Well, this is a first for Wishing For Chanel! Though I love trying out new products, beauty buys are always an investment for me to try because I really want to use it. So, the hit or miss factor of beauty boxes can be a little daunting to me, despite being sorely tempting just to have the everything in them.
When I saw reviews for My Little Box creeping around the blogsphere, I started to change my mind and eventually signed up. Yes, it’s a beauty subscription box and you do get some great products in there, but they also include a lifestyle/fashion accessories, a curated magazine and a pretty print.
I was lucky enough to just about snag their October box for myself, so here’s a little peak inside…
First up the beauty bits. Each month the box will include one of their own products from their beauty range, My Little Beauty. October’s box includes a pretty little bottle of micellar water, which I’ve already tested out and have found it to work just as well as my Garnier micellar water and also has a lovely scent of aloe vera to it too – it’s also perfectly timed, as I’m starting to run out of my Garnier bottle. Also inside is a handy travel sized can of Kerastase hairspray (in ‘laque noir’) and a decent sample sized tube of L’Occitane hand cream with a gorgeous smelling ‘vanilla’ scent.
With the box curated by Diane Von Furstenberg, the first little fashion accessory inside is a cute little ‘kiss from Diane’ brooch.
And, of course, the accessory everyone seems to be talking about is the DVF scarf. There are three different designs circling around but I managed to get the lovely bold red, pink and purple leopard print one – which matches the little illustration print that also comes inside the box. Speaking of the illustration, I love the quote on this one. It’s displayed very proudly on my wardrobe door now :)
What do you guys think of the October ‘My Little Box’?
