I know in theory beauty boxes tend to be overpriced for the products and you can end up with some weird stuff, but I love the surprise of it, a little present to myself with nice new things to try out. Confession time: I have a secret love and fairly large collection of fancy expensive toilettries (still saving for the amazing £150 moisturiser I once tried) – drawers full of half finished products, a constant urge to buy more because it seems so lovely…and a monthly box to add to the collection! I’ve been through Glossy Box, Birchbox, and the Amarya Beauty Box, and now I’m trying My Little Box. It’s a step away from the natural products of the Amarya box back towards the more make-up and exclusive brands focus of the earlier boxes I tried, but I think I now have enough organic handcreams to last until at least next year. And my first box arrived today!
I was excited to receive this box, it’s a mix of cosmetics, toilettries and accessories that makes it fun to unwrap, as well as an illustrated quote and a little magazine. There’s several lovely items this month and I’m sure I’ll try out everything – the body milk is going glamping with me this weekend and I’m desperately thinking of what I can store in the pretty bag. As I’m not a huge make-up user it might not be the best option for me long term, but I’ll keep enjoying my monthly surprises until i find an even more exciting box to receive 🙂
