It’s been a few weeks since November’s YOU Beauty Box landed on my doormat but finally I’ve found time to road test the products I chose and bring you my review.
If you’ve read my recent reviews you will know that the YOU Beauty Box had a little revamp a few months ago and there are now three membership tiers, which allow you to chose 2, 3 or 4 products from the monthly shortlist. I currently have a Gold Membership priced at £10.95, but even if you opt for the £6.95 Bronze Membership you will still find your box is great value. So what did I choose this month?
First of all I chose the AA Skincare Frankincense & Rose Face Cream (RRP £7.98), which is a full sized product. AA Skincare is a very affordable beauty brand that harnesses natural essential oils and botanicals to make their great quality products. This moisturiser is very nourishing and really helps to rejuvenate dull, tired skin.
My second pick was the Emma Bridgewater Feels Like Home Body Wash(RRP £9), a beautifully scented body wash which produces a rich creamy lather. The fragrance is a delicate and soothing mix of camomile, lavender and orange blossom and it really does envelop you and makes you feel comforted and uplifted – just like being home!
The third product that appealed to me was the Oils Of Heaven Organic Argan Face Oil (full size, 30ml RRP £19) Rich in vitamin E and essential fatty acids Argan Oil is a go-to product for me and this 15ml bottle is the perfect size for travel.
My final choice was the Organic Pharmacy Lip & Eye Cream (RRP £26.95). 100% natural this lightweight cream features shea butter, bilberry, evening primrose oil, rosehip and frankincense to hydrate, nourish and plump out fine lines and wrinkles.
Along with the items you pick from the shortlist YOU Beauty Box subscribers always receive a handful of extra goodies and subscriber offers. This month the extra treats include a sample of Flower by Kenzo EDP, a pack of 7th Heaven Nail & Cuticle Masques, a Popband Santa Baby Hair Tie Pack and a voucher for 25% off all purchases at Leonie Saliba. Gold members also received a leather keyring by Leonie Saliba.
Other choices this month included; Tecnic Eyeshadow Palette in Sultry or Nude, The Library of Fragrance Cologne Spray in Baby Powder or Gin & Tonic, Masque Bar Anti-Blemish Mud Mask, Dr.Hauscka Lavender Sandalwood Calming Body Wash & Hydrating Hand Cream Duo (10ml each), and Simple Kind To Skin Hydrating Cleansing Oil.
Priced at just £6.95, £8.95 or £10.95 depending on the membership level you choose the YOU Beauty Box is great value and is probably the cheapest beauty box on the market. I really love the fact that you can choose your own products and also how hassle-free it is to switch between the membership levels, so if you want to upgrade or even downgrade you simply log in to your account by the 28th of each month and select your membership level.
