Little Known Box July 2019 - The Summer Edit*

LEGIT. Where has time gone recently? Where has Summer gone? Where has my dignity gone? So many questions, so little answers

I'm here today to review July's [yes, it's totes September by this point and yes, whilst we're here - let's just address the elephant in the room & confirm that I am definitely a terrible human / 'blogger'] Little-Known Box - which was their Summer Beauty edit. 

This post is already late enough as it is... so I'm probs going to stop rambling on and questioning my life decisions / ability to adult and crack on with the review now, okay hun?

July's LKB [the Summer Beauty edit] was one packed full of goodies to hydrate & keep you looking hawt during the mid-summer months - with some great brands and lovely makeup products to boot. Which I always enjoy discovering via these fab monthly curations. There's 5 full size items nestling in July's black & gold box of glory - with one bonus item; making it fantastic value for money.

And as a gal who gets over-excited seeing pennies on the floor & going cray in the 'Whoops!' aisle at Asda, I can guarantee this value from a very real perspective.

At this point I normally ramble on a bit more summarising the them of the box and the reason each of these brands have made the cut - but as this is already dead late, it's about 3am & the obvious [and quickest reason to explain to ya] reason being as to why these goodies have been included is that because they're all bloody brilliant & totes cruelty-free, am not going to this time. Let's just steam ahead with the weeping and professions of love, yeah?

Figs & Rouge Matte Veil Primer, Full Size, RRP £35
www.figsandrouge.com

Erm hello. PACKAGING GOALS. Figs & Rouge are a UK based cruelty-free, vegan-friendly skincare brand. New brand obsession? Check. Just check out their aesthetic AF Instagram and thank me later, k? 

I do really like this primer... it's really lightweight, matte [which I need, as I'm an oily-skinned BEAST] and quickly absorbed. And you only need the tiniest blobs to cover some serious surface area. It has an anti-blemish formula to help combat breakouts & reduce skin impurities; with its HD+ complex working on the shine situation. Quite a pricey product, but a lovely one I'm glad I've discovered.

CODE Beautiful CODE SSL Lip Liner & CODE Beautiful CODE LIP, Full Size, RRP £18 / £20
www.code-beautiful.com

I've tried this lovely brand before, so I was very pleased to see their debut in LKB. This gorgeous nude lip liner & plumping lip gloss work beautifully together; boasting cruelty-free, vegan-friendly ingredients. They're proper lil multi-taskers, with their nude tones flattering all skin-tones and the option to wear them together or separately.

CODE LIP was designed by the brand to create results similar to those of lip fillers - plumpened & hydrated pouts without the injections or high price-tags. Using the miracle qualities of super ingredient hyaluronic acid.

Oh K! Sheet Mask, Full Size, RRP £8.50
www.ohklife.com

I love Oh K!, their products and packaging are so cute. And with this mask being cruelty-free, vegan-friendly and gluten-free, it's a 3-in-1 I can't wait to detoxify my massive face with. Step 1 in this trio of facial cleansing glory is a sulphate-free cleansing wash preps the skin, Step 2 [being a charcoal fibre sheet mask] draws out impurities and the final step - the serum, moisturises. Bliss.

Merci Handy Face Mist, Full Size, RRP £4.50
www.mercihandy.com

I'm quite fond of this lil french brand. These 98.5% natural facial mists are perffffff to keep in ya bag to spritz over your person on hot days [an extremely relevant item to have included in a Summer Beauty box for sure] and are available in differing fragrances too. I think I've tried some of this company's hand sanitiser products before & fell in love with the fragrance, so I'd defo recommend checking them out.

Bonus item: WaterWipes Facial Wipes; Full-Size these would cost you about £4
www.waterwipes.com/beauty

These wipes are the purest wipes ever. In the world. Legit. They're a new release from the brand that are enriched with water, fruit extract & dead sea minerals to deeply cleanse the skin, remove makeup, mascara and impurities. They're suitable for all skin types, vegan-friendly and free from all nasties. I used mine over the weekend after a heavy night out and OMG. They were the most soothing, cooling, hydrating and most well-needed wipes my hungover skin needed and I'm in LOVE.
