July 2016 Little Known Box – What’s In The Box?

This is the third box from Little-Known Box and it is a box of firsts for them too. All 5 products in the July Little-Known Box are being featured for the first time in their beauty box.


SoapNskin’s Body Butter in Travel size is handmade in small batches. Essential oils and botanical extracts have been blended together to create products that not only smell lovely but benefit the skin too. This body butter is made with only natural ingredients and is perfect for dry skin and can also be used as an aftersun or as a night balm for your face. The body butter is thick and creamy and blends into the skin effortlessly. You really only need a small amount as it is so rich it goes a very long way. (RRP £ 6.00 Travel Size)


These HJ Manicure nail polishes are fantastic summer colours; vibrant and eye catching. These colours will look fantastic on your nails and toes this summer.The HJ Manicure polishes are fast drying and only require 2 coats to achieve a professional, long lasting colour. They are Vegan friendly, cruelty free and also free from 5 toxic chemicals. (RRP £19.00 / £9.50 each full size)


Little Known Box is also featuring a face mask for the first time in the shape of Balance Me Radiance Face Mask. It’s from an independently owned British brand that provides premium skin care products which deliver results naturally. Their products are also free from Parabens or Sulphates; it’s just packed full of natural ingredients. Their Radiance Face Mask removes impurities, brightens dull complexions and exfoliates dry skin and because this mask is 98% natural it is suitable for most skin types.


Dull skin: Skin-brightening Fruit Acid Complex gives a gentle enzyme exfoliation whilst Ground Walnut Spheres gently buff away dead skin cells
Combination skin and oily skin: Purifying Kaolin Clay draws out impurities and rebalances skin, leaving it hydrated and comfortable


Build this mask into your once-weekly skin care routine or apply during emergency pre-party preparations for an instant ‘pick me up’. Use after cleansing face; gently massage into dry skin using circular outward massage movements, leave on skin for 5 minutes then rinse skin clean with warm water, or use damp muslin cloth to remove. Pat skin dry.

(RRP £12.00 travel size 30ml)


Yet another first for Little-Known Box is this Zerreau ‘Towel Off Shampoo in Apple. This product is a brand new concept that effectively allows you to wash your hair properly, just without the need for water.

It really cleans effectively, even removing product such as hairspray, wax or gels. Leaving you with soft clean luscious locks! Zerreau is NOT a leave in product and its NOT a dry shampoo either!

How to Use

Zerreau works by applying a wet foam directly to the roots, massaging to release dirt, grease and any product into the foam, then removing whilst still wet and soapy – by thoroughly towel drying!

This is a really innovative product and ideal for the things like festivals, holidays, road trips or any time really. It has a really lovely delicate Apple scent too. (RRP £3.99 travel size)


The last product that was included in the July 2016 Little-Known box was this Odylique (formerly Essential Care) Natural Black Mascara.  This mascara is 100% natural and 88% organic mineral and it was the first mascara to be certified by the Soil Association standards.

There were also 2 samples as bonus items in the July 2016 Little-Known Box too. A Simply Argan Oil sample and an Arbe D’or Eau de Parfum sample. Also included was a £5.00 gift voucher to use on the Simply Argan website.

My Overall Thoughts on the July 2016 Little-Known box


For the third month in a row Little-Known Box has curated a fantastic beauty box bringing us innovative brands & products. I had not heard of any of the brands this month, so every item and brand was a new discovery for me and that is one of the things I love about Little-Known Box. There is not one product this month that I didn’t like or won’t use, so for me, this box is really great.

I’m excited to try the Zerreau Towel Off Shampoo because with my DDD and having had to go into hospital a few days ago, washing my hair is a struggle for me and this product seems amazing. I really can’t wait to use it. Honestly, I’m looking forward to trying everything out. So yeah, Little-Known Box have done it again. BIG thumbs up!
