Little Known Box- July 2017 Review

Little Known Box July 2017

About the box
Little Known Box sends you around 5-6 products every month from brands that may be niche, independent or less known. This includes categories of items such as nails, hair, makeup, skincare, and more.

£14.95/month, plus £3.75 P&P

What I got

Zerreau Towel Off Shampoo Foam Coconut

This first item I was a bit like 'awww' because I've had this before in a previous box this year, but at least it's a different scent (last one was apple)- this si the Zerreau Towel Off Shampoo Foam in Coconut (travel size, 70ml, £3.99). The scent is very light, as is the foam itself. I like the idea of this but I wouldn't want it to get my hair too wet as I might as well just wash it then.

Merci Handy Face Mist

Unfortunately I just received this in this months You Beauty Discovery Box, this is the Merci Handy Face Mist (full size, 30ml, £4.00). It is a lovely scent and very refreshing on your face, although it's a pain to get it after another box featured it in the same month. Merci Handy seems to be a favourite in subscription box curator circles.

Merumaya Youth Preservation Moisturiser

This is the Merumaya Youth Preservation Moisturiser (travel size, 10ml, £14.50). I'm only 27 so I'd like to think my youth is fairly well preserved for a few years yet, and to be honest with my oily acne prone skin this probably isn't a product suited for me. This will no doubt be well received by my mum or sister though. This moisturiser contains SPF 20.

Cougar Beauty 24 Hour Liquid Lipstick Cocoa

Cougar Beauty 24 Hour Liquid Lipstick Cocoa Swatch

There are two lip products in the box this month, the first being this Cougar Beauty 24 Hour Liquid Lipstick (full size, £6.99). Everyone received the shade Cocoa, as shown in my swatch above. It dries down to a matte finish, and is a pinky brown nude sort of shade. I'm kind of disappointed that the lipliner which they also sent (below) doesn't match as that would have been like a lip kit in a box! Opportunity kind of missed there. Still, this shade and formulation is right up my street and I think the price is excellent.

Odylique Pink Lip Liner

Odylique Pink Lip Liner Swatch

As I said above, there is another lip product- the Odylique Pink Lip Liner (full size, £12.50). I would have loved if this matched the liquid lipstick, but unfortunately this is a very deep pink and wouldn't really go with it. It's quite a creamy, smooth formula and has the added bonus of being free from chemicals and cruelty free. The price leaves a little to be desired but I would still be interested in checking out their other makeup products.

Final thoughts
This box wasn't a favourite of mine (I think July may not be my month!) but I think that's more personal preference and because I get a lot of different subscription boxes. If this is the only subscription you get, this was actually a pretty good all rounder. Little Known consistently sends full size and larger travel sized items which I think is brilliant value for money and keeps me coming back for more every month.

  1. That Cougar liquid lipstick is such a lovely versatile color. But I agree, they missed the boat by not sending a coordinating lip liner. And it's such a bummer that you got a few repeats in this box! I'm honestly not sure what the face mist is for...


  2. Aww it's a pity you were disappointed by this box! I love the sounds of the face mist but that's very annoying that you have it already! That why I'm always nervous about subscription boxes as I'm scared I'll get products I don't like!
