My Little Box is the first beauty subscription box that has made me part with my cash. I’ve dabbled in beauty boxes before having received a three month subscription to Glossy Box and a one off box from Look Fantastic as gifts, and really enjoyed both of them. However, I haven’t been persuaded to sign up for a subscription myself – until I found out about My Little Box that is.
So what made me sign up to My Little Box? The subscription contains French beauty products – a market I have been interested in ever since I discovered the ‘magic’ of Micellar water. Even better – the box always contains fashion or lifestyle accessories too so you are getting more than just another beauty box subscription. All this for £11 per month plus £3.95 postage and packaging makes it competitively priced. I’m on my third box, and each one has had a different theme. All have been winners as far as I’m concerned!
Onto April’s box – the My Little Dream box. It came beautifully packaged as you can see, and contains a card with a Walt Disney quote. All boxes so far have included inspirational quotes, and being a huge Disney fan this is my favourite yet! Also included, as is every month, is the My Little World magazine. Always well worth a read including beauty and lifestyle tips.
The beauty products always come in a cute little canvas bag, which makes a lovely keepsake. As with other subscriptions, there seems to be some variability between the boxes which makes it a surprise even if, like me, you are addicted to reading blog posts about subscription boxes, or watching unboxing videos on You Tube!
This month I received a Loved by Lou Lesage tinted lip balm (worth £8), a Cowshed wild cow body lotion (worth £18) and a My Little Beauty hair mask (worth £7). My Little Beauty is a company created my My Little Box themselves, and they include a product in the box every month. The box also contains cards explaining about the products and are beautifully written, telling a story rather than being purely factual. These cards come in very handy when a lot of the time the writing on the packaging is in French!
Onto the ‘non-beauty’ content. First up this month is a stamp with ink (worth £8). This box is definitely a good pick for lovers of both beauty and stationery or crafts, as there have been previous items of this nature.
Inside is a beautiful pendant on a cord necklace by the designer Delphine Pariente (worth £20). The card explains that ‘bonne etoile’ means ‘lucky star’. Even if the necklace is not to your taste as far as jewellery is concerned, it makes a gorgeous little trinket to display somewhere in your home – mine is currently hanging over my dressing table mirror.
The mathematically minded of you (not me – calculator required!) may have noted that the total value in the box is £61. So for value for money, originality and design – this is a great subscription service in my opinion. You can sign up for My Little Box here (not an affiliate link). Let me know your thoughts if you decide to sign up, or are already subscribed!
