Little Known Box- June 2017 Review

Little Known Box June 2017

About the box

£14.95/month, plus £3.75 P&P

What I got
This month was no less of a packed box than last month, so I am really pleased again.

Manna Kadar Beauty Trifecta Brow Eye Cheek Powder

Manna Kadar Beauty Trifecta Brow Eye Cheek Powder

Manna Kadar Beauty Trifecta Brow Eye Cheek Powder Swatch

This is a brand I saw previously in a Love Me Beauty box (link here)- this is a Manna Kadar Beauty Trifecta Brow Eye Cheek Powder (full size, £14.95). This is a new launch, apparently so new I couldn't even find it online. The shade is a cinnamon brown, and it's meant to be able to be used as a brow powder, an eyeshadow and a bronzer. It's very soft and with little fallout.

Balm Balm Multi Purpose Lip Balm

This is another thing I've seen before, although not this exact product. It is the Balm Balm Multi Purpose Lip Balm (full size, £5.50). This is 100% natural and organic and contains nourishing shea butter, sunflower, beeswax, jojoba, calendula, and rose geranium oil. I'm not keen on rose scents but it doesn't smell too strong so I might still use it.

Samol Herbal Hair and Scalp Oil

I have never seen a product like this before and find it very intriguing- Samol Herbal Hair & Scalp Oil (travel size, 10ml, £7.19). It comes in a little dropper bottle, and it does smell very herbal. Samol products are 100% natural, cruelty free and free from parabens. I would probably use this to damp down my frizz between washes and maybe on my dry ends. You can use it on your scalp too but I probably wouldn't if you have oily scalp already.

Amie Exfoliating Polish

This brand is a regular in subscription boxes, to the point where I kind of get a bit of fatigue from seeing it. However, they are a lovely brand which are vegan friendly and suitable for sensitive skin. This is the Amie Exfoliating Polish (sample size, 25ml, worth £1.48). This contains rice granules as the exfoliating element so it is planet friendly- no nasty microbeads. I'm not keen on exfoliators like this, I prefer chemical exfoliants like salicylic acids as it doesn't agitate my skin. I know a few people who will like this though.

Africology Tonic Anti Reactive

For this item you would either receive the cleanser or tonic, and I received the tonic. This is the Africology Tonic Anti Reactive (full size??, £5.00?? bit of confusion on the information card). This is an astringent skin clarifying tonic spray which contains watercress and witch hazel. I think given it contains witch hazel this could be quite drying for some skins but my skin can definitely take it and I will love this stuff. It also contains Bladderwrack and Rooibos leaf extracts to help calm and soothe.

Native Unearthed Natural Deodorant

The final item is the same type of item I received in a Pip Box not long ago- a natural cream deodorant. This is the Native Unearthed Natural Deodorant (sample size, 30ml, approx. £3.49). You're meant to sort of scoop a bit out with your fingers and put it on your skin. I'm still sceptical as to whether this will work for me but I really will try it as I'm intrigued. This contains only 7 ingredients, with the slightest hint of lavender detectable when you sniff.

Final thoughts

Little Known Box June 2017

Little Known Box is showing that it always sends a completely full to the brim box with no teeny tiny samples. Even the sample size products are good sizes and there is a great variation of things. I am not sure if I'd call Amie little known but maybe that's just because I've read about every subscription box known to man and I'm jaded! I still love this box and will rave about them to pretty much everyone. My quest to go completely cruelty free with beauty products if continuing well.
