I have been searching for a beauty box with a difference, one with variety that doesn’t contain familiar products, one that will introduce me to something new and brands I am unaware of. I wanted a box that would excite me when I opened it! After doing quite a lot of searching I came across Little Known Box, a cruelty free subscription box and I am so glad I found them.
Little Known Box work with up and coming beauty brands. Every brand they partner with is cruelty free, they are passionate about ethical beauty and that is a huge plus in my book. Each box contains 5-6 full and travel sized products which have been carefully selected to compliment each other for the months theme. A bonus product is often popped in too which I think is a lovely touch.
I purchased the August box and the attention to detail is exquisite, beautifully packaged it felt indulgent to open. Information on all the brands and products is included which I found really useful, you can see how passionate they are and how much thought goes into every box. I felt there was a good balance of makeup and skincare included, I couldn’t wait to try it all!
Let’s discover together…….
Phase Zero Vegan Matte Liquid Lipstick (full size 30ml). I received the shade Blow, a beautiful deep pink. To be honest I am more of a lipstick girl than a liquid lip wearer, however I did find this a beautiful colour especially for going into the autumn months where a pop of colour always brightens up a dull day. The formula dries down quickly and is extremely long lasting, no marks on my coffee mug! I found this looked much better with a liner on my lips and have been getting compliments when I wear it.
Flawless Facial Cleanser (30ml Travel size). This cleanser comes in a powder form which turns into a paste when mixed with water, a cleanser with a difference I really enjoy mixing it into a paste! It has a lovely smell and felt gentle and soothing on my skin. It is 100% vegan and contains Kaolin Clay and oats which gently exfoliate and soothe the skin. It feels so lovely to use first thing in the morning, the perfect start to the day.
Living Pure Natural Face Oil (Full size) This beautiful green bottle caught my attention immediately, maybe it’s the Irish in me! I am a huge fan of face oils and have been using it every day since it arrived last week. It smells beautiful and fresh helping to wake me up in the morning. The oil absorbs easily into my skin, I have been using it both morning and evening and my face is feeling soft, supple and hydrated. I also use a little on my dry elbows and they too are feeling the benefit. This is my favourite product from the box!
Manna Kadar Sunkissed Clam Shell (full size) This beautiful compact contains a gorgeous highlighter and blush both of which are super pigmented. I love the Indian summer feeling I get from this duo, it leaves the perfect healthy glow on my cheeks and I am really enjoying using it as eyeshadow for some subtle glow, it blends beautifully and a little goes a long way!
Seacret Spa Body Lotion (travel size) Containing pomegranate this body lotion smells beautiful, I happily sat smelling it for ten minutes before using it (does anyone else ever do that?) It absorbs into the skin easily and quickly with no waiting around so your clothes don’t stick to you! I am not surprised this is a bestseller my skin feels soft and hydrated after application and I am sure it has a bit of glow to it!
Bonus item Seacret Spa Mineral Soap – I have popped this little gem in my suitcase for our holiday next week and look forward to using it. It has a gorgeous fresh smell which is perfect for when away relaxing!
I am so impressed with the quality of all the products I received many of which I am sure I would not have discovered had it not been for Little Known Box, I can’t wait to see what other products they will introduce us to in the future.
Little Known Box offer a variety of subscriptions and gift vouchers are available (a great Christmas gift with a difference- yes I am planning ahead!) Find out more at Little Known Box and let me know if you find any new gems you can’t live without!
