How can it be time for another unwrapping of my favourite beauty box on the block? The monthly beauty box subscription that allows you to pick from three varying menus and the option to skip the month, decided to switch things up for the month of May. Instead of concentrating purely on 4-5 beauty products, the folks at LMB added in a couple products that will be particularly handy for the bloggers amongst us.

Suti - Trial pack in Cleanse Balm, Purity Balm and Fabulous Foot Balm - £6.50
First up in Menu Two are a trio of sample skincare products from organic brand, Suti. Due to their small size I didn't expect to have much of an opinion for the three, though I'm debating ordering the full sizes of Purity Balm and Fabulous Balm. My hands have been incredibly dry, especially my cuticles while my feet definitely need some TLC in time for sandal season. The Cleanse Balm is my least favourite of the three, there are much better balms on the market. For someone with dry skin this balm didn't do anything apart from leaving my skin feeling dirtier than before...second cleanser was needed.

Tea Pigs - Rooibos Creme Caramel - three teabags £0.65 each - £1.95
As one of the non-beauty items for May, Tea Pigs were included. With a different flavour in each box, this flavour was what helped me decide which Menu to go for.

GO Stationary - Tulip Garden notebooks - £5
The last non-beauty item came as another trio, a trio of floral patterned notebooks from the brand GO Stationary. These would usually retail for £5, a little overpriced for the thickness of them but they're made and designed here in the UK. Perfect for making notes for future blog ideas and links we gather out and about?

Raw Skincare- Natural Lip Balm - Ginger - £1.98
As usual LMB contained a brand I'm yet to try but have read a lot of reviews about their products last summer. The lip balms always seem to crop up in monthly favourites, with Ginger promising to taste and smell like Ginger Beer. Containing ginger this balm is warming, protecting and conditions my lips throughout the day.

Nail Girls - Nail Polish - Nude Pink - £13.50
Most LMB boxes seem to contain a nail polish these days, who can blame them when we're entering the sandal season? This months comes from Nail Girls, yet another brand introduced to me by this beauty box. I have Nude Pink, a lot brighter pink than I'd associate with the name but still one I'll have plenty of wear from.

While this months beauty box may not be the most exciting, I haven't been left disappointed and love the idea of non-beauty items being included once in a while - here's to hoping the June box is slightly more interesting though. This months contents added up to £28.93, almost triple the £10 a month (+P&P) subscription cost. Lucy xx

    1. So do I, I love seeing if the contents even per Menu varied in colours etc! Oh no, I'm sure it'll be here soon - mine came two days after most received theirs. Have a lovely rest of the week :) x

  3. I've just read someone else's blog reviewing the same thing.
    I've heard of various beauty boxes but never ventured into signing up to one.
    Would you recommend LMB??

    1. Hi Hayley, I would really recommend LMB, they have a great team behind them and you have the option to skip (and not pay) the month if you didn't like the menu's when they're released. Their boxes never disappoint, this months wasn't so shouting from the rooftops but it has some cracking products and brands worth looking into. Hope this helps, lucy xx

  4. I never know how to feel about boxes. I don't use products tested on animals so I'm not sure if there's one I can get that is completely animal testing free? This one looks like it is. What were the other flavours for the tea?
    Water Painted Dreams xo

    1. I think there is a box thats cruelty free but I can't remember the name. It's going to bug me all day now. If I remember I'll tweet over the link for you. I think for the most part they are against animal testing. The other flavours were fruit or chocolate flake xxx


I love receiving and reading comments. I always try my best to reply as quickly as I can. If you have any urgent questions feel free to email or tweet - details found to the side or top of my blog. Lucy x
