You Beauty Discovery Box

There's a new beauty box on the market but this one is slightly different to the usual GlossyBox or Birchbox so I thought it was worth a mention in case anyone is interested in ordering one.

This new box comes from You Beauty Discovery, the people behind You Magazine (free magazine with the Mail on Sunday). 

This monthly beauty box comes in cheaper than the other boxes at £6.95 a month (inc. P&P) and the unique part about this box is that you choose two samples from a range of 6-10. Then they chuck in a few extras to go with them.

The bit I don't really like about Birchbox/GlossyBox is that you often receive products by unknown brands. I know the point of these is to discover products you wouldn't normally buy but I'm a bit of a brand snob and if I see top end names that I've heard of, I'm more likely to get excited by them!

I'd never heard anything about this box until I noticed a tweet on the first of September and I ended up ordering one straight away. I know I'm going easy on the makeup spending this month but I didn't choose any makeup so that's fine ;)

The choice of samples for this month included Decleor BB Cream, Cowshed Body Butter, Daniel Sandler Waterproof Eyeliner and more. I went for a Shiseido Super Corrective duo of Eyecream and Serum plus a Caudalie Vinoperfect Radiance Serum. They are pretty decent sizes too at 5ml, 9ml and 10ml respectively. 

The extras for this month were a bottle of Pure Gold Collagen, a sample of Lalique perfume and an emery board by The Vintage Cosmetic Company. I'm probably not going to drink the Gold Collagen but I'll certainly give the perfume a try and I'll definitely use the Emery Board. 


I am impressed with this box as it's a good price and at least you are getting something you have chosen plus some extras unlike a random box of crap you may not want!

There are also going to be limited edition boxes available throughout the year so I'm quite excited to hear more about those. 

You can check out the website here if you would like more information.
