Today I’ve got a super-special review to share with you from an amazing guest blogger! My bestie Zara has subscribed to My Little Box, gorgeous subscription box with a different theme every month, and she kindly agreed to write a review to share with you guys. She’s done a great job so be sure to show her some love in the comments.
My Little Box review – July 2015
I’ve always looked at subscription boxes and thought “that looks nice” and just left it at that, but after a sponsored ad on Facebook with cute illustrations caught my attention I was intrigued. The previous boxes shown on their site. My Little French Riviera Box, My Little Dream Box and My Super Box encouraged me to try them out. So far I’m glad I did.
I signed up to My Little Box about 2 weeks ago and was super excited for my first box to arrive.
My box is the My Little Road Trip Box, filled with goodies to do with travel.
Firstly I must say that the packaging is beautiful! The actual box is themed with maps and an adorable car illustration. Lifting the lid I found a little pile of bits tied up with a lovely bow.
The first item in my box was a travel organiser (RRP 15 Euros from mylittlecorner.com, which is roughly £11). The organiser is split into sections for your passport, cards and your ticket. The whole organiser is also a large zip pocket so you have somewhere safe to store your travel money.
The second thing is My Little World magazine. The magazine comes with each box and is themed to the current box, so mine is about travel. It contains a few beauty tips, an interview, a wordsearch 🙂 and some stunning photography.
The next item is different. It’s a note book that doubles as a postcard so you write a nice long note about your trip the old fashioned way without being limited to the tiny space on a standard post card (£3.50 from mylittlecorner.com). The back of the envelope is also covered in another adorable illustration. The notebook also came with a BIC pen (BIC Cristal Stylus £2.99 from Ryman) which is really clever because it actually has a stylus on the end of it, so you can easily go from scribbling in your diary to using your tablet.
The most exciting part of the box though is the little pouch of beauty goodies. My contained Garnier Micellar Cleansing Water 125ml (RRP £1.99 you can also get a bigger bottle 400ml £4.99, on sale at Amazon for £2.66), essie nail polish in hide & go chic (Debenhams sell essie polish for £8 a bottle), and Summer Sorbet (£9 from mylittlecorner.com).
The cleansing water removes all types of make up whilst cleansing and soothing your skin. It’s also hypoallergenic, so those of you with sensitive skin may want to try it out. The essie nail polish is a gorgeous blue which currently can’t be purchased in store. The final beauty product is the Summer Sorbet which smells gorgeous. The sorbet is actually an after sun product made by My Little Box’s own beauty company My Little Beauty.
So adding up all those goodies comes to a grand total of £36.47 at retail price. What did I pay? £11! Ok so that was without delivery as I had a code, but even with delivery it would have only cost £13.95, a BIG difference if you ask me.
One final thing I want to add about My Little Box is that each of the products comes with a little card explaining exactly what it is and what the RRP of the item is. Which is brilliant because you know straight away whether it’s something you would be able to buy as an everyday product or just as a special treat.
How awesome is that? And how great was Zara’s first ever blog post? She’s fab. Have you subscribed to My Little Box or another subscription box? Let me know in the comments below and leave a link to any reviews you’ve written, too. I’d love to read them. Until next time!

My Little Box looks like a great idea! I might look into it. The travel theme would have been great for me.
It’s one of the best subscription boxes I’ve seen in terms of variety! I think that Birchbox looks good too as an alternative to Glossybox xx
