My first ever You Beauty Box arrived just last week! Before I show you what was inside, I thought I’d give you all a quick review of the service. I’d like to say here that I’m in no way affiliated with You Magazine or You Beauty Box, so this is just me talking as a regular subscriber.
I’ve had subscription boxes (Birchbox and Glossybox) in the past, but I quickly fell out of love with them once the initial novelty had worn off. While they tried to take into account your basic skin tone, type and hair type, there was little else in the way of customisation, so I kept getting things that I had no interest in. The amount of perfumes and silicone-based hair products that went straight in the bin was bother disappointing and wasteful, so I cancelled my subscriptions.
You Beauty Box works differently. Each month, there are a selection of products available on the website, and you can select 2-4 items (depending on your chosen subscription level) to arrive in your box. In addition, some sample sachets – much less wasteful if you don’t fancy them! – are put in at random, and Gold subscribers (the 4 product per month tier) sometimes get extra treats too. Of course, this takes a lot of the surprise out of it, but it also gets rid of the disappointment that comes with getting a dud box. This is a welcome trade-off for me personally!
The options are as follows:
- 2 products per month + samples: £6.95
- 3 products per month + samples: £8.95
- 4 products per month + samples + bonus treats: £10.95
Postage is included in the price, and you can cancel at any time. This is the most affordable beauty subscription box that I know of, and the level of customisation suits me down to the ground!
There is also the option to purchase limited edition, themed boxes. These are open to both subscribers and non-subscribers, but non-subscribers do have to pay a postage charge of £4.95.
Based on my initial experience with the service and my first box, I would absolutely recommend this beauty box to anyone, and especially to people looking for more choice in the items they receive each month. It’s excellent value for money, and a great way to discover and try out new beauty products.
Look out for my review of the May You Beauty Box, which
will be up tomorrow! you can find here!
