My Little Gypset Box - Review

It's time for the August My Little Box review, a little bit later than planned but time has been getting away from me this month! The August theme is 'gypset', I admit when I read the box I was a bit like eh, what is gypset? Do they mean gypsy? Having a quick google it would appear that 'gypset' is a fusion between the carefree and relaxed life of gypsy and the glamorous life of the jet set.

As always this months box design was gorgeous and looked like such a happy box from the outset if that makes any sense!


More and more I am loving the little quote cards that are enclosed, I'm going to start keeping the ones I love to frame and display around the house I think.



First item was one that I really wasn't keen on initially. I'm not really a boho person and this design is really not me.....but once I'd actually started to use it for a few makeup bits and pieces I've decided that despite the design it's very handy! No price on the info card unfortunately!


Next up is these gorgeous multi use hair ties/bracelets. Love these, they are really soft with pretty patterns and I like that they can be worn in the hair or as a bracelet when not in use as a hair tie. Again no prices included on these so I'm unsure of their value. Great item to be sent.



On to the beauty items, first item is a really nice Korres Body Milk in Bergamont Pear (RRP for 200ml £10.00), this is a fab item, it smells delicious and is really light and moisturising, perfect for a Summers day.


The second item I was soooo disappointed to see, So Susan Colour Hybrid Lip Colour (RRP £14.50), as I have mentioned previously when we have received this brand in Glossybox I have been far from impressed, the packaging is usually cheap and the product itself not worth the RRP (in my opinion). Admittedly this item isn't too bad, but I am really not a fan of the brand so I hope that we don't see many more of this brand appear in future boxes.



The last item is My Little Beauty Bronzing Powder, again no RRP on this item which is unusual as there usually is costing on the product card, I couldn't even find it online. Anyway, this is quite a nice bronzing powder with a slight shimmer to it so a nice item to prolong the Summer glow (if you have one!). Lovely packaging too which I do always find with the My Little Beauty items, they are generally great items.




I have to admit this box has left me feeling a little underwhelmed, it's not been the best in my opinion but then it's going to happen once in a while as you can't be happy with every single item in these boxes! Never mind, there is always next month!

What did you think of the items sent in this months box?

  1. We've always been intrigued by these boxes but it seems a bit hit and miss. So we might study a couple of months boxes and see if we want to join in as well. Great review #TriedTested

  5. I have looked at these boxes before as a gift for my sister as she would love these types of things. I agree with you that they do look a little underwhelming and i think i would be tad disappointed if i had of received it. I get the PinkParcel every month and do find that they are hit and miss month by month. One month its great and you love all the products, other months you can take or leave them. Thanks for sharing the products as iam definitely thinking about ordering one! :0
