Beauty Pie Skincare – Is it worth a try!?
Beauty Pie launched towards the end of last year, and I featured them previously on my blog where I reviewed a selection of Beauty Pie Makeup. Within that post I also went into detail about the whole Beauty Pie concept, which is essentially a beauty brand that sells products at ‘full price’ or at ‘factory cost’ for members. A Beauty Pie membership is £10 per month, and you’re tied in for a minimum of three months.
Each month you’re able to purchase a maximum of £100 worth of products. My concern with the £100 limit is that the £100 refers to the full prices of items, and not the prices you’re paying as a member so if you purchase the Beauty Pie Super Healthy Skin Ultimate Anti-Aging Cream, that has a supposed full price of £100 so you’re unable to purchase anything else for a whole month. ** Beauty Pie have reached out to me to let me know that the monthly total *does* rollover – which is MUCH better**. Now let me introudce you to Beauty Pie Skincare.
Beauty Pie won’t appeal to everyone, but it is an unique concept as they claim their products have similar formulas to bestselling higher end products, with no middlemen and no markup. The Beauty Pie skincare does definitely have super sleek and luxurious packaging, and to me is very reminiscent of the Chanel skincare collection with weighty glass jars and textured cardboard boxes.
I have been trialling three of the Beauty Pie Skincare range over the last couple of months, so I could report back on my honest thoughts on the products alone and let you know if I think their skincare is worth a try.
As it stands currently, there are twelve products to choose from, with the range being extended later this year. The cheapest ‘factory cost’ within the skincare range is £4.88 (full price £25) whilst the most expensive is £12.28 (full price £70), and the Beauty Pie skincare products I have been trying the Beauty Pie Super Healthy Skin Ultimate Anti-Aging Cream, the Beauty Pie Plantastic Youth Guard Eye Cream and Beauty Pie Fruitizyme Five Minute Facial.
Beauty Pie Super Healthy Skin Ultimate Anti-Aging Cream – Full Price £100 / Factory Cost £10
- Visibly lifts, firms and plumps
- All-in-one super formula moisturizer
- Super healthy radiant skin formula
- Protects and softens the skin
- 77% agreed their skin looked younger after 4 weeks
- 100% agreed their complexion was more uniform after 4 weeks
- Acts like a moisture cloud cream with Hyaluronic Acid
- Moisturizes and firms
- Safe for use around the eye
“A one-cream-wonder with wrinkle-rewinders, complexion brighteners, our favourite: hyaluronic acid, face sculpting proteins, antioxidants, pollution blockers, moisture plumpers, free radical battlers, stem cell re-energizers and powerful plant actives, it’s the latest Swiss skincare discovery. Massage a generous amount onto well-cleansed face, neck and décolletage. Apply sunscreen on top.”
I couldn’t quite believe that they’re marketing this cream as having a full price of £100, and they’re able to sell it for £10 as we’re saving so much money. It’s designed for those with dry/dehydrated skin which is exactly my skin type, so I was looking forward to giving it a try. Out of the three products I’ve tried, this was slightly underwhelming as I didn’t really notice anything remarkable from using the product within my routine which could be down to my age as I’m 30, so I don’t have wrinkles or the need to make my skin look younger.
Maybe it’s more effective for those with signs of aging, but for me it was a really lovely moisturiser which was a pleasure to use and I’ll certainly finish, but it’s not as amazing as the other two products I’ve tried so I’d recommend reading the reviews on the product page to see what other’s had to say.
Beauty Pie Plantastic Youth Guard Eye Cream – Full Price £40 / Factory Cost £5.26
- Formulated for all skin types
- Visibly firms and energizes
- A de-puffing caffeine-based eye cream
- Hydrates and smooths skin
- Helps protect against the early signs of aging
- 92% of people felt that the area around their eyes looked more hydrated after initial use
- 78% of people felt that the area around their eyes looked healthier after four weeks of use
- 88% natural ingredients
“So – the skin around your eyes is thinner, lacks natural oils (wrinkles more), on a tired day may even appear to have turned purple, and it will always seem to age faster than the rest of your face. To all that, we say: VIVE LA RESISTANCE! Gently pat around the eye area using your ring finger, morning and night. Allow it to fully sink in before applying makeup.”
I was most intrigued by this eye cream as the statistics were impressive. As I mentioned above, I don’t suffer from wrinkles or fine lines yet but I do have dry skin so the skin around my eyes is often very dry which effects my makeup application. If I had to compare this eye cream to another I’ve tried, I really would say it’s similar to the Kiehls Creamy Eye Treatment with Avocado, except this eye cream is a little less rich in comparison.
It’s easy to apply, and absorbs quickly into the skin making it ideal to prep the eye before applying makeup. My skin is left feeling so silky and smooth, and most importantly; intensively hydrated, making it a very welcome addition to my skincare collection, and is my morning eye cream of choice whilst the Kiehls eye cream is my evening eye cream as it’s a little richer. I would highly recommend this eye cream!
Beauty Pie Fruitizyme Five Minute Facial – Full Price £50 / Factory Price £5.86
- Super-smoothing, purifying and resurfacing
- Helps prevent and reduce clogged pores
- Leaves skin clear, smooth and clean
- The best do-it-yourself facial peel we’ve ever tried
- 95% of people felt their skin looked brighter directly after use
- 73% of people felt their skin looked younger directly after use
- Tube made of 55% post recycled plastic
“The best do-it-yourself facial peel we’ve ever found! Use weekly (at least) for a perennially fresh complexion. Massage a grape-sized dab onto a clean face, neck and chest – avoiding the eye area. Leave on for five minutes (ten, if your skin is clogged or congested) before rinsing off with warm water. Pat dry, then apply serum, treatment cream and/or sunscreen.”
From the trio of Beauty Pie skincare products I was kindly sent by the brand, the Beauty Pie Fruitizyme Five Minute Facial was the one I was most excited about trying as I love anything that contains acids to help slough away dead skin cells, and this is a manual and chemical exfoliator in one. The mask has very fine exfoliative particles which gently buff the skin without leaving it feeling red raw and uncomfortable. My skin is super sensitive so it can become very red and inflamed when using a product like this, but I haven’t experienced any redness whilst using this whatsoever.
It’s like a face scrub, an exfoliating toner and a face mask in one as it exfoliates the skin leaving it clearer and brighter, whilst also being purified and cleansed at the same time and I like to leave it on my skin for fifteen minutes for maximum results. I can’t think of a product which performs like this, but it’s definitely my favourite Beauty Pie Skincare or makeup product I’ve tried thus far, and the one I’d recommend trying the most but overall I’m pleasantly impressed with the Beauty Pie skincare range.
