I got my first My Little Box last month which you can read about here and I couldn’t wait for my next one to be delivered. The theme of this month’s box was Frenchie so I was desperate to see what was in. I love it coming as a box of surprises so I always avoid any posts with spoilers, so if you’re the same the same don’t scroll down any further!
For this box My Little Box had teamed up with Ines de la Fressange, if you’re not sure who she is, she is a former model, the muse of Karl Lagerfeld and her style just seems to sum up everything you think of when you imagine French style. As always the first thing you see when you open the box is a cute little print, this month the quote says; “Life is never what it seems – and that’s the great thing about it”. I love the prints in this box and I feel that it really helps to make them stand out from other beauty boxes available. There is also the My Little World Magazine; which has interviews with Ines, hair and make-up tips and at the back it has a recipe for macaroons. I think I’ll be trying out the macaroon recipe and hopefully they will turn out a little better than my last attempt at macaroon making.
The lifestyle products in this box are a phone case and a little pot of notes. The phone case is made of canvas and pvc? It has a little pocket at the front which would be great for putting headphones in or perhaps train tickets if you’re traveling. I don’t normally use phone cases like this but I think that I’ll be trying it out as it looks so pretty. The phone case is quite large so it will definitely fit a range of phones; I’ve pictured it next to my Samsung Galaxy S4 Mini so you can get a rough estimate of the size.
The little pot filled with notes is so cute looking and I love the idea of it! There are 28 little notes with quotes…I haven’t opened any myself yet as they just look so perfect and I can’t imagine the little jar being empty.
Now onto the beauty products! Here’s what came inside this month’s box,
- L’oreal Brow Artist Shaper – I really like this and it matches my brows really well. I’ll give it a full review soon to give you my full thoughts on it.
- My Little Beauty Embellisseur Teinte de Peche– This month’s My Little Beauty product is a complexion enhancer which is suitable for all skin types and aims to leave you with glowing skin. I’ll give this one a full post itself I think, so look out for it!
- DHC Blotting Paper – This little pack contains 100 sheets of blotting paper which is made from 100% natural hemp fibers which apparently makes them more effective than synthetic blotting papers at absorbing oils and mattifying your complexion.
- By Terry Kohl Pencil – I received the shade Bronze Generation. It also has a waterproof formula meaning that it should hopefully last quite a while. I’ve yet to try this but I’ll be sure to update you 🙂
I’m really in love with these boxes and looking forward to next month’s box which should arrive around the time of my birthday! If your curious to know how much this box was worth then I did a quick calculation of the prices and it works out at; £64.49!
Have you tried My Little Box or any other subscription box? Or do you prefer to just buy the products that you want?
