Last month I reviewed my first My Little Box. I was a little disappointed as the contents were mainly L’Occitane samples, which I love but are already very familiar. For me, the real selling point of these subscription boxes is the element of surprise. Life can be a bit dull in the Fens and a little dose of unexpected French chic is just what I need each month.
I’m delighted to report that my second box, the French Riviera Box, is so much better than last month’s! Yet again, the box is beautiful and substantial in itself. I need to think of a good use for all the empty boxes – craft supplies, perhaps?
Here’s what greeted me when I opened the lid…
Next out was a little box containing these adorable sunglasses designed by Sarah Lavoine. I must admit, I’ve never heard of Sarah Lavoine, but she is the featured designer for this box and there is an interview with her in the little magazine.
And here’s this month’s little calico bag full of goodies…
Nail varnish by Sarah Lavoine, Kerastase blow-drying milk and a body scrub. I am thrilled with all these products and the varnish is already on my toes! They are decent sizes too.
The last thing out of the box are these little pots, which are designed for the bathroom. They’re quite sweet and I’m sure I’ll find a use for them – although they’re probably the weakest element of an otherwise excellent box.
So, all in all, I’m delighted with this month’s box and can’t wait to receive the next one! If you’re interested in signing up, it’s £11 a month, plus £3.95 postage – not cheap, but it felt worth it this time.
