My Little (Summer Vibes) box

It’s that time of the month again!

When I wait for all my boxes and am overly critical towards them! Honestly, I am very happy and usually really excited when I get them, but one must be cruel to be just!

If you are new to my reviews – Welcome! None of this is sponsored. I also rate things with my kittens. I hope you enjoy it!

Momo momo.png for negative score

&

Zeus Untitled for positive

None if this is reflective of their personalities! I love both of my shittens. If you want to see more of them you can find it on my Instagram @SaturdayonWednesday

I’ve tried my best not to spoil to to myself before it arrives, but I have to admit I have seen the cover on other posts before opening my own box. Shame. But I did control myself and did not click on those post so I still didn’t know what inside. And this is what I found:

                                                        My Little Box costs £14.95 including P&P      

I am not including a total price for this box as there are a lot of My Little Box own products and they always just put something ridiculous  like £15 for a see-through vest, because you know…they can.                                          


EXTRAS

As per usual, you get a little extra card in the box that you can either frame or just, like I, secretly collect in a drawer whilst not sure what to do with it. One day i will figure it out.

_DSC0199.jpgWe got another tiny extra this month, Kusmi iced tea! A lot of people love this, and if you live where it’s actually hot then good for you! I will wait until we have that rare day when there’s not need for heating and will definitely try this out.

Yay for extras!


Vest top

My Little Box

I give this 4  Curiously Supportive Zeuses

 £15 (suuuuure)

What?

A vest top with a really cute words on it: Girls just wanna have Sun. Very true.

How? 

I am probably going to wear this mostly to bed, or on cozy stay at home mornings! Perfect for that.

Pro’s

  •  It’s very cute!
  • I like the font too
  • And the colour (you could have also gotten it in dark blue, I, for once, prefer what I got)
  • Very light
  • Would suit mostly every size

Con’s

  • I wish it was made of a bit better material
  • It’s not very flattering on me

Could alternatively be used as: a dust cloth, if you’re just bitter and hate everything in life.

Would I buy it & should you?

Would buy it from Primark for £2, which is what it would cost. What I wouldn’t do is buy this for £15 unless it was made of unicorn hair. Or at least some nice material. But I appreciate they can send you a nice close fit as everyone is a different size. And c’mon, it really didn’t cost them £15. Despite the deceiving price, I do still like it very much, it’s nice to get something like this in a beauty box.


Sea salt spray

My Little Box

I give this 3..? Curiously Supportive Zeuses

How?

I am no expert in this, but as far as I know, this is to aid the messy hair looks..? Yes? No? Please enlighten me.

Pro’s

  • I always avoid any liquid products, since I spend hours straightening my naturally afro hair, so it sort of beats the point to wet them again – but maybe this will be different? So since I have never tried this, I am excited to.
  • It’s simple and cute
  • The sample size is great

Con’s

  • It might just end up giving me my afro back. It certainly is a ‘messy’ look. But not in the cute instagram way, at all. More of the ‘do you even own a brush’ sort of way.

Could alternatively be used as: maybe if you dry it out, you’ll be left with sea salt and then you can just use that for food. Probably not advisable.

Would I buy it & should you?

I don’t know how much these usually cost, so not sure how £7 compare to that. But if this works, then why not?


Glitter glue

Too Faced

_DSC0212.jpg

What? 

A glue to keep your glitter intact. It reminded me of these: 4460893

2 in 1?

How?

Apply as your normal primer and then replace eye shadows with glitter. The only problem here is not actually having any glitter. Whoops.

Pro’s

  • Sounds like fun
  • Love anything Too Faced, really nice to get that in a box

Con’s

  • They really missed an opportunity here to throw in some glitter, I mean that would make so much more sense!
  • I can’t really comment much more since I haven’t tried it. BECAUSE I DON’T HAVE GLITTER *face palm*

Alternatively could be used as: glue for non-make up glitter? Or maybe non-make up glitter can be used as make-up glitter? Whoa.

Would I buy it and should you?

Not really my thing, but I am open to new experiences! So whilst I wouldn’t buy this, since I got it now I might try it! I tried self tanning yesterday. Almost cried. Say yes to new experiences, they said..it will be fun, they said. Well they were right, do say yes 🙂 Not sure if you can count that self tanning, I just sprayed a tiny teeny bit of it and said ‘eeeeeek, that’s enough’ and went to bed.


Nail Polish

Ciate

I give this 3 Curiously Supportive Zeuses

Untitled Untitled Untitled

 

What?

It’s a cute and tiny bottle of nice cement-blue/grey nail varnish

 

Pro’s

  • I actually really do like the colour, I think it’s summery enough for Scotland. Which is the same as autumn, so yay!

Con’s

  • It’s nice and small (said no girl ever)
  • I’m still not sure how much i like Ciate. Will see, maybe this will help me to make up my mind.

Would I buy it & should you?

I would buy it. Because I like the colour. It’s quite unique, don’t you think? Would go really nice with virtually every classic look, really office friendly and would also go well with most colours of jewellery, yet it’s not as boring as your usual naturals. What else do you need?


Swimsuit Pouch

My Little Box

This deserves 3 Curiously Supportive Zeuses

Untitled Untitled Untitled

 

 

What?

A transparent swimsuit pouch.

How?

I assume this is for something that is not padded, as girls with bigger boozums have no hope to fit their swimsuit there.

Pro’s

  • It’s nice and waterproof (though not the bit next to the zipper)

Con’s

  • Again, not for big boozums.
  • Some people said it’s good for travelling, but all the airports require you to put your liquids in their regulated sealed baggies either way, so meh
  • I am not sure what to use this for

Could alternatively be used as: I don’t know, smuggling drugs? What would you suggest?

Would I buy it and should you?

Nope. But it’s nice, so I’ll keep it. Maybe.


VERDICT

Definitely not as good as the previous box, but not bad either. I enjoyed it more as a sum than as parts, but it still made me smile and feel all warm inside. It’s just something about My Little Box and the all the little details they make sure to pay attention to. I like it.

I believe the box was:

WHY, NO, STAPH!

REALLY POOR

MEH

SETTLING ON PASSABLE

ABOVE AVERAGE

REALLY ENJOYABLE

AWESOME

PERFECTION IN A BOX

Hey there! Welcome to my Everything Blog. You know those lovely organised people who have a niche? Well that's not me, my blog is just like my mind, jumping from one thought to another. Sorry (but not too sorry). I have a degree in Psychology and am a proud owner of two amazing kittens Zeus and Momo, although thoroughly a dog person! I love cooking, I surely love eating, reading and exploring. I have created this blog with hope that I can lighten up the mid-week Wednesday with some Saturday chill vibes. Hopefully you enjoy your Saturdays On Wednesdays as much as I enjoy mine. With Love, G xoxo

  1. If you’re someone like me, who has a pathetic excuse for a makeup bag (it’s literally like the size of an iPhone), then the swimsuit pouch could alternatively be used as an upgrade to that? Or you know, as you said, smuggling drugs.
    Otherwise, this box does look really good, and I’m still seriously considering subscribing! xxxx
