You may recall in last month’s review I said that You Beauty Discovery were undergoing a revamp and I shared some misgivings, sincerely hoping they wouldn’t change their fabulous beauty box concept too much. Happily I’m pleased to report YOU Beauty Box has remained pretty much true to its roots, still costing a bargainous £6.95 and giving subscribers a choice of two items from a stellar product lineup. In fact aside from a new website and name, the concept is unchanged much to the relief of its loyal subscribers. So let’s take a look at my picks from February’s shortlist.
Tying in with the theme of Rested & Radiant my first choice was the Mauli Himalayan Healing Salts (RRP £6, 60g). I love a good soak in the bath and these bath salts, infused with 84 minerals, 13 essential oils and calming Rose Quartz, will ensure my body and mind are restored and destressed. Mauli can be found in Harvey Nichols and Liberty so this is truly a luxury brand and I’m very excited to indulge myself!
My second pick was the Salon Science Cellucovery™ Scalp Tonic Treatment (RRP £22, 50ml). Featuring Swiss Apple stem cells this scalp treatment works from the root to rebuild and strengthen weak, thinning and aging hair. I’ve used Salon Science products before and have been impressed with them but this is a new discovery and as I’m still trying to grow my hair i’m hoping this will help give me the stronger, healthier locks I crave.
This month each box also includes two sample sachets of the brand new Real Techniques Brush Cleansing Gel (7.39ml), a 10ml sample of Vita Liberata Self Tanning Night Moisture Mask and a 40ml travel sized Philip Kingsley Limited Edition Elasticizer Geranium and Neroli worth £15. I’m a huge fan of Philip Kingsley Elasticizer so this is a great extra! Existing subscribers who reactivated their accounts over on the new website also got a delux sample of Eyeko Black Magic Mascara.
The other products in February’s shortlist include; Benecos Sea Buckthorn and Orange Hand & Nail Cream (75ml), NIP+FAB Body Slim Fix (45ml), Tisserand Sweet Dreams Bath Oil (20ml), Aurelia Probiotic Skincare Refine & Polish Miracle Balm (15ml), Kevyn Aucoin The Matte Bronzing Veil in Desert Days (1.4g), Dr.Organic Organic Dead Sea Mineral Bio-Plasma Mud Mask (100ml), PURISKIN Resurfacing Cream for Face & Body (15ml), and PURISKIN Resurfacing Formula for Face & Body (15ml).
This is a great box and I think a really successful relaunch. I do hope this momentum continues and we see some dazzling lineups in the coming months!
