It is SUNNY and it is Friday!!! I got the box early enough to get some sunny pics. Unbox time!!! 😀Stunner stunner stunner!!! I LOVE this month’s box for another box to blow my socks off!!! This month’s lifestyle items are:

  • vocabulary list French local vegetable by season list
  • Note pad -> useful, but I’m not excited
  • Foulard
  • Water bottle with a filter



Cotton foulard (50cmx50cm), 3 tone parley water print, slight waxy feeling -> fabric feels 40×40, I haven’t done the actual thread count
MLB calls it fruit shade bottle (+/-500ml)

Winner winner winner!!! My favourite thing is BACK!! Yup, I am a suckerfor these sash bags. Love this peachy toned print!!my-little-box-april-2017-france-mylittlegardenbox-avril-4763.JPG

And DAMN! I am snapped. MLB nailed it again with the beauty products again this month! Who would have thought they they can top the Sephora x MLB collab like last month’s?

  • My Little Beauty vitamin shot (facial scrub) 75ml, made in France
  • Klorane dry Shampoo with oat milk 50ml, made in France
  • Yves Rocher botanical color jumbo in #10 noisetier nacre (hazelnut), made in France
  • Caudalie 3-in-1 Vine[activ]moisturizer 15ml, made in France

my-little-box-april-2017-france-mylittlegardenbox-avril-4765.JPGI love this local French brand arsenal of a selection! Well done, MLB!!!


The scrub is promising. The packaging states that it is made with bamboo extract, apricot seed powder and argan oil. It smells artificially fruity in a pleasant way. It has both salicylic acid and citric acid; I like it! I am in the market to buy a new scrub, I guess now I won’t need to. Can’t wait to try it out. *Down point, it has SLS. I’ll use this twice a week, I’m pretty sure that my skin won’t act up.


Yves Rocher 2-in-1 jumbo eye pencil. Never tried anything from this brand. will be happy to try this hazelnut metallic number.


Caudalie 3-in-1 moisturizer. Okay, the smell is so natural smelling that it is off putting. I don’t know if I want to use this. It is a fab 7 days travel size though.


Klorane dry shampoo is another winner. I just finished my L’oreal extraordinary clay dry shampoo. Again, this one just arrived at the right time. I’ve known Klorane for a long time, but have yet to try their goodies. Now is the time? 😉

O, and this box is definitely hitting some patriotic note? A reminder to vote *LOL* Must say, the French election is turning into show biz lately.


So that’s it, folks! Full of wins for me this month!my-little-box-april-2017-france-mylittlegardenbox-avril-4766.JPG

My Little Box France April 201704.jpg


Salut, I am Joyce. 40 something living in Paris. Appreciate little things and share giggles. Prudent, no nonsense reviews. #ExploreLaughRepeat


  1. Wow, you’ve got an amazing items. I truly enjoy reading your unboxing series cause I always find it entertaining, though this is kind of a girly thing, I still enjoy it. Thank you so much for sharing Joyce.
    Best regards, Lai ????

  2. I can finally comment on your post now I’m on a desktop, it never appeared on my iPad or iPhone WP readers 🙁
    I hope my box is going to be the same as yours, I love the look of everything you got this month, and four beauty items instead of three? Even better!
    How haven’t you tried Yves Rocher? I’ve had that brand probably six times through MLB! Fingers crossed mine arrives today – I want to see what’s in mine!

    • Wahhaha actually, I’m in the middle of moving my site to bluehost. It maybe me as well.

      I think the only that I own was from the mylittlecoconut box? That was a fragrance though.

      Fingers and toes crossed for you ????

  3. What do you use those sash bags for? Shoes?
    How have you not tried Yves Rocher?! Their makeup is surprisingly good. I hope you’ll like the jumbo eye pencil (which I have not tried).

    • They’re too small for my shoes 🙁 I use them to organise my samples sash and sheet masks *LOL* or to store small things like my camera cleansing kit

      I don’t know why I haven’t tried them *LOL* wahahah will let you know if it’s any good. Will need warmer weather to test it properly
