Now I’m sure everyone hates it when bloggers apologise for taking a break or not posting accidentally etc, however I am going to start this post with an apology to you as well as me. All through my exams there were posts on my usual days (Wednesdays and Saturdays, 7am) but as soon as they finished I crashed and had no energy or motivation. The week after, I got back into the swing of things, I took photos for many posts went to write them up when my laptop died. I mean a serious death, it frazzled the graphics card because of its tendency to overheat. So that was ever so slightly (read very) annoying for me. Almost straight away I did my research and found another, not too expensive, laptop to purchase. It was ordered on the day of the other ones demise but a debacle with Tesco cancelling the order led to more days away from blogging. I am now back with a laptop, one with it’s sole purpose being a blogging laptop really so we should be okay. So now my not so brief life/laptop update is finished you’d probably like to hear about June’s LoveMeBeauty!
Now first off I love the fact that LoveMeBeauty now send their monthly goodies in these cute makeup bags, it’s such a breath of fresh air from the boring old boxes. Now I’m not saying I hate the boxes, (they’re great for makeup storage/division,) but I have so many now. Also if you get one of these every month you could use them for DIY gifts perhaps?
One of my favourite things about LoveMeBeauty is that you choose exactly what you want from what is available by using credits. Signing up for a monthly subscription is £10 plus P&P and you get 60 credits which can get you 3/4 goodies of a month and if that’s not enough you can either A. use my code and get 30 more: BETH7867, or B. buy some add on credits. If you buy a 3, 6 or 12 month subscription you get an extra 30, 60 or 120 credit bonus, but obviously for a trial I would probably try the one month.
This months boutique selection didn’t completely ‘wow’ me until I saw the Tangle Teezer, now this was a massive 30 credits which I was willing to spend because I love my orange one so so much, my hair is such a struggle. As I am loving my NUXE moisturising mask I thought I would give this a go it’s the NUXE Gentle Exfoliating Gel. Then I thought why not get some makeup, I went for the most neutral colour, (the others were a bright orange and pink.) I’ve tried the Cailyn Extreme Matte Tint in 09 once so far, it’s quite a nice shade but does feel a little drying at times, I’ll try it again with a more hydrating lip balm soon.
So there are this months picks! Have you tried LoveMeBeauty yet? If not I really think you should, particularly as there are some PIXI goodies in the boutique!
Pssst! Don’t forget:
For 30 free credits to spend! Worth £21!
