Love Me Beauty Box Review


Despite beauty boxes being a huge trend over the past couple of years, I've never actually got one for myself - so when Love Me Beauty got in touch, of course I had to try one out! I don't know much about what other 'box' companies offer, but I've not heard of a personalised experience before, which is what Love Me Beauty offer; you answer a series of questions about your skin type and personality, and they'll tailor the box to your preferences.  After this, you can either leave it up to the experts to choose for you, or you can pick exactly what you want - perfect if you're fussy like me!

Shien Lipstick
I was very chuffed to receive two lipsticks from Shien; Red Lantern, a bold red, and Shanghai Rose, a dusky pink nude.  I wore the latter in my make-up look and it has a lovely creamy texture, great for every day wear, or with a smoked up eye look, like I did.  Shien products are infused with all sorts of vitamins to nourish your lips, are free of parabens and are against animal testing, so I'm definitely a fan! RRP £11.50

Nails Inc Gel Nail Polish
This was the item I was probably the most excited about in the box, as I absolutely adore the colour - 'Corville Mews' is the perfect light nude (plus isn't the packaging gorge?). I'd have put it on straight away, but I have acrylic nails with a glitter polish at the moment which is a nightmare to remove, so I'll leave it to the salon!  RRP £15

BelláPierre Eyeshadow
I created a gorgeous smoky eye with these; I used the warm golden colour, Lava, all over the lid and smoked it out with Diligence, a darker brown/purple shade.  As it's loose powder you get excellent colour payoff, but I'd advise using it before applying foundation, so as to avoid drop-down.  The shadows are made entirely of mineral powders and are hypoallergenic, so perfect for sensitive eyes!  RRP £12.99

Neal & Wolf Hair Protection Spray
This arrived at the perfect time, as I've recently run out of hair protection spray!  I try to stay away from heat-styling products, but I just love my hair with a curl to it!  This contains ingredients to lock in moisture, for a healthy finish, and protects hair against heat up to 220°C.  This misted easily over the hair and wasn't sticky or heavy, plus is smells gorge!  RRP £11.50

Nuxe Prodigieuse Oil
Festivals really dry out my skin and hair, so this little bottle of nourishment will be perfect to take along with me.  It's so convenient that it's multi-purpose, and I've heard oil works miracles on oily skin - guess I'll have to find out!  RRP £6.99

Nuxe Creme Fraiche Hydrating Mask
As mentioned above, my skin really suffers from festivals, so this is a great post-festival pick-me-up.  It's super soothing on the skin and reduces any irritation or redness instantly - the formula is non-oily so you can apply make-up straight after.  I only have masks to invigorate and draw out impurities, so I'm happy to add a gentler one to my collection!  RRP £18.50

Altogether, this box was worth a total of over £100, but the Love Me Beauty boxes are just £10 per month, so it's an incredible saving, and you get to try out up-and-coming brands for a snip of the price!  Would you try Love Me Beauty?

  1. I love the concept of Love Me Beauty but after it taking them 12 days to ship my box, and their customer services lying to me, I will never order again!

  2. It's a shame non of them are well known brands but I love trying something new! Awesome prices too.

  8. i have to say you haven't stated how many credits you were I have the subscription myself but only 60 credits per month only allows me between 3-5 items depending on how i spend and choose my credits...your review looks like you received a lot of items, I was wondering how many credits this used up and the cost of it?
