Again, yet another month has flown by, bringing a special edition of the beauty box that allows you to select what you receive each month. Instead of knowing the five products in your Love Me Beauty menu, they've decided to spice things up for the season of 'love' with one of your five products being a mystery until you make your way through all the usual tissue.
I've tried Percy & Reed products in the past and really haven't been a fan despite how many raving reviews I see. Being a Dry Conditioner this product will provide healthy softness and shine without having to wash and blow dry, who else hates washing their hair? Excited to see how well this lived up to the expectations cheaper brands have set I've been pleasantly surprised with how glossy my hair looks, along with how much easier it's been to brush through and smells divine. I suggest everyone gives this product a try, worth every penny.
As my New Years Resolution I made the goal to moisturise every evening, with plenty of body butters snapped up in the Christmas sales. As a sufferer of dry skin and eczema flare ups's it's important I take more care. Seeing a french skincare brand was perfect, especially with Menu two consisting of the body milk. I hoped this would come packaged in a miniature tub as the image on the menu shows, instead a small plastic bottle. Nonetheless it's cute, though getting product out has been hard at times since for a body milk it's a rather thick consistency. Once applied to the skin a little goes a long way, with it instantly sinking into the skin.
As one of the cheaper products in the box and still full size, you'll probably all be surprised that this product actually made it as my favourite out of the five. This multi-purpose balm has been particularly handy for the dryness around my nose, dry lips and those pesky little bits of skin I can't seem to avoid with walking Harry multiple times a day, rain or shine. Despite containing many essential oils, my skin isn't left feeling oily nor do my lips have to put up with a sticky residue. A little of this handmade gem goes a very long way. As my first experience with Bakewell Soap Company I'll be looking into a few more of their products.
I'm not entirely sure how I feel about receiving vitamins inside a beauty box, they've appeared in other beauty boxes in the past with them getting a not so warm welcome. The capsules for a start are too large for me to even consider taking them and at £15 per two week supply, I'd rather keep to my healthy, balanced diet despite all their nutritional information.
I always get excited when I see an ArtDeco product taking pride of place on a Love Me Beauty menu. Having received a gloss in a previous box and loved it, I'm not disappointed to see another one, it's a different shade after all.
