Joliebox: July 2012 Edition

Friday, 20 July 2012

Feels like yesterday that everyone was raging at Joliebox for the late delivery of the June box but July's box came as a surprise as I hadn't even had an email telling me the July box had been dispatched. I love surprises like that!

I (somehow) managed to avoid any spoilers as to what was in this month's box as the 'bigger beauty bloggers' always seem to get their's a week or so in advance and I always can't help myself to take a sneaky peek! But this month, I actually 'oooooh-d' when I opened the drawstring bag! Big thumbs up!

So...what did I get this month? (Again, please don't read any further if you don't want any spoilers!)

Etat Pur Biomimetic Skincare B-09 Express Purifying Mask
'This intensive mask purifies the skin by absorbing toxins, impurities and excess sebum in the skin'
I was literally thinking this morning that I wanted to try using face masks in with my skincare routine and this really hasn't come at a better time. Can't wait to try it!

Jane Iredale  Tantasia Self Tanner
'A moisturising gradual self-tanner for the face and body that provides instant, healthy looking colour'
First off, I don't use self-tan so this product is pretty void for me but even if I did, it's the tiniest sample ever! Not quite sure how long it'd last you.

Nailgirls Two mini-polishes from the Medal Collection, inspired by the Olympics
'Gold, Bronze or Silver, these metallic polishes are sure to get you noticed this summer'
I'm so glad that Joliebox included 2 mini polishes rather than one big one. Who actually manages to get through an entire bottle? I got gold and bronze, can't go wrong with nail polish!

Wen by Caz Dean Sweet Almond and Mint Cleansing Conditioner
'Bursting with natural herbs and botanicals, this single-step cleansing conditioner leaves hair looking and feeling deeply cleansed and nourished at the same time'
Okay, this was actually the product that made me smile the most. I'm a bit obsessed with haircare products and if you don't know by know, I love mint so this is right up my street! Not sure how I feel about the 'single-step' idea but I'm willing to give it a go!

KMS California Free Shape Hot Flex Spray
So as an apology from Joliebox for the late delivery of last months box, they included a little something extra. I'm glad they've taken the time and effort to address the situation and trying to make up for it by throwing in something extra so...greatly appreciated at this end!

I was considering cancelling my subscription after this month but now that I have this month's box, I'm kind of re-considering. It's actually a pretty brilliant box and I'm quite excited to give the products a try. You have a hold of me this time Joliebox! Keep it up!

What did you get in this month's box?




  1. I was pretty pleased with the July box too! And i totally agree, the hair conditioner really won me over too! Minty almond, you really can't go wrong with that. I don't think there was any need for the 2ml sample of tan? It wouldn't cover someones hand! I got a couple of items different you can check my review out if you like ..

    1. Oooh, thanks for the link! I'll check it out now :)


  2. The Joliebox looks really good! I'm really interested in all the products you got and might have to go looking for some (the mask in particular!!) it looks way better than what I've been receiving in my glossyboxes recently, I really haven't been all that impressed with them, I think I'll have to switch my subscription! :)

    1. I was a GlossyBox subscriber last year (but cancelled it) and I just recently subscribed to Joliebox, I like the selection of products in Joliebox more than GlossyBox :)
