Recently the CEW held their awards and You Beauty Discovery featured the finalists in both their monthly box and a limited edition box.
As a subscriber to their regular monthly box I had already picked two of the finalists to recieve in my May box, but their Limited Edition box featured different products to those I had chosen so I decided to order that in addition.
The box was amazing value – costing only £16.95 (p&p included for members) – as one of the items alone retails at £14.99!
So what was included?
Dr Organic Argan Oil Hair Serum (Full size RRP £14.99)
This was nominated for best hair product at the awards, and looking online at reviews it’s easy to see why. I don’t know what’s wrong with my hair recently but it feels dry, despite having a tendancy to get greasy, so I’m hoping this oil will leave my hair feeling much more silky than it does currently!
Dr Organic also won best British brand.
Glamglow Tinglexfoliate 15g
This is a cult product despite being out a relatively short time. It was nominated for, and won, Best New Prestige Brand. I love masks so can’t wait to try it out!
Elemis Pro-Collagen Marine Cream 15ml
This is a tried and tested product from UK spa brand Elemis, so it’s lovely to see it included in the box and recognised at the awards by being nominated for Best Classic Beauty Product!
L’Occitane Almond Concentrate 50ml
As you may have seen in my previous posts i’m a L’Occintane fan, so of course I’m pleased to see a product from this gorgeous french brand, which was nomimated for Best New Bath / Body Product.
Philip Kingsley Elasticizer 40ml
Another product with a cult following, nominated for Best Classic Beauty Product, but one I hadn’t tried. Again i’m hoping this lives up to it’s reputation and makes my hair feel smoother.
Caudalie Divine Legs 5ml
I’ve used Caudalie skincare thanks to Latest In Beauty and it’s a lovely brand so i’m excited to try the body care! I’m not sure how far 5ml will go though which is a shame. This is a wash-off tinted lotion, which gives the legs a sunkissed look, and won Best New Self Tan Product.
Manuka Doctor Mini Hero Kit- Skin Treatment Serum, Targeted Wrinkle Filler, and Rejuvenating Face Mask
This is a new brand to me and was the winner of Best New Mass Brand. I’m not overly excited as these are sachets and I find them annoying to use, but the brand and products themselves sound interesting. Along with Manuka honey they contain bee venom, which seems to be the “in thing” so i’m hoping for, and expecting good things from these little sachets!
This is a box packed full of products that the industry has recognised as some of the best, therefore it’s pretty much impossible to say anything negative. Which such a wide range of products and (on the whole) generous samples it is a lovely box perfect for any beauty fans. With a value of around £120 it’s also exceptional value. Will you be buying?
