So this month has seen me being introduced to a wonderful new monthly subscription box called My Little Box. I discovered this box via Instagram and fell in love with the contents and thought it offered such a nice selection of products with a chic edge to it with its Parisian vibes I knew that I would enjoy this box very much.
My Little box offers cult French girl beauty favourites and products from their exclusive in-house brand, My Little Beauty. Alongside the beauty products it also combines chic fashion and lifestyle accessories, a mini glossy mag, fashions offers and each month will have a few surprises in between and each month has a theme. For the Month of September created a uber sleek and chic box design and collaborated with French fashion brand Claudie Pierlot, with the theme “Mademoiselle”.
So lets delve in and see what was included:
Claudie Pierlot – Wallet RRP £30
First up was a lovely polka dot box which inside had a beautiful Claudie Pierlot wallet. It feels like really nice quality and has super cute and elegant design, its slim line so not to bulky and would be perfect to pop into your clutch on a night out. Claudie Pierlot isn’t a brand I have heard of before but also in the box was a discount voucher for 30% off if you enter the code “MYLITTLEBOX” at the checkout off on items from their new Fall/Winter collection. This code is valid for one use between 1st to 15th October 2016. Their fashion designs are Chic and in true Parisian elegance although fairly expensive, their clothing is beyond my clothing budget!
My Little Beauty – Mascara Mademoiselle
Now mascaras are often included within beauty boxes and I have discovered some great ones over the past 18 months, and this one is one of my favourite discoveries. It has a full bristle brush and offers a volumising lash effect and it coats each lash well whilst also adding length. I have used this mascara a lot since receiving it and it doesn’t flake or smudge. Just ensure you don’t have excess product on the brush upon application. This seems like a really big mascara that will last for ages. As an own in-house brand from MY Little Beauty I’m really impressed with it.
Essie Nail Polish
Essie are a massively successful and popular nail polish brand so I was not only pleased to receive this product but I got mega lucky with the colour too as I love gold and metallic nail polishes for a pedicure. I tend to use nail wraps or gels as my manicure as I need something that is slightly more hard-wearing and durable. However I find normal nail polish lasts really well on my toes. I have had this colour on my toes for almost two weeks now and it look super pretty and glam with absolutely no chipping.
Canvas Bag & Magazine
Included in the box is also a lovely drawstring canvas bag with a beautiful heart print design which will be handy to pop into my bag as a mini makeup bag. Glossy mini-mag My Little World which is great to have a flick through and get some inspiration. Apparently there is usually illustrations by Kanako Kuno each month also however not this month.
Erborain Bamboo Shoot Mask
This mask is a Korean Skin Therapy brand. ITs a sheet mask that has a fresh plumping effect and although I am yet to try this I’m very much looking forward to grabbing a quiet few minutes to enjoy this indulgent treat. Korean products seem to be really coming into the beauty world in a big way at the moment, so I’m looking forward to discovering the hype!
So for me my First My Little Box has been a great pleasure and perfect accompaniment to fashion week and I think all the products are beautifully chosen and the presentation of the box is incredible. For me I love the combination of beauty and lifestyle products which makes it stand out as being a real contender amongst other subscription boxes. I’m extremely excited to see what October’s box consists of.
At £14.95 a month including postage I think this box is totally worth investing in on a month by month basis and I’m excited to see what the future brings with this fabulous box.
