The December You Beauty Box sees them partnering up with Feel Unique and offering an exclusive members only 15% off feelunique.com/you-beauty-december
The packaging differs slightly this month as the usual box has a white outer sleeve with the Feel Unique branding on it.
There were quite a few good items to choose from for the December You Beauty Box but I completely forgot to go and pick my items quickly before the best ones ran out. I had been hoping to get the Foreo night cleanser but it was sold out by the time I remembered. as were most of the items I wanted.
So my choices for the December You Beauty Box were:-
- Palmer’s Coconut Oil Formula Body Lotion
- Jurlique Rosewater Balancing Mist
- Benefit POREfessional Primer
- Murad AHA/BHA Exfoliating Cleanser
Palmer’s Coconut Oil Formula Body Lotion – I suffer with dry skin so figured this would be something I would find useful. Who doesn’t love a good coconut body lotion? It’s perfect for nourishing and moisturising dry, dehydrated skin.
Jurlique Rose Balancing Mist – I’ve never tried any Jurlique products and I am really fond of mists, so decided to give this a whirl. First off, it smells amazing; a gorgeous subtle rose scent which reminded me of Turkish Delight. This mist is rich in Rose Essential Oil too. Just spray it on your face or hands then gently press it into the skin. It’s really lovely and hydrating. I’d like to purchase the full size of this.
Benefit POREfessional Primer – Everyone pretty much raves about how good this is, so I thought I may as well try it out. I’ve not tested it yet but I hope it’s as good as everyone claims it to be.
Murad AHA/BHA Exfoliating Cleanser – This cleanser contains both chemical and manual exfoliators to polish your skin, revealing a brighter, glowing, younger looking complexion. It has glycolic, salicylic and lactic acids to help dissolve dead skins cells and jojoba beads to smooth the skin’s surface.
For the December You Beauty Box extra treats I also received the following:-
Narciso Eau De Parfum by Narciso Rodrgiuez – A sample size, I’ll be honest and say this wasn’t to my taste. It’s kinda woodsy and floral. It was nice but not something I would wear myself.
Mandara Spa Shea & Coconut Hand Butter – This is a really lovely hand cream. It smells gorgeous; you can smell the coconut. So great for dry hands as it’s a rich cream that absorbs easily leaving hands feeling soft and hydrated but not greasy.
Overall Thoughts About The December You Beauty Box
I was actually quite pleased with my choices and the extras this month. I’m still a little annoyed at myself for forgetting to get to their website early to pick my choices as I would have liked to have tried the Foreo Night Cleanser.
I like the idea of this box; that you get to pick your own products to try plus they also include some extras.
It’s not expensive and is a great starting box if you’ve never tried a subscription box before. The only downside is that you have to be early as you can be, to make your choices each month because the best items sell out really quickly.
