YOU Beauty Box – October 2016 Review

I received my October 2016 YOU beauty box  selection yesterday   – I  again stayed with the standard subscription this month – £6.95 (including p&p) for two items plus the extras. (please see my previous post here for overview and how to subscribe  and the October shortlist / selection of products post here). I  selected / received the following two products  and extras:


Foreo Day Cleanser (100ml) – FULL SIZE (In Box) = worth £25

States on the information booklet ‘bursting with fruit extracts – it instantly refreshes the skin as it cleanses while the yogurt probiotics moisturise and protect it against daily external aggressions.  The skin is left soft healthy and radiant’.

This is a beautiful creamy peach coloured cleanser and feels so soft on the skin – the fragrance is amazing – it must be the Bergamot, which is described as bringing radiance and refreshes – delighted I selected this product and cannot wait to use it properly – can be used by itself and with a LUNA cleansing device which I am also delighted with, as I received a mini LUNA cleansing device in another beauty box and have not used it yet – so will do a separate review on both when I get a chance to try  them both properly. 

(unfortunately this item not available anymore as currently sold out – that is why I always recommend making your selection as soon after 7am on the 1st of each month if you can as some items can sell out v quickly – thought this might be one of those items as it is worth £25!)

Aromatherapy Associates Revive Body Gel (200ml) – FULL SIZE = worth £35 

my second choice

States on the information booklet ‘experience the refreshing and invigorating powers of grapefruit, rosemary and juniper to even out skin tome and texture to maintain a healthy micro circulation – massage into your skin each day focusing on areas of concern.

Comes in a tube, has a gel consistency and a spa aroma, definitely a ‘Revive’ citrus fragrance and although looking forward to trying, the fragrance is pretty strong so not sure if this would put me off purchasing in the future even if I enjoyed using this product – but I will let you know on a separate review when I get a chance to try. 

Plus the extras included in this month’s box were two 7th Heaven masques, glove/hand and sock/foot masques and a £25 Off your first box card.

Over the moon with this months box, even though no makeup items,  really looking forward to trying both the products which are both full size items and together worth £60 (some online sites you may get them cheaper) and with the inclusion of the two masques where can you get better value at the moment and all for £6.95.

Therefore as always I would definitely recommend trying the YOU beauty box if you can because of the value of products / cost of box – subscriptions start at £6.95, especially if you never have subscribed received a beauty box before as at this price, one of the cheapest around at the moment, it is definitely worth getting, if you can.   However as always, please remember if you are interested in specific products you need to make your choice as early as possible as some products may sell out quickly (as has happened this month already).

If you are already subscribed would love to know what you thought of the selection of products this month and also love to know if you are considering subscribing.

Also if you are not already a follower would love you to follow my blog too – would mean a lot.

Thank you – enjoy the rest of the weekend and take care.

Best Wishes Liz x

    Tried the aromatherapy Gel last night.. Smell is quite strong.. However it is similar to aromatherapy treatments I have had in spas… after approx an hour I could only sense my usual body lotion which I had used on the rest of my skin.. So that strong aroma dissipates fairly soon. This morning I can only sense my body lotion.. Too soon to see if it has had any affect on the look of my skin… Enjoying your Blog.. xXx
