Little Known Box – Spring Edit

A few weeks ago I was lucky enough to win a giveaway hosted by the lovely Nikki at LoveLaughLipstick. She runs a beauty blog with the most amazing photography which you should definitely check out! The giveaway prize was a Little Known Box of my choice.

Little Know Box is a beauty subscription box but unlike other subscription services you can also buy one off boxes from previous months! I absolutely love this idea as I’m always nervous I won’t like everything in a subscription box so this is the perfect solution! I picked the March box, their Spring edit. I will admit I picked this box purely for the fact a Bloomtown Scrub was included.

Before even opening my box I was blown away by the classy, beautiful packaging! You can tell so much love and care has gone into packing this box.

Bloomtown Scrub – The Wood

IMG_1437

I have a whole post on Bloomtown products, I’m absolutely obsessed with them! They’re natural, vegan, cruelty free and all smell incredible! So ofcourse I was delighted when I saw one of their scrubs was in this box. Their scrubs are my favourite products, I’ve previously used up a scrub in the scent ‘The Meadow’ which is Lavendar, Rose Geranium and Camomile scented so was very excited to try this one in ‘The Woods’. I have a candle in this scent so I know I really like it already. ‘The Woods’ products are scented with Cedar, Vetiver and Bergamot. The scrub has a gorgeous musky smell and makes skin incredibly soft.

The Vintage Cosmetics Company Blending Sponge

I will admit, I’m a Beauty Blender snob. No other blending sponge has lived up to the standards of the original beauty blender. I was still looking forward to trying this out though. £16 is so expensive to be replacing your sponge every 3 months so I’m always looking for cheaper alternatives! I also love that this sponge is purple! When dampened this sponge expands like the Beauty Blender. It is slightly more dense but I really enjoyed using it.

The Edge Top Coat

I was really happy to see a top coat in this box as I accidentally melted my OPI top coat and now it’s gone all gloopy (don’t leave nail polishes in sunlight!) I painted my nails using the gorgeous Maggie Anne polish in ‘Grace’ from my Skin Organics Beauty Box unfortunately though, when I applied the top coat, it took the gorgeous shine off the polish and made it slightly streaky which I was disappointed by. I wanted to give it another go so tried it with an OPI polish and on my bare nails, it looked okay with bare nails but honestly, I was disappointed with this polish.

HJ Nail Polish – Thunder Storm

You were able to pick a nail polish for this box in either pink, nude or lilac. I went for Thunder Storm a lovely cool toned grey/lilac as I don’t have a shade like this in my extremely large nail polish collection! This polish is pigmented, easy to apply and has a lovely shine when dry. I really like this nail polish, I definitely want to try some other colours from HJ. I love that Little Known Box let you choose your own shade.

Soap Smith Marble Arch soap

This is another amazing smelling product! Soap Smith are an artisan company who create a whole range of soaps in different colours and scents. I will admit I was slightly put off the first time I used this, when damp the dark dye comes out of this so it looks a wee bit icky when washing yourself with it. I adore the smell so much though that I’m willing to look past that.

Saturated Colour Lipstick – Breezy Coral

I already own a Saturated Colour lipstick in the shade Naked Pink so I was pleased to see another one in this box in a gorgeous coral colour perfect for the summer! Saturated Colour products are cruelty free and vegan. Breezy Coral is a sheer tinted balm, it contains jojoba oil and vitamin E to nourish lips as well as giving them a gorgeous subtle colour.

I really loved my Little Known Box, there’s a great selection of products and it costs only £12.95! I’ll definitely be keeping an eye on the boxes and get another one in the future. Have you had a Little Known Box before?

    I can’t keep up with all these boxes! 😱. It’s cool that you can pick a previous box, the price isn’t bad either 😊

    The Bloomtown sponge looks divine! I’ve seen this box on various blogs, etc and it never fails to amaze me-in terms of how much fits in..

    What a lovely box with incredible things inside! Lovely to read x

    Aah! These products are super cute and I love the packaging. Sometimes packaging can be overdone, but this subscription does enough to show that they care, which many don’t. I’m definitely going to have to look into this! Thanks for sharing!

    I’ve been loving Bloomtown Botanicals products lately, I have an amazing blackberry scented hand and body wash from them that smells lovely. Little Known Box really is great for discovering new niche brands.

    wow! That is such a good box. I love that you can order ones from previous months, such a good idea!

    Im always attracted to these subscriptions boxes but always unsure if ill like everything in the box so to finally see a company that lets you see before you buy and purchase previous months one its definitely something i’ll be looking into!

    • August 13, 2017 / 10:22 pm

      Yes that’s what I adore about this box! I’m always nervous about that too so this is the perfect solution!
