You Beauty Discovery Box May 2015



This month's You Beauty Discovery Box celebrates the impending CEW (Cosmetic Executive Women) 2015 Beauty Awards by offering a selection of products from the nominated awards' finalists. With brands including La Roche-Posay, Benefit, Dr Organic, Too Faced and The Body Shop, I had a feeling it would be a popular box, so I made my product choices first thing in the morning for fear of missing out like last month!

I'm so excited about having my hands on the first product - a mini of Too Faced's Better Than Sex Mascara worth £11.40, which is not far off double the cost of the whole box! I've read a lot of good reviews on it and have a a result wanted to try it for ages! Apparently two coats gives curled, luscious, dramatic lashes and three coats equal intense black, oversized, multidimensional lashes. I will report back!

After a little bit of deliberation I opted for The Body Shop Wild Argan Oil Miracle Solid Oil as my second product. I thought this was going to be a lip balm sized product, so I was pleasantly surprised to get such a large tin! It is full size and worth £8.00. This solid oil can be used to treat areas of dry skin and revive lacklustre hair. 

The automatic extras this month are a sachet of the very intriguing Dr Organic Snail Gel and a small vial of the Jimmy Choo Man Eau de Toilette, which will be passed onto my other half. The You Beauty Discovery Box also contains lots of offers and discount codes for the awards nominees, plus 20% off selected fragrance and beauty at Marks and Spencer. 

As always, You Beauty have produced another fabulous box for May. You can purchase one of your own for just £6.95 here

What do you think of this month's You Beauty Discovery Box?
