JolieBox via EssieButton

One my lovely blogging buddies Estée, also known as Essie Button, held a giveaway with the chance of winning a french Joliebox and i was lucky enough to be one of the winners of said giveaway! I've been desperate to try one of these beauty boxes for ages, but i just can't justify it to myself to part with the money when i'm already on a student budget, so this was a great way to see what all the hype was about. From receiving this i can truly say that i now understand the hype!

I love this box and think it was a great way to ease me into the beauty box world. There was a lovely variety of products and means i can try out some of the famed french skincare. My box contained: Clarins Gloss Prodige in 04 Candy, Lierac Energising Smoothing Cream Early Wrinkle Correction, Natura Leg & Foot Cream with Cocoa Butter, Science et Mer Facial Toner and Science et Mer Makeup Remover for Face and Eyes. I'm really happy with everything in the box and can't wait to test it all out.

The Clarins gloss is a gorgeous dusky pink but is still a gorgeous intense colour, it's smooth and glossy without being sticky and the doefoot applicator is great for application. I love this product and the colour is right up my street as it reminds me a little of my favourite Revlon Lip Butter, Berry Smoothie. I think i might take this with me on holiday in August, as i don't wear much make up but sometimes it's nice to wear a little colour for dinner and it's the perfect travel size. I always know that you're supposed to take care of your skin from an early age but, as i've said before, i'm lazy! So i'm really looking forward to giving this Lierac cream a go, as i've found my normally normal combination skin has been a little dry lately. I've heard of the brand name before - probably through Youtube somewhere, so it's nice to be able to try something famed in the blogging community. I'm not particularly a huge leg and foot cream kinda gal but now the Summer is coming and i'm shaving and getting my legs, and feet, out more often this might be quite nice to try out. It's got cocoa butter in it which i love the smell of and love the feel of so i'm looking forward to trying this - it's also a full size product which i was really impressed with. What i'm probably most excited about is the Science et Mer products as i love toner and use is daily, and i'm also looking for a makeup remover i'm happy with as i'm fed up of scrubbing at my eyes with wipes! So these i'm really looking forward to trying out.

Overall, i'm really pleased with everything and even more pleased that it all came from my lovely friend Essie! She's really wonderful and absolutely hilarious so please, please check out her blog and Youtube channel - both linked above!
