JolieBox December 2011: Christmas Edition

 This post is long over due but with Christmas preparations, New Year and work I haven’t really had too much time to photograph and blog about much. However I have had a little time to play some of the content of this box.

Boudoir Prive has now joined forces with JolieBox which is the leading beauty box in France and has now become JolieBox. They now have a new smaller box which I always think is better then big boxes as it always seems to come fuller making it all more exciting. The colour scheme has changed to from the pink and black which was quite similar to the Glossy Box to a black and white far more sleek looking box!

 OPI Gold Shatter Nail Polish
Mitchell and Peach Shower Gel
New CID Cosmetic i-gloss
Jane Iredale 24 Karat Gold Dust
Yon-Ka Vital Defense
Kusmi Detox Tea
JolieBox Concealer Brush

 I think that this box has some fabulous products inside but a few that I am not so keen on.

I will start with the products I am not as keen on, I have seen tea included in a few beauty boxes and I just don’t understand it, realistically I won’t ever drink this tea. I’m also not too keen on the Vital Defense by Yon Ka it isn’t really aimed at my age and most of all the packaging is rather horrible making me completely not attracted to it! The last product I don’t think I will get much use out of is the Jane Iredale 24 Karat Gold Dust, I don’t really like lose pigments and this one seems like too much effort with little pay off although I do think it fits in well as this is a Christmas box.

 However all that said there are some great products in this box! As this is a Christmas Box I think the OPI Gold Crackle nail polish fits in perfectly and it is even a full size bottle, although I am not the biggest fan of crackle polish I do love gold glitter! The Mitchell and Peach Shower Wash is something I would never buy myself but it is really nice and perfect for travelling too.

My favourite product is the New CID Cosmetic lip gloss, this is the second New CID product I have received in a beauty box and I have love both products! I really must get myself to a New CID counter, although a little gimmicky the products and colours are great! The last product which I think was a really nice addition, the concealer brush is not like anything I have ever seen in another Beauty Box and it would be lovely to see a few more little brushes pop up in future boxes!

Do I think this box is worth the money?
Completely, there are some great products in here which I am sure I will use a lot, even if there are a few I won’t.

    Hmmm I have subscribed to Glossybox and also Beauty box so if I had'nt gotten those two I would of signed up to Joile.

    The OPI nail shatter is worth the price of the box on it's own!

    Definately another good idea, I have also been looking at –

    Not heard much about this company before!? But they sell REN and I know there are loads of people that like that range.

    Anyways Happy New year.

    Lots of love

    I absolutely loved this, and pending seeing what is in later boxes, I really think this might become my go to box!

    I really liked Boudior Prive before they joined with Jolie Box, I just think the products included are not as good. I really like the OPI Crackle Polish though, very pretty!

    The tea is a bit weird! The 'detox' bit probably means is tastes gross as well. I'm really unsure about all these monthly boxes. I'm tempted to go for one but I'm not sure which one. x

    This really is a gorgeous box, seriously making me consider signing up! xx
