You Beauty Box - August 2017

The August You Beauty Box has arrived and this month the theme is 'The Sumptuous Spa Edit' and there was a great list of products to choose from to create your box. Right now, I would love nothing more than a few Spa Treatments and some time to wind down and relax, but having not got that option to hand, I chose some products from an extensive list that can help me to wind down at home.

You Beauty Box - August 2017
The freebie this month is a sachet from Philosophy and it comes in the form of the well known Purity 3-in-1 Cleanser for face and eyes. This is an award-winning, one-step daily facial cleanser that removes makeup, cleanses, tones and lightly hydrates the skin. Working rapidly to dissolve dirt, oil and makeup it also deep clean pores while maintaining the skin's proper moisture levels.

Gentle enough for the eye area and even for the most sensitive skin. For me a sachet of this size (6ml) is never really enough to get a real feel as to whether or not it is a good product, but thankfully from Boots, you can buy a 90ml version (here) for just £8.50 and for me, this would have been a better inclusion.

When choosing three products, I actually struggled to decide whether to have brands that I am well acquainted with or opt for those I know of and have used, but haven't done so for quite some time.  The latter was the winner.


The first product comes from SenSpa and it is a 50ml tube of the Sleep Therapy Bath Soak. Described as being the ultimate bath tool for a deep sleep, it is pack full of natural ingredients which are kind to skin and help to soothe the mind.

Using a combination of organic lavender with an exotic blend of bergamot, patchouli and geranium essential oils this is moisturising bath soak which nourishes and hydrates the skin and leaves you feeling ready for bed and a good nights sleep.

The second product in my box is the Comfort Zone Sublime Skin Essence. This is a new brand and new product that I hadn't tried until now and as I really am liking essences right now, I thought this would be an ideal opportunity to try something know.

Described as being an intensive and concentrated solution that stimulates skin regeneration and youthful appearance to the skin. 

Finally we have the Ultimate Salt Scrub from Sanctuary. Containing sea salt from the renowned Dead Sea and a rich mix of moisturising jojoba, coconut and almond oils, this is referred to as being an 'iconic salt scrub' which leaves your skin perfectly polished and gorgeously moisturised.

The use of salt works to gently exfoliate dead cells and to stimulate and promote renewal, the oils soak into skin leaving it gleaming and exquisitely scented.

So despite this months freebie not being too impressive, I do have three amazing brands with amazing products to try and they do all fit within the Spa theme of the box, now I just need a proper Spa experience. 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.

  8. The Sanctuary's Salt Scrub is amazing. I Rannoch out a few months ago but I definitely need to repurchase.
