My Little ‘Rouje’ Box – September 2017

Hi Everyone

Monday again – hope you all had a great weekend but it just goes past too quickly.

I received the September 2017 My Little Box on Saturday, bit later this month.   The theme for this month’s box is  La Vie En Rouje’   – As always the box, cards, print, packaging coordinated perfectly in line with the theme but missing the lovely ‘quote’ sticker inside this month’s box again.     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).

Although a slightly ‘plainer’ design this month still love it, v ‘chic’ and the red / cream theme v in fashion at the moment as well.  There also is a bigger booklet / type magazine included this month which I like.


 Included in this months box are:  


A ‘My Little Box’ Rouje T-Shirt –  this is a fine white cotton t-shirt with Les filles en Rouje embossed on front – I think is a S/M t-shirt and although it does fit me will not be suitable for everyone –  I am happy to see this included as I cannot have enough white t-shirts perfect with jeans, skirts, trousers tucked in or worn out;

No ‘My Little Box’ drawstring pouch again this month instead the following three ‘beauty’ items came in a red and cream ‘My Little Box – Bons baisers de Jeanne’ patterned paper bag:

My Little Beauty Rouge Lipstick (FULL SIZE)  love the design on the packaging and it is a lovely red  lipstick with blue undertone.  Does feel nice on the lips, lovely colour, although does stain slightly but I find that with most red lipsticks anyway – perfect for this time of year and in line with this months theme;

Nuxe Huile Prodigieuse Multi-Purpose Dry Oil for Face, Body and Hair (Sample Size 10ml) although do like this multi task product (though prefer for hair & body ) think I may have received it in a previous box as well – although still handy size for travelling;

Nuxe Prodigieux Precious Scented Shower Oil (Sample Size 30ml) – Another Nuxe product, one I have tried before and although I do like it not my favourite shower oil but nice for when you have that special night out as has a shimmer as well so perfect to use in combination with the oil above.

As always do like the theme this month and  although still v good value  slightly disappointed again this month with the contents , definitely feel there is something missing compared to the majority of My Little Boxes I have had previously (had similar thoughts last month as well).  As although I do love this months t-shirt and like the My Little Box Lipstick  bit disappointed with the beauty items this month as although it is nice to have coordinating products think it would have been better to include another brand or an additional makeup item.  Also prefer a drawstring bag as I find them so handy for re-using, taking on holidays, carrying items in my handbag, so hoping more will be included in future boxes.   I also  think another ‘accessory’ item would have helped this box as well.  Not my favourite box to date but then my expectations are high from past boxes.

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 later in the week.

Hope you have a great week.

Thank you & take care.

Best Wishes Liz x

    It’s lovely. Very French and beautifully done although I do see your point. It’s slightly on the bland side and personally I’m not so keen on nuxe, even although I know it’s a quality product and I’m not keen on T shirts either. However it is very pretty and well co-ordinated and it definitely manages to be very well put together. Its kind of more st Valentine’s Day than autumn in terms of the box.

      Thank you Susie – yes I do think it is v ‘chic’ this month – compared to a number of their other boxes not as much design detail but I still like it. I agree would be a perfect theme for Valentine’s Day. Yes a lot of thought goes into each months box theme but recently there have been slight changes so maybe there has been staff changes etc. It is still definitely a good value box but I have found previous boxes have been better for me personally. Hope you have a great week- take care & chat soon Liz xx

    I think you do notice when things change even slightly with regular beauty boxes. I just found out that Birchbox are doing an advent calander this year and I didn’t know they did one so that might be exciting. Hope you have a great week too.
