Little Known Box: October 2016
I love subscription boxes, I think it is mostly because of the mystery and not knowing what I'm getting - they are the adult version of the Claire's Accessories pink goody bags that were £5 back in the 90's! I have tried quite few and I have a lot of favourites but I'm always really happy to try others as since they came onto the market a few years ago, there have been an almost constant influx of subscription boxes and I'm all for that!

I was very kindly sent the *Little Known Box (£15.95 - October) which is a new subscription box to me and I was instantly impressed; it's the October 'autumn anniversary' box which is still available to purchase from their website. The box contains five items as well as two bonus items, all of which are beauty related.

The first item that caught my eye was the Dinki Belle Nail Wrap Gift Set (£7.99, full size) which are nail wraps in the perfect design/print for bloggers...marble. I've tried a few nail wraps/stickers and I like them but this design is my favourite. I love the packaging, the design and it comes with a nail file/accessories to help you apply the wraps. They are supposed to last for two weeks, they are an easy and quick alternative to nail polish and there are 20 nail wraps in the pack.

Next up, the Merumaya Melting Cleansing Balm (25ml) which I have already tried the full size of already and you can read my full review if you want more information but I did give it 5/5 stars. There are also a couple of Merumaya sample sachet serums as a bonus item.

The final skincare items from the box are the Samaya Aquveda Anti-Ageing Cream (three 5ml pots). The cream comes in three cute pots so it would be ideal for travelling and it is an all natural brand. It has a bit of an unusual scent but the texture is gorgeously silky and absorbs quickly.

Next up, the nicest smelling item in the box, The Herb Garden Massage Bar (15g travel size) which I presume is in the 'relaxing' scent. The packaging is cute and the massage bar is in the shape of a flower! The massage bar has a floral, clean and creamy scent to it and the bar itself is really smooth and creamy.

The makeup item in the box is the Lin & Lo Satin Lipstick (£19) in the shade Pearl Pink which is a pretty, natural tan rosy shade - it would be perfect for everyday. The price is a little high, in my opinion but the packaging feels so luxe! It's really heavy and the lid has a satisfying magnetic closure.

Last but not least, the second bonus item - Fab Little Bag (£1.99) which contains five biodegradable tampon disposal bags that are made from 35% organic material. I love receiving practical and eco friendly products in subscription boxes and this is a great bonus item.

Overall, I love the box and packaging design as it looks really luxe! The box contains a few full size items and smaller sizes as well as a range of brands/products that I'm very happy with overall. I love the lipstick, the nail wraps, massage bar and it's great to have a travel size of the lovely Merumaya Cleansing Balm. Overall rating: ★★★★★, 5/5.
