You Beauty - Beauty Sweethearts Edit

January seemed to drag on and on, so I was so glad when I got the email from You Beauty to alert me to the February box because it meant moving forward and getting closer to Spring. The February box is called the Beauty Sweetheart shortlist and it is an assortment of the latest hair, skin and make-up finds - all of which deliver speedy and noticeable results!

You Beauty - Beauty Sweethearts Edit
Inside this box are two treats and the first is a perfume sample from Jimmy Choo called L'Eau which is said to capture the scent of a delicious thirst-quenching hibiscus flower blended with barks, fruits and vibrant woods, to create a radiant feminine sensuality.

As a scent, it will please those who love fruity florals but with the added musky accent it is just absolutely stunning and I wasn't expecting to like it at all.

Sukin Detoxifying Clay Masque - Sukin is a brand that I am just getting to know and to see this masque in the box was really exciting. This is a clay based masque infused with Kale, Spirulina and Parsley to promote a clean, healthy and glowing complexion. Kale, Spirulina, Parsley and Chlorella offer a super green blend of detoxifying antioxidants and vitamins to promote healthy, youthful skin. Avocado and Baobab lock in moisture while Goji berry encourages a dewy complexion.

Finally, there is a burst of Cranberry which provides an invigorating scent for refreshing the senses. Worth £11.95 you can find it here from Boots.

So impressed with those two treats, I then needed to select three more products and this is what I went for.

Transformulas Lip Volume - This is a product which has me totally intrigued and the description is as follows - A pain-free alternative to cosmetic surgery and collagen. Lip Volume is a clear gel serum that will plump, define and contour your lips, enhancing the moisture and their natural, rosy look with proven, long-lasting results. You can use it up to 3 times a day on its own or under your lipstick and the effects are noticeable immediately with full results after 30 days of treatment.

What's more, as your lips increase in size, the stimulation of your own collagen synthesis will ensure they look absolutely natural!  So, I am intrigued enough to try it out and see what happens and if you feel the same, it is available here from FeelUnique for £29.95.

Sanctuary Foaming Micellar Cleaning Water - I have tried this before as I got in my advent calendar and I really liked it and so much so, I am glad to have it back again. 
You Beauty - Beauty Sweethearts Edit
Described as being as quick as a cleansing wipe but 50% more effective at removing foundation & 46% more effective at removing everyday grime, it uses soothing rose water & nourishing argan oil which when combined with micelles act like magnets to gently lift away make-up & impurities from the skin. Super gentle but incredibly effective at removing make-up & daily grime, skin is left feeling instantly clean, fresh and soothed. A 200ml bottle will cost just £8 and you can find it right here.

Oskia Skincare Renaissance Mask - This mask is again one I have tried but one I absolutely love and am happy to be able to use it again. Described as being a 'Nutri-active Brightening & Resurfacing Mask' it is packed with OSKIA trademark blend of beauty-boosting clinical nutrients and bio-actives such as MSM (Organic Sulphur), Vitamins and Minerals to increase cellular efficiency for a more youthful appearance. Natural Fruit Acids (AHAÉs) including Passion Fruit, Lemon, Grape and Pineapple exfoliates the skin by gently unbinding cells in the top layer of the epidermis to activate renewal.

Papaya Enzymes cleanse the skin thoroughly and remove excess and tired skin cells to clear congested pores. Finally, it is also infused with Lactic Acid which reduces the appearance of fine lines and softens the skin whilst Swiss Garden Cress Liposomes leave the complexion perfectly balanced, even and bright by reducing melanin production. 

Now this mask is a real treat and one that you only need to use as and when you feel your skin needs it and the advice is no more than twice a week. I have found it to be non-irritating on my skin and after use, I just love how my skin feels. A full-size pot of this balm is priced at £49.50 and you can find it here from Cult Beauty.


So there you have the February You Beauty Box and I think there is an interesting mixture of products and I am happy with my choices at £8.95. What do you think?
