You Beauty Box June 2016 – Contents & Review

You Beauty Box June 2016

You Beauty Boxes are my favourite monthly beauty box – I’ve tried a fair few over the years but what sets You Beauty apart is:

Choice – you can select 2 products from the monthly shortlist. This is the best feature as you have control over what they send you

Quality – the monthly shortlist contains items from well known brands Murad, Nails Inc, St Tropex, Nuxe, Balance me etc. I find a lot of other beauty boxes are stuffed with products from new and sometimes obscure brands that I’ve never heard of before and wouldn’t even want if they were free

Price – only £6.95 a month including postage and packaging. This is considerably less than most beauty boxes

Size –  The products are travel size so they are a decent size

Also, there’s always a little excitement to come home to find the little box waiting to be opened and devoured!

You Beauty Box June 2016 – Contents & Review
From June 2016’s shortlist, I chose the Murad AHA/BHA Exfoliating Cleanser 30ml. I love acid toners and wanted to try this cleanser. Murad is well known for luxury skincare so I’m looking forward to seeing how this performs as I haven’t tried any of their range before. It’s a good size and will probably last me 2 weeks. The full size 200ml retails for £34.00 at Murad so this box is offering you a really cheap way of trying out a high end cleanser.

Another selection was Nails Inc nail polish in Porchester Square. It’s the full size version and it’s selling on Feel Unique for £14! You’ve made your money back just on this! Porchester square is one of their bestselling muted mushroom polishes and can be worn day or night for a chic nail look – again something I’ve been wanting to try for ages. Can’t wait to slap this on my nails.

Devil’s claw was a standard inclusion and it’s a red liquid that you can add into a bath to help soothe any aches and pains. It’s got a herbally scent and I’m curious to try this.

GLOSSYBOX FEBRUARY 2014 – OOH LA LA

Glossybox February 2014 Sam Loves

Glossybox February 2014 Sam LovesLast month’s January Glossybox was such an utter disappointment that I didn’t even bother photographing the contents. So it was with bated breath that I opened my special edition Valentine’s February Glossybox and boy, it’s a corker! I am very pleased with the brands included and it has restored my faith in Glossybox. I am one happy bunny.

Love the full sized Ciate polish, Maybelline nude lipstick and eyelashes. Can’t wait to try the Nougat body shimmer as it looks really pretty. I have, of course, already demolished the Lindt bar!

The contents include:

THUMBS UP GLOSSYBOX! £10+£2.95 p&p for a monthly subscription.

You Beauty Box- December 2013

You Beauty Box December 2013

You Beauty Box December 2013

I have wanted to try the Becca Shimmering Skin Perfector for absolute AGES. I plan to use this 10ml sample size as a highlighter on the cheekbones and didn’t want to pay £30+ for a full size version of it. Also Becca is difficult to buy in the UK as it’s an Australian brand. I discovered that You Beauty had included this gem in this month’s beauty box and ordered one immediately.

I have to say that I am pretty impressed with the idea of the You Beauty Box. It differs from Glossybox as you get to choose 2 samples which you would like to try rather having no idea what you are being sent. This is handy if you want to customise your box and in my case I bought it specifically for the Becca Shimmering Skin Perfector. I also wanted to try the Lola Matte Long Lasting Lipstick – this is a new makeup line which will be sold at M&S.

The major advantage of this beauty box is that it is only £6.95 INCLUDING postage and I’ve also received a yummy chocolate bar and Jimmy Choo perfume sample. RESULT!
