September 2013: Love Me Beauty Box

Fans of Beauteco Box fear not! It hasn't disappeared off the face of the earth, the company has re-branded and is now known as Love Me Beauty which I think is a much more suitable name. I think having 'eco' in the name gave people the impression that all products were natural/organic which they aren't. The 'eco' part was more to do with the packaging than the actual products. The name is the only thing that has changed, as usual  you get to choose from 3 menus each month. The products in all three options will be the same with one or two variations. You just need to pick the box best suited to you. This month I decided to go for menu 1* as I'd already tried the Anatomicals products in the other boxes:

Matriskin Collagen Serum, 7.5ml sample (full size 30ml, $145): I haven't had the chance to put all the products to the test yet but what I can tell you about this serum is that it sinks into the skin like a dream. I was expecting a heavy, oily texture but instead it's a light, cooling, watery consistency that instantly absorbs leaving no residue behind. It claims to both prevent and cure various signs of aging, and remove expression lines in just 30 days. Big claims with a big price tag to match.

MURAD Osmolyte Tonic, 15ml, 10 (full size): I haven't tried a lot of products from MURAD, the price/ml ratio always puts me off but I love facial sprays so this was the main product I was excited to receive. It's a duel-phase moisturising sytem designed to infuse skin with nutrients that increase cellular hydration, repair the skins barrier and soothe skin.

Nip+Fab Dry Leg Fix, 100ml, 10.25 (full size): I don't have dry skin on my legs so I've passed this on to my mum who will be able to really put it to the test. I'll report back in an empties post. It's described as a balm but feels like a lotion to me and doesn't feel heavy on the skin.

Anatomicals No Old Bags Allowed Eye-Gel, 15ml, 3.49 (full size): I don't have high hopes for this, not a lot of eye products wow me but when it comes to my eyes, I'm willing to try anything. I get a lot of puffiness along with dark circles and fine lines, and as the day goes on my eyes look/feel very tired so I'll be keeping this in the fridge to hopefully make myself look a bit more awake when the tiredness kicks in.

Essential Care Organic Lip Silk, 5.50 (full size): I adore Essential Care, it's a brilliant brand with gorgeous ingredients in every product. All the products are Soil Association Certified and suitable for vegetarians. The Organic Lip Silk contains a nourishing blend of beeswax, shea butter, coconut oil and orange essential oil. I'm more than happy to add this organic balm to my collection.

No makeup included in this months box but 4 full sized products isn't bad at all. I'll keep you all updated with how I get on with everything, either in separate reviews or empties posts.

What do you think of this months box?

    1. I've been using it for a few days now and love it already. Wish it was bigger though, think it's only available in 15ml.
