Well after a longer wait than usual for this month’s box due to some sort of supply issue I finally received My Little Box a week or so ago. I have to say that it has all the usual charm of their previous offerings so it was worth the wait!
The box contains a hair, make up and beauty product plus an accessory and some quirky lifestyle pieces to put a smile on your face. Let’s take a closer look:
Kérastase Smoothing Taming Milk
L’Oréal Kérastase is I tried and trusted haircare brand and an anti-frizz/humidity taming milk is just the thing for balmy summer days when your hair just doesn’t want to cooperate! Simply smooth through the length of towel dried hair then blow dry as usual to provide a layer of heat protection as well as dramatically reducing blow drying time and leaving your hair smoother and less susceptible to humidity. Miraculous! My naturally fine and curly hair is usually a nightmare in warm, dry weather so I eagerly gave this a go. It made my hair noticeably smoother and really did cut down on drying time! The remainder of this 50ml sample will definitely be coming on holiday with me next month!
Loved by Sarah Lavoine Nail Polish
No summery box would be complete without a nail polish in a dreamy, bright shade and this Ocean Blue one is beautiful. In keeping with the Riviera box theme and specially designed by box collaborator Sarah Lavoine (who also designed the sunnies) this polish will add a fresh, nautical look to your finger or toenails. The polish is easy to apply and gives good coverage with a single coat so it could be a time saver if you leave your nails to the last minute before a trip away! My only problem at the moment is that I have received so many gorgeous polishes lately. It’ll be tough to decide which shade to go for when I go off on my hols!
My Little Beauty Sailor Scrub
What better product to get your skin ready for those flesh baring summer outfits than a body scrub? This generous sized bottle from My Little Box’s own brand My Little Beauty has you covered. I will be using this once or twice a week after showering to ensure that any dry and dead skin is exfoliated away, leaving a smooth and even surface for tanning!
Sarah Lavoine Sunglasses and Plant Pot covers
The quality of these sunglasses goes beyond the usual magazine freebie or cheap Primark pair. They are a really chic shape, have a nice deep purple rather than black plastic frame and have a nice dark lens for complete sun protection. They also come with their own cleaning cloth which is handy if like me you can never seem to find one when you need it! I was really impressed with them and wouldn’t hesitate to wear them, were it not for the fact that I need prescription sunglasses due to my poor eyesight. I’ll definitely be passing them on to a friend though!
The plant pot covers are definitely one of the more unusual products that I have seen in my boxes! Saying that though, its all part of My Little Box’s charm and what sets them apart from other subscription services in my opinion. The idea is to jazz up your plants by placing the boring plastic pot inside one of these cute watertight covers. I think its a sweet idea and if anyone has beachy themed decor in their bathroom or conservatory then these would fit in perfectly. You could also use them for covering other things such as pencil pots. I have an idea of getting a pot for all of my make up brushes and covering it with the large cover to add a bit of interest to my dressing table.
