You discovery box - Nov 2013
YouBeauty is a new beauty box on the block. Priced at just £6.95 per month with P&P included, i must admit this box was not calling but more screaming to me. I have had 2 boxes now and i cant say I've been disappointed in the least, in-fact i would say its a steal for this price.
So the box comes every month with a selection of beauty products to which you pick 2 from the list, these then come boxed with 2 more items that everyone receives.
So the contents of my box this month were :
Percy and Reed - Firm session holding hairspray (30ml)
Neo-Stem - Anti accelerated Ageing serum (30ml)
Extras in every box
Montagnue Jeunesse - Body smoothie
Lizi's Granola - Toasted granola
Now i love the fact you can pick and choose your items from 8 picks (this months amount) as naturally no beauty box can cater for all tastes. This beauty box however i feel may have cracked it as they offer you 2 choices of product plus the price is just to be fair unreal. I would happily pay this to get samples maybe some months i don't need but would use in future. As i can honestly say the size of the samples are very generous indeed, so much so you could get at least a months use out of a skincare item. Especially a serum which is targeted to certain points of the face and not all over body use.
I have yet to use the Serum as I'm currently using one for review, so this is in my to use box when i come up empty. I am looking forward to using it as the bottle is very high end within a glass container and stylish in its presentation.
Percy and reed hair products i love and adore so having a chance to trial there hair spray was fabulous for me. I again have a hair system to trial so this will be used when i have completed that and i may use this for travel. As the sample is perfect size for a handbag. Very impressed.
Now the two extras were lovely as i usually use a Montague Jeunesse face mask at times when its treat night to relax. Ive always been impressed and loved there convenient masks which are also affordable. This was a nice change to receive a body smoothie, i look forward to using this.
The lizi's granola i wont lie, it didn't last long and i used this with my yogurt and fruit on three servings. I received the chocolate flavour and it was very chocolatey and added a nice texture and flavour to my morning breakfast. I will be looking this product up as i really would love to purchase more of them to have as a staple to my diet.
So if you are on the hunt for a new beauty box subscription then maybe give the YouBeauty discovery box a try ? I haven't been disappointed and from the feedback off other friends whom have subscribed they haven't either.
Do you subscribe ? What are your thoughts on this beauty box addition ?
