Love Me Beauty Box: May 2014 Edition.

I don't seem to be having much luck with Love Me Beauty at the moment; last month my box didn't arrive and this month the thing I was most looking forward to using hasn't been included. They do (very kindly!) send me the boxes each month free of charge and don't get me wrong, I love opening them and writing these posts, but I think it's important that I write as if I were a paying customer to thoroughly review the service - it's easy to love something when it's free and although I am pretty easily pleased, saying everything is perfect when it's not isn't really helpful to anyone.

With that being said, there are some really lovely things inside the box this month. I think that's what Love Me Beauty does so well, there's always a good variety and it feels like they put a lot of effort into their product selection.
May 2014 Love Me Beauty Box* (£10 + p&p)
+ Nail Girls Nail Polish in 'Nude Pink' - 10ml | £13.50 for 15ml bottles
+ Tea Pigs Chocolate Flake Tea - 3 tea envelopes | £1.30 for two envelopes
+ Suti Trial Pack includes Purity Balm, Cleanse Balm & Foot Balm | £6.50
+ Raw Skincare Hint Of Mint Lip Balm - full size | £1.98
+ GO Stationery Pocket Notebook Set - missing from my box | £5

 ***
I think there's a really nice selection in there this month. The nail polish is my least favourite thing but it's such a fun pink colour, I can definitely see me slapping this on my toes in preparation for sandals weather. Stick lip balms are my favourite for keeping in my bag and applying on the go and I've just run out of my old one so this has come along at the perfect time - and it's minty, yum!

The Suti skincare is really intriguing and although I'm not sure I'll get much use out of the foot balm, I'm very much looking forward to trying out the cleansing balm and the purity balm sounds heavenly for irritated skin. The Teapigs chocolate tea is also intriguing, I've never tried anything like it but I do love dunking a chocolate biscuit in my brew every now and again so it sounds promising!

Lastly, I'm still a little sad about the notebooks not being in my box, but I've had a little look around the GO Stationery website and spotted a few things that the stationery nerd inside me just can't resist. So I'm pleased that the box has at least introduced me to the brand because I've never heard of them before!

Are you subscribed? What do you think of the box this month?

  2. This box looks really nice, and I love the look of the balms as they sound like something I'd like. I'd be a little annoyed if something was missing, especially stationery! I'm a bit of a stationery nerd also :)

  5. Beauty boxes always look so exciting! Definitely signing up once uni is over - it'll be like receiving a surprise gift every month! It's a shame that you've had a few problems recently though.

  13. I absolutely adore Suti, their peppermint toner is amazing! Would love to try their cleansing balm.
    I've never signed up to beauty boxes as I feel they can be a bit hit and miss, but I've been considering Love Me Beauty for a couple of months now as it always looks really good. I love that they include a couple of non-beauty items too, although it's such a shame you didn't get your notebook!

  16. Wow chocolate flake tea sounds like the tastiest type in the world! Despite trying hard to enjoy peppermint and the various other fruit tea flavours I just can't and I'm quite fussy when it comes to tea in general anyway, but this might just (definitely) tempt me.

    The Suti Purity Balm also sounds like a total saviour for summer!
