Hello My Lovelies,
I hope you are all doing well and are having a great week so far. Even before starting my blog back in 2012 i had always been so intrigued by subscription boxes. Even though i personally never subscribed to any, which i still find incredibly weird because i really wanted to give them a try, I have always loved their concept and the idea behind them. I was recently contacted by the lovely team at Love Me Beauty Box who informed me about their new May 2014 box and if i would love to give it a try. Given my love for subscription boxes, i literally jumped at the chance…I would finally be able to give a subscription box a try, yay!
If you are unsure who Love Me Beauty are, they are a monthly subscription box priced at only £10 per box and every month they contain five products from various beauty and lifestyle brands which can be seen on their website here. Each month, you'll receive an email to let you know that the boutique is open and that is when the fun begins. You can head straight there and choose between the beauty box menus available. Each menu will have 1 to 2 star products and 3 travel sized samples. You can sign up for one month, 3 months, 9 months or 12 months and can cancel your subscription at any time. You even have the option to skip a month with no charge if nothing in that months box takes your fancy. Pretty cool right?!
I believe there were three menus to choose from this month and i decided to go for menu 1 which can be seen from the leaflet enclosed within the box below. This being my first month trying out the box i was excited to see what the products would be like. I love how there is a mixture of beauty, stationary and food products in this box so there would be something everyone would enjoy.
Go Stationary Pocket Notebook Set in Vintage Daisy | RRP £5
When opening the box these little beauties were the first thing that caught my eye. I am a sucker when it comes to cute stationary and i am constantly making lists throughout my day to day life. These cute pocket notebooks will come in super handy for University, wish lists and of course blogging ideas. This print caught my eye in menu 1 as it instantly reminded me of something i would purchase in Cath Kindston - even though the designed were gorgeous in each box!
Nail Girls Nail Polish in Nude Pink | RRP £13.50
I have personally never tried this brand before but at first glance the product looks of great quality and i think the light pink shade is beautiful, i am a sucker for anything pastel. I am very sure i will be rocking this shade during the summer months, perhaps even with a glittery top coat! Considering this nail polish alone costs £13.50 (most expensive product in the box) you are getting a huge bargain for a £10 beauty box!
Raw Skincare Natural Lip Balm in Hint of Mint | RRP £1.98
A product i was rather excited to try this month was this Hint of Mint lip balm by Raw Skincare. I have seen a mixture of bloggers and youtubers use this brand and rave about it so i am intrigued to give it a try myself. I know Shaaanxo swears by these lip balms over on her Youtube channel so my excitement about this product is her doing haha! I have used it a couple of times so far and even without tacking the lid off you can smell the fresh scent of mint…so far i think its great and for £1.98 a complete bargain if you ever wanted to re-purchase it.
Tea Pigs Tea in Chocolate Flake Tea - 3 packs | RRP 65p Per Tea Bag
I must say i was completely torn between two boxes when it came down tot he Tea Pigs Tea. Even though that was the case i opted for the Chocolate Flake version as i was more partical to the ingredients used. I was lucky enough to be sent some Tea Pigs Tea back in December to try and i absolutely loved it, so i think these will be a hit also. This tea is described as a 'Choccie Biscuit Dunked in Tea' - how perfect does that sound?!
Suti Trial Pack in Cleanse Balm, Purity Balm and Fabulous Foot Balm | RRP £6.50
This is another brand i haven't heard much about but never the less i am intrigued to give it a try and i love the idea of a little trial pack. The pack contains three different products, a cleansing balm, purity balm and a foot balm. I haven't tried many balms before but i love the idea of the cleanse and purity balms as a double cleanse in my skincare routine. I am looking forward to giving them a proper try soon as my skincare routine is every where at the moment!
Those are the goodies included in this months box, what do you think? I have to say i do really love the concept of the box and the way it arrived to me all packaged and colourful was really lovely. For £10 i think you can't go wrong for a box full of goodies to try, you might just find your next holy grail product! I already can't wait for next months box to be released! If you like the look of this months box you can still get hold of one for yourself to try here.
Like always lovelies, if you have any questions, requests or if you just want a chat you can contact me on my social media or leave me a comment below. I love hearing from you all and i make sure to read every single comment…they really make my day!
Lots of Love
