Joliebox September 2012 LFW Edition

 It’s that time of the month again and I have received Septembers edition of the Joliebox. For starters lets just touch on the box, how horrible is it? I just hate the colours and think it looks very childish (or like a clown outfit), very different to my opinion on this months Glossy Box. But lets move on to the important things….

 This months box is called ‘Runway Ready’ and is inspired by London Fashion week. Inside there are  six items to get you through the post-summer blues.

Balmi Lip Balm
This product really did excite me as I never got the EOS lipbalm which is of a similar shape, I like that this is quite an unusual product and lipbalms always come in hands. It is the full size product which usually retails for £5 so although it isn’t a highend sample I’m still quite happy with it

I love…Face Mask
I’ve been trying to get through the face mask samples which I have at the moment but I’m not sure this is one that I will use. I also feel the I love… has a very artificial scent that I really don’t want from a Face Mask. Plus I love… product are very inexpensive I doubt this retail for anything more than a pound.

Redken Align 12 protective straightening Lotion
This is suppose to be a top selling product and Redkin is a great brand too however this is a Straightening product but as I never straighten my hair I doubt I will get any use of this!(also wasn’t this in another beauty box?)

Twistband Hair Tie
These are not my usually cup of tea but I really like these! They allow you to tie up your hair without getting any kinks or bumps afterwards. Sadly yellow really isn’t my colour but I will carry the green one around with me!

Dr Bragi Bio Marine Exfoliant
Luckily this is a little added extra cause you don’t get very much but then again it is a high end brand.

What excited me the most this month is the Skin3 £25 voucher but I don’t think this would benefit everyone. The salon is based in Swiss Cottage, London which isn’t far at all from me but for subscribers that live outside of London they unlikely to benefit from this. There is also a Boohoo discount code which is always nice!

 I’ve really been enjoying receiving beauty boxes recently but I would like to clearly state that I get sent both the Jolie Box and Glossy Box. So the big question is would I spend my own money on it? For me at this moment in time I would have to say no, I have way too many beauty products and really don’t need any more. However that said I think if I wasn’t a beauty blogger or simply didn’t have that many products I would subscribe. At round £10 a month I think they are reasonably as a treat but they aren’t a  necessity.

I do like the variety of this box especially as there is even an experience voucher included!

    I really don't understand the random hair ties that have been in the boxes. I'd prefer something that was beauty related.

    I didn't even get the voucher or discount code 🙁 I liked the balmi but overall I don't really think the box is worth the money

    You are so lucky you get these sent to you free – and thank you for being honest about it! I am cancelling; I found it easy to get into the hype but once you take a step back you realise what a waste it is.

    Great blog 🙂
