My favourite monthly box has arrived! The March edition – My Little Superbox – is here to bring a smile to my face. With the box itself extolling me to make myself epic, there is a sheet of stickers with illustrations by the in-house artist along with slogans such as “What would Wonder Woman do?”
I can’t imagine a world in which I wouldn’t go straight for the intriguing roll marked “Every Girl is a Superhero” which turned out to be this t-shirt! It is marked as one size but I’m not sure it would for anyone over a UK size 14. With a wide neck, short sleeves and thin fabric this is perfect for throwing over a swim suit or bikini in summer to protect your shoulders or to slob about in of an evening if the house is warm enough (as I am now). Turns out it was perfect for wearing when I went indoor skydiving on Saturday too!
There is a 50ml tub of Miracle Sleeping Cream from Garnier Skin Naturals range. This claims to combat signs of fatigue and aging by diffusing hydrating ingredients as you sleep, leaving your skin looking rehydrated, refreshed and illuminated. I have long been after a good night cream for my face and this pot is plenty large enough to thoroughly road test.
Next is Lait Cristal by Kérastase from l’Oreal Paris. It’s a Luminous Perfecting Conditioner designed to turn hair with dry lengths and ends into Free-Flowing Silky hair. I’m not sure I like the idea of having to towel-dry my hair before I condition then rinse my hair only to have to dry it again but it’s not my problem as dry hair is not something I suffer from. I may have to pass this on to someone else to try.
I have so many lip balms littered around the house! At some point I need to get them all together and decide which ones I want to keep. Out of my three Burt’s Bees balms, the pomegranate one is going, possibly the beeswax one too (I didn’t notice it was peppermint when I bought it). This is a keeper through! From My Little Beauty comes their Stick Lèvres Nourrissant, the “perfect nourishing balm for your lips”. Sweet almond oil and Shea butter combine into a smooth, mild scent and super-soft lips.
The magazine is an engaging blend of eye-catching photos; interviews; articles; problem pages; recipes and makeup tricks. This month there are also super-cute mini bios of all our favourite super-ladies
Value-wise, the goodies approach £60, giving excellent value for money, if you include the t-shirt and stickers. Without them, the generous night cream, lip balm and sample sized conditioner still top £25 meaning that even if you don’t appreciate the lifestyle extras you so get good value for money.
