You Beauty Discovery Box - October and November...

I completely forgot last month to post my You Beauty Discovery Box so thought it would be a good idea to add it to the November box post. I originally got this box for free in September due a discount code and as I liked it so much I decided to keep the subscription going! I think the price of £6.95 is really good compared to other beauty boxes which are normally over £10. The value of the contents in the box is always way above this too which makes it even better. If you didn't know the You Beauty Discovery Box involves you picking two products from a list and you are guaranteed to get those along with a few other little treats too when your box arrives. I love the element of surprise but also knowing that you're getting some products you really want and have chosen yourself! 


With this box I think I made a wrong choice with Gold Collagen. This was me typically not reading properly and realising that it was some sort of anti ageing product and is for women aged 40+, so something I shouldn't be needing for quite a while yet. I am not sure what I am going to do with this yet, I obviously won't be using it and unfortunately will probably go in the bin or in a draw and forgotten about for a long time. It does sound like a good product though for the specific age range, it claims to support healthy looking skin, hair and nails, support skin hydration and elasticity, reduce the appearance of wrinkles and give protection against oxidative damage. The second choice was a much better one but I haven't got round to using it just yet. With us moving and things being a bit all over the place at the minute I just don't know where things are or where to store them! I went for the MeMeMe Cherubs Blush Cheek and Lip Tint. This is something that is supposed to last all day without reapplying which sounds great if it is true. This is one of MeMeMe's best selling products so you can only assume from that, it will be good! The tips for this products are, to smile and place a little on the apple of your cheeks and then blend in an upward motion. You are supposed to start with a little and then build it up until you get your desired colour. I am always very careful that I don't put too much on with any make-up product I use, I would rather put a little on than too much and then be stuck! I will have to be careful with this though as it is just my luck that I will put way too much on no matter how simple the instructions are. Other products I received in the October box include Cowshed Perfecting Night Cream and Spiezia Organics Facial Cleanser.
This month I chose Roques O'Neil Therapie Himalayan Bath Salts. I am so excited to try these, baths are one of my favourite things in the world. Seriously I missed them so much while we lived in Leicester. These bath salts are supposed to calm stress based palpitations, balance energy flow and help combat insomnia. 'Immersing yourself in these salts, envelopes you with a sense of well-being and helps fortify the spirit so you're ready to take on the world again'. I think I now have my insomnia under control but anything that can help is seriously appreciated, and as I have anxiety anything that can help me calm down and relax is perfect so these are going to be great for when I am having a bad day or feeling overly stressed or anxious. I also chose Skin&Tonic Steam Clean. My skin seems to have been going mental over the last week or so, I am not sure what is going on but generally my body has felt strange and I think my hormones are a bit all over the place at the minute. I've heard this can be due to stress and anxiety can make your body do all sorts, mine has experienced so many weird symptoms because of it! I thought that this might help refresh my skin and hopefully clear it up a little bit. This cleansing balm uses 6 therapeutic and organic ingredients which help rejuvenate skin, it has oils which are rich in omega 3 & 6 and Eucalyptus and Spearmint oils. This sounds quite simple, all you do is massage some onto your face/neck and then soak a cotton face cloth in warm water and hold against your skin for 1 minute to steam and soak up all the oils. You then just wash it off and it is also a way of taking off your make-up. I think I will probably use it when I have already removed it all though and really cleanse my face! In this box I also received Aduna Baobab Superfruit Powder and Merumaya Iconic Youth Serum.
