You Beauty Discovery – November 2015

One of my favourite monthly treats is the You Beauty Discovery box. An inexpensive subscription box, it costs only £6.95 and always features some big hitters in the beauty world. The best part is that you are able to select two of the products from a shortlist, meaning you can always be sure you receive products to your liking.

Bandzee Subscription

I hate bobbles, fact. I can never get the right number of twists to secure my pony tail; three is too loose and means my hair slips out, but try as I might I can’t get a fourth twist. They also pull at my hair causing breakage and fall out.

That’s where Bandzee* steps in. These ingenious hair elastics are soft, strong and secure. They’re also super-kind to the hair and rather handily can be worn on the wrist, meaning you need never be without a hair tie.
