Little Known Box | The May 2019 Birthday Edit*

Ah, it's that time again ♥️ Another month, another Little Known Box* to unwrap & weep over. If you follow me on anything ever or have read my blog before, you'll know of my intense love for all things LKB & how this undying loyalty now goes wayyyy back... I can't quite believe it's been multiple years we've worked together & that this May, Little Known Box are actually celebrating their 3rd birthday

3 YEARS. That's three whole years of these incredible curations, indie brands & ethical ethos' plopping through my postbox every month & I can't actually cope... #blessed

To mark the occasion, LKB are gonna be celebrating this month with giveaways & special offers, as well as with this fab birthday inspired box. This might be a slight spoiler, but I'd say to keep an eye on my socials - as well as theirs - this week, if you're interested in these fun celebratory competitions... πŸ‘€ And with that, let's delve right in shall we huns?

This month's box is a gorgeous blend of 4 full-size products & celebratory inspired treats; a really lovely mix of products that were proper mint to unwrap. The Birthday Edit is a properly nice selection of skincare, makeup, fragrance & yumminess which gets a huge thumbs up from me. Prosecco [lip topper] Rum [... and blackcurrant handcream] 24k Gold [and caviar face mask] & yummy Candy Kittens vegan sweets. All the best ingredients for a party, huh

The bangin' Betty Hula handcream smells like a dream and the full-sized makeup products in this month's edit are perfect for Summer makeup bags & celebrating. And of course, no partay is complete without flowers & sweet treats [and maybe a party bag or 2] - which are served up in May's box in the form of three newly released mini perfumes from Yardley London & the aforementioned sweets of glory.

Betty Hula Hand Cream, Full Size, RRP £4.99
www.bettyhula.co.uk

I love this stuff - it smells like a tropical holiday paradise andddd it's anti-bacterial; meaning it's ideal to lash in ya bag to keep your hands hydrated and safe from germs when you're out & about. It's not really oily, greasy or thick - it's absorbed quickly by the skin to leave ya hands feeling pure soft. Not like those slippery hand creams I've used before, where when I've tried to write with a pen later, my hands have pure skidded down it & left me useless πŸ˜‚

Cougar Beauty 24k Gold & Caviar Face Mask, Full Size, RRP £17.99
www.cougarbeautyproducts.com

Bit posh this, innit? I can also confirm it smells really nice... not fishy like caviar, in case you had your concerns! Cruelty-free, ethical AF & dead luxurious, I'm really excited to lavish me skin in this loveliness. The goodness in this mask works to draw out impurities from your complexion [ie my entire face] and hydrate; banishing unwanted dead skin cells. And I do love a good facemask.

Phase Zero Makeup Lip Topper, Full Size, RRP £5.50
www.lovemebeauty.com/store

OMG CAN WE JUST TAKE A MOMENT PLS 😍 How stunning is this sparkly lip topper in the shade 'Prosecco Kiss' - and how fab is its packaging too?! Can't cope. I've discovered a few bits  now from Phase Zero [who I also didn't realise were Love Me Beauty] thanks to LKB & I'm loving it. It's iridescent, it's non-sticky and it's pretty much my everything in life. 

Me? Overdramatic? Dunno what you mean hun πŸ™Š

Honeypie Minerals Mineral Blusher, Full Size, RRP £7.99
www.honeypieminerals.com

If I had a makeup brand, this would be my aesthetic. Honeypie's social feeds, their stationery, their natural ingredients πŸ™Œ LOVE.

Cruelty-free, vegan friendly and made from 100% pure, natural minerals, I'm really excited to try this blusher & live my best life. I might be wrong here - as I've tried just a few bits of makeup in me life as a fossil & some kind of 'blogger' and my memory is as full of holes as those new Jaclyn Hill lipsticks are 🍡... but I don't think I've used a loose blush before. Very excited to dip my new Kitstars makeup brushes into the mix and get blending.

Yardley London Perfume Trio, Travel Size, £20 per full-size bottle
www.yardleylondon.co.uk

Yardley aren't a little known brand but these scents from their 'Flowerful' collection are a brand new launch - which I'm super excited to try out. I love fragrance and how it can affect your mood & associate itself so powerfully with memories. And these little huns are created with a vegetable derived base with 90% natural ingredients, so they're the gift that keep giving tbh.

SWEETS! YAAAAAAAAS! MY SWEET TOOTH IS REJOICING & my cruelty-free, gluten-free radar is beaming its bloody head off.

Well, I think after that unboxing it's pretty obvious why I love this beauty box so much, isn't it? Ethical, cruelty-free beauty & skincare products that are either brand new to the market or from small, indie brands. This is why I love LKB so much

Happy 3rd birthday Little Known Box - I've loved partying with you with this box and I can't wait to carry the good times on with some fun giveaways & social celebrations πŸŽ‰
