I only received the July 2017 My Little Box this week – later than normal but happy that I at least received it in July. The theme for this month’s box is ‘Seashell’- perfect theme for this time of year. As always the Illustrated box, cards, packaging coordinated perfectly in line with the theme. The box costs £14.95 (inclusive of p&p) per month (but as always check to see if any offers on first, if thinking of subscribing).
I love the design/colour of the box this month – reminds me of holiday time. Always like the saying that is included on the inside of the outer cardboard packaging as well. I always remove and put on the underside of the lid (so easy to remove and reapply).
Included in this months box are:
‘My Little Box’ Summer Night Hanging Candle holder and two candles – unusual but that is one of the many things I like about this box finding different and useful items that I may never have seen or used before – states: ‘fancier than a flashlight but more convenient than a campfire these candle holders (plus moonlight) will help illuminate every one of your summer nights’. When I use them may even post a separate review as intrigued;
‘My Little Box’ Sea, Nap & Sun Traveller Pouch Pillow– love that this was included already packed away to take with me on my holidays – handy inflatable beach pillow;
In the beautiful Blue and Cream seashell patterned ‘My Little Box’ drawstring pouch were the following three items:
My Little Beauty Body Scrub ‘Sandy Shore’ 210g (full size) – states ‘contains white Polynesian sand, sea salt crystals ,Tiare Flowers and Seaweed Oils to gently exfoliate skin’. It smells divine and has a soft oily granule texture, feels grainy on the skin but does leave the skin feeling v soft with a beautiful light fragrance. Looking forward to testing this for a longer period of time to see how good the results are;
Qiriness Wrap Radiant Eye Contour Mask 2 patches – never heard of this brand before and as I hope to have a ‘pampering’ session on Sunday, now going to include these in it. States: smooths, boosts radiance, decongests, hydrates and soothes so if they do all this will be impressed. Will post a separate review if one use is impressive;
Institut Karite Paris Shea ‘Rose Mademoiselle’ Hand Cream 30ml – never heard of this French brand before either and although like hand creams, use them regularly the strong rose fragrance is off-putting for me personally so this will be going to a friend who loves rose fragrances in skin care. However I have to say it does feel good and leaves hands feeling soft, hydrated and not greasy so going to check what other fragrances they have;
Two ‘My Little Box’ notelets and envelopes and a seashell sweet (the shell is plastic and although sweet tastes good ( v, v sweet though) v difficult to remove from shell).
Although loved the theme and design of this month’s box / items and liked the items, I feel there is something missing. Maybe that is due to me expecting so much from this box now, as have received so many ‘v good’ boxes in the past. I think if another ‘accessory’ item had have been included and at least one makeup item I would have been more excited/impressed.
As always would still recommend checking out / subscribing to this box if you can as it still remains one of my favourite boxes. I am just hoping next month’s box will be an even better one and at least one makeup item will be included as just so much skin & body care recently.
Any queries / comments please 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. I will have more posts up over the weekend as well.
Thank you – take care and hope you all have a lovely weekend.
