It’s beauty box time again and YouBeauty this month was a special one as it was Editor’s Picks and the 3rd birthday of the box! I thought I’d show you what I chose!
When deciding what to get this month I was drawn towards the INKA Organic Lip Colour but of course when I got to the site they were no longer available. So in the end I gave in to the sheet mask trend and of course there was some makeup to be found.
Something that wasn’t on the Editor’s Picks but was in the Available Again section was the Lanolips Purse Size 101 Ointment. So many people seem to rave about Lanolips as a brand, especially their lip balms and as I have super dry lips 99% of the time it’s definitely time for me to try it. Then, after hearing Shaaanxo talking about Eyeko in many a video I jumped at the chance to try a new mascara. It is the Eyeko Black Magic Mascara which says it will add ‘drama and curl’ and no one ever says no to those. Then finally the sheet mask, this is from a brand I’ve never heard of before but I love trying new bits. It’s from Erno Laszlo and is the Firmarine Hydrogel Mask, the description says it will firm and improve my skins elasticity. I don’t know if my skin necessarily needs these qualities improving just yet but it’s worth a try regardless.
Now the ‘freebies’ that come each month. First off the Nanoblur sample has bold claims: ’10 years younger in 40 seconds.’ I guess that this is aimed at a slightly more mature consumer as I don’t want to look 7 in 40 seconds as I look younger than my age already. Then is another sachet, this time The Hero Project Hyasoft Moisture Boost. My skin is always in need of a moisture boost so this will be very handy in winter. Finally is the food! I was so happy when I opened the box and there was Propercorn and it was lightly salted. I love popcorn, it’s one of my favourite snacks, especially to eat while writing up posts!
This is still my favourite beauty box when it comes to pricing: £6.95 for two products is not bad really, more so because that sheet mask is worth £14 on its own! I always believe that beauty boxes are the best way to try new products without breaking the bank!
