First impressions were really good; when Birchbox get it right they get it very right! There are a couple of things I'll pass on to a friend (the tanning oil and the book chapter sample) but I really like the variety this month. I was pretty happy to see a mini Benefit Roller Lash in there because after reading so many reviews, it became one of those things I really wanted to try but would never buy. I still wouldn't buy a full size but I do think that it's a really nice mascara & it doesn't make my eyes sting like They're Real does.

The little red notebook is possibly my favourite thing because I have a real thing for stationery and I don't think there's such a thing as too many notebooks!

My Little Superbox Box.

March 2015 My Little Box* | £11 + p&p

Garnier Miracle Sleeping Cream | £12.99
Kerastase Luminous Perfecting Conditioner | £15.75 for 200ml
My Little Beauty Lip Balm | €7
Sticker sheet
'I Believe I Can Fly' Tee | £29

My Little Box always make the best first impressions, and this month my favourite item is the 'I Believe I Can Fly' tee. Yes the song whirls around my head every time I look at it, but I've adopted it as my new 'I'm lazing around the house & want to be comfortable but don't want to wear pyjamas' tee. It's a one size only piece I believe (for size reference I'm about a UK 14 and it fits me pretty well, a little loose but not oversized) and one I imagine won't be totally suitable for everyone, which is the only downside.

For me the beauty items are just okay, but I think that's just because I've had the lip balm in a previous box and I would have preferred to try something new. It is a nice balm though, so I'm sort of pleased to have a new one. It smells like milky bar chocolate to me and that can only be a good thing. Like Birchbox I think the variety is really good & my Mum is looking forward to trying the sleeping cream out!

  1. well done to both boxes - you're right the mix is juuust spot on! love that tee and notebook too, they're my favorites too among the bunch :) i'm glad to hear you like the rollerlash, i've been seeing so much PR on it everywhere (typical benefit!), that day i saw a bunch of girls with rollers in their hair causing much commotion. they turned out to be marketing to the roller lash which i thought was pretty funny haha :)
    life has been pretty hectic with ups and downs lately but reading your blog is always the perfect little break away from everything xx

  3. The little red notebook is so cute and that's definitely a good variety of products in the box. I got a sample of Roller Lash a few weeks ago and was happy to try it out, though I won't buy the full-size either.

    1. It's nice to try new things, even if only to confirm that you preferred the product you were using before! xo

  6. Ooh, new and gorgeous header! I think the t-shirt is a really nice and different sort of inclusion. A lip balm that smells like Milky Bar sounds awesome too! xx

  7. I believe I can fly... I believe I can touch the sky, haha! I love My Little Beauty Box, I cannot wait for mine to arrive. Although a size 14 tshirt will be much too small for me!

  9. Both these boxes look awesome! I've not subbed to a beauty box since Glossybox ages ago, but I really need to get onto Birchbox as they seem to be going from strength to strength!

  10. The My Little Boxes are always awesome. I so wish they would make them available in the United States.

    I would love to hear how the sleeping cream works.
