My Little Energy Box (Jan 2015)

Saturday, January 17, 2015
My Little Box is the one beauty/lifestyle subscription box that I am subscribed too and the previous box I received was fantastic so I couldn't wait to see what this new years box had instore! The theme is new year, new you and energy. Here are the items in the box and my thoughts:

Firstly, the magazine and little print that come in the box every time are quite cute and useful - I will definitely be reading the magazine later today. There is also a 2015 calendar which is also cute but I don't really have anywhere to hang it. The final lifestyle item is a sports bag which says 'good energy is contagious' on it. It is a good sized bag, it has a inner pocket and it would be good for taking to the gym however I don't really know what I would use it for; I might use it for empties. I am a bit disappointed with the lifestyle items in this box, they are personally not very useful or exciting to me.

Now to the beauty, the first item is a gorgeous Nails Inc polish in the shade 'Tate' (10ml) which I don't have and I will be painting my nails with this shade very soon! Next up is an item from the My Little Box's own beauty range - the Energising Face & Body Mist which has a slight floral/chamomile scent, in my opinion and the spray is very fine so it will be fantastic as a facial spray. I will be re-using this bottle. Lastly, the Talika Paris Photo-Hydra Day (30ml) from a brand that I haven't heard of but it claims to be a deep facial moisturising cream so I can't wait to give it a go, hopefully it won't irritate my skin. 

Overall, I love the presentation and design of this box, as the previous one it is very pinterest worthy and I am very happy with the magazine and all three beauty products; I'm excited to try them out. However, I am quite disappointed with the lifestyle items as I won't really use them and in my opinion they are boring additions to the box - I definitely would have preferred other items! I am going to stay subscribed because I think the valentines box next month will be great. Overall rating:  ★★★☆☆, 3/5.

Are you subscribed to My Little Box? What do you think of the items in this months box?

  1. This is my first time hearing of this box, so I'm guessing it's not available in the US. It does sound a lot nicer than the Ipsy bag!

  3. I'd like to try it out based on other issues from past months, because I agree the lifestyle ones in this particular one are quite disappointing. Just wish you could try it out as a one off rather then a subscription system x

  7. I quite liked the contents this month, but I can see how they differ to previous months as I also have Novembers box. I'm trying to think of a use for my calendar, I may try & use it alongside my workouts! Great post Heather, am looking forward to next months box too! :) xxx

  8. I always think these subscription boxes look so lovely but then I worry that my house will just end up full of little bits that I don't want/need, even though I wouldn't be able to part with them because I'd paid for them, does that make sense? xx

  9. This box sounds really intriguing, I did stop using beauty boxes as I found I was getting more items I disliked then liked. However I like the beauty bits you received in this box including the Nails Inc polish and I like the addition of the magazine :)

  10. This would sell me purely on the Nails Inc. I love full size gifts in these boxes.
