My Little Road Trip Box
This months theme is all about travel and taking the time out to explore. The box came with it's usual combination of My Little World booklet, 2 lifestyle bits and a selection of beauty bits.
My Little World features an interview from globetrotter Lily Rose, as well as some interesting beauty articles and even a word search.
A sweet little item is the ready-to-send notebook. This is a new and creative spin on the classic postcard. Instead of sending your loved one a one sided postcard you can now send them a little notebook, meaning you can share all of your amazing stories. I think this is a really great idea and it's not something I have ever seen before, I know it's something I would love to receive.
The beauty bits
I think that this is the best box I have ever received beautywise. Usually you only get 3 beauty products inside each box but this month I got a bonus item, which is a set of DCER Golden Temporary Tattoos. Metallic tattoos have been very popular this summer with what feels like every blogger giving them a go. I haven't tried any yet so I'm looking forward to seeing how they look and how long they'll last for.
The product I was really excited to see when I opened up my box was the Essie nail polish in Boom Boom Room. Essie polishes are always fantastic quality and they last for a long time on the nails. This is a lovely barbie pink shade which is going to be great for my holiday next month.
Another product that's going to be ideal for my trip is the mini Garnier Micellar Cleansing Water. I use this cleaner every morning to remove any left over products from the night before. Having this handy travel size will mean that I don't have to my large bottle with me. However one thing I would say about this is that it's a shame the bottle is an 125ml size because it means you can't take it in your hand luggage when traveling abroad.
From My Little Beauty this month comes Sobert D'ete - Gelee Apres-Soleil (Summer Sorbet - Aftersun Body Gelee) this is a nice gel texture cooling moisturiser. It sinks into the skin quickly which is something I look for in an aftersun because there is nothing worse then feeling sticky. The Sorbet has a nice suitable sweet scent with a light floral element.
The last item in the box and possibly the main feature of the box is the Travel Organiser. This is a useful folder/ wallet for whenever you travel. Having separated sections for your cards, money and passport means it's easy to keep yourself organised and makes traveling a little less stressful. One thing that's slightly disappointing about this is that it's made from a plasticky, PVC material which I don't think will last that long and also feels a little cheap. However having said that being a water resistant material may come in handy.
