Ok so I will be the first to admit I wasn’t that excited for the arrival of my Love Me Beauty subscription box this month. I subscribed later in the month and so sadly by the time I was able to pick from the boutique the box I REALLY wanted had already gone, so a little tip for any wanna be subscribers, subscribe at the start of the month and then you’ll get first pick at the goodies!
I opted for option 2 on the menu and when it arrived and I started to individually check out the products and I can say my fears of a let down box were subsided.
The Vintage Cosmetic Company ‘Gracie’ Lashes (Full Size) RRP £6
I’ve never heard of this company before and I cannot deny how gorgeous and girly the packaging on these is! I’m not usually a fan of strip lashes and tend to opt for the individual kits usually, but the style of these look really fluttery and cute! I just need to find an excuse to wear them now!
Nip & Fab Topical Muscle Cooling Gel (Full size) RRP £9.95
I’m not going to sit here and pretend that I am some gym goddess, because I hate it, but every now and again all of us have those days where our muscles are aching all over. I spend the whole of every working day on my feet and so my legs are often tired and tight so I thought this would be perfect for those days. It looks a bit like a roller ball deodorant when you take off the lid and I tried a little bit on a patch of my leg and it has a lovely cooling effect.
Murad Pore & Line Minimizing Hydrator (Sample Size 10ml) RRP Full Size £49.50 (50ml)
This is one of the items I am most looking forward to trying out! I am a massive facial care addict at the moment, trying out every lotion and potion going in the search of perfect skin. I’ve also heard a lot about the brand Murad and so this has made me even more intrigued. The dual action, hydrating lotion claims to create plumper, firmer skin. It also claims to help reduce the appearance of pores and repair skin breakouts.
Deep Steep Moisture Stick in ‘Honeydew Spearmint’ (Full size) RRP £3.60
This smells amazing!!! My skin at the moment is as dry as anything so I love the idea of a moisture stick. It’s a bit like a pritt stick for your skin, only without the stickiness! It melts and glides gently along your skin leaving it moisturised and silky smooth.
Quintessentially English Bath Salts in ‘Summer Solstice’ (Sample size 50g) RRP £4.25 (100g)
If you didn’t already know, I love a good bath, so I’m very excited to try these out. I love the idea of the name, it makes me want to hop into a bath right away!
Blanx White Shock Toothpaste (Sample size 15ml) RRP £7.50 (50ml)
I have to admit that toothpaste may not be the first thought that springs to mind when you think of a beauty box, but who doesn’t want white teeth? If you’ve seen my twitter recently you’ll know in desperate for some pearly whites, as years of coffee and tea drinking have left my teeth less than desirable. This toothpaste can be used the same as any other daily toothpaste so it’s super easy to blend it into your everyday routine.
Box cost: £10 + £2.95 postage.
Actual Box total value: £33.84 (I always work out the actual value of boxes by dividing the RRP by the actual product values given.)
I definitely have to eat my own words for this box after my moan the other day as I’m actually really pleased with the contents of the Love Me Beauty subscription box this month. These boxes are fab value for what you get inside and I do like the idea that you get an option of what to have each month, I would just recommend subscribing at the start of the month so you get the best choice!
This is also my first post using my brand new canon 600d camera! I’m soooo in love with it and I think the change in quality of my photos speaks volumes. I hope you like the new style of my photos!
Until Next Time
