On first impressions I was a little horrified about how empty the black bag inside seemed - but then my beady little eyes clocked Balmi & Redken and I was sold. I LOVE this box - bear with me and you'll find out why.
On the front cover this month is Susan Chyi, the founder of Jelly Pong Pong (which she sold to investors last year) and her new company, So Susan Cosmetics. Jelly Pong Pong was featured in the July GlossyBox and So Susan had two products in last month's JolieBox. The magazine's a good one this month and nice and long, too.
Update: This was everything I wanted it to be and more. Whilst not as naturally beneficial as their American counterparts EOS, these are beautifully soft and smooth and apply like a dream. It keeps my lips feeling soft and nourished for hours and I adore the sweet minty scent. I'm definitely going to be purchasing some of the other 'flavours'.
Update: On second inspection, I was disappointed to see how much alcohol was in these. Nonetheless, because I generally use natural "kind to skin ingredients", I didn't think a one off would do too much damage. I opened the packet and it was a very thick, transparent orange gloop and there was far too much of it to go on my face. It smelled vaguely of mango, and wasn't an unpleasant smell. This is a peel-off mask so it dries into a tacky film which you then peel off your face. It took a long time to dry because of the sheer amount of product and in all honesty didn't do much to my face so I wouldn't repurchase this.
Update: This is a brilliant product - it truly does what it says on the tin. I might consider repurchasing the full size when I've used up my other exfoliators - currently the L'Occitane Angelica exfoliator which I alternate with a Dermalogica one and an Elemis FreshSkin offering.
