My Little Box "Friends Box" Review

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.
I've been really impressed with the contents of this months box. I've been trying to decide lately whether to keep my subscription running (mainly because I'm too much of a subscription box fan and have a few monthlies that I get) but the goodies I received today have made me decide to keep it going a while longer.
So, what did I get?

First Up is the item that I was most excited to see in my box. It is a clip on fisheye lens that is compatible with any smartphone. You just clip it on and away you go. I've wanted one of these for a while but never been able to justify buying one so I am beyond happy to finally have one to play with (and believe me, I have already been playing with it! Grace's nose looks huuuge through the lens). The quality is great and the lens cap and carrying pouch mean I can pop it in my handbag without worrying. They're available through My Little Corner online for £12.

Next up was a bag of sweet and salty Propercorn popcorn (which definitely got the fisheye lens treatment!). It made me happy to see this because I have recently had to cut a lot of yummy things out of my diet, yet Propercorn make all their popcorn types gluten and wheat free, meaning that I can still enjoy them all! This was really tasty and didn't make it into any of the other photos because I'm a little piggy and wolfed it down :D You can pick up a full size 30g bag for £1 in all good supermarkets.

This month's box is nice and varied in terms of beauty items.
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.
