Beauty boxes, I haven’t reviewed one for quite some time but feel like this summer a few brands have really upped their game offering some outstanding boxes of which I’ve purchased a few. What I’ve noticed is that the previous wave of surprise sample boxes is all a bit over with now as while they are fun in the beginning over time you end up with a growing collection of things you never use. So boutique style boxes or limited edition boxes are definitely the way forward allowing you to choose or at least see the products before you purchase. Whilst still retaining the secret to the beauty box success “value” sometimes double or triple the amount you pay.
So today I’m focusing on a brand which allows you to do just that Love Me Beauty Boutique is a subscription box* (Price of the Box is £10.00 Plus £3.95 P&P) that offers a monthly ever changing selection of high end and new discovery products in their online beauty boutique.
Each month the Love Me Beauty monthly subscription is worth 6 credits, you then simply chose the items you want inside your box from a selection of products ranging from body, nails, skincare, make-up, hair and bath products with the majority of the items being either 1 or 2 credits. Below are just a few of the lovely new additions which you can expect to see inside the August beauty boutique.
ARK Soothing Mask (2 credits) Full-Size 75g RRP £26 | ARK was new discovery for me and as a beauty therapist I’m quite fussy with face mask’s but I have to say it’s definitely my favourite item within the box. It’s ingredients are spot on for a nourishing face mask it has a divine light but uplifting botanical fragrance and fabulous results. It reminds me of the brand Elemis it’s one I would definitely re-order.
Bellapierre Cosmetics Shimmer Powder (2 credits) Full-size RRP £12.99 2g | This brand of shadows pops up in quite a few beauty boxes and although I’m not entirely a fan of loose shadow. I’ve been looking for a gunmetal- esq smokey shade for when the weather gets cooler and this one was a pretty good match.
MODELCO Brush on Fibre Brow Gel (2 credits) Full-size RRP £13.00 | As I lived in Melbourne for some time I was already familiar with this Australian brand it’s quite a popular and well loved over there. I found the thickening brow gel easily competed with similar product’s I’ve tried. The quick-dry gel formula contains hair-like particles to create the appearance of fuller, thicker brows.
MODELCO 4 Shadow Sticks (2 credits) RRP £23.00 7g | I’m loving these kind of cream to shadow eyeshadows at the moment. This Quad of mixed colours lasted well throughout the day and didn’t significantly crease, I still wouldn’t swap my all time favourite Make Up For Ever aqua cream, but it really was a nice selection of shades. My favourite being purple haze – A colour I’m sure we will be seeing more of in this year’s Autumn/Winter makeup collections.
TALIKA BIOEMZYMES MASK (2 credits) 1 Full-size RRP £9.00 | A sheet mask from the French brand TALIKA composed of antioxidants, herbal extracts and hyaluronic acid to replump and soften the skin it sounds lovely. I’m looking forward to a Sunday pamper sessions to pop this on.
SHEIN Cosmetics Lipstick (2 credits) Full-size RRP £12.00 | A selection of shades from the American Company SHEIN. I like the additional concept of adding beneficial ingredients to their formula such as red algae extract, green tea extract, vitamins C and E to nourish lips and prevent premature signs of aging.
Love Me Beauty Collection Nail file 1 credit each | Love Me Beauty have also created a collection of their own branded beauty tools such as a nail files and tweezers which are available in black or white. You can choose to add any of these along side your beauty products.
So as you can see the box represents some great savings, If you’re looking for a bespoke beauty box this one may definitely be for you as with your six credits you can tailor the box to your specific beauty preferences. If you’ve run out of credits and want to include an extra product you can simply pay for the additional items at a discounted subscriber price.
