What is inside the July box:


Merumaya Youth Preservation Moisturiser, Travel Size 10ml – The first thing I noticed about this cream is the gorgeous scent that it leaves on your skin, this soaks in well helping your skin with blemishes, spots and keeping you looking youthful. I personally found that it kept my skin hydrated and smelling amazing…it is too early to tell if it helps my spots and wrinkles but I’m going to keep using it all. I love that it has a built in spf 20 so when we eventually get some sun this summer you will be protected from UVA/UVB, the cream looks thick but rubs into your skin with ease, some of the ingredients are sunflower seed oil, Vitamin E, Baobab and Hyaluronic Acid. Verdict 8/10.

Odylique Pink Lip Liner, Full Size – I don’t tend to use lip liners a lot but this one looks great…a nice sized pencil packaged well in black with silver writing, this lip link is organic fair-trade and approved by PETA for being cruelty free. They are a UK brand who managed to be certified by the soil association for their standards in creating a gorgeous pink lip liner that contains no harsh chemicals and is 100% natural. I found that this liner lasted most of the day but lasted a lot longer then my lipstick did, if you don’t use Lip liners a lot then this pencil is a handy size…not too long so you can create a stunning night or daytime look. Ingredients used are Jojoba, Sunflower, Shea Butter and calendula for a nice smooth application that will keep your lips in tip top condition. Verdict 9/10.

Merci Handy Face Mist, Full Size – I do love a refreshing face mist in the summer to help cool you down while at the beach or during a long hot dog walk, simple spray a small amount over your face for instant cooling effect. This is handy to keep in your bag for the summer, made in france there is 3 fragrances called hello sunshine, flower power and chill out. Enjoy the cool summer days made easier with a water spray…just remember to close those eyes. Verdict 9/10.

Cougar Beauty 24 Hour Liquid Lipstick, Full Size – I have had cougar lip products before so I know this brand is amazing at long lasting lipstick, this one is no exception…it is quick drying and no matter is you have a drink or eat dinner this lipstick won’t budge. When this lipstick dries it is a silky soft product on your lips that will hydrate them too leaving you with super soft lips during and after use, I received the cocoa nude brown colour but they also have Calypso (Bright Red), Mulberry (Dark Plum), Candy (Light Pink), Rioja (Dark Red). If you haven’t tried Cougar products then I would recommend you do, you will not be disappointed. Verdict 10/10.

Zerreau Towell Off Shampoo, Travel Size – I have been lucky enough to have received a Zerreau Shampoo before and have a Strawberry one that smells amazing…I was so excited to have opened the box and saw a Coconut one which is one of my favourite flavours and this smells amazing. Dry shampoo has never worked for me in my thin hair…but this is a foam that you rub into your hair that makes it wet and as it dries it will no longer be greasy. I took this shampoo with me away camping last year and it will be coming with me this year too! this shampoo can be used on all hair types including afro hair. Verdict 9/10.

Little Known Box have been around just over a year and I feel very lucky to have been there from the start and have seen this box grow into an amazing top box in the subscription world. If you are considering subscribing to this box then honestly you will love it, it showcases upcoming brands that are cruelty free which I have enjoyed.
This month’s box has not let me down, it is an amazing box of some great goodies… I love the range of products in this July box and I know you will too. If you want to subscribe to the August box head to Little Known Box.
