You Beauty Discovery – January 2016

The January You Beauty Discovery box will be the final one as we know it. Behind the scenes this beauty box has been having a makeover, and from February will emerge as You Beauty Box. Other than a new name and website the details of the makeover are sketchy, and as my favourite budget-beating beauty box I’m a little worried that they may change the concept completely.

Currently the You Beauty Discovery box costs just £6.95 and the concept is simple; from a monthly shortlist you choose two products and they are sent to you with a handful of extras. This box is great for those on a budget and who want a degree of choice, and it’s unique to any other beauty box on the market. So let’s delve into January’s box!

You Beauty Discovery Advent Calendar Unboxing

Over Christmas and New Year I had a well deserved break from my blogging schedule, which means I never got round to sharing the contents of the brilliant You Beauty Discovery Advent Calendar with you.

Beauty advent calendars have really been huge over the last few years with Lookfantastic, Benefit, L’Occitane, Selfridges, Jo Malone, Libertys, Marks & Spencers and many, many others all bringing out some very lustworthy examples, but for me it’s the You Beauty Discovery calendar that I feel offers the perfect balance between affordability and value. If you’re a beauty addict but haven’t yet treated yourself to one of these beauties where have you been?

This year the calendar was £10 more expensive than in previous years, priced at £59.99, but boasted contents that were worth in excess of £300. So what was inside and was the price increase justified? Lets take a look.

You Beauty Discovery – December 2015

If there’s one month I particularly like to indulge myself in it’s December. Those long dark evenings really do call for decadent scents, flickering candlelight and sumptuous bubble baths. With that in mind You Beauty Discovery brought their subscribers a short-list packed full of luxurious beauty products, guaranteed to deliver a little sparkle to these cold winter months.

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.

November’s You Beauty Discovery box arrived last week and I was very excited to get stuck in and try out my beauty treats. As usual it had been a tough choice but I managed to whittle down the shortlist and choose two products, both of which this time were brands I knew and loved. So let’s take a look.

So without further ado let’s take a peek at my choices this month.

You Beauty Discovery – July 2015 Review

You Beauty Discovery is a lovely little beauty box concept whereby you chose two items from a monthly shortlist and these are sent to you together with a handful of other treats. For £6.95 this may be the cheapest subscription box but it still manages to punch well above its weight, delivering some great value boxes.

This month’s theme is You Travel and features some great beauty products for travel, but even if you’re staying home there’s something for to enjoy. Whilst this month’s shortlist didn’t quite set my pulse racing there were some items that piqued my interest and I had to try, so now that my box is here let’s take a peek inside!

You Beauty Discovery – May 2015 Review

In addition to their recent Limited Edition box, which I reviewed here, You Beauty Discovery also teamed up with the CEW Awards to bring us a stellar shortlist for the May subscriber box.

The CEW Awards celebrate outstanding product innovation and creativity in the beauty industry, and as you’d imagine this month’s selection was really fantastic with a great mix of make-up and skincare, and quite a lot of high-end products too including Too Faced, Benefit, and La Roche-Posay, all selected from the shortlisted and winning brands and products that were recognised at these glittering “Beauty Oscars”. So what did I pick?
