Unboxing the November 2018 Little Known Box*


I've fallen a little behind in most aspects of my life - reviews, blogging and general content being one of these key areas [honestly, going full-time freelance I thought I'd have stacks more time to dedicate to blogging & photography, but it turns out I've had about 27 tonnes of sh*te / life stuff to wade through. I'll get through it like, and I don't want to dwell & beast pure neggo into my blog; cos that's not what I'm about. So I'll close these ragingly long brackets now.] Wow

Anyway, before this post kicked off into a full on pity party for one, I was about to tell yous all about the November edition of my very favourite Little Known Box; with what was meant to be a brief apology for posting this [and the October review] a little later than I'd hoped. So let's crack on with the unboxing & get back to that plan of action.

November 2018's edit is the Party Prep box; curated to help us prepare our skin, hair, body and beauty stashes in time for the busy Christmas Party Season. The box contains 5 lux products from tried & tested LKB favourites; and from 2 new brands to the mix.

Sanatio Naturalis are one of these newbies - they're not a brand I'm familiar with either; so they definitely meet the criteria of LKB - introducing us to new, little known & independent brands guaranteed to WOW us with their results! There's a bottle of Rosehip Oil included in this month's selection from these guys; which is cruelty free, natural and suitable for all skin types

Skincare wise, in this month's box we have this, a Konjac Sponge Company Facial Sponge and a White Diamond Facial Serum from Cougar

In terms of hair products, it's another new brand this month; Le Mont Botanique, who's 2 Minute Hair Mask debuts in the Party Prep line-up. And for makeup, we've got a Saturated Colour [one brand I rly love & discovered via this subscription box] Black Multitasker Pencil; which is a multi-use eye / lip pencil perfect for smoky looks over the festive season.

Sanatio Naturalis Rosehip Oil, Full Size

I love the packaging of this product & new brand; they give it a beautifully lux yet minimalist appeal. Which I'm all about

This lightweight, luxurious oil promises to improve the appearance of scars, stretchmarks, acne marks, fine lines & wrinkles. Which is pretty much me, in a nutshell. POUR IT ALL OVER MA BODY, PLS.

Saturated Colour Multitasker Pencil, Full Size

LKB included either a red or a black pencil as part of this month's offerings - and I got the black. Which I'm happy about, as I do get through a lot of black eyeliner, being the queen of a botched wing attempt. I do have a fair few kohl eyeliner pencils, but they are proper useful, something I'm always using up and a timeless beauty tool, so I'll definitely get use out of this.

Retail Price: £3.50

Cougar Beauty White Diamond Facial Serum, Full Size

Ah, I love the thought that I'm that posh now, that I use diamonds as my skincare. Hahahaha. One can dream. This lux AF serum exfoliates & brightens, using the qualities of diamonds to produce proper bangin' results. All cruelty free & never ever tested on animals.

Retail Price: £9.99

The Konjac Sponge Company Facial Sponge, Full Size

I've had one of these sponges - this exact one, before truth be told. I think again, it was via LKB. I'm not too mad about it though, cos I used my last one to actual death and I had been considering buying myself another. 

I love the texture of these sponges and how great they leave my skin. I use mine with cleanser and to lift off the remnants of face masks & my skin feels legit 10/10 bangin' afterwards. Exfoliated, oil-free and zingy clean. Yaaaaas.

Retail Price: £8.99

Le Mont Botanique Hair Mask, Travel Size

As someone who regularly home-bleaches her hair without thinking of the consequences, I use a lot of hair masks, conditioners etc to stop it turning into straw & pure snapping off. This nourishing little babe therefore, will be of much use to me.

You use it in place of shampoo and follow it up with conditioner afterwards. Which sounds ded good to me - as this will leave my hair doubly conditioned & hopefully 2 x easier to detangle in the hair-drying phase!
