You Beauty Box January 2016

The January You Beauty Discovery Box has arrived and it has had a bit of a makeover. No longer called You Beauty Discovery, it is instead called You Beauty Box. I am hoping the changes to come are not too drastic because I like this box the way it was, but we'll see. It currently costs just £6.95 per month and that includes postage and packaging.

Anyway with the makeover, there is no enclosed magazine but the shortlist for January is dedicated to recovering from festive over-indulgence, resuming a best-practice skincare regime and rejuvenating our make-up bag. Everything on the list has been carefully selected with renewal in mind.


As always there are two treats within this box. The first is a sachet of snail gel which is always welcome. I am a huge fan of snail gel and my skin also loves it. The second item is a packet of Perfection Gel Cushions which promise instant relief and comfort for the ball of the foot. I am not too sure I will be needing these in January, they are definitely a more December party time need for me.

My two choices this month are a make up item and a skincare item. There was a great choice to choose from and in the end this is what I chose:

ModelCo. Shine Ultra Lip Gloss - I am not usually a fan of Lipglosses, they are never an item I choose, I never buy them and I never want them. I was drawn to this one within the selection because it is marketed as being non-sticky and for me one thing I dislike about Lipglosses is the sticky feeling. Add to that, this one is pink and it has a mirror, it is quirky enough for me to want to try it.

My second choice was from Bee Good, now I love this brand and I love this 2-in-1 Honey & Propolis Cleanser whch I have already featured on my blog here. Bee Good are a British brand and one that should be championed much more than they currently are. The Cleanser is gentle and effective, it smells amazing and it comes with its own muslin cloth, which is a huge plus point for me. If you have never tried a Bee Good product before, then I definitely think you should.

So there you have my January Box. I think it is a great box and I liked the choices I had to choose from. I am now looking forward with interest to the changes that are being made!

  3. I think £6.95 for a monthly box including postage and packaging is an absolute bargain! I have never heard of or tried snail gel before, would you recommend it? Loving the colour of that lipgloss, perfect shade for Valentine's Day! xxx

  4. £6.95 is a brilliant price! But never mind that, I have a question - I have snail gel here, a big tube and for some reason I'm just a little freaked about putting it on my face. Do you recommend it? How do I get over the, "It's snail goo" feeling?

  9. The products look great. I always used to use the gel pads for when I wore heels when I used to go out! x

  10. The gel cushions seem a bit misplaced. I agree with you, they would have been better in the December box. These boxes are great value though.

  11. I have NEVER even heard of snail gel! Going to have a research now. I love the Bee Good range too, but I echo your feelings on lipglosses - they always feel gross to me!

  12. This looks like a pretty decent box! That Snail Gel sounds interesting!

  13. What IS snail gel?! I'd never heard of it. Bee Good looks like a great brand - I always like to stick to more natural products, so this looks worth a go.

  16. I think these boxes look fab for the price and Snail Gel!? Looks interesting.

  17. I really like the You beauty boxes and have ordered them before. They always have something slightly unusual in them like the Snail Gel and like you I hope they do not increase the price.

  18. I would like to try the Bee Good cleanser. It looks lovely and gentle. The snail get sounds intriguing I must admit.

  22. I love subscription boxes but have only really tried the foodie type ones. The beauty ones look awesome

    ReplyDelete
  23. It must be nice to have subscriptions through the door. I prefer lipglosses to lipstick but they are a bit messy

    ReplyDelete
  24. I've not heard about snail gel before - sounds interesting. Very good price for this box too.

    ReplyDelete
  25. This subscription box sounds like a nice idea. I was particularly interested in the non-sticky lipgloss. I'm terrible with lipgloss it always ends up in my hair.x

    ReplyDelete
  26. OK what is snail gel and I need to get these boxes

    ReplyDelete
  27. Those gel cushions look incredibly handy! Looks like a great little box :)

    ReplyDelete
  28. The gel cushion for shoes is very handy to have. I still haven't tried any snail products.

    ReplyDelete
  29. This looks like a great box, I really like the Dr Organic Snail Gel, and I've recently started using the Bee Good Cleanser and love that, too. I have to agree the gel heel things are more of a party season item, though...

  30. A beauty box for under £7! That is definitely worth a try. Never heard of snail gel - definitely sounds interesting

    ReplyDelete
  31. I am glad I wasn't the only one going "Snail Gel"?? What do you do with it? Looks like a bargain getting so many items for the price.

    ReplyDelete
  32. i dont think i fancy snail gel, having them in the fish tank and watching them eat the junk at the bottems put me off for life!

    ReplyDelete
  33. Off to look up snail gel, I've never heard of that before. Love the look of this box x

    ReplyDelete
  34. Loving the look of the box. Great items.

    ReplyDelete
  35. I hadn't heard of snail gel before! Maybe something to surprise my wife with for our anniversary.

    ReplyDelete
  36. Loving the lip gloss. I do like my pinks and sparkles and this looks fab.

    ReplyDelete
  37. Snail Gel. Blergh. I'm not a fan of prescription boxes. One particular well known one tends to rip off their Irish customers. This one looks really good though. The cream cleanser catches my eye!

    ReplyDelete
  38. a non sticky lip gloss sounds like a misnomer haha! I'd be intrigued to try that
