I have always been a bit fearful of Beauty Subscription boxes. I am not a girly girl as such but I do love a bit of pampering.But what if everything they send me is pink?! What if the make up doesn’t match my porcelain/snowman skin tone? So many questions that remained unanswered! So I took the plunge with My Little Box. The Box is £11 a month and £3.95 P&P with a promise that the contents will be worth up to £65. The www.mylittlebox.co.uk site claims that each box will contain: Must-have beauty products (including one from their own in-house beauty range, My Little Beauty) , Fashion and lifestyle accessories , Their magazine (My Little World),Illustrated goodies by Kanako ,and other surprises… The subscription can be cancelled any time, however after receiving my box I don’t think I shall be cancelling any time soon….
Firstly, the box itself is lovely. The kind of box that you would keep to put trinkets in. As this months theme is “Dream” I may keep my cut outs in there from magazines of all holidays I SHALL go on one day,haircuts that I SHALL get and maintain and the perfect smoky eye look that I WILL perfect and not look like a low rent lady of the night. As I said, the theme is dream….
So upon opening this beautiful box I am greeted by a lovely card with a quote from Walt Disney telling me “If you can dream it, you can do it” I may keep this on my desk at work… Then a small beautifully decorated envelope, a lovely stamp inside “Stamped with Love” with 12 rotatable sayings in French and English, paired with a mini ink pad. This stamp shall come with me to work where I shall cover my entire male work office with whimsical sayings. I am going to keep the envelope for spare hair bands ( nothing goes to waste in this household) .
A little cloud comes next, that I really didn’t want to open as it was so dainty, however I tore it open with my oversized man hands and out popped a gorgeous little locket, perfect for the beach, designed by Delphine Pariente, reading “Lucky Star” a perfect summer day accessory. The My Little Magazine comes packed with advice, tips and tricks.
Next inside a definite use again draw string bag, I find a repairing hair mask, my god I need a hair mask, just have a look at the You Tube review of the box and you will understand, this particular mask is from My Little Box’s own beauty range My Little Beauty. The packaging is elegant, it smells amazing and to my surprise it was a full size bottle at 100 ml. I then pull out Cowshed Wild Cow Invigorating Body Lotion, 100 ml. My skin is dry and flaky thanks to the Great British Weather and from the feel of this lotion it will be a perfect match for my snake like exterior. Next up is a lovely Loved by Lou Lesage Lip Balm, in a deep red tone, which glides on like a cloud off a unicorns behind. Perfect for those quick fix moments, or to me, every hour.
I know I have gushed about this box and I apologise, in fact I don’t scrap that, it’s superb. Quality, class, elegance, this box has it all. This months contents came to £53, who could complain?
