You Beauty Discovery Box - May 2014

14 May 2014

I've come to really enjoy You Beauty. I love how they have a theme every month, and I love waiting excitedly for the new menu to come out, and planning which two items I'm going to choose for my box! This month's theme is the UK CEW Beauty Awards, and the shortlist had plenty of winners to choose from.

First on my list was one of the two Glamglow products that were available on the menu. I've heard a lot of people raving about Glamglow, so I decided that I had to give the Supermud Clearing Treatment a go. I received a 10mg tube which I've worked out (with terrible maths skills so this is only an approximate total!) is worth about £13. I think I'll be able to get quite a few uses out of this, I'm really excited to try it out! 

I really struggled with my second item, I just couldn't choose! I eventually settled on these Burt's Bees face wipes. I've tried Burt's Bees products before and absolutely loved them, especially their lip balms, so I figured I'd try these out. They're not the most expensive item that I could have picked, but I'd rather have things I'll actually use in my box which is the beauty of this service! I received 10 face wipes, which works out as being worth around £1.99. These really do have quite a strong tea scent, but I find it quite refreshing! 

Sample wise, we received a bag of Lizi's granola which found it's way into the husband's tummy before I could photograph it! Granola is not my kind of thing, I'm more of a toast person in the mornings, but it was quite a good sized bag and it seemed to fill Luke up when he got home from work. We also received a sample of Caudalie's Divine Leg Tint. I'm not really sure about this as I usually tend to steer clear of anything that even hints at being fake tan, but it promises to give a lovely glow to post-holiday legs, so I might bust this out after Corfu. The final sample is Charles Worthington's Moisture Seal Hair Healer Leave-In Conditioner. I think this has the potential to be another good post-Corfu treatment, especially after having sea salt and lots of sun on it, my hair might well be in need of a pamper! 

All in all, another great box from You Beauty. Next month's theme is set to be holiday related which is a bit of a shame as I'm off to Corfu on Friday! I'm sure there will be some goodies that will take my fancy though.
