Jolie Box: March Edition

Put a Spring in Your Step..


Yardley Body Wash   (200ml)- £5.99

Yawn, another body wash. This is getting a touch silly now. I received the Lavender scent which is really overpowering and not pleasant. I won’t be using it anyway due to the SLS.

Davines Moisturising Balm (75ml) – £17.40 for 150ml

This is the only product I am really excited to see. It was in Glossy Box a few months ago but unfortunately not mine and no one would swap with me, yes you, I am looking at you! This balm which feels more like a cream is 98% natural and is multi purpose, smells pleasant and I can’t wait to try it.

Eyeko Skinny Eyeliner – £9.50

We have received a few Eyeko products recently and I am a bit over the brand. I received plum, luckily this is a colour I don’t own ( I had 3 already!) It’s a lovely darkish plum, not sure how much wear I will get out of it though.

LCN Nail Polish (8ml) – £5.50

I have never heard of this brand and when I saw some spoilers before receiving my box I was excited to try it out but now it’s here I am not so happy. I got a white polish with a iridescent tone. I just don’t really like iridescent polishes, a white polish I would have tried. I have come to realise that I will never like a polish sent out to me (via any box), bad luck or are they just sending out crappy colours?

Bonus: Jolie Box branded makeup mirror

This is OK as an extra, bit cheapy and I did think it was the 5th product but seems there are only 4 this month.
Jolie Box said they were sending out full size products this month, yippee and I took that as 5 products but there are only 4. Don’t get me wrong I am appreciative of the full sizes but I think they let us believe we would get 5. I am sorely disappointed this month. I always really like the products we receive and last month was by far my favourite but where are the niche brands? I would have preferred their usual standard samples with exciting new brands to try.  I would go as far as to say this is the worst box I have received. Thank god for the Davines Balm! I think lets forget this month and roll on to the next..What are your thoughts?

      Not sure where to use it first! Katie said it's done wonders on her hair, might try that later x

    I totally agree with your review. I got a peach nail polish and LOVE it, and I think I'd love yours too actually…personal taste haha. But I think the balm (which I'm not all that excited about…but I'll keep my mouth shut until I try it) saves me thinking I wasted a tenner!

    I just started following – lovely blog. 🙂 x

      Thank you 🙂 I'm just not all that keen on iridescent polishes. Will give it a go though. Can't love every month I guess x

    I got the exact same box as you. I think if the eyeliner was in a different colour (I already own this one) and the nail varnish a different colour I would have been happier with it x

      It's lucky I got a colour I don't already own! Luck of the draw I guess. Roll on next month xx
