Love Me Beauty | July 2016
This month’s Love Me Beauty* looks very exciting, doesn’t it! Love Me Beauty is the beauty box subscription where you can pick the contents yourself. Well, I say ‘box’ but, actually, the last couple of monthly editions have arrived in cute little make-up bags.
This month’s make up bag is blue, which makes a lovely change from the monochrome theme that Love Me Beauty usually goes for. With your credits this month, you can treat yourself to some of the following beauty products available on this month’s Love Me Beauty menu!
Day Cream: Caudalie Vinosource Moisturising Sorbet (luxe sample size)
I really like this light face moisturiser. I had received it in one of the recent Birchbox’s and have enjoyed using it as the hydrating, gel-like formula is light and non-greasy which is ideal for the Summer.
Night Cream: Pixi Beauty Sleep Cream (full size)
As soon as I saw their signature green packaging, I knew it was Pixi! I have heard sooo much about Pixi products but this is the first time I’m trying it. This night cream is a rich nourishing treatment featuring a lush blend of natural mango butter, lavender, lemon, and bergamot oils.
O.P.I Lucky Lucky Lavender (full size)
How pretty is this lavender purple nail polish? After a bit of research, I found out that the beautiful creme lavender shade is from the OPI Hong Kong Collection from 2010. I kinda love it a little bit more now that I know this (my family originates from Hong Kong). I went through a phase of being obsessed with lilacs, and have tried many of them from the likes of Essie, Barry M, Seventeen, and Models Own. Pastel shades can be quite hit and miss, but thankfully, this pretty pastel from OPI applies smoothy and with no streaks!
Yes To Blueberries Age Refresh Cleansing Facial Wipes
Now that it's festival and camping season, face wipes become a beauty essential. And it's the only time when it's acceptable for them to be considered a beauty essential! They're affordable, convenient, and have multi-uses when you're away from home.
Yes To Blueberries facial wipes are 95% natural, and has fruity ingredients to help cleanse, smooth and remove make-up from the surface of the skin. The good news is that they are free from parabens and SLS.
There are only ten sheets in this pack, but you can buy bigger packs from £3.99.
Pixi By Petra Lengthy Fiber Mascara (full size)
I always judge a mascara by it's brush. Who doesn't?!
When I first opened this up, it seemed underwhelming and it had these little hairy fibers sticking out of it, and for a split second, I thought this mascara had been previously used. I sat there wondering whether those little 'hairs' stuck to the brush are these someone's eyelashes?
I quickly realised that this is actually my favourite kind of mascara formula, where the clever fibres add amazing length to your eyelashes! Usually it's a two part phase and the lengthening fibers are white. But this kills two birds with one stone!
ARgENTUM La Potion Infinie, 5ml sachet
This sample costs 10 credits on Love Me Beauty, and I thought it might not be something that would capture subscriber's attention. 10 credits for a small sachet of face cream? Sounds a little too much, right?
Well, not when you find out how much the full size product of this cream costs? ... £147! What's it made of!? Diamonds? I almost feeling too precious about using this sachet now! I can see myself saving this for a day when my skin is feeling REALLY haggard.
It's a rich anti-aging cream which starts working straight away. There is, apparently, a "unique but pleasant tightening" sensation on the skin as soon as you apply it to your face. I look forward to using it, then!
If you want a chance to try out a face cream that cost £147, then now's your chance!
Love Me Beauty monthly subscription costs £10 a month (plus p&p). You get up to 60 credits to choose any of the beauty products from the menu.
