August 2016 You Beauty Box

Another month another You Beauty Box. I have to say I wasn't really excited by any of this months choices. But I thought I'd stick with it and use it as a way of trying new things for the grand total of £8.95. It was all skincare this month and although I am getting into it I would love to see more makeup in the box choices. Just give feed my makeup addiction please.

August 2016 You Beauty Box

Bloom & Blossom Rejuvenating Facial Spritz (40ml)

This facial spritz is supposed to be great for conditioning the skin due to containing collagen boosting ingredients as well as aloe vera and lime oil to help with skin tone, wrinkles and dark shadows. It can be used daily or whenever your skin needs a refreshing spritz. This will be great for the warmer weather as it is soo refreshing. It does smell a bit antiseptic though. Kinda reminds me of dettol. It can also be used as a makeup setting spray which I'm excited to try as I don't actually own one yet.

Sönd Revitalising Face Serum (5ml)

This is supposed to be great for dry and sensitive skin. My face always seems to need hydration so this should be perfect and my skin does feel much softer after use. It also claims to help minimise the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Another massive plus is it's fragrance free. The size of this sample will be perfect for chucking in my makeup bag when I go away which I seem to do a lot.
I did also get a £10 off Sönd voucher but even with that money off I can't really afford their products. I'd rather buy more lipstick anyway (I still need to repurchase Stila Baci).

thisworks In Transit Camera Close-up (20ml)

I chose this because I am looking for a new primer and this one claims to hydrate which I desperately need. It is said to banish signs of fatigue (i need a miracle), counterbalances redness (my cheeks are so red), reduce wrinkles and leave skin naturally radiant. Unfortunately it smells really strongly of something that reminds me of old people. I think it's some sort of flower I dunno but I really don't like it. It's soo strong and I don't know if I can get past it. It does make my face feel nice & smooth though but my foundation didn't apply on top of it very well. I think this one may be a no from me.

Beverly Hills Formula Perfect White Black Toothpaste

This box arrived the morning that I was trying to find the energy to go and get my toothpaste out of the car after going away. Perfect timing and I didn't have to leave my house. It's a black toothpaste formulated with activated charcoal to help remove tannins from the surface of your teeth to reduce staining. It also eliminates the bacteria that causes bad breath. My teeth have honestly never felt so clean and I may need to buy more. I was a bit disappointed that it foams up white though. Black foam would have been soo cool.

As I said I wasn't that impressed with this months box but for £8.95 it's given me some new brands to try. Here's hoping next month has some more makeup picks.
