If there’s one month I particularly like to indulge myself in it’s December. Those long dark evenings really do call for decadent scents, flickering candlelight and sumptuous bubble baths. With that in mind You Beauty Discovery brought their subscribers a short-list packed full of luxurious beauty products, guaranteed to deliver a little sparkle to these cold winter months.
My first choice from this month’s shortlist was the Candle De La Crème Votive Candle (RRP £6.95). This candle range by Beverley Pollington is made entirely from soy wax and uses only the finest essential oils and natural ingredients to bring you true to life scents that are safe to use. The Ylang Ylang & Cedarwood Spa Massage Candle also features drops of vanilla essence and slithers of orange peel to create a fresh, sweet, warm fragrance that is utterly gorgeous.
The perfect partner to a pamper session is a beautifully scented moisturiser so my next choice was a 50ml sample of REN Moroccan Rose Otto Body Lotion (value £6.50). This easily absorbed body cream features rose otto oil from damask rose petals and essential fatty acids from rosehip seed oil to nourish and moisturise the skin, leaving it lightly scented with soothing roses.
Each box also includes a 1ml sachet of Studio10 Miracle Effect Priming Serum, which is said to deliver instantly visible anti-aging results, and a sample of Narciso Rodriguez NARCISO eau de toilette.
Other products in the December shortlist, which is still available to choose from, include; Philosophy renewed hope in a jar eye cream (3ml), Heaven Skincare Silver Bee Venom Mask (5ml), KIKO Long Lasting Stick Eyeshadow, Beatitude Joy Body Oil (10ml), NUXE Huile Prodigieuse Or (10ml), and PIXI Glow Tonic Exfoliating Toner (15ml).
There are some great brands and products in this month’s line-up, albeit many of the sample sizes are on the small side. I’m very pleased with my selection, in particular the candle which smells divine, and I still think that for £6.95 a month this is one beauty box you cannot resist. What did you choose?
