Jolie Box - June 2012 Review

Tuesday, June 26, 2012


The June edition of the UK's Jolie Box (previously Boudoir Prive) was their first anniversary box 
and came specially prepared in two limited edition boxes customized by up and coming designers OCH Studio ad Mzelle Fraise respectfully not only is the box design a one off but this is the first edition with customisations tailored to the customers needs in the form of skin care. 
I truly hope that the customisation element is here to stay don't you?


Much like the Glossy Box I have now tried and tested the contents of the box and can now share my opinion
of each product contained within!


So what was inside my box:

- Elysmabre Lipstick - Sadly the shade I was gifted with is not my cup of tea at all and is a bit too 80's for my personal taste but to the lipsticks credit it did apply well, it wasn't overly gritty and the pigmentation
ranked fairly high too!

- Institut Esthederm UV inCellium Spray - Essentially this spray protects the skin against UV rays and can be used under or on top of make-up and can be used as often as you wish. I use a high factor sun screen that provides protection against UVA and UVB rays so I don't personally have much call for this product.
That being said it is light, non-sticky and does not remove any make-up so some may find this useful.

- L'Occitane Angelica Hydration Cream - A beautiful moisturiser that is light, hydrating and perfect for oily skins as it does not overwhelm or leave behind a tacky residue. I finished the pot and will purchase the full size version at the end of the month when I get paid! Oh and it smells divine too!

- Yon-Ka Pamplemousse Protective and Vitalizing Cream, Normal to Oily Skin - This was the customised element to the box and is a light almost emollient style cream that was easily absorbed and again suited my oily skin wonderfully well. I did find this slightly more intense than the L'Occitane Angelica Hydration Cream 
but I feel that after a few weeks in the sun my skin will be more than happy to drink this in! 

- A mini Jolie Box Nail File - Filed nails well...not really much else I can add!
