Fall Favourites | Little Known Box, September 2017*


Although you may have read my recent post about Autumn not being my favourite thing ever [in fact, I just seem to use endless reams of swear words when describing it, cos that's the classy kinda bird I am] Little Known Box's September 2017 Fall Favourites* edit is one of my favourite things in the world ever. 

This month's products, theme and beautifully curated variety of products is spot on, and something I'm pure desp to share with you guys [even before I've managed to catch up with my life & post my August box review yet, soz for the somewhat unconventional order that these post are going to fall in!] So let's dive straight in and witness the fitness together.

Little Known Box totes get that new and independent brands are often under-represented in beauty subscription boxes. Especially these mass produced beauty boxes you see [cough*Glossybox*cough*Birchbox*cough] who only seemingly care about taking your hard earned cash, and not much else. Spilling my tea slightly, there

Their goal is to address this niche by introducing us to fantastic little-known brands [such as those specialising in ethical beauty] including; natural, organic and free-from brands - or newly released items from brands you might be aware of already. They only feature cruelty-free products too; which is good news for all the fluffy pets out there. Including my boy Clive.

This month's edit is all about Fall Favourites; with three full-size makeup products [which I always enjoy in beauty subscription boxes] - including some must have strip lashes, an award-nominated brow pencil and a newly launched lip tint; for a fresh faced, on fleek look this Autumn. Then in terms of skincare, they've thrown in some beautifully fragranced unisex products from a pretty lavish British skincare brand AND a suitable-for-all, incredibly ethical, anti-aging moisturiser. What's not to love about like, ANY of that?!

Here's what you can expect to find in September's box.

Glo & Ray Perfect Arch Sculpting Brow Pencil, Full Size, in Shade 02 Warm Brown [shade sent depends on your beauty preferences survey]

I was legit MADE UP to see Glo & Ray nestling in that iconic LKB black & gold wrapping this month - they're one of my favourite brands of 2017 and a name you'll be seeing plenty more of on the blog over the next few weeks, too. Although I've tried this brands' lipsticks and eyeshadow pigments, I've never had a go of their brow products before - and as a brow enthusiast, the shape & formula of this pencil and its dense spoolie end excites me in a big way.

My brows tend to be a cool toned brown, so I'm just tightly crossing everything that this shade works on me, because everything about this pencil's design is utter perfection. From its sleek packaging to the way every aspect of it is shaped for optimum results, its just another glowing testament of why you need to check Glo & Ray out.

Lash Unlimited Strip Lashes, Full Size [1 pair included per box, various styles available]

Erm, hello! You's ALL KNOW how much I adore Lash Unlimited and post about them all the effing time, so this month's box couldn't get any better for me, after seeing them AND Glo & Ray included in one hit! 

Lash Unlimited have over twenty different styles of beautiful strip lashes as part of their range. Below are style #7 [which are a firm favourite of mine, along with their #9s, of course] and a pair I haven't tried before, #14, just to show you a couple of examples of available styles you could be looking forward to in your Little Known Box.

Lash Unlimited's range of falsies are high quality, long lasting and super fluttery - as well as being cruelty free and vegan friendly. They're super affordable yet give professional results; bringing salon-esque smoky eye opportunities to the comfort of our homes [and budgets.] I can't recommend them enough. 

Retail Price : £3.49

Gerlinde Naturals Skin Softening Moisturiser, Travel Size

I don't think I own many day moisturisers - so this handmade, plant based, vegan skincare product will be an interesting addition to my skincare shelf. It's free from sulphates, parabens, glycols, silicones, synthetic colours and synthetic fragrances; making it as good for your skin as it smells [very.]

Little Known Box September 2017 Fall Favourites Review

This mega handy tube of moisturiser [honestly, I used so many little products like this up when I was in hospital for a few weeks recently, my skin has never looked so good!] softens, smooths and nourishes skin; which is what we all need during these truly grim, cold Autumnal evenings.

FRUU Tinted Lip Balm, Full Size [1 included per box, variety of flavours available]

I've used FRUU products before, and been very impressed with how fruity and hydrating they are. And these tinted lip balms are no different in that respect - the only change from the formula I've tried & loved before, is that these bad boys are lightly tinted! Think part lipstick, part chapstick and 100% fruity fresh fragrance - and pow; you've got it. FRUU Tinted Lip Balm.

There's 8 different flavours and shades winging themselves into this month's box - and pictured here, you can see just two examples of potential flavours you could be lucky enough to unwrap. I've been really enjoying the Rare Coral balm at the moment; it's almost good enough to eat. And leaves a fresh, matte coral tint to my lips; which I love on no-makeup days. But whichever shade you get, it's pretty much certain you're gonna LOVE it.

Noble Isle Willow Song Body Lotion, 50ml, Travel Size & Noble Isle Fireside Bath and Shower Gel, 50ml Travel Size

Noble Isle are a quintessentially British brand; based in Wales. Their range of luxurious, high quality bath, body and home fragrance products are designed with fragrance & natural extracts in mind. They're also unisex; meaning you can share them with your fella if you want [but you don't have to tell him that.] This month's LKB boasted two items from them; which was a surprise & very generous.

The Willow Song body lotion smells SO GOOD - I'm not great at describing fragrances, but it reminds me of one of my favourite all-time perfumes; which is Chloe. It's gorgeous; sweet yet sharp... I could just bathe & roll around in that scent forever. Gorgeous for Autumn; but so luxurious and lavish I'd wear it all year round.

The Fireside Bath & Shower Gel lives up to its namesake - unlike the Noble Isle body lotion, the scent of this product is spicy, cinnamon infused and very Christmas-sy. It smells like a shampoo I've used before - and something else I can't quite put my finger on; but it brings back all the feelings of nostalgia and sentiment, and will make for some lovely baths.

I'm made up to see these products included in this month's LKB; as this is a pretty high end brand, and not one I would be able to afford to try otherwise! With its luxurious packaging and legit beaut fragrances, I can see why though.

Retail Price, Body Lotion : Approx £11.17 [Full Size - £38.00 for 170ml]
Retail Price, Shower Gel : Approx £4.00 [Full Size - £20.00 for 250ml]
