My Little Box November 2015 Review

The November box was definitely an improvement on October's box! Not one of my favourites, but I liked it, and it arrived early, which was a nice bonus. This month's box is called the "My Little Sweet Box" and while I'm a bit disappointed there was nothing sweet actually in it (e.g. chocolate), it was a good box overall. Here are my thoughts!

I love the design of this month's box! To start with, it's an actual tin instead of a cardboard box, which is amazing, and very useful. It's also just really cute! I love the illustrations - the wooden spoons and egg cups and scales! Definitely impressed. The only thing is that my box has a dent on one side, but it's not too bad, and I can live with it.

The card was a bit different this month, and featured a chef called Mimi (who was also interviewed in the magazine) which was quite interesting. I still prefer the illustrated cards but a change is nice once in a while.

My thoughts on each individual product:

My Little Beauty Sweet Hand Cream - well, it's another cream. But I have to admit, it is nice. It's not too greasy and has a light but sweet smell, and is pretty moisturising. I can't complain! And the packaging is very cute, once again.

Bliss Fabulous Foaming Face Wash - I haven't fully tested this one yet but I've done a patch test and so far it seems okay and my skin hasn't reacted badly to it. This foam face wash definitely smells a lot better than the last one I received (it has a very gentle floral fragrance) and it makes my skin feel really clean and soft. If it keeps working well for me, and doesn't affect my skin, I would probably consider using it regularly (which is saying something, because I really love the foam face wash I use right now).

Yves Rocher So Elixir Bois Sensual Fragrance - I actually really like this perfume. Originally I thought it would be too strong, but it was fine when I actually put it on my skin. The scent is difficult to describe, the card says it's a "feminine fragrance of aromatic substances including iris, vanilla and patchouli". So floral with some woody tones? I don't know, but I really like it. It's worth testing out if you ever come across it, anyway.

My Little Box Chef's Apron - this is a nice addition to the box, I think! Despite the fact that I actually really like baking, I don't own any aprons, so I'll be using this the next time I'm making something (and maybe it will encourage me to bake more, I've haven't made anything in a while).

My Little Box Jar Decals - well I don't know how useful stickers for jars are going to be for me. I don't put stuff in jars, I leave them in the packets, because I'm lazy, and it's more efficient. And even if I did put stuff in jars, I wouldn't then stick ugly white stickers on said jars. Not too impressed with these, but it was a nice thought, I guess.

That's my review of this month's box! What did you think? Did you prefer any other beauty boxes over this one for November?


  1. Ooh I like that the box is an actual tin, so you can use it for other things, like cookies! haha An apron is a nice touch. It would have been cool if they added a small sweet treat, but ah well. Glad you like the perfume too!


  2. Even though this is completely out of my reach lol, i absolutely love when you post about these sweet little boxes! This one is soooo cute! I love the baking theme (of course lol) and how cool that the box is tin this time!


Comments are better than frosted cupcakes :)
