Things I Love from Beauty Pie

Let's talk about something not books, mostly because I've decided to have a no-spend May, which of course means the only thing I can think about is spending. Yikes.

In a bid to distract myself from that, and because I have the browser open on my computer so I can not-shop whilst watching Schitt's Creek I thought I'd tell you about my 5 fave items from Beauty Pie.

So, the deal - of you've been living under a rock and thus don't know - with Beauty Pie is this: you pay a subscription fee every month which gives you access to reals nice skincare, make-up, etc for a fraction of what you'd pay on the high street. It's all Beauty Pie branded stuff, but allegedly some of it is dupes for famous brands, you're basically cutting out the middle man, the luxury packaging, the mega markups. So I pay a £5 per month subscription and that gives me £50 per month to spend across the site, unspent allowance rolls forward. Every time you purchase your allowance goes down, and the allowance is against the RRP not the Beauty Pie price. So if you buy a £5 mascara with an RRP of £20 you allowance drops by £20 but you only pay the Beauty Pie price of  £5. IT took me ages to get my head around that - til I signed up actually.

I love it.
