Etat Pur Express Purifying Mask
Full size: £7.50 for 50ml
I really love trying out different face masks, and this one looks very interesting indeed. Apparently this is a biomimetic formula - I have no idea what this means, but it sounds impressive! It goes on like a normal face mask, and says it absorbs oil and impurities, leaving your skin clear and soft, which is perfect for my skin. I can't wait to give this a go! We also got a voucher code for free delivery and 3 free samples on the website, but having browsed the website I realised everyone gets that anyway. Oh well, still a great product!

Jane Iredale Tantasia
Full size: £24 for 124ml / Sample size: 5ml approx. (worth approx £1)
A rather disappointingly small sample of tan, but I think if I just use it on the face and neck I will get a few applications out of it. This is a gradual moisturising tan and it smells delicious and citrusy. In general, I really like Jane Iredale products and you can't go wrong with a good tan, so I am looking forward to trying this out.

NailGirls Mini Polish in Gold and Bronze
Full size: £10.50 each / Sample size: 2.5ml each approx. (worth approx. £3.50 each)
These two mini nail polishes are from the NailGirls Medal Collection, which is inspired by the Olympics. The gold shade is a lovely rich shimmery colour which I can definitely see myself using. The bronze, on the other hand, is rather dark and unflattering, not at all like the bright vibrant colours I like to wear on my nails, so I think I will be giving this away. These are quite small sizes, but I've never tried anything from NailGirls before, so at least I get to try out a new brand.

Wen by Chaz Dean Sweet Almond Mint Cleansing Conditioner
Full size: £24.95 for 480ml / Sample size: 60ml (worth approx. £3)
I can't wait to try this out! The packaging makes me think of something out of Twilight, but other than that it is a pretty interesting product. It is a conditioner which doesn't lather, because for a product to lather it uses some harsh ingredients which aren't very good for your hair. This way, your hair is thoroughly cleansed but it won't be stripped of any natural oils - quite impressive! You can also use it as a leave-in conditioner too. The only down side to this product is that you have to "massage vigorously for 1-3 minutes" - sounds painful, no? Ha ha! But other than that, 60ml is a good sample size to really give this a test, and I am looking forward to using it.

Davines Authentic Moisturising Balm
Full size: £17.50 approx for 150ml / Sample size: 75ml (worth approx. £8.75)
I received this as a bonus item to apologise for the inconvenience of our late boxes last month (I didn't even receive mine, but they have refunded me) but I know that other people got different products. I saw this in a previous box before I had subscribed and always thought I wanted to try it out, so I'm glad I got this. This is a really cool multi-purpose balm which can be used as a hair conditioner, makeup remover, or body moisturiser. It is exactly the sort of thing that would be perfect to take away on holiday, and I think I may use it for just that!

Overall worth: £27.25
Overall thoughts: A really good box! Definitely makes up for last month!
(Also, love the little bonus JolieBox toe separators)
