Prep Your Skin for Spring | January's Little Known Box*

Another month, another blog post professing my love for Little Known Box. But seriously guys - if you're looking for a new beauty box to sign up to this year, or if perhaps your New Year's Resolution is to try more natural beauty products and get out of your comfort zone - this box is for you. And yeno what - even if neither of those things sound like you, you still need this anyway.

I've tried and tested many a beauty subscription box - I'm an online shopping maniac; I'll hold my hands up and admit that loud 'n' proud. But none of them have ever captured my heart in the same way that this company does. Month after month, Little Known Box quite simply just slay. And if you don't believe me, just search my blog - their past offerings have been unreal [and some of these boxes are still available to purchase online as one-offs, whilst stock lasts!]

This is the first Little Known Box curation of 2017, the January Edit*. This month's box focuses on the theme of 'Winter Saviours', with a whole host of lux hair, body and skin care products to help us through the doom and gloom that is January. It's cold, we're suffering from a bad case of the-Post-Christmas-Blues, we're all skint, payday has been THE MOST EAGERLY ANTICIPATED EVENT OF OUR ADULT LIVES and Valentine's is fast approaching. So now is a perfect time for a little TLC, to get ourselves feeling good for Spring. Cos contrary to the weather outside - it is on its way!

Here's what you can get your hands on in this month's box.

Tisserand Hand Cream, Full Size, 75ml
I don't know about you, but I'm reliant on hand cream to get me through the Winter. As soon as the weather goes a bit cold, the skin on my hands just seems to dry up and resemble some mad kind of lizard's scales. I have a tube on my desk at work and an emergency stash in my handbag, too. Therefore, this pretty hand cream will defo come in handy [wheyyyy, hand cream pun] for me.

Lovelaughslipstick Blog - Review of January 2017's Little Known Box

This hand cream smells really lovely and luxurious; a little like some of the night oils I've been using recently to tame my face recently. Its formula blends pure essential oils, Shea Butter, Jojoba and Aloe Vera to create a lovely, non-greasy cream. This product is vegan friendly, paraben free and 100% organic; making it suitable for everyone. Definitely something I'll use.

Bee Good Cream Cleanser & Mini Cloth, Travel Size, 30ml
Bees are awesome - and this stuff is made by them. I'm a strong believer in the healing properties of honey and in helping keep our little eco-system of fluffy buzzing bees going - so this product was one which instantly caught my eye. It comes with its own little muslin cloth, which is super useful, as I'm always losing these bad boys; but legit find them one of the most handy tools when cleansing.

This stuff smells zesty and super refreshing, and it makes your skin feel every bit as amazing, once you've wiped the cleanser off with a warm muslin cloth. This premium skincare is made exclusively using only British beeswax, honey and propolis - and has won awards for how good it is. It's suitable for all skin types, is free from all parabens & other nasties and cleanses, exfoliates, hydrates & smoothes the skin all in one hit. Lovely.

Twenty First Century Herbs Skin Balm, Travel Size
I LOVE the smell of this stuff. It's just like being in a pure luxury spa [which I obv can't afford, so have to play pretend with stuff like this at home.] With its formula containing french lavender, it's super relaxing and lovely to pop on before bed; to send you drifting off into a blissful slumber. I love its consistency and how it melts into the skin, with a fluffy feeling formula [if you get me?]

Tabitha James Kraan 4-in-1 Conditioner, Travel Size, 60ml
Now, this stuff intrigued me right away - mostly because of its packaging and how unusual, yet striking it is. I love trying new hair products; and this organic conditioner is right up my street. It promises to nourish, style and revive - which are all things my [5 years without a cut] hair desperately needs! It smells lovely; very similar to the Twenty First Century Herbs Skin Balm, actually. Fresh and natural.

Ooharr Face Mask, Full Size, 1 Sachet
I've heard of this newly launched brand before, and have heard other bloggers sing their praises - so I'm excited to finally have a chance to try one of their masks myself. You can't go wrong with a good face mask - and I've found myself running low on them recently, so this product is a very welcome addition to my Winter skin survival regime.

Ooharr harness the power of natural ingredients and essential oils in their face masks. Their selection of five deep cleansing clay and fruity cream masks are suitable for all skin types, easy to use and available in individual sachets.

Bonus Items - Rekze Laboratories Hair Wipes, Full Size + Shampoo & Conditioner, 2 x Samples
Little Known Box have included these niche products as bonus items in this month's box, as some of their lucky customers might already have a full, thick head of hair and not much need for them. I however, do not. My hair [though there's now a lot of it, given that I've not had it cut since 2011] is fine and loves to shed. Everywhere. So these products might be very useful for me.

Lovelaughslipstick Blog - Review of January 2017's Little Known Box

This month's box includes a full size pack of innovative hair growth & anti-loss wipes, plus sample sachets of their brand new shampoo and conditioner. These products are said to be fab for anyone who's seeking thicker, healthier hair - which legit sounds like me in a nutshell. So I personally am very pleased and excited to see this quirky idea included in January's curation.
