We beauty lovers are genetically built (TLBG independent assessment) to seek out new discoveries, search for the BEST new products and improve on what we already have and love. Beauty boxes help to feed this desire. Add to that the delight of a new beauty box arriving at your door… the anticipation of what’s inside, the joy of unboxing, the excitement in trying new products – the beauty box is a true delight.
With LMB, the box itself is beautiful – it’s modern, cool, simple and well, pretty much everything we like in design and packaging. Silvery-grey in colour with a rose gold logo. Lovely.
Lifting the lid reveals the somewhat compulsory beauty box drawstring bag. Here, it’s natural in colour with a black tie and the same simple Love Me Beauty branding. It’s big too, so it’s bound to come in useful for storing our ever-growing collection of beauty bits, testers and travel sizes.
There’s also The Journal, a rather slick newspaper which is sure to perk up a coffee break. The edition in our box features interviews with make-up artists Val Garland and Wendy Rowe, tips on achieving Sienna Miller’s perfect wavy bob, an abundance of expert beauty advice and lots more.
Upon joining the LMB club, you create your own unique beauty profile, which allows the in-house beauticians to make tailored product recommendations every month from luxury and emerging brands. You can then choose from these recommended products, or continue on to The Boutique to select your own, meaning no risk of disappointment. As we’re newbies to LMB, we opted to have the products chosen for us. And boy did they choose well…
Neal & Wolf Smoothing Blow-Dry Balm – Gives hair a beautifully smooth finish, ridding it of tangles and frizz.
NUXE Huile Prodigieuse Or – A luxurious little bottle of shimmering body oil for face, body or hair. This French staple nourishes while imparting a soft golden lustre on the skin.
Malin + Goetz Grapefruit Face Cleanser – A gentle, fruity cleanser with a formula well-suited to all skin types, even sensitive.
Cailyn Gel Eyeshadow Pencil in Mauve – Perfect for winter, this deep berry shadow is highly pigmented and glides on effortlessly.
Lanolips Banana Balm 3-in-1 – A new favourite. A silky balm which conditions, protects, adds sheen to lips and smells like the banana sweets from our childhood.
A great selection of products right? And for £10 (+ p&p) – fabulous! All five are brands we’re familiar with but hadn’t yet tried, which makes us very happy customers indeed. We did a bit of research and it looks like we’ve got around £35-£40 worth of products here, which is pretty amazing value.
