This Month’s You Beauty Discovery box .. Handbag Heroes

Hi everyone,


I really love a monthly gift box coming through my door, it perks me up and gives me something to look forward to and the You Discovery Box is always excellent value for money at just £6.95 delivered!


First item is a sachet of Cowshed Anti-Ageing perfecting night serum rrp £48, this serum is relatively new to the market i think and just as well it smells good as it is very runny and i appear to be wearing most of it already lol. ( have stolen a pic from YBD as mine is now all messy lol)

It is a lovely light oil you use at night and overnight it tones, balances, plumps, smoothes, firms and improves skin tone, i love an all in one oil but in winter i definitely need a cream over the top as my skin gets extremely dried out, but this looks, sounds and smells good!


Next up is Gold Collagen~Forte available in Boots this is a liquid drink  beauty supplement for the over 40’s (thats me 🙂 ), Is fortified with collagen, borage oil, vitamin B6 and vitamin D, antioxidants,  sugar free and sweetened with Stevia and it tastes very drinkable indeed, i wish i could afford these all the time because they not only help your hair, skin and nails but your bones and joints too so it really does have an awful lot of health benefits going for it! It is sugar free and sweetened with Stevia,


Mabye i’l win the lotto someday lol …

Anyway the next item is Crystal Clear intense anti-ageing serum, all oils and serums coming into the winter months is greatly appreciated here as the heat just zaps my skin, so does the wind and rain and thats pretty much what we get in Portrush!

Crystal Clear is loved by Gwinnie Paltrow and Kate Moss apparently and that means i just have to get stuck in and see if i get wonderful skin like they do lol!

But this is right for my skin type which needs a bit  more than just moisturiser. Its a powerful complex of Syn-ake a polypeptide found in the venom of the Temple Viper Snake which has been proven to be very effective in relaxing expression lines by relaxing facial muscles, It olso has Tourmaline (for radiance) , olive oil extract and an oxygen complex to regenerate and brighten.


Last but not lease it the Illamasqua glamore lipstick in Tease, buttery soft with a lovely satin finish on the lips this nude collection from illamasqua are such a lovely rich, hydrating lipstick, perfect the understated lip and a smokey eye look!


Well thats it for this months box and what incredible value for money it is!, mine feels more like a tailored anti ageing box than handbag heroes nonetheless it is a fabulous box. It comes with a host of special offers on the products too so make sure you check the leaflets out too …


The lipstick alone is £18.95 if you were to go buy one so that makes up for the cost of the box x3! Only thing i will say tho is watch the dates on the other products tho because they do not have a very long shelf life! So get them out and use them!

Bye for now
