Joliebox Review - November


The courier just arrived with my Joliebox.  I'd seen a few spoilers for the box and I think it is the most disappointing one yet!

Joliebox say "This month's box is dedicated to all you busy city girls.  We know how hard it is to juggle everything - from friends to work to the upcoming Christmas buzz.  In honour of our newly expanded Joliebox family, we have picked our favourite up-and-coming brands recommended by each of our headquarters".

France - Topicrem Body Glitter 3-D Effect 15ml - this has sparkles in it and will be great for using for Christmas nights out - my favourite item in the box.  Also from France a teeny tiny 2ml sachet of Vav Moisturising & Regenerating Hand Cream.

Italy - Marvis Strong Mint Toothpaste - my tube has a hole in the side (going to email Joliebox to see if they can send another).  Smells super-minty.

USA - Jane Iredale Glow Time BB Cream 2ml sachet - what is it with sachets!  They are ok as extras but not as actual items.  I will try this out though.

UK - arrgh! Dead Sea Magik and Yardley!  A shame Joliebox couldn't have sourced some more original British Brands like Bodhi, Palm&Soul or Elemis.

Dead Sea Magik Gentle Cleansing Wash 25ml - this brand has been done to death in beauty boxes.  I will probably use it though.

Yardley Royal Diamond EDT sample vial - hate Yardley scents.

Did you get the box?  What are your thoughts?

  1. I'm not signed upto any beauty boxes and I wouldn't be impressed if I received this box. Can you send it back for a refund?

    1. It's really not a good one. I've tried a couple of things out so I guess not! x

  2. I think it's DREADFUL. A complete rip-off. I thought last month was bad but this box is worth approx £5.40 :-(

    I've subbed since their very first box (as Boudoir Prive) and I felt very loyal to them. I'm sending this box back for a refund and I'm pretty sure I'm going to end my subscription. (I'm sorry to leave such a negative comment on your lovely blog but I'm really cross about the box and was glad to see an honest review...)

    Best wishes,

    Georgina

    1. I waited in queue to be allowed to get a Boudoir Prive box! It was my favourite. I subbed for the year but I know I won't be re-subscribing. I think the worst box we've ever got! x

  3. This box looks a bit sad :( I'm glad i decided on Amarya as it seems to be the most consistent.

    1. It's dreadful! Amarya is the most consistent - every box is value for money x

    1. I normally love Joliebox (give or take a couple of not so good boxes) only one which has been consistent is Amarya x

  5. oh no, shame about this box :(
    Topicrem and Jane Iredale products are definitely the best ones, but the sachet is gonna be super fussy to use and a lot is gonna get wasted. x

  6. I stopped subscribing because I just didn#t think it was worth it anymore. I'd rather spend that money one buying a product I know will like xx

    1. Definitely the way to go! I subbed for a year with Joliebox but I'll definitely not be re-subbing. x

  7. Such a shame about this box :( I haven't received mine yet, but I'm not looking forward to it. I might stop subscribing too like Glitter Me Pink and save my money for products that I know I want and like xxx

    1. oh fingers crossed you get the slightly better box! Amarya is the only company I know which has a stand alone business and the beauty box is just an added marketing extra for them - they are always good x

  9. I'm not surprised you unsubscribed. That's got to be the worst I've seen yet.
