My August JolieBox arrived on Friday, I did see on their facebook a while ago that they had decided to postpone the August box so that the arrival date didn’t clash with too many people’s holidays. I personally thought that was a bit poop as surely a lot of people would have been away this weekend when it arrived as its a bank holiday?
This month’s themed boxes were designed by Timai Hua, I received the pretty green and pink box entitled Secret Garden, it really is very pretty and I love having special boxes to add to my collection.
We also received the Jolie Magazine which I forgot to photo.
It would appear that JB are now doing a Starbucks esque thing of giving us a free song each month, love this little extra touch! I’ve never heard of the Nodz so this is a great way for me to discover new music, I’ll download this and pop it onto my iPod.
3 x Dr Bronner’s Magic Soap samples size unknown
JolieBox say : These magic all-in-one soaps loved by the A list cleans and revives from head-to-toe
I say : Receiving these reminded me that I have a bottle of this that I received in a previous GlossyBox and still haven’t opened. Not looking good for these either really! I think the problem with these for me is that they baffle me by stating that they can be used for so many things, but don’t actually state what! I have no idea what to do with them.
JolieBox say : A sheer gloss to tint and moisturise chapped lips
I say : This smells very strongly of strawberry, I personally like this scent but overs may find it too overpowering. The packaging is adorable, I love the pop out butterfly on the box! As the description states this is just a tint so don’t expect much colour pay off, it does the job though and leaves my lips feeling great. I haven’t added the sample size as the box says 3g but my little pot looks lost in the box so I’m unsure as to whether or not this is the correct size product for the box.
JolieBox say : A palette of skin enhancing colour tools to give you a warmer glow
I say : Normally I would be annoyed to see two products from the same brand in the same box, but So Susan is just so adorable that I was happy to see more! The packaging of this palette is adorable. The palette contains illuminating cream, highlighting cream and an eyebrow sculptor, though I think these would be better suited to eyeshadows as they have a shimmer running through them.
Phil Smith Dry Shampoo 75ml £2
JolieBox say : This dry shampoo blitzes oily roots and leaves hair feeling fresh and clean
I say : My hair seems to have changed recently and I struggle to find a dry shampoo that works well with it now. I look forward to giving this a good go.
Leather Hair Styling Lace
JolieBox say : A leather lace to create endless updo’s
I say : I’m not the best at hair styling so currently have no idea what to do with this! I love the colour that I received though. I look forward to the tutorials that will soon be appearing on JolieBox’s blog.
Overall a very good box by my standards. Well done JB!
