February 2019 Little Known Box - The Self Care Edit*

Okay so, I blinked and the entirety of March was gone. Not ideal. I've fallen behind on what I'd class as an alarming amount of content and I'm dealing with it using Rekorderlig Strawberry & Lime Cider as a tasty coping mechanism; which I've been told isn't the way to go. Who knew?

After this whole Pipdig situation [which I mostly ignored for as long as physically possible because of how boring it is / impossible to understand] I decided I'd try & embrace having a lil rebrand and moving away from my Pipdig theme I'd loved for these past two years. And I'll tell you now huns, I 1/10 DO NOT recommend this as a way to spend ya spare time. If I thought reading about these shady activities was boring AF, having to go through and change my site's theme & formatting - and spending a decent wedge of moola I really don't have - was even worse

The point I'm eventually planning on arriving on here is that yeah - you might notice my blog has a new theme [Etsy came through] and because of this, I've actually got the teensiest bit of motivation to smash out a few new posts today. So here I am! Even if I do still need to go through and do the worst task known by mankind - even worse than having to make the bed - of reformatting all my old posts as this change has sent them all batsh*t crazy 😫

Let's get cracking on seeing what was inside my February 2019 Little Known Box then, shall we?

So, February's edit issss focussed on self care. Which is an important aspect of life that I definitely overlook... instead, I always tend to prioritise the idea of 'getting more work done' and sleeping later - something I've been speaking to a life coach about recently; to help my cluttered mind relax more. She seems good too - not like when Jez in Peep Show gets into lifecoaching & ends up wanking off that rich DJ. Like an actual qualified coach.

And as I'm just this pure angel now with zero interest in boys, I very much doubt any form of wanking off of blokes will be on the cards for me. Ever again.

The products selected for this month's Little Known Box have all been chosen to encourage us to take some time out to relax and pamper ourselves; which is pretty essential for our wellbeing. During the grim, dark nights and cold, crappy Winter [I hate this time of year - which you can find out more about in this swear-filled, angry rant on the matter] 'me' time is all the more important; which is why my pals at LKB HQ have popped goodies in this month's curation that take care of our skin, hair & nails - and ensure we get a decent night's sleep.

Feather & Down Pillow Spray, Full Size

I've wanted to try Feather & Down goodies for ages - I've had some in my life before, but they were ones I bought for my Grandma at Christmas to try and help her with her sleep. So I never got to try them

Getting a good night's sleep is vital in keeping ourselves physically healthy and in terms of our well-being and mental health. Something I learned about when I collaborated with Bed Guru on this post. And this pillow spray has been designed with exactly this in mind. Their products are infused with a signature blend of lavender and chamomile essential oils; which are known to promote a better night's sleep & for their soothing properties.

This spray smells uh-mazing. Like I can't deal with it; I'd wear it as a perfume if I could. It's so relaxing, fresh and has similar notes to some of my favourite aftershaves / perfumes [& a splash of suncream.] It triggers memories & nostalgia for me and I can't stop spritzing it.

BeautyPRO Sheet Mask, Full Size

I do enjoy a good sheet mask, so this lil hun is a welcome addition to my life. This month's LKB will contain either a Brightening, Nourishing or Rejuvenating Collagen mask - you can see I received the Brightening variant in my box; which I'm happy with, as my tired AF complexion is a bit sallow & grey atm.

These masks are suitable for all skin-types and work to improve your skin's clarity, tone and elasticity. They also boost anti-aging properties, resulting in glowy AF skin base that's perfect to apply makeup on. I can pretend to be one of those proper influencers now by using this mask before applying my makeup can't I?

Beauty & The Bear Gummies Sample Pack

These gummy vitamins are so tasty I could eat them as sweets. I don't advocate doing that, like; but they're incredibly tasty and make the boring, often forgettable task of popping multivitamins in a morning much more fun & incentivised. 

They're vegetarian-friendly, gelatine-free, cruelty free, nut free, dairy free and gluten free... and in the shape of teensy pink bears, if all those amazing benefits weren't enough to already sway you to want to try them. I'm thinking of ordering a full size tub of these at some point, as I'm aware after recent health scares that I do need to start taking better care of myself & having a proper diet.

PHB Ethical Beauty Organic Lip Pencil, Full Size

How pretty is this pinky-pastel lip pencil please? I really like PHB Ethical products; I have a few of their lip liners & eye liners that I use on-the-reg already, so this shimmery lil matte number is a welcome addition to the fam. 

Their products are all vegan, cruelty free and also swerve the inclusion of any nasties. And PHB Ethical - a family-run business - also donate 20% of profits made to charity; making supporting and using their products even better.

Bowe Organics Lash Oil, Full Size

I love minimal, chic packaging like this. The basic betch within me abso buzzes over it & the Instagram potential it holds. Cruelty free and vegan-friendly, this luxurious lash oil promises to restore health & nutrition to knackered lashes [like mine] so it's something I'm looking forward to trying out.

Castor oil in the product's formula can help lengthen & thicken lashes [pls lash Gods let this happen to me] and the inclusion of Vitamin E helps protect ya eyelashes & coats them in goodness.

Weleda Pomegranate Body Wash, Travel Size

I really like Weleda - they're a brand I've tried before and a name I've started to hear more noise about recently; which is fab. This body wash smells so fresh and sexeh, and it's vegan-friendly too. Perfect for taking away on holiday with you - it's fruity, sweet fragrance is one perfect to make new memories to.

I've really enjoyed this month's box - there's a good range of products and a few brands I've either tried & loved or wanted to try for a while included. The mix feels fresh and it was a dead interesting curation to unbox - so am one happy lil bean right now.
