This morning the postman delivered something beautiful to my door; the August box from My Little Box. This month is all about girl power so the Friends Box is full of lovely, girly goodness to help you enjoy some girl time with your favourite people.
So, what did I get?
Batiste is a brand that I've always had a lot of time for, and I've used the Hold Me Hairspray before and found it to be really good. It offers a long lasting hold and I found that it didn't make my hair feel stiff or sticky whilst it did so. I always wash my hair to get rid of hairspray so I can't vouch for it brushing out easily but I can say that it is a very good quality product and I'll be happy to have it in my handbag again. A full size 400ml can costs £4.49.
Kadalys is a brand that I haven't heard of before but having done a little googling I have found that they have some very positive reviews. I received the Hydramuse Comforting Cream which is made using a delicious combination of banana and mango butter. It also uses hyaluronic acid to make skin feel as smooth as a baby's booty. I popped some of this on after having lunch in the garden today and it really did feel like instant re-hydration, very soothing! It isn't cheap at 22 euros for 50ml but I think it's going to be one of those products that I end up slightly hooked on.
There were two items this month from My Little Beauty; Summer Lips and a manicure set. Summer Lips is a tinted lip balm offering SPF 15. I have a lot of lip balms so I wasn't overly excited by this. I received a My Little Beauty lip balm a few months ago which I use a lot so I was interested to give this one a try. Sadly I don't find it particularly moisturising, it also has that slight typical lip balm taste which I didn't find the previous balm to have. So over all I don't this will be getting much love from me. I also think that the retail price from My Little Corner is too steep at £12...I do like the flamingo packaging though!
Last but not least is the My Little Beauty Nail Kit. This is very cute. It includes your typical manicure tools; nail file, metal file, nail clippers and hoof and clips closed to keep them safe in your bag. I also think the packaging is lovely. The inside of the case is a soft mint colour and the nail file has the same pattern as the outside of the case. This retails for £7.50 on My Little Corner and I think it makes a cute gift that is worth the money.
Overall, a very strong box this month, the best for a long time, in my opinion. Now I'm excitedly looking forward to seeing whether next months offering is just as good.
