Budget Beauty: You Beauty Box - March 2016 review

You Beauty Box - March 2016 review
My You Beauty Box arrived yesterday and it looks like another winner in my humble opinion! Want to take a closer look at what's inside?

The theme this month was 'Best Of British' and so the shortlist featured brands such as The Body Shop, Bee Good, COLAB, Nude Skincare and Amie to name a few. For my box, I chose the following two products:-

Nanshy Marvel 4-in-1 Makeup Blending Sponge (full size, RRP £5.95)
I've reviewed some Nanshy makeup brushes in the past (click here) and I still use them on a regular basis because the quality of them are fantastic. I didn't know that they did a Makeup Blending Sponge so I had to have it as I'm interested to see how it compares to the Beauty Blender and Real Techniques Miracle Complexion Sponge, both of which I love for applying liquid foundation. We shall see! 

The Body Shop British Rose Instant Glow Body Butter (travel size, 50ml, RRP £6)
I haven't used a Body Shop Butter in a long time - I used to buy them all the time a couple of years back, but since getting into blogging, I've tried so many different brands that I just forgot about them to be honest. I liked the sound of this one from their new British Rose line because I adore anything rose-scented, and the roses used in this range are 100% organically grown at an eco-friendly farm in Herefordshire. I've had a quick sniff and it smells gorgeous so I'll be popping this into my travel bag asap.

The You Beauty freebies this month look really good too. Everyone received:-

Charles Worthington Moisture Seal Hair Healer (generous 50ml travel size) and Ooharr Rosie Glow & Dead Sea Cooler Deep Cleansing Face Mask Duo (2 x 15ml sachets, RRP £1.20 each). I haven't heard of the Ooharr brand before, but I'm always up for trying out a new face mask so I look forward to giving these two a whirl.

You Beauty Box is £6.95 per month incl p&p - more info click here.

  1. I love how affordable this box is, and there seem to be some great brands included :)

    1. I think it's one of the cheapest monthly boxes around! They always have a good mix of brands on the shortlist to choose from :) x

  2. I went for the Bee Good eye cream and the Nanshy sponge. It's a lot firmer compared to the Real Techniques sponge which I'm not sure I like so much, but it might just be a case of getting used to it xx

    1. I've just started using the sponge this week and agree! It doesn't seem to blend foundation as easily as the Real Techniques one - hoping it might soften up up a bit after some more wear/washes xx
