f you are a read my blog regularly you will know that I absolutely love a beauty box, I am currently subscribed to 5 – one of which being the You Beauty Discovery Box, and today I’m going to talk about their Short-list for September
This box is slightly different than the others – and a lot cheaper. Every month You Beauty will open their shortlist, which you can pick two items from – although you will need to be quick as often the good picks sell out very quickly! A long with the two items you chose you will also be sent a couple of extra goodies for only £6.95 a month!
Each month the shortlist is released on the first day of the month, so today I thought I would share with you Septembers options, along with the two items I have picked.
Septembers shortlist includes the following items;
> ARK AGE AWARE SKINCARE | BODY BUTTER & SHOWER GEL DUO (30ml each)
> EYEKO | 2 HYDROGEL EYE PATCH SACHETS
> GERMAINE DE CAPUCCINI | THERAPY CREAM & REGENERATING OIL DUO (5ml)
> JOHN FRIEDA | BRUNETTE SHAMPOO & CONDITIONER DUO (50ml each)
> MAVALA | MAVADRY MANICURE FAST DRYING NAIL POLISH FINISH (5ml)
> PERRICONE MD | NO FOUNDATION FOUNDATION (7.5ml)
> PIXI | ENDLESS SILKY EYE PEN (0.8g)
> PIXI | TINTED BRILLIANCE BALM (1.8g)
> SANCTUARY SPA | WHITE LILY & DAMASK ROSE BODY LOTION (75ml)
> WILD ABOUT BEAUTY | NUTRILIPS COLOUR LIPSTICK SPF15 (full size)
As well as the two items you would pick from the list above, You Beauty will send you some extra’s;
> CRABTREE & EVELYN | AFTERNOON & GREEN TEA WITH BLACKBERRY TEABAGS
> HELLO FRESH | £25 OFF VOUCHER
> YOU BEAUTY DISCOVERY | FACE SPONGE
Since its You Beauty Discovery’s first birthday this month, they are also giving members a TONI & GUY HAIR MEET WARDROBE GLAMOUR VOLUME PLUMPING WHIP (90ml). If any of you purchased the Glamour Beauty Edit Box, this was also in there, and I absolutely loved it, you can read my full review of that box HERE.
I personally thought this month’s shortlist was really great, and I struggled to narrow it down to just two products I wanted to chose from. Last month, I wasn’t that keen on the shortlist, although I absolutely loved the bits I did receive, if you fancy reading that review, you can do so HERE
I am a huge fan of lip products, they are possibly my favourite makeup item and my collection is growing very fast, so this month when there was 2 lip options on the menu, I picked both of them.
I was drawn to Wild About Beauty’s NUTRILIPS COLOUR LIPSTICK, mainly because this is a brand I have only just become familiar with after August’s Birchbox (you can read that full review HERE), as I fell in love with their eyeshadow. The description on You Beauty’s site is;
“Perfect summer essential. Wild About Beauty’s beautifully lightweight lipstick will leave your lips with a wash of sheer colour and soft shine finish. With added beneficial ingredients including Wild Mango Butter, Argan Oil and SPF protection this lipstick doubles up as a nourishing and moisturising treatment for lips.”
The other item I chose this month was Pixi’s TINTED BRILLIANCE BALM which sounds really exciting as the shade will look different on different peoples lips – I have seen a lot of products like this but have never tried one. You Beauty’s description of this balm is;
“Packed with lip-loving ingredients, this glossy gel balm protects & hydates lips instantly. After the balm wears off, lips are left tinted with a flattering, personalized hue just for you (colour & intensity depends on pH level of lips). Twist-up crayon requires no sharpening”
As usual, I will be doing a full review of this month’s box when it arrives – so keep an eye out for that!
