Ever since I cancelled my Birchbox subscription I’ve been itching to try another beauty box service. After much deliberation, I opted for the You Beauty Discovery Box. For just £6.95 a month you get to choose 2 products from their monthly shortlist of well-known and emerging brands. In addition to 2 products of choice subscribers receive 2 or 3 extra samples.
What I like most about subscription boxes is the element of surprise, however there’s also the risk that your box will contain products you won’t use. With the You Beauty Discovery Box you get the best of both worlds – samples you’ll actually use and a few surprises!
This month’s You Beauty Discovery Box is centred around the theme of “Perfectly Polished”, to help subscribers feel polished to perfection and “ready to take on whatever life throws at you”.
There were quite a few products I could have opted for but as soon as I saw the Eye of Horus Goddess Mascara I knew I had to try it. Promising to “strengthen and lengthen, won’t clump, run or smudge” whilst also being volumising and nourishing. I can’t wait to try this mascara.
I also opted for the Scentered Stress Less Therapy Balm simply because I’m not very good at de-stressing. I sometimes find it difficult to feel calm enough to fall asleep as I often have so many thoughts running around my brain that I can’t relax. I’m intrigued to see whether this balm will make a difference. The Scentered Stress Less Therapy Balm contains chamomile, neroli and mandarin and it is designed to be applied to pulse points to help reset your mood.
In addition this month’s bonus samples included sachets of Vichy Dermablend Foundation Shade 15 Opal and Shade 25 Nude and vials of The White Company Day and Night Fragrances. I’m not sure whether the foundation samples will be a good match for my skintone but I’ll certainly give them a go and it’s always nice to discover new fragrances. I’ve given both fragrance samples a spritz and I particularly like the Day perfume.
I’m really happy with my first ever You Beauty Discovery Box. There was plenty of choice in the monthly shortlist and I’m excited to try the products I selected, it’s also such great value, especially as postage and packaging is included in the £6.95!
