I’m not one to commit to the permanency of a monthly subscription, especially when it comes to beauty boxes. I mean, you could go several months receiving boxes that contain products you have no interest in trying, and wit that in mind, I love no-commitment one-month-only beauty boxes. I like the freedom of being able to choose when I receive a box, knowing that the contents are worth my money and suited to my needs.
Recently I’ve been dabbling in a few boxes including the QVC Tili Box, Birchbox and Glossybox and my most recent addition, Love Me Beauty. Now while I do like the element of surprise you get with a beauty box, I also like knowing exactly what I’m going to be receiving and even better choosing the products myself. That’s why Love Me Beauty is so great, as it lets you choose from a selection each month, using the pre-assigned credits (plus extras with codes etc). For £10 a month (excluding £3.95 postage), your account is topped up with 60 credits in which you can spend in the lovely little shop featured on the site.
Now this was my first month trying out this beauty box (or bag in this case) and I had the initial 60 credits – and 30 credits for my next order from a friend referral – and with this I managed to get 3 mini/sample-sized products and 1 full-sized. Not bad eh? And want those 30 extra credits for your second order, simply use my code: EMMA05448282. You can thank me later…
Now just to give you a idea of what you can get for your monthly 60 credits, this month I received:
Kat Von D Perfume Sample in Sinner – 10 credits
Kat Von D Perfume Sample in Saint – 10 credits
OPI Nail Polish (full-sized) – 25 credits
Kat Von D Studded Kiss Mini – 15 credits
The products I managed to get my hands on were definitely the best of a semi-standard bunch and while this months offerings may not have been the best, I’m hoping for big things in the next few months from Love Me Beauty. And don’t forget, get 30 free credits with your second order using my code: EMMA05448282.
