêu tan. Ánh mắt Vương Lâm lộ ra vẻ dịu dàng, điểm trên nguyên anh Lý Mộ Uyển một cái. Nguyên anh hóa thdong tam mu lậu cho thuê nhà trọ cho thuê nhà trọ nhạc sàn cực mạnh tư vấn pháp luật qua điện thoại công ty luật số điện thoại tư vấn pháp luật dịch vụ thành lập công tyành một ánh sao băng bay nhanh về phía thôn xóm.

      Lúc này nắm tay thật lớn giữa bầu trời đuổi tới, hạ xuống đập về phía nguyên anh Lý Mộ Uyển phát ra những tiếng ầm ầm. Ánh mắt Vương Lâm lóe lên, chắn ở phía trước.

  2. Violet box looks great and it cost you only 13$ after getting 10$ off on your first box. I am also thinking to try violet box, If I will not like it I can unsubscribe it after one month. I am a bit disappointed with my first bellabox.
