Despite ordering my You Beauty Discovery Box on the 1st of this month, it's only recently arrived so this is a somewhat later than anticipated review! Nevertheless, I'm really happy again with the choices that I made for this box.
October's You Beauty Discovery Box has a 'Perfectly Polished' theme so there are some good premium brands making an appearance on the shortlist this month. From the menu, I chose these:-
- Scentered Stress Less Therapy Balm (full size, £14.95). If you read my review of the Naturisimo De-Stress and Unwind Discovery Box earlier this week (post here), you'll have no doubt seen that this balm was featured in that too, but I couldn't resist the chance to pick up a back-up at this price! I love these chunky balm sticks; they smell amazing and definitely live up to their name. I also have the Sleep Well one too and it's brilliant. You just apply your chosen balm to your pulse points, breathe in and feel instantly relaxed. Bliss.
- Elemental Herbology Sample Duo - Cell Food Radiance and Vitality Serum & Cell Plumping Hydrator (5ml & 15ml). I'm a big fan of Elemental Herbology but they are a pricey brand so I knew I had to pick up these samples when I saw them on the shortlist. I've enjoyed using the Cell Food serum in the past (reviewed here) and I've been wanting to try out their Cell Plumping Hydrator for ages so this duo worked out very well for me! Both of these will be perfect to use in Winter.
YBD also included the following samples:-
- 2 x 1ml sachets of Vichy Dermablend Fluid Corrective Foundation in 15 Opal and 25 Nude. I've heard good things about this foundation via the blogosphere, though I think my shade might possibly fall between these two so I'm likely to having a little mixing session going on when I try them out!
- 2 x sample vials of The White Company Day and Night Eau de Toilettes - I've had a quick sniff of these and they smell quite nice.
