Beauty Pie Update • (Part 1) Skincare


I can't believe it's been almost a year since I posted about Beauty Pie and my word, have they come on leaps and bounds since then. I realised the other day whilst doing my make-up that I now use at least one Beauty Pie product in my daily routine as it has fast become a brand that I absolutely adore, so about time for an update. 

Since that first post where I introduced you to Beauty Pie, my collection has grown massively. I always get asked what my favourite products are as I do post a lot of what I am using over on my IG feed, so for those of you wanting recommendations I thought it best I do an updated post on what's new and what I currently love from the brand. Beauty Pie have since launched a full Skincare line which has a few star players that I cannot recommend to you all enough.

Beauty Pie, Skincare
If you are not familiar with Beauty Pie then please do read my initial post that tells you how it all works before you read on [here!]. In brief, Beauty Pie is a monthly membership (NOT a subscription) the most important part to remember, NOT a subscription. Instead Beauty Pie brings it's members the best beauty products at FACTORY COST, yes you read that correctly. No Mumbo-jumbo, no middleman, no markups, simply a Private Buyers Club for Beauty Addicts. Unlike a subscription, you get to choose what you want, when you want. Membership starts from just £10/Month or £99/Year and get two months free, all with £100 monthly spend limit that can be carried over to another month should you want.

I was kindly sent over a few new products to try as well as ordering a few items myself and I have to say not only do Beauty Pie produce some amazing makeup products, they have got skincare well and truly figured out too

The Beauty Pie Skincare range itself is just right; there isn't too many products that it overwhelms you but enough to cater to all skin types. The packaging is beautiful; very Chanel-esque with gorgeous clean, sleek, weighty glass jars that add to the feel of a high end line.

There is in fact already a famous star of the show that has had many beauty editors, make-up artists and skincare specialists talking, so you may have already seen this one pop up in articles .... the Fruitzyme Five Minute Facial, now a Skincare Icon

Beauty Pie, Skincare, Fruitzyme Five Minute Facial
• FRUITZYME FIVE MINUTE FACIAL, 75ml
Suitable for Normal/Combination/Oily Skins - £60 / Member Price £7.73 (link!
This new icon is a weekly DIY at home facial peel that promises to deliver salon worthy results. Containing AHA's and BHA's it is designed to slough away all that dead skin that stops our skin from glowing. Pomegranate enzymes are used to clarify, Quartz and Bamboo grains are used to reduce clogging of pores as it gently buffs the skin as well as protecting it against free radicals. I love enzyme masks because you simply apply, then lie back and let them do all the work ... mess free! This particular mask works some serious wonder to give you clear, smooth skin and it really is that good. You know when you go for a facial and you leave the salon with 'that glow' well this is just that. It gives you 'that glow' in just 5 minutes. We can all spare 5 mins, whether you apply it as your brushing your teeth, or before you go to bed, or as your hair mask is on  ... regardless, I highly recommend adding this one to your shopping list as the hype around this one, is all very real. 

Beauty Pie, Skincare, Super Pore Detox Black Clay Mask
Beauty Pie, Skincare, Super Pore Detox Black Clay Mask
• SUPER PORE DETOX BLACK CLAY MASK, 125ml
Suitable for Normal/Combination/Oily Skins - £50 / Member Price £6.15 (link!) 
A Clay Mask that is designed to clear and detox your skin leaving it looking brighter and fresher in just 10 minutes. Containing Glycolic, Lactic and Salicylic acids this mask means business because all these ingredients work to triple exfoliate the skin, whilst Kaolin Clay, Bamboo, Liquorice and Eucalyptus all pull together to unclog pores and keep your skin clear. Ohhhh this is great for T-zones! Your skin shall never feel so clean after using this one and it doesn't dry hard so you won't get any tightness. If you are sensitive you may feel a slight tingle as the mask gets to work but that is all very normal when using acids. Once again I love all of the ingredients here as acids are one of the most powerful anti-ageing tools available to us at home. They really make a massive difference in helping with skin tone, texture, lines, wrinkles, acne, scarring, pigmentation etc hence acid lovers out there shall love this one. 

Beauty Pie, Skincare, JeJu Overnight Moisture Super fusion 
Beauty Pie, Skincare, JeJu Overnight Moisture Super fusion 
• JEJU OVERNIGHT MOISTURE SUPERINFUSION, 50ml 
Suitable for Normal/Dry/Mature Skins - £70 / Member Price £9.84 (link!
In the words of Beauty Pie "Hydration junkies, strap on your beauty helmets because this might be the most mind blowing night cream ever" - I mean, they hit the nail on the head with this wording; this is a DREAM CREAM.

This insanely luxurious Night Treatment contains JeJu Basalto micro volcanic sand that helps to detox and balance the skin and gives an immediate moisture infusion that hydrates, plumps, restores and ultimately moisturises like a dream. The texture of this cream is so unique and so beautiful with a fresh floral scent that literally feels like you are draping your face in velvet. It is so difficult to describe because I have never felt anything like it; not heavy, not sticky just a feeling of rich velvet that glides over your skin making it feel the softest it's ever been. I have been using it non stop because the results are simply amazing and my skin has never looked and felt so good after each use. Even though it is suggested to be suited to more normal/dry skins, I found it to work perfectly fine on my normal/combination skin as it is in fact designed to help balance, so just use it more sparingly. I really have noticed how good my skin feels and looks the next morning when I have applied this cream the night before and I have to say, my make-up sits on my skin so much better and looks flawless. In fact, this is one of my favourite skincare discoveries to date and I don't say that lightly. 

In my opinion any skin that is dry, dehydrated and a bit parched shall want to marry this cream. The fact that it has sold out due to an overwhelming demand speaks for itself. ** It is due back in stock at the end of January so I suggest you get yourselves on that waitlist because this is a MUST.

Beauty Pie, Skincare, Uber Youth Super Serum
• ÜBER YOUTH SUPER SERUM, 50ML 
Suitable for 35+ - £85 / Member Price £8.21 (link!)
A highly concentrated serum that is designed to act as a mini face lift in a bottle, plus who doesn't want 'Über youth'? This serum is designed to be hydrating, wrinkle fighting, skin brightening, pore minimising, firming whilst helping with age spots and pigmentation. This really is a multi-purpose anti-ageing serumI adore serums as I use them every day without fail and the description of this one had me nodding in agreement; Yes, I want ALL that! 

This is one of the best serums I have tried to date. I can't believe Beauty Pie has me so much in love as I far from excepted to be this impressed by a product, again. The gorgeous weighty bottle adds to the high end feel of this serum and makes any bathroom shelf look posh. It feels like a lightweight cream and as you warm it between your fingertips is loosens into a nice creamy consistency that smells divine, just like fresh roses in fact. This is a dream serum and my skin feels incredible every time I apply it. I haven't used it long enough to know the long term effects but after a few weeks of use combined with the SuperInfusion Night Cream, my skin definitely feels plumper, is well hydrated and just in really good condition. I would re-purchase this again and again without a doubt which makes me want to venture into trying more of their serums because this one beats many high end brands out there and is a total joy to use day after day.

Beauty Pie, Skincare, Plantastic Youth Guard Eye Cream
• PLANTASTIC YOUTH GUARD EYE CREAM, 15ml
Suitable for 20-35; All skins / first signs of ageing - £40 / Member Price £5.63 (link!)
A de-puffing caffeine based eye cream that visibly firms, energises, de-puffs, hydrates and smoothes the delicate eye area. It uses powerful plant lipids, shea butter, caffeine to name a few to become a perfect everyday eye cream. It is so important to use eye creams from as young as you can because the eyes are the first area to show signs of age.

I have always used an eye cream from a very young age and I am lucky to still not have any deep lines or wrinkles around my eyes because of my skincare upkeep. I personally like to layer this cream over the top of another eye treatment so it's a little more intense and adds in some extra hydration being in my late 30s now. This is a lovely, lightweight, creamy, hydrating eye treatment that is an ideal everyday eye cream for those who don't have too many eye concerns. Great for keeping the eyes protected and a preventive against the first signs of fine lines. It kind of reminds me a little of La Prairie's Eye Contour Cream which is a good starting block for those looking to start using a good eye cream.

FANTASTIC!
In all honesty, I was not expecting the skincare line to be this good. It wasn't that I had no faith in the brand, far from it, I just did not expect it to rival high end brands that have been around for years ... and Beauty Pie do. For a newbie line, they have well and truly done their homework. The Stars have definitely been the Über Youth Super Serum and the JeJu Overnight Moisture Cream both of which have made noticeable differences to my skin and are products I no longer want to be without in my collection. I would subscribe for those products alone, honestly.

The Make-up line looks simple yet modern and may not stand out as much as some other brands that spend a lot of money on packaging but I feel the Skincare packaging is so functional yet very luxurious with it's weighty glass bottles and black and white clean lines, making them stand out well amongst the competition.

Do I, Don't I .... 
The Beauty Pie concept won't appeal to everyone but you can't deny the products do, which is why you can of course purchase them at a non-members fee should you want to dip your toe in to see how you like them before you commit to reaping the full benefits of becoming a member. Don't forget when you are a member you can carry your allowance to the next month so if you re not quite ready to order more then have a month off and let it build up over the months it really is so workable. Beauty Pie is that brand where once you try one thing, you only want to try more things, hence Marcia Kilgore and her team have worked wonders to develop it in a way where they listen to what the consumer wants. 

If you are interested then Beauty Pie are currently offering DOUBLE your first months spend allowance, see all here!
