You Beauty discovery Box - June Edition

For the past few months I have been getting the You Beauty Discovery Box which you can see February,  March , April and May with previous box contents.  This month my fifth box has arrived and I have to admit, this was the first box I wasn't feeling all that bothered about, last months CEW(UK) box was superb and I really struggled to decide which options I wanted, so I wasn't so confident this box would be as good. Then it arrived!

This months box is themed "Beauty Hereos" and when I got my email to let me know my options for selection was now ready, I logged straight in with excitement to make my choices and I wasn't feeling too bothered about any of them, nothing grabbed my interest, but then I decided to pick things I haven't used but would more than likely use, a sort of compromise with myself to try brands ive heard of but don't go out of my way to use.

As I have said before, I love is how the box fits through my letterbox, it is packed really delicately and the box really study

Within the magazine which comes with the box we are told that for June's box they have titled it beauty heroes, those products which stick to their promises and deliver on them and the range features beauty and skincare products. So as a dedicated subscriber, I have been given the opportunity to try some of the following:

Urban Veda Daily Purifying facial wash, Transformulas Face Contour & Tightening Cream, Cowshed Slender Cow Extra Firming Body Butter, Herbacin Hand Cream for Protection and Care, Rituals Zensation Organic Rice Milk & Cherry Blossom Foaming Shower Gel Sensation, Her Haircare 300 Trecento Revitalising Hair Treatment, L'Oreal Infallible 24hr Lip Colour in Timeless Rose or Flawless Fuschia.

Again as with previous boxes, with this subscription you get some extra treats and mine came in the form of an expandable face cloth from YBD and a Montagne Jeunesse Dead Sea Mud Spa Facemask which I cannot wait to try.

So what did I choose?

Urban Veda Daily Purifying Facial Wash which comes in this 20ml tube, perfect for putting in your weekend bag and it is described as follows:

Naturally formulated to cleanse and purify.

In Ayurveda (Indian medicine), Neem is renowned as an excellent antibacterial tonic to help treat blackheads, excess sebum and clear toxins. Neem oil works in synergy with botanical extracts to reduce shine, while naturally astringent herbals & antioxidants help to minimise pores and clear complexion.

I have read quite a few reviews on Urban Veda products and liked the sound of this, so am looking forward to giving it a try.

My second option was the L'Oreal Infallible Lip Colour and I went for Timeless Rose which has an RRP of £9.99 and is described as follows:

L’Oreal Paris Infallible 24H lip Colour in 110 TIMELESS ROSE provides all day colour that lasts up to 24 hours.  A high concentration of pigments combined with Hyaluronic Gel to create an amplified colour that does not fade, bleed or transfer for an unbeatable finish and a renewed feeling of comfort. 3 Lip-Luscious actions:

1. All day long lips feel smooth.
2. All day hydration for endless replenishing comfort.
3. All day just-applied look for colour that does not fade.

I really do like the shade of this, it is so so pretty and I like the balm on the other end, which I wasn't expecting to find, this feels really moisturising when you apply to the lips.

So for a £6.95 subscription, my box has a value of around £14 which is double the cost of what I paid.  I actually do really like this box, all the contents I will use, so for me I think it makes really good value for money.
Next month the attention will be dedicated to Summer Holiday - quite excited already!

What do you think to do this? Do you subscribe to these boxes?  What would you have chosen? If you subscribe, link your post below so I can see what you got.
