|Love Me Beauty May Review|
I managed to test out all the products from May’s Love Me Beauty subscription box. I went with Edition 1 box in May, although mine seemed different than quite a few other people that had Edition 1. I was really pleased with the selection!

Let us start with the set of 3 notebooks from GO Stationery, I got the Vintage Ditsy set. I’ve not used these as I already have a stash of unused notebooks, although I am looking forward to using them! They’re a great size and remind me of moleskin notebooks. This set retails for £5 from the website, there are other sets available too! I’m really pleased to own these and will definitely be checking out a few more when I eventually need more. Another lifestyle product is the teapigs chocolate flake tea, I had 3 teabags and I’ve managed to keep one for this post. I love this tea and will without doubt be purchasing a box of 15 for £3.99 soon! Luckily a local coffee house sells them, you can also buy them online from the teapigs website.
Now for skin care. I got this great little trial set of suti balms – not everyone got this set with their Edition 1 box. The set came with a Cleanse Balm, Purity Balm and Fabulous Foot Balm. I’m not the biggest fan of these balms, they tend to leave a greasy residue as they all contain shea butter. Not something you want from your cleansing balm. I will finish the Purity Balm as it works well for my dry elbows and the Fabulous Foot balm works well on my feet but I don’t think I’ll rush out to purchase the full sizes. You can get the trial size from the website for £6.50, it also contains two face oils and a face moisturiser, so these might be worth a look!
Another skin care type item is this wonderful natural lip balm from Raw Skincare in Hint of Mint. I really love this lip balm, it feels nourishing on my lips, probably due to the organic coconut oil and cocoa butter. I do have to reapply it after an hour or two, so I don’t think this would be an overnight lip treatment, however it is ideal for during the day. It feels much better for my lips than my chapstick anyway! This retails for £1.98 from the website and I will definitely check out more from this brand.
The final product in the box is this wonderfully beautiful nail polish from nailgirls in the shade Nude Pink. This is a great “free from” polish, so it doesn’t contain those ingredients that can often cause peeling, chipping, discolouration, drying of your nails – all that bad stuff. The colour is great and with just two coats I had a fully opaque medium pink on my nails. I’m not one for wearing soft pinks on my nails, so I’m really pleased to find this shade that I utterly love! I have bookmarked the website and found them on facebook, I will be purchasing more from this brand, I may replace my nail polishes with some of these when I feel the need to replace a colour! These nail polishes retail for £13.50 from the nailgirls website.
All in all a good box. I liked the lip balm, nail polish, notebooks and tea, I’m not keen on the suti products.
