About seven packages arrived for me over the last couple of weeks, a couple of lovely bits of blogger mail and a ridiculous amount of things I’ve bought myself. Included in the bits I bought myself was July’s YouBeauty Box which as always excites me!
This month saw a change in the YouBeauty subscription. There are now three tiers of membership. Bronze stays at £6.95 and allows you to pick 2 items a month, Silver is £8.95 and lets you pick 3 items and finally is Gold which is £10.95 but you get 4 choices. I really like the idea as some months I have wanted more than just the two products and this is the way to make sure you get all the ones you want. Also I’ve noticed that you can also choose some products from previous boxes in an ‘available again’ section, so fear not if you missed out the first time! I decided to up my subscription this month to Silver so I could get three because I love beauty way too much!
My three picks this month were quite easy to choose. First off I went for the no brainer option of the Illamasqua Precision Ink Liquid Liner in Abyss, this alone was worth £20 so I could hardly go wrong with the box. Then I chose the Peach and Mango Carmex Lip Balm. If you read my blog often enough you’ll know I’m always looking for lip balms that actually work as I have very dry skin leading to very dry lips too. Finally I went for the Rodial Stem Cell Superfood Glam Balm Multi, now I think this was from the available again section as it’s not in the little booklet. This again like the Illamasqua liner is worth about £20 so it makes the box well worth its price tag.
After the success of the St.Tropez In Shower Tan in light they finally brought out one in medium for those not as pale as I loved the light one and am really excited to see if this will work for pale skin too, I’m hoping I don’t become an oompa loompa! Also there is a £10 voucher for White Rabbit Skincare which needs no minimum spend. (However, there is nothing under £10 and you do have to pay for shipping.)
Overall it is still one of my favourite boxes on the market. It beats Glossybox very easily but it’s on par with LoveMeBeauty! What boxes do you love, or love to hate?
