Little-Known Box May Birthday Edition

May saw the Little-Known Box May Birthday Edition winging its way to their subscribers to celebrate their 1st Birthday! They very kindly sent me their Birthday Box too – thank you so much Little-Known Box!

It’s hard to believe that it’s been a whole year since Little-Known Box launched their monthly beauty subscription box. I remember waiting, not so patiently, to be able to place my order for their launch box.

Promising to bring us beauty products from lesser known, new and upcoming brands, along with some familiar ones, they’ve not disappointed. They’ve gone from strength to strength and were also featured in the May TOP 9 beauty subscriptions by ELLEUK.

Little-Known Box May Birthday Edition Little-Known Box May Birthday Edition

The Little-Known Box May Birthday Edition was jam-packed and I noticed when I picked it up, it was also rather heavy too!

So, let’s take a look at what products are within this classy black box!


Makeup Pouch – Full-Size £ 4.49

Little-Known Box May Birthday Edition

A classy black pouch with a gold zip, which matches the black and gold branding of Little-Known Box perfectly. Handy to keep your essentials in for a night out, or to just carry around in your bag. It’s perfect for all those smaller make up items and accessories that tend to get lost.


Technic Cosmetics Highlighter – Full Size £3.99

Little-Known Box May Birthday Edition

This is Technics Cosmetics new Get Gorgeous Highlighter in ‘Pink Sparkle’. A really pretty, shimmery pink to help you get your summer glow on! Plus, it’s alcohol-free and suitable for vegetarians and vegans. Technics Cosmetics have a whole range of very affordable makeup.


Nanshy Large Blending Brush – Full Size £5.95

Little-Known Box May Birthday Edition

Nanshy brushes are 100% Vegan, cruelty-free and PETA approved. This is a really lovely, soft & fluffy blending brush. It’s made with antibacterial synthetic bristles and can be used with powder, cream and primers. Just perfect for softening & blending any look and also for applying very subtle colour to the eyes. You can never have too many blending brushes; they’re just so useful for multi-tasking.


Spacemasks Eye Mask – Full Size £3.00

Little-Known Box May Birthday Edition

The Spacemasks Eye Mask is a Jasmine infused, heated eye mask, very similar to the Kao Megurhythm Steam Hot Eye Masks you can get, which are extremely popular in the Asian Beauty community.

After taking the eye mask out and looping it over your ears, you can lay back, relax and enjoy as the mask starts to warm. Infused with Jasmine, The warmth is activated by a thin layer of iron filings combining with oxygen molecules in the air. Wear for 15 minutes and you’ll be so relaxed you’ll want to drift off straight to sleep.


Seacret Spa Makeup Remover Wipes – Full-Size £ 19.95

Little-Known Box May Birthday Edition

I’m really not a fan of wipes for removing make-up. I don’t mind them but I really like to double cleanse my face, when I wear makeup, to ensure every last bit of it has been removed. Then again, I am very fussy about my skincare routine.

These Seacret Makeup Remover Wipes, are pretty good if you are in a pinch, or a rush to just take everything off. They are quite hydrating and they don’t leave the skin feeling tight or anything.

I can’t say how well they remove waterproof makeup, as I’ve not worn any yet. As makeup remover wipes go, they are pretty decent. I wouldn’t pay £19.95 for any wipes though!


Betty Hula Body Moisturiser – Full Size £12.99

Little-Known Box May Birthday Edition Little-Known Box May Birthday EditionLittle-Known Box May Birthday Edition

This Betty Hula Body Moisturiser in ‘Champagne & Spice’ smells just amazing. It’s a gorgeous shea butter body moisturiser. It also comes in Rum & Blackcurrant, which I really want to try because I just love this one! I also adore the packaging too; the 50’s vibe and colourful designs.

Fantastic to apply after bathing you will find that it absorbs into the skin easily and leaves it feeling, soft, hydrated and of course, smelling out of this world. It’s great for sensitive skins as it contains only Shea butter, coconut oil, cocoa butter, Aloe Vera and Vitamin E. It’s also good for stretch marks, scarring and soothing sunburn.

No parabens, no petrochemicals, no artificial colours, no sulphates. Suitable for Vegetarians.

They also have oils, hand creams and bath salts available, as well as some gorgeous gift sets, very beautifully packaged.

Oils of Heaven Organic Argan Oil – Travel Size £ 9.50

Little-Known Box May Birthday Edition

I’ve actually received this Oils of Heaven Organic Argan Oil before in other boxes. I’m a big fan of facial oils and I have used this oil previously before in my skincare routine and I still do use it every now and then. It’s a really good oil and has good benefits for the skin. I found it great when I had really dry and sensitive skin.

Organic Argan oil is cold pressed from Argan Kernels. Argan oil is rich in Vitamin E and essential fatty acids such as Linoleic Acid, Linolenic Acid and Oleic Acid, perfect for regenerating tissue and helping the skin retain its natural moisture.

Ingredients: 100% Organic Argania Spinosa L. kernel oil


Overall Thoughts About Little-Known Box May Birthday Edition

Little-Known Box May Birthday Edition

I thought the Little-Known Box May Birthday Edition was a really lovely box to celebrate their one year Birthday.

A nice assortment of skincare, body care and makeup, to pamper and treat us. The bonus make-up pouch was a really nice addition too. I really love that they kept it classy and simple, with the plain black and gold. It is perfectly fitting with their branding. I definitely think less is more with things like that, and if there’s one thing Little-Known Box do well, it’s being classy!

The stand out product for me in the Little-Known Box May Birthday Edition was definitely the Betty Hula Body Moisturiser – such a lovely discovery! I would love to try more of their products!

  • Happy Friday everyone!! ⠀ ⠀ I know a lot of people have to have their coffee first thing before they get going for the day. ⠀ ⠀ Me?

  • I'll admit I am a sucker for a good face mask. Even more so if it's a honey one. 🍯 😍⠀ ⠀ This @farmacybeauty Honey Potion had been on my wishlist since I first came across it on Instagram ages ago. All I can say is it did not disappoint. Actually it did, in fact, exceed my expectations! ⠀ ⠀ I love watching the honey gooey texture change from a golden hue to creamy white when you start to massage it into your skin as it gets warm. ⠀ ⠀ After 10-15 mins it's ready to rinse off. Personally, I prefer to gently remove with a damp cloth, then pat dry.⠀ ⠀ My face always feels so very soft afterwards. It's suitable for all skin types but especially those that are dry, dehydrated and dull, which is pretty much my skin all over. I do feel like my skin looks more radiant as well as feeling nice and hydrated after using Honey Potion. ⠀ ⠀ I'd like to also mention the packaging, which is just beautiful - and I adore that the spatula/lid is magnetic too! 😊⠀ ⠀ This was a bit of a luxe purchase for me as I ordered it from Beautylish, along with some other skincare goodies that I wanted to try. I loved that I could split the total into 3 payments with them too. 🙂⠀ ⠀ Have you tried Honey Potion or anything else from @farmacybeauty?⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ #honeypotion #farmacybeauty #skincare #skincareroutine #skincarecommunity #skincarejunkie #skincareproducts #skincareobsessed #skincarenatural #skincareluxury #facemask #facemasks #farmacy #propolis #royaljelly #honey
  • {gifted} I don't really like wearing foundation so this 'Feel Like Honey Moon Skin Base' by @touchinsol_ldn is perfect for me. It's not only a great base to use under your makeup but also makes your skin glow all on its own! 😍⠀ ⠀ I happily wear this without feeling the need to put foundation on, or even a BB or CC cream. ⠀ ⠀ Of course, it is a honey & collagen-based primer with a host of natural extracts & vitamins, so no wonder it makes the skin look, radiant and, for want of a better word, bouncy! 🍯 ⠀ ⠀ What's your favourite primer/base to wear alone or under makeup?⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ #touchinsol_ldn #mmcl_ldn #primer #skincare #theinstagramlab #howyouglow #discoverunder20k #koreanskincare #rasianbeauty #koreanbeauty #kskincare #asianbeauty #skincareaddict #instaskincare #theblogtribe ⁣#화장품그램 #ABMhappylife #화장품추천 #스킨케어⁣ #abcommunity #abbeatthealgorithm #kbeauty #abskincare #abblogger #instablogger #kbeautyblogger #petitejoys #theeverygirl #touchinsol⠀
  • {prgifted} Perfect for #pinkwednesday #onwednesdayswewearpink are this @neekskinorganics vegan moisturiser and vegan cleanser. They have been a dream to use.
