The Best of Joliebox 2012 - Review

Tuesday, December 18, 2012


I know a few days ago I said that some time would have to pass before I posted about any other
sample boxes well being the dumb ass that I am I forgot that I had indeed bought the Best of Joliebox
earlier in the month because it contained my must have facial treatment - YonKa Pamplemousse
along with other wonderful products.
I must warn you that upon seeing this box you will wonder why all sample boxes can't be this great.


The Best of Joliebox was £20 and was only available to order up until the 16th of December
so it really was a case of if your not fast your last, I will level and say that I only ordered it for the YonKa
Pamplemousse which retails for £35, a £15 saving and a bundle of goodies is not something to be sniffed at.

So what was inside my box?



  • Yonka Pamplemousse Normal to dry skin- Full size.
  • Redken Align 12 - 30ml 
  • Etat Pur Acid Salicylique - 300 mg 
  • Dr Bronners Magic Soap Trio Pillows - Peppermint, Baby Mild & Citrus
  • So Susan Wide Awake Pallet - Full size.
  • Wen Sweet Almond Mint Cleansing Conditioner - 60ml 
  • Balmi Flavoured Lip Balm in Mint - Full size.
  • L'Occitane Creme Radieuse -15ml
  • JolieBox Makeup Brush 
  • Twistband Hair tie in Yellow
  • 2 Lindt Chocolate Bars
By far the Pamplemousse is the product I am most excited about and as my skin is less oily now it is the winter I do imagine this formula opposed to the version for oily skin should be a better bet.
The other stand out products for me are the Balmi Lip Balm, the Dr Bronner Soaps
and the L'Occitane mosituriser both of which I have popped in my travel bag.
The So Susan palette I could do without as it is really cheap looking and unimpressive in pigmentation
and I wasn't a fan of the Wen conditioner the first time around either.

What are you hoping will happen next year in terms of sample boxes?
What theme would you like to see?
