I feel like it's my birthday every month when Mr. Postie delivers my Love Me Beauty Box to my door. I always manage to find something in each box that I really like - in fact, some products featured in past boxes have become some of my all time favourites (it's thanks to this box that I was introduced to one of my favourite brands 'Arran Aromatics'). I love the concept - the fact that you have some sort of input on what you receive each month makes this box all the more exciting for me as I can pick and choose from which selection takes my fancy. Here's my thoughts on what's in this months box...
Raw Skincare | Lipbalm in 'Hint of Mint' | RRP £1.98
I've heard quite a bit about these lipbalms on blogs the past few months so I was quite chuffed to receive one in this month's box. Who doesn't love a good lip balm?! No handbag is complete without one! This one is really lovely - I find it really smooth to apply and I also don't find it to be overly waxy - it's just the sort of consistency I prefer in a balm. I thought the 'hint of mint' might be irritating on the lips but that's not the case whatsoever - it's really refreshing, leaves your lips feeling plump (without the 'bee-sting' tingly feel) and it feels nice and cooling. It's definitely one of the more moisturising lipbalms i've tried in a while.
Nail Girls | Nail Polish in 'Nude Pink' | RRP £13.50
I've never actually heard of 'Nail Girls' before - but that's why I love beauty boxes - It's great being introduced to new products and brands! At £13.50 a bottle, this one has to be on the pricier end of the scale so I'm expecting good stuff! I can never say no to a pink shade, me. I'm quite looking forward to giving this a whirl soon - I'm hoping it has good staying power. I've actually had a little look on the website and there's a lovely selection of colours on there - well worth having a look at!
GO Stationary | Pocket Notebook Set in 'Vintage Daisy' | RRP £5
I was superly-duperly excited about seeing a set of notebooks in this month's box. I am a massive list addict! I'm forever jotting stuff down and I'm always creating to-do lists so I get through notebooks like there's no tomorrow! I'm the most forgetful person you'll ever meet so things like this come in extremely handy for me. These ones are a lovely size for popping in your handbag - I can't wait to start scribbling away!
Suti | Trial Pack (Purity Balm, Cleanse Balm and Foot Balm) | RRP £6.50
I've never ever tried a cleansing balm (i know, how big is that rock I've been hiding under?!) so I was really excited to receive this little set. I really like the texture of the 'Cleanse' balm and I've used it a couple of times now - of course, it's only a trial pack so I can't really get a true feel for how it would work with my skin on the long-term but I'd definitely look into buying the full size. All 3 balms feel really nourishing and smooth to apply and I can imagine these would be great in the winter when my skin gets a little more dry in areas. I'm saving the foot balm ready for when I go on holiday this year - you can't beet a little 'at home' pedicure before you jet away, can you?!
Tea Pigs | 'Chocolate Flake Tea' | RRP £0.65 (per tea bag)
I am a massive tea belly so these samples were right up my street this month! I recently had the chance to try some of Tea Pigs' 'Festive Tea' (I'm aware it's summer now but they became my 'go-to' choice of teabag over the winter months!) - TeaPigs really know how to jazz up your average brew! This tea is absolutely divine - honestly - if you're partial to a bit of chocolate now and again (who isn't?), it's well worth treating yourself to some of these! Tea Pigs describe it as 'a hint of dark, rich chocolate - a choccie biscuit dunked in tea'. I personally like my tea quite strong so I leave the teabag in a little longer than it says (naughty...) but it really is such a lovely little treat. Very comforting if you've had a bit of a cruddy day.
Overall, another fabulous box from Love Me Beauty - I really enjoyed the little mix-up of beauty and 'lifestyle' products this month - it's always good to have a little bit of variety. The chocolate tea made for a very welcome addition for me (I've saved the last tea bag because I can't bring myself to drink it until I've stocked up on some more...) You can find out more about the boxes and what they have to offer over on their website here.
