We can’t quite believe it – it’s 2020! 2019 flew by – full of new brands, great subscriber feedback and some incredible edits (which you can now buy as one-offs – without needing a subscription – via our online store.) We’re looking forward to seeing what 2020 holds – and introducing you to lots more cruelty-free, ethical and independent ‘little-known’ brands over the next 12 months.
We’re excited to debut our first Little-Known Box of the year (worth over £101!) on the blog today – the ‘Winter Saviours’ edit. Curated with the colder months in mind, the ‘Winter Saviours’ box focusses on skincare; to help us refresh our routines and protect our skin from drying out. January’s edit contains all skincare; staples when it comes to protecting our complexions against harsh weather conditions. We included a cleanser, toner, exfoliator, hydrating lip balm and luxe firming body lotion to pamper & polish yourselves with. Read on to find out more.
First up, we included an Exfoliating Enzyme from one of our all-time favourite cruelty-free skincare brands MONU to help brighten dull winter skin; removing dead skin cells to reveal a smoother, glowy complexion. The YADAH Bubble Cleanser (one we’re really excited about, as a new brand to join the Little-Known Box family this month) and Seacret Spa AClear Toner in the curation help prevent breakouts and balance skin; eliminating excess sebum and oil for a clearer complexion.
The Firming Lotion we popped in this month’s box (from Figs & Rouge) helps nourish, tone and hydrate winter skin on our bodies – something which is often overlooked during the colder months, when all we want to do is get in our fleecy PJ’s under the duvet… but is super important in keeping skin healthy.
And finally, our ultimate must have during winter (cos noone wants chapped lips!) – lip balm. We included a Bloomtown Avo Mint lip product in January’s edit to keep your smile supple, soft & hydrated – whilst smelling yummy!
