Meet JolieBox Co-Founder Mathilde Lacombe

JolieBox co-founder Mathilde Lacombe. Yes, we have a ginormous girl crush on her.

If only we could all be as minimalist as Katniss. In Hunger Games, our favorite heroine spends weeks sleeping in trees and still manages to look fierce while kicking butt. While we can’t be nearly as rugged in everyday life, we can take a page out of her low-maintenance book.

Create Custom Makeup With This Wonder Balm!

Lately, our entire office has been buzzing about One Love Organics® Skin Savior Waterless Beauty Balm—an incredible multi-purpose salve included in this month’s Birchbox.
