Love Me Beauty: The March Edit

The information available is accurate to the date published: 22/03/2017, as such this may no longer be a reflection of fact. Please take this into consideration when reading.


Wednesday is beauty day – I just haven’t thought of a creative enough title yet to match Sunday Book Club and Movie Mondays.

For my first post we are focusing on Love Me Beauty‘s subscription box, the March Edit, which is my first ‘box’ as a new subscriber.

For those of you who are not familiar with this service. Love Me Beauty is a subscription service that provides you with beauty products to try. You chose the service plan that suits you best: a month, 3 months, 6 months. Dependent on the service plan you chose, equals how many ‘credits’ you get. Credits allow you to chose the products that interest you from that months ‘edit’, each product is worth a set amount of credits. Next, you fill your bag with your credit allowance, although you can top up and purchase more than your subscription allowance.


Love me Beauty costs £10 a month, plus £3 delivery. There are promo codes available . [MY CODE IS: EMILY1626242]


This months edit was mostly skincare based, with 16 products to chose from. An edit I was super excited about, as a self-proclaimed skin care junkie. My subscription plan allows for me to have 60 credits to use. Let’s take a look at the options that I chose:

Caudalie Eye Cream 5ml – 20 credits & Caudalie Instant Detox Mask 15ml – 15 credits

The editor’s note claims the eye cream will:

Noticeably reducing dark circles over time, this energising eye cream is the thing we reach for to lift tired eyes on a morning.

Application guidance is too apply this product morning and evening to the eye and lip contour.

Sadly, in terms of credits, this eye cream took a large number of credits but was the smallest sample size. Although it arrived at a convenient time as my current eye serum, a No 7 , has just finished. Eye creams are my favorite skin care item despite how often they can break the bank.

The instant detox mask comes in a 15ml squeeze tube with the editor’s note claiming that

This award-winning formula is a Londoner’s saviour. Aimed at drawing out impurities caused by the city life, it treats damage caused by ageing free radicals to refine and tighten pores. Lightly scented with floral and herbal fragrances, it’s the perfect mid-week and weekend treat.’

Instructions say to apply a thing layer of this mask for 5-10 minutes, twice a week and to remove with a damp cloth.

Given that I am not familar with the brand – Caudalie – before Love Me Beauty, the editor’s comments are high praise indeed and I am excited to put them to the test.


Kore Beauty Mask – 10 credits

This is a simple sheet mask, with both visual and written instructions on the reverse side.  This mask:

has been specially formulated for skin that has begun the ageing process. It can help reduce the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines…it can help with stimulating cellular repair, boosting collagen and elastic and also can help improve skin tone.’ 

This Korean beauty mask contains ‘hydrogel’ that the Kore Beauty website states –

provides a much closer surface contact between the skin and the mask…without drying or irritating skin.’


Omorovicza Copper Peel 2x8ml – 15 credits

Despite being a self proclaimed skincare junkie I have steered clear of using face peels out of fear of aggravating my sensitive skin but once I saw this peel on Love Me Beauty designed to help improve uneven skin tone I couldn’t resist. I received a singular sample size, if you wish to purchase this it is a more pricey product that comes with multiple tubes for long term usage. The claim is that this foaming two-phase peel,

polishes and smooths complexion and visibly reduces pore size for a brighter, more even skin tone.’ 


For only £10 a month and living on a student budget, I am looking forward to reviewing these items some time in the future.

All the above items only cost me £6.95 including delivery as I used a promo code from SophDoesNails .


If you have used any of these products, comment and let me know and if you are interested to know how these products perform, keep an eye out for next Wednesday post!

In the meantime…

See you Sunday for Book Club !

Blessings,
