JolieBox October Issue 2012 - Review

Today my JolieBox landed on my doorstep and I thought some may enjoy a little peep inside
and my thoughts on the Pure and Natural box which is aimed at being a natural survival box!
As always it comes with the Joliebox magazine which has Fleur de Force on the front,
very swish indeed!

So what was inside...

Balance Me Balancing Face Moisturiser
I'm a little gutted this is only a sample size as I have had this in full size in the past
and it is a great every day moisturiser that suits most skin types even fellow oily skinned peeps!
I think I will keep this little mini for an upcoming weekend away.

LOV Organic Lov is Beautiful - Tea
I don't drink tea or coffee, flavoured or not so this is not for me
but the ingredient list does sound pretty yummy - Mango, Pineapple and Apricot
and apparently the tea is antioxidant too!

Jason Bee Healthier Lip Balm Stick
I'm always a little too excited when I receive a new lip balm...obsessed yup that's me!
Despite being Aloe and Beeswax it reminds me scent wise of After Eight Mints.
This is quite a dry, coarse balm when applied but it does melt with heat and is fairly moisturising
but no I can't see it replacing my beloved Carmex.

MOA - The Green Balm
I do like multi purpose balms and as this one can be used most places to soothe I can't really fault it.
It is scent free and texture wise is very typical of a balm, yes it is tiny but is a great size for
chucking into your handbag for on the go emergencies etc.

Ristessens Exfoliant
This is loaded with Moroccan Argan oil but does have a strong spicy scent,
I tested a little on my hand and found it to be quite warming so for that reason I am not going to 
use it on my face but when my current body scrub runs out I will use this in its place.

Truthfully I am not blown away with this box but do like that the majority of items and brands
inside are new to me and it is always nice to try something new.

JolieBox* is a monthly subscription service which you can find out more about here - link

  1. I really like the look of the tea, I wish I subbed to this but I scrapped it not long after xmas!

  2. Im not sure weather to sub or stay with glossybox:/

  3. I guess I am not a big fan of any of these monthly subscription beauty boxes. It's nice to try out new things but I usually only end up liking a few products.

  4. I would be happy with just a bag of tea! I'm a tea Monster!

  5. It's great to see Fleur on the front of the mag :) Hmm really in a pickle as to whether to sub to JolieBox. Already sub two other beauty boxes, but JolieBox usually look really good :) xx

  6. The tea sound really nice! But I don't think I'd want it in a beauty box :s

  7. I recieved my box today and love it! Really impressed with this month's xx

  8. Looks like an average box, the scrub and balm sound good though!

  9. I love fleur was cool to see her on the cover. looks like a very interesting box! gigi. food and beauty blogger @

  10. I stopped my beauty sub services - seeing this makes me miss them just a bit! x

  11. I'm a little underwhelmed at the thought of getting 2x balms, but I do love beeswax stuff! As for the tea - I can't wait to try it! I'm not a huge tea drinker myself, but have to kick the ole Caffeine habit, so this might be just the ticket - plus looks quite sweet for a gift if you arent big on tea :)

  12. A little bit hit and miss I thought! Liked the tea though :)
