I have been subscribed to various beauty boxes over the past couple of years and I always get excited when a new one comes on to the market. I heard about My Little Box on Fleur De Force’s blog (you can read her post here). I thought it looked different from other boxes as it not only includes beauty items, it also includes fashion, stationary and lifestyle items. So I decided to sign up.
My first box arrived today. It is the My Little Parisienne Box.
The first thing I noticed was how simple but pretty the box is. It is about the same size as a Glossybox and is nice a sturdy to protect the items inside. When you first open the box, all of the items are kept together with a white ribbon with ‘My Little Box’ printed over it. On the top is a little card that reads ‘Why Paris? Paris needs no reason. Paris is its own reason.” – very true.
Then there are some little Paris themed stickers that they suggest you can stick on your fridge, computer, phone, notebook or window. I am not sure what I am going to do with these but I am sure I will find some use for them.
The first item I received in the box is a notebook. At the front of the notebook there are a few pages explaining the story of My Little Box. The rest of the pages in the notebook are plain so I think I might use this to plan blog post and YouTube videos. It will look cute sat on my desk.
The second item is a laptop sleeve. It is the perfect size for my 13″ MacBook Pro. I am really glad I received this because I have a laptop bag, but not something I can use to protect my laptop if I want to carry it in a different bag.
Now on to the beauty samples. They all came in a cotton drawstring pouch with ‘My Little Box’ and bows printed on it. The first is the Laura Mercier Foundation Primer. I have previously received a sample of the radiance primer and enjoyed using it so I am intrigued to see if the original formula is as good.
The second beauty sample is the Nuxe Huile Prodigieuse. This is a dry multipurpose oil that can be used on hair, body or face. I already have a sample of this but I have not tried it yet. I have heard good things about this oil so I will make it my mission this month to try it.
The third and final beauty item is a product from the My Little Beauty range. It is the Stylo Lumiére, a highlighting pen similar to the YSL Touche Éclat. I am excited to try this as the YSL pen has gone up in price and I am not sure if I can justify the price anymore, unless I can get it discounted somewhere. Maybe I will do a comparison of the two products.
The My Little Box is £11 (plus £3.95) a month and overall I feel this is definitely worth the money and I will continue with my subscription. You can find out more about the box and sign up here.
