Joliebox review - June

My Joliebox finally arrived yesterday!  I am really pleased with the contents and I ended up getting the right box for my skin type.  In France, Joliebox are celebrating their first birthday and UK Joliebox was launched six months ago. (formerly Boudoir Prive).  The products are all French this month -




Yon-Ka Pamplemousse Protective and Vitalising Cream - normal/oily skin 50ml.  This is 50ml which is a great size to receive in a beauty box.  Joliebox say "This lightweight facial cream protects the skin from external factors making complexions look hydrated and bright".  Looking forward to testing this one, it smells amazing.

L'Occitane Angelica Hydration Cream 15ml - Joliebox say "A smooth facial cream that reinforces natural skin hydration and leaves skin looking radiant and fresh".  I'm currently using the cleanser and toner in this range so looking forward to complementing it with this moisturiser.

Institut Esthederm UV inCellium Spray 20ml - Joliebox says "A pre-tanning treatment which will boost skin's natural defences and ensure a long lasting tan".  I've heard of this brand but never tried anything - maybe if we eventually get a bit of sun I can test it out.  I've used the Elemis Tan Accelerator before and it definitely enhanced my tan and stopped me getting prickly heat - always a bonus!

Elysambre Lipstick in shade 203 3.5g - a frosted pink.  Took me a while to work out that its got a pull off cap before you twist it up like a normal lipstick.  Seems a nice enough shade but not one I'd chose.  A natural make up product.  Will try it out though.

Finally, a nail file - always useful.

A few money off cards - Free Delivery at the Joliebox shop with code, 30% off at Codage, a french skin care brand and a free L'Occitane cleanser when you buy the full size moisturiser.

Also included is the super informative and cute Joliemag and well as the goodies being packed in a limited edition birthday box.

What are your thoughts?  Did you get this box?  If you did, do you think it was worth the wait?

    1. I love a box where you will use (or at least test out)everything - and I love face creams. Oh WOW bet that is a great feeling! I've just got JB and Amarya and LIB when it takes my fancy. x

  2. I'd quite like to try the Angelica face cream as I'm enjoying using the facial scrub from the range at the moment. x

  3. I got the same, my lipstick was a darker shade though. To be honest there's nothing in it I'm going to use and I found it all too much of a disappointment after the drama, plus they've managed to cock my past few boxes up. I've unsubbed from both jolie and glossy now, still keeping my SheSaidBeauty though. I don't need all the skin stuff now as I'm using the pro-activ system and it's working wonders for me.

    1. oh that's a shame that you won't use anything. My last box took ages to arrive. I'm subbed for the year and only a few boxes in. x

  4. A real French beauty box is indeed a thing of beauty. No one does skin care like French. The Japanese possibly. And you got Institut Esthederm in it! I would love to try that brand.

    I loved the Carmine beauty boxes while they were still available, but don't get anything now. I may reconsider this one.

    P.S. am really enjoying the Laura Mercier body souffle I won too. Thank you again.

    1. I'm really pleased with the contents although we did have to wait over two weeks for it due to labelling and postal issues and their communication wasn't great - they say they are going to sort it out for next month - here's hoping! I've been happy with their previous boxes. Glad you are enjoying it :) x

  5. This looks like a really good box. Glad I didn't get it though as I would have only used the Angelica Cream, which came in the last LIB, and the Yon-ka cream.

    Hope to see some reviews on these! :)
