I love beauty boxes and have tried several over the last year but I soon tire of them or realise that I should be spending my money else where. They are a lovely treat but the are an expensive treat and always the first thing to go when I need to tighten my budget. Of all the beauty boxes I have subscribed to over the past few months, I have never been more impressed than by You Beauty Discovery. At the moment it is the only box I subscribe to and I can't see myself cancelling any time soon.
Firstly this box is less of a gamble because you get to choose 2 of the products that you are sent. The list always has a variety of products to choose from in full size and luxury sample sizes. With your 2 chosen products you are sent 2 extras. These are usually small samples or sometimes food. These add the surprise factor for those that like that element of beauty boxes. The whole thing is packaged nicely in a cute wee box which I use again. However the best part for me is the price. At £6.95 including postage this is by far the cheapest beauty box on the market.
Now for this months box:
L'Oreal Paris Infallible Lip Colour in Timeless Rose £9.99
It's always nice to see a makeup product on the selection so I instantly added this to my box! Two shades of this were available, the Rose which I chose and a brighter pink. I thought about choosing both but decided to be a bit more adventurous! This is an interesting product and unlike any other lipsticks that I have. The colour is applied using an applicator and stains the lips. When it is dry, the other end is a conditioning balm and helps keeps lips hydrated.
Rituals Zensation Organic Rice Milk & Cherry Blossom Foaming Shower Gel 50ml sample
I tend to stick to makeup and facial skincare products from these boxes so decided to go for something a bit different this time. This is a decent sized sample which will provide plenty of uses and will be handy for swimming, the gym or wee trips away.
Overall I am really pleased with this months box and can't wait to see what You Beauty have to offer next month.
