So, as many of you probably know, subscription boxes are a huge hype in the blogging world. I, however, had never tried one, so when I was contacted by Love Me Beauty, a subscription box company, I just couldn't say no! I've always considered subscribing to one of these, but I had read so many mixed reviews and wasn't keen on spending £10 on a box full of goodies that may not even appeal to me... But that's where Love Me Beauty is different. They send you products that suit your preference! You can't go wrong... Before posting this, I had a good look through their website and I can honestly say "I AM OBSESSED". It's just so user friendly! Before signing up, it asks you a series of fun questions about your hair and skin type etc. Then you have the choice of selecting the type of product you'd be most interested in receiving: hair; makeup; nails and so on.
The prices are as follows (not including postage and packaging):
1 month- £10
3 months- £30
6 months- £60
12 months- £120
BUT WAIT! Love Me Beauty were kind enough to provide me with a 20% discount code for you all. Simply use 'rikki20' at checkout!
Firstly, I spotted this passion fruit flavoured bubble tea that can add to your drink. I was surprised that this was in the box as, usually, subscription boxes only have beauty products in them... I actually really liked this product, it tasted so nice and makes your drink that bit more flavoursome. It's such a unique and cool concept!
I then spotted this lipstick by 'Shien'. Firstly, I love the packaging! It reminds me of the MAC packaging... I'm a huge from of the cross between matte and gloss. This particular shade is a very vibrant red! I personally don't wear bright lip shades, but I love how you can build this colour up, so you can have a subtle lip or a bright lip depending on your choice.
The next product I received was this hand cream by 'Yes Nurse'. I absolutely adore this product... I use it every day and it keeps my hands so moisturised. I find that a lot of creams temporarily hydrate my hands but then they get dry again. However, I haven't found that with this product! It's quickly absorbed into your skin so you're not left with that greasy feeling.
I haven't tried a shine spray before. In fact, I don't tend to use many hair products at all. I first tried this product when my hair was super frizzy (like a lions-mane frizzy, you have no idea!) and it worked so well! It completely tamed my hair. I love the smell, it's super subtle but still really nice! If your hairs more on greasy side of the spectrum, then I'd recommend using less of it, as it is a shine spray and you don't want your hair to look even greasier... I think this would work wonders on dry hair types, or on split ends though!
I actually already own this 'Carmex' lip balm! It was all the rage in my school a few months back, so I already know what it's like... I think these lip balms are great! They're perfect for chapped lips as they make them silky smooth! They also give my lips a temporary plumping effect, so this is perfect to use before applying a lipstick, to ensure you have a good base to work with!
Personally, I only wear Black eyeliner. but I received this one in bronze. I swatched it on my hand and really liked it... The consistency was really creamy and the colour is super pigmented. So, although I wouldn't wear this on a daily basis, I would probably make use of it on special occasions... If you're more daring with your eyeliners, then this is a great product for you!
I was in M&S the other day when I saw this exact product retail for £28! So, when I noticed it was in this box of goodies, I was so happy! I couldn't believe you were getting this, and everything else for the price of £10! I love my oils... coconut oil, tea tree oil, olive oil- all of them! I really loved the idea of this one as it's multi-purpose, so you can use it for your skin, body and hair. It was a really nourishing product and looks really expensive and high end!
Finally, I got an eye shadow! This is in a metallic shade and is quite a dark. It's a loose powder and again, really pigmented. I really love this colour, especially for a night occasion! It looks really dramatic if you apply too much, so I'd advise applying it a bit at a time.
And that's everything guys! If you're interested in trying this out then don't forget to use 'rikki20' to get 20% off!! The fact that all of these products come to £10, just blows my mind! Thank you for reading, see you soon!
