It Gets So Hot

song of the day - Horse Pills by Dandy Warhols
Another month, another MyLittleBox. MLB is a monthly subscription service that mixes beauty, fashion and lifestyle in one box. This months theme is Provence, which is an area of France known for lavender (at least according to google).
There were quite a few L'Occitane products in this months box. I've not used much from the brand before, but I've heard a lot of good things.
In my box I got a Mer & Minstrel shower gel, a Rose et Reines hand cream, the Verbena body lotion, and a cute little Verbena soap. I don't think any of the products are full sized, but I should be able to get a good few uses out of them. The only product I dislike out of the lot is the hand cream; I can't stand the overpowering rose smell.
I am surprised that none of the items smell like lavender, considering the theme of the box. I'm guessing verbena also grows there.
 My favourite item from the box had to be the MLB own brand eyeshadow crayon. It's such a pretty bronze colour, and is so easy to use. I'm pretty sure this is the first eyeshadow crayon I've ever tried, so I'll definitely be trying some out from other brands.
MLB always has the cutest fashion products in the boxes, and this months is no exception. In the box you get a cuff and some thread, which you weave through the holes in the cuff to make a design. I will admit this was a pain in the derriere to do, because the ends of the thread kept fraying. I don't really have the patience for this, so it'll take me a while to do the whole cuff. Also, the cuff is kinda big for me, so I'd have to wear is over a thick top to keep it in place.
And finally are some fridge magnets. When I first picked this up out of the box I thought it was one of those paper doll things, which was a sweet idea, but magnets are so much better.
What do you think of this months box? Are you subscribed to MyLittleBox?

  6. Pretty cool idea, it is odd they didn't include any lavender but L'Occitane is a french brand I believe so maybe they figured that was good enough.

  11. What a cute box! Yeah I think something lavender would have been a good idea in a Provence box. Strange that they didn't include a product like that.
