I see you, Beauty Pie skincare. Being all understated and excellent. Have worked it out, the Beauty Pie experience, at last. Sure, the colour cosmetics are nice, well formulated and competitively priced. But it’s the skincare that is the thing. Like it more and more with every product that I try. The latest being the Beauty Pie Jeju Overnight Moisture Superinfusion, £8.90 for members (£70 non-member price). Love love love this stuff. Ostensibly a night cream, a function it performs perfectly, but it is just as good used in the morning as a base for makeup.
It is incredibly similar to the Bobbi Brown Vitamin Enriched Face Base, £44, same whipped texture, even the same citrussy scent. It hydrates and plumps without making skin sticky or shiny, and provides a soft and smooth base for foundation.
As a night treatment it is also fantastic, particularly when layered over a facial oil. You can feel that the product is still there when you shower the next morning, yet your face doesn’t stick to the pillow at night. A gentle, comforting hug of a face cream. Am currently racing through my first jar and already know that I will replace it.
Fortunately, replacing it is not overly cost prohibitive. At £8.90 for a 50ml jar it feels like good value even when you factor in the £10 membership fee and £3.36 shipping, which puts it up around the £22 mark, a price point comparative to the M&S Formula Absolute Sleep Cream, another product that I love. Though given the choice I would pick the Jeju over the M&S any day of the week.
Have fallen so hard for Beauty Pie skin that I sort of don’t want to buy anything else. There is too much to explore, a lovely looking cleansing balm, or a hyaluronic acid serum, not to mention the Beauty Pie Super Retinol (+ Vitamin C) Night Renewal Moisturiser I am yet to try. Plus it looks so nice all lined up in my bathroom cabinet with it’s clean lines and minimalist design. Beautiful inside and out.
Til next time,
