June’s YOU Beauty Box is here. Priced at a miniscle £6.95 the YOU Beauty Box is a fabulous way to discover some of the most exciting new beauty brands on the market and the bonus is that you choose the products yourself!
This month’s Energising Essentials Edit features innovative products and iconic beauty brands such as BareMinerals, KIKO and Nails inc. From haircare and skincare, to makeup and bodycare, every facet of beauty is covered ensuring there is something for everyone!
The first product I selected is the KIKO Velvet Touch Creamy Stick Blush in Hot Pink (10g, RRP £7.90). I’ve never tried KIKO although it is a brand that seems to have exploded recently with boutiques springing up in major shopping centres across the UK. KIKO is an Italian cosmetics brand, which features on trend colours and formulas, and it is definitely a brand to watch. This stick blusher is so creamy and glides on like a dream, while the pigmentation is strong and long-lasting.
The second product I opted for is the Ladival SPF 15 Spray (150ml, RRP £13.50). Whilst sun cream may not be the most exciting of products it’s definitely one you shouldn’t be without and Ladival sounds like a good quality choice. Non greasy, water resistant and easy to apply this sun lotion claims to provide protection against UVA, UVB and Infrared, and blocks out 4x more of the sun’s rays. Ladival does not contain any preservatives, perfumes, colourants, fats, parabens or PEG emulsifiers, which helps to prevent prickly heat and sun allergy and makes it a great option for those with sensitive skin. I’m hoping for some sun soon so I can put it to the test!
This month the box also includes a 20ml bottle of Kneipp Devil’s Claw Herbal Bath and a 3ml sample of Organii SPF 50 Sun Milk. As someone who suffers with back ache the bath oil is most welcome and I’m looking forward to indulging in a relaxing bath.
The shortlist this month also included;
Balance Me Congested Skin Serum (7ml), Murad AHA/BHA Exfoliating Cleanser (30ml), PRO:VOKE Liquid Blonde Colour Activating Treatment Shampoo (50ml), BareMinerals NEW SkinLongevity™ (7.5ml), bubbleT Revive, Stimulate or Restore Macaroon Lip Balm (7g), and Nails inc Porchester Square Nail Polish (14ml).
The YOU Beauty Box really is the best value box on the market and at just £6.95 a month including P&P it’s a great option for anyone on a budget. The fact that you can pick your two main items also gets the thumbs up from me.
