1. Vita Liberata  – (20 credits each)
*Please note the full sized products featured in this post are for illustrative purposes only

While the sun seems to be having a vacation somewhere high up in the clouds what better way to fake that glow than with Vita Liberata’s luxe collective of sunless tanning solutions and their a brand I’ve had a really positive experience with so a very welcomed partner this month. You can expect to see four different products from their range so if you’re a pro or a beginner there’s something to suit everyone from different shades and finishes suitable for all skin-types and skin tones. 

The Vita Liberata Marula Self Tan Dry Oil SPF 50 (Sample size 10ml) is the world’s only self tan with with SPF 50 broad spectrum protection. This luxurious self tanning dry oil applies with a subtle tint for an instant colour boost and no missed spots. Gives a gradual tan for up to ten days with buildable colour so you can choose your perfect tan shade. Unique macro molecule chemical SPF won’t penetrate the skin layers while anti age extracts repair and nourish skin.

If you’re looking for something a little more fool-proof and subtle then the Vita Liberata Fabulous Gradual Self Tanning Lotion (Travel Size 50ml) will become your new beauty BFF! This gradual tanning lotion promises to develop into a subtle sunkissed glow when applied daily and is perfect for dry, sensitive and mature skin types. It enhances, hydrates, builds and prolongs any tan, giving the easiest daily glow.

Vita Liberata’s Self Tanning Night Moisture Mask (Sample Size 10ml) is infused with a touch of tan to help you build a natural glow as you sleep without staining your pillow case. The antiaging HyH20™ Technology leaves the skin hydrated, healthier looking and the Vitamin-rich sunflower seed helps to calm the skin and joins forces with tocopherol to protect from free radical damage.

The Vita Liberata Phenomenal 2-3 Week Tan Mousse (Sample size 25ml) is a super fast drying tanning mousse with pHenO2 Technology for a long lasting, natural-looking tan result with instant colour and a tan that develops over 4-8 hours and lasts between 2-3 weeks. 

2.  Ecotools Brush Sets (25 Credits each)

As someone who’s played with A LOT of makeup from all different price points, I’ve learned a bit of a valuable lesson when it comes to putting your best face forward. The truth is that a great formula is only half the battle and if you have a few awesome tools at your disposal you’ll definitely get the most out of your products. Luckily for us Love Me Beauty have featured four beautiful brush sets by Ecotools. Cruelty-free and eco-friendly, all the brushes have synthetic soft bristles and bamboo handles with a metallic band made out of recycled aluminium and each set conveniently comes with a pouch to keep the brushes protected and in one place whether on the dresser or travelling. The four sets available are:

  • Starter Collection (RRP £14.99)
    A six piece starter set including five brushes as well as a cosmetic pouch to carry your brushes on the go. Set includes: Concealer brush, Eye Shading Brush, Angled Liner Brush, Lash & Brow Groomer, Blush Brush. 

  • Eye Collection (RRP £12.99)
    A six piece eye set including five brushes, as well as a cosmetic pouch to carry your brushes on the go. Set includes: Large Eye Brush, Angled Crease Brush, Petite Eye Shading Brush, Smudge Brush and Ultra Fine Liner Brush.
  • Travel Collection (RRP £9.99)
    A five piece travel collection including four brushes, as well as a cosmetic bag to carry your brushes on-the-go. Set includes: Complexion Blending Brush, Shadow Smudge Brush, Angled Liner Brush and Powder/Blush Brush for perfect make up application. 

Whether you’re just starting out your brush collection, or are one of those there-is-no-such-thing-as-too-many-brushes beauty addicts I would definitely recommend grabbing these sets while they’re still in stock. All the brushes are labelled so you know exactly what they are meant for something I wish more brands would incorporate, we’re not all Mua’s! 

3.  Dr Lipp Original Nipple Balm for lips  – (20 credits) 

The Dr Lipp Original Nipple Balm is an extremely versatile, healing and nourishing balm thanks to one key ingredient, Lanolin. The formula is 100% natural, hyper allergenic, odourless and contains no parabens. I already use this as a lip balm and it’s great for chapped or sore lips and is a true hero during the colder months. The balm also has multi purpose uses and isn’t just restricted for the lips. It soothes dry and sensitive skin and can be used for dry cuticles, dry skin patches, burns and abrasions, sore nipples, split ends and eczema.

4. Madara Cellular repair serum (Travel Size 15ml. 15 credits)

Madara practice an entirely natural and ecological ethos according to the international ECOCERT standard that prohibits the use of synthetic perfumes, synthetic preservatives like parabens, mineral oil, propylene glycol and other synthetic ingredients. 

The Time Miracle Cellular Repair Serum, is a clinically proven concentrate for active anti-aging care that dramatically boosts the cellular renewal cycle to visibly improve the smoothness of the skin and reduce the appearance of lines and wrinkles. With facial contours becoming firmer; the skin is recharged with essential moisture and vitality. This can be layered under your morning and/or night moisturiser however if you’re skin’s on the oily side like me then this moisturising formula suffices just on its own making it a great choice for the warmer months. 

5. Nuxe (10 credits)

The Nuxe Prodigieuse OR (sample size) is a multi-usage dry oil for the face, body and hair which results in a beautiful veil of soft shimmer making it such a great addition to cheat that glow and luminosity, it’s like liquid gold in a bottle! The consistency is quite thin and applies without any streaks and as the name suggests the finish is dry so you won’t feel oily or sticky. If you love perfumed body products then you’re in for a real treat as this carries the same signature scent as the original Nuxe Prodigieuse Oil and needless to say it’s absolutely gorgeous. 

Described as an ultra-sensorial shower oil which gently cleanses, leaves a satin finish and a delicate fragrance for a moment of pure pleasure the Nuxe Prodigeaux Shower Oil (Travel Size 30ml) really is sunshine in a bottle and again smells amazing, it’s a true shower treat!

My Verdict

If you want to rock the sun-kissed goddess look, looking for some new make up brushes or some skin and body care pick me up’s then this month’s collective will not fail to help you look and feel summery all year long. Once again there’s a good balance of full sized and travel sized samples so it’s a great way to try out a brand you’ve been curious about or discovering something new plus I absolutely love who they’ve partnered with this month especially Vita Liberata, a brand that I’ve had a really positive experience with so I can’t wait to try out some more of their collection. There’s also a really generous selection from Ecotools so if you’re after some ethical and cruelty-free brush sets then you’ll definitely want to grab these as I can’t see them sticking around for long! 

If you’re not a fan of surprises when it comes to beauty boxes then Love Me Beauty is the perfect choice and destination for those who want more of a personalised subscription service that offer flexibility all month long meaning there’s an opportunity to extend your credits with their value add-on packages and the best bit is they’re always refreshing their boutique with lots of new and exciting products so they’ll always be something to tempt you with an extensive range on offer.
