You Beauty Box - CEW Shortlist September 2017

I feel quite sad writing this post because You Beauty Box has been one of my favourite boxes for years and now it is to be no more.  The Powers that be over at Latest in Beauty have bought the box and it is now all change from here on in.

That aside, the September edition of You Beauty Box has arrived and it is a CEW Awards Edit and the products that make up the shortlist for choosing are all either finalists or winners of the prestigious 2017 CEW Beauty Award.

This months treats features two samples from Weleda and Aussie Haircare. I adore the scent of Aussie Haircare but my hair really does not get on well with it, infact it leaves me scalp all itchy and my hair greasier than before I washed it.  That aside, this 3 Minute Miracle Reconstructor Deep Treatment Sachet is formulated with Australian Balm Mint extract, smoothes rough cuticles and helps restore manageability and adds shine.  Jardin de Vie Grenade from Weleda smells just incredible. If you like a fragrance which is both fruity and sweet fthen this is one for you. Weleda use only the finest essential oils for this fragrance and it is said to have been inspired by their pomegranate-based skincare range. Opening up with the exotic notes of Orange and Davana fruit, there is also a slight floral hint from Neroli. Using Vanilla as a base note, gives the sweetness, but it isn't too heavy.

Again this month I was to choose three products from a really long list of options within Makeup, Skincare, Bodycare and Haircare, from which there was brands such as Benefit, St Tropez, Bioderma, Dr Organic, This Works and Yes Too. 

Beauty Kitchen Seahorse Plankton 5 Minute Miracle Mask - This mask is a 100% natural multi-action miracle mask.

Using a combination of Vitamin and antioxidant-rich wild rosehip seed oil, this multi-purpose beauty has many uses and some of them include being an Exfoliating Cleanser, Intense Moisture Boost, Balancing facial Mask, A nurturing lip balm and as a nourishing nail balm. I love how it smells and I love how it feels on the skin.

Max Factor False Lash Epic Mascara - You can guarantee that if I have an option for a mascara in a beauty box, I am ticking that option.  For this box, the Max Factor Lash Epic Mascara is the product.

Described as having a zoom-action tip, this mascara is said to capture and magnify every detail of every lash for an Epic Lash Fan.  I love that this brush has been designed to capture every lash and coat them, without having to work extra hard to capture the lashes in the far corner of each eye.

I absolutely love this box and am delighted with the choices that I made. I got a nice variety of products and until now, I have never tried any of them.  For £8.95 I got a box worth around £35 which is great value for money.

Whilst I am sad to see the end of this box as I have enjoyed it for the last few years, the latest box from Latest In Beauty has been given a rave review over on Allurelavie and if this is a taste of things to come, then I am quite excited as there are some amazing brands.
