You Beauty Discovery Box - September Edition

Today is day 2 of my week long look at Beauty Boxes to see what they are like, what kind of content we get, how good they really are value wise and to ask whether or not we need them!

For the past few months I have been getting the You Beauty Discovery Box which you can see February, March, April, May, June, July and August with previous box contents. 


You Beauty Discovery Box - September Edition


This month I had been undecided as to which products I was going to choose because I liked the look and sound of them all. Themed as being the Birthday Box, each subscriber was being give not the usual two extra treats, but three! Those three being:

You Beauty Discovery Box - September Edition


Toni & Guy Volume Plumping Whip which is described as being the ultimate hair treat to give your locks all-day body and bounce from the roots. It is a non-sticky formula which lifts the hair for glamorous, voluptuous volume without any flyaways. This product is worth £7.19.

Two sachets of tea sachets which sounds amazing, a handy sponge for your make-up bag and a voucher for £25 with Hello Fresh.

Again, there is an accompanying magazine which is always nice to read, it gives you some further information about each product.

So now to my choices, this month there was a choice of nine products which included:

  • ROSE & CO. 
  • CHERRY KISS LIP BALM, PEGGY SAGE 
  • NAIL POLISH (Nude COLLECTION), MARSK 
  • RICH LIST, MINERAL EYESHADOW, LOUISE GALVIN 
  • SACRED LOCKS TREATMENT MASQUE, JUSTBE BOTANICALS 
  • HYDRATING SERUM, GAZELLI 
  • TRIPLE YOUTH WITH WHITE OIL DUO, EUCERIN 
  • SUN FLUID MATTIFYING SPF50, EUCERIN 
  • SUN FLUID MATTIFYING SPF30, DANIEL SANDLER 
  • LONG LASTING WATERPROOF EYELINER (AQUA) 
This is what I selected:

You Beauty Discovery Box - September Edition

You Beauty Discovery Box - September Edition

I have been wanting to try products from both of these ranges, specifically the Perricone MD No Foundation, Foundation. Described as being the first advanced anti-aging, multi-tasking translucent foundation with non-chemical SPF 30 protection. With Alpha Lipoic Acid, DMAE, and Vitamin C Ester. Created to keep skin looking dewy and flawless, this multi-purpose foundation provides natural translucent coverage, corrects skin undertones, instantly smoothes fine lines and boosts skin's natural moisture throughout the day, all the while delivering antioxidant benefits. This is a sample size 7.5ml is and said to have a value of around £9.

The second item from Pixie is a Tinted Brilliance Balm and it is described as being 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. I got the shade Pretty Pink and it is very much the pretty pink shade and I am looking forward to trying it out. This is a 1.8 sample size worth around £5.

So for a £6.95 subscription, my box has a value of around £20 which is more than three times the value for money and not a bad box.

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.

  2. I must admit I don't buy beauty boxes, but do think they are a great way of trying new products without having to invest in a full sized product.

  7. This was my first YouBeauty Discovery box and i think I was a little underwhelmed with it, especially seeing as Glossybox seemed to up their game this month & my Lookfantastic box was superb! You can see my post here (it has my other half's opinions too!) - http://brendabusybee.blogspot.se/2014/09/unboxing-youbeauty-discovery-beauty-box.html
