My Little Box - UKThursday, September 18, 2014
Today I received a very exciting 'treasure chest' in the post. It is a 'My Little Box' - a box filled with carefully selected beauty products, fashion accessories and lifestyle bits. My Little Box is originally from France (it's about 3 years old) and only now have they have launched it in the UK. As a tribute, this months theme is Paris and the box is called 'My Little Parisienne Box'. I subscribed for £11 + £3.95 P&P and I am really happy, as it is amazing on the outside and on the inside.
This little sticker was on the inside. A lovely message which goes well with the box!
This is how it looks. Beautiful illustration!
An illustrated piece of card by Kanako - Each month the box is themed and designed by their in-house illustrator Kanako.
The first 10 pages in the notebook are about their story - who they are and what to expect in future boxes.
A Parisienne Girl illustrated laptop sleeve - I am a bit sad as I can not use it as a laptop sleeve. My Sony Vaio is a bit too big for this case. My boyfriend's Mac laptop fits perfectly but I doubt he will use it!
A Drawstring Bag including 3 beauty products.
A 30ml Laura Mercier Foundation Primer - This is a lightweight, water based gel that creates the perfect canvas for makeup application formulated for oily, sensitive and acne-prone skins. This gel forms an even, invisible layer that acts as a buffer to outside elements, expertly holding foundation for longer wear and keeping cosmetics from being absorbed into the skin. It can be also used alone to give a fresh and natural glow to naked skin.
A 10ml Nuxe Multi Purpose Dry Oil (face, body, hair) - Loved by models and beauty insiders the world over, the Nuxe Huile Prodigieuse Multi-Usage Dry Oil infuses the skin and the hair with moisture. It is lightweight and made up of natural origin ingredients with a high concentration of precious plant oils, including borage, sweet almond, hazelnut, St. John's wort, camellia, and macadamia. It is easily-absorbed and leaves skin feeling soft, supple and hydrated, with a comfortable dry touch finish. The hair looks glossy, lustrous and feels manageable.
A My Little Beauty Stylo Lumière (highlighter) - It has a velvety texture and is perfect as a concealer or can be also used on/around eyes. It is water proof and really easy to apply. This highlighter can be a eyeshadow primer or a quick foundation fixer!
