September Jolie Box 2012!

933 JOLIEBOX
Balmi Lip Balm in Blackcurrant Flavour
I Love Coconut Face Mask
Redken Align 12 Protective Straightening Lotion
Twistband Hair Tie
Dr Bragi Bio Marine Exfoliant

What I think – To be honest, I really wasn’t that impressed with this Jolie Box.  Apart from the Lip Balm (which I already have one of and love), everything is very mediocre.  The little sachets of exfoliant seem a little odd – would have been better in a little bottle, and I already have the exact same face mask sachet sitting in my bath room for a year which I haven’t yet used!   The hair bands are interesting as they are apparently kink free, which is fabulous as I always have the trouble of getting kinks when I sleep with my hair up so these will be good to try.  I don’t straighten my hair much so I’m not sure how much use I’ll personally get from the Redken balm but I’ll give it a try!

I usually love Jolie Box’s and this is the first that I have been a little disappointed by, which isn’t bad as I’ve been getting them since January -1 bad box in 9 I can handle.  I’d love to hear what you guys think of it though!

What did you think of this month's Jolie Box?  Did you like the products inside?

  1. I have to say I was a little underwhelmed by this months box, I am so excited to try out the lip balm though - it smells amazing! xxx

  2. I thought it was quite good, but it was my first ever Joliebox so i have nothing to compare it with. The sachets were a bit disappointing. I'm hoping as everyone has said they were a bit disapointed that the next one will be better!

  4. I agree with you, (though I loved my actual box - mine was blue) I wish that the sachets of exfoliant had been in small bottles, it would have made it feel more luxurious. I think packaging of the samples (full size or sample size) makes all the difference in making you feel like the box was worthwhile. The amount of sachets and he hair ties, made it feel like a last minute thrown together box, which is a shame. Though, the more I have looked at my box the more I've grown to like it. The hair ties - although disappointed at first - these might come in handy for getting rid of the kinks and the balmi lip balms, i absolutely adore! I already have the raspberry one and I got the mint one in my box :) xxx

  5. I too was not impressed with their packaging. My concern is once it is opened it is prone to contamination. I prefer products that are in tubes or small bottles that are easy to carry everywhere. I think I will pass on trying out this product.

  7. Katie, you look amazing...I heard that coconut was an amazing healing fruit....certainly the coconut water itself hydrates really well. Great Blog, thanks.

  9. The Joliebox looks a lot better than the Glossybox even though you're dissapointed in this it does have better products I think! I might convert.
