The New Subscription Box: You Beauty Discovery Box Review June and July

Last month I decided to re open my letter box to a few beauty boxes. The You Beauty discovery box is totally new to me and appealed straight away at only £6.95 per box including postage. I believe every Mummy needs some form of treat and beauty boxes are definitely my guilty pleasure. Like all the beauty subscription services my samples were presented in a sturdy re-usable box wrapped in shredded tissue paper. Inside the box you receive at least four sample products. Two chosen by yourself on the 1st of the month and the others a surprise. It a best of both worlds concept, knowing there is two products for £6.95 on there way that you have hand picked is a lot easier to swallow than receiving a box of mystery products you will never use for £12.95. Listed below is the products I chose and received in June and July.

You Beauty Discovery Box June

L'Oreal Paris Infallible 24H Lip Colour (Chosen)
What the book says: A 24Hr colour, hydration and comfort for your lips. Perfect lipstick that doesn't stain your champagne glass.
  • Flawless Fushia

  • £9.99 From Boots

Urban Veda Daily Purifying Facial Wash (Chosen)
What the book says: Naturally formulated to cleanse and purify. Help's to treat blackheads, excess sebum and clear toxins. 

Montagne Jeunesse Dead Sea Mud Mask
What the book says: Breath life back into skin with an intensely invigorating and revitalising mask. A satisfying boost for thirsty skin to penetrate deep into pores and remove impurities. 

Expandable Face Cloth
What the book says: A unique, soft and expandable facial cloth. Great for removing make-up, exfoliators and masks.
  • Full size received
  • No price available. A YBD special product. 
Overall I think it was a great first box with my first choice of product being more than the box total. I have used all the items sent and have loved trying them out. Total box value: approximately £12.50 (ish)

You Beauty Discovery Box July

Agent Provocateur Fatale Eau De Parfum
What the book says: This new fragrance has dark glamour, seduction and a sensual hint of danger.

Another great box in my eyes. For the small cost of £6.95 I feel you really get what you pay for here. It was a nice surprise to receive a product for the worst half, keeps him sweet while I spend all the pennies on my little indulgences! Total box value: Approximately £29.85 (wow)

Have you tried this box? What do you think of the contents for the small price tag?

Look out for all the beauty box comparisons, Glossybox, You Beauty and Birchbox who will come out top this month.
Much Love
