I discovered this monthly subscription box a few days ago after receiving a (very) disappointing box from Birchbox. I haven't heard much about the You Beauty Discovery boxes, which is odd considering the hype around their beauty advent calendar. For only £6.95 a month you receive two products that you choose from a selection, along with a couple of other goodies thrown in.
I decided to subscribe, and chose the 10ml Becca Shimmering Skin Perfecter and the 30ml Ancienne Ambiance Lavendula Bath and Body Oil. I also received a mini Green and Black's chocolate along with a sample of Flash by Jimmy Choo.
The Becca Shimmering Skin Perfecter has been raved about endlessly in the blogging world, so I'm excited to give this a go. The full sized 50ml bottle retails for £33, making the 10ml sample worth £6.60. I think I'll be using this as a pre-makeup highlighter, applying it to my cheekbones, temples and nose to give the skin a healthy glow.
I've tried the bath salts from Ancienne Ambiance before with Latest in Beauty and loved them, so I thought I'd try out the bath and body oil. It's suitable for all skin types and is supposed to ease muscle pain, soothe headaches and diminish stress. I love bath products, so I think I'll be using this as a soak rather than a massage oil.
I've already had a sample of Jimmy Choo's Flash before but it's a gorgeous fruity floral and I'll definitely be using this up. I also love Green & Black's chocolate so as you can imagine that's already been scoffed. This box definitely feels more Christmassy than other subscription boxes available at the moment.
Have you tried the You Beauty Discovery Boxes? I'd definitely recommend subscribing, especially for the price!
