|Love Me Beauty Box* - October 2013 - £10.|
This month I chose Menu 3 and although there isn't as much difference between the boxes as last month, I think they've done a really good job once again. Four of the products are consistent over each of the boxes with the Amie product being the only one that varies. Although the variety of the boxes is an element that really appeals to be about this company, I still think this is a good box because the four products that are consistent are ones I think a lot of people will either want to, or at least be happy to try.
Weleda Millet Nourishing Shampoo (18ml sample size)
Weleda is a brand that I've tried a few products from and I've loved them all, so I'm pretty excited to see how much I like their nourishing shampoo. This is for normal hair and contains macadamia nut oil, extracts of organic millet husks & sage to gently cleanse the hair and leaving it feeling nourished. It sounds lovely and the scent isn't too overpowering, so I think this might be a winner.
- Full size 190ml retails for £8.95
Lord & Berry Smudge Proof Eyeliner (Full Size)
This is the one product this month I probably won't get a lot of use from, purely because I never really wear eyeliner. I did give it a try yesterday and although it's perhaps not the smoothest of liners to apply, once the colour was on & it's left to set for 30 seconds, it didn't budge so I think they're spot on with their smudgeproof and waterproof claims!Lord & Berry Scuba Waterproof Mascara (Full Size)
The second Lord & Berry product this month is their Scuba mascara, which promises to thicken and lengthen while keeping lashes silky soft and flexible. Again, I gave this a try yesterday and I don't think this is going to replace my favourite mascara. The formula is quite dry, which I like because I always sneeze after applying mascara and if they're too wet they end up going everywhere, but I don't think it gives a lot of length or volume to my lashes. It is however a nice every day, minimal make up kind of mascara. I'll definitely use it up & it's been nice to try, but I probably wouldn't repurchase.
Balm Balm Indulge Bath & Shower Oil (Full Size)
It's starting to get colder outside and I'm using that to excuse my almost nightly bubble baths. The Indulge bath & shower oil from Balm Balm smells beautiful and will almost certainly give a super relaxing and indulgent bath when I use it. This little 5ml bottle is enough for 2 or 3 baths and I think it's a lovely way to be able to try out the brand without committing a lot of money to a product, very excited to use this & I've bookmarked the page already because I think these will make fabulous stocking fillers come Christmas (... and yes I'm thinking about that already!)!
Amie Skincare Bright Eyes Eye Make Up Remover (Full Size)
Finally we have the product that varies over the three boxes and I opted for the box with the Amie Eye Make Up Remover inside. Everything I've tried from Amie in the past has been lovely, they are a really affordable brand, with products that are gentle to the skin that work, really well! I used this for the first time yesterday to remove the eyeliner & mascara and I was really impressed, it removed everything without irritating and without me having to rub or tug away at my eyes. The other two options were the Amie Morning Dew Moisturiser worth £4.95 or 2 large sachets of the Clean Cooling Clay Mask worth £1.50 each.
Another all-round lovely box from Love Me Beauty, I think. They're one of the most consistently good beauty boxes I've seen and although the products you receive won't be a surprise each month, you make up for that in value for money with full-sized products included regularly.
