February 2014: Love Me Beauty Box

It's my favourite time of the month again! This month is the Love Me Beauty Valentines Day box and as always, there was a choice of 3 different menu's to choose from. I went for menu 1* which includes...

Percy & Reed No-Fuss Flawlessness Dry Conditioner, RRP: 12 (full size): Dry conditioner always makes me think 'whaaaaaaat?!' We're all familiar with dry shampoo and know it works by soaking up any oil in the hair so the concept of a dry conditioner just didn't make sense to me BUT after having a wee read, it all makes sense now. Dry conditioner can be used on freshly washed hair to add a gorgeous glossy shine to even very dry hair. It adds softness and apparently reduces breakage caused by brushing. I have a small sample of this hanging around somewhere, think it's about time I started using it.

La Claree Smooth Day Face Care, 7ml sample, RRP: 28 for 50ml: I love trying out brands I've never heard of before so was pleased to see La Claree featured in this months box. I went for the day cream option which claims to nourish the skin and optimize collagen production.

Bakewell Soap Company Multi-Purpose Pocket Balm In 'May Chang', RRP: 3.95 (full size): Another brand I hadn't heard of before and who doesn't love a multi-purpose product. This balm can be used almost anywhere - lips, hands, nails and body. It's rich in Omega 3 and 6, and packed with anti-inflammatories. I went for the May Chang option as it contains astringent citrus oils that help repair damaged skin.

Inner Me Beautify Me Vitamin Complex, RRP: 15: InnerMe's ultimate beauty supplement for skin, hair and nails. I'm on several different medications and always steer clear of things like this but I have someone whose willing to take them off my hands.

Art Deco Hydra Lip Booster '39', RRP: 11.50 (full size): The Art Deco Hydra Lip Booster  made an appearance in November's box (I recieved a different shade link) and has been brought back as this months mystery product as subscribers claimed it was their favourite product from Love Me Beauty. I wouldn't say it's my favourite product from all the boxes but it is a lovely gloss and I'm happy to have a deeper shade.

Once again there's no sachet samples or tiny perfume vials in sight. The box includes a nice mixture of products too - skin care, hair care, make up and supplements. Nothing about it screams Valentines to me but that suits me fine, the last thing a single pringle like me wants to receive is the likes of massage oil.

    1. After giving it a try, I'm not sure I'm sold. Think I would rather use a serum than spray dry conditioner all over my hair but it's still an interesting product.

  2. Looking forward to receiving mine - I think I went for the same menu as you. I wondered if the mystery product would be ARTDECO, to be fair that one is prob the best lip gloss I've ever tried xx

    1. Hopefully more affordable brands jump on the bandwagon as 12 quid is pricey for what it is.

  7. Mine arrived today and I love it! My hairdresser has started using a lot of Percy and Reed products and recommended their dry conditioner last time I went in, so I'm interested to see if it's any good x
