Little-Known Box is a luxurious subscription beauty box, and each month you will receive 5-6 products to discover, try and enjoy in the comfort of your own home. As well as monthly subscription boxes, Little-Known Box also offer gift subscriptions and one-off boxes, so there are multiple ways in which to try it out.
I recently received the February 2017 edition, which includes six wonderful beauty and skincare products, which came packaged wonderfully in a sleek black and gold box, so let’s delve in…
Firstly, I received the Eco Care Organic Facial Wipes (Full Size), which are worth £4.99. These are organic facial wipes, and I have them in the Soothing Rose & Chamomile edition, which is perfect for my dry skin. The wipes contain a premium hand-crafted cleanser which is naturally rich in moisture, to help give you silky, healthy skin. I love facial wipes for initially removing my makeup before I use a cleanser, so these will definitely get used.
Possibly my favourite product in this month’s box is the Miss Patisseries Cupcake Bath Melt (Full Size), which retails at £3. Miss Patisserie is a company based in South Wales and produces the cutest looking bath products. The Bath Melt came individually packaged in a lovely little gift box, and the cupcake itself comes in a little bun case, and the melt is sprinkled with glitter, and has a beautiful flower sat at the top of it. I adore bath products, and so this will definitely be getting used this evening, although it can be reused, by taking it out of the bath after use, and popping it on a soap dish until the next time you use it.
A brand I haven’t come across before is Medusa’s Makeup, and in this box you receive the Medusa’s Makeup Witch Lash Mascara (Full Size), worth £9.20. This is an American brand, and I love getting the chance to discover new brands and products. The Witch Lash Mascara is a lengthening and volumising mascara, with a flexible rubber bristled brush, and the best thing about it is that the brand is cruelty free and vegan friendly – excellent cosmetics products, that are kind and caring.
I have tried Monu Skincare products before, and have loved them, so it was great to see one of their products in the box. You receive the Monu Skin Soothing Touch Recovery Balm (25ml, Half Size), and the full sized price is normally £27.50, so at half size, you are still getting £13.75 worth of product. If you suffer from dry, sensitive skin, then you will love this Recovery Balm, as it is suitable for all skin types and can be used as a moisturiser to calm stressed skin and provide the skin with lots of healthy nourishment.
Next up, we have the Fruu Mango Lip Balm (Full Size), worth £2.99, and you absolutely cannot go wrong with a lip balm! This organic brand hand makes their Lip Balms, and they come in a variety of juicy, fruity flavours. I have the Mango flavour, which has been made with mango, aloe vera, coconut and avocado to give my lips a boost of goodness and keep them well moisturised.
The Bonus product in this box, is the Friendly Soap Hair & Body Bar (Travel Size), worth £1.99. Friendly Soap create natural handmade products that are free from SLS, paragons and palm oil, and they are cruelty free, vegan friendly and suitable for sensitive skin. My Hair and Body Bar us scented with Lavender and Geranium, and as lavender is one of my favourite fragrances, I love the smell of this. I also think travel sized soaps are so handy to have if you are going away for a few days, because some hand soaps can leave my skin really dry and sensitised, but this one will care for my hands a great deal more.
The Little-Known Box costs £14.95, which considering the products retail for £35.92, I am not only getting an absolute bargain, I am also getting the chance to try lots of lovely products and brands which are new to me. You can find out more at Little-Known Box.
