Joliebox – October Beauty Box

I’ve just had a surprise knock at the door – it was a courier bearing the October beauty box from Joliebox! The reason it’s a surprise is because as far as I knew they were only shipping them today, so I wasn’t expecting it until next week. So it’s very much a pleasant surprise!

October Joliebox Beauty Box contents

This month the boxes are back to the standard black with the beauty box contents held inside a little black drawstring bag – I have found so many uses for these little bags: Kindle cover, make up storage, I’ve even currently got one packed with little toiletries in my hospital bag ready for little’s man’s arrival.

This month’s issue of Joliemag features Fleur from fleurdeforce, you get the Menu card telling you a little about each of the products inside the box and there is a card from Lov Organic (one of the featured products) with a code for a free gift and free shipping if you place an order.

The theme of the October beauty box is Pure and Natural; the products have been chosen to help combat whatever Autumn has to throw at you. In this month’s box there are two full-sized products and three sample-sized products. Here’s what I got:

Ritessens Velvet Cleansing Milk – I’ve never heard of this brand before but I’m really looking forward to trying this out. It contains a blend of plant extracts and Moroccan Argan Oil. It smells really good, I’m a sucker for a lovely smelling product! This is one of the full-sized products and is a 125ml tube. I have no idea how much it would normally cost as Google isn’t being very helpful but with 98.7% natural ingredients I can’t imagine it being cheap!

Lov Organic Lov is Beautiful Organic Herbal Tea – I’m a big tea drinker and so is my fiancé; I tend to prefer black teas but he is quite partial to herbal teas. This is a blend of white tea, green tea, green rooibos, mango, pineapple and apricot. The teabags are really cute, they’re made of muslin and there are 6 of them in the box. They smell really yummy! It normally costs £9.45 for 20 teabags so these 6 are worth £2.83.

Balance Me Balancing Face Moisturiser -  I love this brand, I know some people are a little bored of seeing it everywhere as it’s been in a lot of beauty boxes and as cover gifts with magazines recently but for me the more the better! It’s a 10ml tube which normally costs £6.00 and the moisturiser is suitable for normal to combination skin. On the Menu card there is a code to get £5 off the full-size (50ml) product which is a nice bonus.

Moa The Green Balm – another new brand for me to try! This is a multi-purpose balm for chapped, dehydrated skin, perfect timing with the colder weather starting to play havoc with my skin. At a guess I’d say there was no more than 5ml in this dinky little tub making it worth about 99p – full-size is 50ml and costs £9.99. The Menu card has a 20% discount code for this brand too.

JASON Bee Healthier Lip Balm Stick – this is a brand I have heard of through other blogs but not tried for myself. When I first saw the lip balm I thought it was a Burt’s Bees one! It’s packed full of natural ingredients, which are 70% organic, to soothe and protect your lips. This is a full-size 4.5g stick which normally costs £1.99.

I think Joliebox have done well with this month’s box, it’s a good variety of fab products and I’m happy with all of them. I’m particularly pleased with the tea bags, I think it’s nice to get something a little different from make-up or skin care every so often. Joliebox costs £10.00 per month plus shipping. Let me know your thoughts!
