A personal review

So, I see there are a lot of blogs where people get sent goods from companies, for them to try and test and write about it on their blog. This is not one of those blogs. This is a business blog, so you can know all the behind-the-scenes gossip, and of course store news.

However I recently made a purchase that I would like to share my experience about with you. A few months ago I subscribed to Joli Natural Skincare newsletter, so I could know more about the company, and also because when you sign up you get a free product sample (hello, who doesn't like a free sample?!). I've been getting the newsletter regularly since and I have to say it's full of interesting information, special offers and even funnies to brighten my day. 
Let's talk free sample though. You can choose which free sample you'd like, I chose the Fluffy Lime Eye Cream. In the pack I also received brochures and information about their products, and about companies to be aware of who test on animals. All very interesting. I tried the eye cream and it was wonderful. I didn't have to use much; it smoothed on the delicate eye area and was fluffy. It kept that area well moisturised.

I entered their colouring competition (yes, for adults too! Joli makes adult colouring books too!). My prize was one of their Moisturising Lip Balms, a colouring book and a $15 gift voucher to use in their store. Winning! 
The lip balm is incredible. I got to choose my own combination - so I chose a Pink colour and Lolly Musk flavour - yum. It's super moisturising, which is what you want in cold winter weather (and in hot summers too I would imagine).

After all the good experience I had had with Joli, I was ready to spend my $15 gift voucher and then some. So I ordered the Whipped Cream Facial Moisturiser; Massage Oil and Fluffy Lime Eye Cream.
Overall I was really happy with everything. The packaging was what-you-see-is-what-you-get (no heavy lids or indented bottoms), simple and light - all product. With the facial moisturiser I soon learned I only needed half the amount that I would normally use of an international company's moisturiser (happy), and it thoroughly moisturises my skin. I've already spoken about the lip balm (awesome) and the eye cream (amazingly fluffy). The massage oil is perfectly scented and a great texture - we love it. 
One of the other great things about Joli is it's all natural - no harsh chemicals that seep into your blood stream - you can understand the labels - with ingredients like Apricot Kernal Oil, Jojoba Oil, Vitamin E, Lime Essential Oil etc. 
I happily give Joli Natural Skincare five stars!
