I had expected this month's JolieBox to arrive on my birthday as it was dispatched a few days before. I was quite excited at the prospect of receiving another present on my birthday and a little disapointed when it didn't arrive. It turns out that it did turn up on my birthday but went to a neighbour which meant that I didn't receive it until the Saturday, hello belated present!
Tropic Skincare Skin Revive 10ml value approx £5.32
JolieBox say : Bursting with vitamins and pure plant actives that help to visibly firm and intensely nourish the skin
I say : The smell of this is very overpowering, due to this I will only be using it once a day, before bed, as oppose to twice a day as suggested. They do say that this product isn't suitable for very oily skin, I do have oily skin but not very oily. I will try this and just hope that it doesn't make me too greasy.
Balance Me Daily Essentials Cleanse and Smooth Face Balm 15ml (full size) £4
JolieBox say : A daily cleanser containing anti-oxidant Arctic Cloudberry and gently polishing oatmeal
I say : This sounds lovely and smells great. I'm not a huge fan of receiving facial cleansers in these boxes as I suffer with acne and changing cleansers can set it off. I will try this but I don't think that I'll get enough use out of this tub to test the product properly.
Pure Fiji Exotic Bath and Body Oil 30ml value approx £3.13
JolieBox say : A multi-tasking nourishing oil that can be used on the body, hair and scalp
I say : This smells divine! It smells like being on holiday, I may just keep it to have a sniff when I feel down! I suffer with dandruff and have one particularly bad batch of dry skin in my fringe so will probably trial this on that area.
Bellapierre Black Mascara 9ml (full size) £19.99
JolieBox say : This long lasting mascara instantly creates thicker and fuller lashes
I say : I love the look of this mascara, Bellapierre is a brand that I'm not familiar with but the packaging makes me want to get to know them! I've not tried this yet but will do a separate review if you would like?
KMS California Freeshape Hot Flex Spray 30ml value approx £1.90
JolieBox say : A protective heat styling spray for hair that lasts until the next wash
I say : I've heard a lot of good things about this so look forward to trying it.
- The total box value is approximately £34.34
- The box contains a good variety of products, all of which will at least be tried, and probably used in full
- Now that Carmine are no more and I have cancelled GlossyBox JolieBox is the only monthly box that I receive. So far I feel that I have made the right choice, the products, the magazine and the little menu telling the story of how to use the products really make JolieBox stand out against their rivals.
