I received my August 2017 My Little Box yesterday – v soon after my July box, as it was late, so delighted to have the August one on time / early. The theme for this month’s box is ‘Wild Summer’ As always the Illustrated box, cards, print, packaging coordinated perfectly in line with the theme. The box costs £14.95 (inclusive of p&p) per month (but as said before always check to see if any offers on first, if thinking of subscribing).
Very colourful box design this month and like it – a festival holiday vibe.
Included in this months box are:
A ‘My Little Box’ Gem Catcher – gold tone triangle for hanging your jewellery on – it is cute and think would be v useful for custom jewellery – string attached for hanging it up;
‘My Little Box’ The Nana Benz Necklace – love that this was included – twisted cord detail at front and dark green plain tight intertwined detail at sides with gold tone magnetic/catch closure – could be worn anytime and also think this has a festival vibe. Would be beautiful with a plain top or dress;
No ‘My Little Box’ drawstring pouch this month instead the following three ‘beauty’ items came in a blue and white ‘My Little Box’ patterned paper bag:
My Little Beauty Blush Me Tender Cream Blush (FULL SIZE) – states is ‘a universally flattering shade that brings subtle warmth to every skin tone’ I agree think this will be good colour for most skin tones as colour is buildable as well – it is a dusky pink / coral colour and although creamy applies with a powder type finish. I wore it yesterday and have it on today and it just gives a natural hint of colour, also lasted really well yesterday. Think I will use this on a regular basis, may also be suitable to dab on the lips as has a stain type finish as well – very pleased with this product;
Essie Nail Lacquer in 324 (Beautiful Dark Cerise Pink Shade) FULL SIZE– pleased to see a full size nail polish included and v happy that I do not have a shade like this is my collection.
Bare Minerals Skinsorials (deluxe sample size 7.5ml) – I already have this product and really enjoy using it (see my earlier review here). This is a good size sample, enough to try the product properly. This was the same sample size I got free to try in-store previously from a Bare Minerals counter when this product was being launched. As I enjoy using this product I am happy to see it included, perfect size to take with me on my holidays. A 20% discount code (SERUM20) also included if you then decide to purchase it – see below;
A printed double sided fold out card with a number of different sayings/quotes was also included (photo below) – think may fold out into something but have not managed it yet – going to try again tonight as do not want to tear it.
Love the theme and design of this month’s box / items and although was slightly disappointed when felt and opened the box as seemed lighter / emptier than usual I really like all the items this month, better for me than last month’s box. Still miss the information booklet and prefer to have a drawstring bag but love the beauty products this month and will use all of them. I still think another ‘accessory’ item may have completed this box but love the necklace so I am happy with all. Definitely one of the better boxes for me based on the contents and hopefully will enjoy next months products the same or even better.
As always would recommend checking out / subscribing to this box if you can as it still one of the beauty boxes I am most excited to receive because of the addition of different accessories each month.
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 v soon.
Thank you – take care.
