I realised that although I do monthly unboxings of the beauty subscriptions I have I very rarely share them on my blog and this particular service is very budget friendly. It’s the cheapest that I’m aware of and it has the perfect balance of products you know you want vs surprises too! Each month (on the 1st) the new menu goes up and you choose 2 things you want and are sent a minimum of 2 others from that list at random. If you’re in to getting your moneys worth and never coveting someone elses selection THIS is the box for you! Some months menus are better than others.. this is definitely one of the not so great months but previously I’ve had 2 full sized lip products in a box which more than paid for the £6.95 subscription fee. This month I chose the Tresemme shot (which I’ve already tried and isn’t ‘all that’ but I thought would be useful to have for our next holiday) and the DHC Cleansing Oil which I’ve heard A LOT about and am very excited to try.. but again am wondering whether I should keep it for our trip.
Not really interested in the sachet of Dove Hair BB Cream but I guess it’s nice to have and almost certainly wont drink the herbal teas (not a fan) BUT from what I can gauge online the two items I chose would have totaled near the cost of the box so.. no biggie! If you’re super bothered about wasting your money then ultimately beauty box subscriptions aren’t for you, unless you can choose from a huge selection and know for a fact you’re getting things you really want to try then it’s all a bit of a gamble. I always preferred the surprise of say Glossybox/Birchbox over the services like LoveMeBeauty which gives you options so you knew up front what you’d receive but this is a great balance for me at a good price and since I recently cancelled all other subscriptions that’s what’s keeping me interested in this. I’m a big fan of My Little Box (although this month was also pants) however you can’t really beat £6.95 – INCLUDING P&P by the way – so for everyone who’s asked recently, I think this is the one I’d recommend, gun to my head. That being said I could change my mind completely in February.. but isn’t that the fun of it all?
PS. If you’re interested I have a whole playlist of unboxings on my second channel you can see below or by clicking this link (if you’re reading on a device that wont show the embedded video below..)
