My Little Box – April

I absolutely love My Little Box and each month I can’t wait until it gets delivered. This is the only beauty box that I’ve subscribed to and I always try to avoid any spoilers that others post on their blog/instagram as I love it to be a surprise! So if you’re like me and haven’t got this month’s; don’t read any further!

The theme of this months’ box was the Dream box which had a gorgeous illustration on the top of the box. Inside was the usual quote, magazine, lifestyle goodies and beauty products. This month’s quote was “If you can dream it, you can do it” by Walt Disney. This is going to be my new inspirational quote that will hopefully provide me with some extra motivation to achieve my goals. This month’s magazine had tips such as how to create great brows and a hair tutorial for a cute messy bun.

I couldn’t wait to see what was inside these cute little packages! Inside the cloud package I found a cute little necklace stamped with “bonne étoile” which translates to “lucky star”. In the second of the packages I discovered a cute little stamp and ink pad. I think that this will be great for adding a little bit of fun to what could otherwise be boring notes.

And finally on to the beauty products, there seemed to be a theme this month and it was all about getting ready for summer. This month there was;

My Little Box - April

  • My Little Beauty Repairing Hair Mask – I was a little bit disappointed when I saw this considering there was a hair mask in last month’s box which also claimed to target dry ends. I have to admit though I really like this on and think it may actually be better than the Keratase one that I received in March. I don’t really have dry ends but I do find that after using this hair looks super shiny and feels really soft. There is 100mls of product meaning that it should last a while.
  • Loved By Lou Lesage Lip Balm – I am loving this tinted lip balm at the moment and having been using it a lot since I received this box. I find that it helps to add a subtle hint of colour which can be built up slightly and helps to keep lips moisturised. I find that it lasts a few hours before needing to be reapplied.
  • Cowshed Wild Cow Invigorating Boy Lotion – I haven’t had the chance to try this out yet but from what I’ve seen online Cowshed are supposed to be a great brand. This moisturiser smells really fresh and contains lemongrass, ginger and rosemary essential oils. Their body lotions are also naturally free of sulphates and parabens don’t contain mineral oil and petrolatum. Ingredients such as mineral oil and petrolatum trap moisture in the skin rather than helping to add moisture meaning that products containing these aren’t going to help if your skin is feeling dry.

I loved this month’s box and it is definitely up there with my favourites, although I still think that the February box was the best one I’ve received. Personally I think this is a huge improvement on last months which I thought was okay but nothing special. Anyway I always like to add things up for you so you can have an idea how much it would cost to buy everything separately and the total of this month’s box is £61! I really feel like these boxes are good value for money considering they cost £14.95 (£11 + £3.95 p+p) I would say if you want to try out a beauty box then I would go for a My Little Box.

Do you subscribe to My Little Box, if you do did you like this months? If you don’t do you think subscription boxes are a good idea?
