After a few months of being unsure about continuing my subscription to Glossybox, I finally decided to take action and scout around and see what other monthly subscription were available! Although I did say I enjoyed the last two Glossyboxes, I'm always a little unsure on a few of their products or if I'm going to like the next box at all and I know that's the idea of these sorts of boxes, but I just think that maybe it's £10 I could be spending better somewhere else.
After doing a bit of research though I decided on trying out The Little Box subscription and a few weeks back there was a special 10% off offer on their My Little App so of course I couldn't say no to ordering! After about 2 weeks my parcel finally came and I couldn't wait to get home and rip it open to see all my goodies.
As soon as I opened the package and saw that I'd got the Frenchie box, I couldn't believe how lucky I was. Since visiting Paris last year, I've become a little obsessed with all things Paris! When opening the box itself, you're first greeted with cute little cards and magazine explaining what's in this months box and why. Underneath that were two small boxes and a fabric drawstring bag containing my make-up goodies.
In the first box was a cute little pot full of inspirational quotes made to help you through your day. Each little quote was rolled up The next box contained probably my most favourite part of this box, a smart phone case. My Little Box has teamed up with Ines de la Fressange (don't worry, I'd have no idea either if it wasn't for the handy info card included in the box!) to create this cute mini pouch where you can keep your bank cards, tickets as well as your mobile. This will be so handy when I go to the gym as I can slot my gym membership card in the pocket as well as my phone and iPod!
Next in my box was the drawstring bag which contained my 4 beauty goodies. Now Glossy box are all about their beauty products so I was wondering if My Little Box could compare and really I think they did.
First up was the My Little Beauty Embellisseur which apparently provides a light face tint for girls who are on-the-go. The anti-oxidant rich edelweiss extracts will protect skin and leave it feeling soft and smooth, so really what more could you want? Next in the bag was the L'Oreal Brow Artist Plumper. I really enjoyed using the gel formula products for my eye brows so I was quite pleased to see I could add another one to my collection. I quickly gave it a test when I opened the box and I was really impressed with how amazing it made my brows look!
One of "those" products that I've always wanted but never brought was next in my box so I really couldn't believe my luck when I opened it up and it was sat there staring at me! As sad as it sounds, it was a box of oil blotting paper! Every girls needs this from time to time and mine is definitely after a gruelling shift at work. These will be going straight into my handbag for tomorrow so thank you so much My Little Box! Last product is the By Terry Kohl eye pencil in Bronze Generation - Ooooh. At first I thought it was a simple bronze eye pencil, but it's actually black with gold glitter. Personally although I think it's absolutely fab, I don't think I'll wear it but it's always great to keep for any special nights out!
Apart from the box being themed around Ines de la Fressange and there being a few French colour I'd have preferred more French products to be included in this box but maybe I'm just comparing it to the Stars and Stripes Glossybox back in July last year where all products were from the USA. Either way I liked the box but I'm still undecided on Glossybox. Maybe next month?
What do you think about the My Little Frenchie Box?
