Fellow subscription fanatics, today’s post may be of particular interest to you! If you’re itching to spice up your monthly delivery in terms of subscription boxes and are also feeling a little bit adventurous or just need a change, With Love Box, a fairly new start up may just become your new best friend!

While I love my monthly beauty box deliveries I’ve somewhat also formed an obsession with lifestyle boxes you know the ones that deliver that dose of happiness in the form of beauty, chocolate, stationary, homeware and everything in between! I’ve been trying out quite a few different boxes as of late but one that particularly caught my attention recently while casually scrolling through Instagram is the With Love Box. Coincidentally and to my delight the lovely team got in touch with me and asked if I’d like to review their February box and I of course jumped at the chance and luckily it does include a couple of beauty products so it fits in nicely in terms of my blog remit! Before I unveil my overall thoughts here’s some deets about the company and what you can expect from them as a whole:

With Love believes in taking it back to basics with embracing products made by people who enjoy making them. By subscribing to With Love, you will be receiving a box full of exciting and wide ranging products and is aimed at providing you with all your work needs from cruelty-free beauty, photography, dairy/gluten free healthy snacks to beautifully designed stationery centred around a theme each month. With Love’s team have searched high and low to make sure that they deliver the most bespoke products, all of which are source from British brands and made from the most natural ingredients. They also feature a new photographer each month, including 3 prints of the their work.

Without further ado here’s a breakdown of what was inside their February box and it’s themed ‘Concrete Jungle’

  • Katie Housley Palm Gold Leaf Notebook RRP £7.00
    An illustrated palm notebook with gold foiled details. A5 size – 52 unlined 100gsm pages

 

  • Katie Housley Oh Happy Day Card RRP £2.75

  • Good Natured Soap Citrus Lavender Soap RRP £4.50

  • Good Natured Soap Grapefruit Scrub RRP £4.50

  • Vanilla Concrete Candle RRP 7.00
    This is the first With Love candle! This handmade candle is made from pure soy wax and natural oils. They’ve even gone as far as having an organic cotton wick! Believing in being as sustainable as possible, they chose to have their candles in concrete pots so you’ll be able to re-use them as plant pots or purchase re-fill candles.

 

  • Love Cocoa English Mint Chocolate Bar RRP 3.50
    Summerdown single estate English mint oil subtly blended with our organic, fair-trade 70% cacao dark chocolate from Nacional in Ecuador. Elegance personified.

 

  • Love CocoaDark Chocolate Bar RRP £3.50
    An intense 70% Ecuadorian chocolate is deep, velvety and forceful with notes of dark fruit, ripened plum and concentrated bitter-sweet smokiness from the ‘ancestral home’ of the cocoa bean.

  • Bradley Palmer Prints x 3 

My Verdict 

With so many beauty and lifestyle subscription boxes floating around, I am immensely happy to have discovered With Love Box whose mission is to fill our home and working lives with high quality and hard-to-find beauty and lifestyle products sourced from british brands and features products we may not typically come across otherwise which is always a bonus as it’s much more exciting discovering something new! Sticking to the theme throughout, I really liked this month’s box, the line up gelled together well and I felt like all of the products were things I would actually use which certainly made this box a thing of love! The aspect that stood out the most is that the contents were very well-balanced to satisfy any beauty and lifestyle cravings of the subscriber plus the fact that they include only full-size products gets full marks from me. The only downside for me was the overall value but it did exceed the price of the monthly subscription so apart from that I’m really smitten and have also subscribed so you can expect to see some more reviews in the upcoming months! By the way, we already have a little spoiler for March – the box will feature all things rose from beautiful decorated packaging to scented beauty products!

    Ooh this box is very pretty and I love this theme too. I’m not a fan of rose scented things so I’ll wait until Aprils box and subscribe then, I will however pass it on to my mum who loves Rose everything! Thanks for introducing me to this box, I can see I’ll love it.

    • I can’t fault this box at all and hope they do sustain that momentum when it comes to the quality 🙂 x

    I got the Nuxe Lip Balm with this month’s LMB edit and it’s so good!

    • I’ve not tried their lip balm 🙁

      • A_nonny_mouse

        It feels really weird at first because it’s quite thick and looks matte on your lips but it’s really moisturising- almost a lip mask TBH.

  • Ooh this is intriguing. I was just thinking the other day I wish we had more lifestyle themed boxes in the UK. I’m desperate for someone over here to come up with something like the Popsugar Must Have boxes and Rachel Zoe Box of Style they have in the US! 🙂
