So this weeks blog is something I have been wanting to write for a while now as a compulsive beauty hoarder.
As soon as I see a new beauty brand on the market, a must-have product or a new acid or retinol, I need to have it. This often means I end up buying whatever it is, but consequently leaves me with no money left for food at the end of the month. This is the beauty of Beauty Pie – AFFORDABLE, luxury beauty products that won’t break the bank but still expose you to all the amazing products out there.
The low-down on Beauty Pie
Beauty Pie is a ‘luxury beauty buyers club’ where you can get high-end beauty products at a fraction of the price… as long as you pay a monthly membership. Each membership has a corresponding monthly spending limit based on typical prices.
You can pay £5, £10, £20 a month or £99 a year in order to join and you get the following:
I realise that may seem confusing so here is an example:
I pay £10 a month, therefore I get my £100 spending limit a month. I could then buy a moisturiser that is £10 (normally worth £60) and a cleanser that is £8 (normally worth £40) and therefore spend £28 (including my membership) for two products that would cost £100 (my monthly spending limit). Make sense?
Also if you don’t use up your full membership allowance one month, it rolls over into the next month and so on… Beauty Pie create these great products at such a low prices by cutting out the ‘middle-men’, shop costs and expensive marketing.
So is it worth it?
Firstly, I think in total I have saved around £400-£500 in the last year or so, which really does make me feel so much better about my product hoarding issues.
Secondly and most importantly – the products are amazing!! I have found so many products that I buy regularly and swear by, so I thought I would share them below.
My favourite Beauty Pie products:
This is an incredible cleanser for removing make-up and gently cleansing my skin! If you have quite sensitive skin and wear make-up regulary, this is perfect for you.
This is literally a facial in a bottle… or tube? It contains my all time favourite acid, salicylic acid, which helps unclog pores and prevent blemishes.
If you don’t use retinol, begin to use it! It’s amazing for brightening and smoothing out the skins texture. Just make sure you use an spf daily as well as retinol can leave the skin a little more exposed (in a good way). This brings me onto my next product…
It’s super important to wear spf daily (even when you’re indoors as windows don’t protect you from UVA rays). This moisturiser it great for putting under make-up as it’s super lightweight and hydrating (hello hyaluronic acid).
Recently purchased – LOVE! So hydrating and leaves my skin feeling as soft as a petal.
The best serum I’ve ever used – so hydrating and leaves skin feeling plump and fresh.
I use this on my T-Zone twice a week for a good detox and clear out – it works wonders!
I basically used this all of last summer and it gave me such a lovely glow. You could use it on its own or under foundation as a base.
Perfect for on-the-go – can’t go wrong with a nude lip!
The best setting powder I have tried – and I’ve tried a lot!
And that’s it! Although I have my eye on trying the fragrances, hair-care and the body sugar scrub so I think I will be putting in another order very soon!
Let me know if this has convinced you to join or whether you are already a member. Also if you have any questions, fire away!
Lots of love and take care,
