You Beauty Box - January 2017

Its a new month so it's that time again where I get to pick what products I want to sample in my You Beauty Box.

If you aren't aware of what the You Beauty Box is it is a subscription service that allows you to choose samples of makeup/skin care products that get delivered to your door with a few extra goodies thrown in too!

I've been a subscriber of this box for a few years now and I believe it is an affordable way to try new products that I would never have even considered trying before.  Some of the products I have tried have now become favorites in my makeup/skincare routines.

As I said above I believe this is affordable and their pricing structure is as follows:

£7.95 = 2 samples
£8.95 = 3 samples
£10.95 = 4 samples

I always go for 2 samples as I find that usually, that is enough for me (although there has been the odd occasion where I wish I could choose more!)

You can change your subscription at any time but once billing has been processed, which is towards the end of each month, you cannot change how many samples you can choose.  So if you log on and see 4 samples you want that month but you've only chosen the samples membership you can only choose 2 samples.

Anyway onto what you can pick from this month:

 I've heard positive things about Nip+Fab but haven't got around to trying any of their products yet.  This product had a lot of positive reviews and is an affordable high street product.  I can't wait to try it out and see the effects its has on my skin.  If it works as well as the reviews say I could definitely see it becoming part of my skin care routine. Let's hope it lives up to the hype!

Optiat is a new company and I chose to try their product as I like what they are doing.  They are a nature-friendly company who transform used Arabica coffee beans into body scrubs (the go around coffee shops in London to get them!).  I've read that caffeine is good for helping with things like cellulite and I really like what they are doing so I thought I'd give this a go.

What do you think of my picks?
Would you have chosen differently?
