So after much deliberation, I have decided to re-start my subscription to My Little Box. It helped that during Black Friday they had an offer for 50% off for new members making the first box only £7 compared to the usual £14.95. I stopped my subscription earlier this year as I was finding the content to be rather lame. My Little Box is different to the other beauty boxes out there as they try to add a selection of beauty and lifestyle items. It was the lifestyle items that started going down hill, for example they were sending plant pot covers and cheap gold bracelets that you threaded to customise?! Definitely not my cup of tea. However I’ve been reading everyone’s posts over the past few months and it seems as though My Little Box have definitely upped their game.
Introducing the November box, Goodnight. This theme of this box focuses on your night time routine, getting all warm and snuggly, having a bit of a pamper session before heading off to catch some zzz’s. The beauty and lifestyle items follow the same theme which makes a difference and the box feeling more luxurious and exciting. Each box always contains three beauty items, two lifestyle items, a magazine and a cute print.
The magazine this month is more editorial than previous booklets and thankfully there are no more silly fold out posters. The box continues to come with an adorable print which is written in French and translated to English. Some of these make great post cards and educate you around some interesting French facts, people or locations.
The lifestyle items are absolutely gorgeous. My favourite being the ceramic jewellery dish in the shape of a moon. It’s hand made, hand painted and it looks incredibly cute on my bedside table. It’s a handy little dish to keep your rings and earrings in, especially if you forget to remove them before you jump into bed.
The second lifestyle item is this gorgeous reversible sleep eye mask. It feels luxurious and soft. it’s padded and has an elasticated strap to fit comfortably on your head. On one side it says “To the moon and back” and on the other it features a moon and star design. I will definitely be using this and will come in very handy on my next night flight.
The beauty items did not disappoint either. Inside the super soft fabric bag was a Moonrise makeup removing jelly. This is by the My Little Beauty brand. It is a clear jelly that turns milky when it comes into contact with water. It has a faint green tea fragrance and contains camellia oil. It is a skin calming pre bedtime cleanse that leaves your skin feeling incredibly clean and silky smooth. It is 99.5% natural, vegan and suitable for all skin types.
To follow on from cleansing and removing your makeup comes the Garnier Skin Active Pure Active 3 in 1 Wash, Scrub, Mask. It’s 50ml which is great for travelling or simply to sample. It contains eucalyptus extract, zinc and salicylic acid. It’s ideal if you have oily skin prone to imperfections, visible pores and shine.
Lastly nestled at the bottom of the bag was the Yves Rocher Accord Chic fragrance. I’m not one for perfume samples as I tend to stick to the same scents. I also think it’s taken the space of another item as perfume virals can be picked up for free in any department store. Nevertheless, this fragrance has pink peppercorn and iris extracts creating a sophisticated evening scent. It has a slightly sweet edge. To be honest I would probably pass this one by if I saw it inshore however I quite like the scent. It’s 5ml so it’s perfect for popping in your handbag.
I would love to know your thoughts on My Little Box, whether it be on the November box, previous boxes and if you decided to stop/start your subscription. I am very impressed with this box and have high expectations for their December Christmas box (don’t let me down MLB!!). Looking forward to future months!
