You Beauty Box: May 2017 Unboxing and First Impressions

Hello! Here I am with a look into what I received in the May edition of the You Beauty Box. I was very excited when it arrived! It’s like getting a present with the postie.

To find out more about the You Beauty Box and how it works, you can read my initial review of the service, or check out their website.

The items I chose for my first ever You Beauty Box were:

  • Cetaphil Gentle Cleanser (236ml): I heard good things about this cleanser while doing a lot of research when I was first getting really into skincare, so I’m glad to have the opportunity to try it out before I go on to the next tube of my go-to CosRX Good Morning Gel.
  • Merci Handy Cleansing Hand Gel (30ml): From what I can see this has been in a few different subscription boxes lately. I’m quite picky about scents and haven’t managed to find a hand sanitiser that I don’t hate. I was hoping for the vanilla scent, which I got, and I really like it! It’s the kind of thing that’s always useful to have in your bag/car/desk.
  • Skyn Iceland Hydro Cool Firming Eye Gels: I’m going to be trying these tonight and I’m really looking forward to relaxing with them. My eyes have been so tired lately so I’m hoping these will offer some well needed refreshment!
  • Indeed Labs 10 Balm Smoothing Cream: This I tried out last night and this morning and it’s a lovely cream, and definitely does have that smoothing effect that is advertised. I will do a full review of this soon!

I also received some foil samples and £5 off voucher from Gazelli Skincare. While I really enjoy trying out samples of different products, I won’t be buying any of these because they are just so expensive for the full size. I feel like there are plenty of effective skincare options at much more affordable prices.

Because I am a gold subscriber (the 4 product tier for £10.95), I also received a BellaPierre lipstick in the lovely pink shade ‘Catwalk’, which I think is a gorgeous shade for spring that will work well for any occasion.

I’m very pleased with my first box, and so glad that I decided to give it a try. I’m very much looking forward to picking out my treats again on the first of next month! Like I said in my review of the You Beauty Box service, I would definitely recommend it!

Have you tried any subscription boxes? Were you satisfied with the items you got, and which were your favourites?

    I’m not currently subscribed to any subscription boxes, however, it seems like a fun unexpectedly expected gift (if that makes sense). It’s like getting a present every month!

    It looks like you got some lovely goodies! Enjoy!

      Thanks! It is really nice having the box arrive. Just chosen my goodies for June so I’m looking forward to the box arriving!

    I love the idea of being able to choose treats relevent to you in your box rather than ending up with items that aren’t going to be used, possibly ending up going to waste. That lipstick shade looks absolutely gorgeous & I’m liking the sound of that Indeed Labs 10balm smoothing cream :).

      I do definitely prefer it to the random boxes! Just chosen my items for the June box so I’m looking forward to them next week!

    Aaah we chose almost all the same things last month! I tried those eye patches and boy did I feel silly but they were indeed cooling!

      They were so cooling and soothing – I just wished the were moisturising as well like some others I’ve tried!
