So unless you’ve been hiding in a cave, you will know how big the beauty box business has got. The more upmarket samples box as I like to call it, Boudoir Prive announced late last month how they would be joining forces with JolieBox who are the leading beauty box subscription in France. They guaranteed that the boxes would be very similar, capturing the Parisian sophistication. When I found out about the ‘marriage’ I did do some research on JolieBox and was excited to see brands such as Benefit, Essie, By Terry and many more who are associated with JolieBox.
JolieBox has the same concept as Boudoir Prive, you get five luxury beauty samples for £10.00 per month plus p&p, everything else stays the same, but with the first month of JolieBox being a big launch, we have been treated to an extra two products yay!
I received my box this morning and couldn’t wait for it to arrive and boy it doesn’t disappoint. The box is a chic black and is slightly smaller in size to other sample boxes. I quite like this though as it’s very cute and the products seem jammed in which makes things always more exciting! Beautifully packaged with a red ribbon and sticker, I carefully unwrapped the box to find an array of treats.
So what’s inside? We have a OPI gold shatter nail polish, Mitchell and Peach shower wash, New CID Cosmetics I-gloss, Jane Iredale 24-Karat Gold Dust, Yon-Ka Vital Defence face cream and Kusmi Detox tea and a JolieBox concealer brush.
I think with any beauty box when you are trying to cater for a number of people and tastes, it’s hard to have a box where every product is liked by everyone. Usually I like about 2 of the products but with the JolieBox I love four of the products especially.
- OPI Gold Shatter Nail Lacquer- I was obviously very impressed to see a full size bottle of OPI in my Jolie Box, although I’m not the biggest shatter fan, I’ve heard it makes a lovely gold polish on it’s own and the colour is perfect for Christmas.
- New Cid Cosmetics- i-gloss- I don’t know but whenever I see this brand I want to say new kid on the block cosmetics! God knows why! I love this lipgloss that is in this month’s box, one of the main reasons is because it lights up and has a mirror on the packaging. So many times, I have been in a car, or in a dimly lit classroom when I want a little top up of my lipgloss but can’t see what I’m doing, so this lipgloss provides the answer to my worries! I got the shade Babydoll which is a dusky baby pink colour.
- Jane Iredale- 24 Karat Gold Dust- This is probably my favourite product, this a dust which can be used on cheeks, eyes, body and even hair.. how you can use it on your hair I’m not sure. Now in the little information card it says the shade Rose Gold and on the other posts they’ve received Rose Gold. I received the shade Bronze which I think is way more up my street than Rose Gold. It’s a gorgeous shimmery bronze which is just going to be gorgeous on the eyes, it will also look fab on cheeks accompanied with a cheeky bit of fake tan.
- JolieBox Concealer Brush- I love the fact JolieBox have put their own brush in, this concealer brush is so soft and I can’t wait to give it a go and hopefully blend away my dark circles!
I’m not too keen on the shower gel, the tea or the face cream but hey I think four products out of the lot that I love isn’t bad going. I also loved the little message on the card from Therese which explained exactly why every product was chosen for the box, everything was chosen with Christmas parties in mind. I think that’s a lovely touch.
I am very impressed with this month’s JolieBox, and cannot wait to see what else they have up their sleeves in the next following months. Have you subscribed to Boudoir Prive/JolieBox? What did you think of this month’s box?

I hope you all have a great Wednesday afternoon, I’m going to crack on with some present wrapping. Also sorry for posting twice today, but I thought the two posts are very similar so it shouldn’t matter too much! Hope you’re all getting into the festive spirit!
