August 2013 Vellvette bag review, unboxing and photos: Beauty box

I was leaving home yesterday when three beauty boxes turned up - two of them international. So it's taken me a while to get some photographs in quickly and rearrange Blogger schedule. Vellvette has sent a bag this month as well, a more subtle black this time.

Inside were:
Sephora by O.P.I. mini nail polish: I have mixed feelings about this colour; I seem to have about 25-30 similar shades!
Sally Hansen Lip Inflation Extreme in Sheer Pink Berry: I've used it twice now and there is neither plumping nor colour, and milder tingling compared to the famous Sexy Motherpucker, but I suppose these things are different for different people, so there's a caveat before you send me a dozen hate comments. And I hate lip gloss.
SK-II Cleansing Gel: This, for me, is the star of this box. A proper high-end brand. The tube is on the smaller side, so it should be good for two uses or so.
h2o+ Night Cream: A decent-sized pot; should be good for a week or so. I may give it off to my Mum though, because there are too many items in my stash to try now.
Bottom line: Vellvette has actually sent me products made back in 2004 in the past, so I remain deeply disgusted. So, I'm not renewing and I'm sticking with some of the international boxes I've discovered. This will be my last Vellvette box review for a while.
