You Beauty Discovery Box - December

The latest edition of my You Beauty Discovery Box has arrived and if you have missed out on any of the other boxes you can see then here -FebruaryMarchAprilMayJuneJulyAugust September  October and November to see the contents. I have to say that I have been impressed with every box I have had!

As with every month so far, there are always a few extra treats inside each box and this month we got:

Yardley Hydrating and Enriching body lotion and I got Energising Peony as my sachet sample.  Said to be a light and easily absorbed body lotion with a quick drying silicone base formula making it perfect for everyday use.  Not sure how much of my body a sachet will cover, but will give it a go.

Christmas Mini bear from Lindt - already eaten as soon as I photographed it and a lovely little extra to have.

Hikers Foot Healer is not something i have heard of before so I was really intrigued.  Said to contain Tapioca Powder to help prevent rubbing from shoes and Borage Oil, Shea Butter and Grape Seed Oil to help nourish and repair the skin at the end of the day!

Then once again there was a huge choice range of products to decide between which you can see HERE and I went for the following:

COLAB London and Rio Dry Shampoo due, both cans are 50ml and have an RRP £1.99 each. Ever since I heard about these dry shampoos by Ruth Crilly from A Model Recommends, I have wanted to try them and when I saw the option with You Beauty, there was no doubt I was going to choose them as an option and I got both versions as part of one choice which is amazing. The samples I got are London which is in the black and silver can and Rio which is I the mint green/Jade and silver can.

The description given for these dry shampoos are "Introducing the new sensation in dry shampoo couture, where an instantly revitalised look comes to you straight from the can".

LONDON, a classic yet contemporary fagrance of bergamot, musk & magnolia.

RIO, a carnival of tropical notes with papaya, pineapple & a heart of cassis.

Wilkinson Sword Intuition Naturals Sensitive Care Razor, which is obviously a full sized product which has an RRP £6.99. Surrounded by a gentle creamy soap with visible ribbons,Wilkinson Sword Intuition Naturals Sensitive Care lathers and moisturises during shaving, leaving your skin naturally healthy looking and noticeably soft.

Whilst there was many other options I could have chosen this month, I did feel spoilt for choice which is always a nice feeling, I think I chose the items I will use the most. You can never have too much dry shampoo needing to be used and you always need to have a razor handy for party season and I've got exactly that.

So for £6.95 I have a box of products worth around £12 which doesn't make it the most expensive box I have ever had, but it is full of products I will use and need - perfect!

  19. A really great selection but I'd of liked to have seen it a little more festive considerimg it's a December box.. Maybe a sparkly polish or something. Great value though and a good shaver always cokes in handy, can't go wrong with Lindt x
