However over the summer all my french friends told me about My Little Box which has 80,000 subscribers in France and which they are in love with so I was naturally intrigued by their move over to the UK.
The packaging on every box is stunning and similar to what I’ve seen other beauty boxes do in the past as a one off box. They have an illustrator that clearly spends time on all the goodies meaning that there is a nice flow throughout everything the company does. Inside the box you can expect to find a range of beauty items including some from the My Little Box in-house beauty range which means you won’t find it in any other beauty box. For me the nice thing is the lifestyle items which they include that aren’t tea bags and breakfast bars like other lifestyle boxes. In the past they’ve included bracelets, candles, phone cases, necklaces and my personal favourite was a pack of beautifully illustrated girly playing cards. Everything is very wearable, fun and just really well chosen. Each box has a theme making it a little different from the month before and includes a beautiful magazine (which is currently in French but I am hoping they will include and English version now they are coming over to the UK)
I think this beauty box has a little edge over the current ones on the market and for now I am really impressed although I look forward to finding out how it goes over the year and if it will become a little repetitive. Although a little more expensive than the most popular ones on the market it’s one I would actually subscribe to.
What do you think? Would you be tempted to subscribe or do you think beauty boxes have had their time? Would love to hear what you think in the comments.
