December Christmas Joliebox (Boudoir Prive)

Hello cupcakes, 

You may already be aware but if not Boudoir Prive have joined together with French Beauty Box Joliebox to create Joliebox UK. It will still cost the same price as Boudoir Prive at £10 + £2.95 P&P per month and you will still receive the same amount of products, the only change really is the name (obviously) and also the box is now black instead of pale pink and has a lift of lid instead of a magnetic one! (Oh and the nice packaging you receive inside is slightly different too! :))

I recently received the December Joliebox and as i do most months, wanted to share with you my beauty box thoughts. 

I really love the packaging, the contents are housed in a black box with pull of lid with a circular 'Joliebox' logo on the top. It is quite a bit smaller in size than the Glossybox or Carmine boxes but i like it. Open it up and you are met with a bright pink ribbon, white tissue paper and white paper packaging. It also includes a card with all the product names and descriptions of whats in the box! 
The products are all nicely packed together and this months includes 5 products plus 2 bonus products (Christmas treat maybe?) 

Onto the goodies..
One of the best things i thing ive ever seen nestled inside a beauty box ever! I am totally late on the crackle/shatter nail polish bandwagon and a little embarrassed to say that this is my first one! However, if i had to chose a colour to crackle with it would have been gold, totally festive and will look equally as good (If not better!) on its own! This is a full size (15ml)  bottle and would set you back £10.50 on its own!  
♥ New CID Cosmetics I-Gloss Lipgloss ♥
New CID are doing the rounds at the minute as they featured a lipstick in their November Carmine box. This is the I-Gloss light up lipgloss in Baby Doll which is a gorgeous pale pink. It has the light and the mirror and is a full size 6.2g lipgloss that would cost £16. 
♥ Yon-Ka Vital Defense ♥
Yon Ka is a brand that i have personally never heard of. This is a small 5ml sample of their anti-age vital defense. It is a creamy white consistency with a nice herbal smell that reminds me of Liz Earle products. I found the Yon-Ka Vital Defense to buy in the UK here for £40 for 50ml making this 5ml sample worth around £5. 
♥ Jane Iredale 24 Karat Gold Dust ♥
Jane Iredale is a brand ive never heard of myself but after a quick google search i have found that it is a mineral cosmetics company based in the US. I have the bronze shade of the 24 Karat Gold Dust shimmer powder and it is a full size 1.8g product. It can be purchased in the UK from here for £11.
♥ Mitchell and Peach Shower Wash♥
I really loved the look of this Mitchell and Peach shower wash. The bottle reminded me of something that you would receive in swish hotels sat beautifully in the bathroom. The bottle looks like glass but is infact sturdy plastic with a screw top lid. It has quite a strong, heavy scent of English Honey, Vitamin E & Wheat Proteins and it is a 100% natural fragrance made in England. This is a 50ml small sample and a full size 250ml bottle retails for £20 making this worth around £4. It will look lovely sat on my bathroom shelf! 
If that wasnt enough!..Bonus Products
♥ Joliebox Concealer Brush ♥
Not much to say about this, other than its a white, short handled concealer brush that has sturdy bristles and will be very welcome amongst my other brushes! A nice added bonus, thank you Joliebox! 
This is a nice little 20g metal pot full of loose green tea flavoured with lemon and lemon grass. Im personally not too keen on green tea (although i have forced myself to drink it in the past!) but i am willing to give this a whirl, especially with a name like 'detox' im sure it will come in handy after Christmas! 

Overall, this box is worth around £45 if you were to buy all the products individually which makes it a good price of just £10 per month plus postage. I know for sure that i will definitely get use out of the OPI, it is the definite winner in this months box for me, along with the New CID lipgloss! 

Fab box all round! Merry Christmas everyone! 

Tomorrow, Christmas Glossybox!
