Over the past couple of years I've tried many a beauty box. From Birchbox to the Look Fantastic and Look Incredible beauty boxes, there have been some major triumphs and more than a few disappointments. It now takes something pretty special to pique my interest when it comes to beauty boxes, which is exactly what happened when I stumbled across Love Me Beauty.
When I did a little more research into Love Me Beauty, I soon discovered that there was an element of choice, something sorely missing from other beauty boxes and with that, my first Love Me Beauty box or edit, as I will soon explain, was winging it's way to me.
What really intrigued me was the whole notion of picking and choosing what you wanted and didn't want in each month's box. I think anyone who's ever received a monthly beauty box will agree with me that there was at least one item, or several, that you didn't get around to using or that there's a shade or type of product that doesn't work for you. Being able to pick and choose is such a game changer in my opinion!
How it works is that you get 60 credits each month to make up your edit. You can choose from a range of haircare, makeup, skincare, bodycare and nails, And your chosen items will arrive in a fun makeup bag, as it has with this month's, or something that ties in with that specific edit's theme. And in addition to that, you can top up your credits, for a few more pounds, to add even more to your monthly edit, if you so wish.
I was blown away with the products that I could choose from for this month's edit and as I'm going to New York later in the year, it was great to stock up on some travel sized items for me to use when away.
I've been wanting to try the Omorovicza cleanser for months now, after seeing basically every YouTuber that I watch rave about it. The same can be said for the Perricone MD Blue Plasma Cleansing Treatment. I was also so happy to see Caudalie's Vine[activ] skincare products feature this month as both the eye cream and moisturiser are designed specifically to be used in urban areas such as big cities (hello NYC!) due to it's anti-pollution technology. And again, the same can be said for the Ultrasun Glimmer, which will certainly come in handy when I'm away in the Summer.
It's always great to try out a new face mask so I can't wait to put this one from Korebeauty to the test! And I'm already a big fan of Ellis Faas, not just because it shares my name. This is a nice way to try out the brand without shelling out over £20 a shade. I also felt a bit like a makeup artist when dispensing each of these out to use, which was pretty fun.
If the idea of Love Me Beauty's monthly edits sound like something you'd also like to try out too, I have an exclusive discount code for you to use to take 20% off your first edit. Just enter the code ellis20 when signing up and you'll get your first one for just £8 (+ £3.95 delivery)!
Do you like the idea of having a choice when it comes to what you receive each month? What do you think of this particular edit? And have you tried any of the products in this month's edit? If so, what do you think of them?
