When I put my first Beauty Pie order in I was like a child in a sweet shop. Being able to buy premium makeup and skin care at a fraction of the price (up to 85% off) is an exciting concept.
Beauty Pie is kind of like Costco (but also not really). You pay a monthly membership, starting from £10, which then gives you a balance of £100 (retail value) to spend. The savings are up to 85% because Beauty Pie cut out the middle man and you can see where the money goes for each product. Each product comes with its own “Price Transparency”; you can see what the product costs, as well as warehousing and safety costs. I like this idea and my post yesterday on Adexe watches also do something similar. This is probably due to the success companies like Everlane are having with transparency. People are becoming more aware of the journey a product makes, or at least are trying to.
My first purchases were a little bit of a let down though unfortunately. The lipstick I bought was no where near like the colour on the site and my skin type didn’t get on well with the foundation. I am glad I tried again because I hit jackpot with the next set of purchases.
Beauty Pie have an amazing selection of skin care so choosing a couple of products to start out with was very difficult. I decided to go for the Plantastic Micropeeling Super Drops. This clear serum is said to help refine pores, even out skin tone, give the skin a glow, as well as soften and smooth the skin. It does this through gentle exfoliation, with things like this:
Banana, caja and mango fruit acid smoothers
Exfoliating black willowbark extract (Salicylic acid)
Kiwiberry stem cells for healthy skin
Vitabright extract for refining pores and reducing the appearance of pigmentation
Purifying antimicrobial biosurfactant
I’ve been using Plantastic Micropeeling Super Drops for several weeks now and I really love it. My skin is so much smoother and some light scarring I had is reduced already. There’s definitely an overall improvement in my skin tone and my skin just looks fresher and more healthy. I really rate this product and it’s even gentle enough for very sensitive skins. (This would retail at £50 but Beauty Pie’s price is £10.40!).
I also bought Beauty Pie Super Healthy Skin Daily Vitamin Defense Serum. This serum contains:
Superox-C – Vitamin C from Kakadu Plum, it fights off free radicals, helps to improve radiance and helps reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles
Shea Butter – nourishing, moisturizing and softening
Raspberry Stem Cells to help soothe the skin and protect it from environmental damage
Thymulen 4 BG 100 –to help boost skin health and fight the visible aging process
Echinacea extract which tones, stimulates and helps to maintain healthy looking skin
And my skin really loves this. The serum feels super-light and absorbs easily leaving the skin soft and hydrated. You only need 2-3 drops for a good hit on the skin so it should last a while. Serums are one of my favourite skin care products (you can read my thoughts on Aldi’s budget one here) and Beauty Pie Super Healthy Skin Daily Vitamin Defense Serum is definitely one of my favourites. (This cost me £11.98 but would have been £80).
I also purchased several other makeup items which I also love and will probably blog about at some point, but I especially love the Powder Matte Lip Crayon. I have it in Guilty Girl and just purchased another shade Catch A Boy. I’ve also just added the Jeju Overnight Moisture Infusion to my basket. This is always sold out so I am really excited to try this.
Have you tried Beauty Pie? Do you like the concept behind it?
