You Beauty Discovery Box - December 2015

The December You Beauty Discovery Box is just brilliant.  I had a really hard choice trying to decide what I wanted to try more from the list we are given to choose from, but managed to narrow it down to my allotted two items.  December is all about Winter Wonder Shortlist products and they have been carefully chosen to help restore, rejuvenate and ready yourself for the party season.

As always within the box is a selection of treats and this month we have a sachet of Studio 10 Miracle Effect Priming Serum. Described as being a revolutionary anti-ageing skincare reduces wrinkles instantly and has clinically proven and tested results in just 15 minutes. The supercharged breakthrough formula dramatically improves the signs of ageing - wrinkles, age spots, dark circles, puffiness, dehydration - delivering powerful, real-time visible results that completely redefine the complexion.

The second item is a perfume sample of Narciso Rodriguez, Narciso.  It smells absolutely beautiful and I liked it from the first spritz. it uses top notes of white peony meld with bulgarian rose to compose a heady white floral bouquet that transforms the signature musc into a crystalline yet sensual heart. Enhanced by voluptuous woody accords - black and white cedars and a most elegant vetiver - the eau de toilette is hypnotizing.

When it came to choosing my two items, I had the choice of eight products covering a wide variety of areas such as skincare, makeup, relaxation or bodycare.  I decided to choose two items I have heard of, have seen and have been hankering after for a long, long time.
Pixi Glow Tonic.  I have read so many reviews about this that I cannot wait to try it.  It has become one of the most sought after and internationally revered cult skin treats of the last 2 years and there are seldom few who dislike it.  So what is it? Essentially it is an alcohol-free skin toner is packed with plant extracts & 5% Glycolic acid, and has a triple function:
  • It gently exfoliates the skin, which brightens the complexion and smoothes the texture of the skin
  • It soothes and hydrates the skin, leaving it with a beautiful healthy glow
  • It balances the skin for a flawless finish

In my YBD box this is sample sized, very cute 15ml bottle which is more than enough for a few days to see if there is any reaction.

The second item in my box is from Kiko.  Kiko have become one of my favourite brands to use and the item in question is a long lasting eye shadow stick which is water-resistant with a creamy formula for extremely long lasting, pure, vibrant colour that won’t budge.  These eyeshadow sticks are available in 32 intense shades the creamy formula is easily blendable to help create a smokey eye effect, once set the colour remains radiant.  I have shade 06 and it is a beautiful Golden Brown shade which I absolutely love and have used a lot since it came into my possession.

So there you have my box of treats for this month and all for the bargain price of £6.95 and I think this is an amazing box and it is one I am really happy with. Had I been unable to have these two items as my main choices, I would have been more than happy with anything else that was given.  What do you think?

  19. I use the pixi glow tonic as part of my morning routine, it's a great toner. It's difficult to see if it has any real effect because I guess I can't tell what my face would be like if I wasn't using it. But currently I'm really happy with my skin and its part of my routine so it must be doing something! :)
