I apologise for how late this review is – I blame the fact that I have been spending all of my time with my gorgeous new boyfriend (a good enough excuse I think!) with no time at all to sit down and try out new products. Anyway, this is the Birthday edition of Jolie Box and the box was especially designed by Mzelle Fraise and includes lots of French themed products and favourites!
Yon-ka Pamplemouse Protective and Vitalizing Cream for Normal to Oily Skin – I love that Jolie Box are now starting to personalize their boxes to suit their customers by sending them products that suit their skin type or tone. My skin is admittedly a little crazy and is dry one minute and oily the next, but as it’s now summer and a little warmer, my face is definitely more oily, so I chose to receive this moisturizer for normal to oily skins. This is actually quite a generous sized sample containing 50mls of product so you can use this for a while to start seeing the benefits.
Institut Esthederm Bronz Repair Body Lotion – I am always a little hesitant when it comes to fake tan and bronze enhancing products (being as pale as a ghost) so I haven’t yet used this, but apparently when you apply this you boost your skin’s ability to develop a tan. I’m interested to see if this actually works so when the sun comes out in London I’ll give it a go!
L’Occitane Angelica Hydration Cream – I really love L’Occitane but have never tried their skin care before (only their hand creams) so I’m looking forward to using this. I adore the packaging and the fact that it is packed with essential oils and organic ingredients!
Elysambre Lipstick – This lipstick looks tiny but is actually full size. I received a deep, dark red shade which looks a little daunting and scary in the bullet, but is actually very mature and sensual on the lips.
Jolie Box retails for £10 plus £2.99 p&p and the July box should be hitting your doorsteps soon!
