Violet Box: Unboxing February 2015

Hi everyone!

So if you read my last violet box post I was appalled by their customer service and wasn’t too happy with the contents of the box. I contacted them to cancel my subscription but they said I couldn’t as it was past the date of cancellations (even though I only received my box that day…) which was so stupid. However, I am somewhat glad they didn’t cancel my subscription as I’m pretty happy with this box – even more happy than I was with my Lust Have It! box last month. This box arrived on the 26th February, which was on time and not late like last time which is a plus (still waiting for my LHI box, don’t have high hopes for that).

* For those of you who don’t know what Violet Box is, it’s a monthly subscription in which you pay $22.95 per month to get a box filled with 4-6 samples (full sized products aren’t guaranteed).


Here is what I got:

2015-02-26 11.32.45

The box changed to this greyish design.

2015-02-26 21.36.51

Everything collectively.

2015-02-26 11.34.19

“Pretty Woman Magnetix Nail Polish”. RRP: $9.99

2015-02-26 12.18.46

Can’t wait to try this out!

2015-02-26 11.34.15

“Natural World Moroccan Argan Oil”. RRP: $5.99

2015-02-26 11.34.53

“Suki Exfoliate Foaming Cleanser” RRP: $46.95 for 120mL. Got the 30mL – $11.70

2015-02-26 13.35.01

This stuff smells really good and has an interest texture – the scent reminds me of coca cola… does anyone else agree?

2015-02-26 11.35.24

“Emite Make Up BB Highlighting Pen”. RRP: $32.

2015-02-26 11.36.06

“Teeez Trend Cosmetics Easy on the Eyes Pencil”. RRP: $26. (How cute is the packaging?)

Total value: $85.70 with 4/5 full products.


I actually am excited about every product except the pencil eyeliner (I think they’re pretty useless because they always smudge and run – also got one in my LHI box last month, however the packaging of this one is adorbs & it’s super creamy). I am especially thrilled with the highlighting BB pen and the magnetic nail polish! I cannot wait to see how the polish turns out, will keep you all posted on that! Just to let you all know I’ve unsubscribed to this box, but after this months box I am slightly regretting it!

What are your thoughts on this box/what did you get in your beauty box last month?

UPDATE 7/3/15: Okay, wow guys. I asked them to cancel my subscription on the 5th of Feb and they said they would, then on the 5th of March another payment has been taken out of my bank account. I had also contacted them throughout the month to ensure my subscription was cancelled (they didn’t reply to any so I assumed it was) – this is disgusting service to say the least. I will have to give them a call, I think that’s the only way I’ll be able to cancel. I wouldn’t mind getting another box, but I honestly don’t wish to support such a company which uses dishonest practices to gain money at the expense of the customers or anyone in general. Please be warned if you sign up for this box & call up when you need to cancel.
