My Little Superbox review

Yes, it's late. Sorry about that. But this month (or, in fact last month - but let's not get bogged down in detail), My LittleBox has 'knocked it out of the park' (one for our American friends). This box contains fewer products, but much better ones in my opinion.

Even the kids got a treat this month; those wonder woman stickers lasted about five seconds with the two girls, but they got way more pleasure from them that I would. I'm not sure what you'd do with them if you don't have kids - but maybe I'm just not cool enough? Stick them on your school books maybe? Who knows. I'd recommend giving them to someone with kids. It might look odd if you just randomly give them to a child you don't even loosely know.

In the last couple of boxes, we've had a pretty cheap looking sports bag (not yet been used) and a smart phone case that didn't fit my smart phone (so went in the bin). This month though - drum roll, please - a winner has been found. Hurrah. A Gat Rimon t-shirt - 100% cotton - that says 'I believe I can fly' (thank you R Kelly - ahh, the memories of the 90s). I think it only comes in one size though, so it's not going to be for everyone. I haven't photographed the t-shirt yet (apols) but it's rolled up in that brown roll in the photo above. Picture a grey crew neck t-shirt and you're pretty much there. I'll instagram a photo when I wear it.

Three products this month: Caudalie's Hand and Nail cream (a favourite already), Lait Cristal by Kerastase and Pencil Bluff by My Little Beauty.

I don't need to say much about the hand cream; I love it, I already use it, it's brilliant. It's not full size is about the only complaint I have (which, admittedly, is a bit unfair) - but it's still 30ml, so a good handbag size. Winner.

I'm still in two minds about the My Little Beauty products - they are good quality, but the colours aren't great for me. This little number, though, should be okay in the summer. For me, it will definitely be more of a cheek thing and less of a lip thing - but you can't complain at multi purpose products. I wouldn't buy it, but it's nice enough.

Without doubt, you cannot go wrong with any Kerastase product and I'm looking forward to trying this one. This is a lightweight conditioner that claims to leave hair looking luminous, soft and supple. I'll be the judge of that, but I'll let you know. But I have high hopes.

Also, I'd recommend checking out the postcard that accompanies the products; this month you also get 20% off Caudalie's products on their website and 20% off Kerastase one's on theirs. Definitely worth making the most of. Overall, this is the best box I've had yet - so I'm looking forward to the next one. And I promise the review won't be late next time.
