Hi guys! Yesterday was one of those days that I get all excited about. It’s that time of the month again. No! I’m not talking about escaping another month without being preggers again, no it’s that time when a delivery man comes with a little package just for me.
I’m a bit of a sucker for a good old beauty box, I’ve tried plenty of them in the past. That’s probably how I’ve ended up with crap loads of black eyeliners. It seems to be the generic easy thing to include. When It comes to beauty boxes this is usually my tell, one to many black eyeliners and I’m bored. That’s probably why I’m a bit of a beauty box tart, if I’m tired of one particular subscription, I’ll jump ship and switch to another. That is how for now, my subscription box of choice, is the YouBeauty discovery box. This is priced at a very reasonable £7.99 a month including shipping fees.
This particular subscription service works a little bit different to some of the alternatives out there. Each month a menu is provided that you choose two items from, you will then receive a few extra little promotional treats. This usually includes a food item and a small beauty related sample.
The April box has been themed organic and natural. As the theme suggests features products that are all from natural ingredients. To see the full menu range you can have a look here.
My choices though were;
Our tiny bees lavender hand balm & beeswax lip balm duo – worth £11.90
I’m really excited to try out the lavender hand balm. I love anything to do with honey and beeswax so I’m hoping this works a treat. It’s also one of my favourite fragrances, lavender. I know some people think that’s a bit of an old lady smell but I find it really soothing.
I don’t actually need any lip balm at the moment but its in such a cute tin and was included with this pick.
Scentered sleep well therapy balm £14.50
This product I’m looking forward to using. Most of the time I do get a goods nights sleep but on the odd occasion that I’m stressing and can’t sleep I turn to lavender scented products, usually in the form of pillow spray. This though is a bit different as you can apply it to your temples and wrists.
As well as the typically relaxing lavender scent it also includes chamomile, palmarosa, ylang ylang and ho wood.
The extra goodies included this month were a 15g sample of linwoods milled flaxseed cocoa and berries, I think I’m going add this to a smoothie.
The other item is a 10ml sample of yours truly organics fix me repairing serum. Im going to have to decant this into a little travel pot as it’s in sachet form.
This is supposed to help with reducing inflammation from blemishes. I’ll be trialling this one this week as I have some post monthly blemish scaring that need some TLC. It will probably feature as part of my take 3 beauty samples this month, so if you want to see how I get on don’t forget to follow so you don’t miss my review.
In total the value of my box was £26.40 without the extra samples. This is such a great deal considering it costs just £7.99 a month. This is great if you are on a budget, but want to try a beauty box subscription.
This is the third month I have had a you beauty subscription and I have to say I’m really enjoying it. The brands included tend to be a bit different to other boxes out there. Im also yet to receive another bloomin eyeliner. Though as I get to choose what’s included it will be my own fault if I do.
Have you tried you beauty discovery box this month? What did you pick?
Bye for now, Katy 🙂
