Love Me Beauty – April 2016

This year is whizzing by I can’t believe its now April! However the arrival of another month means an exciting delivery from Love Me Beauty! Last month Love Me Beauty announced they are now stocking the fabulous skincare Brand Rodial.

This month they have also added another exciting brand to the boutique, Make Up For Ever! I’m so excited to finally get to try some products, Make up forever has only been available in a handful of stores here in the UK until now. If your not familiar with  Make Up For Ever they are a Parisian cosmetic line created by makeup artist Dany Sanz, a favourite of makeup artists, with the popular HD range & Aqua waterproof products. So to find this brand in a beauty box is really exciting.

Not only this but Love Me Beauty are getting rid of the traditional box and you will now receive your goodies in a limited edition make up bag, which will be updated monthly. Perfect for storing all your new bits and bobs in.

Without further ado lets take a peek at what goodies I received, this month.

Tangle Teezer – Blow- styling Full paddle brush

Having revolutionised how we detangle our hair, TANGLE TEEZER have now created another ground-breaking hairbrush – this time designed to make the job of creating salon blow-dry results at home, much quicker and easier.
The secret is in the design of the teeth. Now, you don’t have to be a professional, you just need to trust in the brush.
Quick-drying teeth rapidly extract surface water from the hair shaft. Unique cleaning grooves makes for easy hair removal and cleaning without damaging the teeth. The revolutionary teeth will give your hair volume, shine, less frizz and smoother hair without stretch-drying. You may also find there’s no need to use straighteners afterwards – thus saving even more time. Genius!
Being so big this was the first thing I saw as it wouldn’t fit in the make up bag. I couldn’t believe my eyes, Tangle Teezer is one of the most popular hair brush brands, so to receive the full sized paddle brush is a real treat. The brush itself is of really high quality and although big, it is easy to manoeuvre. I cant wait to see if this helps speed up my hair drying time and reduces frizz. I will be trying this out when I wash my hair tonight.

Make Up For Ever – HD Microfinish Powder.
Love Me Beauty - Beauty Box - April 2016 - Skincare - Make up - Beauty - Make up sponge - Tangle Teezer Blowdry paddle brush - Haircare - Make Up For Ever - HD powder - Excessive lash - Melvita - Floral water - Percy & Reed - Dry conditioner
The industry’s must-have powder. 100% mineral finishing powder that softens the appearance of fine lines and pores for a naturally, radiant complexion. It reduces shine and slightly mattifies without changing the skin’s natural contours, and the lightweight, silky texture adds a soft focus effect for a flawless finish. This translucent, dermatologist-tested, and talc-free formula does not dry the skin. HD Powder can be applied over foundation or worn alone. One universal shade works for all skintones.

I was over the moon to find this in my bag, I have heard such amazing things about the HD range. So to finally be able to give it a try is really exciting, especially as I have considered purchasing before. I have seen this being used in a number of ways including the current baking trend. Now I can have a play around and see if it lives up to the hype before splurging on the full size.

Love Me Beauty – Blending Sponge.
Introducing the LMB Neon Pink blending sponge. The shape of this makeup blender ensures flawless, streak-free application of primers, foundations, concealers and blushes. Designed to be used damp, this sponge injects an extra moisture boost into your makeup routine, perfect for those with dry skin. Experience your most flawless makeup yet.

I love applying my base with a sponge it really helps create a seamless look, it helps cover any dry patches with out highlighting them. So I’m always glad to add another sponge to my collection. I haven’t tried the original beauty blender yet this looks an amazing dupe so fingers crossed this is just as good.
Melvita – Orange Blossom Floral water.
Orange blossom floral water is obtained by distillation of organically grown, fresh Citrus aurantium amara leaves. Naturally rich in active ingredients, it has calming, softening and refreshing properties, and is suitable for all skin types. Soak into a cotton wool pad and apply to face morning and evening to tone the complexion.
Toning is such an important step in my skincare routine. I suffer with enlarged pores and found toning daily has really helped make them less noticeable. More and more people are swapping the old style toners for floral waters. So I’m excited to see if I prefer this to a normal toner. Melvita isn’t a brand I have heard of before however the formula leaves my skin feeling really refreshed so I will without doubt be using this up.

Melvita – Argan Oil
Melvita’s Organic Argan Oil repairs, protects and strengthens skin, hair and nails. Unroasted argan oil is a true beauty secret held by Berber women. Organic Argan Oil is also traditionally used to massage joints and to care for the nails and hair.
Another Melvita product, this little bottle of argan oil is perfect for taking with you on a weekend or night away. So I will be keeping hold of this till then, instead of lugging my big bottle of Argan Oil. I love the shine Argan Oil gives your hair and how soft my hair feels after use. So this is really handy.

Percy & Reed – Dry Conditioner
The lightweight spray softens, shines and gives hair natural movement. Refreshes and revives hair lengths and ends between washes a quick-fix shine and condition boost for dull, lifeless, lacklustre hair lengths. Suitable for all hair types, especially great on extensions and on coloured and chemically treated, natural hair. Good to help smooth and detangle hair that’s been over-loaded with styling product.

I have tried Percy & Reed before and was really impressed, so I was really happy to receive a full sized bottle of this dry conditioner. This sounds perfect for me as my hair gets lank between washes and the ends of my hair feel really dry. I cant wait to get spritzing and see if this makes a difference.

Make Up For Ever – Excessive Lash

Excessive Lash creates long lasting panoramic volume that fans out for a truly dramatic, eye-opening effect. The no-smudge formula builds this intense lash look, while the exclusive slim double-fiber brush works to load from root to tip and ensure absolutely no clumps.

Eek another Make Up For Ever product and this sounds just up my street. When it comes to mascara I always look for volumising ones. Now I have started wearing contact lenses I find my eyes water more, so the no smudge formula is perfect. I have high hopes for this mascara and am excited to give it a shot.

I’m really chuffed with what I received from Love Me Beauty, It’s the best “box” yet! You can get your own from the Love Me Beauty site here. What do you think about the goodies I got this month? Have you tried any of these bits? Do you subscribe to any beauty boxes?

Lots of Love,
