September Jolie Box

Hello lovelies!
I haven't blogged about my beauty boxes in a while mainly because I've been somewhat disappointed with them - no I am not one of those people constantly moaning on GlossyBox's facebook page complaining that I am not getting boxes full of full sized Clinique and Chanel products!!  However I do expect all of the products to be of a certain size and standard!

Saying that, apart from 1 teeny sample, this months Jolie Box was rather satisfying!  Here are my first thoughts on the box..

Balmi Lip Balm (RRP £4.99, full size)
LOVE this little ball of yumminess!!!!  I received the beautiful smelling matte black ball in Blackcurrant flavour and it is delish!  I have been using it constantly since I opened my box and its keeping my super dry lips soft and smelling gorgeous!  The balm contains shea butter and jojoba oil which is so moisturising and the shape of the product is fab as it means no fingers needed!

I Love... Coconut Face Mask (RRP 49p?, full size 15ml sachet)
I am a massive fan of face masks, I tend to use them once a fortnight whilst watching some kind of chick movie and pillow fighting with my girl friends... OK so maybe not but I defo try to apply one a much as poss!!  This one sounds great as i love the smell of coconut and its packed with loads of fruit extracts and everyone knows fruit is good for you right?!  Will be trying this out Friday night so i'll let you know how i get on there..

Redken Align 12 Protective Straightening Lotion (30ml sample, full size 150ml - RRP £15ish)
I actually let out a small to medium EEKKK when I discovered there was Redken in my box!! As you will know I recently did a post about their fabulous Blow Dry Lotion which is my holy grail every morning!  I tried this out this morning and O.M.G it is brilliant!  I didn't straighten my hair at all  which just is not the norm for me in the slightest!!  My hair is totally frizz free and straight (but not poker and flat and horrid)  I will 100% be purchasing the full size as the results are amazing!

Twistband Hair Ties x 2   RRP $2 each
Now I have seen a couple of people slagging these cute hair ties off!!  I think people need to lay off these little bad boys as I am loving them!  I received the red and silver and tried them out last night.. not only do they not leave the dreaded hair tie kink but they didn't snag my hair at all which is a pet hate of mine with  normal hair ties.  I also think they look so cute in your hair, almost like a little ribbon!  I want more :)

Dr Bragi Bio Marine Exfoliant (2 x *TINY* sample sachets, full size 50ml - RRP £25)
So this is that "teeny sample" I mentioned at the start of this post.  So think of a postage stamp and that's about the size of the packaging.. then probably less than a pea sized amount inside!  How ridiculous is that?!  How on earth you are meant to try out this exfoliant and review it is beyond me but I gave it a go last night and its actually a really great product.  I am a big fan of Dermalogica's Microfoliant and the consistency felt very similar to that and for half the price full size!  The thing is I sometimes like a product after using it once but I need to try it at least 3 or 4 times to confirm that I love it so I very much doubt I will be buying the full size based on the silly sample sachets

So I think this has been one of my fave boxes to date.. however I am thinking of cancelling my GlossyBox and signing up for a She Said Beauty Box!?  Should I take the plunge?? What is everyones thoughts on the She Said boxes?
