Joliebox: June Edition

Friday, 6 July 2012

I feel like I've waited an eternity for this box and it's somewhat true! This is my first Joliebox and after reading such great reviews on them...I decided that this was the beauty box for me! Joliebox have had some problems with the delivery of their June boxes so I only received mine this morning (it's July now...just FYI). But I'm going to do a separate post on my thoughts on the 'beauty box' phenomenon! Please don't read any further if you don't want any spoilers because I'd hate to ruin it for you if you haven't received yours yet!

The first thing I noticed about the box was that it's a lot smaller than I thought it would be, but I guess that isn't at all a bad thing. The design of the box is so pretty! I did prefer this one to the other orange one they did and the little drawstring bag inside will come in so useful!

 Elysambre Lipstick
If I'm quite honest, I'm not sure if I would like to use this as a lipstick. It's a muddy brown colour with what looks like subtle shimmer in it. I'll give it a go anyway but it's not a standout item to me.

 Institut Esthederm UV inCellium Spray
This looks promising! It says it's 'a pre-tanning treatment which will boost skin's natural defences and ensure a long-lasting tan'. I'm sure once Mr Sun decides to put his hat on again, I'll be sure to try this out!
 L'Occitane Angelica Hydration Cream
I think this is the most exciting item in the box! I've always wanted to try L'Occitane skincare products. It's a really nice sample size so hopefully I can work it into my skincare routine.
Yon-Ka Pamplemousse Protective and Vitalizing Cream
Now this was supposed to be the customised product if you managed to fill in your beauty profile online but due to the labelling issues that delayed the delivery of our boxes, I got a different customised item. This is for Normal to Oily skin BUT recently I've been feeling like my skin has gotten more oily so maybe I will give this a go and if it doesn't work out, I'm sure MummyTron would welcome it with open arms!

Overall, I'm fairly happy with Joliebox's 1st Anniversary box. There are some really nice skincare items in there and the box design is really cute. My payment has already been processed for July's box so I'm going to wait until that arrives before I make an overall opinion on the Joliebox beauty subscription. I hope they do something special for the subscribers that had to wait a very long time for it to arrive as I got a very bad vibe from the subscribers commenting on Joliebox's Facebook thread.

Joliebox costs £10 per month + £2.95 delivery.

What do you think of this month's box? Did you have to wait a long time for it too?




  1. Looks really nice. When I first got glossybox I was like "omg. It's so small." everything looks way bigger online. Cnt believe you didn't get your June box until now though, not good! X

    1. I know :( hopefully that means I won't have to wait too long for the next one :)


  2. my glossybox was late too, but joliebox products seem to be much bigger and better! cant wait to see what you get in your next box, maybe il convert from glossybox...

    1. I'm excited to get my next box but if it's not up to scratch I might unsubscribe and save my pennies :(
