What is Christmas without a Christmas themed beauty box? One that’s really hit the spot for me is the December My Little Box. Themed this month after the festive season itself, it’s certain not to disappoint. You all know by now that I am a huge fan of the subscription service for the lifestyle box by My Little Box. I don’t think any other box nails it month in month out like MLB… so here’s the low down on the goodies in this month’s box.
Firstly the packaging sums Christmas up in a box, with a lovely candy cane attached to the luxurious emerald green bow keeping the goodies inside securely contained. Inside is a typical going home for Christmas print designed by Kanako, the MLB team’s artist.
First up is a metal pot of Kusmi Tsarevna Tea, a black tea with a hint of orange, liquorice and spice it gives a heady scent of Christmas in a mug. The little tin it comes in is great to reuse once you’ve drunk all your tea.
One of my favourite items next and it’s the MLB Feu De Bois candle. I love the Muji Feu De Bois candle so I knew I would equally love this one. It’s packaged in a beautiful glass jar with a wooden lid. Pop of the lid and you unlock the scent of a fresh winter morning, waking up in a log cabin to the lingering smell of the warmth and hygge of a log fire the night before. Yes, it’s really that good!
Also included in the box is a collaboration jewellery item between MLB and Lou.Yetu, a gold cuff with a red striped running through the centre of the band. It’s a chic and wearable item perfect to add a bit of glam to your party outfit this festive season.
Finally for the lifestyle items, which is my favourite item and that I had to refrain from devouring as soon as it landed on the doorstep. To be honest you’re lucky there was any left in the pot to photograph it’s that good. I’m talking about the Tiptree Salted Caramel Spread. If you have a sweet tooth this will hit the spot. Generally the idea is to spread it on toast or something but if you’re a tad more heathen like me devouring it from the pot is tots acceptable as well. I love this creamy, sweet, heaven in a mouthful so much I’m going online to buy the full sized pot!
Now onto the beauty items:
- L’Occitane Amanade Huile De Douche (or shower oil to you and me): I have yet to try this but it smells scrummy. My only worry with a shower oil is how quickly it absorbs into the skin because I hate being left with that greasy feeling after applying oil.
- Hyperbole Courreges fragrance – a beautiful feminine fragrance with hints of musk, an underlying floral scent and an explosion of spice. Altogether it makes this fragrance super long lasting so you’ll be smelling fresh throughout the office party.
- MLB Christmas Melody Duo Smoky Eyes – in some lights they appear slightly purple toned but upon application they do come out more neutral in tone with one being a dark brown. Both are very buttery formulas and are quite pigmented the lighter of the shades gives an iridescent shimmer whilst the darker brown blends beautifully for that perfect lived in smoky eye look.
Overall another amazing box with the perfect balance of beauty and lifestyle items that are targeted towards their audience. I honestly can’t fault this box and it’s the ideal gift for a friend or relative. If you haven’t subbed already to MLB you are seriously missing out a fab little monthly delivery.
