Joliebox in Bloom.... May Review

This months box is Joliebox in Bloom...

Giving us the opportunity to mix a little flower power and plant-based products - their words not mine!

Arrived as usual in the black Joliebox box with the little bag inside.

Only four products this month BUT one of them is a full size bottle of China Glaze so all is forgiven!

Essential Care Organic Rose Moisturiser, 15ml sample which can be purchased for £7.50 on their website

I quite like rose scented products at the moment and find that they don't irritate my skin so I'm looking forward to trying it out.

I could have either got the eye therapy patch or the lipocils expert and I was lucky to get the lipocils in my box - its an eyelash growth product with extracts of nettle (!) to stimulate the growth of short and frail lashes.  The sample size is 2ml, full size 10ml retails at £27 on their website making the 2ml sample worth £5.40

I have tried this product before, I got a full size tube duty free on the way home from my holidays last year. I never managed to use the whole tube so the 2ml should last for a while. You have to make sure you get right to the base of your lashes with the product, it was a little stingy to the eyes to begin with but I soon get used to it and it stops after a few days use.  I did see quite a different in the length of my lashes, I had to stop using it on my lower lashes as they got really long! I could see the most difference on the little short lashes and the ones that don't seem to grow as much as the others.  Definitely looking forward to using this again.

RMK Make up base 15ml sample. Its £28 for 30ml, I could find it for sale in the UK here. Making the sample worth £14.

I really like this product, it's light and easily absorbed. It contains shea butter to add moisture and my make up looks lovely over the top of it.  I have tried so many primers and I think this is one of my favourites!

Full size China Glaze in Pink Chiffon, retails for £5.95 on amazon. I love pink nail varnish so this is the perfect colour for me. 

I own over 100 nail varnises (shhhh don't tell hubby!) and this is actually my first China Glaze.  I love it!! Its fast drying, non streaky, really glossy and has a great depth of colour.  I will definitely be purchasing more from this brand.

I love this months Joliebox.

Joliebox are now my favourite beauty box, they don't feature duplicate products like the other boxes (please don't let me down on this one JB!). I always use all the products that they send me, sometimes the box is a "grower" and takes a few days for me to like but then I always love everything.

I'm really looking forward to next months birthday box, think they may show Glossybox how its done!
