June 2013 travel Vellvette beauty bag review, unboxing, photos

June 2013 travel edition Vellvette Bag review
Vellvette decided to send out bags this time. I'm all for this; the boxes get squashed in transit every time and are cumbersome. The bags are sturdy and decently-sized and can be used. That's +1 points.
Delivery was on the same day as most people; I wasn't home yesterday and it wasn't their fault the delivery guy got caught in the downpour. Score: 2.

The theme was travel. Not sure where the travel part is applicable in a sampling programme. Aren't all samples travel-worthy anyway? Unless they meant products from around the world, which is international-themed, not travel. No points awarded. Score: 2

What I got:
1. Toni & Guy Frizz Smoothing Curl Shampoo - it says conditioner on the product card, but I got a shampoo. I'd rather have the conditioner.
2. LA Splash Glitter Eyeliner in Pacific Ocean
3. Just Herbs Advanced Pimple Treatment Kit
4. I love... Blueberry and Smoothie shower gel

June 2013 travel edition Vellvette Bag reviewToni & Guy shampoo: Contains both SLS and parabens. Doh! Didn't they send me a non-SLS, non-paraben shampoo last month in the organic box? Besides, who has curls here? And why tell me it's a conditioner and send a shampoo? Don't contradict yourself! Be consistent! Giving it to cousin. Subtracting two points here for wrong product and SLS, so score: 0
I love... Blueberry and Smoothie shower gel: Smells divine. I'll definitely try this out. Made by a Manchester-based firm. Score: +1
LA Splash glitter eyeliner: They sent me the blue as I wanted, though I'm not an over-glitter person especially with eyeliner. Trouble is, it doesn't stay - swiped it off within an hour of application and almost nothing remains. Going into my unwanted items section, swatched once. No points awarded or deducted

Pimple treatment kit: Love the jute bag, but who has pimples here? I get one or two spots around that time of the month, that's all. And I have my trusty BP for it. Giving it to schoolkid in the neighbourhood with the caveat that I'm not responsible even if her face falls off. I specifically told them I didn't have much by way of acne in my questionnaire. Subtracting another point so score: 0

Verdict: Not pleased they sent me a shampoo and wrote conditioner in the card. Hate the dodgy powder and the glitter eyeliner. Hope the bags continue in future, but they pack according to the product card.
EDIT: They sent someone to pick up the shampoo and then sent me the conditioner as a replacement. I was like, you want to pick up a measly "sample" before you give me the replacement?
