My Little Box - March

My Little Box
So far I've received five My Little Subscription Boxes, I've been really impressed with the variety of beauty and lifestyle surprises received. If you haven't read my earlier posts reviewing the first three boxes have a look here and here

Each month the My Little Box takes on a different theme. March's theme was that of bubbles, the box and all the items enclosed embraced all things big, bubbly and bright. 
My Little Box
The box design screams the eighties, retro roller-skates, pastel colours, backcombed hair and LA Gear trainers to me. 

Contained in the box was a sample size Givenchy's Noir Couture Volume Mascara. The full size comes in blue and black costing £25.

The first thing I noticed on opening the mascara was the innovative brush shape, it might look a little odd but one thing is for sure it definitely adds volume and length. It really helped to plumb and define my lashes.

I loved this sample, it's the perfect size for travelling and has a lovely rich formula adding an intense shade of black. I have been faithful to my Yves Saint Laurent mascara for many years but I will definitely be buying the Givenchy when it runs out.

The next beauty offering you could easily mistake for the Beauty Blender but you would be wrong, this is produced by My Little Corner and will hopefully prove to be its better mini cousin (worth £7). 
Beauty Blender
Whilst this is the perfect size product for travelling, I personally found the density of the sponge too difficult to smoothly apply foundation, even when wet. But I'm sure with a bit of perseverance my technique will improve.   

Next up was Bubble Blush (worth £10), a lovely pink colour that can be used as both a lip and cheek tint. 
Liquid Blush

Now I'm not normally a fan of tints as the consistency is too runny, this however has a lovely creamy consistency and the perfect shade for summer. 

Next up a sample size of the cult soap free cleansing wash Garancia Pschitt Magic
Face wash
This year it celebrates ten years and I can easily see how this is a favourite product of many. As you know I like beauty products that are hassle free and this ticks those boxes, just wet your face pump the soft mouse and gently wash over your face. 

I have nearly used up the whole of this sample and it has done wonders to remove my dead skin and best of all is suitable for my sensitive skin. This is a definite repurchase. 
  
I can never have too many brushes round the house, as I am constantly loosing them. The inclusion of this pastel blue brush was very welcomed (worth £11).

I doubt very much that it will help with the bad hair days but it looks lovely. 

Overall another wonderful box, next month will be the penultimate on the current subscription. The My Little Box is £11 a month plus £3.95 postage and packaging.
