Review | My Little Box...

I remember a while back searching for beauty boxes and coming across My Little Box, I instantly fell in love with the packaging and was pretty crushed when I found out that we couldn't subscribe to it here in England, it was one of those moments where I wished I Lived in France, just so I could subscribe to this box, though living in Paris is what dreams are made of! So you can only imagine my excitement when last month My Little Box did a little hop, skip and jump over the pond to the UK! I found out pretty late on in the month about their new diversification, however it took very little consideration before I decided to subscribe and my first little box was on its way...

For those of you who are not yet familiar with the concept My Little Box is a monthly subscription box costing £11 per month plus £3.95 p&p with not only beauty products but accessories too! Each box will include:

- Must-have beauty products (including one from 
their own in-house beauty range, My Little Beauty) 
- Fashion and lifestyle accessories 
- Their magazine (My Little World) 
- Illustrated goodies by Kanako 
- And other surprises… 

Finding out late resulted in me only receiving my box last week and I couldn't wait that long without having a sneak peek, so I already knew what I would be receiving and I have to say I was already in love with this box before it received it!


I love the style of this box, it has such a stereotypical Parisienne picture and theme, I love that everything is white, if you didn't know, I am obsessed with white, it looks so cute yet modern and I can't wait to put them to good use afterwards, I'm thinking decorative boxes on shelves or makeup storage.


I love this print so much, I'm thinking of framing it and putting it on my desk as a little pick-me-up/ inspirational kind of thing as it's the next destination on my travel list, who doesn't want to go to Paris?!



Being a complete stationary geek, I have so many unused notebooks, I was so happy to receive these pieces in my box, the 'my little carnet' which translates as 'my little notebook' features an insight into the company and then goes on to a blank paper, perfect for keeping on my desk for any mid-blogging ideas and/or doodles. I'm not entirely sure what I will do with the stickers yet but I'm sure I'll find a use for them soon!


'Geek is the new sexy' so of course there is a laptop cover, again I love the parisienne design, however it isn't an average sized laptop cover, I have heard people complain because it's too small for their laptop and too big for a tablet but I'm hoping it will fit my netbook, so I'm excited to try that out when it's fixed.


I was really happy with the beauty items I received this month, My Little Box work with some really good partners such as Benefit, By Terry, Estee Lauder, Glamglow and Keihls to name just a few and I love the bow print bag they come in!

I have tried a Nuxe oil before and I have to say I really love the smell of them, they have quite a strong, distinctive smell that lingers on the skin for hours so this handy 10ml size is perfect for keeping in your handbag on nights out if you don't have any mini perfumes, allowing you to touch up any dry areas of skin whilst keeping you smelling sweet.

I adore Laura Mercier products and I have always wanted to try one of their primers but have never actually got round to purchasing one so I loved that this month's box featured one. This sample is a generous 30ml so I should definitely know whether or not I want to repurchase this by the time I have finished it. So far, so good!

And then a little treat in the form of a Stylo Lumiere from My Little Box's very own beauty brand, My Little Beauty. This concealer pen is the perfect shade for brightening under eyes and the perfect size for taking along with you.

I love the concept of this box , that each month brings a different theme and the variety of gifts available,  I am seriously excited for the next one and it's due pretty soon, I'm not sure I can contain my excitement...

Will you be subscribing to My Little Box?
