Today (6th July) I received my June Joliebox. I cancelled all of my beauty boxes when I moved house but I was given a half price code for Joliebox so thought I would sign back up. Well what a drama.....
Beauty boxes, when they first came out, were fun, exciting and practical, we got to test out high end product samples for around £10. I loved knowing that sometime in the month I would have a box full of treats to test out, but I really think things have gone sour for a number of reasons.....
Beauty boxes, including Joliebox and Glossybox started sending out boxes with variations a) In price, and b) In type ie skin type, hair type etc This has anoid many women on the Beauty boxes Facebook pages.....
Also delivery methods seem to be a big problem, using different ways to ship out boxes make the promised delivery dates almost impossible to stick to month after month, again aggravating people.
Quality of products seem to either deteriorate or we have the same brands over and over again.
Where has the fun gone?
Are we expecting to much for to little?
Are we to demanding?
I can see good points on the customers side and also the companies side, so I have decided to cancel once again as I just don't find the whole Beauty box experience fun anymore. Anyway I would like to show you what I received in my June Joliebox.....
This month we got either a nicely decorated Joliebox (people picked at random) or an Orange box like me. And the contents....
Yon-Ka PamplemousseProtective and Vitalising Cream for normal to dry skin 50ml.
This is a fab size sample but I have very oily skin so won't be able to use it, it states on Joliebox's Menu that this was customised if you filled out a beauty profile which I did?! This is also a sample from a brand we have had in a previous box.
Leonor Greyl Volumizing shampoo 30ml.
This states this is ideal for thin hair. I have thick hair but I will use the sample, again a very genorous sample but also another brand we have received in a previous box.
L'Occitane Angelica Hydration Cream 15ml.
This little pot looks lovely and I am looking forward to trying it.
Institut Esthederm Bronz Repair Body Lotion 20ml.
Esyambre Makeup Product.
I got a deep red shimmery gloss which I would never use, this is in no way Jolie's fault. I also find the packaging to be very cheap looking, it is a brand I have never heard of, maybe if I received a nail polish or a lipstick I would test it out but I don't use glosses.
And as an extra a nail file.
Overall the sample sizes are fabulous and if I got the correct moisuriser I would be happy with the box, but as I said earlier the Beauty box experience to me is no longer fun for me so it's time to say goodbye :(
What is your view on the whole beauty box craze? Have they run there course?
