October Joliebox | Let's talk Organic

Can you believe it's November already? (cliche of the month). I cannot fathom it's only one more pay day until Christmas, that is seriously scary. Any way, end of the month means Joliebox time, I can't wait to share all my lovely jubbly products with you guys :) And how amazing is it to see Fleur on the cover of the JolieMag?!
c/o Joliebox

Jason – Lips Bee Healthier (RRP £1.99): This little lip balm is one of the loveliest things to ever grace my lips. I opened it and instantly thought ‘where are the after eights?’ it smells just like them! So as you can imagine, it had me at hello. It’s filled to the brim with Beeswax, Vitamin E, Green Tea, Aloe Vera Gel, Shea Butter, Almond Oil and Peppermint Oil *takes a breath* phew, that’s a lorra products in one little balm isn’t it? It is so unbelievably moisturizing and feels so much more expensive than it’s teeny tiny price tag. Trust me, you need it.

Ritessens Exfoliating Face Care: As many of you know, when I find a skincare that fits with my problematic skin I don’t like to budge from it. So when I saw this in the box I was a little skeptical. But I think that’s one of the things that I love about the beauty boxes, they push you to try those products you might have been too scared to test or haven’t heard of before. So, I whipped it out the box and gave it a run for it’s money. Being a natural product I knew it would be kind to my crappy skin and it felt so lovely and soft even with the exfoliant beads. It didn’t irritate my skin and there are no heavy fragrances in it, so I think it’s a keeper! Plus it’s a full sized product which is amazing.

Løv Organic Herbal Tea (RRP tin £9.90): This, is frickin’ amazing. Not only is the little sample packaging too cute for words, but it tastes like heaven in a muslim tea bag. It’s an organic blend of white tea, green tea and green rooibos with little bits of peach, apricot, mango and pineapple to make it extra refreshing and scrummy. The texture of the tea is also surprisingly lovely. I find with most fruit teas they can be quite watery, but this was almost syrupy – without being thick and gross. I just can’t get over how fab they are. I got 6 in my sample box, and I’d drink them all at the same time if I could!

MOA Balm (RRP from £4.99): YAY for affordable, 100% natural products. This is so lovely and ticks so many skincare boxes for me. There’s no fragrance, it’s multi-purpose and it’s suitable for sensitive skin. I’ve been using this on my hands, face and elbows and honestly it’s amazing. It’s a little different from a typical moisturizer, coming in a wax formulation. You rub the wax between your fingers and then apply to the needed area. I’m particularly impressed with how great it’s been on my face. I suffer with an oily t-zone and thought my face might hate it a little but it’s been soaking up all the goodness and controlling my oil fabulously! Super impressed.

Soin Parfait Ulitmate BB Cream (RRP£29.90): I haven’t tried this out yet. I must admit I haven’t hopped on the BB cream bandwagon yet. I’m a bit scared of them to be honest. Although this does promise an anti-blemish complexion with anti-ageing care and SPF25 I think it’s probably a bit marvelous. I’m just so attached to my fuller coverage foundation, but I think I should probably just bite the bullet and see where it takes me!

I’m ruddy impressed yet again with Joliebox and how much thought goes into these wonderful boxes. Pretty sure this box was made for me. 

What did you receive in your subscription this month?

Aghhh can't believe you've just reminded me it's only one pay day until christmas. This is beyond scary! must stop buying for myself and start thinking of others! :)

I don't get any beauty boxes hun but I always read reviews, gives me ideas of whats out there that may not be all that popular :)

Great post as per. xx


WonderfulYou said...

I know Hannah, it's so scary isn't it!! I've just gone shopping mental on myself recently eeek.

That's a really good idea :) I must admit I do love the surprise of getting them though :) xx

Kay said...

That looks like a lush box :) I'm a Glossybox girl I have to say, but your Joliebox might just persuade me to jump ship.

WonderfulYou said...

Ah Kay, I used to be a Glossybox girl too but I feel Joliebox are far more consistent! xx

daniella-r said...

I think Joliebox's are a lot better than Glossybox, I've jumped ship :) I really want to try the Soin Parfait Bb cream, would love to know what you think of it when you try it?

Amie Haffenden said...

Wow that lip blam sounds amazing, I may have to pick it up soon :) Will be perfect for the Winter months! xx


Linsay said...

I loved the October box! The tea was so good that I went on to their store and bought the metal jar with a tea strainer! I loved every product. The BB cream was really good but it's super expensive so i'll stick to my Maybelline BB cream I think :P I also LOVED the lip balm!

I'm gutted because i've had to suspend my account for November, spent all my pennies on Christmas presents :(


Tom said...

I wish Joliebox did a male box! I got the male Glossybox but I really didn't like it, the one I got had literally nothing in it that I was interested in. I just thought I could spend the nearly £18 on something full size that I actually liked. Still want to get boxes though... might just have to get the female one and give the stuff I don't want to use to friends.
Enjoyed reading this xx


Katie Frank said...

WonderfulYou said...

WonderfulYou said...

I think I might have to as well Linsay! Oh that's a bit poop :( fingers crossed you can sign up again after xmas!x

WonderfulYou said...

Hi Tom, I agree. I bought one for my boyfriend and I thought it was pretty pants. They had stuff like toothpaste in it which I thought was a bit odd! Maybe try a Joliebox for ladies and see what you think :) x

WonderfulYou said...

It is isn't it Katie :) xx

Caitlin Booth said...

Horray for you Megs! You really got what it takes be more visible and informative as well. One thing I've noticed that you never had a review about one tea which is called tulsi. Are you willing to try provide some review? I'll send you some samples if you like?
