Mecca Beauty Loop Box April 2016

Anyone who knows me knows how much of a fan I am of Mecca and their Beauty Loop rewards program! One of the sweet perks about their rewards program is a quarterly box of samples for you to try out. This quarter's box was released this week and I honestly have to say it is the best box I have received so far!

I received the Level 3 box which included three AMAZING deluxe samples:

As you can see, amazing value for money! It is by far the best box ever. The best thing - I haven't tried any of these products before (it's always an added bonus when you get brand new products to try!)

I love Josie Maran and this illuminator lives up to all the hype. I mix a small amount into my foundation and then apply and it leaves my skin looking glowing and healthy. 

I'm a lover of clay masks (and face masks in general - if you didn't know that you need to read my face masks part 1 and part 2) and this one is another fantastic example of a clay mask. It leaves my skin clear, soft and feeling fresh. There is always a joy of removing a face mask and your skin feeling really soft and it helps to clear up your blemishes!

I can't say I'm hugely excited or that I would repurchase it again, I haven't seen many changes in my skin while using it, plus it is quite pricey if there aren't many differences in my school.

I'm still on the fence about the Urban Decay spray, I think partly because my make up tends to last a fair while anyway and this spray hasn't made a huge difference in how long it lasts. I will continue to try and I'm being very optimistic! 

I've only used most of these once or two, except the REN and I'm now saving them to take away with me when I go overseas - they are the perfect travel size and exactly what I need to cut back on how much I'm going to be packing. 

My dog approved of April's Beauty Loop Box!

Did you guys get a beauty loop box? What level are you and what did you get? I'm kind of jealous about level 2 that got the Josie Maran Pure Argan Treatment Milk, I've heard such amazing things about that product too!!

I also have a free make up application in May, another perk of the Beauty Loop program! Thanks for all the great perks Mecca!! 

Coming over the next few weeks: April hits (aka faves), April misses and April empties. Stay tuned to find out what I've been using and loving (or not so much) over April!! (How many times can I use April in a sentence...)



  1. What an awesome box! Mecca is coming to my city soon, so I'm sure I'll qualify for these boxes in no time haha. At the moment I'm still under beauty loop 1. I've heard so much about the Urban Decay spray. Kinda glad its a bit 'meh'. It cost the $$$

    1. It's dangerous!! Haha I always end up spending money when I go in, I have to avoid it all the time! Yea I wasn't hugely excited about it, I didn't notice a huge difference, I'll see how I go after using it for a while :)

  2. Sounds like an excellent rewards deal Laura - some beaut and high quality products there, keen to know what you think of the REN cream x

    1. It was fantastic!! I certainly will :) It will probably appear in an empties blog post once I've finished it! x

  3. Wow! This Mecca box looks amazing! Mecca has one of the best loyalty programs going!

    Thanks for joining in the Monday Makeup Madness link up again :)

    1. I love their rewards program! I'm getting my make up done later this month for a function, completely free! It's fantastic! I always get so excited about their Loop Boxes and this once is one of the best!

      Thanks for hosting it again, I love being apart of it and discovery new blogs :)

  4. I love this box.. It has some great products! I've to check out mecca rewards program..

  5. WOWY! I'm so shocked at the quality of products you received. This rewards box is awesome. Thanks for sharing Laura. I hope you enjoy them all x
