My Little Superbox

My Little Superbox
As always once my dispatch email was sent out I was impatiently waiting for my postman to deliver this month's My Little Box. Even though the postman kept me in suspense for a good 3 days after the dispatch email (damn him!) I was thrilled to see it arrive sharpish on Friday morning. Now I am not at all superstitious but this box arrived on Friday 13th so I was sceptical about what was inside. If I'm being honest this box didn't excite me as much as previous ones did - silly Friday 13th raining on my box.

Once I opened up my box I wasn't welcomed with one of My Little Box's greetings cards as I usually am which was disappointing as I love reading and putting to use my little inspiration cards. Instead of the lovely greetings cards I received some 'superstickers' which will be perfect to brighten up a notebook or even just a to do list. Not overly fond of those but stickers always come in handy!

Behind the stickers was another nifty, little magazine that is always filled with lots of inspiration, interviews, advice, photography, tips, tutorials and even some positive quotes to keep you happy and motivated. I always love receiving these magazines I am starting to gather quite a collection, they are so perfect for throwing in your handbag to read on the go. I tend to read these on the train and always look back on them every now and then because I always come across some helpful tips.

This month's box is a little different as I received a little bit of fashion a t-shirt to be precise. This t-shirt reads 'I believe I can fly' and from Instagram nebbiness I have discovered that some other subscribers have received ones that read 'we can be heroes' or 'somewhere over the rainbow'. These t-shirts are supposed to give you the 'feel good vibe' through the use in type. I do like the rolled up sleeves and the colour of this t-shirt it will be perfect for throwing on to laze around the house.

Once I finished unraveling everything in boxes, bows and whatnot I finally got to the bottom of my box and opened up my dainty drawstring bag that is filled with several beauty products. The first product I pulled out was from My Little Beauty which is basically My Little Box's own beauty range. The product I received this month was a Pencil Bluff that is a double lip & cheek pencil. This is the perfect peachy shade for heading into spring and summer! 

The second product I had come across was a Hand and Nail cream by Caudalie. Hand creams will always be of use to me regardless what time of the year it is so this cute, miniature size will certainly be joining My Little magazine in my handbag. 
The last product I received was Luminous Perfecting Conditioner By Kerastase which I think is the French term for Loreal. I was probably most happy to receive this because it is very rare that I receive a hair treatment. This product you apply to wet, washed hair and massage it through the ends, leave for 2 minutes, rinse then POW!This claims to leave your hair tangle free so I am excited to try it out.

Overall I have to say I wasn't as impressed as I normally am, I felt as though this month they have missed a couple of bits out compared to normal. I am not really understanding the whole theme 'superbox' to be honest. All of these things will be put to good use as always! But the Friday 13th rain on my box parade hasn't stopped me from looking forward to next month's box.

Have you subscribed to this box yet??

  2. I love the my little box's themes, they're always so well thought out but I know what you mean about this not quite being as good as some of the former ones. Still an ace box though!

  4. Even though you weren't as impressed with this box, I think it looks like a fun box! I don't think I could afford another subscription box though!

  7. I don't get this box but have seen various tweets & posts about this months box saying it wasn't their fave either! It's a cute idea though! I like the sound of the little magazine too.

  8. There are so many of these little boxes nowadays it's hard to keep track! This one seems quite cool though - definitely a good variety of things!

  9. Every time I read a blog post about 'My Little Box', I'm always completely overwhelmed by the beauty of it. You can tell that so much thought and consideration goes into making these each month and they look like they come with the most adorable and unique gifts. It's a shame you weren't overly pleased with this month's box. I think you received a lovely selection of products, though I don't really see how the concept of 'superhero' comes through.
    Fingers crossed next month is back on track to being lovely :)

  11. I love reading everyone who subscribes to this box's posts, but I can see why you were a little underwhelmed with it. It's still adorable, just not... quite what the others were. I guess the theme was harder to translate into the items? Still, the hair treatment sounds amazing!

    1. I know I think because it felt like things were missing which was a shame if they weren't I probably would of been fine, just felt like the cost went onto the t shirt.

  12. I haven't subscribed to this box. I've had a series of bad experiences with another company that has soured me on the whole "subscription box" trend. I'll be wiling to give it another go soon but not quite yet. This one looks fun though I like the tee.

  13. I haven't heard of Super Box but I think it's a cute idea. I'm sorry to hear that this box didn't live up to the standard of the one sent before it! What a let down. The T shirt look comfy to lounge in and the magazine looks fun to read. I like the illustrations on the box as well :) Hopefully the next one hits the mark! xo

  14. I have never signed up for a subscription box before. I am just worried I won't like any of the products inside but I love the idea of them! Pity you didn't like yours that much but maybe it was just like you said because of Friday the 13th :) x

    1. See I disagree I think you get good value for money as you always get 3 or 4 beauty bits and 2 or 3 miscellaneous bits as well as a magazine and a quote for your wall
