If I was disappointed with last month’s Love Me Beauty box then this month I am positively angry. I therefore apologise in advance for the entirely negative tone of this blog post.
I was pretty nonplussed with last month’s Love Me Beauty selection (see my previous post) and chose to pause my subscription. I thought the April box was just a glitch and that it couldn’t get much worse, but sadly it just did. Let me explain why.
I subscribe to what is supposed to be a beauty box so why Love Me Beauty (or any other Beauty Box for that matter) seem to think I would want to see teabags (even if they are higher end TeaPigs ones) and stationary in my box as two out of the five items is beyond me! If I wanted a lifestyle or foodie box I would have subscribed to one.
The other items included in May’s box are a lip balm, samples of some other balm products, and yet another nail polish (none of which excite me in the slightest, especially as it was only last month that they included a nail product)! It leaves me wondering if Love Me Beauty are struggling to get brands on board or if the buyers have simply run out of inspiration, but either way this isn’t the beauty box I was expecting when I subbed and it’s doubtful I’ll send any more money their way unless they seriously turn a corner next month.
One of the main differences between Love Me Beauty and other beauty boxes is their Boutique, which contains three menu choices so you can hopefully select a box that is more suited to you, but in reality there is never much difference between the menus and this month there isn’t even the option of avoiding the tea or stationary. This renders the concept pretty useless.
On the website Love Me Beauty say the following:
Love Me Beauty strives to create an ultimate beauty experience for its subscribers. Your box will contain skin care products, hair care products, make-up items, fragrances and a few other surprises – all for just £10 plus P&P!
Unfortunately I don’t feel that they are living up to these claims at all this month!
So once again I’ve paused my subscription and I appeal to Love Me Beauty to please bring back the makeup and lovely skin- and bodycare products they have included in previous boxes!
