October 2013: Love Me Beauty Box

This month from Love Me Beauty I decided to go for Menu 3* which yet again includes a good mix of products and luckily for me, I've never tried any of them before. I was really pleased to see not only one but two Lord & Berry products in this months box as after trying the lip liner and lipstick from August's box I was really impressed by the quality. I haven't had a chance to use any of the products yet so this is just going to be my first impressions.

Lord & Berry Smudge Proof Eyeliner 'Smoke', RRP: 7.50 (full size): I don't often wear liner now but when I do it's usally black. Lately though I've been going through a brown phase which is something I didn't think I would ever do but it makes liner so much more wearable during the day. 'Smoke' is a taupe-y shade, a nice one to try for anyone trying to wean themselves off black and one that I'm more than happy to add to my liner collection. I did try this on the back of my hand and it's true to it's name, it hasn't smudged all day, even through giving my cat a bath (not an easy task). No chance of it transferring on hooded lids.

Lord & Berry Scuba Mascara 'Black', RRP: 12 (full size): I may have gone to the slightly lighter side when it comes to eyeliner but with mascara, I'll never go for any colour other than black. Within my rather large mascara stash there are only a few I like and use. This one from Lord & Berry promises to thicken and lengthen whilst keeping lashes silky soft and flexible. I never really have any trouble with mascara smudging but this is waterproof so should stay put all day.

Balm Balm Indulge Bath & Shower Oil, 5ml, RRP: 6 (full size): This smells identical to one of the bath oils from Aromatherpy Associates, can't remember which one but it's spot on! This tiny bottle may only be 5ml but when it comes to bath oils, a little goes a really long way. I've never tried any products from Balm Balm but am forever reading great reviews so can't wait to give this a go.

Weleda Millet Nourishing Shampoo, 18ml sample, RRP: 8.95 for 190ml: Weleda is a brand I'm familiar with and have enjoyed the few products I've tried but have never tried any of the hair care. Millet Nourishing Shampoo contains organic macadamia nut oil and extracts of organic millet husks so even though it's designed for normal hair, I'm hoping the macadamia oil can tackle my wild mane.

Amie Skincare Bright Eyes, 125ml, RRP: 4.95 (full size): Bright Eyes is a very gentle, coconut based, oil free make up remover for eyes. It's free from parabens, sulphates and mineral oil. Is suitable for vegetarians and vegans, and promises to be suitable for sensitive skin. Another brand I've never tried before but I'll report back with how I get on.

Each month there are 3 menu's to choose from and each month I'm really pleased to see the next box as good as the last. 4 full sized products out of 5 isn't bad going at all and they're all products I'll use rather than chuck in a cupboard and forget about.

What do you think of this months box?
Let me know if you've tried any of the products before.
