After Birch box last month, I decided to subscribe to You Discovery again. So far I have loved You Discovery and have been subscribed to them long before the blog… which isn’t long as my blog is 3 months old. I received this just today through my post box and was super excited, I love the concept of the brand, I always find myself waking up early on the first day of the month (when they release the 6 monthly products) racing to pick the two products I want before it goes out of stock.
About You Discovery: If you sign up to their subscription box you will pay £6.95 PLUS P&P on the first of every month (which is a bargain!) . Unlike other brands you will find that it has a very different concept, every month they release 6 additional products in which you chose two to add to your box which contains a few products. You are able to pick the products on the 1st of every month at 7am, however, don’t take to long to choose because many of them go out of stock very quickly. After confirming your choices you will have to wait around 6-7 days for them to arrive.
This months box featured brands such as Vichy, The white company, Revlon and Kore. The subscription boxes do come in the same design every month which one of my friends finds a bit boring but I don’t really mind it, its what is inside that matters 😉
Every box comes with scrunched up hay like paper to cushion the products. This month’s options were:
The first product I got was two samples of perfumes from The white company, night and dark. These scents are very strong and feminine. The Day was lighter and fruity than the Night as it contained pomegranate extracts. The Night smells very musky and overpowering, this isn’t my type of scent as I find it too strong and musky.
You also get 2 foundation samples, I like you get 2 samples to find your ideal shade. You can either keep the darker shade for yourself and use it as a contour or give it to a friend 🙂
This was probably the product I was eagerly awaiting to try, I haven’t heard of this product before. The pack contains the:
- Foaming Cleanser – It doesn’t really foam that much but it is quite milky. I have only used it once but it wasn’t strong enough to take off my foundation but is quite moisturising.
- Pearl Revitalising Toner– Warning: Do not spray it near your lips. I like to spray it all around my face however it tingled when I accidentally got it on my lips.
- Pearl Gentle Exfoliator Trio– This exfoliator has a very odd texture almost like cream cheese and there isn’t a lot of exfoliating beads. For me personally I prefer a exfoliator that contains more exfoliating beads.
They are both free from parabens and animal testing. “increase collagen production for a clear, radiant complexion whilst preventing and restoring the signs of ageing and brightening environmentally damaged skin.”
Revlon Colourstay Gel Envy: Topcoat & nailpolish.
And finally, I chose the Revlon nail polishes. It came with the top coat and a nail polish in the shade Checkmate 540. I chose these specifically because my mum has been wanting these and I decided that I might as well start stocking up for christmas now… its not too early right? haha!
This is a great October subscription box, it is truly well worth the £6.95.
