Review : July JolieBox

It doesn't seem like five minutes ago that I reviewed the last JolieBox due to the unforeseen delays. I'm pleased to report that JolieBox have changed delivery companies and we received the July boxes on time - yipee!! The theme for the July box is Summer Essentials, despite our unpredictable English weather.



The contents...
ETAT PUR Salicylic Acid 300 15ml (full size) £12.20

JolieBox say : A well-known ingredient in dermatology, Salicylic Acid is very powerful and effective on acne-prone, blemished skin.

I say : I was so excited to see this in the box! Quite a few people have suggested that I try Salicylic Acid for my acne but I haven't gotten around to purchasing any yet. Glad I didn't now! I assume that my receiving this is down to the beauty profile which shows that it works well when the postage isn't messed up!

We also received a voucher code that entitles us to free delivery and three free samples.

 Jane Iredale Tantasia Self Tanner sample size unknown.

JolieBox say : A moisturising gradual self tanner for the face and body that provides instant, healthy looking colour.

I say : This seems a little pointless to me. The sample is so small, surely a gradual tanner will need quite a few applications, therefore the sample will probably run out before we see a result? There may be enough for the face but I personally don't want a tanned face and white body. Fake tan scares me.

 Nail Girls mini-polishes from the Medal Collection, inspired by the Olympics sample size unknown.

JolieBox say : Gold, Bronze or Silver, these metallic polishes are sure to get you noticed this summer.

I say : I love that we received two minis instead of one big polish. I'm also really pleased with the colours that I received. I'm not usually a fan of gold nail varnish but this one looks amazing.


JolieBox say : Bursting with natural herbs and botanicals, this single-step cleansing conditioner leaves hair looking and feeling deeply cleansed and nourished at the same time.

I say : I'm very intrigued by this product. It states its a single step conditioner which means that you don't use shampoo. That will feel strange! It smells strongly of mint so I am expecting a tingly scalp when I use this.

Extras...
 JolieBox toe separator, this can go in my box along with all the others that I don't ever use!

RMK Primer - this was an extra special gift as an apology for the mess up with the boxes last month. Everyone received a product, there were a few varieties all of which (correct me if I'm wrong) have been included in previous boxes.

Did you get a JolieBox this month? If so what extra product did you get? Do you feel that they have done enough to make up for the June disaster?

  1. I got the same as you but Taaj as an extra. Love my box! JB are being a little sneaky though as your first order with Etat Pur you get free del and 3 samples anyway! Good for 2nd time orderer's tho ;) x

  2. Not a bad box! I was recently sent some Etat skincare to review! I like the two nail polishes as well.

  3. Hmmm, still not sure that I forgive them for passing on my personal details to a randomer, but am interested in seeing what's in my box as this looks like a good one (self tan aside, I'm far too pale for that) :-) x

    1. I'm still not happy about my details being passed on either, and the fact that they didn't apologise for that.
      The box is great though and I am quite easy to win over! x

    2. Haha me too, I suspect if they apologise and take responsibility instead of the delivery company they might face legal issues if anyone experiences fraud?

      Love the nail polishes in mine, but I'm a sucker for metallics :-) x

    1. The other Etat product sounds great too, likewise I look forward to hearing what you think of it! x

  5. I got the exact same box as you apart from the RMK primer but as this is my first box they effectively hadn't messed anything up for me! I'm keen to try the ETAT PUR Salicylic Acid 300, but I'm not really into fake tan so will prob those products to someone else :) xx

    1. I think the Etat is the wow factor of the box for most people! I'll probably use everything bar the fake tan x

  6. I got a KMS California hairstyling product as an extra. I like how Joliebox acknowledged that last month was a disaster so I won't hold it against them as this box is actually pretty good.
