Little-Known Box

Little-Known Box is the UK’s newest luxurious beauty subscription box and you might have spotted them on your social media because they have, in my opinion, put a lot of effort into getting themselves noticed, no mean feat within a market that seems saturated with beauty boxes offering everything!

Little-Known Box

Little-Known Box

Little-Known Box is something a little bit different, every month you will receive a box of carefully selected luxurious beauty products and gifts featuring 'little-known' products, from independent, niche, upcoming and emerging brands. Chosen with ethics and wellness in mind. Having recognised that emerging and small luxury brands are really under-represented in beauty subscription boxes, Little-Known Box aim to fix this gap and use their beauty box to introduce you to some fantastic little-known brands, particularly those specialising in niche beauty fields including; natural/organic, vegan friendly, cruelty free and free-from brands.

Having caught my attention, I decided to sign up and see for myself what Little-Known Box was all about. Promising to include full and sample size luxury products from skincare, makeup, hair, body and grooming products to nail care, nail art, lifestyle and beauty accessories and with the occasional surprise thrown in! This is the first box:


Flint and Flint Moisturiser 3x (Full size 50ml rrp £42) - A rich repair cream that protects against glycation, boosts collagen and elastin production and regenerates the skin. Contains a powerful combination of active ingredients including Hyaluronic Acid, Retinol and Malikara Leaf to reverse the signs of premature ageing. Hydrates and nourishes the skin.  Whilst the packaging is quite simple and understated, to me it does seem just a little bit masculine and isn't ordinarily something I would usually pick up.


Little-Known Box


The Vintage Cosmetics Company Eyelash Curlers - These are a limited edition rose gold pair of eyelash curlers and I am quite a fan of The Vintage Cosmetics Company for their cute and kitsch packaging. What makes these curlers slightly different is that they are spring loaded. These are obviously full sized and cost around £7.00.


Little-Known Box

Medusa Makeup Lipgloss - Described as being fun, vibrant and innovative, Medusa's makeup is made in the USA, Vegan and is Paraben free.  I have shade Bite Me which is a fantastic vibrant red shade, whilst I won't be able to get any use out of it as I don't pull of red at all, a friend of mine will and it is perfect for her.  Available in 12 different shades they retail at £6.25 (Full sized product $9).

Little-Known Box

Dirtea - I am a tad obsessed with tea and coffee bath products nd Dirtea is described as being the 'original self-love tea scrub'. Dirtea products are products are tediously tested and have unique recipes formulated to target acne, scarring, stretch marks, cellulite, psoriasis, eczema, and more. Our organic tea's are freshly ground into a fine powder and combined with specific high-grade essential oils, minerals, and vitamins to create a powerful blend that works wonders for your skin. They are not only Vegan but also Paraben, Gluten, Cruelty, Phosphate and Chemical Preservative-Free. (£2.15 per sachet)


Little-Known Box

Thumbs Up Nail Wraps - I have to admit, I am not into nail wraps at all and they are everywhere right now. This set has a metallic marble gold effect which will delight some people, personally, I prefer nail polish.  Each pack contains 20 nail wraps and they are described as being easy to apply and waterproof. (£7.99 full sized product)


Little-Known Box


For a first box, I think this is pretty okay, I am not as wowed as I thought I would be, but I am not overly disappointed because there are some new brands for me to try out. A one off box costs £15.95 upon which there is a postage and packaging charge of £3.75. A monthly subscription to this box costs £14.95 and there are further subscription options available.

  2. I really like the sound of the Flint + Flint moisturiser! I think that and the Dirtea scrub are the only products I'd really use, though :/

  3. I really like the concept. There are so many boxes out there, so yes, coming up with something a little bit different is def the way to go. Personally I love ethical/organic brands - blogging has certainly opened my eyes up to the vast array that's out there. I think it quite an expensive box though once you add the p&p? Tx

  4. I wish I could get on with eye lash curlers, as my eye lashes need some help. I just find them hard to use.

  7. The cool thing is a box among boxes that is unique and has different products that haven't been heard a lot about. I love getting lippies from brands I have never heard of! Speaking of nail wraps I have to offload about 4 packages!

  8. I've had a few beauty boxes but I'm wary to invest unless I know I can use or regift the contents (nail wraps aren't a favourite of mine either).

  9. What a great box for trying out new things! I could really have done with eyelash curlers in my youth. I used to just push them back with my fingers after applying mascara LOL!

  10. Lovely things in the box, I love the idea of tea scrubs!

  11. This is a nice box to discover brands outside mainstream!

    ReplyDelete
  12. I like the fact that they are letting us try new items which are quite niche. I would love a beauty box but there are so many to chose from x

  17. OOh I haven't seen or heard of this beauty box before, it certainly looks sleek! I must say that I dont think the contents are any different to other boxes out there, they all seem to be much of a muchness these days xxx

  22. Whoo I really like the look of this box.How exciting receiving a box through the post :) Red is my favourite colour too :)

  23. I like the idea of the box getting the name of independent companies out there, especially those pushing the kinder products without parabens etc but personally prefer to buy products one at a time rather than invest in a mixed box.

    ReplyDelete
  24. Little-known boxes look like they have better contents than some of the better known boxes out there! X

    ReplyDelete
  25. I've not heard of this company before but it seems like a good gift idea for a beauty lover or a teenage girl who is just beginning to start a beauty collection. The scrub looks and sounds nice - not sure I'd use the eyelash curlers or false nails though.
    Super review and really well written. Well done!

  26. I've heard of quite a lot of subscription boxes but this definitely isn't one of them so now I'm intrigued! I actually really do quite like those nail wraps, I didn't think I would at first but after reading a bit more about them and seeing a close up photo, I actually quite like the design :)

    ReplyDelete
  27. It kooks like there's some nice stuff in there. I've never tried nail wraps, don't really get the whole craze!xx

  30. Oh I have seen this mentioned on Twitter quite a lot lately, so it's lovely to see what turned up in the box! I think it's a great way to find out about some new brands, particularly like the red lip gloss being paraben free and vegan. x

  33. I've not heard of this box before but must be exciting to get a surprise box through the door!

  34. Beauty boxes really are a craze at the minute. One I haven't dipped my unmanicured toes into yet. This box sounds fab it's a shame the lip gloss wasn't your shade though. I wish I could get creative with some nail wraps! X

    ReplyDelete
  35. The box looks great the only thing i would not be too keen on are the nail wraps.

    ReplyDelete
  36. I think it is quite expensive but I do like the sound of the tea scrub and like you am not keen on nail wraps either!

    ReplyDelete
  37. I've never heard of this one. It's quite pricey but then I suppose the products make up for the price x

    ReplyDelete
  38. I love the idea of this box. I love that you can find some great lesser known brands. I wouldn't have been too thrilled with those contents though. The eyelash curlers and the lipgloss would be the only items I would use. But definitely interested to see what is in upcoming boxes!
