*My Little Box – April 2017
Price of the Box – from £13.95 a month
No of Products – 8 items
My April My Little Box arrived fashionably late as usual and as this month’s box was ultimately themed around Gardens I thought it would be rather apt if I ventured out into the garden to take my photo’s which is the first for me as I do love a white background! Anyway in terms of the theme it’s been executed very well and the box design is ever so pretty but if I’m completely honest I wasn’t really wowed by some of the contents and I’m also a little baffled why we have such a skin care heavy beauty line-up but nonetheless this box still brings a smile to my face and I love that they focus on both beauty and lifestyle products.
My Little Box is a hand-picked and beautifully designed box of beauty, fashion and lifestyle surprises. With fashion accessories, beauty products and other goodies created exclusively for you and based around a different theme every month, each box promises to delight their subscribers. They also produce their very own in-house beauty products known as My Little Beauty.
Here’s what they featured inside their April edition:
1. The Beauty Products – 3 Items
Each month My Little Box include 3-4 beauty products from both well-known and emerging brands, all of which are either are generous full sizes or samples.
Up first is the Mixa Restoring Body Lotion (Full size RRP £6.49), a budget brand I’ve not come across before but this was the culprit that made the box so much more heavier this month! This body lotion is enriched with Allantoin and immediately moisturises dry skin leaving it feeling intensely repaired and soothed with a non greasy formulation.
This month we have two offerings from My Little Beauty, the first item is the Vitamin Shot Face Scrub (Full size 75ml) that’s described as a wake up call for the skin! Made with Bamboo extract, apricot seed powder and argan oil this promises to reveal a smoother, brighter and more awake-looking skin. I do love the fragrance so while I wasn’t excited to see this I’ll definitely give it a go.
Up next from My Little Beauty is the Easy Morning Moisturiser (Full size 40ml), a perfecting cream that hydrates and illuminates dull and tired skin thanks to the subtle shimmer particles however it’s not actually subtle at all and literally made me look like a disco ball – certainly not a look I’d want to be rocking in the mornings!
2. Lifestyle Items – 5 items
This month on the lifestyle front you can expect to see a generous variety of goodies to delve into, 5 to be precise and includes a Monthly Fruit and Veg Calendar, a Magnetic Shopping List Pad which is really handy to stick on the fridge (it stays put too!), a Printed Bandana Scarf, Water Bottle Fruit Infuser and a pack of Ape Coconut Bites.
I’ve got to admit in comparison to last month’s box which was truly amazing, their April edit just wasn’t on par in my opinion but having said that they did execute the garden theme to perfection and is something that never fails to amaze me. Line-up wise there was lot’s to delve into and it started off really well with the huge body lotion, the magnetic shopping list and the water bottle but unfortunately for me it just went downhill from there, I guess I just wasn’t excited by the remainder and I definitely wasn’t impressed with the all the skin care they included but I did like that they threw some healthy vibes into the mix such as the water bottle, the coconut bites and the seasonal fruit and veg calendar. Overall this month’s box wasn’t a favourite of mine but it did include some highlights that I’ll certainly be able to make use out of.
