Love Me Beauty Box December 2013

If you haven't yet heard of Love Me Beauty, let me introduce you to this beauty box with a difference. Each month you get to choose from three menu options - so you know exactly what you're expecting; no surprises but no disappointments either! You also don't have to buy the Love Me Beauty Box on a pre-paid subscription basis and can buy it on a one-off basis whenever a menu takes your fancy. However 3, 6 and 12 month subscriptions are available.

This month it's the Christmas edition of the Love Me Beauty Box and I chose Menu One. It would have been nice to have had some festive packaging for the Christmas edition or perhaps some festive colours.

  Lord and Berry Intensity Lipstick in Glazed Pink (full size, worth £12.00)
Rich and silky, the hydrating formula is enriched with macadamia oil and waterlily extracts to keep your lips in pristine condition. Glazed Pink will look great for everyday use or with a dramatic smokey eye on a night out.

Lord and Berry Kiss Proof Lip Liner in Romantica (full size, worth £7.50)
(The accompanying menu says the shade is "Seduction", but this must be an error as the actual product is labelled "Romantica".)
Enriched with macadamia oil and waterlily extracts, the waterproof formula creates long lasting and precise lines. It is soft enough to be used as a liner and a lipstick.

Headline Colours Nail Polish in Quicksand (full size, worth £9.00)
The formula boasts a high colour pigment for a rich, intense colour and gloss, plus UV absorbers for staying power. Quicksand is a smooth, light chocolate nude.

Rodial 5 Minute Facial 10ml (sample size, worth £7.00)
This 5 minute facial is an exfoliating and decongesting mask with active ingredients to restore a youthful glow. It clarifies and absorbs impurities whilst reducing pore size to reveal smooth, bright and glowing skin.

S5 Vitality Mask 15ml (sample size, exclusive to Love Me Beauty!)
This mask contains marine enzymes derived from salmon caviar and the formula is clinically proven to reduce imperfections by 60% and pore size by 20%. 

There is also a code in this box so that if a friend wants to subscribe, I can give them a special code so that they get two extra products in their first box.

I chose Menu One because I really liked the sound of the masks - face masks seem to be my newest obsession! The products featuring in each of the three menus are the Headline Colours nail varnish and the Lord and Berry products. I haven't tried the brand Headline Colours before and you can't beat a nude shade, I don't think I have a colour quite like this in my existing collection. The Lord and Berry lipstick and lipliner are products featured in previous boxes but in different shades, so it would be nice to see some alternative makeup brands in the boxes in future. Saying that, the lipstick shade Glazed Pink is the nicest one I've seen yet - a gorgeous frosty pink.

In total this box is worth £35.50 not including the S5 Vitality Mask. According to the Love Me Beauty website each menu is worth over £50.00 this month, so the S5 mask must be worth at least £14.50. The box costs £10.00 plus £2.95, so you are getting quadruple your money's worth of products. If you've never tried Love Me Beauty before but having been itching to do so, until 10/01/2014 you can take advantage of a huge 20% discount using the code LMBBB20 at the checkout. Even more of a bargain!

What do you think of this month's box?

P.S. This post contains a PR sample. This does not affect my opinion of the product.



  1. I haven't had this beauty box, but I've heard some bad reviews because of the Lord and Berry products. Apparently this box ALWAYS features them, and they're becoming a bit boring! x

    1. They haven't been in every box but they've featured in quite a few - I think four or five. I definitely agree that using the same brands will mean the boxes won't be so exciting, I'm hoping they'll feature some different makeup brands next year. They're pretty varied with skincare, which is good xx

  2. I have just stopped my Birchbox and Glossybox and love that you can subscribe anytime and grab a lovemebeauty box if you like whats inside!

    1. I think this definitely makes this box stand out from the others xx

  3. Love the colours of the lipstick and nail polish Sasha! That's a really good discount code - will bear that in mind after all the Christmas madness is over! xx

    1. Let me know if you take advantage Jenny :-) xx
