Today I'm going to be talking about my shopping experience with Jolse! I made a purchase with them at the start of April when I started to get a little bit OCD about completing some sets of Korean Cosmetics that I have incomplete at the moment! Unfortunately and fortunately for me, these turned out to be quite hard to find and I ended up finding a lot of new Korean Cosmetic stores to shop with and waste all my money in!
Website PracticalityI have an extreme dislike for this layout of store. I hate little sidebars and advertisements down the side of my screens, it's just irritating to me! What makes matters worse is that this site logs you out if you are inactive for 5 minutes! You have to have a password that's at least 10 characters long and includes uppercase, lowercase, numbers and punctuation. My banking passwords aren't as complicated as that!! It also doesn't save your logon details properly, so every time it signs you out every 5mins, I have to retype the long stupidly hard to remember password. If I didn't need a couple of products from this store I wouldn't shop there because it's just too freaking annoying!
Jolse's prices are quite reasonable, especially considering the offer free shipping! Prices are in USD.
Jolse Rosy Tint Lips $7.38 + Shipping $0.00 = $7.38
Cosmetic Love Rosy Tint Lips $8.50 + Shipping $0.00 = $8.50
Roseroseshop Rosy Tint Lips $6.47 + Shipping $3.49 = $9.96
Shipping and PackagingMy free shipping was sent on April 1st, and arrived at the post office on April 13th, although I didn't recieve it until April 21st. I'm not entirely sure what happened there, but nothing was harmed in my package at any rate and it got to me in the end! ^.^ Jolse also included a whole bunch of interesting testers!
ProductsI only purchased two products from Jolse, the Etude House Lovely Cookie Blusher in Grapefruit Jelly and the Etude House Rosy Tint Lips in Rose Petal!
I purchased this Lip Tint in the shade Rose Petal (or Rose Fetal as listed on Jolse) because it was the cheapest that I could find at $8.20USD!
I almost have all the colours of these lip tints so will be able to review them shortly - I absolutely love these! ^.^
I must've bought the last blusher in this colour as it's sold out on Jolse now!This blush colour is super pretty and totally wearable! It's not too hard to find, so if you're after this colour you'll be able to find it quite easily. I adore these blushes and am super close to completing my collection - watch out for a full review soon!
What I Love
- Some hard to find products
- Free shipping
- Decent discounts
- Generous free samples
- Generous free samples
What I Don't Love
- Website is irritating and logs you off after 5mins of inactivity
- Jumped through many hoops to create a login
Final ThoughtsAlthough I dislike Jolse's webstie so much, I still enjoyed shopping with them! The shipping was free and quite quick, they gave generous samples (also very interesting samples!) and they usually have quite decent discounts. I would shop with them again if they had the best priced product, or a limited edition, very hard to find product, but I really, REALLY don't like their website format. Stop logging me out so often and I would definitely shop there more often! ^.^
