Little Known Box Unboxing | The August 2018 Summer Scents Edit*


Another month, another abso bloody brilliant Little Known Box to get stuck into. This month's curation [August 2018*] is the Summer Scents edit and she has, quite frankly, blown me away with the brands & insane levels of beauty she was jam-packed with. I'm gonna share this excitement with you guys now; typing away whilst eating Nutella from the jar and humming Baby Shark like there's no tomorrow. I think I've nailed adulting, right?

A little intro to August's curation: 
You can tell immediately from this raging great flatlay that I'm going to be very giddy throughout this post, as the box contains some of my fav brands; like Technic, Monuskin and Optiat

I hate to admit it, but LKB have hit the nail on the head with their intro / theme this month. Summer is coming to a close [*weeps hysterically whilst proclaiming how much I can't cope*] but to soften the blow, August's box is full of products that've been hand-picked to help us enjoy the remainder of the sunshine, pamper and revitalise; with a selection of indulgent products.

August's LKB comes boasting a flourish of different aromas - in the shape of Optiat's invigorating, fruity coffee scrubs [I love them so bloody much, yeno], uplifting 'feel good' essential oils from Tisserand & a deluxe, spa quality Monuskin firming facial oil. To top it off, we have a super cute set of pink Vintage Cosmetic Company slanted tweezers and the fittest damn highlighter quad I've ever seen; from Technic, to help us prolong dat Summer glow. Here's a little more on each product for ya; featuring my opinions and probably overexcited swearing.

Tisserand Happy Vibes Roller Ball, Full Size, RRP £5.95
Using only 100% pure, natural essential oils; the babes at Tisserand allow us to explore the wonders of aromatherapy without pyar noxious chemicals or other nasties. I wasn't sure whether I'd be that struck on this scent at first [as lemons / zesty fragrances aren't really my vibe] but with undertones of bergamot & nutmeg in there to add a different dimension to the roller ball's aroma; I'm feelin' it.

Monuskin Firming Fiji Facial Oil, Full Size, RRP £23.95
I frigging love Monuskin yeno. I was lucky enough to work with them a little while ago [see here] and when I was proper on death's door in hospital this time last year, they sent me a little bundle of goodies to cheer me up as a kind little gesture [which legit set me off howling with all da feels.] Their products are so luxurious, effective and beautifully packaged; I'd rate literally everything I've ever tried from them as a 10/10 yeno. And that's praise indeed, coming from a miserable old crank like me! Can't wait to try this lux facial oil, which is suitable for all skin types.

The Vintage Cosmetic Company Slanted Tweezers, Full Size, RRP £8
Well, if there was ever a pair of tweezers more suited to my Instagram theme, hey? 😂 These bad lads are pink, beautifully packaged and the ideal slanted, precise shape you need when you're having a full on grade A mare with ya brows. Which is everyday of my existence. Useful, pretty and another full sized product. Wot a curation, LKB!

Optiat Body Scrub Pamper Kit, Sample Size
I proper bum a good coffee scrub. Almost as much as I enjoy drinking it [coffee itself, that is, not these scrubs - when it comes to me brews, I'm all about this proper cheap brand I get from the offy across the road that no-one else likes.] 

I adore the way the scrubs leave my skin feeling; fresh, soft and reinvigorated. They definitely help lift dead skin, remnants of fake tans past & get ya circulation going like a BEAST. I've used the Mandarin scrub already & I'm living my best life. Love you Optiat, hun xo

Technic Cosmetics Highlighter Quad, Full Size, RRP £4
Nope. Still can't cope. How amazing is this highlighter quad, pls?! And how high end does it look, given it only costs bloody £4 to buy!! I love Technic; they're one of my favourite, affordable AF, fast beauty brands - always adapting and releasing new goodies to slay the latest trends. This new highlighter quad looks absolutely incredible anddddd I will be featuring numerous new releases from this brand in an upcoming blog post, so keep them sexy peepers peeled dolls 👀
