I don’t know how it happened, but for some bizarre reason I did not get around to reviewing the February Jolie Box (which coincidentally happened to be one of my upmost favourite beauty boxes I’ve ever received!). I decided to do a joint review on both the most recent March Jolie Box and the Feb box in one post here today!
Firstly I want to comment on how much I love the little drawstring bag that the products now come packaged in. This bag comes in so handy when travelling or staying round people’s houses and makes much less mess and waste than the frilly paper packaging. Big thumbs up from me!
March Box 2012 –
This box is all about Spring products and just by looking at the products, they are all quite colourful and definitely get you in the mood for Summer. This is also the first ever Jolie Box to contain all full size products, so you are getting a lot for your money here.
I must admit I was a little disappointed when I opened this box and saw that there were two products which had previously been in another beauty box – but the Eyeko Skinny Eyeliner is in a different shade (a mauvey brown) and the Davines Balm will make either a nice back up or gift!
The Yardley English Lavender Shower Gel would be lovely if my skin wasn’t so sensitive (I can’t use any shower gel apart from Fem Fresh or Ahava’s Sensitive creams).
I love the little mirror in this box – it’s the perfect size and weight to carry around and isn’t too bulky or heavy. The LCN Nail Polish is also pretty but I find it hard to get away with white nail varnish (my Mum always comments about how it looks like tipex) but after trying this, it’s actually really pretty. It looks lovely over other nail polishes (I’ve been wearing it over Orly’s ‘Jealous Much..?’ and it looks fab!
I absolutely adore 4 out of the 5 products in this box and would happily buy full size versions of each (this is a first!). This beauty box was perfect in my opinion, couldn’t have been happier with it!
The Taaj Himalaya Micellar Water is AMAZING and removes makeup incredibly well and smells delicious (like cola bottles I think). I have been using this instead of my Bioderma recently and I just love it.
The Macadamia Deep Repair Masque is also incredible and makes my hair SO soft. I got about four uses out of the sample pouch and am going to buy a full size pot very soon.
The Lavera Hand Cream is lovely and travels around in my backpack so my hands are kept soft and hydrated all day, and the Jane Iredale Lip & Cheek Stain is just a lovely product which adjusts its colour to suit your skin tone. When I wear this is goes a subtle neon pink which I ADORE. I will definitely be buying a full size of this too!
I have not yet used the Kimia skincare oils and probably won’t because I don’t like using sample skincare products, so I will give this away to someone!
Are you subscribed to Jolie Box? What did you think of the last two boxes?
P.S – Does anyone know where I can buy a full size of the Macadamia Masque at a reasonable price!? That’d be really helpful!
