June 2014 Love Me Beauty Box

Love Me Beauty Box* (£10 + p&p)

My first cold of the year has well and truly arrived. The last week has involved lots of sleeping, coughing and sneezing so it was nice to get to open this month's Love Me Beauty Box*. As always there were three different 'menus' to choose from and as always I had completely forgotten what was in the option I chose!

I used the Montagne Jeunesse mask on the night I opened the box and it was lovely. I don't usually like fabric masks because they tend to slip off my face so I have to make sure I have time to lie down or soak in the bath while I have it on, which I don't always have. Since I had a cold and didn't really want to do much else I ran a hot bath and it was pretty much instant relaxation. I'm thinking I'll have to make time for fabric masks more often!

I haven't opened the Beauty UK eyeshadow palette or the Model Co lipgloss yet but they both look promising. The colours in the eyeshadow palette are really neutral and the greys in particular look pretty. I've tried a few Model Co lipglosses before and although they're fairly sticky, they smell like candy floss which is always a bonus!

The Urban Veda moisturiser probably isn't something I'll use because I'm not a fan of mattifying products but I'm sure I won't have a problem finding someone who will love to give it a try. Finally the NYX nail polish in the shade 'winter' is such a beautiful light pink colour with a fair amount of sparkle. I think it's one that will look pretty on its own or over the top of another colour.

Love Me Beauty does variety really well. This probably isn't my favourite box from them, but the mask came at just the right time and I'm looking forward to wearing the lipgloss when I won't contaminate it with cold germs!

What do you think of this month's box?

  1. i hope you get better soon Jennie - hopefully you'll get the summer cold out of the way now, so you can enjoy the rest of the season without any more. the nail polish looks very pretty - and those face masks are so nostalgic for me, i used to use them with my friends when we were young teens! x

  3. I feel like I've been coming down with a cold recently, but I think it's just hayfever - I hope you feel better soon!

    This box looks pretty, especially the polish and lipgloss!

  7. I got that Model Co lipgloss free in a magazine a couple of months ago, mine is a peachy shade with shimmer running through it and although I'm not a lipgloss girl, I actually really like it! Yours is a really pretty colour :) hope you feel better soon.

  10. This looks like a pretty good box, Montagne Jeunesse face masks are always a safe bet and I really like the sound of the Urban Veda moisturiser - but then I'm a definite fan of mattifying due to my excessively oily skin!! :)
