You Discovery Box
So far it has been hard to be disappointed with this box especially since it is only £7 including postage. You have to get in quick though to chose what the two main items will be. I have made the mistake far too many times now of not jumping online on the first of the month and then being like DAMN when I see what I could of had. I do like that the items are limited though it kind of makes you feel a bit more exclusive. So this month I jumped on fast and made my choices.
Montagne Jeunesse-Dead Sea Mud mask.
I love face masks and have used this brand before. I haven't tried this one though so am pretty pleased with this and can't wait to give myself a pamper session. Especially when it is described as "Having harvested the oceans nutrient Rich Seaweed and kelp right from the source-The Dead sea Mud is a satisfying boost for thirsty skin to penetrate deep into pores and draw out impurities". If I didn't have to go to work I would be relaxing with this right now.
Expandable Face Cloth
This cute little heart shape expands to be a face cloth which is perfect for taking off the mask after. Made with a super light soft material. Plus you get the fun of watching it expand the first time. Small things amuse me.
The items I chose to receive were:-
Transformulas- Face Contour & Tightening Creme
This luxurious looking creme comes in a 15ml sample. I love the packaging as it is really appealing. Transformulas are known for their anti-ageing skin care products. As I am 31 now I thought it would be good to try this out and see if it makes any difference. I may even let my Mama try some so I can see the difference on different skins and report back to you guys to see if this product is a good buy. I am happy with this choice and looking forward to experimenting with it.
LoReal - Infallible 24H Lip Colour
I actually originally thought this was a lip gloss and there was a choice of two colours. I was tempted to pick both but then what if I hated it eek! So I went for the brighter of the two and was really excited to find that actually it is a lipstick with 24hr staying power! Just what I need I get bored of reapplying all day so this was a perfect choice for me.
This is my favourite You Discovery beauty box yet and you can subscribe to them here.
I think this is my fourth Glossybox now and this one is a bit more expensive but you get a lot more for your money. The box is all surprises which is what I like about it but I guess that can be a dangerous game. Here is this months box.
Yohji Yamamoto - Femme
This is a Eau De Parfume from Selfridges. The full 100ml retails at £69.99 and the sample was a very decent 10ml. So it is not a tiny sample and will last some time giving a better chance to see what it like.
Advertised as a light fruity fragrance it wouldn't be something I would usually pick out but sounds like a perfect day wear.
Nail girls 3 in 1 base, top coat & nail strengthener
Full 15ml sample which usually retails at £13.50- I was going to buy a clear base/top coat anyway so this saved me buying one and gave me a chance to try Nail girls as I haven't tried them before. So this will be a staple for me in my beauty routine.
So Susan Cosmetics- Universal Blush
I usually use soap and glory blush as I find most blushers too much on me This one says that the chemistry reacts with natural pigments of your skin to give a healthy look. We will soon see if this leaves me Rosy red or with a healthy glow. Full sized sample usually priced at £18
Teeez Trend Cosmetics - Beautiful Flat Stiff Brush
For powder and creme eyeshadow application. Usually 19 euros. This is my second brush in a glossybox. I am new to brushes so this is a big help for me. Plus it is so pretty.
Nip + Fab = CC Eye Fix
Another full size sample which retails at £9.95
This cream/concealer is to help with those dark circles. I already use a product like this every single day so this is the perfect choice for me. Mama Kaos loves Nip + Fab products but I am yet to try them so even if I don't like it she will grab it out my hands.
So this box was very practical for me and well worth the fee. You can subscribe here.
