Hi girls,

sorry for all these beauty box reviews but I just love them and some people like to know what's in them....it's like Christmas 5 times a month, every month!!! Love it!

Anyway today I've received my December Carmine box and decided not to wait and write review straight away. Oh and this first picture is of October box, I forgot to take picture of unopened box and don't want to spoil surprise for those who don't want to know the contents by posting a picture of opened box. In December box I had dark red bow :)

And here are the contents of the box:

  • Japonesque smudger Brush - The perfect tool to give your eyes a kick, this smudge brush provides excellent control for creating a variety of looks and blending all kinds of colour. Sold at Boots.  I've heard good reviews on Japonesque brushes so I'm happy to finally try one. It's dense but still soft enough and will be great for crease. the brush retails for £14.75

  • Pomegranate Creamy Body Wash - Fresh from the orchard, this refreshing body wash is packed with nutrients and organic pomegranate oil. So lather up and breathe in. This body wash comes with a discount card for free Pomegranate Facial Care Travel set worth £12.95 with any purchase of £30 or more. Use code MINEFREE. It is a full size and retails for £8.95
  • KMS CALIFORNIA FREE SHAPE quick blow dry - the ultimate time saver that will leave your hair incredibly smooth from multi-award winning haircare brand KMS California. Simply make this the last product you spritz on before drying to reduce your blowdrying time by up to 50%. Well that sounds interesting, I hate long hair drying. I have very long hair so sometimes it feels like ages! Will try in the evening :) The full sized product has 200ml and retails from £9.10. The sample size bottle has  30ml which values about £1.36

  • Institut Esthederm Time Technology Cream - Don't be deceived, this miracle cream is perfect for skin of all ages. Light reflecting- this Time Technology Cream from Institute Esthederm not only gives your face an instant glow but provides that deep moisturisation that you know your skin will thank you for. I'm not sure I'll be trying this cream as I'm very happy with the one I currently use. The full size has 50ml and retails for £69. The sample size has 10ml which values at around £13.80

  •  MYFACE Cosmetics Blingtone eyeshadow - Just like the name says, this Grazia award winning pot of colour will give your eyes a bit of bling. Try a small dash of powder for subtle look or layer it on for powerful glow. Get £5 off a purchase of £20 or more (incl. free delivery) when you use code carmine5 at myfacecosmetics.co.uk  I have the shade Crystalline Green. The eyeshadow has decent pigmentation, it has this metallic shine and tiny glittery particles. It retails for £9.99 which I don't think I would pay for it :-/ I'd rather buy MAC refill...

Hello :)

It finally arrived! My first Joliebox! I've read that some girls received it on last Friday so I was impatiently expecting it on Saturday but nothing :( It was a looong wait till Monday but it is finally here together with my Boudoir Prive Goodbye box.

Joliebox is a renamed Boudoir Prive and it comes in black sleek box. The box is thinner than Boudoir Prive or GlossyBox's.

Apparently everybody has the same box so my review won't be a surprise :) The box contents are:

  • OPI Gold Shatter - full sized bottle of OPI nail polish is awesome!!! The polish itself costs around £10. I will be trying this one once my nails grow back to the normal length
  • Mitchell and Peach Shower Wash - Shower wash containing natural English honey, Vitamin E and wheat proteins. It smells to me like lavender which I cannot stand so it will either go to my swap box or as a stocking filler :) Full size bottle is 250ml and is sold for £20. The sample size from the box is 50ml which has value of £4.
  • New Cid Cosmetics i-gloss in Baby Doll - Light up lip gloss with mirror for a non-sticky, long-lasting and high-glam shine. well in my opinion it is sticky quite a lot but the light and mirror is pretty cool. The applicatior is brush. This is a full sized lipgloss that retails for £14.40
  • Jane Iredale 24-Karat Gold Dust in Rose Gold - A multi-use shimmer powder in shade Rose Gold to apply to cheeks, eyes, lips, body and even hair. I don't know if this is a full sized product (but probably is), it has1.8g. Full size retails for around £10.90
  • Yon-Ka Vital Defense - Anti-aging prevention, antioxidant and anti-pollution cream to help the skin to preserve its youthfulness. Full size product has 50ml and costs around £40. The sample I got in the box has 5ml which is value around £4

Extras in the box:

  • Kushmi Detox Tea - A delicious blend of Mate, Chinese Green tea and lemon grass full flavoured with lemon. This tea smells divine! I love the rich lemon smell! Tastes after lemon as well, very pleasant taste. Full size tea tin has 125g and costs approximately £13. The tin I've got is 20g, value around £2
  • Joliebox Concealer brush - very nice wide synthetic brush for concealer which I will definitely use. I like to have few different brushes for everything. I have no idea of a retail price

And just to show you the contents of the my Goodbye Boudoir Prive Box (last Boudoir Prive box with the best of product selection)
