You Beauty Discovery box for August – Review / Unboxing

Time to share my ‘You Beauty’ box with you – This really is the most reasonable box out there with it’s £6.95 price tag, including postage, not to mention the fact that you get a couple of smaller samples plus two bigger items which you get to pick from an exciting list of options.

This month’s theme is quite fitting, being ‘Summer Essentials’ – What more could we need at this time of the year?
And this, rather full, box is what I got. Definitely impressive for the price, a good month indeed.
Ordinarily we only get two smaller samples in the box but this month we got lots. A man and woman pair of scents from Jimmy Choo, a 4 way nail buffer and a FaceD ‘3-Luronics’ sample. A rather impressive selection considering these are the smallest part of this box.
This is the most exciting item in the box, for me. The Eucerin ‘SPF 50+ Sun Fluid – Mattifying Face’ was the top choice for me this month. If you follow me on twitter then you’ll know that I’m a bit crazy over sun protection at the moment and facial sun protection is incredibly important but it’s also difficult to find a good one. Eucerin is a fantastic brand and the fact that this is mattifying really got me interested as most facial SPF will make the skin rather shiny. This is an absolutely perfect item for me.
Next I picked a polish from ‘Peggy Sage’ which was a random shade from the summer collection. As you can see above I got this pinky/coral shade. It’s a beautiful shade but it’s so similar to shades I already have that I wish I’d got something different. I’ve actually seen some beautiful shades from their neutral collection so wish I’d got something from there instead.


The one thing that makes this different from other polishes that I have is the beautiful shimmer that runs through it, it’s such a lovely addition to the shade and definitely makes it even more summery.So, as you can see, this is a rather impressive box and definitely great value for money – A facial spf alone can set you back quite a bit, if you get a good one, definitely worth getting. Looking forward to seeing what’s available in the next box!

    Looks like a great box. I sadly cancelled my subscription as I constantly had issues when it came to ordering on their website 🙁 Raspberrykiss xo

      Oh that's a real shame, maybe try with a different email address? They're fab, once our money is reduced I might be able to keep this one going but I'll miss my others haha xx

    I wouldn't be complaining about that polish, even with a huge amount of similar shades. The added shimmer makes it stand out from the rest xx
