Well, after the ‘scandal’ last month over that face mask Boudoir Privé have pulled out all the stops to rectify their reputation, the most notable change being the transformation into Joliebox
Joliebox is an already established french version of this beauty box fad. The black box looks a lot more classy than the previous pink version I think….
The colour of the ribbon is amazing too (the little things eh)
The main difference I noticed in the box was the lack of card explaining your products in further details and the cost of the product full price. It’s just my lazy side speaking I guess, as this means I now have to good to see if I got my ‘moneys worth’ (I probably wont do that though actually)
The first product I tried was the OPI shatter effect nail varnish in Gold Shatter. I must admit I expected more of a ‘shatter’ effect, I wanted it to be as bold an effect as the Barry M Shatter range but alas it’s way more subtle, I’ve used it over the nail varnish I received in this months GlossyBox
This looks a little dark for me but it’s Jane Iredale Shimmer Powder in Rose Gold. It doesn’t say what it’s powder for but I assume it can be used all over your face, don’t go over bored mind, else you’ll end up looking a bit odd. Maybe a touch for blush?
Some loose Kusmi detox tea. I don’t have a tea strainer but I was going to invest in one anyway, so that’s all gravy. Its maté, green tea and lemon flavour.
New Kid iGloss in Babydoll, it says its non sticky but I’ve found it a bit tacky to be honest, the colour is quite nice though….
It also has a mirror on the side and an extra bright light in the light. It’s a great concept but don’t look directly at the light at I was seeing stars for about 20minutes afterwards.
I assumed the Mitchell and Peach shower gel would be Peach fragrance but it’s a really strong lavender….
Some face cream, I do like getting face creams and have a growing collection.
& finally a little brush that will come in handy as I’m always losing them.
they also said to look under the paper for an extra ‘gift’… I don’t really count leaflets as gifts but hey ho!
Overall it was once again a good box. I still can’t decided which to stay subscribed too. Glossybox seem to have one month bad one good, but when they’re good they’re really good, yet BP/Joliebox has been consistently OK.
