So Susan is a brand that fuses skin-loving ingredients with colour to create multi-functional fun cosmetics that do your skin good while making it look amazing! Created in 2013 by Susan Chyi, this brand is 100% cruelty free and has a fantastic philosophy of making woman beautiful from the inside out to reveal the best version yourself you can be! So Susan created their monthly Lip Love subscription box due to the huge demand from their US-based fans who wrote to them requesting a subscription plan for their favourite colour-focused, skin-loving products that spans the entire So Susan product range. Their subscription is slightly different to others in that its technically a beauty bag not a beauty box, and you can purchase previous months bags from their website if you like the look of them so you’ll never miss out on a bag you really wanted or the products in it ever again! So Susan publish a new Lip Love bag every month and each bag contains three full-size beauty or make up items plus a bonus product and bonus accessory! Most of the items in the bag are kept secret, just like most beauty boxes, however you can get a preview of your monthly bag via the So Susan website each month if you really can’t wait and if you love any of your monthly products you can purchase from the So Susan website too!
What does it Cost?
The So Susan Lip Love Bag costs £14.95 plus P&P of £4.95 for your first months bag but every subsequent bag you purchase during you subscription will receive Free Shipping, so you’ll only pay £14.95 a month with no added extras or hidden costs going forward. Any additional bags you wish to purchase must be purchased along with your first bag, and because you can run your subscription is a month-to-month rolling plan cancelling your subscription is nice and easy plus just like with other beauty boxes you can take out three or six month subscription plans which will save you money. The the three month plan works out at £11.45 a box and the six month plan works out at £12.06 per box! So Susan often have introductory offers on their monthly Lip Love Bags so it is always worth visiting their website for the most up to date information and I always advise reading the full T’s & C’s before subscribing to any monthly beauty service.

The Pro’s and Con’s
I love the quirky nature of the So Susan Lip Love Bags! The idea of getting a make up bag filled with skin-loving make up and multi-tasking beauty products all the way from the USA every month is great at any time, but when it’s from such a unique and innovative brand like So Susan it makes it so much better! The price of the bags is really good value for money as you get at least five products, plus your make up bag and at least three of those product are guaranteed to be full-size. All your products will be from So Susan, so if you’re not keen on trying products from just one brand month after month it may not be the right beauty box (or bag) for you, however the products are amazing and are exclusively available with in the UK via the Lip Love Bag! The P&P is Free after your first subscription plan order and as it’s a rolling month-to-month subscription you can cancel your plan at any time, plus you have the ability to ‘skip’ a months bag if you want to without needing a reason, and then resume your subscription without having to repay the initial order P&P (which is £4.95) that you would incur if you chose to cancel then re-subscribe at a later date! They have a loyalty scheme and affiliate scheme too called Pretty Points so if you really love your So Susan cosmetics then you’ll be rewarded for staying loyal! The brands packaging and indeed the boxes presentation in general is so feminine and pretty it really stands out for me – I love the soft tones and floral aspects that feature in a lot of the ranges boxes and tubes as it makes me feel girly and spoilt which is the whole point of subscription beauty boxes right?
