New Beauty Additions | May

Friday, May 26, 2017



This month there's been an exciting load of beauty additions including 3 monthly beauty subscriptions and a super special jam-packed box of goodies from a lovely friend from across the pond. Let's jump right in with a quick run-down of what I'm excited to try...


Latest In Beauty | from £9 p/m



This month I decided to pick a few products for my husband to try out because Lord knows I don't need any new products and he definitely could do with a few new things to try out. I chose the beautifully packaged and even more beautiful within Penhaligons Endymion Cologne which the Husband has been really enjoying these past couple of weeks. I love that its a generous 30ml bottle too and not just some standard little sample vial. I also got him Malin & Goetz Moisturiser mainly because it is blue but also because I have way too many moisturisers in my back-up drawer but didn't want to miss the chance to get this one ;) I also picked Dr Ceuticals Foot Scrub which is a little bit disappointing to be honest, a new hand cream because I can never have too many of those and the Eyelure Brow Amplifier, which is pigmented and intense and a little goes a really, really long way!


Love Me Beauty #ShineBright Edit* | £10 p/m + p&p



Love Me Beauty always has some excellent higher end brands in their edit, bringing us skincare, makeup and tools to up our beauty game. This month sees a few options from the lovely Nuxe, a brand with so many excellent products in their repertoire, including their infamous Huile Prodigiuese. I am most excited to try out the exfoliating gel which sounds like just what my skin needs right now. And how it works is simple - you can choose your membership length from either 1, 3 or 6 month memberships and every product in the edit is awarded a credit value. Each month you are awarded 60 credits to spend on any products of your choice. If you'd like 20% off your 1st month, feel free to use my code: ummbaby20 **


Look Fantastic Get The Glow Beauty Box* | from £13 p/m



If you love receiving a surprise bundle each month and a variety of products then Look Fantastic have it down. This month's selection is all about getting the glow before the summer arrives and the box contains 6 very interesting and exciting products to help you along. I'm most excited to try the body scrub and facial peel. Also, I'm so curious about the makeup remover which states you can use it for 3 months...interesting. As always the box comes with a complimentary copy of Elle and a Beauty Box magazine with a range of tips and ideas.


Finally, my lovely friend Binita (Hidden Harmony World) sent me over a whole box full of so many amazing products including her very own handmade cleansing balm and face balm which I have been loving using. She always sends me so many skincare bits to try that I most probably wouldn't get the chance to otherwise. She also included so many amazing makeup bits that I've been enjoying using these past couple of weeks. The Pixi Glow-Y Powder, which I thought was a blusher, is a beautiful rose gold highlighter but the one that surprised me the most is the Stila Magnificent Metals - Bronzed Bell which is like diamonds for your eyelids. The next time I go to a wedding, I know what I'll be reaching for!!!





What is your favourite monthly beauty subscription service? What is the best product you've discovered through a beauty box? I'd love to know...

  3. I love that you can try so many products with Beauty Boxes and I especially like that you can choose your own with Latest in Beauty! It's a pity the foot scrub disappointed you. The Nuxe mini is perfect for weekends away! xx

  6. I found out that Look Fantastic delivers worldwide and stupid me mistakenly thought it's like Latest In Beauty which ships UK only. I have cancelled my ipsy and will be trying Look Fantastic beauty box soon. Do they give more skincare or makeup or equal for both?

  15. I haven't signed up for one yet and with good reason, how do you have space for all this stuff? I am constantly getting rid of as much as possible, I do like the concept though. Great post Sal x
