I wasn’t really expecting to be doing another Love Me Beauty unboxing this month, but after a few people used my referral code to give themselves extra credit when signing up, meant that I was able to do a ‘big shop’ on there this month.
For those who are unaware, Love Me Beauty is a credit based you receive 60 per month and you pick the products – items are anywhere between 5 & 30, with most either 10 or 20. Often items run over from one month to the next, so if you didn’t manage to catch something one month, or absolutely love something you might be able to still get your hands on it the next month. Sadly there were some items that I’d checked on the day before I ordered from Kat Von D I wanted to get this time around, but they had disappeared the day after when the new lines had been added for the month.
I was less keen on the design of this months bag, it looks like it’s been designed on an amateur level, the typography nerd inside me is cringing at the kerning and lack of consistency, but I’m most offended by the lack of commas in the sentence. I’m going to save this for when I next do a giveaway as a way to safely package and give it a bit more padding.
First Item I chose was the Ultrasun Sports Gel SPF20 (30 Credits), I did a little reading on this before ordering, and after doing a quick ‘stocktake’ of what SPFs we had in the house for our honeymoon, it revealed we had nothing that was a little lighter. This sounded good for being particularly active, which we will be, and is a once a day application. This size is on Superdrug for £14.99 – and is a handy size for carrying around as it’s not too bulky.
Next is an item I always pick up when I see it, the Nuxe Prodigeieux Shower Oil (10 Credits), this is a gorgeous and luxurious shower oil that smells divine and reminds me of luxe fragrances from the likes of Chanel & Tom Ford. Except for that’s not what arrived, they either ran out of stock or sent me the wrong thing. Unfortuately I have about 6 bottles of what arrived… and I hate it – it’s the Nuxe Prodigeux Golden Shimmering Body Oil.
You may recognise this next item from last months box, the EcoTools Eye Duo (20 credits) has been something that I’ve constantly reached for over the past month. I picked them up thinking they’d be a good space saving thing for honeymoon, as you get 2 brushes that are double ended. The brush in particular which has as a blending end and a short oval end is one of my favourite brushes and it was a no brainer for me to get a second once I spotted they were still available.
As a result of the success of the Eye duo, I picked up the huge Full Powder Brush from EcoTools as well (20 credits). I don’t have many brushes this size, and whilst I don’t actually use brushes this big that often – it’s always handy to have backups in case one ends up dirty accidentally! This is so soft and is described as being made up of 70,000 hairs.
Last two items were from a brand called Manna, who I’ve never heard of, but turns out they’re quite popular on Instagram! I picked up their Runway Ready Primer (20 Credits) – a sample size, they rave and even compare on their website against other popular primers and make this sound like the best thing ever. Full size this is $42, so high expectations as to how this will work. It’s described as Mattifying, Pore & Line Filling, Moisturising, 16 Hour Wear & Lightweight, that’s a lot of bold claims for one primer.
The second Manna item was their LipLock Stain in Rosette (20 credits) which they describe as a Poppy Pink. These look like a cross between a gloss and a liquid lipstick. I’ve been planning for ages on doing a liquid lipstick comparison post (I’m going to need about 4 days to prepare that post with how many different brands and formulas I now have!), so it’ll be another one for the pile! Like I said in my last post, sizes on Love Me Beauty can be incredibly deceiving, this did not state in the description or item title that this was a miniature, and the picture was of a full size item. I contacted them and apparently this was a miscommunication error with the suppliers, and they gave me some extra credits for my next box.
