I have a new obsession – it’s trial box subscriptions. After a lot of research, I joined two companies – the first is Glossybox, which has it’s own German branch, and JolieBox which I am sneaky with as they only send to the UK or France, so I get Mum to forward the boxes to me.
My very first JolieBox arrived this week, so I was very very excited. Jolie boxes contain one full size item and 3 trial sized items and costs £10 a month.
This month, the box contained a full sized China Glaze nail varnish, Essential Care trial size moisturiser, Talika trial eye patches and RMK trial size base.
China Glaze Nail Varnish
I think this was a bit of a pants full size. It is a purple tinted glitter varnish, not a colour that is in fashion nor is it to everyone’s tastes. Certainly not to mine. I like some glitter varnishes but not that kind of stick glitter. I’ll be giving it to my sisters.
Essential Care Organic Rose Moisturiser
This says it’s for all skin types. I’ve been using a BB cream daily and my skin seems a lot more greasy than normal. I used this cream then wore powder during the day and my skin felt a lot happer. It’s not overly greasy and it has a nice light rose scent to it. I’ll see how it goes throughout the month with this but I would consider buying the full product.
Talika Eye Therapy Patch
I gave these a go today – they are gell patches that you place under your eyes and can re-use up to 3 times. You keep them on for 30 mins, and afterwards my eyes did look a lot better and fresher. The skin under my eyes was a lot smoother, too. They appear to be a little pricey to buy in full so I wouldn’t buy them for myself. But maybe as a gift to my mum or someone.
RMK Make Up Base
Apparently, RMK is the biggest selling make up brand in Japan. I had never heard of it. Whether this is because it is a big porky pie or whether it is because I am ignorant to these things, I have no idea. However, this base is really good. It’s silky smooth and light, and easy to apply. It smoothed out my skin tone and didn’t feel heavy or greasy at all. It’s also a tad pricey but I think if it continues to impress me as it has done this week, I will be investing in this for sure.
I got an email this morning saying my German Glossybox will be with me in a few days too! I’m so excited to try out all these new products!
