YouBeauty Box - January 2016

It's that time of the month again where I have to remember to remember to log on to the YouBeauty website to  make my picks before the best items run out of stock!

I was lucky this month and remembered to log on early New Year's Day morning as the picks usually come out the first of every month.
However with it being New Year they didn't come out until today (4/1/16) which I can understand!

If you aren't aware of what the YouBeauty box is it's a subscription service similar to Birchbox where you can choose 2 samples (sometimes there are full-size items too) and you get a few extra samples as well for the £6.95 including p&p.

You choose your items from a selection of around 8-10 and they are posted out to you within approx a week to ten days. 
I recommend going on the website as soon as you can to choose your items (the new boxes always start in the 1st of each month) as some may have limited availability and I have missed out on a few products I wanted to try in the past by not checking it early enough.

Anyway onto this months items.

When choosing my items I have a quick Google to look at some reviews to get a sense of what the beauty world thinks of my choice.  If I'm struggling to whittle my choice down to two this can really help me decide.
This month I wasn't really in a skincare kind of mood so I went for the 'Balmi Roseberry Blister Cube' and the 'Lord & Berry Paillettes Eye Pencil Sparkle Black'.
From the tiny bit of research I did the  on the  products I'm optimistic about them.  I think the 'Balmi Roseberry Blister Cube' is a new product but I have heard great things in the past about them.  I've been meaning to try a Balmi product for ages so this will give me the chance to try something different to my EOS Lip Balm (which I love so hopefully it will be just as good!).
The 'Lord & Berry Paillettes Eye Pencil Sparkle Black' get some good reviews on shopping sites so I'm look forward to having that bit of sparkle added to my eyeliner!
I'll let you know in next months post what I think about both the products!

The extra samples this month are the 'Dr Organic Snail Gel' and 'Perfection Gel Cushions'.
I have to admit I don't know if I'll use the snail gel as I don't like the thought of putting something to do with snails on my face!
But I'll definitely give the 'Perfection Gel Cushions' a whirl as my feet kill me after wearing heels for a few hours!

What do you think of my picks?
What would you choose?
