You Beauty Box - The Best Of British

This months You Beauty Box wasn't one to excite me from the shortlist I am sad to say but I decided to keep my subscription anyway and choose three products I had never used before.  As March has arrived and Spring is just on the horizon, the theme of this months box is Best of British. All of the brands featured this month are flying the flag loud and proud for the thriving British beauty industry.

The treats this month area 35% off no minimum spend with Bagsy Beauty.  Now I love this brand and hope to see more of it in 2017. The second is a sachet from Skinade which is described as being a professional skincare drink that nourishes your skin from the inside. Not too sure what one sachet will show in all honesty.

So on to my selections. There was a lot to choose from this month from brands such as Eyeko Bagsy Lola, Miller Harris, Katherine Daniels, Monu, The Hero Project, The White Company, Button & Wilde, Awake Organics Company, Maddie Alexander and natural world. Many brands I have come across and used and just a few that I hadn't, so this is what I chose.

Awake Organics Aura Clean Deodorant - 100% Non-toxic and Aluminium Free! Aura is a truly Clean Deodorant that won’t stop your body’s natural detoxification process. This hydrating blend of organic, antibacterial botanicals melts in effortlessly. Enriched with British Kaolin and Arrowroot to keep you smelling fresh all day long.

There is also the use of Invigorating essential oils of Lavender, Rosemary, Lemongrass and Peppermint which combine in this naturally antibacterial formula. Aura Clean Deodorant cream moisturises and soothes delicate skin, while providing all-day odour protection. This handy travel-size contains up to 21 applications. So this is not an antiperspirant and it doesn't stop perspiration, but I have found the cream formula really interesting to use. It smells lovely and fresh and it takes a bit of getting to used to when applying it. So I am glad I did pick this up.


Maddie Alexander Serene Body WashIndulge your skin with this intensely nourishing and naturally luxurious Serene Body Wash says the description.

An incredibly luxurious body wash, I hold my hands up and admit that the French Lavender scent is the only reason I chose it, I just love it and mixed with geranium you do have quite an awakening scent which is just incredible on the skin. A beautiful range that I hope again to see more of in 2017.

Katherine Daniels Essential Micellar Face and Eye Makeup Remover - This is an award winning product and having heard and read about it, this was the first item I added to my box when making my selection.

Described as not only being 'A dressing table must have' the gorgeous aqueous texture which gently and efficiently removes all traces of eye make-up (even stubborn waterproof mascara) whilst caring for the delicate eye area, thanks to Cornflower Water which is traditionally used to reduce inflammation and irritation of the eyes.  What I like about this is that it does remove the hardest to budge mascara - They're Real I am looking at you! One swipe across the face, with no need to rub or scrub, removes everything in its path.

So that is my March box and whilst it wasn't one I was overly enthralled about, now I have it and have used the contents, I have been pleasantly surprised by how good these brands actually are and it has been great to find new products that I might now have come across before.


So there you have the March 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?

  1. I cancelled my subscription a few months back but have been waiting for a strong shortlist to make me want to resubscibe again, because I do think it's great value for money. Unfortunately, I'm still waiting for a range of products to excite me and this month's didn't either.
