Heads up, beauty lovers. Violet Grey has unveiled its latest drop, and it's one for the ages.
Meet the Violet Box — no, it's not a hyper-luxe monthly subscription box (although, free idea, VG team), but rather, a mega-kit of top-selling products from the Los Angeles-based beauty retailer. And this year, they've outdone themselves.
Featuring a 50/50 mix of full and travel sizes, the assortment is curated by Violet Grey staffers themselves, so you know it's going to be good. As for what's inside? This year's limited-edition box includes the modern icon, Augustinus Bader Rich Cream, plus tried-and-true gems from brands like Virtue, Chantecaille, and RéVive.
At $250, it's not exactly your run-of-the-mill beauty grab bag of skin and hair goodies. However, with a total value of $687.50 (BTW, a 50 ml of Augustinus cream retails for $265 alone and there's a 30 ml-sized cream in the box), it's a major steal — 64% off retail, to be exact. (Another way to think of it: Pay for a fancy moisturizer, and get eight products for free.)
Whether you splurge on upgrading your own summer beauty routine, or decide to go halfsies with a friend, Violet Grey's set is the rare combination of savvy shopping and the always-essential element of treat yo'self. Something tells us it won't stay in stock for long.
