My July You Beauty Discovery box has just landed on my door step, and of course I’m excited as ever! You Beauty Discovery is a monthly beauty subscription service for £6.95 (including P&P). Each month You Beauty open their “short list”, which contains a load of products, you get to pick two products from the list, which you will be sent a long with a couple of extras. This month I wasn’t as impressed with the short list as I have been, but I am actually happy with the items I picked.
The items in the You Beauty July 2014 short list are;
> Tanorganic Self Tan Original
> Tanorganic Oil Arganic Body Oil
> L’oreal Paris Mega Volume Miss Manga Mascara
> L’Occitane En Provence Aromachologie Repairing Shampoo & Conditioner Duo
> Green People Sun Lotion Spf15 With Tan Accelerator
> Dr. Bronner All-one Hemp Lavender Pure-castile Soap
> Archeia Rose Rejuvenating Cream
> Abahna White Grapefruit & May Chang Bath Gel
> Egyptian Magic All Purpose Skin Cream
> Dove Men Care + Pro Moisture Shave Cream
I picked the L’occitane Shampoo & Conditioner Duo along with L’oreal’s Miss Manga Mascara.
“Each formulated with a natural complex of 5 essiential oils (including: angelica, lavendar, geranium, and ylang-ylang), this shampoo and conditioner duo helps repair dry, damaged or colour-treated hair. Strengthening and protecting, it nourishes and helps to restore hair fibers so your hair is let looking and feeling supple, shiny and silky”
I mainly picked this shampoo and conditioner duo because in my eyes that accounts for two products not one from the list, sneaaaaky! I have used L’Occainte before but never even knew they did a hair care line. I was really impressed with the size of these samples (75ml each). I find that the normal 50ml shampoo and conditioner samples are too small for a trip away, but these look perfect sized! I go away at least twice a year, so I store all my sample sized goodies until then, so I can travel lighter. The link for the conditioner is here
“Mega Volume Miss Manga features a 360 degrees flexible cone shaped brush for mega volume on top and bottom. The 360 degree flexible brush enables easy application and mega volume on top, while the conical shape captures the lower lash for mega volume on the bottom. The result… Big Manga eyes”
I chose this product mainly because a girl can never have enough mascaras. I love trying different types as I rarely ever buy the same one in a row. Despite reading some bad reviews on this mascara, I actually really like it. It feels quite ‘wet’ when I first apply it but it dries fairly quickly and gives my lashes added volume
Neither of the extra’s I received this month impressed me, I have had about 5 sachets of the Eygptian Magic cream, and they are all still sat in my samples bag, unopened. I was slightly confused as to why a female orientated beauty box would send a men’s shaving cream, but my dad enjoyed the mini gift all the same.
