Delighted as received my December My Little Box today – one of my favourite monthly subscription boxes which costs £14.95 (inclusive of p&p) per month. This month’s theme is ‘Christmas’ simple and perfect for this time of year and I adore the way the box, booklets, packaging is all coordinated perfectly in line with this month’s theme. As I have only received the box today have not got a chance to try any of the items properly but wanted to let you see what I received as soon as possible.
As always this month’s box contained the usual high quality glossy ‘My Little World’ booklet, additional product information cards, picture card the ‘My Little Box’ cloth drawstring bag, (which contains the three to four beauty / skincare products usually three – one of which is a My Little Box item), two accessory items and a beautiful card. An extra treat this month is the red and white rock stick which was wrapped beautifully on the front of the box so first impressions v good. Included in this months box are:
Lou Yetu Bijoux Espiegles Cuff Bangle – (no value given) –a beautiful goldtone open cuff with a green trim in the middle – perfect size and adjustable – came in a drawstring bag – although not overly excited by this cuff still happy included in box and will wear it;
Delices De Noel Travel Candle in Gingerbread (no value given) –Comes in a beautiful presentation box with a lid – smells exactly of Gingerbread so perfect addition for this months box;
Courreges Hyperbole Eau de Parfum–travel size spray– 5 ml – full size 50 ml -72 Euro – was not sure when I first sprayed it as bit strong at first but then settles so now will definitely try it to see if it is for me – it is a sweet fragrance with a slight spice undertone and also matches the theme perfectly this month.
Palmers Cocoa Butter Formula FlipBalm in Juicy Watermelon– Full Size – £4.99 – have not opened as was lucky and had received this product for free earlier in the month – it is handy product for your bag and has a flip top opening / closure – leaves lips v hydrated and although the smell of the watermelon is refreshing I find it just too much when I apply to my lips but would still recommend trying as long as you are not put off with strong smells/tastes;
My Little Beauty ‘Christmas Melody Smoky Eyes Duo– full size – again no value given (prefer when all the value of items are included on the information cards) – Two autumnal colours – shades are Shimmery Taupe and Shade – have a good colour pay out, the taupe shade is buildable but has a beautiful subtle sheen and perfect for this time of the year and should be a good duo for a smoky eye look and packaging also matches this month’s theme perfectly as well.
Two extras were included this month a beautiful tin of Kusmi Tea 25g (200g is £24.80) and a small sample jar of Tiptree Salted Caramel Spread – 210g – £2.49 (210g is £2.49)
Update on missing third item from my November 2016 – not sure what should have been included – however was delighted as received a Sephora Lip gloss as the replacement item prior to the end of November – was v happy with replacement as had never tried Sephora lip glosses before, not overly sticky and gives a natural sheen to the lips.
I would definitely recommend subscribing to this box because as always it is still one of my favourite subscription boxes. I love the way the items this month fit perfectly with this time of year and all matched perfectly with the theme this month as well – it is a ‘cosy comforting’ box this month and although some people might not find the contents v exciting, and I agree they might not be, however I am happy with them and will use them all.
Any queries / comments please let me know and if you would like a separate review on any of the above products just let me know. Also if you received this months box would love to know what you thought, what were your favourite items this month?
If you are not already a follower would love you to follow my blog too – would mean a lot.
