Love Me Beauty Box | Unboxing and Review










Love Me Beauty is a rather new concept that I was introduced to by Becca Rose. It is a monthly subscription box where you can pick your items yourself! This ensures that you don't waste your money on products you don't like and aren't taking a gamble each month on whether you are going to be pleased with what you are given. Once you sign up, you have to go through a questionnaire and based on your answers, they will create a boutique of products specially catered for you which you then choose from to put in your box.  As well as this, you are not tied to a subscription! You can buy a one off box to see if you like it before you commit to one of their subscription packages.  A one off box costs £10, but you can use the discount code BB50 to get 50% off.

I was pleased with the products I picked. I have to admit, I am quite fussy which put a harsh limit on the products available in my boutique and I didn't have a great selection to choose from, but the products I did opt for have certainly been winners.

Organic Surge Deep Cleansing Face Mask // This is essentially just a clay mask.  It helps to lift out impurities and keep skin clear, as well as balancing out oils.  I have only used this once so I will report back when I have used it enough to notice results.

Organic Surge Skin Perfection Face Polish // This is quite a chunky exfloliator, but I don't find it to be massively abrasive at all.  It gently lifts away dead skin cells to reveal a glowing complexion without irritating the skin or stripping it of its natural oils.

Monu Micro Exfoliant // I find this to be a very harsh scrub. The particles are very small and finely milled but it really does get deep down into your skin and do some hardcore exfoliating! The smell is horrible in my opinion, which puts me off of using it regularly along with the fact that it leaves my skin feeling quite sore. Nevertheless, I shall persevere and see what results I can gain from this product.

Mirabella Lipstick - Fever // Mirabella is a brand which specialises in mineral makeup, which I haven't really tried before! This lipstick is a true red with pink undertones which makes it a little harder to wear because it is a lot more vibrant. The formula is quite glossy and moisturising which means it doesnt stay on for an awfully long time.  What I will say though, is that it wears off evenly to a stain which means that you don't end up with weird patches or lines on your lips, just a pink stain which looks deliberate.

Nails Inc Upper Cheyne Row // This seems to be a shade that has not yet launched with nails inc because I can't find it anywhere other than Love Me Beauty.  I will do a full review and swatches on this polish in due course, but it is a very pretty baby pink colour with a hint of lilac. The formula is very glossy and long lasting. I currently have this on my toes and I absolutely love it!

Will you be giving this box a go?
