Bonjour Jolie is meant to be a pampering box for women during their "time of the month". Each box includes monthly supplies, a gift, an edible treat and some spa items. It is the ultimate "Time of the Month" subscription box!

The Supplies:


In past reviews I have included Advil in the "Pampering" section, but Advil is really a monthly necessity so in my books, it is now part of the "Supplies" category!

The Edibles:


Bigelow Tea - 5 assorted tea bags


Toot Sweet Artisan Caramels (4 pieces)
I am so glad they included Caramels this month! These ones are salted honey caramels. I am all for salted caramel and chocolates but these ones were a tad too salty. Don't get me wrong, I still gobbled them up, but I wouldn't buy this flavour again.

The Pampering:


Spa Girl Soaps - Ultra Moisturizing Bath Bomb in Hydrangea Heaven

Bonny Bubbles - Silky Deodorant Body Powder in Garden Spa  

The Fleury Girls - By the Sea Body Lotion (4.5 ml sample)
Full size bottle is 250ml for $8.99.

Crochet Happy Mommy - Cotton Face Scrubby
The Crochet Happy Mommy sells 10 of these for $1. They are machine washable and can be used in place of cotton pads. (The product card lists the value of this as $1, when it's actually only 10 cents.)

The Gift:



Chiffon Sarong
This is a great gift for summer time. The bright colours and fish design are so fun!  It's not as big as some sarongs that can be fashioned into dresses and full cover ups, but it can be used as a little bathsuit wrap around your hips, or even as a scarf.


The July "Independence" box is another great offering from Bonjour Jolie. I'm not doing a box valuation this month. It's hard to but a value on a box like this, especially when product values on the card are inaccurate (face scrubby and lotion, for example). I do know that every month the box is full of items worth more than the $16 monthly fee. Bonjour Jolie is always fun top open up and I've always enjoyed the products included. This month is no different.

What do you think of the July Bonjour Jolie box?

  1. Didn't like this box as much as the previous ones you've shared, but it's still a really nice subscription :)

    1. The May box is still my favourite, but this one is good too. All the pampering products are the caramels are from Etsy shops!

  2. I'm a little less excited about getting my own box now that I see yours, but it'll be fun anyways. Whenever it ships.
