YOU Beauty Box – Sept 2017 Edit (The Last One)

Hi again


I received my September 2017 YOU beauty box (YBB) on Saturday but only getting round to opening it now  – I  was on the Gold Plan (£10.95 a month – chose of 4 items).  However sadly we have been advised that after four years the ‘September Edit’ will be the last YBB shortlist  / box.   YBB has now joined forces with their sister site Latest In Beauty (LIB) but to thank subscribers for their loyalty they are offering a Full Size Paula’s Choice Clinical 1% Retinol Treatment (worth over £50) when they subscribe to the joint LIB/YBB monthly Build Your Own Beauty Box and enter code YBB at the checkout – for more details please see photo below.

However onto what I selected / received in YBB September’s box:


Seahorse Plankton 5 Minute Miracle Mask (60ml) (FULL SIZE) RRP £14.99


States: delivers some serious plumping and firming.  Firm lines and wrinkles are visibly reduced, and skin is stimulated and rejuvenated with a beautiful glow.  Has a lovely creamy consistency and only has a slight fragrance not overpowering which I always prefer with face masks.  Looking forward to trying as love using masks;

Max Factor X False Lash Epic  (13.5ml) (FULL SIZE) RRP £11.99


Nice gold packaging but have so many mascaras to use up have not opened this one yet but description sounds v good – tip is supposed ‘to capture and magnify every detail of every lash for an epic lash fan.  No lash is left unseen’.

This a creamy polish although the granules are quite scratchy on the skin.   Unfortunately this product is definitely not for me as I really dislike the fragrance it smells to me like being at the dentist – smells of the products used for making a ‘mould’ for your crowns or fillings – really off-putting for me and I also feel the granules are just too coarse as well. 

Love to know what you thought of this month’s box and YBB’s decision to join their sister site LIB.  Are you considering subscribing to the LIB Build Your Own Box?

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

Thank you and take care.

Best Wishes Liz x

    Hi, Thank you for this post. I also have been a member for years although I did stop and re start my membership a few times. I do the same with latest in beauty but tend to buy a lot of their collaboration boxes. I was with latest in beauty way back when every month you received packet samples in a tiny box and paid through your mobile phone. It’s odd but I feel sad about this sister sight. Latest in beauty have and are growing as a company so much it’s really fun to keep up with them. I will dip in and out of latest in beauty but really this is my favourite beauty company for value and products. I’ll be a member for my life time and hope that they will be around for many many years. I’ll miss the little box. Have a lovely week, thanks again for this swan song post.

      Susie thank you – my pleasure so glad you enjoyed it. Although wasn’t overly surprised by the news I have similar feelings as yours. Been subscribed for so long so will miss the monthly YBB shortlist. I get a lot of the LIB collaboration boxes as well as such good value and great way to try so many brands/products. Take care and chat soon Liz x💕
