I hope you all had a nice weekend and a good start to the week!
For those of you who read my Glossybox Review, you will know that I was wondering which Beauty Box to try out after my Glossybox subscription ran out.
After doing a bit of research and reading lots of lovely blog posts, I decided to go for Joliebox!
Joliebox is a beauty box subscription service. For £10.00 per month (plus postage and packing), you get 4-5 luxury beauty samples sent to you. Joliebox is part of the American Birchbox company. They have a monthly, a 3 month and a yearly subscription option. If you sign up for a year, you get 2 boxes free.
I signed up at the end of September for 3 months and last week I received my first Joliebox. I received the September box (even though we are already in October), but I was really happy about that!
I think it's a great box and I will use all the products I was sent!
The products come in a green and red box. Inside the box there is a little black bag which has the products in it. You also get a monthly magazine that has all kinds beauty tips and product reviews in it. This month there's also an interview with the lovely Sammi from BeautyCrush which I really enjoyed reading!
Here are the products I received:
Balmi Lip Balm
I love this! I was actually on the look out for one of these. Apparently they are sold at Boots but every time I went in there I couldn't find them so I was really excited to get one in my Joliebox! The flavour I got is raspberry. It's very moisturising, tastes great and leaves a nice sheen on the lips. It also contains SPF15.
Twistband Hair Tie
These are hair ties that don't leave kinks in your hair. Again another product I love! It's so annoying when I spend ages straightening my hair, tying it back and ending up with a massive kink in it. I've used these and they work! When you take them out of your hair there's no annoying bumps in it!
Redken Protective Straightening Lotion
I've not tried this yet, but Redken is a brand I love. My hair is naturally curly and I straighten it daily, so I am sure this will come in very handy. It's also quite a generous size (30ml).
I Love Coconut Face Mask
This is a moisturising face mask.
DR Bragi Bio Marine Exfoliant
This is an exfoliant. I got 2 small sachets so I think they will come in very handy for travelling.
I'm very impressed with these products and looking forward to receiving my next Joliebox! I definitely prefer this to Glossybox. I think the Glossybox packaging is really nice, but I was quite often disappointed with the content as I didn't feel it matched the on line profile I filled out when I signed up with them. A lot of the products I received from Glossybox I won't use, but I will definitely be using everything I received in my first Joliebox!
