Weleda Millet Nourishing Shampoo (sample) RRP £8.95 190ml
Amie Skincare Clean Cooling Clay Mask RRP £1.50
So, what did I make of this months box?
I have been so chuffed with the past offerings from Love Me Beauty & BeauteCo Box that it was always going to be a tough challenge to deliver a consistent 'knock it out of the park' box each month. I feel this month is the inevitable 'it's good but doesn't wow me' offering. Obviously all of this is totally objective but only two out of the five products really caught my attention.
Before it gets mentioned, you do pick which menu you want before you receive your box so it is in no way a disappointment as I was aware of what I was receiving before it came but equally the menus didn't knock my socks off.
I'm going through a bit of a lavender stage at the moment so this dinky oil from Balm Balm was a lovely addition. The peppermint edge to this oil perfectly balances it and it's a treat to use in the bath or on a hot flannel in the shower.
I'm equally chuffed with the mini Weleda Millet Shampoo as I'm on the look out for a replacement for my current Aussie addiction. It's a light and smells lovely, a full size purchase could be on the cards!
Now, The other three products were a mixed bag. I've not had the best experience with Amie Skincare before so I'm reluctant to try the face masks but they will make lovely stocking fillers for friends or family at Christmas so all is not lost. My main gripe lies with the two Lord & Berry products contained in this months box. They are both decent little products but I'm on the verge of bored with the brand now. It's appeared once before in multiples in the boxes and it's surely time to branch out and try different brands.
I'm sure I will use them both but the curious cat in me wants to try new brands.
I'll give this months box a B+, good but a few tweaks could bring it back to it's best.
