It's that time again when I review my monthly My Little Box and let you know my thoughts on what's inside.
If you have followed my blog for a while you will know that, for the best part, I've had a great relationship with this subscription box, but there have been a few up's and down's along the way. None more so than in 2017. I feel that they started off on such a good note with the January box (my review of this can be found here), but fell short of the mark in February and since then I've not really known what to expect from month to month.
Last month's Los Angeles box (review linked here) was ok but I felt the box was let down with the lack of thought put into the theme and therefore giving me the impression that, at some point, whoever creates these boxes had got a bit bored and started chucking anything in. I made no secret that I would wait for the July box to see whether I would keep my subscription running with them or give another company a go, so here goes... the review...(could it be my final one)?!!
The next (and last) lifestyle item threw me 100% right back to the beach theme though as it's an inflatable Travel Pouch/Pillow. I absolutely love this and think it's a great inclusion into a beach-themed box and by far one of my favourite lifestyle items I've received since I started my subscription. I hardly use a sunbed at the beach, preferring to just lay on a towel on the sand but I hate propping my head up on my beach bag so this is brilliant and I can't wait to use it.
With my hopes slightly dashed I delved in to find another hand cream!! As I'm writing this, the words are literally screaming in my head!!! Why, oh why do I have another hand cream and what on earth does a rose-scented (the scent is lovely I'll give it that) hand cream have to do with a Seashell/Beach/Summer Night themed box????I am so cross with the inclusion of this item - I'm fed up with seeing hand creams, face creams, perfume samples or duplicate items in my subscription. There must be 100's of products out there but I've lost count of the hand creams I've had. But not only that, if anyone could help me out and let me know what I've missed with the connection between Seashells and rose-scented hand cream I'd really love to know as I can't stop scratching my head.
here if you want to check out a happier review) My Little Box couldn't have put a foot wrong. It was fantastic and well thought out but now it all seems like too much trouble and just leaves me really confused.
I've decided to give another subscription box a go so hopefully soon I'll be able to share my thoughts on that with you all but for now, it's with sadness my once good relationship with My Little Box has come to an end. Who knows whether in the future I'll dip back in - I'd really like to think so and I'll continue keeping an eye on what the boxes are like each month, but until then, it's au revoir My Little Box.
I'd love to know your thoughts on this subscription box if you tried it.
