My Little Box and I have been in a relationship for quite a while now, and it’s going pretty well. Like, I think they might be The One. They just get me, constantly surprise me, treat me. Yeah, they’re awesome.
Of course this month’s was no different. Great products, one in particular that made me feel like they might be reading my mind. I’m always so excited to share what I get in them because they open your eyes to new brands and products; I even gave one to my friend for her birthday (they do gift subscriptions which I think is a pretty cool idea for anyone who’s into beauty products). April’s theme was ‘dream’, and the items were heavenly (bad pun – sorry!).
Let’s have a look at the beauty-specific products to start with. First up was from the house brand, My Little Beauty, with a Repairing Mask for Dry Ends. It’s £7 for 100ml and they gave you the full size in the box. I love it when they do that! This is definitely going to come in handy during the next few weeks before I can get to the hairdressers’ for them to cut and recolour my hair, and I’ve been looking for something that will sort out my split ends and make them look less eurgh. While I haven’t used this yet, it smells amazing and I’m keen to see how it works.
Next was a tinted lip balm from Lou Lesage. It retails at £8, which I guess isn’t too bad as it can be used to moisturise as well as add colour. I don’t tend to wear colour on my lips very often but I’d quite like to start so this is a good way to ease into it without going straight to a full-on lipstick, especially as I’ve found a lot of them in the past to be quite drying or short-lasting.
My favourite beauty product this month was by Sabé Masson. It’s a perfume stick in a scent called Copacabana. Really, what’s not to love about this? The packaging is bright and exotic and makes me wish I was already on holiday (4 months to go!). It smells exactly as you’d expect it to as well, summery and fresh. The size makes it perfect to fit in your handbag, and at £15 per stick, it’s something I’ll definitely look to purchase other scents to last me through the summer.
Now on to the non-beauty items, which I’m always eager to see because they differ so much from month to month. I have to say that I wasn’t thrilled by the first item, a ‘Bonne Etoile’ locket from Delphine Pariente. It would normally retail for £20, but there’s absolutely no way I’d pay that. The string makes it seem a little cheap, and the quality overall leaves much to be desired. The upside is that you get 20% off online if you wanted to browse the rest of the jewellery, but that’s really the only incentive I see to drive people to the shop. I’d have liked to see something better made that made me want to learn more about the brand and products, so this item fell a little flat with me unfortunately. Cool way to package it though!
I’ve definitely saved the best for last this month. Since I was little I’ve always been obsessed with stationery, and even now I’ve got stacks of notepads, post-its and pens dotted around my house, so you can imagine how happy I was to find an ink pad and 12 variation stamp in my box! It’s a cool pastel blue/green colour and can be switched to different settings such as ‘To Do List’ and patterns of clouds and hearts. I tried it out as soon as I possibly could:
I genuinely think that My Little Box are doing so well every month, keeping things interesting by mixing things up especially with the non-beauty products. I can see myself getting this for months, if not years, to come!
