JolieBox UK £10 monthly subscription + £2.95 P&P*

This months JolieBox was created to inject a little flower power and plant based products into your beauty routine. I’m just going to throw this out there and say that this is possibly my favourite JolieBox so far. It may only have 4 items as opposed to the normal 5, but I feel like the good choice of samples and the full size nail varnish thoroughly make up for it. I also wanted to mention how much I enjoy reading the JolieMag. This little 23 page magazine which has been edited by the oh so gorgeous Anna of ViviannaDoesMakeup, excites me just as much as the box of goodies. It’s full of great content, including product reviews, interviews and helpful information. I like to read it in the bath as a wind down! This magazine has become a little bonus when receiving your JolieBox each month, and I think it’s a wonderful idea. 

Products included in the box:

Talika Lipocils Expert 2ml – An eyelash growth product with extracts of natural nettle to stimulate the growth of short or frail eyelashes. This sample is quite small, i’m not overly sure how much 2ml of product is going to help stimulate my eyelashes. I’m certainly not expecting to wake up with long fluttering lashes after using it once but i’m intrigued to see if it does in fact do anything at all. I’ve not ever dabbled in eyelash growth serums before, so this is all new for me! 

Essential Care Organic Rose Moisturiser 15ml – Being quite the skincare junky I’m looking forward to trying this moisturiser. It has rehydrating, regenerative and toning benefits of organic rose and aloe juice. It’s also suitable for vegans and they’ve not tested on animals, which I know is an important factor for many of you when making cosmetic choices. After checking out the ingredients, it also appears to be free of any nastiness too. Skincare is always best when it’s kept as natural as possible so this look promising. 

RMK Make up Base 15ml – This makeup base claims to prime the surface of your skin, add moisture with shea butter and provide the perfect fit for foundation. I’m the sort of person who skips on priming before applying my makeup because sometimes I just prefer my face to have as little on it as possible, I always feel like priming just adds another layer, and I can’t say i’ve ever really needed to do it. However, more recently, I have been trying out some different primers, and my eyes have been opened to the world of longer lasting makeup and a smoother, easier foundation application. This looks to be a very good primer, and I’m excited to give this a proper whirl. The cute little bottle will also be perfect for travelling. 

China Glaze Nail Lacquer Wicked Style (full size) – I was so happy to see this nail polish in my JolieBox this month, as China Glaze are one of my favourite nail brands. I find their polishes to be very long-lasting and just of excellent quality. I see them as O.P.I’s main rival in the high end polish stakes. I’m not a massive fan of the pink, as I don’t tend to wear pinks all that often, although that could all change once the sun comes out :) Saying that, pink is always my top choice for a pedicure!

What do you think of this months JolieBox? 

  1. The box looks great this month! Can't wait to get mine, the nail varnish is so good! Defo agree with you about the excitement about getting the magazine too, I love it! xx

  2. Just when I needed a new primer – YAY :) Can't wait for my box to arrive x x

  3. Amy

    I'e never tried Jolie Box, only Glossybox. Its so hard to choose which beauty box to sub too!

  4. Love it, great post. Would love to get these boxes every month :( Oh well.. the colour is lush and yeah, I don't wear bright colours either. Still pretty tho. x

  5. Zara

    That nail polish is so pretty, wish they sold China Glaze where I live!
    Lovely post Zoe :)


  6. Noush

  7. Iny

    Essential is amazing Zoe, as an organic cosmetics addict I know this one is really good and smells amazing! I also love the China Glaze, its one of my favorites next to Essie and OPI! :) Ixx

  8. Iny

    I want that magazine too haha!

  9. So jealous of everyone getting a Joliebox this month! Really liking the sound of the RMK makeup base the more I read about it.


  10. I am so close to subscribing to joliebox. This month's box looks amazing! x

  11. I love the look of this box, I also love your photography!
    I'm thinking of cancelling glossy next month and getting jolie instead to try :)
    PS. Wondering when I can expect an email back about the ad spot my dear :)

  12. Rose.

    the jolie box looks great!

  13. I love the nail varnish! Boxes like this make me wish I subscribed!

  14. Hey Zoe, please could you do a post on recommend primers, I'm the same as you are, always skipping it, it would be really helpful and i trust your opinions :) thank you, Rocky xx

  15. Kirst

    oh, I wish I subbed to beauty boxes, but alas, I don't :( I have to say the Talika Lipocils Expert sounds rather interesting, I've got naturally quite long lashes, but I think it would be nice to try :) ❤

  16. I'm so on the fence about whether or not i should subscribe to another beauty box!

  17. Steph

    The nail polish is gorgeous and it from one of their new collections (electropop) too which makes
    It even better! I hate when they give you full size colours which havnt sold well :) x

  18. Hey there Zoe. First of all I would like to say that I ADORE your blog and YouTube channel :) In fact it even inspired me to start my own blog today. This review makes me want to subscribe to JolieBox (even the name is cute) and I really like the products in this months box they look great…well apart from the eyelash thing serum which I'm actually pretty doubtful about.
    Check out my blog if you get the chance and keep up the good work ♥ Sarah

  19. it's awesome!


  20. Stacey

    That's an interesting selection of products! I have to say, beauty boxes in general just aren't for me – I'd prefer to spend my money on things I actually want but I do miss the little surprises month, despite how disappointing they might have been! I'd be interested in see the JolieMag though – Anna's great!xx

  21. That China Glaze polish is the perfect summer shade! I need it in my collection asap! Looks like you get a lot of good products for only £10 a month, I'm tempted to take the plunge and sign up for a beauty box!


  22. I think that is pretty cool you have an eyelash stimulant to help them grow, let us know what you think of it, when you have used it. :)

    Jess x

  23. I expect you only got a teeny eyelash serum sample as it's so pricey in the shops for just a small tube. Should be pretty potent stuff though- interested to see if it works!
    The retro, real life diary entries of a 90's teen.. and other things

  24. Joliebox never seems to disappoint, they always seem to have great boxes x

  25. that is such a good choice of products. love the nail varnish, china glaze is my fav brand too!

  26. Emily

    This is a great box! Very intrigued about the Talika Lipocils! And the China Glaze is a great add to the box! Cant really decide what I like best Jolie Box or Glossybox! Great review though:)

  27. Rachel

    i'd be interested to hear more about how to find the rmk primer after a while of using it? and maybe some of the other primers you've tried? i'm on the hunt for the perfectprimer as my skin has turned more from dry to oily this past year.. any ideas?! thanks zoe!

  28. Dee

    I've used that eyelash serum 2 years ago! I went through 3 fullsize boxes! Personally it worked for me :3

  29. which is better, glossy box or jolie box?

  30. Some lovely products to get your hands on!

  31. Seeing reviews like this one makes me wish that I was subscribed to these boxes! haha. Definitely something I hope to do in the future!


  32. - B

    I've got exactly the same thing as you, even the nail polish colour. this box was my favourite too, ooh and the Joliemag adds something special to it.

  33. Thanks for your nice review. I was skeptical when I bought xlash from here However, used it twice a day for around 4 weeks and my eyebrows are really full again! The outer corners of my eyebrows had gone and the rest of the brow was quite thin. Oddly, the new hair is darker than it was in my 20s and 30s, I really can't believe the difference. I don't have to fill my brows in with pencil or powder any more.
