April My Little Box Review

I really like the April My Little Box. It arrived a bit later than usual but it was definitely worth the wait. I like the ‘Garden’ theme and it feels very seasonal for spring. It’s definitely up there with my favourite boxes since I’ve been subscribed.

Accessories

Bandana Scarf

I’m not usually a massive fan of the clothing accessories they put in the boxes, but I really like this bandana. It has a really cute forest green print and I think I will wear it a lot.

It also came with a sheet with some ideas of different ways to wear it.

Fruit Shaker Water Bottle

This bottle has a removable ‘infuser’ section in the middle that you can put fruit in to flavour the water. I actually bought something very similar from Homesense last weekend and I now wish I hadn’t!

It’s a bit smaller than the one I bought so it’s much more convenient to take out with me in my handbag (though I’m not convinced it’s water-tight).

I bought some frozen summer fruits to put in the infuser because I thought it would work out cheaper than using fresh fruit. The summer fruits give the water a really nice flavour and turned the water a purple, reddish colour, so it was almost like drinking squash.

Garden-themed food accessories

Fitting with the Garden theme of the April My Little Box, they sent a yearly calendar that shows when particular fruits and vegetables are in season. I’ve stuck this on our fridge and I think it will be helpful when we plan our week’s meals.

I also got a shopping list notepad with a couple of fruit water recipes at the front.

Ape Coconut Bites

I’m not a massive fan of coconut but I was quite surprised that I really liked these. I think food and drink items are good things to include because they help give the boxes a bit of variety.

Skincare

My Little Beauty Vitamin Shot

As always, I love the My Little Beauty products and this was no exception.

The Vitamin Shot is a face scrub. I use face scrubs almost every day so this was definitely something I was looking forward to trying.

It smells really good and feels like it’s much more exfoliating than other face scrubs I’ve used before. It’s a shame that My Little Beauty doesn’t ship to the UK as I would buy a lot of their products if I could.

My Little Beauty Bain De Soleil

This is a gradual tan body lotion. I’ve tried a few different types of these before, so again, it’s something I appreciated getting in my box.

I have used it once and after a day I noticed quite a subtle tanning effect. It’s really smooth and smells very sweet (probably too sweet for some people but I like it).

Mixa Restoring Body Lotion

I’ve not heard of this brand before and I’m yet to try it, but I think a good body moisturiser is a great idea to send in the box for spring.

Overall, I really liked the April My Little Box and the variety of things included.

The only negative with this box is that there were no makeup products. However, I think the appeal of My Little Box lies in the variety of products they send, rather than just sending beauty and skincare products. And on that front, I think the April box definitely delivered.
