Beauty: Let's Talk Beauty Pie!

I first heard about Beauty Pie over a year ago but didn't pay it much attention - Florence was so little and beauty products were one of the last things on my mind, but a year on and with more time to focus on my skincare I started noticing the name popping up on Instagram. I then put a message on my Instagram story asking for recommendations of products from the brand and they came flooding in - I wanted a piece of the pie!

So how does it work?

Their website explains it a lot better than I will but essentially, it's a beauty membership where you pay a monthly fee to access Beauty Pie products at their member prices. Each membership level has a corresponding monthly spending limit based on typical prices (this is what a similar product would cost in the 'outside world')- so I pay £10 a month and get a £100 spending limit. If I order one product which has a typical price of £50 then that will use half of my spending limit - even though the product may actually only be costing me £10. This is what took me a while to understand but as soon as you're on the site, their spending limit bar helps makes it super easy. Any unused spending limit will roll over to the next month and you can upgrade your spending limit if you want to order more one month.

Why are the products so cheap?

Beauty Pie was created by Marcia Kilgore who is a legend in the beauty world and who had the idea that she could buy products directly from the supplier and essentially sell them directly to the consumer at a much cheaper price by cutting out other costs such as shop space, celebrity endorsements, retailer markup etc. All of their marketing is online and they have a great social media presence.

What have I tried so far?

I received my first order in April and it was a very exciting day. Your order arrives in a gorgeous pink box and all wrapped in pink paper - it really is a delight to receive. I am a huge fan of the Beauty Pie packaging - it's simple but looks gorgeous. 

First up in the order was the Super Retinol (+Vitamin C) Night Renewal Moisturiser. I've not used a retinol before but know how great they are meant to be for anti-ageing and the prices on Beauty Pie make them so accessible and wonderful for 'beginners'. I've been using this every night and enjoy the light tingly feeling it gives. It's too early to see a difference with my skin but I'm really liking using this. The typical price for this is £75 and I got it for £11.46.

Another skincare product I bought was the Japanfusion Pure Transforming Cleanser and I absolutely adore this. It's so lovely to use and leaves my skin feeling great. You can use it to remove all make-up but I'm a stickler for my hot cloth cleanser, and so use this in the morning or in the evening if I've just been wearing SPF. You just massage it into your skin, add a little water to make it all milky and then wash away. The typical price is £25 and I paid £7.54.

Next up is the Ultralight UVA/UVB SPF 25. I've heard that it's one of the best face SPFs out there and I'm really impressed. It sinks in easily and you can't tell you're wearing it - there's no ashy look to your face, or shine. I think I will be repurchasing this again and again and wearing all through the year. I've seen that they are releasing a new SPF in factor 50 which will be great for summer months. The typical price is £35 and I paid £9.95.

I also ordered the Super Healthy Skin Sheer Tinted Oil-Free SPF20 in light. This is the product I've been least sure about as I love the finish of it and how glowy it is, but I don't like the feel of it on my skin. I'm going to keep using it but don't think I will buy it again. The typical price is £28 and I paid £6.71.

Lastly is the Superbrow Fine Precision Pencil in Blonde Girl. This is just like the Anastasia Brow Wiz and takes two seconds to apply. Will definitely be repurchasing this. The typical price is £17 and I paid £4.43.

I've had another order this month with a couple of face masks and a lip oil but I will share my thoughts on them in another post after I've had more time to try them. Overall I have been so impressed and am excited each month to place my next order!
