You Beauty Discovery Box - August

It's that time of the month for another You Beauty Discovery Box and if you read my blog regularly, you will know that I am a huge fan of this box and think it is one of the best out there. For August, the box is centered about Summer Essentials and the chance to try some of the best summer friendly products.

This month there are two 'Treats' which area sachet of Sienna X Gradual Glowing Tan which is said to give you natural looking, award winning, sunless tan. I really like the sound of the brand but don't think a sachet will give me enough insight into whether or not I would purchase a full sized product. The second treat is an introductory sampler to the book 'The Mortal Instruments: One - City of Bones by Cassandra Clare and it is part of an Urban Fantasy series which is not my thing at all and not something that I will be reading. So I am not too impressed with the 'Treats' this month.

The next two products are the ones that I chose to try from a selection of 8. This month I opted for two products that I had heard a lot about but have never tried.  

StriVectin – Intensive Illuminating Serum. This Serum is a lightweight skin brightening formula that diminishes dull skin, evens skin tone and enhances overall clarity. Its patented NIA-114 technology minimizes the effect of environmental aggressors while encapsulated skin-brightening ingredients target the key causes of discoloration. It is also said that over time, dark spots, age spots and discoloration are less visible for a more even complexion. Skin texture is smoother and more refined with a radiant, youthful glow.  This product has a value of around £19

Ole Henriksen – Truth Serum Collagen Booster. I have used the Ole Henriksen African Red Tea Foaming Cleanser and the Pure Truth Oil, both of which I was really impressed and quite keen to try something else from the range and this caught my attention. The Truth Serum is packed full of antioxidants and Vitamin C which as we know, are vital for the skin at this time of year. Whilst the sun works wonders at supplying us with that all important Vitamin D, it can also dry the skin and damage it too if we don’t look after our skin.  This product has an RRP £18

  9. This is my favourite sub box right now, I also went for the StriVectin, I have the Ole Henrikson one already so opted for the Inika bronzer instead. I don't think much of extras either this month but the menu was spot on

  27. I love such boxes! everything looks great. :)

  28. It's a lovely box. I think though I'd prefer a full book rather than a sample. I've read the book and I enjoyed it, but I wouldn't pick it up to read from a sample as I find that a bit too blatant a sales technique. Love the sound of the Truth Serum Collagen Booster.

  29. Looks like a great box, I keep meaning to try one out but can never decide which one to go for

    ReplyDelete
  30. I chose the Ole serum too and couldn't believe it when I realised it was full size! Such a good value box xx
