You Beauty Box - January 2015

You Beauty Box - January Selections - Makeup Skincare Health
You Beauty Box - January Selections

Today I am going to be sharing with you this months selections for the 'You Beauty Box' and what two products I have decided to get this month.

For those of you who don't know You Beauty is a monthly beauty subscription service. 
Each month you get to choose two products from a selection of health and beauty items; some of these are generous sample sizes and others are full size products and you'll get a few extra goodies as well.  
The products cover a vast range of price points from high end to drug store.
It costs £6.95 including P&P and normally arrives within 5 working days of making your selections.
You receive an email towards the end of the month with what products are available and then all you need to do is log on at the beginning of the following month and choose which products you would like to try.
I suggest making your selections as soon as you can as sometimes items are limited stock and the selections are done on a first come first serve basis.

I love these boxes as they have given me the chance to try products I would never have purchased myself and because of this I have discovered new and exciting products that are now part of my beauty routine.

So onto this months choices.

  • Afyna - Organic Detoxifying Body Lotion (60ml) 
  • Afyna - Organic Detoxifying Body Scrub (60ml) 
  • Burt's Bees - Beeswax Lip Balm (4.25g) 
  • Boutique by Sainsbury's - Nail Varnish: Away with the Fairies (11ml)
  • Boutique by Sainsbury's - Nail varnish: A Rolling Stone Gathers No Moss (11ml) 
  • DHC - Deep Cleansing Oil (30ml) 
  • Elemis - Pro-Collagen Marine Cream (15ml) 
  • Merumaya - Melting Cleansing Balm™ (30ml) & Overnight Recharge Night Cream™ (3ml) 
  • TRESemm√® - Platinum Strength 60 Second Treatment Shot (14ml)

Plus the extra goodies in this box are:

  • 3 Dragonfly Tea bags (4 flavours available: Green Gaucho organic mate tea, Mountain Honeybush organic tea, Swirling Mist organic white tea, Emerald Mountain organic green tea),
  • DOVE Hair – Youthful Vitality Hair BB Cream (5ml)
  • Hello Fresh - £25 OFF voucher card

So many choices makes this difficult for me. I'm such an indecisive person so I spent ages looking up the products to see which ones would be good to try.  I like to read product reviews and blogs on the products to see which ones really work and are worth me picking.

I got two nail varnishes in my December box so I thought I would give those a miss and try some skincare instead.

I ended up deciding onthe DHC - Deep Cleansing Oil' and the 'Afyna - Organic Detoxifying Scrub'. The oil has received really good reviews on Feel Unique and I have never tried a cleansing oil before so I'm intrigued! I am also a huge scrub fan and after reading the Afyna website I decided I'd give this a try.  There aren't many reviews out there for this product but I'm going to take a risk. What have I got to lose!

I'm also looking forward to trying the tea as I am looking for some alternatives to  normal tea and coffee as I have recently removed caffeine from my diet.  Hot water and lemon is getting a little boring so hopefully I'll find a nice alternative in these! 

So there it is.
My picks from the January Box.
I'll let you know what I think of everything once I've given them a try.
