Until this month, I was a 'My Little Box' virgin - I'd longingly admired their boxes, a beauty box but different from any other one I've ever seen. They're typically, stylishly and elegantly French and what's more, this box isn't just beauty. It's quirky and not afraid to be different, and that's why I love it.
Each month has a different theme, this month it's 'Provence'. Inside there's a little dustbag containing beauty treats from L'Occitane, a little card bag with the words 'Sunny things inside' on the front, and a sheet of cute fridge magnets, a big poster (which I fully intend on getting framed) and a card.
My Little Box costs £11 a month, with £3.95 P&P to be added on top, so £14,95 in total.
Lets take a closer look to see what's inside.
This gorgeous large postcard was inside - it's now sitting on the side of my fridge being held in place with Picasso fridge magnets. Inside was also the My Little Provence Doll magnets, super cute! You can dress her up and accessorise her however you like - even the hubby thought this was cute (£6)!
Inside the little dust bag was a selection of L'Occitane luxury samples, and a 'My Little Beauty' eye shadow crayon in a shimmery brown colour. In more detail under the picture:
The Amazing Pencil - £9
The pencil is in plastic casing with a twist-up-bottom to get more product out, it's a gorgeous milk chocolate shimmery brown, perfect for priming your lids for a similar colour eye shadow, or wearing by itself. This sample is a full size product.
L'Occitane Mer & Mistral Shower Gel - £12 for the full size
I haven't 'used' this yet, however I have had a good old whiff, and it smells just lovely, really fresh and clean, as My Little Box put it 'it's travelling all the way from the perfume capital to make sea meet with breeze' I couldn't have put it better myself :)
L'Occitane Roses et Reines hand and nail cream - £14 for the full size
This I haven't had a whiff of, but I've placed it in the bathroom to use after washing my hands. Now that I have a baby I'm washing my hands more than ever so they're also drier than ever, this is going to get a lot of use!
L'Occitane Verbena Body Lotion - £20 for the full size
Now this I haven't whiffed either, so can't pass comment, but I shall be using it tomorrow morning before we head out, after my shower (we're visiting family and have a long drive).
L'Occitane Verbena Leaf Soap - £4.50 for the full size
This is just super pretty, a leaf shaped soap! As soon as our horrid drying handwash runs out, this is being used next! My Little Box say that 'it looks like a leaf, but smells like citrus. It actus like a scrub and yet feels darn creamy on the skin.' Sounds good to me!
Also inside was a cute little package saying 'Sunny things inside'. When you open the box you're greeted with a gold cuff filled with little holes, and 2 lots of blue yarn/thread ready for you to customise your cuff, how fantastic is this! I think I'll bring this with me for my journey tomorrow so I have something to do in the car (as well as my crochet project!). You can buy this no their shop (www.mylittlecorner.com) for £15.
Swatch of the eye shadow crayon
So what did I think of this box? I freakin' loved it! It's so different from any of the other beauty boxes out there. I love how elegantly French it is, how quirky it is and feminine. You get great value for your money, the cuff alone pays for the box and postage with everything else being a bonus. I can't wait to see what their next box it :) You can shop them here.
