JolieBox February 2012


So here it is... the long overdue JolieBox February post.  To cut a long story short, the box didn't arrive when everyone else's did so I emailed them and they advised for me to allow a week.  When it still didn't arrive they issued a replacement that arrived two days later.  One thing I can say about JolieBox's customer services is each time I received a reply within a couple of hours and felt that they resolved the problem quickly. 
So... let's get onto the products...

Jane Iredale Just Kissed Lip & Cheek Stain in Forever Pink. The card says...  An all-natural, multi-purpose stain that adjusts its colour to your mood and temperature.  I think that this product smells AMAZING!  It smells just like jelly beans.  The stain is pretty subtle and makes my lips just a little bit of a coral colour and really well moisturised.  I'd be interested to try more products from this brand.

Lavera Basis Sensitive Organic Hand Cream. The card says... An organic hand cream with shea butter and almond extract.  I've tested this product out for the past few days and the biggest plus point for me is the fact that it is non-greasey, it just sinks right into your skin leaving your hands smooth.  The scent is really uplifting and fresh. 

Macadamia Deep Repair Masque - full size.   The card says... The ultra-conditioning hair masque will rebuild damaged hair for improved shine and elasticity.  I'm looking forward to trying this out and might try and spread it into two uses since my hair is not too long.

Kimia Rejuvenating Facial System.  The card says... This facial oil and hydra-activator will nourish and heal the skin.  I have to be honest.. I was a little disappointed to see this in the box as I already have received this sample from one of the beauty boxes (I can't think which one) I know this directly isn't JolieBox's fault but i'm starting to see the same brands pop up again and again which is a shame.  I'm sure this product is as lovely as it sounds... I shall let you know !

Taaj Himalaya Miceller Water  The card says... An antioxidant and tonic make-up remover that will revitalise and purify skin.  I have to admit that I don't often use a make-up remover... I'm guilty of using the make up wipes which I know from my beauty training doesn't remove ALL traces of make-up but they're quick and convienent... so I'm welcoming the chance to try something that will hopefully stop me using the naughty wipes!!

Overall I have to say I was quite disappointed with this months box.  I always remind myself that we shouldn't expect full sized products because afterall - they are a bonus and not what the boxes are advertised as but I felt that this box felt a little... empty.  I think my disappointment was also because they didnt release a January JolieBox so I had high hopes that this months box would be amazing PLUS the fact that my box did not arrive when everyone else did.

That being said, I will stay subscribed to JolieBox - this is only their second box since they merged with Boudior Prive so I should imagine it will take a little while to get into the swing of things.
