You Beauty Box - The Global Edit

It is beauty box time again and You Beauty has arrived much quicker than I had expected it to. Titled the 'Global Edit' the May box offers a shortlist of beauty and skincare products from around the world but there is something else, they are all previously unfeatured brands and even for me, this month I had a choice of choosing which brands and which products I really wanted to try.

This month the treats come from Gazelli Skincare, a brand I have, until now, never come across. The treat includes three sachets of three different products from the brand. Launching in Urban Retreat which is based inHarrods in 2011 they have a disclaimer which states that their honest, authentic and effective skincare is backed by 40 years of scientific research. A brand such as this should really have more than a few sachets in a beauty box if it wants to reach out because I did find the sachet samples quite pointless.


The first sachet is the Skin Balancing Cleanser which comes with the following description "removes make-up, excess oil and impurities, while thoroughly hydrating with soothing Gazelli White Oil™ to provide immediate relief from tightness and sensitivity. This refreshing and uplifting formula soothes and calms the skin with natural anti-inflammatories and works to promote a brighter complexion and even skin tone". 

The Second Sachet is the Intensive Age Repair Cream claims to have been clinically proven to diminish the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles and improve the skin’s texture. Using powerful hydrating and rich in protective anti-oxidants, this skin-brightening formulation leaves the skin glowing with optimal health, strength and improved elasticity.

The final sachet is the reviving eye cream is formulated with the regenerative Gazelli White Oil™ which is said to accelerate cell renewal and revive the eye contour area, reducing dark circles and targeting puffiness. Adding to that, fine lines are diminished with improved elasticity and skin is left looking firm, bright and youthful.

So having been unimpressed by the 'treats' I had my three chosen products to contend with. One item I have had my eye on (no pun intended) for some time are the Skyn Iceland Hydro Cool Firming Eye Gels which are incredibly cooling on the eye area when applied, so much so it is a real treat to lie back and relax with them on.

It is claimed that these Eye gels work intensively to help firm, de-puff and reduce the premature wrinkling that accompanies a high-adrenaline lifestyle. Well, my lifestyle is hardly high-adrenaline themed, but I am incredibly busy right now with work (outside of blogging) and my eyes are plagued with puffiness and bags through lack of sleep, so I am up for slapping on anything I can right now to sort the issue out.

Next up comes the Skin Yoga Coffee Body Scrub and I hold my hands up and admit to being a huge fan of coffee scrubs and whilst I did give up caffeine 2 years ago, I do still love the smell of it and I now get my fix through using scrubs like this.

I loved this as soon as I used it and not only does it smell just incredible, but after using my skin was so silky soft and smooth and I am really impressed. The sachet is enough for one use and perfect if you are unsure as to whether or not a coffee scrub is for you, if you are not a fan of the smell of coffee then this definitely won't be for you, but both Stephen and I do love them.

The final item in my box is from Indeed Labs and it is the 10balm Soothing Cream - Said to be ideal for irritated and sensitive skin types, the Indeed Labs 10 Balm Soothing Cream combines ground-breaking science and nature to help restore long-lasting comfort. 
You Beauty Box - The Global Edit
Described as being powered by ten effective healing ingredients which include Arnica, Bee Pollen and antioxidant Vitamin E, the cream, which my skin literally drinks, is not only fast-absorbing but it also works to repair and protect. It also delivers intense moisture and hydration to stressed skin to leave you with a soft, calm and deeply nourished complexion.

So despite the treats being a real let down this month, I do have three amazing brands with amazing products that I have wanted to try and now am and have.  The You Beauty Box is one of the best around and for just £8.95 which includes P&P you get to make a choice as to which products you want each month and that way you won't be disappointed.

  15. I've never heard of gazelli before, it would've been nice if they were perhaps travel sized rather than sachets, I can't stand sachets in beauty boxes. However I love the sound of the skyn eye gels! They sound divine x

  16. I used to get this box early last year but I am thinking of starting it again. I got the 10 Balm in a recent PR Package with some other bits from that brand and so far I am loving it.
