With Summer drawing to a end, we thought now would be a great time to put together a summary of this season’s Little-Known Boxes – a round-up of some of our favourite brands, products and picks from the last few months.
With some fantastic brands (such as Oh K!, MONU, Phase Zero & Code Beautiful; to name just a few) we’ve loved Summer’s curations… so if you’re new here or haven’t seen the contents of previous boxes, this one’s for you. Or – if you’re already subscribed, leave us a comment with your thoughts on our summer edits below – what have you loved seeing in these boxes? Any stand-out brands you’ve enjoyed? We’d love to hear your feedback.
June 2019’s ‘Sun, Sea, Sand‘ edit was curated with Summer travel in mind; featuring five gorgeous multi-tasking, travel-friendly & flight-safe products. Create bronzed and highlighted looks with the ‘Make Me Shimmer’ Saturated Colour highlighting pencil & the bronze toned Phase Zero eyeshadow we included – both full size products we had some great feedback on.
On the skincare front, June’s Little-Known Box included MONU skincare, Faith in Nature & Oh K! products. The MONU Firming Moisturiser and Oh K! Sheet Mask work to leave skin radiant & glowing; while the beautifully scented Faith in Nature Body Wash reminds us of tropical climes & Summer vibes. Our subscribers particularly enjoyed the bubbling, foaming Oh K! sheet mask included in this month’s edit – a novel yet effective way to refine & declog congested skin!

July 2019 saw the drop of one of our most popular curations to date – the ‘Summer Beauty‘ edit. With 5 full sized items and a bonus gift worth over £85, this box wasn’t one to miss out on (and if you did & you’re suffering with some serious FOMO right now, you can order a one-off July box for a limited time only by clicking here.)
Our ‘Summer Beauty‘ edit featured beautiful skincare from UK brand Figs & Rouge, luxe makeup from CODE Beautiful & a few other Summer essentials from Merci Handy, Oh K! and Water Wipes.
Our subscribers really enjoyed discovering gorgeous skincare brand Figs & Rouge this month – with the Matte Veil Primer we included in July’s edit helping to keep makeup in place & shine-free during warmer weather. The two-full size luxury lip products from CODE Beautiful were also popular – plumping, defining and adding a juicy splash of colour to pouts nationwide.
On the skincare front, the 3-in-1 Oh K! Sheet Mask we included refreshes skin; leaving it hydrated & nourished after a long day in the sun – with the Merci Handy Face Mist being perfect for a quick and cooling refresh whenever you need it. Not to mention how refreshing & soothing this month’s bonus item – Water Wipes – are!
Our most recent edit – the August 2019 ‘Sunkissed‘ curation, introduced two brand-new names to the LKB family; Flawless Professional Vegan Beauty & Living Pure Natural… which we were super excited about, and which you guys have loved too.
August’s edit included 6 gorgeous products perfect for late Summer looks; all chosen with keeping skin hydrated, radiant and ‘Sunkissed’ in mind.
The Phase Zero Liquid Lipstick we included (a brand new launch for them) and the gorgeously shimmery Manna Kadar Sunkiss Clam Shell work perfectly to enhance your tan & introduce a splash of colour into your look.
To keep skin hydrated & glowing, last month’s edit included two luxury Seacret Spa products – a tube of the brand’s best-selling Pomegranate Body Lotion and a bar of their Mineral Soap too (a bonus item for you!) Seacret‘s products are packed full of natural minerals found exclusively in the Dead Sea; treating your skin to unparalleled levels of nutrition.
Flawless Professional Vegan Beauty are a UK-based, vegan-friendly, cruelty-free cosmetics brand (who you can read more about in this post.) And Living Pure Natural follow a similar ethos; creating luxurious products that combine science with the wisdom of traditional skincare. They too use only natural ingredients in their collection; creating fragrant, gentle & effective products which are kind to people – and the planet.
And that’s a wrap! Summer 2019, summarised & completed. We hope you’ve loved the products & brands we’ve included in the last few months’ worth of Little-Known Box… and we’re super excited for you to see what we have planned for Autumn / Winter 2019 too.
