I am a sucker for anything that comes in a pretty box. Whether it’s a beautiful parcel from Net a Porter, or my weekly supply of snacks from Graze, I love them all! For Christmas this year I was gifted a membership to Love Me Beauty, a online boutique that recommends beauty products for your personality and needs. I was immediately intrigued…You may now be thinking: “Is it the same as Birchbox?” Well, not quite. Birchbox is a subscription service that sends you your beauty fix on a monthly basis. LMB gives you a certain amount of credit in points, which you can redeem against the many products they have in store.
Depending on the type of product, you might be spending 10 credits or 20 credits. So basically, instead of using real money the currency LMB uses is credits. I had a good look around all the categories (nails, makeup, skin, hair) and ended up getting a mix of products I have been wanting to try for a while, and a few for my weekend pampering sessions.
I was particularly excited to try the NailsInc polish. I’m an Essie girl through and through, but when I saw that NailsInc Gel polishes were available I jumped at the chance. Other than that I went a bit crazy with Nuxe products. I was in need of a new face mask and face toner, and who can say no to a miniature sized hand cream?! I also made sure to add a couple items for my weekly pamper routine. I’m particularly excited to try the Himalayan bath salts!
Have you ever used Love Me Beauty? What other subscription service can you recommend?
