You Beauty Discovery September 2014 Review

My first subscription both of September arrived on my doorstep yesterday and it was in the form of my You Beauty Discovery Box. Last week I wrote a post on what You Beauty was all about and the items I picked for this month’s box, if you’re interested in that, you can read it HERE.

You Beauty Discovery

September’s You Beauty is definitely my favourite from this year, I am so impressed with the items I received, especially for the price! If you’ve never come across You Beauty before, it’s a monthly subscription box which allows you to pick two items from a menu, which they send out along with some extra goodies for only £6.95 a month. I think that’s an absolute bargain and it’s a great way if you want to get into beauty subscription boxes without forking out for some of the more expensive ones on the market.

You Beauty Discovery Open 2In this month’s box I received;

  • Wild About Beauty | Nutrilips Colour Lipstick
  • Pixi Tinted | Brilliance Balm
  • Toni & Guy | Volume Plumping Whip
  • Crabtree & Evelyn | 2x Teabags
  • Hello Fresh| £25 Off Voucher
  • You Beauty Discovery | Face Sponge


This was the first item I picked this month and the one I was most excited about. I have only recently across Wild About Beauty as a brand, but I really like them already, but their lipsticks aren’t something I had tried. The colour I received in my You Beauty box this month is ‘Bobbie’ which is a lovely brown nude, that is really easy and smooth to apply. I am really impressed with this lipstick, and it’s my new favourite nude lipstick!


This was the second item I chose for this months You Beauty box, as I was really intrigued about a lipstick that is a different colour for everybody – due to the PH level of your lips. I love lip crayons and my collection is really growing – so this is a great addition. On my lips this is quite a bright pink but definitely very wearable. This is a

You Beauty Discovery Toni & GuyTONI & GUY | VOLUME PLUMPING WHIP RRP £7.14

I received one of these in Latest in Beauty’s Glamour Edit (you can read my review HERE) so this is my second pot of the stuff. It’s really good for giving my hair some extra volume as it is quite flat overall, it also gets rid of flyways – which is something I have a big problem with! You Beauty added this full size whip as an extra to their normal boxes as this month was their birthday!


I received two tea bags from Crabtree & Evelyn (who I didn’t even know sold tea bags?)  – Blackberry Green Tea & Afternoon Tea. I’m going to leave this in my cupboard for one of those days where I just fancy something a bit different!


The other two extras that were included this month was a voucher from Hello Fresh and a You Beauty Face Sponge. The £25 voucher is for Hello Fresh which sounds like a great company, although none of their packages are any less than £25 so this is more of an £25 off coupon if you catch my drift… The face sponge is a small makeup sponge, which kind of feels a bit like memory foam, I’m not sure I will get any use out of this – but it was a nice addition to the box.

This month I am really impressed with both the items I have picked, along with You Beauty’s birthday extra of Toni & Guy’s hair whip. You Beauty is only £6.95 including delivery and my lipstick from Wild About Beauty retails at £15 – so over double the price of the box from one item!

What do you think of You Beauty Discovery? Do you subscribe – and if so what were your September picks?
