November was another month with a strange and limited selection of beauty products to choose from. There wasn’t enough to tempt me to upgrade from the usual Bronze membership, but for people who are shopping for stocking fillers it was ideal with six full sized products on offer. I chose The Organic Pharmacy Lip and Eye Cream and the AA Skincare Frankincense & Rose Moisturising Face Cream, both full sized products. The bonus items were useful; Popband Santa Baby Hair Ties, Kenzo ~ FLOWERBYKENZO, and 7th Heaven Strengthen Nail and Cuticle Finger Masques.
The Organic Pharmacy Lip and Eye Cream (worth £26.95), is a gentle and hydrating eye cream with shea butter, rose hip and frankincense, and perfect for a time of year when the skin gets dehydrated easily. I also discovered a new brand; AA Skincare, Frankincense & Rose Moisturising Face Cream, which I was pleasantly surprised with that it deserves a separate review. Don’t be fooled by the simple packaging, or put off by the price (£7.98) thinking it isn’t a premium product. It’s a product that has impressed me, and that’s not easy.

There are advantages of being a You Beauty Box member, with discounts codes available, and free postage and packing for limited edition boxes and the beauty advent calendar.
Rating 3/5: This month the choices seemed a little basic, but I can’t fault the service as my box arrived promptly within a few days of ordering. If you are looking for some stocking fillers or gifts, this box is great value with a good selection of full sized items to choose from. A Bronze membership is £6.95 for two items, Silver costs £8.95 for three items, and a Gold membership is £10.95 for four items, and postage is free on all orders.
