Beauty Pie is the members club for beauty fans: you choose the level of membership you want (I have been on £5 / month for a couple of years, paid for by me) and for that you get a monthly spending allowance (which will roll over to the next month if you don't use it - I tend to save mine up) and beauty products at huge discounts when compared with their brand-name counterparts. If you're a new sign-up you can get an extra £50 spending allowance with code JASMINESENTME (affiliate). Overall, I've found the products to be of incredible quality! I actually don't tend to go for the makeup, so for my must-haves I'm sticking to skin and body products...
Let's start with cleansers. I have two because they're both amazing and I refuse to choose between them! The first is the Japanfusion Pure Transforming Cleanser | £6.92 for members (typical price: £25). This is such a fantastic multitasker; it's a moisturising morning cleanse, you can use it as a second cleanse for dry skin or it can also remove makeup. It's so hard to describe; it's sort of like this aerated creamy product as it comes out of the tube but as you massage it into dry skin, it melts down into something more oil-based. It doesn't feel at all heavy and completely emulsifies with water. There are some nice ingredients like Vitamin E (a nourishing antioxidant) but it is a wash-off product so - within reason - if it works then I'm not too fussed. I also love the Beauty Pie Super Healthy Skin Hot Oil Double Cleansing Balm | £12.09 for members (typical price: £50). Let me know if you want me to do some sort of a post comparing Beauty Pie products to other high-end alternatives, because this reminds me a lot of the Elemis cleansing balm, meaning it's pure luxury for £12! Rice bran oil, baobab and aloe juice are all in here. The balm melts into something oil-based with the warmth of your skin, melting down makeup and sunscreen. It emulsifies with water but it definitely feels more nourishing and leaves my skin softer. I'd say this one for dry skin, Japanfusion for everyone else.
The next product I really recommend checking out is the Triple Hyaluronic Acid & Lipopeptide Serum | £16.96 for members (typical price: £60). Hyaluronic acid is a water magnet, so apply it to damp skin so that water can be drawn into the layers of your skin. This utilises three molecular weights to evenly distribute this water content. So many affordable hyaluronic acid serums are sticky, tacky or otherwise unpleasant to apply, but this one is lovely and melts right in. The peptides in here also help to plump and hydrate my skin to temporarily improve the appearance of fine lines. Lastly, to round off this category, I'm going to talk about the Japanfusion Genius Lift Elixir* | £7.74 for members (typical price: £40). This is so hard to describe! It's almost like an oil-serum that gives you dewy, glowing skin. It's what I reach for when my skin is dry, tired and lacklustre. It does contain water-attracting humectants too, alongside moisturising castor oil and also antioxidants, that help prevent free radical damage.
