YOU Beauty Discovery Box - November 2013

At just £6.95 inc p&p you receive a well presented compact sized box. Packed with goodies.

I like these boxes, as you can try before you buy, and you get to try items that you would not normally purchase.

Every month, the YOU Beauty Discovery Box is delivered direct to your home, it will contain up to four treats: 2 Editor's favourites items, plus two more products you can pick from their shortlist - which changes each month.

This is my second YOU Beauty discovery box, and at the beginning of the month I receive an email confirming my payment has been processed, and then inviting me to the website to log into my account and choose two items from their shortlist.  

This month I picked:
-Percy & Reed Reassuringly Firm Hold Hairspray 50ml - I picked this, because I love the Percy & Reed Dry Shampoo product, but I have never tried any other products from their range. So I am excited to try this hairspray.
-Murad Osmoyte Tonic 15ml - I picked this because I have tried this brand before, and also had positive results using them, but I have never tried this tonic before, and having extremely dry skin, my skin is going to need all the extra boast I can get this winter.  The tonic comes with a spray which you can mist over your face to replenish and moisturise the skin. I am going to keep this in my handbag.

Editor's favourite items: 
-Sample packet of Lizi's Granola, Pink Apple and Cinnamon -  funny thing is, I have never ever tried granola before, mainly because I didn't like muesli as a kid. But I will definitely give it a go.  You never know, I might actually like it.   
-Montagne Jeunesse Body Smoothie Sachet - I know Motagne Jeunesse for their face masks etc.. but did not realise they did body creams etc.. This body smoothie sounds divine, can't wait to use this.

I was happy with this month's box, and I look forward to trying the products out!  There are quite a few monthly subscription beauty boxes out there now, and over the past couple of years I have tried a few, but with YOU Beauty Discovery Box, this is my favourite so far.  I appreciate that we get to pick 2 products ourselves (but be quick as the picklist items can go out of stock), and you also get the surprise factor with 1 or 2 editor's favourite items that they included in your box.
