Live Naturally this April, with LittleKnownBox*


I love the start of a new calendar month - not just cos it's inevitably that bit closer to my next pay day, but also because this means it's new Little Known Box time! And you'll know from my overexcited Instagram Stories how much I love this time in my life. 

Little Known Box is one of my favourite all-time beauty subscription services ever. They consistently slay my life, month after month; with beautifully curated boxes packed full of amazing products. And as all the products you'll find nestled in their beautiful black and gold packaging are either brand new releases or products from little known, upcoming brands, it's the perfect addition to any beauty blogger's life; as you'll always be the first to know about the latest in beauty. Let's crack on with this month's offerings, so you can see exactly what I'm talking about.

Little Known Box April 2017 Review

April 2017's Little Known Box* is the 'Live Naturally' edit; featuring a whole host of ethical, green brands to help us start Spring in the best way. It boasts incredible, upcoming British brands such as Mount Purious and Made by Coopers, whose products will help us get skin on-point. My favourite item in this month's curation is undoubtedly the Medusa's Makeup Cruelty Free Lip Paint - guys, its insanely pigmented formula will blow you away! And after stalking the paints on Medusas' website, I've discovered that all the shades in this collection have cheeky names [Shag, Get Lucky, Whoopie, Hanky Panky, Cowgirl and Bang] which has made me love them even more - this kinda tongue-in-cheek humour is what I live for.

For relaxation and pampering in the bath or shower, you'll find a super cute Apple & Bears body-wash and organic bath salts from Made By Coopers; in one of two fragrances. And, excitingly enough, LKB have also thrown in a natural deodorant this month; which I'm super excited to try out. Deodorant is something we all [well, most of us!] use on a daily basis without really giving it a second thought - let alone considering the chemical nasties we're potentially rolling onto our skin. A Bit Hippy offers a cute designed natural alternative to this - which is a fab product to really test out over the Summer months.

Mount Purious Rosewater Toner, Travel Size

This brand was born after its founder, Chris, returned from a 2 year trip researching organic, eco-friendly alternatives to mainstream products. Pretty amazing back-story there, like. Cruelty free, vegan friendly and organic - with no added chemicals, preservatives or fragrance added to any of their formulas, Mount Purious products are what your skin's been dreaming of.


Little Known Box April 2017 Review Mount Purious Rose Water

This lovely Rose Water Facial Toner cleanses and tightens the pores, revitalising tired skin. I personally love these little mists to wake me up and give my skin a little pick-me-up throughout the day; especially in Summer and on holiday, to keep cool & hydrated. And I adore its bright blue, glass bottle.

Apple & Bears Luxury Body Wash, Travel Size, 50ml

Another vegan / vegetarian friendly product, this luxury body-wash smells like a dream and is the perfect size to take away on holiday with you this Summer. This month's LKB offers us one of four fragrances - and I got my hands on their Pomegranate & Aloe Vera scent; which I LOVE.


Little Known Box April 2017 Review Apple & Bears Body Wash

I love the lux, simple packaging and the logo on this product. I'll defo be packing this to take away on holiday with me; if I can ever afford to leave the country like! It's super handy and its nourishing formula promises to cleanse, nourish and fragrance your skin. Lovely.

A Bit Hippy Natural Deodorant, Full Size

How cool is this? I'm in love with the cute label designs. A Bit Hippy make vegan friendly, cruelty free plant based hair and body care products; all natural alternatives to mainstream brands - perfect for dry skin, easily irritated skin and sun damaged bodies. 


Little Known Box April 2017 Review A Bit Hippy Natural Cream Deodorant

Most deodorants use aluminium compounds [which totes aren't natural] which climb into your sweat ducts [yum] and form a plug to stop your body from perspiring. This one, however, allows you to perspire naturally. So far so good with this roll-on - I'm very interested to try it out over the Summer and see how it gets on.

Made by Coopers Bath Salts, Full Size

Made by Coopers Apothecary was launched last year and offers a line of hand-made natural aromatherapy candles, mists and spa products. This month's LKB gives us the choice of one of 2 vegan, organic bath salts in two gorgeous fragrances; either Citrus Matcha or Vanilla Rose. Regardless of which one you receive though, you're going to love these salts. Just look at that packaging!


Little Known Box April 2017 Review Made By Coopers Apothecary Bath Salts

Every single ingredient in these fab bath salts is 100% natural; using mineral-rich, organic and fair-trade compounds. And as someone who spends at least 87% of my time in the bath, they're one million percent going to be useful in my life. Yay!

Medusa's Makeup Cruelty Free Lip Paint, Full Size

I can't even cope with how amazing this Lip Paint is - and that it's totally vegan friendly, too. It's so bright and well pigmented - I've fallen deeply in love with its long-lasting formula and there's a couple of shades I've been stalking online from the collection that I flat out NEED. The colour you get in this month's box will depend on the answers you gave in your Beauty Preferences Survey - but I can tell you now, hand on heart, you won't be disappointed with whichever colour you receive! Here's a couple of the available shades this month, so you can witness the fitness.

I can barely cope with how great this Lip Paint's formula is. It's insanely pigmented and it lasts for HOURS AND HOURS [I totally wanted to make a sexy innuendo then, to tie in with Medusa's Makeup's choice of risque names, but I'll leave it out.] The fact that they've got several offers on their website rn is BEYOND tempting; just look at these swatches and you'll see why.

Little Known Box April 2017 Review

Another month, another amazing curation of goodies from Little Known Box. I just love everything about them - their packaging, social media feeds, beautifully curated collections and the fact that they're helping support smaller brands who encourage natural, cruelty free and vegan friendly beauty products. I can't recommend getting a slice of the action enough - especially as May is their birthday month; which will be a super special edition in celebration. Eek!

Remember, entering code NEW10 at the checkout will get you 10% off your order - so there's never been a better time to get involved.

Have you tried Little Known Box or any of these brands before?
