Violet Box August 2013

Something that I have noticed about Violet Box is that they tend to limit the amount of products that you receive. But boy, do they make up for it! This month had five products and the box seemed a little empty. However, I was still thoroughly happy with the products included this month!

One thing I like and appreciate about Violet Box is that they don’t fluff around with themes. They give you amazing products without the annoying attempt at trying to make them tie together.

The first product in the box was the full sized Ghd Style Heat Protect Spray. I am pretty impressed that they’ve included such a huge product in the box. I hadn’t heard that Ghd was selling hair products as well as styling tools, but I am definitely excited to try it out! I think it smells amazing too!

Dr Bragi Marine Enzyme Age Management Moisturiser is a high-end product which uses Marine Enzymes to optimise cell function, which keeps the skin as young as possible. It is free from harmful parabens, artificial preservatives, perfumes, silicones and much more.

[I bet Jesse would really appreciate Dr Bragi's products]

Something that does not appear in my makeup collection often (only once actually) is a lip crayon. I’ve never been crazy about them to be perfectly honest. I haven’t heard of Jelly Pong Pong, but I LOVE the name. Kudos to the company for the catchy brand name :) This lip crayon swatches nicely and is actually quite moisturising to feel.

Another product form the Jelly Pong Pong beauty line is the 2-in-1 Eyeliner and Shadow. This is a dark brown shade with burgandy undertones, and I think it would look great for Fall or Winter. Australia, however, is about to enter into SPRING so I will be saving this one for a rainy day. Probably literally.

Lastly was a sample of shampoo and conditioner from Goldwell. I have SO many samples of shampoo and conditioner to use up now! I am still really happy to get these two since I have dyed my hair blonde. It should really help out with any dryness and help repair any damage.

So that concludes my Violet Box for August. Check out my accompanying video on YouTube as well! It should be going up in the next couple of days :)

Stay Minty!

    Oh Kate that box looks so great. I was tossing up about subscribing to this one, now I wish I did! I would love the GHD spray and the lip blush. Please let us know how you go with the spray. Especially if it keeps hold on curled hair :D
