June Violet Box


On Friday I received the very first Violet Box! I've been really looking forward to this box, as I'm such a fan of subscription boxes, and Violet Box has just hit the market! I've heard a bit of hype around Violet Box in the last few months, so having it arrive on Friday was pretty exciting!


The box itself is a chic black cardboard box, with their gorgeous and classic design in purple. I love that it's easily reusable without looking too tacky!


I love the design on the information card. The card itself is not unlike those of other subscription boxes, giving a quick description of the products included.


All of the goodies. I'm seeing a few interesting products!


CK One Gloss Eye Color in Ultra

At first I thought this was a lip gloss, and when I pulled it out to see a shimmery silver I was a little bit confused. Then I reread the box, and was pleasantly surprised! While this "eye gloss" is extremely sheer, it's also really beautiful. I could definitely use it to create some lovely looks, and having received a silver colour, I'm happy that this is so versatile.


Calvin Klein Sheer Beauty Perfume Sample

I'm always happy to receive perfume samples, as it's probably the most usable thing you can get in subscription boxes. It's the perfect way to properly test a perfume, and practically every woman can take advantage.


Lash Control Clear Coat Mascara and Brow Fix

I'm oh so excited to receive this! I've been on the hunt for something like this for a little while, but never got around to actually buying one, so this works out perfectly! I honestly can't wait to test this one out!


Eau Thermale Avene Gentle Gel Cleanser

While I'm happy to receive a 50ml sample, I wonder why Avene gives their samples to practically every sample box! There's only so much Avene us girls can use! A cleanser never goes astray, however, so I'm not displeased. I haven't received this in any other box, as far as I can remember.


John Plunkett Essentials Glyco Peel

This is a night time exfoliator, and I can't wait to test it out! I've been hearing a lot of good things about this brand, so I'm pretty excited to receive this!


Argania Hair Oil Light

I'm always happy to get hair products, and this is a nifty little bottle! I like that it's light oil, as I already have fairly natural oily hair, it's good to use something that's not too oily. Can't wait to test this out!

--

Overall I think this is a pretty good first box. I think it's a fairly strong box, and I'm excited to see what else is in store from Violet Box. A subscription for this box will set you back $22.95, which is a little extra compared to a few of the other boxes. I'm not sure how I feel about this, as I'm not sure I see a whole lot of difference between this and Bellabox/Lust Have It... but time will tell! I like to receive a few boxes before making up my mind. 

Have you received your Violet Box yet? If so, what did you think? Do you think you'll be subscribing?

  1. I just unsubscribed from Lust Have It. Received my first box and I was a bit disappointed. This box looks great so far!

    I'm not sure if I'll be subscribing to this one; currently contemplating on subscribing to Bellabox after seeing their June box.

    1. Oh what a shame, I'm usually a big fan of LHI but I haven't got this month's box yet... though I have been hearing some bad things!
      Bellabox has been pretty flat all year but hopefully they're starting to pick up! I usually find Bellabox is great whenever LHI is bad, and vice versa haha! It makes it really hard to pick one!

  3. Thanks so much for adding a photo of the box, I was really curious to see what it looked like.

    I don't know about this box, I'm not really excited by what I see, seems like everyone got the same with a variation on the eye colour.

    I really would have liked to have seen up market new products I haven't seen in other boxes like they claimed.

    1. That's ok!

      I know what you mean, it's a shame everyone got the same colour! I guess this is just the first box, so I'll be interested to see how the others go!

  5. I think $22 is a fair bit to pay for these products. I think they included a nice range of products but not things i'd use.

    1. I agree, but let's hope they include a bit more next month!

  6. I was tossing up subscribing to Violet Box, great start that's for sure. If they keep it up, I'll be letting my LHi subscription cease for sure, esp after the box I got today... great array of products, I've got just a little bit of sub-box envy at the moment ;)

    1. I've heard bad things about this month's LHI! Still haven't received mine.. hoping it comes tomorrow! Well keep a look out, hopefully Violet Box keeps up the good work! :)

    2. Thx Jasmine! I received my box in the mail today and I received the blue shade called Vivid :) It's a pretty and vibrant blue that I'm looking forward to wearing during the weekend or when I'm going out late with the girls. I was a little over-excited about the CK One Gloss Eyecolors that I ended up getting swatches of all three shades, that Violet Box seems to have distributed, while in Myers lol!

  8. This one seems like one of the better boxes out there on the market right now!
    Lots of useful products, I like how there isn't one of those darn dry shampoos!

    1. Bahahaha I know right! I never used to even use dry shampoo until I started getting them in the boxes! I'll admit, now I really like them, haha but still! :P

  9. I am looking forward to receiving my box. I think this looks a lot better than recent bellaboxes I gve received. I hope the second box is just as good.

  10. The eye gloss & lash control looks interesting!! I haven't sub to a beauty box in ages, I'm on the hunt for one. Either violet box or wantable!

    ReplyDelete
  11. Whilst I'm not subbed to any boxes, I must agree with you on Avene.... They are pretty much in every box! O.o

    ReplyDelete
  12. Still waiting on mine! I think I received the perfume sample in another box, but I do love sample vials so not complaining. I do like the look of that mascara, interesting concept and I use clear mascara on my brows.

    I think the glycolic peel is the most interesting product, but not sure if its suitable for my skin!

    What do you think of the CK One pencil? I'm not sure what I think of the new range of CK one cosmetics.

  13. I wish we get Violet Box in the UK because this box looks way better than any beauty boxes we get over here.

  14. I got the CK Eye Gloss in 'Ultra' which is a shimmery gold colour~ ^^; I would have preferred the silver tbh but I'm still looking forward to giving it a go~ :)

    Personally I think $22.95 is a bit steep atm as I'm not seeing much difference between Violet Box products and Bellabox products =/ I think Bellabox is the only subscription box that I've actually been consistently happy with (with May being the one exception) and I'll most likely be unsubscribing from Lust Have It after this month... haven't made up my mind about Violet Box because the products seem pretty good but not extraordinary, which I would expect given that it is the most expensive box out there aside from Her Fashion Box which at least gives you accessories and a pretty magazine~ ^^;

  15. Seems like a really nice box, I must say. This is the first I hear of it though... :)

  16. I like the violet box. It can be a good present for your wife.
