Frequently asked questions for our beauty box subscription service.
What is Little-Known Box?
Little-Known Box is a luxury beauty subscription box that ships 5-6 products to you per month, to discover, try and enjoy at home. As well as monthly subscriptions, we offer one-off boxes, gift subscriptions and limited edition boxes. We are passionate about featuring and introducing you to upcoming, niche and independent brands. You might just see some well known brands featured, but they will be little-known products or new launches! With the exception of our limited edition boxes which feature brands and products that fit the box theme.
What products will I get?
Featured brands are carefully selected and we include products such as makeup, nail products and accessories, skincare, hair products, grooming items, lifestyle and beauty accessories (with the occasional surprise thrown in!)
Do I have to order every month?
No, we also have One-Off boxes so you can order a box whenever you feel like it, if you don’t want to commit to a subscription.
How do the subscriptions work?
We have pay monthly subscriptions available, or prepay 3, 6 and 12 month plans. We also have gift subscriptions if you want to buy a subscription as a present. Have a look at our ‘How it works’ page for more details.

You can add your discount or promotional code at checkout.
My voucher code will not work
Please check that your voucher code is still valid and hasn’t expired. If you are still having problems, please contact us and we will be happy to help.
Can I find out what is in my box?
We don’t reveal in advance what the box products will be, it would spoil the surprise for you and the unboxing excitement! Sometimes we will have a sneak peek of our favourite product in the upcoming box on our website or social media accounts. You can browse our website to get an idea of the brands and products that may be featured in upcoming boxes. Limited Edition boxes fit a specific theme and therefore, the contents will sometimes be shown and therefore not always a surprise, depending on the box theme or promotion.
How should I use the products in my box?
You will receive a box insert in your box with information on each product. You can also find further information on our website for the individual products, descriptions for use and information on the product ingredients where possible.
Will I like the products in my box?
We work hard to feature a large selection of products and brands, there is something for everyone in our boxes.
Can I see a list of brands you are working with?
We will be adding names to our ‘Brands’ page as we partner with more brands. Check back soon for updates.
Where can I buy a product I like?
We will give information on our website and the box insert, showing where you can buy more products from the same brand.
What if I don’t like the products in my box?
If this happens, make sure you email us to let us know. It’s important to us to hear your thoughts and we will respond to your email. We will try our best to resolve any problems you may have with your box. Products that may not be for you, always come in useful for gifts and presents for friends!
Will I get the same product more than once?
We create boxes that are as exciting and varied as possible. Occasionally individual products may be featured twice but are likely to be different shades or formulas.
I have allergic reactions to some beauty products, or I can suffer from allergic reactions. What should I do?
Unfortunately we are not able to guarantee that your box will be free of certain substances or ingredients. We take allergic reactions very seriously but a persons allergy problems are outside of our control, and as such we cannot promise that you will not have an allergic reaction to a featured product. If you have an allergic reaction to a product, we understand you may not want to continue your subscription. If you suffer from an allergy to certain ingredients, substances or even certain brands or product types, we strongly recommend that you to carefully check the ingredients of a product before using it. If in doubt, do not use products that you think you could have an allergic reaction to.
SHIPPING, DELIVERY AND RETURNS
Where do you ship to?
We currently only ship within the UK but please check our website or sign up to our newsletter for regular updates.
What happens if I receive a damaged item?
Unfortunately some parcels do not receive careful treatment in transit. If you receive a damaged or broken item in your box, please email us and attach details and a photograph of the damaged item/s. We will arrange for a replacement to be dispatched to you as long as you contact us within 7 days of receiving your order. If an identical item is not available, we will offer an alternative item of the same or higher value.
When will I receive my order?
Monthly boxes are dispatched around the 21st of the month, you’ll receive a dispatch email with more details. Please note that this is not guaranteed and you should allow 14 days for delivery, some parcels can take longer due to items being delayed, postal delays and during peak periods such as Christmas & New Year, and bank holidays. Limited Edition boxes ship at alternate times and you will be notified of the dispatch date.
Can I return my box?
Should you be unhappy with a box, please let us know. It’s important for us to hear your thoughts and we will do our best to resolve any problems you may have with your box.
Yes you can, view our subscription options for a choice of gift boxes and subscriptions.
How is a gift subscription different?
A gift box is the same as a monthly subscription box, it is simply purchased as a gift and you can include a gift message, as well as giving us the recipients details and delivery address so that boxes can be dispatched directly to the recipient.
Are gift boxes sent at the same time as the monthly boxes?
If you purchase a gift subscription, yes they are. If you are purchasing a One-Off box as a gift, this may be sent at a different time to the monthly boxes.
Can I include a gift message?
Yes you can, you will be promoted to add a gift message when you purchase a gift subscription.

Why isn’t my item exactly the same colour?
We try to reproduce colours on the site as accurately as possible. However, different computers and cameras can reproduce colours differently so exact colour matches are not possible. We also cannot control the colour of product images given to us by brands for us to use.
