JOLIEBOX - December

I was excited to receive my box this morning.  It's a compact black box (in the style of Glossybox) and filled with products (two extras).  I think it's a fab first box.  

It comes with a menu style card - listing what is included but doesn't list the size/price of the full size products.

OPI Gold Shatter Nail Lacquer 15ml - this is a full sized product which retails at £10.50. 

Mitchell and Peach Shower Wash 50ml - retails at £20 for 200ml.  This is a product I've been wanting to try as its free from parabens etc. but have been put off by the price - can't wait to try.  Smells lovely.  It's lightly scented with lavender, violet, ylang ylang and rose.

New CID i-gloss - full size product - Light up Gloss with Mirror in Shade Baby Doll.  Retails at £16.  A wearable pink shade.  As soon as you open the lid the light comes on - there is a mirror on the side of the tube.

Jane Iredale 24-Karat Gold Dust 1.8g - a multi-use shimmer powder in Rose Gold - can be used on eyes, cheeks, body, lips, hair.  Retails at £11.

Yon-Ka Vital Defense 5ml - Anti-Ageing Cream - never heard of this brand but will try the cream out.

Also included is two bonus items:

Kusmi Detox Tea - a blend of maté, Chinese green tea and lemongrass, full flavoured with lemon - love herbal teas so looking forward to trying this out. It comes in a cute little tin.

Joliebox Concealer brush - I don't have a concealer brush so happy to find this as an extra.  

A great box - such great value for money and fab contents. 

p.s. just had a mug of tea and its delicious with a strong taste of lemongrass and no green tea bitterness.  I just need to get a tea strainer rather than using a mini sieve!

I subscribe to all 5 - Joliebox, Amarya, Glossybox, Feel Unique and Carmine (for the moment).  The Amarya one I subscribed to first (for the year) before I realised other boxes existed.  Unfortunately, I can't keep all of the others on due to the cost.  Which one do you think I should give up? I am thinking either Glossybox or Carmine.  Ooh its so difficult to decide x
