JolieBox UK | May 2012





JolieBox UK £10 monthly subscription + £2.95 P&P*

This months JolieBox was created to inject a little flower power and plant based products into your beauty routine. I'm just going to throw this out there and say that this is possibly my favourite JolieBox so far. It may only have 4 items as opposed to the normal 5, but I feel like the good choice of samples and the full size nail varnish thoroughly make up for it. I also wanted to mention how much I enjoy reading the JolieMag. This little 23 page magazine which has been edited by the oh so gorgeous Anna of ViviannaDoesMakeup, excites me just as much as the box of goodies. It's full of great content, including product reviews, interviews and helpful information. I like to read it in the bath as a wind down! This magazine has become a little bonus when receiving your JolieBox each month, and I think it's a wonderful idea. 

Products included in the box:

Talika Lipocils Expert 2ml - An eyelash growth product with extracts of natural nettle to stimulate the growth of short or frail eyelashes. This sample is quite small, i'm not overly sure how much 2ml of product is going to help stimulate my eyelashes. I'm certainly not expecting to wake up with long fluttering lashes after using it once but i'm intrigued to see if it does in fact do anything at all. I've not ever dabbled in eyelash growth serums before, so this is all new for me! 

Essential Care Organic Rose Moisturiser 15ml - Being quite the skincare junky I'm looking forward to trying this moisturiser. It has rehydrating, regenerative and toning benefits of organic rose and aloe juice. It's also suitable for vegans and they've not tested on animals, which I know is an important factor for many of you when making cosmetic choices. After checking out the ingredients, it also appears to be free of any nastiness too. Skincare is always best when it's kept as natural as possible so this look promising. 

RMK Make up Base 15ml - This makeup base claims to prime the surface of your skin, add moisture with shea butter and provide the perfect fit for foundation. I'm the sort of person who skips on priming before applying my makeup because sometimes I just prefer my face to have as little on it as possible, I always feel like priming just adds another layer, and I can't say i've ever really needed to do it. However, more recently, I have been trying out some different primers, and my eyes have been opened to the world of longer lasting makeup and a smoother, easier foundation application. This looks to be a very good primer, and I'm excited to give this a proper whirl. The cute little bottle will also be perfect for travelling. 

China Glaze Nail Lacquer Wicked Style (full size) - I was so happy to see this nail polish in my JolieBox this month, as China Glaze are one of my favourite nail brands. I find their polishes to be very long-lasting and just of excellent quality. I see them as O.P.I's main rival in the high end polish stakes. I'm not a massive fan of the pink, as I don't tend to wear pinks all that often, although that could all change once the sun comes out :) Saying that, pink is always my top choice for a pedicure!

What do you think of this months JolieBox?

  21. oh, I wish I subbed to beauty boxes, but alas, I don't :( I have to say the Talika Lipocils Expert sounds rather interesting, I've got naturally quite long lashes, but I think it would be nice to try :) ❤

  25. Hey there Zoe. First of all I would like to say that I ADORE your blog and YouTube channel :) In fact it even inspired me to start my own blog today. This review makes me want to subscribe to JolieBox (even the name is cute) and I really like the products in this months box they look great...well apart from the eyelash thing serum which I'm actually pretty doubtful about.
    Check out my blog if you get the chance and keep up the good work ♥ Sarah

  26. That's an interesting selection of products! I have to say, beauty boxes in general just aren't for me - I'd prefer to spend my money on things I actually want but I do miss the little surprises month, despite how disappointing they might have been! I'd be interested in see the JolieMag though - Anna's great!xx

    ReplyDelete
  27. That China Glaze polish is the perfect summer shade! I need it in my collection asap! Looks like you get a lot of good products for only £10 a month, I'm tempted to take the plunge and sign up for a beauty box!

  28. I think that is pretty cool you have an eyelash stimulant to help them grow, let us know what you think of it, when you have used it. :)

  29. I expect you only got a teeny eyelash serum sample as it's so pricey in the shops for just a small tube. Should be pretty potent stuff though- interested to see if it works!

  45. Thanks for your nice review. I was skeptical when I bought xlash from here http://www.xlash.net/. However, used it twice a day for around 4 weeks and my eyebrows are really full again! The outer corners of my eyebrows had gone and the rest of the brow was quite thin. Oddly, the new hair is darker than it was in my 20s and 30s, I really can't believe the difference. I don't have to fill my brows in with pencil or powder any more.
