My Little Box UK Christmas / DecemberSunday, December 21, 2014
This month My Little Box has teamed up with fashion and beauty blogger/vlogger Fleur De Force for their December edition. The outside of the box looks super girly and I think it is one of my favourites so far!
The box includes several Christmas-related goodies and 3 beauty products.
I am really happy with this cute little knitted hairband. The last time I wore a hairband was years ago when I was in primary school. It brings back lot of memories and I prefer this grey colour for a more modest look. It is very well made and has a bit of shiny thread woven in making it look a bit seasonal. I am definitely going to wear it - I never say no to accessories!
The box included several gift wrapping essentials like patterned tape, gift tags and string. I think it is a lovely idea for those who love wrapping presents for Christmas. I am probably going to use them as I still have a few presents left to wrap!
This months My Little Word magazine is filled with inspiring women, Christmas DIY ideas, make up tutorials, recipes and an interview with UK blogger Fleur from Fleur De Force.
Like all of the other boxes, Kanako has illustrated another card for Christmas with a lovely message at the top.
Each month the box includes 3 beauty products. This time we've got a body lotion, face cream and a lipstick.
Cowshed Wild Cow Invigorating Body Lotion with essential oils of lemongrass, ginger and rosemary sounds so Christmasy! I have heard a lot about this brand and I am happy to get my hands on one of their products. Cowshed body lotion refreshes and warms the skin, awakens the senses and sharpens the mind. All of the natural ingredients make it easily absorbed, leaving the skin silky smooth and ready for the party season! The bottle is cute and very simple. 100 ml for £18
L'Occitane Immortelle Precious Cream is ideal for normal to dry skin. It is a rich, smooth moisturiser which visibly corrects deep wrinkles and helps restore firmness to the skin. The combination of organic immortelle essential oil and organic immortelle cell extracts offers smoother, firmer and protected skin. It is quite a pricy product, £45 for 50ml (mine is a sample size of 15). I am probably giving it away - I don't think it suits my skin type.
My Little Beauty team created a lipstick shade that really does suit all - berry red. The texture is quite creamy and it looks lighter on the lips than I thought it would. The packaging feels quite cheap - made from cardboard instead of plastic - but will be helping the environment!
Overall, I am not the biggest fan of the December box. I love the hairband as it goes well with my style and I am really pleased with the Cowshed body lotion but I guess I just had higher hopes for this month.
I still think My Little Box is the best subscription box I have tried - I can't wait what they have for us for next year!
