Violet Box January 2013 Review

Violet Box is another company that's been impressing me with their monthly contents. The January 2013 box had a good range of skin care products mainly from brands I haven't heard of so I was excited to get to try out new stuff.

Violet Box January 2013
  1. VILLAINESS Luxury Body Soap in Ginger Snapped

    A slightly psychotic blend of sweet cinnamon, rich cardamom, spicy ginger, and a faint touch of innocent vanilla."

    This soap smells so gorgeous and luxurious. It's scent is slightly sweet and not at all overpowering. It's packaged in a small envelope and the sticker label has a vintage-esque look. The soap contains ginger root throughout to aid the warming and exfoliation of the skin.
  2. MOR Hand Creams in 'Black Currant Iris' and 'Basil & Grape'

    I haven't opened the two sample satchets yet, but I'm sure they would smell gorgeous.
  3. ACORELLE Eau De Parfum in 'Land of Cedar'

    "With it's blend of cedar and bergamot essential oils, LAND OF CEDAR eau de parfum will restore strength, energy and a positive attitude."

    Unfortunately, I did not like the scent of this perfume on me. The scent's top notes are too strong for me and too woodsy. The scent also reminds me of licorice (which I don't like). I do however like it as a room spray. I spritz it around prior to meditating and it was a great scent to set the mood. Spraying it in a room diluted the strong scent and left my room smelling like a health spa.
  4. SO SUSAN Water Based Pure Luminizer

    Made in Italy, this cruelty free illuminator is 82% water-based and does not contain sulfates, mineral oils, phtalates, triclosan and animal by-products. I'm not too keen on shimmer products but I tried a little dot on my brow bone and was impressed. You only need a little bit of product to achieve the look you want.
  5. LUSH Gorgeous Facial Moisturiser

    Lush's popular facial moisturiser has a steady following among beauty affecionados. I've received samples of this cream before. I've grown to like LUSH products so I liked that this was included. I'll be using this for my next DIY home facial.
  6. SO SUSAN 4-Free Nail Lacquer in '12'

    12 is a soft pink shade. I'm glad that I received a relatively neutral shade as I seem to be wearing those colours a lot more. The polish formula drys relatively quickly and contains rosehip oil to moisturise and strengthen the nails and skin around it.

Overall, the contents of the January Violet Box did not disappoint. I will be staying subscribed for a little longer. I was thinking of stoping all my subscription boxes but I've been so impressed with Violet Box and Bella Box lately that I've decided to stay subscribed for a little longer.
