Why I haven't tried a subscription box before I don't really know. I love the idea of having new beauty items delivered straight to my door each month, who wouldn't?
When the "Little Known Box"* arrived I was firstly so pleased by the gorgeous box everything is housed in (I'm keeping mine to store nail polish). This is the latest beauty box on the market offering beauty related products from more well known brands and those that are niche and unique, giving you the chance to try from brands you may never had heard of.
The first thing I noticed was the gorgeous gold eyelash curlers from The Vintage Cosmetics Company. Not only do these look amazing on my dressing table (and in the odd Instagram flatlay off course) but more importantly they work really well, giving my lashes a curl that lasts throughout the day. The nail wraps also caught my eye, the design is really bold and unique, which for everyday isn't really for me, but I do have a festival coming up where I think these will come in handy to add some colour to my outfit. Lastly on the makeup front is a lipgloss from a brand called Medusas Makeup, which is a natural, cruelty and paraben free makeup brand. The lip gloss is a cherry red shade which will work really well over the top of some of my matte reds, or on its own for a less intense look.
There are two skincare items in the box, which I'm so pleased about as it gives a really good mix of things to try. The Flint+Flint moisturiser is the real gem of the box, it is made in England and the brand set out to provide skincare that contains quality ingredients, is simple and actually works. It is in a tube which in my opinion is the best for moisturiser as it keeps everything more hygienic and travel friendly, this leaves my skin feeling soft and hydrated, and doesn't interfere with any makeup I apply on top. Overall I'm so impressed, and this retails at £32 making it a bargain! Lastly is the Dirtea exfoliating charcoal scrub, I'm actually going to take this away on holiday with me as its the perfect travel size. After having a browse online this brand again uses natural and cruelty free ingredients and is suitable for sensitive skin aswel, I'm excited to give this one a try!
After experiencing this I now truely understand the hype around a good subscription beauty box. This is fab as a monthly treat to yourself or as a one off gift to others. It has opened my eyes to the world of natural beauty, and knowing that there is much more out there than the more well known brands.
Have you tried any subscription boxes?
