YAY! I love beauty box arrivals, I do! This arrived yesterday in the form of a little red card inviting me to the delivery office...I hate that so much. So I picked it up today.
This is JolieBox's first ever full-size-only box! & here are my opinions...
Now this is a brand I recognise but would never purchase as I don't ever see it advertised in magazines I buy, on websites I visit etc so I don't think it's a product aimed for me. It retails at around around £4 which isn't bad. I am absolutely distraught (yes, really) however, as the one of three scents that I happened to get by unfortunate chance is lavender which I despise! I don't think I'll ever use it unless I become very poor and smelly.
I am slightly excited to try this. It can be used as a facial cleanser, a body conditioner or a hair conditioner. I've never been too enticed by these multi-purpose products as I wonder how they can be good for every use...so I'll give this freebie a chance. I think it's around the £10-15 mark in stores, so it's paid for the box.
I saw this and was gutted as it was in a GlossyBox not long ago (Jan box?), and I wasn't that impressed with it. I received the colour everybody complained about too: powder pink. I'll give it a go, why not.
Also, I'm a tad baffled. Above is it next to the other one I own which I have used twice so am pretty 99.9% sure I haven't sharpened. Not even one sharpening session would reduce the size by that much! Dodgy length difference, hmmm! Both claim to be 8g...HMMM.
I adore this colour! It's a peach but it is almost duochrome with a pink/magenta shimmer to it. LOVE. I can't wait to use it! It's in the colour 'Free Spirit' and costs £5.50.
& this is an extra. It's a cheaply designed compact mirror that feels very flimsy. I have spent £1 on mirrors better quality than this. However, I feel that with four full size products, this is an unnecessary nice treat.
JolieBox have now introduced JolieMag. I haven't read it yet but it looks pretty perfect to me. Mainly makeup and a bit of fashion. A couple of interviews etc. This is mainly what I want when I buy 'More' mag, yet I always have to pay for some celeb news that really doesn't interest me, so this should be a good read for me!
Overall, this box hasn't really excited me like last month's box did. The only product I'm a bit eeeeeeee about is the nail polish. I'm gutted about the eyeliner, and the £4 soap isn't wow, is it? & the mirror...
So, although there are more minusses than plusses in my opinion, I still think it was a good box, with good variety, that I was happy to spend a tenner on.
What do you think? xxx
