You Beauty Boxes Review – Feb & March
Not a buy one get one free I’m afraid! but a 2 in 1 post of the You Beauty Boxes I have recently received.
As you know I subscribe to You Beauty Box as a Silver Member (£8.95 per month). To be honest some months are better than others, (January was such a disappointment I didn’t even write a post ?) however one of the things I still really like about the You Boxes opposed to some of the others (i.e. Birchbox – been there, done that) is you get to choose a couple of the products yourself. Personally I always go first for skincare, then hair, make up last.
Pleased to report that after a blip in January the boxes are back on track – see below
I haven’t had a chance to try all of the goodies yet, however I have started my Argan Moroccan Rose Super Repair Hand & Nail Cream which is rather lovely. I love anything pink plus it makes sense that a hand cream should include ingredients to benefit your nails. I am all about the nails when I apply my cream, I massage it into my cuticles as I feel this helps my nails to grow. Delicately fragranced, not overpowering this is a full size product, available online and in Waitrose if you are in the UK.
The Oskia one has a butter like texture and in the pot it is a soft salmon pink colour, but as you ‘butter’ your face it turns white. Instructions say leave on for 10 – 20 mins, it started to feel quite sticky but I left it on for a good 20 mins, maybe more. You then add a little water and massage it around a bit, it will go white again lastly rinse off with water. It was very pleasant to use, I have read about how wonderful the smell is but to be honest, to me, it didn’t really smell of anything much. There is enough in this sample size for a good 5 or so treatments, it is packed with exfoliating ingredients so should pep up your skin, certainly left mine looking fresher.
Sukin are Australia’s best selling natural skin care brand, certified as 100% Carbon Neutral ? Cruelty Free ? and Vegan ? This is a full size product, called Super Greens, this detoxifying mask includes kale, spirulina and parsley. I painted this on using my FAB Tropic Skincare spatula, and let it dry which took about 30 mins. At the time I had a few breakouts on my chin 🙁 so I gave them a dose of Super Greens. Good size going to last for ages, as long as I screw the lid on tight. Buy in the UK @ Look Fantastic
