June Joliebox

Bon Anniversaire Joliebox!

Joliebox celebrated it's 1st Birthday in June, so I was very excited to receive mine. This box promised to be packed with a selection of their favourite French skincare products. Due to the shipping troubles, I received mine a little late so better late than never, here's what I received.

1. Yon-Ka Pamplemousse Protective and Vitalizing Cream for Normal to Oily Skin.
I love the fact that this is the first 'customised' box which meant that I recieved this product which was specifically for my oily skin type. This is a really rich moisturiser which doesn't take long to sink into the skin. It has a light citrus scent and feels lovely once applied. I am very keen to see how this works over a period of time, given it is a very generous 50ml I will have a chance to try it out properly.

2. Elysambre Long Eyelashes Mascara.
Although not the colour I would have chosen - a dark plum - I tried out this mascara and didn't have any major issues with it. It is a smaller brush than I usually use - I like them thick - but it applied well and separated my lashes nicely. Once applied it was hard to tell it wasn't black so I can definately get away with this for daily wear. It was also really easy to remove with a gentle eye makeup remover. This is a full size product and one which I shall certainly use up.

3. L'Occitane Angelica Hydration Cream.
Another facial cream, this time for hydration. It feels deliciously indulgent on the skin - a real treat and has a gorgeous fresh scent. If this is as good as it seems this could be the one product from this box I would definately re purchase.

4. I Love My JolieNails Nail File.
An additional non offensive product added in as a little space filler, not exactly luxury but hey, nail files get used.

5. Institut Esthederm Bronz Repair Body Lotion.
The final product is a tanning cream designed for use before and after tanning to help repair sun damaged skin and give a healthy glow. It is the one product I've not used as sadly I have no plans for a summer holiday this year *sob* but I do plan on giving this to my Mum who is returning from her holiday this week, to help moisturise and prolong her tan.

With 3 products which I know I will undoubtedly use up, I am very happy with this month's box.

What did you think of June's Joliebox? What is your favourite Beauty Box?



  1. I got the wrong YonKa product because of the shipping troubles but have arranged a swap with someone so am awaiting mine! LOVING the L'Occitane cream. Lovely review! X

    1. Shame about the YonKa but its great you've found someone to swap with.
      Thank you x

  2. I've avoided signing up for any beauty boxes in case the products were a total waste with them being a random pick, tempted now though that they are customising them :) x

    1. I agree, I think customising them will attract a lot more customers! x
