The You Beauty Discovery box is a monthly subscription beauty box brought to us by You Magazine. At £6.95 a month it is the cheapest beauty box on the market and it was the first beauty box that I discovered. I’ve been subscribed for nearly a year now although last month I did actually cancel after a few not so good boxes but when I saw the shortlist for this months box, I reinstated my membership.
How does You Beauty Discovery work then? Basically each month there is a shortlist of both beauty and skincare products, usually about eight items and you can choose which two you would like to receive. You also receive two to three bonus samples chosen by You Beauty, these can be anything from perfume samples to a mini Lindt Chocolate Bear (that was a nice treat!). Obviously due to the price, some boxes can be a bit disappointing but some can be pretty good too, like this one. Scroll down to find out which products I chose for this months box..
The Vintage Cosmetic Company Rose Gold Eyelash Curlers £8.00 – This is the item that made me reinstate my membership. The eyelash curlers are the most beautiful rose gold, I have to admit this was the main reason why I chose them, I’m obsessed with rose gold. I haven’t used them yet, but I have read good things about them from other blogs, so I’m looking forward to trying them out.
Percy & Reed Abundantly Bouncy Volumising Mousse £12.00 (Full size) – I chose this as my hair can sometimes do with a bit of volume. I’m a bit on the fence about this product at the moment, the mousse is tough to get out of the bottle and by the time I’m able to get it onto a comb from the palm of my hand like the bottle suggests, the product has already disappeared. So I’ve only been able to get a tiny amount onto my hair with no results, but I’ll keep trying and hopefully I’ll be able to see how well this works soon.
Dove Youthful Vitality Shampoo & Conditioner Duo – I quite like receiving samples of shampoo and conditioner, it’s a perfect way to try them out, if it doesn’t do anything for your hair then you don’t feel like you need to keep using it to get your moneys worth like you would full size. I haven’t tried these out yet as I recently won a full size Bed Head by Tigi duo, but once they’re finished I’ll be giving these a try!
Nakd Berry Delight Bar – I don’t really know what to say about this bar, it contains dates which I don’t like, so it’s unlikely I’ll be eating this. I wish they would of chosen the Cocoa Orange bar from Nakd instead, I’d be more likely to try it out.
Thats all the products from the You Beauty Discovery March box, it is obviously not as good as say, the Look Fantastic Beauty box, but for the price I think it’s pretty good. Hopefully next months box will be a good one too. Fingers crossed!
