You Beauty Box - May 2016 review
My You Beauty box arrived yesterday (hooray for Saturday deliveries!), and this month it's themed around innovative cult beauty products that have caused a stir in the industry.

From the shortlist, I chose the following two products for my box:-

Show Beauty Pure Treatment Oil (full size, RRP £50)
Last month, YB brought us a full size £38 facial oil (which is gorgeous by the way), and this month they've wowed many of us with a full-size hair oil from Show Beauty which retails for a whopping £50 in Harrods. Wowza! Naturally, this sold out pretty fast but I managed to grab one before all the stock was gone and I have to say that I'm very excited to try it out. The bottle itself is so beautiful with its vintage, art deco vibe, and the oil promises to restore tired hair by nourishing, strengthening and adding shine to it. We shall see!

NUXE Huile Prodigieuse (10ml travel size)
I wasn't sure what to pick for my second item as a lot of the other products didn't really appeal to me, or were things that I already own. In the end, I went for this mini NUXE Huile Prodigieuse because I love this multi-purpose dry oil and have used it many times in the past. I currently have a full-size bottle of it, but this mini will be perfect for travelling with. 
You Beauty Box - May 2016 review
As always YB added in some extras in the shape of a £15 Gift Card for Anne Semonin (no minimum spend), a yellow Popband hairtie, and a 2ml sachet sample of Verso Super Facial Serum

Strangely, YB didn't include any 'warnings' as such with the serum, so I just wanted to mention that it does contain a very high-strength retinol 8 so if you have never used retinol before, it's probably best to hold onto it and use some other products that have much lower strengths first! My experience with retinol is that it's best to work your way up to the higher strengths rather than jumping right in at the deep end, ESPECIALLY if you have sensitive skin like I do. Obviously you know your own skin better than me but I just wanted to give readers a little heads up if you weren't aware.

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

  1. I missed out on the Show Beauty Oil but I have always wanted to try the Nuxe oil so went for that instead. My other pick was the Burt's Bees lip balm xx

    1. It sold out so fast - I know a lot of people sadly missed out on it! The Nuxe Oil is fab and I love the Burt's Bees Tinted Lip Balms :) xx
