This Jolie Beauty Box contains:

Absolution La Crème Gommante Face Scrub (full-size) £28.10

This soft peeling treatment eliminates impurities and dead cells from the skin in one-step leaving it deeply cleansed, smooth, and glowing with vitality. The mechanical exfoliating action is due to micro-algae diatoms. Their microscopic particles are perfectly rounded allowing dead cells to slough off gently without damaging the skin. The gentle action of AHAs, extracts of Blueberry, Lemon, Orange, Sugar Cane and Maple, stimulates the renewal of epidermis revealing the natural glow of the skin. Amaranth seeds extract, high in lipid components including squalane and sterols, protects and nourishes your skin when it is especially responsive. Almond pulp, rich in protein, vitamins, and minerals associated with hazelnut oil, adds nutrition and condition. Rosehip oil regenerates the skin by stimulating collagen production. Suitable for all skin types, even the most sensitive.

Absolution La Crème Gommante Face Scrub

This is my first time trying Absolution, I’ve heard rave reviews.  First of all, I love the packaging, you simply turn the cap to dispense the product.  It has a lovely almond scent with some citrus tones.  The face scrub is really gentle as the particles are very fine.  It gently exfoliates leaving my skin super smooth and soft.

I’ve never heard of Flow Cosmetics but you know I love powder face masks.  You mix 2 teaspoons of the powder and 1 teaspoon of water in a bowl until smooth (you can also use floral water, add yoghurt or honey).  Apply to cleansed skin and leave it on for about 10 minutes.

The mask slightly hardens and tightens the skin.  After 10 minutes, I rinsed with warm water.  I was impressed with the results, my skin was so smooth and looked brighter.  I look forward to the results over time.

John Masters Organics Citrus & Neroli Detangler Conditioner 30ml

 

This is another favourite from John Masters Organics.  Thankfully it’s not the new formula which annoyingly now contains silicones.  This one works wells as a detangler ~ it literally melts away any tangles or knots in my hair and also doubles as a leave-in conditioner.  I like that the consistency is very light and doesn’t weigh down my hair but leaves it soft, shiny and moisturised.

 

 

This foundation provides you a perfect, dewy finish with medium coverage. Tamanu oil is renowned for its healing properties and its regulatory power for reactive skins. It also protects from the sun while fighting against blemishes and scars by activating cellular repair. Green Tea fights against free radicals. The moisturizing effect is due to Aloe Vera, a true wonder of nature used since antiquity for its virtues. It contains not less than 80 nutrients: vitamins, minerals, amino acids, enzymes, mono and polysaccharides. Shade Light is suitable for light to light-medium skin tones. Suitable for all skin types.

Absolution La Crème du Teint Foundation Light

I like the feel and consistency of this foundation but sadly it’s not suitable for my skin tone.  I will be passing it on to a friend and hope she enjoys it.

Patyka Antioxidant Smoothing Cream Thin Texture

The texture of this cream is light and the scent is fresh and sweet.  It absorbs well but for me it’s not hydrating enough for the winter.  It would be a perfect moisturiser for the summer.

 

I’ve really enjoyed this beauty box and have discovered some lovely brands.  Many thanks to Jolie for sending me this box.

Check out Jolie.co.uk as they currently have a sale of up to 30% off.

 

Wishing you all a lovely weekend and a fantastic New Year!
