Joliebox – December Beauty Box

The December beauty box from Joliebox arrived yesterday and it’s much better than last month’s box. I am a happy Joliebox subscriber once again!

The December Joliebox beauty box has a Party theme – although I think the theme should have been Spain, you’ll understand why in a minute. This month the design of both the box and the little drawstring bag has changed; it has a white and gold design instead of the usual black. The Menu card tells you what’s in your box and this month’s issue of Joliemag features Fiona Leahy.

There are seven products (or eight if you count the duplicates separately) in this month’s box, plus some bonus Lindt chocolates, yummy!

Color Club “Put A Pin In It” Nail Polish – This is one of two shades that were exclusively designed for Joliebox/Birchbox members. Put A Pin In It is a frosty rose gold shade and looks very pretty.

Natural Honey Body Milk – I’ve never heard of this brand before, the language on the bottle is Spanish so that’ll explain why! It smells nice, like shea butter, and I get through body lotions like there’s no tomorrow so I’'ll make good use of this.

Bella Pierre Shimmer Powder “Antiqa” – This is a dark purple-brown shade and is super shimmery. I think it will work really well with my green eyes and will create quite a dramatic look.

I Love… Cosmetics Shimmer and Shine Lipgloss – There’s always one product in a beauty box that doesn’t impress and this is it. Pale pink and smelling of sweets, I’ll probably give this to my 3 year old step-daughter.

Olay Regenerist Skin Cream -  I did think this is a bit random as Olay is such a well-known brand, why do they need to put their product in a beauty box?! And it appears to be a Spanish version. I don’t mind, I like moisturisers!

Doctor Duve Hand and Decollete Cream -  You get two sachets of this cream; one for your hands and one for your decollete perhaps? With the freezing cold weather these are perfect for my poor dry chapped hands.

Agua de Colonia Concentrada Alvarez Gomez – More Spanish stuff! It’s a really sweet, citrus fragrance. I quite like it, though not as a perfume. I might sprinkle it on my duvet to make my bedroom smell sweet.

I think it’s quite a good mix this month and (almost) back to Joliebox’s usual standards. I’m really pleased with the Bella Pierre Shimmer Powder and the Color Club Nail Polish.

Joliebox costs £10.00 per month plus shipping and they have now introduced a referral scheme so if you fancy trying it out please feel free to use my referal link

What do you think of this month’s box?



  1. I wasn't pleased so cancelled! Beauty boxes just don't excite me anymore. Glad you liked it though :) x

    1. I feel the same, i'd rather save it & spend £120 at the end of the year on something i really want

    2. Ahh that's a shame! Though that is a good idea about saving the money as £120 is a lot! xx

  2. Is it wrong that my favourite thing in that box is the chocolate!? #oink :)

  3. Not too bad a box - I dont really like getting sachets and perfume samples but I dont mind if their extra.

    1. If I get too many sachets it's annoying, one or two I don't mind xx

  4. It was better than last month...only just x

  5. Great review! I get glossybox and have been considering this too!

    Just found your blog, new follower!

    Looking forward to seeing your January Joliebox ;) xx
