Jolie Box: July 2012

Friday, July 20, 2012
I was a bit surprised to find that my July Jolie Box arrived today, as it was quite late last month and I haven't received a dispatch email but I am very happy with the delivery for this months box. My Jolie Box was delivered by Royal Mail. This months box was not printed, like the birthday box and it still has the Jolie Box drawstring bag. There are seven items in this Jolie Box! The items I received include: Etat Pur Express Purifying Mask (50ml), Jane Iredale Tantasia Face and Body Self Tanner (about 10ml), two NailGirls London Nail Polishes (I received the shades: Gold and Bronze). I also received two Jolie Box toe separators. And because last months box was late the wonderful people at Jolie Box have included a surprise 'special extra'! The special extra that I received was the KMS California Free Shape Hot Flex Spray (30ml). I am quite happy that I received this as a free gift as I have heard a lot of good things about it and I was going to buy the full size bottle but I don't have to now! 
Overall, I am very impressed with the products. I am excited to use all of the products especially the Hot Flex Spray, the Sweet Almond Mint Conditioner (it does smell really quite nice!) and the Etat mask as it sounds like a nice clarifying, purifying mask. The Etat product is one of two that you could get - the other Etat product is the Etat Pur Salicylic Acid 300. Also I have already tried both of the nail polishes and they are fantastic!
I have a love hate relationship with nail polish, as I like painting my nails and I like the shades but I hate it when the polish applies streaky and this one does. It is quite streaky when it applies but once the polish is dry it does not look streaky or patchy at all! The polish also dries really quickly, within five minutes which is fantastic. The shades are gorgeous, especially the bronze shade although the gold is surprisingly nice too. So far I am very impressed with the shades, dry time and appearance of the polishes on my nails. 
Another product that I am excited to use is the Jane Iredale Tantasia Self Tanner, especially as it is suitable for face and body (so you don't need two separate products). The shade looks really orange on my skin but when blended it disappears and leaves a slight tan and the shimmer is hardly noticeable - it just makes my skin look glowing slightly. 

I am very impressed with the July Jolie Box and the free special extra (mine is the hot flex spray that I wanted to try) is a great addition. 

What do you think of the July Jolie Box? x
