Delighted to receive my July 2016 YOU beauty box (http://box.you.co.uk/) today – so many good products this month and therefore more difficult to choose, (please see my first / previous YOU beauty box post for details of how to subscribe and shortlist / selection of products to choose from this month) however I finally selected / received the following two products:
Illamasqua Precision Ink eyeliner in Abyss (black) – 3 ml
FULL SIZE = £20.50
States on information booklet (an information booklet is always included each month): ‘precision ink creates perfect lines with its long-lasting water proof formula – the ultra fine tip also makes a great nail art pen’
My initial thoughts are the eyeliner is highly pigmented , long-lasting and water proof but not sure about the ‘precision’ element as not as smooth a line as I expected but this could be due in part to me comparing it to my normal slightly thicker eyeliner. Cannot wait to try it for some nail art too.
Aethic L’Air Bien Remarkable re-hydration in flight face & hand cream – 30 ml
FULL SIZE RRP = £24.00
States on the information booklet ‘an organic cream packed with goodies including gogi berry, amaranth oil and other natural ingredients to restore the skin and naturally retain moisture’.
It has a thick white cream consistency with a v, v light fragrance, I am intrigued by this product and cannot wait to try.
Plus the extras included in this month’s box are a St Tropez New Gradual Tan in Shower Lotion in Medium (50ml), a £2 off St Tropez coupon and a White Rabbit skincare £10 gift card.
I was over the moon with my box / choices and extras this month – excellent value – this is a box I would definitely recommend trying if you can because of the value of products / cost of box – subscriptions start at £6.95. However always remember if you interested in specific products need to make your choice early as some products sell out pretty quickly as was the case already this month for three of the products.
Thank you for looking – any comments / queries please let me know – would love to know what you chose too if you are already subscribed.
