The July JolieBox appeared a few days ago and this month's theme is 'summer essentials'. I've already posted about my own summer essentials, but JolieBox's interpretation includes everything from self tan to the first thing I spotted, Etat Pur Pure Active A22- Salicylic Acid 300. I've been hovering over the 'buy' button for either Origins Super Spot remover, Mario Badescu Drying Lotion or Malin+Goetz Acne treatment, so this came just in time. My skin isn't exactly 'bad', but there is still the odd pesky blemish that needs sorting out. The packaging is awesome, you press the bottom to push a drop out of the top, which saves on waste and it's also a generous size. Whilst it is high in salicylic acid, it doesn't sting on application and, after using it for a couple of days, I've not found it drying. The Jane Iredale Tantasia Self Tanner isn't something I'd necessarily choose as it looks a little orange in the tube. However it blended out nicely onto the skin and the colour was very subtle. The was also another Insitut Esthederm product, the Bronze Repair anti-wrinkle tanning cream, although this wasn't listed on the menu card. I haven't had a chance to try either of the Institut products yet, but the sun has finally shown its face so I will be testing them soon. Next is a NailGirls Gold and Bronze from the Medal Collection inspired by the Olympics. I received Gold and Bronze which are both really pretty shades and they applied evenly (as some metallics can seem a little streaky). Finally there is a sample of WEN by Chaz Dean Sweet Almond and Mint Cleansing Conditioner. I'm not exactly sure what a 'cleansing conditioner' is meant to do (besides the obvious), but I was really happy to see that it was free from detergents and Sodium Laurel Sulphate, which I try to avoid as it irritates my scalp. There were also some Joliebox branded toe separators in the box.
