Love Me Beauty - September edition

The new Love Me Beauty box

Love Me Beauty September

NYX Nail polish

Oriflame BB Cream
Love Me Beauty has changed.  Other than a glamorous new box adorned with rose gold lettering, there's also a new way to order what's in the box.  Gone are the days of a mystery box turning up on your doorstep once a month.  Now, you simply log in to - set up your account and then you'll have 6 credits to spend.  Each of the times has a credit value, typically 1 or 2 credits - you pick the things you'd like to try, spending your credits (you can save a couple to roll over for the next month if you really want).

Then when the box is sent out, it comes in a little dust bag within the box and inside are the products you have chosen. 

I really like this idea, it's different from everyone else, and it means you won't be ordering products you're not interested in trying.  These are the products I chose for September.

Percy & Reed dry conditioner - 2 credits - sample size is worth £7 (full size £12)
I picked this because it's so different, I've never heard of a dry conditioner before.  It's something I'm putting in my hospital bag to try out.  What I'm curious to find out, is how well it'll work with dry shampoo, which is also going in the bag - we'll see - I'm excited to try it :)

Oriflame BB cream in light - 2 credits - sample size worth £5 (full size £10.95)
This has SPF 30 (very decent) in the mix.  I've tried a couple of Oriflame products before, my favourite being the triple core lipstick which I had in a blogger meetup goody bag last year.  Their aim is to create glowing skin by soothing, nourishing and healing the skin, as well as camouflaging any redness.  I'm excited to give this a try too!

Malin + Goetz grapefruit face cleanser - 1 credit - sample size worth £2.50
This is a simple foaming gel cleanser that uses natural grapefruit extract which helps to prevent breakouts and blemishes.  I'm a bit of a sucker for fruit scents, especially zesty ones like this, so I'm looking forward to giving this a whirl, maybe I'll put this in my hospital bag too!

NYX nail polish - 1 credit
Like the numpty I am, I don't have the nail polish to hand.  We're having our bathroom done at the moment, and considering my weak pregnant bladder I need to be near a working loo (TMI I know) - so I'm at my in laws house at the moment writing this post up, so I'm afraid to say, I can't tell you what shade it is - but look how pretty it is!!!!!!!  Perfect for Autumn, Halloween and the festive season :)

I really like the new way Love Me Beauty are putting together their boxes, putting you in control of what you receive and for £13.95 - which is more than previous boxes - only time will tell if that extra charge is worth it.

  1. I love the way the whole concept works, especially how you have your own little beauty advisor who picks and suggests things to you based on your preferences and profile x

  2. Is the BB Cream 30ml? If so I'm pretty sure it's full size so even better value! I chose that and it's really nice.

    I must say however, products aside (which are good) the service leaves a lot to be desired. I've read a lot of stories where people's items have gone OOS but they were only advised a week later, incorrect items being sent, items being "reduced" after people have ordered, the new boxes not being ready for September (they obviously had a handful for their PR Samples) and the increase in price for new customers to £13.95... For existing subscribers the Beauty Revolution seems to have been a bit of a let down! Hopefully it's just a blip and they will turn it around for October's box!

    1. Yep it's 30 ml (I didn't realise when I wrote this) :)

      Yeah - I think given the launch is essentially a new business, they're having some teething problems, which I've only heard about since publishing this blog post. I didn't realise the price had gone up either - I searched long and hard on the site and couldn't find any reference to the price - I'll amend the post (thanks for that) :) Perhaps the relaunch was too soon?

  3. I do like the sound of this :) it's great to choose what comes, but then again you give up the mystery of waiting to see what's in it :D
