YOU Beauty Box – February’s Beauty Sweethearts
February’s Beauty Sweethearts, darlings…
It’s not the arrival of February that makes us want to weep tears of joy, it’s more the fact that we’ve said goodbye to January for another year. There aren’t many occasions when we wish away time (because wrinkles) but, when it comes to January, we’ve got a legitimate case. Perking up the tail end of winter no end, is this February’s YOU Beauty Box shortlist. Dubbed “The Beauty Sweethearts” edit, this month’s selection is dedicated to giving all YOU Beauty Box members a powerful winter tonic and a nicely timed pick-me-up, as we look ahead to spring.
Why we’ve fallen for these Beauty Sweethearts…
Let’s start with the make-up featuring in this month’s shortlist – firstly, Transformulas® LipVolume deserves a very special mention. Dubbed ‘beauty without surgery’ this award-winning range of cosmetics is taking the industry by storm and really raising the game. Transformulas® LipVolume gets to work by increasing lip size by moisturising – something that makes a bigger difference than we previously thought possible. Deeper hydration not only reduces fine lines and softens the lips, it also leaves them looking plumper and much more defined. Sweep this gloss-like formula on 3 times a day for 30 days and you should see a notable difference to the overall look of your lips.
Next up there’s a double dose of the gorgeous Bellápierre Cosmetics in February’s shortlist. Volumizing Black Mascara and Champagne Shimmer Powder are representing the mineral make-up professionals and YOU Beauty Box could not have picked two greater products to do so. With easy application and long-lasting hold, both beauty products illustrate precisely why Bellápierre Cosmetics are recommended by make-up artists and dermatologists worldwide.
Skincare has leapt up the priority list over the past month, another unfortunate side-effect of winter. Which is why we’re loving the generous skincare offering also featured within the Beauty Sweethearts edit. From Sanctuary’s incredibly effective yet gentle Foaming Micellar Cleansing Water – a mild but thorough facial cleanser which works as quickly as a face wipe but removes so much more; to Madara’s luxurious Time Miracle Serum – a clinically proven serum, formulated with Madara’s cell-repair bio-complex and revitalising birch tree juice for active anti-ageing and a daily recharge.
Then there’s Oskia Skincare’s Renaissance Mask, a brightening and resurfacing facial mask, packed with MSM, passion fruit, Grape, Lemon & Grapefruit AHA’s, Papaya Enzymes, Swiss Garden Cress Liposomes, Prebiotics, Ribose and Butterbur – a smoothing and illuminating anti-ageing cocktail that is suitable for all skin types and gives immediate spa-quality results.
As we enter the final few weeks of winter, general body care is also important. Staying hydrated and nourished is top of the beauty agenda and, helping you do just that, Weleda’s Wild Rose Pampering Body Lotion and Argan+ Moroccan Rose Hand Cream both make a welcome appearance on the Beauty Sweethearts shortlist. Each of these charmingly scented moisturisers delivers deep and long-lasting hydration in quickly absorbed lotions – without leaving the skin’s surface greasy.
Hair is also taken care of in February’s YOU Beauty Box. Nip split ends and frizz in the bud with Umberto Giannini’s Curl Jelly – for scrunch-drying all curl types and adding shine and definition, and KMS California Moist Repair Revival Crème – restores moisture, greatly improves hair’s manageability and reduces static flyaways.
This Works® Deep Sleep Pillow Spray is the final piece of February’s puzzle and will relax and calm you in a flash. This potent sleep spray aids a more restful night’s sleep so you feel much more awake and renewed the following morning.
Finally, February’s extra treats are as follows for all members: Sample vial of Jimmy Choo L’EAU eau de toilette and a Sukin Detoxifying Clay Masque.
Gold members only, will also receive a FREE MoroccanOil Treatment Light (25ml) – ideal for fine or light-coloured hair but a hit of heady hydration for all hair types.
