I previously reviewed the first Little Piece of Cornwall subscription box and I was recently sent the second Little Piece of Cornwall box for review, here’s what was inside! *I was sent the item free of charge in return for this review*
Just like the first box, the second box is a high quality white box with gold writing on the front. I really do like the look of the boxes and that they try to minimise non recyclable or reusable packaging in the boxes by packing them full of shredded paper instead of bubble wrap or similar.
There were five items in the second subscription box, all of which are from Cornish brands, a couple of which I hadn’t heard of before.
The chocolates in the box were Cherry Bakewell Fudge flavoured ones from Langleys. They’ve somehow managed to make the chocolate melt in the mouth, but also crunchy and gooey too. Plus they really do taste like cherry bakewell tarts and they’re very pretty.
There’s a wonderful smelling Beach Breeze soy candle in the second box from Karen Davey Contemporary Home Furnishings. I’ve previously worked with Karen on a candle review, so I know just how great her full sized candles are too.
Made For Life Organics is a new brand to me, so the 10ml Made For Life softening body oil was a great tester product. That’s the great thing about the Little Piece of Cornwall subscription boxes, you get to try new products and as an added bonus if you like the products and want to buy more or the full sized version, there are discount codes included in the box for each brand.
The pure seaweed soap from The Cornish Seaweed Bath Company is one of my favourite items in this box. It’s made from 100% natural ingredients and has a really strong warm lemon smell to it that I would actually love to have as a scented candle.
The last item in the box is lotion from St. Kitts Herbery which is Rosemary and Bergamot, which is for use on the hands or the body. It smells a lot like expensive high quality lotions that I’ve had used on me at spa treatments before – it may even have been the same product and it feels great on my skin.
This month’s box was a bit of a mix contents wise, though it was all about relaxing and unwinding. The hint for next month’s box is that it will be Cörnishbord themed – I have no idea what that actually means ha! Intriguing though. Each month along with the subscription box, but you will also be sent separately a copy of Cornwall Living magazine.
With the discount codes included in the box, the magazine and five products the boxes seem very reasonably priced, as they start from just £9.99 when you subscribe for 12 months. Plus if you use the code ACORNISHMUM2019 you can receive a discount of £10 off a 6 or 12 month subscription!
You can find out more about the boxes on the Little Piece of Cornwall site.
