I’ve never tried ‘You Beauty Discovery Box’ before but I decided to give it a go as this month it featured an Illamasqua Lipstick – which I was dying to try out.
This beauty box is an absolute bargain compared to most other beauty boxes as it is £6.95! With free postage! Amazed? I was too.
In this box I received:
Dove Shampoo and Conditioner
Illamasqua Lipstick in Blood Red
Nakd Cocoa Orange Bar
If you don’t know how this box works – basically you pick two items out of a list of around 8 and then they send you those along with some surprise goodies. You fill out a ‘beauty profile’ and they try to match your surprise goodies to the answers you’ve filled out in your beauty profile. So you won’t have to worry about getting a product for example: for oily skin when you have dry skin and so on.
I like being able to pick my own because sometimes with beauty boxes you can end up disappointed with the contents. So at least with this box you know you will enjoy using at least two of the products.
The products I chose was the Astral Moisturiser and the Illamasqua Lipstick.
I originally wanted the vintage company eyelash curlers but they sold out before I had the chance to order them.
So I ordered the Astral Moisturiser instead. I’m always looking for good moisturisers as I have very dry skin. I’ve used this a couple of times and it is good so far. It is quite a small sample but for the price you can’t really complain.
I always like to see hair care products in a beauty box because this is something I rarely pick up because I never know where to start. Dove are such a great brand and I loved trying them out. They make your hair very smooth which I love. I don’t think you would get more than 2/3 washes out of these samples though. But again for the price its good value.
I was shocked that they were offering an Illamasqua lipstick for such a cheap price! I’ve never tried this brand before so I jumped at the chance to give it a go.
I love red lipsticks. I have dozens in slightly different shades.
This colour by Illamasqua is a very deep bright red – I love it!
Although, it is quite drying because its matte – therefore I like to put a gloss over the top when wearing this lipstick.
I think this Illamasqua lipstick retails for around £18.50 – so its a bargain receiving this in a beauty box that cost only £6.95.
Finally, I received a nakd bar. This was definitely hinting to me that I need to start eating well again! I’ve never tried this before but I’ll give it a go! It might be a good replacement for chocolate!
Overall, I like this beauty box and if there’s something I like on offer for future boxes I would certainly buy another.
