Your Beauty Treats

The Cornish Seaweed Bath Company Pure Seaweed Soap – Full Size £2.50

Little Bit Lavish 'Mermaid Wishes' Launch Box Review - September 2016

If you’re going to be a Mermaid, you better get used to being around a little bit of seaweed, but don’t worry it doesn’t have to be the slimy brown kind you can find all along our British coastlines because thanks to The Cornish Seaweed Bath Company you can now enjoy all the therapeutic benefits of seaweed without needing to go anywhere near the sea!  Combining natural cold pressed Seaweed extract with Coconut Oil, Castor Oil and Essential Oils of  Bergamot, Lemongrass and Lime – this Pure Seaweed Soap can help relieve skin conditions such as psoriasis, eczema and acne, ease muscular pain, rheumatism and arthritis and stimulate circulation making it the perfect bath time treat and it not only helps keep your skin looking and feeling good – it also smells amazing too!  I suffer with a lot of aches and pains (to put it mildly) and am always looking for products to help with this without irritating my sensitive, eczema prone skin and this little treat is a great way to tackle both these problems with one sweet smelling, antioxidant rich soap bar and I love it!

Gifts by Little Miss Mermaid Bath Fizzy – Full Size £2.25

Little Bit Lavish 'Mermaid Wishes' Launch Box Review - September 2016

How cute is this bright blue Mermaid Bath Fizzy?  I love a good bath bomb and this passionfruit fragranced, glitter coated Mermaid shaped bath time treat slowly dissolves and fizzes away in your tub leaving you soaking away in tropically scented, turquoise coloured water that sparkles away as you relax!  All Little Miss bath bombs are handcrafted and made in small batches to ensure both product quality and amazing attention to detail and as they are also free from nasties like SLS you can be sure that they don’t just look pretty, they are gentle on even the most sensitive of skins too!  I love this gorgeous little Mermaid Bath Melt it smells absolutely gorgeous and I love the fact it leaves your skin shimmering with glitter when you’re finished pampering!

Organic Surge Two Minute Moisture Hair Mask – Full Size £8.95

Little Bit Lavish 'Mermaid Wishes' Launch Box Review - September 2016

Daily life and regular heat styling can take the life out of your locks, leaving you with dull, frizzy and dehydrated hair that is in need of some well needed TLC and I have to say that sums up my hair right now, so this Two-Minute Moisture Mask is perfect for my thick, unruly hair and a very welcome addition to my first Little Bit Lavish Box!  Organic Surge make skin loving, environmentally friendly products that are crammed full of naturally active ingredients that really work and this rich and nourishing mask gives your hair a hit of emergency hydration in just two minutes!  Super-charged with pure coconut oil and plant extracts, it works to penetrate the hair shaft, targeting weak or damaged areas and helping to protect hair from the inside out, leaving you with smooth, manageable hair that shines with health and vitality.  I love this rich, creamy mask and it works so well on my hair which is oily at the roots but dry and frizz prone at the ends, so this two minute mask is perfect to keep my long hair looking healthy at all times – Which is a must have for any Mermaid in the making!

Your ‘Mermaid’ Treats

Accessories by Flavia Abalone Shell Necklace – Full Size £19.00

Little Bit Lavish 'Mermaid Wishes' Launch Box Review - September 2016

Every good Mermaid needs a Shell Necklace to finish her fabulous look so Little Bit Lavish have included a gorgeous Abalone Shell Pendant in their Mermaid Wishes Box which is not only stunning to look at – it also has therapeutic benefits too!  With its beautiful pastel rainbow of colours – the Abalone or Paua shell is said to enhance feelings of peace, beauty, compassion and love, soothing the nerves and encouraging a calm demeanor.  Designed by Accessories by Flavia – this Abalone Shell is a great way to let your inner beauty shines through as it is so simple but so pretty too!  Its teardrop shape and mix of colours which shimmer in the sunlight makes it a unique addition to your jewellery box and as my much-loved everyday necklace just met with an unfortunate accident and is awaiting repair this gorgeous Paua Pendent is perfectly timed and will be worn a lot over the coming weeks!

Bonus Treats

Guylian Belgian Milk, Dark and Praline Chocolate Seahorses

Little Bit Lavish 'Mermaid Wishes' Launch Box Review - September 2016

As a tasty little bonus treat this month your Little Bit Lavish Box also includes a selection of Guylian Chocolate Seahorses to enjoy while you are busy pampering yourself and this tasty little treat has made me one very happy beauty addict!  I am a total chocoholic and Guylian has to be one of the richest and most decadent high-street chocolate brands so I will definitely be enjoying these delicious chocolatey treats which – just like everything else in this box – are perfectly picked to match the Mermaid Wishes theme!

My Verdict

I have been so excited about the launch of the Little Bit Lavish Box and the teasers and Blogger preview boxes just added to my excitement and I wasn’t disappointed!  September’s Mermaid Wishes Launch Box was jam-packed with natural and organic beauty treats to help keep your skin smooth, you hair glossy and they have even added a little bit of Mermaid bling to help brighten your day too!  The products that Little Bit Lavish have chosen work perfectly with their Mermaid Wishes theme and their selection of sea salt and seaweed skin care and a Mermaid shaped Bath Bomb to help you relax and unwind after a busy day at the beach (being a Mermaid……..) to keep your skin silky, smooth and touchably soft, along with a super-charged Organic Surge Hair Mask to keep your Mermaid hair in top shape and full of life at all times!  This box features a whopping four full sized beauty treats which is pretty impressive on its own, but add in a beautiful shell necklace and all you need is a clam bra and you could officially be a real life Little Mermaid!  This box offers great value for money with almost £50.00 worth of products being included this month, and with big name brands like Organic Surge featuring along side boutique brands like The Cornish Seaweed Bath Company and cottage companies like Gifts by Little Miss, Little Bit Lavish have managed to include all sector of the beauty industry without compromising quality in any way!  I always like to support small UK businesses so its great to see Little Bit Lavish are doing the same and not showering us with well-known products that we may have already explored in other beauty boxes or already make up our regular beauty routine.  I adore the theme – who doesn’t love anything that involves Mermaids? – and I love the way this is reflected in every single product inside the box.  If their Blogger Preview Box (check out Jinksy Beauty and her fabulous review for more details on this box) and this amazing Launch Box are anything to go by I can see the Little Bit Lavish Box going from strength to strength and becoming one of the best-selling Beauty Boxes in the UK very quickly!  Their mix of mainstream and boho brands has worked perfectly and their natural, eco-friendly approach to beauty is an example that I hope other boxes will begin to follow as they really have ticked all the boxes on my ‘must-have’ list and I cant wait to see what their October Box has to offer!

My Beauty Favourite

After a long hot Summer my hair has been ravaged by the heat and humidity so my September Beauty Favourite has to be the Organic Surge Two Minute Moisture Hair Mask as it was perfectly timed to help heal my horrible frizz and put some life back into my lack-lustre locks!  I love that this mask is a two minute treatment which makes it easy to use and doesn’t take up too much time in the shower, but still gives you an amazing nourishing result, with healthy, hydrated hair that is shiny, manageable and easy to style!
