Love Me Beauty: January 2015

I posted a few days ago about a new beauty box subscription that I’d found online. Love Me Beauty is a little different from your normal subscription service where you are recommended products based on a relatively in depth profile that you fill out based on your hair/skin/make up types as well as the type of products that you like to receive.


You’re allocated 6 credits which you can divide up between products (usually between 1 and 2 credits each), you can choose to look at the recommendations based on your profile or completely choose from the ’boutique’ which contains a good selection of maybe around 30 products.


Firstly the designer in me appreciates how beautifully this is packaged, much simpler in design than Glossybox or My Little Boxes, it’s a pretty shimmery grey linen textured box with rose gold lettering, everything arrives in a cream linen pouch too.

What I chose

Nailberry Nail Polishes (2 Credits each)


This was what tipped me over the edge to ordering when I discovered this box, Nailberry is the newest brand in nails that I have heard a lot about but never tried. I was especially excited to see a shade called ‘Raspberry’, as for years I have been searching for the perfect red pink, and none have been quite what I wanted. This is the perfect shade, so I’m hoping the formula lives up to what I’m hoping for!

The other shade is called ‘Groiselle’, this looks a little different to how it did online, it looked a little pinker online, but this is a true what I’d call coral colour. I still like the look of it a lot, but do have colours which are quite similar already in my collection.


Malin + Goetz Grapefruit Cleanser (1 Credit)


This is a small sample at only 29ml (I did know that before ordering), I picked because I have quite a few cleansers on the go none of which were doing a great job of actually removing my eye make up (since received one for my birthday which is an exception!). A brand I have heard from, but have heard little about, so I’m looking forward to giving this a go!


Anatomicals Shower To The People Body Cleanser (1 Credit)


A lime scented shower gel – sorry body cleanser – I picked this as my last credit as I like most anatomicals products I have tried, and whilst not expensive, they’re not that easy to get hold of.

I got this at the end of the January period, so the credits actually come to renew again this week on Friday, I’m interested to see whether last months products are still available, or whether all the products are totally refreshed each month (I notice there are a few new additions and some taken away from when I made my selection a week or so ago). I might be tempted by another one of these nail varnishes – they’re a big size and from swatches I’ve seen online I’m really impressed – there’s a pretty pastel blue which I almost also picked, but I talked myself out of picking just 3 nail polishes!

If you do want to sign up if you use 4AI3UB at checkout, you will receive an extra credit with your first box as a referral from me who will also receive a credit in return 🙂

There’s also a 50% off code which I included in my initial post about the service (check that out here), I’m unsure whether the two codes will work together but GMQ50 will give you 50% off the price of the subscription – so including P&P a monthly subscription will cost just £8.95.

What do you make of Love Me Beauty?

    Yay it finally arrived! The packaging is just gorgeous isn’t it?
    I think you’ve got a nice selection of products here and definitely gotten value for money out of the box. I have absolutely no idea where you found the referral code on your account though! I didn’t think they had one x

      I received an email from them yesterday about referrals, I did hunt around when I originally signed up for it but couldn’t find it, seems to be new! I don’t know if it’s because when I emailed them it came from my blog email address and therefore had the signature on too and have just added me onto a list or something! X

        Ahh okay, I haven’t got one 😔
        Maybe they’re trialling it? Still would be nice to have one. Or maybe they didn’t send it to me as I chose to skip this month as its a bit too close to having just got this first box… I might email them!x

    Guess which website I’ll be browsing tonight?! Looks very nice x

      It’s worth a look, when you sign up you’re not committed to buy either but you can see all the products and recommendations!
