Beauty Review: October JolieBox


I always love a themed box and this month Joliebox delivered the 'Pure and Natural' box, which aims to be your autumn 'beauty survival kit'.

This month the products arrived in the classic and sleek black box and included two full sized products, a lifestyle product, a best seller and one sample:

balance Me Balancing Face Moisturiser (10ml)This sample sized moisturiser is just lovely. I am a fan of balance Me products and have previously reviewed their radiant skin collection here. This is a new product to me and is a very light and hydrating cream. It also has a nice and fresh scent to it, leaving the skin smellinh as good and moisturised as it feels. JolieBox even offered a £5 off code for the full sized product.

Lov Organic Lov is Beautiful Tea (6 teabags)These organic and herbal teabags were just lovely. The six came packaged in a plastic sleeve tied in a bow with twine. Each came in muslin bags and tasted wonderful, a lovely white and green tea mix. I did find the addition of tea peculiar in a beauty box but it was interesting as a 'lifestyle' product.

JASON Bee Healthier Lip Balm Stick (4.5g)This full sized lip balm is fabulous, I just can't stop using it! It leaves the lips feeling wonderfully smooth and hydrated. You can really feel the goodness of the beeswax and it has a lovely strong peppermint tingle. It has a thick and oily texture, leaving the lips feeling wonderfully creamy. I put all these nice effects down to the expansive array of beneficial ingredients, including cocoa seed butter, beeswax, coconut oil, shea butter, aloe vera leaf gel and peppermint leaf oil.

Moa The Green Balm (sample)This multi-purpose healing balm is brilliant. As I have been quite unwell lately with a bad chest infection I have been using it on my damaged and sore skin (there is only so much coughing you can do!). It goes on quite oily and is perfect for dry or dehydrated skin. I really like it! You also get a 20% any products on thegreenbalm.com website when you use JolieBox exclusive code.

Ritessens Exfoliant (125ml)This facial exfoliant is from the French brand Ritessens. It is a product that contains an array of natural plant extracts and the wonderful Moroccon argan oil. It is a very creamy mixture with small exfoliating beads that left my skin feeling cleansed and moisturised. The product smells delicious and really worked wonders on those dry patches!

Overall, this was a somewhat odd variety, a mix of full and sample sized products. All these products were accompanied by the glossy JolieBox magazine and a variety of money off codes as well as an offer of free shipping and a gift from Lov Organic. JolieBox is a subscription based beauty box offering a selection of branded products monthly for only £10 (plus £2.95 postage and packaging).

Did you get the October edition of the JolieBox? What are your thoughts of the products within?
