Violet Box March 2015

Morning lovelies!!

My Violet Box just rocked up!  It's kind of late in the month, but it arrived in March (unlike another box i won't name).
I must admit i opened my box, and was very disappointed.  On first glance this is a very, very boring box.
But the card redeemed it!
Biology Equilibrium Body Lotion No. 304-$52-sample size

I'm not a fan of VB's info card this month.  The RRP price on this is for 375ml, but there is a 100ml tube for $29 (and this being a 30ml sample makes it a decent size).  I've never heard of this brand.  It is Aussie (yay!), and smells divine!  From the website-

Body Lotion No. 304 delivers long lasting hydration in a lightweight, non-greasy formula. Active plant DNA, bio lipids and powerful Australian extracts fight premature ageing, brighten the skin, restore natural lipids and lock in fundamental moisture reserves to promote a youthful glow.

Aqua (Water), Glycerin, Cetearyl Alcohol, Simmondsia Chinensis Seed Oil, Hydrolyzed Jojoba Esters, Sodium Polyacrylate, Panthenol, Olea Europaea Fruit Oil, Rosa Moschata Seed Oil, Macadamia Ternifolia Seed Oil, Glycerin, Alcohol Denat, Microcitrus Australasica Fruit Extract, Banksia Serrata Flower Extract, Davidsonia Pruriens Fruit Extract, Alcohol Denat., Tasmannia Lanceolata Fruit Extract, Syzygium Leuhmanii Fruit Extract, Kunzea Pomifera Fruit Extract, Phospholipids, Glycine Soja Oil, Glycolipids, Glycine Soja Sterols, Cymbopogon Flexuosus Oil, Citrus Paradisi Peel Oil, Rosmarinus Officinalis Leaf Extract, Perlagonium Graveolens Oil, Phenoxyethanol, Citric Acid, Linalool, Citronellol, d-Limonene.

This smells like lemongrass/lemon myrtle, and feels amazing on my skin (plus leaves my otherwise extremely dry patches feeling moisturised and soft).  I would love to see more from them.
Bioderma Sébium Foaming Gel-$24.95-sample size

Meh!  Although i'm glad it's a different product to the normal Bioderma samples that are sent out.
Lonvitalite C8 Collagen Crystal Eye Mask-$32-sample size

Full size of this is 6 sets.  This is supposed to help dark circles and fine lines.  Must admit, i'd be happy to never see another Lonvitalite product, however i know a lot of people like them, and i'll be interested to see if these work.
Doucce Lip Definer-$29.95-full size

This was one of our sneak peeks.  Doucce is an American brand, and new to VB.  This didn't tug at all when swatched, went on smoothly and is well pigmented.  It's in colour 456, which is described as a soft pink (although to me it looks more like a dusty pink/brown).  It's a great neutral shade.Do
Doucce Mineral Matte Lipstick-$29.95-full size

This is what got me excited about the box.  This lipstick matches the lip pencil!  It's in colour 903 Champagne (again, though, it's a dusty pink/brown, although a shade or 2 lighter than the lip pencil).  It smells delicious (like pineapple and musk lollies), and went on so smoothly.  It is SPF 10, and contains Vit E, so is supposed to keep your lips hydrated, which is a problem with a lot of matte products.  I can't wait to give these a proper go.  Oh, and the packaging is amazing!

OMG, the lipstick and pencil saved the box.  Between them and the body lotion i love this box, although i'll use everything in it.

What do you think?
