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!
