I received my May 2016 YOU beauty box yesterday – I am still on the Gold Plan (£10.95 a month – chose of 4 items) but subscriptions start at £6.95 (including p&p) for two items plus the extras. (please see my previous post here for overview, how to subscribe and the May shortlist / selection of products here). I selected / received the following four products and extras:
Cetaphil Gentle Skin Cleanser (236ml) (FULL SIZE) = (available from number of stores at different prices but Superdrug currently selling for £5.99)
States non comedogenic fragrance free and soap free.
Have heard a lot about this product (also received a free sample of it recently), has a light lotion consistency does cleanse the skin well with no irritation but need to use for a longer period to see how good it actually is.
Indeed Laboratories 10balm Soothing Cream (30ml) (FULL SIZE) RRP £19.99 (however currently available at Boots for £13.33)
States ‘an intensive cream that helps to soothe and repair skin using a unique blend of nature’s 10 most powerful healing ingredients’.
Has a light cream consistency and although states fragrance free, can find a v light ‘medical’ type fragrance, still looking forward to using but not sure if fragrance would put me off slightly.
Maskorea Instant Glow Sheet Mask (25g) – 1 Mask = RRP £7.99
Gold Members also received a full size lipstick from Bellapierre (worth £20.00) this month – I received the colour catwalk which is a beautiful dark rose pink colour and although I already have it I do not mind receiving another one as love this beautiful creamy lipstick – this is also the main reason why I remained with the Gold membership this month.
Although I personally was a bit disappointed with the product selection this month as no makeup items included (except for the free lipstick for gold members), I still am looking forward to trying all the products and with the inclusion of the additional items and free gift, absolutely fantastic value as got all for just £10.95.
I would definitely recommend trying the YOU beauty box if you can because of the value of products / cost of box, with subscriptions starting at £6.95, one of the cheapest beauty boxes around at the moment and 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.
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.
Enjoy the remainder of the weekend.
Thank you and take care.
