Beauty Review: November JolieBox


JolieBox time again! This November we are graced with six products, some a tad peculiar in a glorified beauty box but I will let you be the judge:

Yardley Royal English Daisy Eau de Toilette (1ml)Yardley London products are classics and I just adore this fragrance. It is so fresh and simple, like the daisy itself. It has a warm feminine scent, lovely and lasting on the skin. Its top notes are of green leaves and apple, the heart of hyacinth and white rose. The base keeps the scent strong with the earthy sandal wood and the prominent musk, this truly is a scent reminiscent of "traditional English gardens".

Jane Iredale Glow Time BB CreamI am not a big fan of BB cream and the miracle coverage they promise. I received this in shade BB5 and although the colour was flawless, I just did not like the application or feel of my skin once it was on! However, a little goes a long way and this sachet could be used for quite a few applications. It also contains SPF25 to protect your skin from the worsening elements!

Dead Sea Spa Magik Gentle Cleansing Facial Wash (25ml)I always love a good facial wash and this foamy cream works wonders. It has a very pleasing fresh scent and left my skin feeling wonderful with the help of all its lovely natural ingredients. It can be used to remove the dirt and grime of the day and also fights against bacteria, ridding you of "blemishes, spots and blackheads".

Topicrem Body Glitter 3D Effect (15ml)This is VERY glittery, a wonderful array of pink and silver sparkles, just perfect for nighttime events, be it clubbing or festive parties. It proves a little bit impractical for day use however, and I am not overly fond of the smell of the product. The shimmery sheen it gives is impressive, intense and lasting.

Marvis Classic Strong Cinnamon and Mint Toothpaste (12ml)This has got to be one of the most interesting products I have ever received in a beauty box and I love it. This cinnamon and mint flavoured, vintage-looking tubed wonder is imported from Italy. These toothpastes with their oh so peculiar flavour,promise to "make brushing your teeth anything but routine". The cinnamon proved shockingly hot as I began to brush, as this subsided, it left my mouth feeling refreshed and clean. These toothpastes contain fluoride so are suitable for using daily. Although delicious, I think I will stick to traditional mint!

Vertumne à Vénus Manucure Absolue - Moisturising & Regenerating Hand Cream (12ml)As you can see in the photographs anticipation got the better of me with this sachet sample. The cream had a refreshing citrus smell, probably from the pomegranate contained within it. It proved very absorbent and left a noticeable feel upon the skin after use. Impressively, it contains 100% natural ingredients, of which 80% are organic. The combination of vitamins, sesame oil and pomegranate extract promises to keep "hands nourished all day".

Overall, I really liked this box, especially with the addition of the Yardley perfume sample and Dead Sea Spa Magik Gentle Cleansing Facial Wash. I would like to see more make up products within JolieBox though. 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 November edition of the JolieBox? What are your thoughts of the products within?
