Love Me Beauty Box | July 2014

Hello My Lovelies,

I hope you are all doing well and are having a fabulous weekend so far. My week has definitely been one to remember. Monday I started a brand new job and the 45-60 minute car journey travelling to the office and back home has been something I have had to adapt to...my body clock is everywhere at the moment but it is all totally worth it as it is a job I am really enjoying.

It is that time of the month again when I bring you the brand new Love Me Beauty box. This is my third subscription box by Love Me Beauty and I am always so impressed with everything. If you are unsure who Love Me Beauty are, they are a monthly subscription box prices 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 will receive an email to let you know that the boutique is open and that is when the fun begins. You can head straight over and choose between he beauty box menus available. Each menu will have 1 to 2 star products and 3 travel sized samples. You have the option to sign up for 1 month, 3 months, 9 months or even 12 months and you can cancel your subscription at any time or even skip a month with no charge if nothing in that months box takes your fancy.

There were three menus to choose from this month and I decided to go for menu 3. I have literally gone down the menus from my first box trying menu 1, my second box trying menu 2 and now menu 3 for my third box. This was unintentional I swear haha. Like every single month I am always so torn between the menus but i opted to try this box and I cannot wait to use the products.


Ofra Pressed Eyeshadow in Gold Rush | RRP £8.80

Ofra is a brand I haven't heard much about previously, however, after seeing thus gorgeous eyeshadow I have a hunch that they offer some lovely products. Also, when I first read Ofra it instantly made me think of Oprah! Gold Rush is a gorgeous true metallic goldy coppery shade which to me has elements of a rose gold undertone...I am obsessed with rose gold so I will love using this product. The shadows featured in this months boxes are shades from Ofra's 'Diamonds are Forever' palette collection and they all have a vibrant shimmery colour that makes your eyes sparkle like diamonds.  

So Susan Dual Brow Powder | RRP £11.95

So Susan is another brand I haven't heard much about but I guess the whole reason of subscription boxes are to try out something new. I got a brow product in last months box but I do not mind receiving another as I love filling my brows in...for me I think they really help frame my eyes. You can create perfectly defined brows with this smudge proof dual shaded compact and I love there is two shades to choose from so you can mix them together and create the perfect brow shade. What I found really interesting was the fact the formulation has Aloe Extract and Carrot Seed Oil to nourish the sensitive skin around your eyes, it sounds so nice! 

So Susan Flutter Mascara in Carbon Black | RRP £14.95

Another So Susan product to give a try and it's a fabulous little mascara. I personally love layering up my mascaras to create really full and long false lash effect lashes. This is a new mascara to the So Susan line and is formulated with hyaluronic spheres to help achieve dark and curvy lashes. According to So Susan the long brush with extra stiff bristles helps to separate lashes while enabling you to achieve voluminous, multi-dimensional lashes in just one coat. I love the outer packaging and in some lights it looks almost rose gold...you now my obsession with rose gold is rather strong haha. I was extremely excited to give this mascara a try, however, after taking photos of the product I closed the tube and it exploded everywhere and unfortunately the wand is now clogged up. It was such a shock and for £14.95 you would not expect that to happen but at least I still have the above brow powder to give a try. 

Ofra Eyeliner in Black | RRP £7.60

Another Ofra product to give a try this month and this time it is another eyeliner...I also received on in last months box. This is a water resistant pencil with a synthetic beeswax base so it will glide on smoothly and could even be smudged to create the perfect smokey eye. You could say it is a little repetitive receiving another eyeliner but for me personally i used eyeliner on a daily basis so I go through it like no bodies business haha. 

Lashem Lash Enhancing Serum (2ml Sample) | RRP £40.00

Lash enhancing serums have been something I have wanted to try for absolutely ages but have never got round to doing so. One of my favourite you tubers Shaaanxo uses them in her makeup tutorials and I have always been so intrigued because her lashes literally look incredible! This was the only sample product in this months box but I fell it is a good amount to use for a few weeks to see whether I like it or not, fingers crossed it does what it claims...I would love longer and fuller lashes! 

The Teashed Skinny Tea (20 bags) | RRP £3.50

The Teashed is another brand I haven't heard much of but I was so excited to try out some new tea...I do love my tea! I received some tea bags in my first ever Love Me Beauty box so it was nice to try out a different brand. I couldn't believe my eyes when this months box contained 20 tea bags...I personally think that is so generous, plus for £3.50 you are getting a real bargain. I have already been browsing the website for new flavours to try. I was so torn on which flavour to try but I decided on the 'Skinny Tea' as I am on a bit of a health fix at the moment and trying to stick to it. According to The Teashed. the Skinny Tea is a delicious green tea, which is renowned for boosting the metabolism. The whole leaves  used inside the silly pyramid bags, give you a rich rounded flavour and they do not have that bitter after taste like many green teas, which are made from the dust of tea leaves. 

So, this are the goodies included in this months subscription box, what do you think? The value this month was amazing value for money as the contents totalled to over £60 which is a great deal considering the subscription box is only £10. I also love how this months box consisted of five full sized products and only one sample...I mean I love try out sample products but when a box consists of purely mini samples and sachets you are not really getting value for money. The only downside is my clogged up So Susan mascara but c'est la vie! Yet again, 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 gold of one for yourself to try here.

I hope you all enjoyed looking into this months Love Me Beauty box!

  9. I have been looking into signing up to a box like this, all of the ones I have found have been a bit pricey, this is by far the cheapest I have seen and it doesn't look like it's lacking in quality, can I ask if the p+p is reasonable? Xx

    1. It is one of my favourite subscription boxes around at the moment :) I am always so impressed with the products inside every month! I couldn't seem to find a confirmed postage cost, however, I am sure it is around the £2.50ish mark. There are a few 10% discount codes floating around the blogging community every month so with a code you could get postage free essentially :) xx
