Happy Easter – hope your day and Easter break going well.
I received my April 2017 My Little Box late last week. This month’s theme is ‘Garden’, perfect theme for this time of year – the Illustrated box, cards, packaging is all coordinated perfectly in line with this month’s theme as always (however no glossy My Little Box booklet this month either). All came in a box again this month, loved the bag last month and hope we have more bags in the future, even a few times a year. As advised before it is one of my favourite monthly subscription boxes and costs £14.95 (inclusive of p&p) per month (always check to see if any offers on first, if thinking of subscribing).
Included in this months box are:
‘My Little Box’ Patterned Bandana –Green / Navy/ White cotton patterned scarf – can be worn a number of ways, hair, neck, on your bag / belt – suggested styles are included on the front of the paper packaging as well;
‘My Little Box’ Magnetic Shopping List Notebook – a useful addition and as it is magnetic if you position it somewhere in sight, it will be handy when you need to write those lists, few useful recipes also included;
‘My Little Box’ Fruit Shake Infuser Bottle – another useful addition – fashionable water bottle – intrigued as fruit section with perforations included within bottle to flavour your water, have not used it yet but interested to see how in works in practice;
Mixa Sensitive Skin Expert Restoring Body Lotion for V Dry Skin– 250 ml (full size) – Never heard of this brand before and as I use body lotions / creams on a daily basis happy to see this included – has a creamy consistency and does leave skin hydrated and soft however the fragrance slightly too much for me initially, hard to say what the fragrance is – states is fast absorbing with no parabens;
My Little Beauty Vitamin Shot Face Scrub– 75ml (full size) – has an orange jelly consistency with micro beads – hardly any fragrance and you massage into moistened skin 1-2 times a week, concentrating on t zone and then rinse – I found it did leave my skin feeling and looking fresher;
My Little Beauty Summer Lips SPF 15 – 3.5g (full size) – another My Little Beauty product this month, leaves a coral / red sheen to your lips – sheer coverage – however good it has an SPF;
Extras included this month is a ‘Garden to Table’ – seasonable vegetable list and a sample packet of ‘Ape’ Crunchy Coconut Bites – three ‘bites’ in the packet – crispy coconut biscuit /snacks which are tasty if you like coconut – also states high in fibre and gluten free.
As always I would recommend subscribing to this box as it is still one of my favourite subscription boxes. However although this months box was still good value and included different products, it is probably one of my least favourite My Little Boxes to date – also a lot of skincare this month and two My Little Beauty items (personally think one My Little Beauty product is enough) – prefer when different brands are included, hoping next month has more variety.
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 of it?
If you are not already a follower would love you to follow my blog too – would mean a lot.
Thank you – take care.
