Upon seeing the options for this month's You Beauty Discovery Box, I felt a little disappointed, and after receiving it, I'm still in two minds! As always each box costs £6.95 each including P&P, and with that you pick two items you'd like to try, as well as a couple extras they throw into each box. With this one I got a Montagne Jeunesse Dead Sea Mud Spa mask which I'm looking forward to trying, and a cute heart expandable face cloth which I'll be keeping for next week's little holiday away!
Rituals... Zensation Organic Rice Milk & Cherry Blossom Foaming Shower Gel:
So, this is my highlight of the box. This was the only thing from the options ( see them all here ) that I knew I really wanted to get, and it hasn't disappointed. I've never tried anything from Rituals, but I've heard really wonderful things. The scent of this is just absolutely beautiful, I love anything Cherry Blossom so this is a big hit with me. It foams up really nicely too, so a little goes a long way. These are availble through the Rituals website for £4.
L'Oreal Paris Colour Infallible Lipstick in Timeless Rose:
Unfortunately, this is where the box falls flat for me. In hindsight I should probably have picked the Cowshed Body Butter or even the hand cream or hair treatment, but I hadn't heard of either of those brands so didn't really know if they'd be good or not. This is a 2-in-1 lip colour, with the idea you apply the gloss first, leave it to dry, then add on the balm afterwards, meaning it creates a long-lasting but hydrating colour. The colour is quite pretty, although there is a little too much glitter in it for me, meaning it just isn't a colour I'd wear usually. Also, the gloss feels very greasy on first application, and then very sticky after it dries, so the balm is a must. This product is £9.99 so obviously makes the box incredibly good value for money, but sadly it just isn't for me.
So overall a bit of a mixed bag this month, but that's just the way it goes sometimes. I've discovered a really beautiful shower gel that I'm really happy about too, plus I'm looking forward to trying out the mask.
Have you tried any of these products?
