So I have finally succumbed to the allure of the monthly beauty box! Specifically the new ‘You Beauty Discovery Box’
The box contains: Green People Age Defy+ Line Eraser Lip & Eye, Crabtree & Evelyn GARDENERS Hand Therapy, Nakd ‘Berry Delight’ Bar and a pocket Mirror.
The theme for the October Box is ‘Handbag Heroes’.
What is good about this beauty box over others is the subscribers ability to choose the products in the box. Subscribers get to choose two products each month from an extensive list of amazing products. Each month is a different theme and it only costs £6.95 per month including post and packaging. The box also contains a couple of other items chosen by the ‘You’ Beauty Team.
The products I chose this month included:
Green People Age Defy + Line Eraser Lip & Eye
I have been using the Green People Age Defy + Line Eraser around my eyes for the last week and I am really impressed with its ability to tighten the skin around the eye area, it claims to firm the eye area within 15 minutes of application and I think it does. It contains ‘Sea Holly Stem Cells’ which helps to increase hydration, and it does seem to make a difference by plumping up the skin around the eye area. The eye serum is a light thin gel consistency too, so it doesn’t feel too heavy around the eye area. The full size (10ml) product retails at £18.95 on www.greenpeople.co.uk
Crabtree & Evelyn GARDENERS Hand Therapy.
I have the driest hands ever! It takes a really good hand cream to make a difference to my skin. This one does seem to soften them well and keeps hands soft/moisturised for several hours. However, I am not that keen on the fragrance, it’s a bit too ‘herby’ for my liking ( The fragrance is a combination of Green Clover, Lavender, Sage, Rosemary and Thyme.) That aside, it is a really good hand cream for dry skin and does soften rough skin really well. It currently retails at £20 for a 200ml pump dispenser.

The box also contained a yummy Berry flavoured ‘Nakd’ bar which is now long gone! They are delicious, healthy snacks which contain nothing ‘bad’ just pressed fruit and nuts.
I am now eagerly awaiting to find out what I can choose from for the November box!
