My Little Box | Parisienne Edition


September My Little Box* (£11 + £3.95 p&p)

Sheer excitement hits whenever my postman hands me a parcel from My Little Box* because I know that it's going to be a real treat to open. They have just launched in the UK and I was keeping my fingers firmly crossed that the boxes for us would be as good as the previous French boxes I've been lucky enough to have a look through over the past couple of months.

I shouldn't have even entertained the thought that it would be anything less than delightful though because it's so clear that a lot of love and thought goes into putting the boxes together. It almost feels like opening a surprise parcel from a best friend who you've known for years.



+ Paris inspired stickers - adorable!
+ A sweet illustration - I'll be finding a frame for this asap!
+ A notebook with a few pages of information about how My Little Box started & a whole bunch of plain pages - I'm going to use it as my new blogging notebook.

+ A laptop sleeve - it's the perfect size for a macbook, but not so great if you have a bigger/no laptop. I should be getting a real workspace soon & I think that this will look incredibly cute on my desk. So excited!

+ Laura Mercier Foundation Primer - I've heard rave reviews from so many people!
+ Nuxe Dry Oil - one of my all time favourite oils!
+ Stylo Lumiere - adds a hit of a golden glow. I think I'm going to try using this on my cheekbones underneath my foundation for an added bit of warmth.

Over the last couple of months these boxes, in my opinion, have really raised the bar for subscription services. There's something special about the things they choose to put inside, from the carefully chosen products to the beautifully illustrated little extras. At £14.95 it's a little more expensive than many of the others around, but it's also cheaper than I expected it would be.

  11. For the money I think this box is entirely worth it, especially compared to other boxes I've seen. The content is so cute! I love the laptop sleeve, but unfortunately I'm a desktop user.

  14. These look amazing! I haven't been tempted by any beauty boxes really, as they're all kinda the same now and don't really excite me - however I am genuinely tempted by this one, I love all the little extras and cute illustrations!

  16. The Laura Mercier primer is really lovely, it goes very well with water based foundations! I'm using a sample size of their primer with spf and it works wonderfully with Nars sheer glow <3

  19. I want to subscribe to My Little Box! I think it seems to have the kind of content that I'd love so much more than a pure beauty box - am in love with the laptop case from this month, and the little notebooks and extras you've had every month alongside the carefully curated beauty products. Perhaps one to ask for for my next birthday :)

  20. Absolutely wonderful box of goodies! This is certainly my favourite of the ones I have seen. They've definitely come along way since the first box I heard of 'Glossybox'. That laptop sleeve is right up my street.

    Thanks for your kind words regarding the course, I'm a little late to the comment as I've been rather busy so sorry about that, definitely need better time managing skills. Sweet new layout too by the way :)

  30. After having pretty bad experiences with Glossybox, I think this is going to be my next box subscription, it's just too cute not too try it out! It's just incredibly original and there's just this little quirkiness about the brand I can't quite forget!

  32. this is interesting. I've just finished writing my review (to be published later this week), while I didn't love it all I was certainly happy with most of it. And looking at the July and August boxes here, I think I was right in my decision to keep up with the subscription. Thanks!
