Violet Box (June 2014)

June Violet Box


I was very fortunate to be a part of Violet Box from the very start! I've got to say that Violet Box has done a terrific job in putting a smile on my dial every month I've received my Violet Box! I love that every month, there is always a variety of beauty delights, including hair care, skin care and cosmetic products. Violet Box just gets better and better, month after month, and I'm sure they will maintain their goal to bring new, innovative and exciting beauty products so that we could all explore and play with!

Instead of receiving the usual black Violet Box signature box, I received all the beauty contents housed in a cosmetic pouch and everything was all packaged in a padded parcel bag. It was a nice surprise to receive something totally unexpected! 

Inside my June Violet Box parcel, there was a wonderful mixture of 7 products (4 full size and 3 deluxe sample size products) ranging from hair care, skin care, brow and nail products from new and popular brands! 

 I love treating my hair to ghd products, as my hair always looks great after using their treatment and styling products. I received a full sized bottle of ghd Straight & Tame Cream (A$24.00/120ml) which is designed to help tame and transform messy, unruly and unmanageable hair. The opaque white cream has a nice consistency with a refreshing scent and the formula contains Vitamins B5, C and E to nourish and hydrate hair. I've been using a few pumps of this cream after towel drying my hair it really does help to make my hair easier to brush through and style. 

Bioderma Sebium Pore Refiner (A$30.95/30ml, 15ml sample received) is ideal for those who have combination and oily skin types and is ideal for use as a makeup base to help refine skin texture and minimise the appearance of enlarged pores. I always use a makeup base/primer when applying makeup, so this handy cream by Bioderma will be put to good use!

I was first introduced to Chella last month when I received their Ivory Lace Highlighter Pencil. I love the effect this highlighter gives to brighten and widen my eyes, so I was super excited to receive another product from Chella in this month's Violet Box. The Chella Brow Pencil (A$21.50, full size received) is a very fine and thin mechanical pencil which helps to colour and define the brows. I never ever leave my brows untreated, so it was interesting to try this brow pencil. I love how fine the pencil is, so it really does help to define the brows without any error. 

Strange Beautiful is a totally brand new brand to me! Jane Schub is the designer behind Strange Beautiful and she is a graduate from the Rhode Island School of Design.  Strange Beautiful is a nail polish brand that house a vast collection of nail polish shades that are deliberately nameless. This is quite strange, as I've never come across nail polish shades without a shade name/number. The Strange Beautiful Nail Polish duo (A$22/set) I received is full size and includes a vibrant fire-engine red shade and an elegant beige/nude shade.

I love the packaging and the fact that there are two gorgeous wearable shades of nail polish bottles which share the same cap. So cute!! The consistency of the formula is quite good and the formula is completely free from toluene, formaldehyde and DBP. I was able to achieve a completely opaque finish with one coat of the red shade and two coats of the beige shade. The shades are beautiful pigmented and presents a vibrant, glossy and creamy finish to my nails!

Appelles is a new hair care brand that I've heard about so many times, but I never had the chance to try it out myself. The Blackseed Shampoo (A$18.95/150ml and A$44.95/500ml, 60ml sample received) is infused with rosemary, ylang ylanf and lavadin super, the scent of this shampoo is incredibly divine that it makes me feel revitalised! The Tamanu Conditioner (A$18.95/150ml and A$44.95/500ml, 60ml sample received) is also infused with the same ingredients as the shampoo and it too smells wonderful! I love hair products that give a refreshing scent as it really does make my hair smell nice!

This is the first time I've received a cosmetic pouch as part of my Violet Box subscription. This Caddy Cosmetic Pouch (A$26/each) is quite compact as it contains two large compartments where one compartment can be used to carry bulky items and the second compartment can be used to store eye pencils, mascara, lipsticks and brushes etc. The material is very sturdy, so it will keep your skincare and makeup essentials safe and sound!

I am super impressed with the contents of my June Violet Box as everything I received is useable and useful for my needs! The June Violet Box is valued at around A$120, so you are definitely getting your money's worth! I absolutely love every single product! If I had to choose my best three, it would be the Strange Beautiful Nail Polish, Appelles Hair Products and Chella Brow Pencil!

Violet Box beauty subscriptions cost A$22.95/month, A$66/3 months, A$130/6 months or A$250/year and you will receive a surprise Violet Box containing 4-6 beauty treats (full/sample size) at your door step every month. For more information on Violet Box, please click here

Kérastase Cristalliste Range

My long hair always ends up being quite a challenge to maintain and manage, especially when I don't have any hair treatment products that are suitable for my thick and heat-damaged hair. It wasn't until I was first introduced to the Kérastase Cristalliste Range a few weeks ago that my hair is now looking as healthy as ever! Today I will be reviewing the Kérastase Cristalliste Luminous Perfecting Masque and Cristal Sculpt Dual Gloss Serum. If your hair is lacking the moisture, shine and health it needs, then the Kérastase Cristalliste Range will come to the rescue!

Kérastase Cristalliste Luminous Perfecting Masque (A$60/200ml) is a hair treatment mask that is ideal for use on dry and long hair to achieve lightweight, luminous and luscious locks. My hair is long and thick which requires a lot of attention and maintenance, so this hair mask is the perfect treatment to transform my hair to reveal full volume and healthy looking hair. The formula is enriched with three core ingredients: a Polymer derived from Glucose to facilitate blow-drying, a Dry Oil for intense nourishment and hydration, and both Candellia Cera and Ceramides to protect hair against external aggressors. 

To use this Luminous Perfecting Masque, apply a small dollop to towel-dried hair, massage the product through the lengths and ends, leave in for 5 minutes and then rinse out with lukewarm water. I always treat my hair with a hair mask once a week to ensure my hair stays healthy and luminous.

The Luminous Perfecting Masque is a pearlescent opaque pink formula that is quite thick yet easy to massage into my hair. The scent is absolutely beautiful as it leaves my hair smelling like a fresh bouquet of flowers. While rinsing the product from my hair my hair felt incredibly silky and velvety smooth and I run my fingers through my hair under the shower head. My hair feels beautiful nourished and well hydrated. This is just what my hair needs!

Kérastase Cristalliste Cristal Sculpt Dual Gloss Serum (A$45/30ml) is a luminous double gloss sculpting serum that helps to boost the shine and radiance in hair. The Dual Gloss Serum contains two liquid components that are very thin in consistency. Both components are dispensed simultaneously from the pump bottle before you can mix the two formulas in the palms of your hands and apply to your hair. The transparent serum is an an aqueous based formula that contains Alpha Hydroxy Acid to help smooth the structure of hair while the light pink coloured gloss helps to boost shine with the presence of 'liquid mirror' particles. I found it quite interesting that this serum exists in the form of two components where each component has it's own benefit and action to improve the structure and nature of hair. 

To use this Dual Gloss Serum, apply 1-2 pumps to your palm and mix thoroughly to obtain a homogeneous mixture. Apply to wet/dry or towel-dried hair and work the product through the mid-lengths and ends of your hair. I prefer using this Dual Gloss Serum after towel drying my hair as this is the point where my hair becomes quite unmanageable. The best way to apply is to start form the ends and work your way to the mid-lengths of hair. Running my fingers through my hair while applying the Dual Gloss Serum helps to break free tangled sections of hair. Leave the Dual Gloss Serum in your hair and do not rinse out. This Dual Gloss Serum can also be used with styling irons and before blow drying, so it is quite a versatile product that helps to lock in moisture and strength to your hair. 

The scent of this Dual Gloss Serum is quite fragrant and invokes a pleasant and crisp floral scent that leaves my hair smelling lovely and fresh like a bouquet of flowers! The consistency of the Dual Gloss Serum is very lightweight, so I've had to use at least two full pumps to thoroughly apply the product to my long and thick hair. The serum doesn't weight my hair down at all, which is a great plus as my hair normally feels unmanageable, messy and difficult to work with. I love how this serum can be used to prep and protect the hair before using heat styling tools or a dryer. My hair feels silky smooth, less coarse and less frizzy to the point where I feel like my hair is getting a good dose of nutrients to help strengthen and tame my hair.  My hair feels a lot more manageable and easy to style as the formula does help to leave my hair tangle-free!

The Kérastase Cristalliste range is available at selected hair salons nationwide.

Do you incorporate a hair treatment mask and serum to maintain hair?

OPI Brazil Nail Collection - Copacababies Mini Nail Lacquers

The latest installment at OPI is the sassy Brazil Copacababies (A$24.95/set) consisting of four 'tropicalicious' mini nail lacquers! Such a cute name!! What's more to love about these shades is their quirky names! I love how OPI are always so creative with naming their shades.

Suzi Weiss-Fischmann (OPI Co-Founder & Exec. VP) - ''With sun soaked shores, tropical fruits, and lush flora/fauna, Brazil is such an inspiring locale. I wanted women around the world to embrace the energy and playfulness for which Brazilian women are known.''

Next Stop... The Bikini Zone

Next Stop... The Bikini Zone is a purple/grey duochrome shade, described by OPI as an amethyst-toned pewter, contains an abundance of miniscule silver glitters. This shade is surprisingly very sheer, so I would suggest using this shade as a top coat over any dark and bold shade.

Kiss Me I'm Brazilian

Kiss Me I'm Brazilian is a baby pink neon creme shade that's just like a Barbie pink shade! It's a pretty pink shade to this collection, though I'm sure there are many dupes of this shade out there. The consistency is quite thick and creamy, so one coat is sufficient for a smooth and opaque finish.

AmazON... AmazOFF

AmazON... AmazOFF is a gorgeous vibrant teal shade with very subtle shimmers. I absolutely LOVE this shade!! The gorgeous teal shade is so eye-catching and you could easily pull this shade in any season. The formula and consistency is quite lovely and very easy to work with. Only two coats was enough to achieve an opaque finish.

Where Did Suzi's Man-Go?

Where Did Suzi's Man-Go? is a very tropical orange/mango creme shade that just screams paradise! This shade is quite a fun and unique colour that I'm sure most people will love! The consistency was pretty good as I did end up with a smooth, glossy finish with 2 coats.

The Brazil Copacababies Mini Nail Lacquer set  by OPI is available in selected Myer, David Jones stores and selected salons nationwide.

Which Copacababies shade do you love most?

Kérastase Elixir Ultime Hair Oil

One of my most loved hair treatment products is the luxurious Kérastase Elixir Ultime Hair Oil (A$55/125ml) which aims to beautify and enrich hair with 4 key emollient and nourishing ingredients: Maize, Argan, Camellia and Pracaxi oils. My long and thick hair needs a regular boost in nourishing and hydrating ingredients as it does tend to go dry during the cooler seasons when I always opt for nice warm showers. Additionally, my daily hair regime of using a hair-dryer and heat-styling tools just adds to the damage done to my hair. The great thing about this Kérastase Elixir Ultime Hair Oil is that you can distribute the oil to dry or wet hair and you can also use it in 5 different ways:
  • Heat protectant: to create a barrier while providing protection against heat damage
  • Pre-wash: to prep the hair before cleansing and allowing the hair to be tangle-free
  • Leave-in conditioner: to lock in the nourishing benefits of the core ingredients. I sometimes leave in a couple of drops in my hair after showering and before going to bed
  • Finishing product: to maximise shine, protection and nourish the hair
  • Re-touch: just re-apply a couple of drops to re-nourish and tame the hair
The transparent elixir is very thin in consistency and once I apply a couple of drops to the mid-lengths and ends of my hair it immediately feels weightless and silky soft! My hair looks shiny, healthy and well nourished! This product is my go-to product every time I feel that my hair is lacking moisture and shine and needs protection. The oil reduces the amount of frizz and flyaways that develop after styling my hair, so it's just a great bonus that this one product can transform my hair to look naturally beautiful and impeccable!

Kérastase Elixir Ultime Hair Oil is available at selected salons nationwide.

Villa Lodola Eco-Organic Hair Treatment Products

I admire beauty brands who have a strong focus on producing certified organic and eco-friendly products that complement everyday hair, skin and body regimes! I was recently introduced to the brand Villa Lodola who follows this vision on delivering eco-organic hair and body products. Villa Lodola was first established in an official plantation located in the hills of the Upper Tiber Valley in Umbria, Italy. 

Today I will be reviewing the Oily Scalp Clay Treatment (A$17.95/100ml) and Shampoo (A$17.95/250ml), which aims to control and balance the natural oils across the scalp. Those who develop excessive sebum (natural essential oils which help to moisturise and replenish the scalp) may end up with a dry scalp which leads to dandruff. My scalp is somewhat a little oilier than a normal person would have, which is why I sometimes develop teeny tiny flakes of drandruff near my scalp. I've been treating my hair with both the Oily Scalp Clay Treatment (on a thrice-weekly basis) and Shampoo (daily basis) for the last fortnight and the results are thankfully positive!

The Villa Lodola Oily Scalp Clay Treatment is a cleansing treatment used to treat excessive sebaceous secretion.  This Clay Treatment is to be used like a facial mask to help control the production sebum from the scalp.

The Villa Lodola Oily Clay Treatment contains the following active ingredients: White Clay, Organic Willow and Silver Birch extract. The White Clay ingredient is rich in minerals and trace elements (e.g. iron, aluminium, potassium, boron and sulphur) which help to absorb excess sebum production, impurities and toxins from the scalp. The Willow and Birch ingredients assist to regulate sebum while provide purifying action on the scalp. 

To apply the creamy Oily Scalp Clay Treatment, apply a small dollop to dry hair along the front, side and back hairline. Then, gently work the product through along and over the scalp by racking it in with the fingertips. Once the scalp is completely covered in the Oily Scalp Clay Treatment, leave in place to around 5 minutes, then gradually add water and massage the product onto the scalp until the product lathers up regular shampoo. Wash and rinse the hair and continue washing the hair with shampoo. 

The scent of this Oily Scalp Clay Treatment is subtle yet quite indulgent as the aroma of the botanical florals and plants just makes me feel soothed and relaxed. The method of application was quite easy to accomplish as the formula wasn't too runny nor thick, so it was super easy to work through the product to envelop my scalp. Unlike a facial mask, this Oily Scalp Clay Treatment does not dry while you leave it in for 5 minutes. When rinsing the product from the scalp, it lathers only slightly to thoroughly cleanse the scalp. It does take time for this clay treatment to work, as I only noticed a reduction in dandruff after about 4-5 uses. After rinsing the product from my scalp I then used the Villa Lodola Oily Scalp Shampoo to cleanse my locks. 

The Villa Lodola Oily Scalp Shampoo helped to further cleanse my oily scalp and hair without causing any irritation or drying of the scalp. The core active ingredients include Organic Willow and Birch extracts which assist the regulation of sebum production from the scalp. The scent of this shampoo is very subtle and pleasant, so it doesn't leave a lingering scent after washing my hair. I've been using a generous dollop of shampoo which slowly lathers up in between my long and thick hair. Beneath the cap of the screw top bottle reveals a plastic material which helps to control the flow of product. This helps to avoid dispensing excessive product. Although my scalp felt refreshed and well cleansed, my long locks did feel rather dry and lacked moisture, so for me, it was necessary to use conditioner to nourish and hydrate my hair. Despite this, both my scalp and hair did feel fresh and clean after using the clay treatment, shampoo and my usual conditioner.

The Villa Lodola Oily Scalp Clay Treatment and Shampoo worked together to help gradually control excessive sebum production from scalp, however, I would recommend using conditioner to finish cleansing and nourishing the hair. Results were not immediate, however, after continual use, my scalp did appear to produce less and less dandruff over time. If you love hair products that are organic certified and eco-friendly, then I would definitely recommend the Villa Lodola range!

The Villa Lodola Hair Treatment range is available at Priceline stores nation-wide.

Rimmel London Moisture Renew Lipstick Collection

Rimmel London Moisture Renew Lipsticks
Rimmel London have re-formulated their Moisture Renew Lipstick collection (A$16.95), which feature a super moisturising formula that is enriched with Vitamins A, C and E to nourish the lips, SPF20 to protect the lips and packs a punch of colour for vibrant looking lips!

There are 13 gloriously rich and vibrant shades in the range: #150 Piccadilly Pink, #170 Ringa Ringa Roses, #180 Vintage Pink, #210 Fancy, #220 Heather Shimmer, #260 Amethyst Shimmer, #310 Back to Fuchsia, #330 Sloane's Plum, #360 As You Want Victoria, #500 Diva Red, #660 In Love with Ginger, #720 Notting Hill Nude and #780 Camden Brown. There are a variety of shades in this collection that range from pink to coral to red to nude and to beige. There is at least one shade that would suit everyone!

Today I have with me two gorgeous shades that I've been lusting after since they landed in my hands: #360 As You Want Victoria and #150 Piccadilly Pink. The semi-transparent violet casing of these classical-looking lipsticks look very funky and they stand out amongst all my other lipsticks in my collection.

Rimmel London Moisture Renew Lipstick in As You Want Victoria
As You Want Victoria is a beautiful bright raspberry red shade that is dramatic, super vibrant and rich in colour.

Rimmel London Moisture Renew Lipstick in Piccadilly Pink
 Piccadilly Pink is a stunning bold dusty pink shade that would suit most skin tones and would be perfect for everyday wear. 
Swatches of Rimmel London Moisture Renew Lipstick in As You Want Victoria (left) and Piccadilly Pink (right).

The formula is highly pigmented, creamy in texture and hydrating to the lips! The coverage felt quite heavy once I applied the lipstick straight from the bullet, so it was necessary to blot the lips with tissue to allow the formula to set and stay in place. The longevity was great and the formula lasted a good 4-5 hours before fading was noticeable when drinking or eating. The shades Piccadilly Pink and As You Want Victoria are very pigmented shades which eventually left a lovely stain to my lips towards the end of the day. Since the formula was uber moisturising, my lips didn't dry out at all,! They remained moisturised and beautifully stained all day. The finish of this lipstick provided a beautiful glossy veil to my lips and the intense colour of both of these shades always brightens my overall makeup look! 

The Rimmel London Moisture Renew Lipstick collection is available at Myer and David Jones department stores and Pharmacies nationwide.

Have you tried the new Rimmel London Moisture Renew lipsticks yet?

Which shade do you like best: Piccadilly Pink or As You Want Victoria?

Sally Hansen Triple Shine in #220 Flame On

This sultry and sexy shade of pink/red is the perfect match to any red lip makeup look! The formula of the new Sally Hansen Triple Shine nail polish range gives an uber glossy and shiny finish to my paws! I love the smooth and easy application of the formula and the fact that two coats will suffice for complete opacity.

The Jojoba Company Gentle Cleansing Balm and Redness Reducing Balm

Aside from the temporary flush of facial redness caused by blushing or being placed in an embarrassing moment, there also exists a more serious skin condition of facial redness (a.k.a. Rosacea), which is a skin condition some people endure when they reach towards the age of 30. There are quite a plethora of reasons why people develop facial redness and these include skin irritation, consuming hot foods, drinking alcohol, exposure to environmental stressors and even emotional stress. Facial redness triggered by one or more of these factors are quite difficult to banish completely, so it is important to identify methods to help calm, cool and relax the skin to reduce the appearance of facial redness. 

The Jojoba Company is an Australia skin care brand that has been featured on The Beauty of Red Roses blog numerous times as I absolutely love the natural and organic ingredients they use to formulate their products. The Jojoba Company caters for all skin concerns and they also produce products that aim to reduce the appearance of facial redness. I have with me here The Jojoba Company Gentle Cleansing Balm and Redness Reducing Balm to review for you all today!

One of my major skin concerns is the visible flush of redness around the corners of my nose and inner cheek area. I've incorporated both The Jojoba Company Gentle Cleansing Balm and Redness Reducing Balm to my daily skin care routine and I've been following this routine for about 2.5 weeks. Thus far, my skin is loving the goodness of ingredients within these two products!

The Gentle Cleansing Balm (A$29.95/100ml) is a jojoba-based cleansing balm that is suitable for all skin types and is enriched with Pure Australian Jojoba, Aloe Vera, Witch Hazel, Vitamin A, C, D and E and Rose Oil to nourish, calm, hydrate and promote healthy skin. The texture of the formula is like a hybrid cream/balm and it feels nice and cool once applied to my skin. The subtle botanical scent is quite lovely and makes me feel uber revived! The cleanser is housed in a pump bottle and I found that one full pump dispenses a very small amount of product. The pearl-sized amount of cleanser shown in the image below was achieved with two full pumps, which is adequate to cleanse the entire face. Using gentle circular motions, I was able to thoroughly cleanse while hydrate my skin. The formula didn't strip the natural oils of my skin and my skin didn't feel tight nor irritated. My skin was left in a good state of freshness and cleanliness. I would definitely recommend using this cleanser in the morning to help boost hydration and nourishment the skin needs during the day.

The Redness Reducing Balm (A$29.95/50ml tube, A$39.95/85ml glass bottle) is enriched with the goodness of antioxidants which helps to cool, calm and soothe dry skin and visible reduce redness. This balm is ideal for those who have oily or combination skin types. After cleansing and toning my skin, I use a small pea-sized amount of the Redness Reducing Balm is a night time moisturiser to help calm and soothe my skin. The formula is housed in a silicon-feel tube with a pump on one end, so this makes dispensing super easy. The formula has an incredibly soothing botanical and herb-like scent and it also felt quite cool once I gently press a teeny tiny amount onto my face and decolletage. The consistency is quite thin, so I found it very easy to evenly apply the product across my skin. I didn't notice any immediate reduction in redness on my face, however, my skin did feel very relaxed and calm, thanks to the pleasant botanical scent and lush antioxidant ingredients which helped to revive my skin. Overall, I love the hydrating and soothing benefits that the Redness Reducing Balm provides for my skin and the packaging of this balm in a tube makes it a convenient product to bring along in my travel bag!

The Jojoba Company products are all Australian made and owned. The products are free from mineral oils, parabens, artificial fragrances and colours, and contain no animal derivatives. The Jojoba Company products can be purchased online here and at various pharmacies and beauty salons nation-wide.  Please click here for stockists.
