You Beauty Discovery YBD January/February Unboxing

I've been very bad at updating this blog with my new boxes so thought it would be easier if I did a joint Jan/Feb unboxing posts for my beauty boxes.

This is my first (and second) You Beauty Discovery boxes. With You Beauty Discovery you choose 2 products from a list of 8-10 each month and then they add a couple of extra treats for you. YBD is £6.95 a month (free p&p) on a rolling monthly membership which you can cancel at anytime.

January You Beauty Discovery was all about Detox SOS. Excuse the bad pictures I'm having to use my mobile phone to take pictures at the moment.

The first of the products I choose was Green Tea Exfoliating Marvel Gel from Ginvera. This product is AMAZING! At first I though it was a bit strange as it takes away the top layer of dead skin cells and you can really see the dead skin coming off on your fingertips. I know I dont describe it very well so here is the excerpt from the Ginvera website.

Ginvera Green Tea Exfoliating Marvel Gel works by specifically targeting the cornified skin layer, dissolving and removing the dead skin cells on the top most epidermis layer.
This gentle yet effective exfoliating action zeros-out blackheads thoroughly and painlessly and helps remove deep layers of dead skin. When the dead skin barrier is removed, the new skin underneath is revealed, allowing your skin’s healthy radiance to glow from within. It helps prevent pimples and controls oil secretion to help you stay shine-free the whole day!

Second up I choose a 2 for 1 kinda deal. Goldwell Ultra Rich Keratin Care Shampoo and Daily Intense Mask. Again I love both of these products. They made my hair feel really soft and so shiny. When this January box was released the Goldwell products weren't available to buy in the UK. The official release date was 1st Feb so they are now available to buy and I will definitely be buying the full size versions of these products.

 For my extras this month I got a little bag of Barbeque Popchips. Yummy little crisps that have been 'popped' instead of baked or fried as many other crisps are. I have since bought multiple bags of these as they taste so good and are healthier options compared to crisps that are fried/baked.

My other extra I gave away so cant comment on it. Age Defy+ 24 Hour Brightening Cream & a £5 off voucher for the full size on their website. Great little extra though.

February YBD is still available to buy for a few days yet although some of the choices are now sold out.
Heres what I got in my box.

I choose Glamglow Youthmud Tinglexfoliate Treament and Pixi Flawless & Poreless Primer. Both of these are now out of stock as they were very popular.


The ultimate at-home mud treatment for immediate camera-ready super radiant skin.
For when you need great skin and a glowing complexion in just 10 minutes.
It delivers both instant and cumulative results and leaves your complexion revived and glowing, whatever your skin type.

Comes with a voucher code REDCARPET to get buy one get one free GLAMGLOW SUPER BRIGHT GLAMTASTIC Try Before You Buy kit.


Create a silky canvas with a beautiful no-shine, cashmere finish.
The formula's skin-loving ingredients clear and unblock pores to allow for utterly flawless, long-lasting makeup application. It is the perfect skin primer for all complexions and all skin types.

My Extras for Feb are Charles Worthington Volume & Bounce Shampoo which came with a £2 off voucher for full size from Boots. Valid until end of June so this will probably get used next time I buy new Shampoo.

And last but my no means least - a bag of Beyond Dark chocolate with a hint of orange. Also came with a 25% off voucher code to use online at beyond dark. enter REDCARPET at checkout.
