SPOILERS ALERT - What's in My Little Box's first UK box?

The beauty box crowd has just got better, with the new contestant to join the UK - My Little Box from Paris!

My Little Box is hugely popular in France. When I first saw their website, I instantly felt in the love with the oh-so-romantic very cute French illustration. Each month has a different theme – My Little Weekend Box, My Little Sunset Box, My Little Party Box… They have some of the top beauty brands as their partners, By Terry, Essie, Diptyque, Marc Jacobs, Sephora, just to name a few. With their success in Paris, they decided to launch it in the UK at the beginning of this month. And I have just received my first box in the post!

(*SPOILERS ALERT* – Stop right here if you are waiting for your box) However, if you want to compare notes, then please read on…

The first box is named “My Little Parisienne Box”. How appropriate it is to establish their French identity, and how cute is the illustration on the box!

Untied the beautiful ribbon we have a cover card (could save them up for wall display or postcard), cute stickers and a hardcover notebook. 

The first 10 pages of the notebook is an introduction to the concept and history of My Little Box, the rest of the notebook has blank pages.

Underneath we have a little fabric pouch and a folded “sponge” – it is a laptop protective pouch!
Inside the super cute fabric pouch are 3 beauty items :

Laura Mercier Foundation Primer - 30ml - (normally £29 for a 50ml tube)
This is not those teeny tiny sample size that only lasts for 2 uses. It’s a very decent small size tube (30ml). Half of a normal size product! Not expected such a large size in a beauty box. Like!

Nuxe Huile Prodigieuse Multi-Purpose Dry Oil - 10ml
A cult product in a cute travel size glass bottle. It is said to be “the secret of Parisian Women” for their flawless skin. Like!

My Little Beauty Complexion Brightening Pen – Stylo Lumiere - £11
“My Little Beauty” is My Little Box’s own brand beauty range. I am so excited to try their own brand products! This is a twist-up pen like YSL Touche Eclat, for on-the-go touch ups. Not only can be used a foundation quick-fix, it can also be used on eyelids as a eyeshadow primer! And it’s waterproof!! At the moment, this in-house brand doesn't yet ship to the UK, so this box is the only way to try their products! (Of course unless you have friends in France)

To conclude, the five items in the box are:
 - laptop protective pouch,
 - hardcover notebook with stickers,
 - Laura Mercier Foundation Primer
 - Nuxe Multi-Purpose dry oil, and
 - My Little Beauty Complexion Pen.

I love the box already with the design, and I love it even more when I see the products! The beauty products are small but in generous size, to which I can actually get a proper try and use of the products. I also love the fact that the content of the box is not limited to beauty only, it contains lifestyle items too (notebook and the laptop pouch).

I am very impressed with my first box. If this is the standard, it will be THE BOX that is finally worth subscribing every month.

Now the price - The subscription is £11 + £3.95 (p&p) each month, continuous unless you notify them to cancel. If the delivery address is your work address, it is £1 cheaper! Not sure why but every little helps! You can also buy as a gift as a fix 3-, 6- or 12-month subscription. I think it is such a great Xmas present idea!

Estee Lauder Enlighten Dark Spot Correcting Night Serum

Lately I have been obsessed with the Estee Lauder Enlighten Dark Spot Correcting Night Serum . In the past I tried the Kiehl’s Clearly Corrective Dark Spot Solution, it was alright but I didn’t find the result that amazing. So when I got a sample of for this Estee Lauder Enlighten Serum, I didn’t have high hopes … But how wrong I was! The sample bottle lasted me for two generous weeks and after that I rushed out to get the full size. Although it is called a serum, it is a light milky lotion texture, it is easily absorbed into skin and it feels moisturising. With the sample bottle, I used it every night after my cleansing routine. I can see visible results to my face after two weeks. My blemish marks are significantly lighter (my main concern) and the skin tone for the rest of my face is visibly more even.  Now I have the full size bottle (30ml, also available in 50ml size), I am going to follow the instructions to use it both day and night. Use it at night to reduce

Makeup Lego : Jouer Little Black Dress Palette

I love Lego and I love Makeup - what if there is a Lego in the makeup world....?! Jouer Cosmetics has made this dream come true, especially with the two palettes that they have: Blushing Beauty Collection and the Little Black Dress palette. A few YouTubers like Essie Button , Fleur De Force , and Ameila have talked about the Blushing Beauty Collection on their videos, but I actually prefer the Little Black Dress palette instead.
