My Little Box Beauty & Lifestyle Subscription box review!

Over the last few months, I've been researching subscription boxes.  I've wanted one for ages!  It's like getting a present in the post each month - what's not to love about it!  I was hoping to get one that's under €20 and is just a little bit different to all of the beauty boxes out there.  I finally settled on My Little Box.

My Little Box is a monthly subscription service that contains beauty, fashion and lifestyle.  At £13.95 a month (€15.50 plus Parcel Motel cost as they don't ship to Ireland), it fits within my €20 budget.  This month however, My Little Box was more of a My Little Pouch!

October was a collaboration with Asos which is exciting!  When I opened the box that it was posted in, it had a little inspirational message and gorgeous packaging which I couldn't wait to tear open.



The first thing I saw was the pouch which was created by Asos and My Little Box.



To be honest, when I saw the pouch first, I was a little disappointed.  I wanted to have a box to open to see all my contents, but everything was in the bag.  But thinking about it, the pouch is so much more practical and will 100% be used as a toiletry bag, makeup bag, random bag of stuff, whereas the box would most likely go into the bin.

Next up is a sheet mask from Pureheals.


Pureheals masks have an added benefit of a three layer technology that locks in maximum levels of moisture into your skin.  The mask I got is a rose callus mask which calms the skin, leaving it glowing and gives intense moisture, which is basically everything my skin needs!  This will be going on my face this Saturday night when Strictly is on!

I've just run out of my No7 primer so I was very excited to see this Nude by Nature Perfecting Primer.


Nude by Nature is 100% natural and cruelty free.  The primer is untinted and claims to restore freshness and help fight visible signs of ageing.  The key ingredients are vitamins A and E, Green Tea and Papaya Leaf Extract.  This sounds gorgeous!  The sample size is pretty decent at 15mls and I can't wait to try it out over the next few weeks.

My Little Box also added one of their own branded hand creams.


It's described as "a trio of coconut oil, shea butter and cottonseed and helps to nourish, protect and soften without that icky-sticky texture".  In fairness, who hates that sticky feeling after using a hand cream!  I love how the packaging of the hand cream ties in with the design of the whole box.

The last beauty related item was an Asos Liquid Eyeliner from their new range of cosmetics.


Now in fairness, I'm not the best when it comes to doing eyeliner but I have no excused now not to practice with this!  As it has a fine nib, it claims to make lining your eyes a whole lot easier.  I'll be the judge of that!

Let's get on to the lifestyle part of the box.  The first item that stood out to me was the Thoughts notebook which is too cute.  Who doesn't like a good notebook!




It wasn't until I started looking at it that I realised one side says "Thoughts" with lined pages, and the back says "Scribbles" with blank pages.  Love it!

Last but by no means least are 31 inspiring quotes.  31 days with 31 ideas.



This is such a lovely idea as some days you just need a little boost or a kick up the bum!

And that was my first My Little Box.  I loved it!  I really liked the variety of beauty and lifestyle and I can't wait for November's box already!

You can subscribe to My Little Box here and make sure to use a mail forwarding service like Parcel Motel or Address Pal if you're in Ireland as they don't deliver here yet.
