Is Beauty Pie worth it?

Luxury makeup and skincare at drugstore prices? It sounded too good to be true so I had to try it. The premise of Beauty Pie is straightforward: you pay a small membership fee and in return you have access to luxury skincare, makeup and beauty products at a fraction of their retail price.

So how does it actually work?

You pay your monthly membership fee, and that equates to a spending allowance. £5 membership equates to a £50 allowance, £10 to £100, and £20 to a £200 allowance. The spending limit is the value of the products that you order NOT the price that you will pay. This may seem confusing at first but the website makes it very simple for you. For example, the Apricot Cleansing Balm which typically costs £50 will cost you £15. The £50 will be deducted from your spending allowance, however you will only pay the £15.

Plantastic Apricot Butter Cleansing Balm

A luxury cleansing butter that turns your makeup into milk. In terms of popularity, this is one of Beauty Pie’s best, hailed by skincare queen Caroline Hiron’s. It removes makeup so incredibly easily without being harsh on the skin. I follow this with another cleanser as I’m a fan of the double cleanse. You also only need a 5p size of product for even the most stubborn of makeup, and with a tub this deep I can see this lasting me a long time.

All-In-Wonder Tinted Illuminating Primer

I’ve been looking for a decent primer for absolutely agesss. Said to provide luminosity and makeup long-wear, this primer had amazing reviews. In my experience it does lengthen your makeup coverage and keep things in place. It’s not a primer that I’ll be shouting from the rooftops about but it’s one that I know will do the job and I’ll be repurchasing when I run out if I have the allowance.

Quick Contour Supergel – Shade : 01 (A Soft Brown)

I’ve found it so difficult to find an easily blend-able contour gel and sadly this hasn’t been the one for me. I’ve found that it sets very quickly and is hard to blend which is a shame as again it has rave reviews. It just wasn’t for me!

Superactive Capsules Essential Ceramides 

Beauty Pie’s capsules are hailed as absolute skin saviours. I had a tough time choosing which one I wanted first – I LOVE Vitamin C and Pixi’s Vitamin C collection is a daily go-to for me but these capsules caught my eye because they claim to balance the skin’s PH level and improve your skins natural barrier. When you first apply these they feel more like an oil than a serum, however after leaving for ten minutes they sink into the skin, and I’ve noticed a vast difference in my skins dewiness.

Double-sided Organic Cleansing and Exfoliating Cloths 

I’d been content with face cloths from Poundland, and then Pixi gifted me a face cloth and raised my expectations to a silly amount (I love them). These face clothes are brilliant. Coming in a pack of 3 they are multi-use, with one side being exfoliating and a softer side for ‘polishing’. I’ll definitely be repurchasing one more set and I’ll have the perfect collection.

Super Retinol (+ Vitamin C) Night Renewal Moisturiser 

This moisturiser is again massively hailed and praised. Because it contains retinol, I know people can experience a ‘purge’ for a week or two, where your skin reacts until it gets used to the retinol and so I’ve been using this three times a week. If I’m being honest I haven’t noticed much difference with using it, and I far prefer my Dr Botanicals and Pixi moisturisers.

QI Energy Double Cleansing Ginseng Micellar Water

I’ve been using this after cleansing with the balm and I love it. I’ve used Garnier Micellar water for years, and the quality difference with this is unreal. The water is super super refreshing and glides onto your skin. The best micellar water I’ve ever tried!

Everyday Great Skin Foundation – Shade : 100 Ivory (Pink Undertone)

This has been compared to Estée Lauder and Bobbi Brown but I have to say, whilst it’s a nice foundation, I personally don’t see anything special about it and I’ll be sticking with my Maybelline Superstay. It’s great for a light coverage/buildable foundation but it’s not the one for me.

Plantastic Micropeeling Super Drops

I LOVE this. Said to be the perfect skin treatment, I’ve been applying this to my skin in a morning after cleansing and before my serum and it’s done absolute wonders to my skin. I’ve read not to use this with the Ceramide capsules that I use nightly, and so I only use this in the day but I absolutely love it.

    Ah I’ve been dying to try Beauty Pie because I’m always seeing their promos everywhere. It seems like most of what you tried have been hits, so I may need to give this another look and consider signing up. The facial cloths sound wonderful!
