I was so excited when I found out that Fleur from Fleur De Force had teamed up with My Little Box to create their December box. I have loved all of the boxes I have received so far so I knew I would like this one, but that fact that one of my favourite bloggers was involved in creating this box confirmed that I would love it.
Firstly, how beautiful does Fleur look on the cover of My Little World. Secondly, look at all of the amazing goodies that came in this box. I will start with the beauty products. First up is the Cowshed Invigorating Body Lotion which contains ginger, rosemary and lemongrass essential oils. I have never tried a product from Cowshed before so I am eager to give this a try. Also I love the smell of ginger and when I opened the body lotion that was the main scent I could smell. Next is the L’Occitane Precious Cream which claims to reduce the appearance of lines and wrinkles and it has anti-aging properties. I haven’t had much luck with L’Occitane face products in the past, they have broken me out, but I am going to give it a go and see if it works for me – not that I need anti-agin products just yet. The final beauty product is from the My Little Box’s own brand My Little Beauty. It is a lipstick in a pinky red shade, it doesn’t have a shade number or name unfortunately. When I swatched this on the back of my hand it reminded me so much of my YSL Rouge Volupté Sheer Candy in Luscious Cherry. I quickly grabbed the YSL out of my draw and swatched it next to the My Little Box lipstick and they are remarkably similar, Luscious Cherry is more red and the My Little Box is more pink.
Now onto the other goodies that came in this box. Fleur posts DIY videos on her YouTube channel so I did wonder if there would be any crafty type items in the box, and I was pleased when I saw there was. The first is a little envelope containing stickers in different shapes that you could used to customise presents or anything you like really. The second is a bobbin with black and white stripy yarn, this would be great for tying around Christmas presents or to use with the next item which are gift tags that come in a variety of designs.
The final product in the box was in the box marked ‘Present for You’. When I opened it I thought it was some gloves, but when I unfolded the time I saw it was a grey knitted headband. I love wearing these during the colder months as they keep your ears warm without making your head too warm or giving you hat hair. I think the grey will go well with my red hair and the wool also has little gold sparkles in so it looks quite festive.
Overall I am really pleased with this box and I think it is great value for money. I think Fleur and the team at My Little Box did a great job and I hope there will be another collaboration in the future.
