This is my 5th Love Me Beauty box, and it's my favourite so far - they just keep getting better! This month, I received products from brands like Caudalie and Pixi that I have always been so intrigued by... they definitely lived up to their expectation. I would genuinely recommend this box to everyone. You can choose up to 6 products for £8 if you use the discount code 'rikki20' at checkout. This is honestly the most amazing deal- the products you receive would cost you an arm and a leg if you were to buy them individually.

Firstly, I received this Caudalie "divine oil" which is a multipurpose oil, for your body, face and hair. Personally, I feel like this product is a lot more suitable for the winter, as that's when my skin tends to get dryer. Recently though, I've been adding just a drop of this oil to my hair to help nourish and hydrate it, as it has been super dry recently, which is something I've never really experienced before.

Then, there was this 10ml sample of the radiance serum (also by Caudalie). You're supposed to apply this in the morning and evening along with your normal, daily moisturiser. I absolutely adore the incredibly lightweight and almost watery consistency of this serum... The smallest amount goes a long way! I love how this doesn't make my skin feel at all greasy and how it has a very subtle scent. I personally don't like to use heavily scented products on my face.

When I first looked into my Love Me Beauty bag and saw Pixi products, I can't even begin to tell you how excited I was. The other day I popped into my local M&S and noticed that they had expanded the number of beauty brands they store there. Pixi was the one which stood out to me, I was really intrigued by their unique products but wanted to do some research before purchasing them. In this box, I got not one, but two products from them- firstly, a correction concentrate (a concealer) and I really like this as it has a creamy texture, meaning it's very easily blendable.

Next, I got this apricot and grapefruit lip scrub. If you know me, you know I love lip scrubs, but never have I seen one in a squeezable tube form, like this one. It's designed to exfoliate and plump your lips- and it certainly did that! The applicator has these small rubber bristles which helps when applying it as it increases circulation... It has a relatively sticky and gritty consistency which I think is the perfect combination.

I then received this O.P.I polish in the shade Strawberry Margarita (the polish is a lot brighter and more vibrant than it appears in my image). I was so amazed when I got this product, because despite normally getting polishes in these boxes, they're usually smaller and travel sized. This one however was a full sized polish, which I thought was amazing and alone makes the box well worth it.

Finally, I got some facial wipes. I've never tried the yes to brand before but I always see them in Boots. I've heard really good things about their other ranges (carrots, tomato's, grapefruit, blueberries and coconut) and had high expectations for the cucumber one too. These wipes are perfect for summer as they have a cooling and soothing sensation on your skin. The pack contains 10 wipes, and each wipe is soaked with aloe vera and cucumber. They're very generous with the amount of product they put on the wipes too.

So, that's everything I received in this months box. Like I said, this has probably been my favourite box yet- and I would 100% recommend it! Once again, if you want to get 20% off (£2 off), you can do by using the discount code 'rikki20' at checkout. See you next week...
