September Violet Box

VB1

I have been very lucky this month, in that all my subscription boxes (aside from one) came within two days - that's two boxes a day! I was eagerly awaiting this month's Violet Box as they have really impressed me in the past! 

VB2

It's a very nail oriented box this month! 




VB3

Nutri Synergy NS-5 Cuticle & Nail Complex

I actually received this back in July in the Lust Have It Eco Box for Winter (which you can read about here)... and shamefully, I have yet to try it! My nails have actually been wonderful, so knock on wood, I won't actually need it any time soon. This will most likely go to my sister, or maybe even towards a giveaway!

VB4

Sinful Colors Polish in Timbleberry

I've been getting a lot of Sinful Colors recently, and I love them. I disliked the bottle when I first saw them, but once you have a bunch of them that match, it looks good! This colour is very much like many that I already own, but that really doesn't bother me in the slightest!

VB5

Eleven Australia Miracle Hair Treatment

Anything that has "miracle" in the title has to be good! I haven't heard much about Eleven, but I have heard a few things, so I'll definitely be interested in trying this one out!

VB6

The Vintage Cosmetic Company Slanted Tweezers

Oh I've heard a lot about this particular brand, which is based in the UK if my sources are correct! I've been drooling over some of their goodies on many a blog, so it's very exciting to see these gorgeous tweezers included! In my personal opinion, a lady can never have too many pairs of tweezers - as we always have hair that can be plucked!

VB7

The Vintage Cosmetic Company Emery Board

Oh, emery boards, how I love them! This one is almost too adorable to use (it has a gorgeous floral design on the back) but I'll still throw it in my handbag, as I always seem to misplace my work emery boards!

VB8

Timeless Truth Q-10 Caviar Nourishing Mask

I really can't wait to try this. In fact I think I'll use it this weekend! I love anything in gold packaging, as it just makes it look expensive - and this one looks amazing! (Especially with the word caviar in it!) I'm a big fan of masks, and now that the weather is getting warmer, I'm more inclined to use them as they are usually cool!

VB9

Special Offer - Swissdent

There was also a special offer for Swissdent products. I found this a little on the odd side as nothing from Swissdent was actually included in the box! I figured maybe there should have been a small sample, something to lure us into using the discount and buying the full sized products! Strange, but not uncommon! A good offer nonetheless!

So, I've read very mixed reviews on this month's Violet Box - but personally I liked it. While it wasn't amazing like the other boxes were, I'm content. I don't expect subscription boxes to be amazing every single month, it's just not possible. What's amazing to one person, is boring to another. This box had a lot of great products in it, a lot that I'm excited to try, but also some that I'm not so excited by. It's still a good box, and good effort from newcomers Violet Box!

Violet Box costs $22.95 per month, and you can purchase it here.

Have you received your Violet Box yet? If so, what did you think? Did you like this month's box?

  1. I'm not subbed to Violet Box, and like you I've seen very mixed reviews of this months box. I've tried the Eleven hair product and didn't find it to do anything miracle-like at all, but it might just work on your hair... I'd be happy with all the other goodies so like you, I'd probably choose the word content also. Let us know how you go with the Cuticle & Nail Complex stuff! Mine are needing some lovin! :)

    1. Oh what a shame about the Eleven hair product... I hate it when that happens. But you're right, everyone is different so it might work for some and do nothing for others! And haha I'll let you know how I go! xx

  2. I really liked the box too :) I was baffled about the offer for Swissdent.. I'm not really enticed to send away for a toothpaste but I might if I remember/am bored. I've yet to see someone get the other mask which is a STEM CELL mask. I want to know how it's possible haha!

    Great post :)

    1. It was so bizarre! And eep... stem cell mask! Weird!
      Thanks Kate xx

  3. The box has really grown on me, when I first opened it, I was really sad that there wasn't a makeup item but all of the items are really useful and can cater to everyone.

    I was really expecting a Swissdent product in the box when I saw the little info brochure on top of all the products!

    1. I'm usually the same with beauty boxes, haha! I'm underwhelmed at first and then a little while later I think to myself: "Hey that's kinda cool actually." Haha! I was also expecting a Swissdent product... so weird! xx

  4. I think I might have to add this to my subscriptions list. I like pretty much everything here :)

    1. Oh that's great! I think you'll like it! It's like getting a present every month in the mail... even though you pay for it haha! xx

  5. Have you done a post where you compare your experiences with each of the monthly boxes you receive? I've signed up to two - Lust Have It and BellaBox but there are so many options and I'm thinking about dropping Lust Have It... they've been pretty average.

    What are your thoughts?

    1. Hi Nicole, I haven't actually done a post like that, but it is a very good idea. I'll definitely consider posting, as I am currently subscribed to all the Australian boxes!

      I think especially with LHI and BB, they tend to go back and forth. Sometimes one is amazing while the other is not so great, then after a while they seem to switch. It's a bit weird. xx
