I had always wanted to try and beauty box subscription and there are so many out there to choose from. What put me off however was I never seen any that I was like, “I really want to try this one” until I see My Little Box. My Little Box is a subscription box (which you can easily cancel if you need to) which contains both beauty and lifestyle products. The service has only been available in the UK since September so if you haven’t yet heard of them and want the see more you can visit their site here. Each box has a theme and the products are related to the theme of the box.
I signed up the service on the 1st of January to make sure that I got the January box as the first box that you receive is the box of the month that you sign up in. I waited until January as I had already seen the December box and as nice as it looked I really wanted the contents to be a surprise. It says on the website that it can take up to three weeks for your first order to be processed and that they usually aim to have boxes arrive by the 20th of each month. Mine was processed within the three weeks and was marked as dispatched on the 12th and arrive on the 17th. I was so excited when the postman arrived as I love surprises and couldn’t wait to get into the box to see what was inside.
Inside each box you will receive 3 beauty products; one from their own range, My Little Beauty, plus a full sized product and a trial sized product, the My Little World magazine plus other goodies. The theme of this box was Energy and I have to admit that I love the fact that it wasn’t aimed just at people who love going to the gym and working out as I feel that this could have left a lot of people out.
Inside the My Little Energy Box was a cute postcard sized print with a little motivational type saying, the my little world magazine, a calendar (which has sudoku and little ideas through it), a gym bag (but you could easily use this for other things if you’re not a gym fan) and a little drawstring bag with the beauty products. The My Little World magazine has some interviews, makeup tips, exercise ideas and more. The gym bag is a really good size and I have no idea how they managed to fold it up so small – I don’t have a picture of it folded as I opened it up right away to find out what it was. It has a really cute design and says “Good Energy is Contagious”.
Now on to the beauty products! They came in the cute little drawstring bag and when I opened it up this is what it contained;
- Talika Photo-Hydra Day Moisturiser – I’m really looking forward to trying this and I think I’ll give a full review of it really soon.
- Nails Inc Nail Varnish in Tate – This is such a gorgeous colour! I’m currently wearing it and if you want to see what it looks like head to my instagram.
- My Little Beauty Brume Energisante – This is an energising face and body to help refresh the appearance of dull skin. It also contains vitamin C which is known for its toning properties. I’ve used this a few time and really like it. It is a shame that at the moment in the UK you can only get the My Little Beauty products in the My Little Boxes. But I’m hoping that soon we’ll be able to buy them from the My Little Beauty shop.
Overall I love this box and I can’t wait to get my next one! I really recommend that you if you’re going to try a beauty box your try this one. The was a little leaflet inside which tells you the price of the items that you’ve received and I worked out that this box as worth £78.50 – and you only pay £14.95 (£11+£3.95 p+p). I really couldn’t believe it!
Have you tried any beauty boxes? If you have what did you think and do you have a favourite?
