I hope you are all well – so hard to believe it is 31st October already.
I only received my October 2017 My Little Box end of last week, received mine later this month. This month’s box/bag has been created by My Little Box with ASOS – As always the box, cards, print, packaging coordinated perfectly in line with the theme and a beautiful quote is back this month embossed on the inner lid of the outer cardboard box – love this quote and agree with it totally we are all ‘Limited Edition / Special’, we just need reminded from time to time (see above). 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).
This month instead of a box we received a beautiful large patterned gold toned zipped pouch which can be used to store so many different items – I love the design and it is a lovely quality bag. Love this edition this month. No booklet this month instead we got a double-sided card which fits perfectly with theme.
Included in this months ‘bag’ are:
A ‘My Little Box’ ASOS notebook– love this addition as I cannot have too many notebooks and this one is so, so pretty. Pages on one side are lined for your ‘Thoughts’ and other side is plain for your ‘Scribbles – perfect;
No ‘My Little Box’ drawstring smaller pouch again this month – do not mind as the following FOUR ‘beauty’ items came inside the beautiful patterned larger pouch.
My Little Beauty Handcream (50ml) FULL SIZE – love the matching design and again I can never have too many hand creams. This one has a v light fragrance and feels lovely on the skin and sinks in really quickly, no greasy residue – would be perfect for your handbag but would need to use a heavier one at night as although feels good, personally does not keep my hands hydrated enough;
Nude by Nature Perfecting Primer (15ml) – Sample Size – this is an Australian brand and love their packaging. I have tried this primer before and although this is a sample size still large enough sample to see if suitable. It is a quite good primer and a nice base for applying makeup. Although I find it a bit tacky at the beginning, tackiness does gradually disappear after few minutes as it sinks into your skin. Does leave a nice glow to the skin but not sure about the perfecting element but will still use, just not sure would purchase;
Pureheals Propolis Rose Callus Sheet Mask – Moisturising & Shiny – always happy when I see a sheet mask included, especially when I have never tried it before. I have still to try this mask but sounds good, just not sure about the Rose element but hopefully not too rose fragranced. It states; their sheet masks have the added benefit of a three-layer technology that locks maximum levels of moisture into your skin – look forward to trying this weekend and if good will post a short review; and
ASOS Black Liquid Liner Full Size £6 – so pleased to see this included as had recently seen that ASOS had launched their own beauty products and they were on my list to purchase so delighted first item I got to try is the eyeliner one of my favourite makeup items. Love the simple black and pink packaging and felt-tip applicator makes it so easy to apply – lovely black line which I find lasts pretty well does smudge a bit initially but need to try for a longer period of time to confirm how good it is, as one thing I really dislike is looking in the mirror and finding your eyeliner is not where is should be!
We also received a little note-book 31 days off ‘Tone Up Your Creativity ideas’ – love the first ‘idea’ I seen below – which is so true.
I am delighted with this month’s box / bag – love this new addition. Also love all the products this month, four beauty items as well – personally a v good month for me. Excellent value and although maybe another accessory item would have been nice I do not mind as v pleased with what I got. Although I am still hoping maybe next month / December we get either a scarf, gloves, socks etc as one of the accessory items to match the ‘season’.
Any queries / comments please let me know, also if you received this months ‘bag’ 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 tomorrow, later in the week
Enjoy today and the rest of the week.
Thank you & take care.
