Happy Tuesday! Here we are with my last piece of monthly mail for the month. This month has seen the My Little Box had a one of packaging face lift in a suitably spring theme ‘My Little flower Book‘, yes book!
The packaging this month has had a little refresh into a format that opens as a book, personally I love this and wish every box was like this design wise, but that being said the lid on my box is so flimsy and the ribbon is almost ripping off on the inside already. There was no print this month – the second in a row, but as usual it came with the My Little World magazine.
First up of the additional items was a lingerie holder for travel if you go away. A nice idea and it does seem really nicely made, but if you have anything over a C cup it doesn’t look like your bra will fit in here… mine certainly don’t so an item I’ll see if a friend wants to take off my hands.
Next was a little cardboard box, it took me a little minute to realise what this is, it’s a city skyline with rows filled for you to grow seeds, now given this was my little flower box I was expecting this to be flowers, but infact it’s cress. This is the only item in the box which really has ties to being in the flower theme and it’s not even flowers.
The first beauty item that I pulled out this month was a Nails inc polish in the shade Tate, now this was disappointing as I’d already previously received this in the My Little Energy box last January. Speaking to customer service on their Facebook I shouldn’t have received this and they’ve popped a different item in the post for me. I was in two mind whether to wait for that item to come or post it, but I believe they won’t be sending me a Nails Inc item in return as they saw me say that I actually really didn’t like Nails Inc, so they hinted that it might not be a polish which is really nice I think. Given this is what I should have got rather than whatever they’re going to send I thought I’d show it as it should have been.
Next up was a L’Occitane Shower Gel, this again was a little disappointing for me, as we’ve had a L’Occitaine Shower Oil in a previous box. The scent mine came in was Pivoine Flora which I’ve had in a had cream previously. It’s a nice floral scent, but it’s hard to get me excited about a shower gel.
Last was the item from My Little Beauty which this month was a Face Mask, an item which again we only saw a few months ago with the noxi doxi peel and mask and it’s the one that has me most excited from the whole box. Rosee du Matin is a detoxifying mask designed for use in mornings to leave you fresh faced and ready to start the day. I’ve already tried this a few times over the weekend so I’ll hopefully get chance to get a face mask post up this week for it!
I’m still not sure if I’m going to continue with My Little Box, and I’ve decided to give it one more month before deciding. If I’m still undecided I think I will cancel. I think the best way to describe it is that it’s lost it’s sparkle for me. 2 of my old work friends also subbed to my little box and we had a discussion this week about what they felt about it and they all agreed they’re starting to feel like it’s lost it’s appeal for them too – and they’ve both been subbed a lot shorter time than I have.
One of my friends hit the nail on the head saying she feels like all the non beauty items which have arrived for the past few months have been cute, but things she’s put immediately in the bin. For the past few months there has been at most one product that I’ve been excited to try from the box and everything else has left me bored. It’s a shame as I don’t want to unsubscribe having been on the journey from the start and their customer service has always been friendly and brilliant on the rare occasion there has been a problem.
Are you subbed to My Little Box, how are you feeling about the subscription service?
