Now I know we’re in August and this is a beauty box from July but I decided I would share this box now because there was simply no space in my schedule in July – which is pretty crazy for someone who usually has no posts planned at all. But anyway here is my July LoveMeBeauty box.
Before I get into the details of what I chose I just have to say that there are more products here than your monthly 60 credits will get you. This is because almost as soon as I ordered July’s box I saw an amazing groupon deal which halved the price of a 6 month subscription. So for £29 I could have 6 boxes, then on top of that there was a £10 off your first purchase which took it down to £19 (+p&p.) In total the subscription cost me around £31 once p&p had been taken into account which is a lot better than £13 something a month. So to put it simply I got two boxes this month… oopsy!
Now the odd ones out this month are these two. First was the Caudalie Glycolic Peel, 15 credits. I was tempted by the pink grape moisturiser but this had a low amount of product in so thought why not try the peel instead. It doesn’t have a prominent smell, though it is gently fragranced so it should be okay for sensitive skin. Then for only 10 credits I chose the Yes to Blueberries Age Refresh Wipes. I know everyone says wipes are bad for your face but when you’re tired or travelling they’re just the easier option. There are only 10 so I won’t be converting to face wipes completely but they are a nice option to have.
Onto the Pixi goodies. These are both full size products and were 25 credits each, meaning with a 60 credit limit you could only choose 2, unless you were me… The Pixi Nourishing Lip Polish is frankly weird to me. Its applicator has rubbery spikes which allow you to scrub your lips while applying. Then the product itself has a strange scent and taste, almost apricot like but in a strange way. The Pixi Beauty Sleep Cream on the other hand I am loving. I have been looking for a night cream for ages and just hadn’t found one that I enjoy using until now. This smells of lavender and while it is very rich it isn’t heavy and absorbs into the skin easily.
The last three bits were also all Pixi, the LoveMeBeauty Wanderlust edit was full of it and I had to take advantage. I got the Pixi Correction Concentrate in my second box as I wasn’t sure it would work for me because I am pale. The shade is brightening peach and as far as I am aware it is the only shade they do at the moment. Make no mistake, it is an eye brightener not a concealer. It is quite a heavy product but does blend out easily though I don’t know if it suits my skin or not as I am rather pale. Now the Pixi Glow Tonic is the cult favourite and I thought it would be rude not to try a small bottle. It only contains 15ml but I don’t see why it wouldn’t last me a while, it seems very interesting and I will report back. Finally is the Pixi Lengthy Fiber Mascara which I’m not too sure about. I tried this and it did surprise me. When it mentioned fiber I thought it would mean small almost invisible fibers like in some brow gels but I was very wrong. On opening the tube I discovered that the fibers were in fact eyelash length, it looks like spiders legs in a tube if I’m honest, but that didn’t stop me trying it anyway. The first try of this wasn’t exactly amazing, it worked like a normal mascara and I didn’t see any particular difference from the fibers, but I will try it again and see if I can get it to work better next time!
LoveMeBeauty is £10 +p&p which isn’t the most expensive box out there at all. The fact you get to choose your own products and the chance to add on more credits if you see more products you want is a great idea!
