We’ve both been buying lots of similar things recently so we’re back in the swing of writing double posts, we hope you like them!
Today’s double review is the You Beauty box. Each box is limited edition and you get a choice each month of two products. You also get some products added in for free, and all this comes for just £6.95 delivered to your door – amazing!
This month we both couldn’t resist and signed up mostly because Sasha from Ramblings of a Beauty Bird basically told us to, she is such an enabler!
It was nothing to do with the fact you could get a full size Illamasqua lipstick in a beautiful matte blood red finish for less than half of the normal £18.50 price tag.
Not only that there was also a travel sized version of Dove’s Advanced Hair Series Youthful Vitality Shampoo and Conditioner – perfect for L now she’s travelling a lot with work.
And also a lovely snack of a Nakd bar. We’re big fans of healthy snacks and these are gluten, wheat and dairy free containing only cold pressed fruits and nuts and are normally around 100 calories, they’re also perfect to take around with you in your handbag when you need a boost on the go.
This box was dedicated to the Best of British and came with a card to detail each of the products inside. We both chose the same this month, the Illamasqua lipstick and also the Good Things Manuka Honey Face Mask which L has been lusting after for a while.
We both think this is such good value for £6.95 even without the lipstick. The lipstick is a beautiful bold red that would suit most people and is totally worth the £18.50 price tag for the pigmentation and finish.
Here it is on. The shade that comes in the box is Sangers which is still available to buy. It’s matte but glides on easily doesn’t dry out the lips and literally lasts all day.
The other products in the box are really generous sample sizes which is great as you will get to use them more than once like you would get with a sachet. It definitely seemed too good to be true. It’s a great alternative to more expensive boxes and you get to choose two products each month you want to receive and then get extra ones thrown in or you can cancel for that month.
Have you tried You Beauty box? Do you think £6.95 is a much better price for a beauty box?
Who doesn’t like receiving presents in the post?!
