I thought I had tried every beauty box out there and after some initial enthusiasm I always find the quality tails off and cancel. When I heard about the best selling french box though which in November included a Diane Von Furstenberg scarf , I had to find out more.
80,000 French women subscribe to My Little Box which is a huge recommendation given how elegant and well groomed they are. What makes the box stand out is that it as well as beauty products, it also includes fashion and lifestyle accessories. The beauty products themselves are really special with at least one each month from their in house range. I also really loved that the boxes all contain illustrated goodies from Kanako – I love framing cute little postcards and propping them on my mantlepiece. When I read that My Little Box had launched in the UK in September, I poured over the reviews to see if it the UK box would be as fabulous as the French one was said to be. The reviews were even more positive than I had hoped and so I quickly ordered the next one for myself. Ordering was easy – you have the choice to subscribe or just to buy one box at a time. It took just a couple of minutes and then it was just a question of waiting for the postman.
When it arrived I was delighted to see that it was postbox sized so no more annoying We Missed You postcards behind the door when I get in from work. I actually gasped when I ripped open the packaging to see that Diane Von Fustenberg had designed the box. Just look at this…
Can you believe that? A gorgeous little postcard, a French Miscellar Water, Kerastase hairspray, L’Occitane handcream, pouch, magazine and a Diane Von Furstenberg brooch AND scarf for a ridiculously cheap £11 plus p&p.
I genuinely cannot wait to see what next month’s My Little Box contains.
