If last month’s YOU Beauty Box was a little disappointing then they have totally pulled out all the stops this month to redeem themselves with a showstopper of a line-up for October.
The Changing Seasons edit includes some fantastic products that will nourish, reinvigorate, soothe and pamper from top to toe. Hair, body, face will all benefit from the products that have been cherry picked for inclusion in this month’s box and there are some cracking brands to pick from including Aromatherapy Associates, ESPA, Olverum, and Indeed Labs.
I was really spoilt for choice when I saw the October shortlist so decided to go with the Gold Membership which allowed me to choose four products for just £10.95! The first product I chose was the Aromatherapy Associates Revive Body Gel. This full size product alone is worth an amazing £35, and its refreshing and invigorating scent of grapefruit, rosemary and juniper is gorgeous. The gel is designed to hydrate, even-out skin tone and texture, and to maintain a healthy micro-circulation, helping to blitz cellulite and tighten body contours.
The second product I selected was the Foreo Day Cleanser (100ml, RRP £25), a creamy cleanser which transforms from a creamy yogurt into a lush foam that instantly awakens and revitalizes the complexion. The formulation features bergamot, mandarin, and apricot fruit extracts to purify and hydrate, while probiotics and vitamin C nourish and protect. This is another generous full-size product.
My next pick was a 15ml sample of Caudalie Resveratrol Lift (50ml, RRP £42), a brand new day cream from French skincare brand Caudalie that helps smooth, contour and tighten the skin in a single step, to help create a visibly younger complexion. With soft focus matifying powders the cream also helps to instantly blur imperfections and prime the skin.
The final product to make my box was a Masque Bar Green Tea Sheet Mask (3 pack, RRP £9.99). Sheet masks seem to be popping up in these boxes quite regularly but as I love them it’s a bonus for me! This mask features Green Tea extract, Vitamin E and Phyto Collagen to brighten the complexion, plump out the skin and protect the cells from damage.
The bonus items included in this month’s box are a pair of 7th Heaven Glove Masques (RRP £2.99), a pair of 7th Heaven Foot Soak Masques (RRP £2.99), a £25 Everdine voucher and a travel sized Dentyl mouthwash.
This month Gold Members were also treated to a box of luxury Godiva Mousse Meringue Chocolates with a value of £23 – I can’t wait to delve in and indulge myself!
Other products in this month’s shortlist include; OWAY Colour Protective Hair Bath (50ml), Olverum Bath Oil (15ml), ESPA Optimal Skin ProSerum (8ml), FRUU Lip Balm in Avocado or Coconut (4.5g), Indeed Labs hydraluron moisture boosting mask, and Mandara Spa Shea & Coconut Hand Butter (75ml).
I’m really pleased with my box and excluding the chocolates the contents have a whopping value of around £82 in total, incredible considering the box only cost £10.95 including the postage! YOU Beauty have really outshone themselves this month with an amazing selection of beauty products, so if you’re tempted to sign up or you want to know more hurry over to the YOU Beauty website!
