My Little Bubble Box | Review




I have had so many beauty subscription boxes since I discovered the world of beauty blogging but it's not often that I find one that consistently amazes me, month after month but somehow My Little Box just seem to get it right each and every time! 

I did have to cancel my subscription after Decembers box due to my maternity money stopping (sobs) and Ems needs being a priority in the financial department, I mean, how quickly do kids grow?! However I received an email a couple of months back that offered me 2 extra items for the next 3 months if I signed back up and Dan offered to treat me! He's a keeper for sure!

This months box is a lot quirkier than usual, I adore My Little Box for their sophistication and Pinterest worthy style however this months box took a completely different turn and has a fun element to it. Upon first opening the box, I wasn't sure if I was actually going to like it but I was pleasantly surprised to see that I loved each and every item in the box including my two extra items -

nat & nin card holder

I was seriously impressed to see this gorgeous brown leather card holder as one of my extras this month, it's such a gorgeous accessory and is perfect for putting your card and a little cash in for those times when you don't want to carry your whole purse because if yours is anything like mine, it's like a freakin work out just having that in my handbag let alone anything else!

My Little Beauty Energising Spray

This gorgeous energising spray is a product that I received in a box last year and it became an absolute lifesaver during last summer when I was pregnant! I carried this everywhere with me and it was so nice to have to hand to be able to just spritz on my face to cool down during the hot weather and I even took it in my hospital bag so this is a little nostalgic for me and I'm so glad I have it back in my life! 

Onto the box....

Beauty Bubble Makeup Applicator Sponge worth £8

I love beauty blenders for applying foundation, they beat foundation brushes hands down, so I was amazed to see this in this months box! This little beauty promises to give a 'haute couture finish to even the most bog-standard foundation' and I have to say I have been loving this! I can't say that I will be replacing my Real Techniques miracle complexion sponge with it any time soon but I have really been enjoying trying this out! It actually blends foundation really well which I was quite surprised about, however it's quite firm and I like quite a soft sponge as I dab my foundation at super speed (I have a child now ya know?!) and this can be a little rough when doing so.

Happy Hair Day Hairbrush worth £13

I love the retro design of this brush and that it promises 'no more greasy roots' 'diva worthy volume' and ' luscious, keratin softened locks' that are lovingly detangled, what more could you ask for?! This has been a firm favourite and it even gets the thumbs up from Emme ( who needs expensive toys?!)

Bubble Blush Lip and Cheek Tint

I'm not the biggest fan of tints, to be honest, I've never really got on with them too well, however this Bubble blush lip and cheek tint was actually a nice little addition to this box! I love the smell of this product, theme appropriate bubblegum scented of course and I've actually worn this on my lips already, this is quite sheer, which is the exact reason I like it, as its buildable! Most tints I find are way too dark and require far too much effort to blend, however with this one, you are able to control the level of colour by simply applying, blending and layering as desired.

Garancia Pschitt Magique Nouvelle Peau €14.80/£11.86

There's something about a facial peel that I find so intriguing yet I haven't actually tried one yet! A facial peel is designed to remove dead skin cells using an acid solution in order for new skin cells to grow resulting in healthier looking skin. This one by Garancia 'smoothes, brightens and revives skin for a glow that's downright otherworldly' I haven't gotten around to using this just yet but this product has me all sorts of excited!

Givenchy Noir Couture Volume Mascara - Mini (Full Size RRP £25)

I love when beauty boxes have a high end branded product in, after all they're about trying products out and it's nice to try out an expensive product before handing over your life savings! This mascara features a uniquely shaped two-tone brush with white bristles either side of the brush,designed to 'bring sleek definition to lacklustre eyelashes' and black bristles in the middle designed to add volume! The packaging is simply gorgeous and that alone would make me buy this product without the outstanding results, who knew my lashes could look so good?!

What did you think to this months My Little Box?
