My Joliebox arrived last night, the theme of this months box is Pure and Natural.
Back to the black box this month.
The bag inside the box was really full this month and it is nice to receive two full size products. However......
Balance Me Balancing Face Moisturiser
10ml sample size, 50ml retails for £24 on their website making the sample worth £4.80.
I was so disappointed to see a Balance Me product in the box, I have had so many products from this brand...
Facewash as a freebie in Glamour Magazine - here
Eye Cream in Lux Box - here
Hand Cream in She Said Beauty - here
I have also had the body wash, lip salve and lip balm!
LOV Organic Herbal Tea Bags
The box contains 6 teabags containing a mix of white and green tea.
100g of this loose tea costs £10.70 on their website
20 teabags retail for £8.75 making the 6 bags worth £2.63
Personally I don't like receiving teabags in my beauty boxes! It would have been nice as a little extra but I don't think it fits under the definition of a beauty sample?!
You can use the code JOLIELOV for free UK shipping and a free miniature pack of teabags.
JASON Bee Healthier Lip Balm Stick
The first full size product in the box, this retails for £2.49 here.
This smells nice as it contains peppermint leaf oil and it feels quite moisturing but I have so many lip balms to use up that this will probably get chucked in a drawer somewhere waiting to be used up.
MOA The Green Balm
Sample size but doesn't say how much the tub contains.
Again a product that I have had twice before in beauty boxes! I received it in one of my Lux boxes and in a Latest in Beauty box.
I haven't used both of the other samples yet!
The second full size product, I can't find any websites that sell this in the UK or find the price anywhere on the internet!
This is the best product in the box, although I am being careful not to try too many new products on my face at the moment as a lot of products are breaking me out. As the tube is sealed I will stash this until my skin is behaving!
Overall I am not impressed at all with this box, Joliebox have been my favourite subscription box for months now and the only box I have on subscription now. This is the first box that I have been disappointed with, I want to discover new products that is why I subscribe! I do not want to receive products that have been in other beauty boxes or given away as freebies with magazines.
Joliebox have always been the box that don't have the same brands that have been featured in other boxes so maybe that is why I am so disappointed in this box. I hope next months is much better or that might well be the end of subscription boxes for me......
Did you get this box? What did you think?
