You Beauty Discovery Box!!!

So I stumbled upon this when ordering the Youbeauty advent calendar, I've been subscribed to glossybox for about 18months now, part of the beauty of glossybox is also part of it's downside. You don't know what you're going to get each month!!! You beauty is different in the sense that you pick 2 samples each month out of 6-12 options, if you don't choose by a particular date 2 samples are randomly selected for you, for £6.95 a month and 2 extras that are included in everyone's box. It's on a first come first served basis, so if there's something you want you have to get on the website quick.
It's quite cute and compact in size compared to the glossybox, by the time I signed up some of the samples were out of stock, so I picked the oriflame mascara and Murad osmolyte tonic. I then got a sample of Lizi's granola cereal in Belgian chocolate and a sample of Montagne Jeunesse body smoothies.
Murad osmolyte tonic
This is a spritz facial toner that claims to hydrate, plump and firm the skin, this is a 15ml sample!!! I've used this a couple of times and am loving it, I've used Murad products in the past and they never disappoint.
Oriflame Wonder lash mascara

I had never heard of this Swedish brand, it claims to give lift, length and amazing fullness. I've used this today and love it, it's got a plastic brush, with longer bristles on one side, which the company brand as a 3D brush.
Montagne Jeunesse body smoothies 

Again another brand I had not heard of, this is one of the 2 samples everyone gets, it claims to leave skin soft, hydrated and smelling fabulous. I am yet to use this, but being a small sachet I'll probably jut use it on my hands. I ate the Lizi's granola cereal before taking an individual picture as I wasn't planning on writing this post, it claims to have a low glycemic load so energy is released slowly. It was a very small serving, I felt I needed at least 3 packs to get close to the amount I would normally have for breakfast. However I got the Belgian chocolate flavour and it was very nice.

You beauty discovery leaflet

It also includes this mini leaflet that explains each product, and has lots of discount codes if you choose to buy the full size product.

All in all I'm liking this box and will definitely stay subscribed for a while, I like that you have an element of control, it's very affordable and you can unsubscribe at anytime. They also produce limited edition boxes from time to time, currently they have one for balance me products, and the advent calendar looks amazing for £49.95. Check out the website here
