Here at The Amazing Blog we can’t think anything that’s better than a beauty haul. So we were excited when we came across Little Known box offering a mini beauty haul delivered to you every month. Little Known Box is a subscription service based brand, offering less well-known beauty brands with the focus on vegan and eco-friendly products, once a month.
As well as receiving 5-6 full sized products a month, there is a card with a bio for each brand, explaining their products alongside makeup artist Aimee Adams’ review of each. We received the August box, the products included are Glittereyes pressed glitter, Amygdala beauty solid fragrance, Bardou dry shampoo, PHB eyeliner and Fairypants vegan lip balm. The variety of the products within the box makes it exciting, with it being August, the box is focused on Summer social events like BBQs, races and weddings. The collection of products are great for the theme, firstly the Glittereyes pressed glitter in Rosegold. The pigmentation of this glitter is perfect; we were also amazed that the glitter stayed put all evening with no need for any type of adhesive. The solid fragrance by Amygdala was a new idea for us, rather than a conventional spray, the scent is within wax so when applied to skin works the same as a scent, without the alcohol or irritants found within perfume sprays. Dry shampoo is a regular guest in the beauty routine for most busy women, the convenience and ease it’s too good to pass by. Bardou’s Keratin enriched spray gives you the London salon experience at home. Joining Augusts’ line up is also PHB’s natural and organic eye liner in black, this brand is a family run business with award winning ethical beauty products. The eyeliner leaves the perfect line, thin enough for precise application whilst having decent pigmentation. Lastly in the August box is a vegan lip balm by Fairypants, keeping in the evening theme as its' flavour is Peach Bellini, the wax easily glides over the lips hydrating them and leaving them super soft.
The idea of discovering new or boutique brands is great as you know your mainstream brand isn't going to pop up and every month there are new surprise treats. The August box is on sale until September 20th or until it sells out, but with this line up we’re sure the next months' are bound to bring more joy.
