Some other beauty boxes

As I mentioned in my previous post, I was going to receive some more beauty boxes and so I did last week before leaving for London for a 3-day trip to my favorite city. 

The first box I received was "Ma Boîte à Beauté" which was full of organic products! 

All those products aren't products that I would normally use but I will try them all :)

And here comes the second box that I absolutely love! All the products are amazing and the box looks so cute! 

This is the Joliebox

  • Biosilk - hair serum (that I also received in the Glossybox but I don't mind as I am already in love with this product)
  • Le French Touch - Lipstick by Lancôme (this is a limited edition which is sold for 29,90€ at Sephora! Such a great surprise to receive such a fancy product) 
  • Phytojoba - Shampoo for dry hair (I won't be using it as I don't have dry hair at all) 
  • Moisturising body Serum by Boots 
  • Crabtree & Evelyn hand cream (this is my FAVE product, definitely! it smells amazingly and leave your hands so soft, you just can't stop touching them).

My first beauty box

Have you ever heard of Beauty Boxes?! A few weeks ago, I had no idea those existed and a friend of mine posted a picture on Facebook of a box she had just received and this is how I discovered this concept which apparently arrived in France in June last year so it's actually old news for everyone but me :] 

After visiting a first website and looking around blogs, I discovered that there were more than just one brand of beauty boxes so I decided to to try some of them out (understand here that I ended up subscribing to all of them). 


The concept is simple. Every month, you receive a box with about 5 beauty products in travel sizes (sometimes full size) from different cosmetic brands (usually high quality and expensive ones). The subscription price varies from one box to the other but it's more or less around 10-15€. 

Today I received my very first box from Glossybox. It is called "Belle des Champs" as Spring started only a few days ago. 

This is how the box looks. I simply love it.

And this is the inside of the box ; it looks so classy and highly glamorous!

I am quite happy with this first box - to be honest I had already spent all weekend reading blogs and I already knew more or less what I would receive so it wasn't much of a surprise. I'll try to not do this next time but it's really tempting when you know some people have already received their box. 

Tomorrow I will get another box from "Ma boîte à beauté" so I might also show you what's in there if you're interested. In the meantime, I would really love to hear about your experience with beauty boxes and whether they exist or not in your country. 

Let's have a beauty talk :]
