JolieBox March - Little Fille's "Elodie" headband!

By now, all beauty enthusiasts have probably heard of JolieBox - the monthly beauty box that delivers hand picked samples of luxury beauty products right to your doorstep. Unfortunately, I'm saving my pennies at the moment, so I don't subscribe - but I'm always oh so tempted whenever reading a blog that features this month's 'reveal.'

Imagine my surprise when discovering that JolieBox's new monthly magazine featured Little Fille's Elodie headband on the cover! Of course, I contacted them right away to confirm, and they were lovely enough to send me the magazine (which my mom will be receiving shortly in the post) and March's box (Sorry mom, that stays with me). Thank you, Siobhan!

What's great about this box was that most of this stuff was full size - so you're definitely getting your money's worth. And all the products come in a dust bag - which is completely luxe, don't you think?

Yardley English Lavender body wash - I love the scent of lavender, so this is naturally a winner in my book.

Eyeko Skinny Eyeliner - I like the silver handle concept, meaning that when the pencil is sharpened all the way down, you can still use it properly and aren't just struggling with a teeny, tiny pencil. Chic and economical. The pencil's consistency is quite creamy, so perfect for smudging. I'm not much of a "smudger" but I'm thinking someone who really likes a smokey eye would like this pencil.

Davines Authentic Moisturising Face/Hair/Body Balm - this is one of those all-in-one multi-taskers which is always useful on those 'Shit, where is my makeup remover/lotion/face wash/hair oil?' kind of days. I used it to remove the Eyeko eyeliner swatch off my hand and it did a pretty good job, and also left my hand feeling soft and moisturised. Plus it has really good stuff in it (organic jojoba oil, sunflower oil, and sesame oil and shea butter) and smells like a nice smelling boy - true story.

Free Your Mind Collection by LCN - This colour was sort of a fail on my skintone, but it has really pretty specks of gold. Also, it dries super fast which should be a plus, but for people who are crap at applying nail polish (me), it can be a bit annoying because you can't "blend" the streaks as easily.

Finally, the magazine featuring the Elodie headband, that you can buy here or at Boticca. Doesn't the model look lovely?

Anyway, thanks again to the wonderful people at Joliebox for featuring the headband on the cover(!) and for sending me a lovely box. If you're looking for a beauty box to subscribe to, look no further - this one's for you. You won't be disappointed and their customer service is top notch.
