You Beauty discovery Box October

For the past few months I have been getting the You Beauty Discovery Box which you can see February, March, April, May, June, July, August and September with previous box contents. My September box arrived a few days ago and there was a lot of excitement around this box from a Facebook Group that I am a member of because of a lipstick from Illamasqua and I have to say, I managed to get myself one and this is the content of my box.

As with every month so far, there are always a few extra treats inside each box and this month we got:

So the Gold Collagen Forte is said to be a new anti-ageing liquid beauty supplement which contains hydrolsed collegen enriched with a uniqe blend of antioxidents (Q10, Acai berry, pomegranate, lycopene, L-Carnosine and reveratrol) to protext against pxodative stress. Sadly it says Age 40+ on the bottle, which I am not, so I won't be using it.

The second treat is a sachet from Cowshed which is an anti-ageing perfecting night serum. Said to be designed for busy women with busy lives, the innovative serum-in-oil hybrid is bursting with natural active ingredients and essential oils that work wonders on your skin whilst you sleep. I love the sound of this, I just wish there was a bigger sachet to be able to really give it a good try.

Handbag Hereos is the theme of this months box and it covers everything from hair, nails, skin, makeup and fragrance. The choices this month was between:

  • Wild About Beauty eyeshadow
  • Spiezia Organic Facial Cleanser 
  • Paul Mitchell® Fast Form® 
  • Murad’s AHA/BHA Exfoliating Cleanser 
  • MeMeMe Cherub Blush
  • Melvita Youthful Day Cream
  • Lalique Nilang Fragrance
  • Illamasqua Glamore Lipstick
  • Crystal Clear Intense Anti-Ageing Serum
  • Crabtree & Evelyn Nail Lacquer
I decided to choose the Crabtree & Evelyn nail lacquer and the shade I got was Petal Pink. Described as being a fast drying polish, it is said to glide on to produce a gorgeous glossy colour. Two coats are needed. This is a full sized nail polish which has an RRP £6.

The second product I chose was a Glamore Lipstick from Illamasqua, this is a full sized lipstick priced at £18.50. I have never owned a product from Illmasqua until now, despite visiting the store in Central London numerous times. The lipstick itself came in shade 'Rosepout' which is a nude shade and it gives a satin finish.

So for a £6.95 subscription, my box has a value of around £25 which is more than double 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.

  1. Love the shade of nailpolish! That's the kind I would choose! Could you not try the Gold Collagen Forte anyway? (Not saying you need it) I just don't agree with all these age based things

  3. Ooooh, such a good value box! Might have to try this out at some point, I love the look of the lip stick, great colour. Reminds me a bit of No7's Classic Rose, but looks a better formula. Excited to see what you think of it in use! xx
