YOU Beauty Discovery Box September 2013

This is a brand new beauty box that has just launched in the UK by YOU Beauty Discovery.  They have teamed up with the well known Latest in Beauty to provide a monthly box full of samples for the fantastic price of £6.95 delivered!

You chose two from a shortlist of 6-10 products then YOU Beauty Discovery add a few extras - 2 deluxe beauty samples, a mini YOU magazine, a healthy treat and an accessory will be beautifully packaged and sent to you in one of our gorgeous boxes. 

This is a monthly subscription service that can be cancelled at any time.  In addition to the monthly boxes they will be offering one off limited edition boxes containing 6-12 products with priority being given to existing subscribers.
The box is a lot smaller than other beauty boxes on the market but it's very sturdy and good quality. Plus it's what's on the inside that counts, right!
A perfect size box for the contents!
Pure Gold Collagen Food Supplement 50ml.  A 10 day course costs £35.99 here, making the sample worth £3.60.

Philip Kingsley Elasticizer 40ml.  75ml is currently on sale for £11.25 here, making the sample worth £6.00.

Thalgo Foaming Marine Cleanser 50ml.  150ml costs £20.52 here, making the sample worth £6.84.

Lalique Satine 2ml.  30ml retails for £25.75 here (although has an RRP of £50!) so the sample is worth £1.72.

The Vintage Cosmetic Company Emery Board Full Size.  Retails for £2.00 here.

My selected products were the Elasticizer and the Cleanser.  As I was one of the first to sign up I got the perfume sample as an extra.
Had to share this with you! Look at the perfume sample. what a fab idea.  I usually end up tipping half the sample over me!
The box also contains a mini magazine which has details of all the products from the month and articles on beauty, make-up etc.

I am so glad I got this box, I am made up with it! A complete bargain too!

You can find out more about the company and box plus sign up on their website.


  1. Great stuff! First time I've heard YOU Beauty Discovery ' I need to look if we have this here. :) ' Nice packaging too.

  2. What a great little beauty box, I love the elasticizer.

  3. I'd be interested in hearing what the Thalgo cleanser is like

  4. Can't wait to receive mine! Such great value x

  5. I have to say I know it's not a very exciting product but that nail file is very pretty :)

    1. May not be very exciting, but it is very useful - can't beat a bit of vintage floral :)

  6. I'm not subbed to any boxes at the moment Jo but this one looks really tempting. Love the Elasticizer xx

    1. I've just signed up to this. And to say I'm disappointed is an understatement. The box is no bigger than an A5 piece of paper. I'd chosen my two products. Impressed the hand cream. Generous travel size. The pot of L'Occitane cream I'll be lucky if theres enough to do my nose. Included was also a you beauty discovery 'compact' mirror. And I mean COMPACT. And a bar of 'nakd' raw fruit & nut bar. I'll give it one more month. Then I'll be signing up to another one. Really wish I hadnt bothered with this one now
