Apologies for a bit AWOL lately. The MacBook I use to blog decided to die on me and so I've been without a way to get some posts up!
Without further ado, above are the contents on the January Love Me Beauty Box* - a selection that is very pleasing to the eye! Love Me Beauty is a monthly beauty box where you can subscribe for £10 a month and receive a selection of goodies every month. You can choose from one of three menus which is different to most beauty boxes.
I choose menu three which includes the following:
♥ NYX Cosmetics Eyeshadow in Sahara (RRP £5) - 'NYX pressed mineral eye shadows are packed with colour, easy to blend and will last for hours'
♥ Cosmetics a la Carte Divine Lash Mascara (RRP £23) - 'Divine Lash has a slim tapered flexible brush, perfect for reaching every lash from corners to bottom lashes. This mascara gives a lovely even coating of mascara upon application'
♥ Anatomicals Rose & Jasmine Body Cleanser (RRP £3) - 'You Need a Blooming Shower cleanser by Anatomicals features a soothing mix of aloe vera and witch hazel with rose and jasmine scents'
♥ Pureology Colour Stylist Silk Bodifier (RRP 15) - 'Pureology Colour Stylist Silk Bodifier infuses hair with volume, shine and softness while protecting and maximising the vibrancy of colour-treated hair.'
♥ Arran Aromatics Apothecary Wheatgerm and Vitamin E Soap (RRP £2.75) - 'Exfoliate and polish with this Wheatgerm and Vitamin E Soap. It contains natural oatmeal to give your skin a gentle wake up call and cleanse without drying out skin'
I really like all of the products in this box. I have been most excited by the Pureology product as Pureology is my new hair love. I bought their hydrating shampoo and conditioner recently and have been amazed by it (will make sure to do a full review soon!) so was really happy to see this in the box. I've used it once and it definitely gave my hair oomph- although I do find applying mousse really tricky!
The mascara is pretty good- which you'd hope for a £23 RRP. It leaves lashes long, defined and seperated which is great for daytime. I do prefer volumising mascaras but this one makes a nice change. The Arran Aromatics soap was a real treat to get in the beauty box - I don't often buy soap and forget how much I like it.
The NYX eyeshadow is nice and pigmented, although isn't as smooth to apply as other eyeshadows (like MAC) - I actually quite like to use this as a highlighter! And finally, the Anatomicals Body Cleanser which I am yet to try. I do really like Anatomicals though- I've been using their hand cream at work and everyone keeps trying it. I've even bought some for the girl who sits next to me as she loves it so much!
Overall a pretty good box from Love Me Beauty. You can subscribe for yourself here.
