This months YouBeauty box really didn’t tickle my fancy in anyway, in terms of product choice. The few bits that I may have been interested in were out of stock, so I just ended up picking the most practical of the remainder of the bunch.
Julys box is inspired by travel, with the majority of the products being sun cream or fake tan based, neither of which rocked my world, so I opted for the Maybelline Miss Manga Mascara and the Balm Balm rose lip (and more) balm. Both products are a good size, the mascara is of course a full size, and I think the balm is too, if it’s not though then I’m pretty pleased with how big the sample is.
Then for the extra goodies, I was sent a sample sachet of the Egyptian Magic cream, which I’ve tried before and really enjoyed, it’s great for sensitive and dry skin. Also tucked in there was a sample vial of the Agent Provocator perfume Fatal, which I had a little spitz of – it’s nice enough but didn’t seem to last on me too long, and it sort of reminded me of something else.
And then lastly, and most strangely, there was quite a good sized tube of the Dove men’s care shave cream, now when I first saw this is though da faq am I supposed to do with this? I thought about giving it to the boy to try out, but he doesn’t really wet shave much anyway, so I’ve just decided to keep it and use it to shave my legs with instead. It’s all the same anyway! It did get me thinking though that it would be nice to see some of these brands like Dove, who concoct specialist shave cream for me, to maybe create similar for women, as I have quite sensitive skin on my legs, and most convention shaving gels irritate me.
