I have received my new beauty box last week, and this time it took a bit longer than last time, so I got in about 6 working days.
First impressions: a bit light compared to last month.
As you can probably see, I have received a total of nine samples, out of which the smallest ones were the new The White Company fragrances, Day and Night. They both have a good strong smell to begin with, but I found that they fade away within a couple of hours, so I personally would not recommend them.
The other small samples were two different shades of the Vichy Dermablend foundation – shades 25 and 15. Unfortunately both of these are slightly light for me, however I think that in a few months I will be able to use shade 25, as last winter I have used Mac’s foundation and powder in shade NW25 so we shall see about that.
The rest of the products come in two sets and they were both my choice for the month.
The first one, and the one that I actually have been using since getting it, is the Elemental Herbology cell plumping facial hydrator as well as their Radiance and Vitality serum. According to the labels, they help dull and lustre skin and as a big plus they have a zero synthetic fragrance, artificial colour, mineral oils, sulphates, paraben preservatives and animal testing policy. So far they have been doing well to my skin and I tend to use them at night for a more luxurious feeling.
Last but not least, I chose the Kore set, which included a gentle exfoliator, a foaming cleanser and a really nice toner. First of all, I love the fact that the samples are a very decent size, so you can use them more than a couple of times- the toner is 15 ml and the other two are each 10ml.
Also another feature that I really love is that the toner is actually a spray so I’ll give them an extra point for convenience and portability, especially as they come in their own little pouch, so hello travel kit! I have not tried these ones yet but I can tell you that they have a divine, sort of botanical smell, without a strong fragrance. I will definitely reach out for them when I’ll be traveling next.
Did you get the YouBeauty box this month, and if you have, what are your thoughts? Otherwise, what other affordable beauty box would you recommend?
