So last week I unsubscribed from Glossybox as to be perfectly honest the novelty has finally worn off, the service just isn’t great. (Post to come.) I’ve been reading reviews about the You Beauty Discovery box for a while and I really liked the idea of choosing the items you want to try, and for a fraction of the price of a Glossybox I couldn’t really argue! I placed my order on Tuesday night and it arrived only three days later, much to my excitement.
You get a little booklet telling you about every product that you could have chosen, this is especially useful if you wanted another of the products available but didn’t order in time, it means you can purchase it for yourself and there might even be a discount code!
What enticed me to sign up initially was the offer of an Illamasqua lipstick for only £6.95 and also the other products. The Illamasqua lipstick is in the shade Sangers which is a matte blood red, this claims to last all night which I do hope to try soon as the colour is gorgeous. (Think Taylor Swift-esque!) I also picked the STYL Instant Gel Nail Wraps as they are red, my favourite colour. When it comes to my nails I am so impatient, base coat, top coat, so much time, and it usually ends up smudging! So hopefully these instant nail wraps will be able to fix my patience issues when it comes to my nails. Every box then also came with a Nakd bar, mine was the Berry Delight, and also minis of the Dove Youthful Vitality Shampoo and Conditioner.
I’m not going to lie, switching to a beauty box where you get to pick two of the items is perfect for me as I can control how many makeup items I want and I’m really looking forward to next months box! If you’re new to beauty boxes I’d say try this one first, it’s cheaper and thoroughly more exciting than Glossybox! Have you fallen out of love with Glossybox too or have you recently joined You Beauty Discovery like me? I’d love to know!
