This September we’re celebrating YOU Beauty Box’s 3rd birthday success with the ultimate Editor’s Picks edit…
We might only be three years old but that’s a long time in the beauty box industry and certainly enough time to qualify the YOU Beauty Box team as little short of experts, when it comes to all things beauty related.
September’s birthday shortlist comes in the form of the always-fantastic Editor’s Picks from our one and only Sue Peart.
Yup, you read that right, award-winning YOU Editor Sue Peart has personally selected September’s extraordinary shortlist and, as you might expect, it’s absolutely jam-packed with beauty essentials that we need in our lives – pronto!
Here’s what’s included and why we love it:
Sally Hansen Insta Dri Top Coat
This little beauty does exactly what it says on the bottle and leaves nails looking totally made-over with a serious salon-like finish. No more stressing over a smudge an hour after you’re done painting your nails – this Insta Dri Top Coat will have you fixed up and looking sharp in an instant.
Eyeko Black Magic Mascara
This sensational mascara delivers a dramatic lift and lengthen effect to the lashes, one that gives eyes a sexy and sassy edge, whilst conditioning the lashes and staying in place all night long. We haven’t been able to get enough of this product ever since we sampled it – therefore it must be black magic because we are bewitched.
Sanctuary Ultimate Cleansing Oil
Let’s face it, cleansing oils can be a bit of a skincare gauntlet can’t they? Thankfully this totally luxurious effort from everyone’s go-to brand when they’re in need of a spot of Sunday night pampering pulls out all the stops. It basically melts away all signs of make-up and leaves skin feeling clean, soft and loved!
Weleda Skin Food
Celeb favourite and all-round great skincare brand Weleda has become known for this little tube of brilliance. A cult beauty product used by everyone in the know, Skin Food quite literally feeds the skin with a cocktail of potent ingredients, for a completely regenerated look and feel.
Weleda Sensitive Skin Almond Body Lotion
Finally, a product designed for sensitive skin, that doesn’t feel like it’s trying to make you feel like you’re missing out! This luxurious body lotion contains organic almond oil to strengthen the skin’s own protective function and defends against exposure to the elements – whilst all the while leaving skin amazingly soft.
Malin + Goetz Vitamin E Face Moisturiser
Hailing from New York, this super brand is becoming bigger by the second and, if you’re anything like us, you might find yourself hooked from first use. Suitable for all skin types – yes, including sensitive, this oil-free moisturiser doesn’t mess about. It’s a serious contender for one of our fave all-time moisturisers.
Erno Laszlo ³Firmarine Hydrogel Mask²
A peel on, peel off face mask that gives the skin the oomph it was lacking in less than 20 minutes. Yes, really. We were blown away by this face mask, which contours the face and delivers a concentrated shot of super strength ingredients to penetrate pores, remove toxins and leave the skin with an amazing and very revived glow.
Argan + Anti Age Hand Cream
This hand cream is like something from the skincare gods. Not only does it have an SPF 15 but it also helps to even skin tone and fade brown spots with regular use. The quick nourishing and intense moisturising effect, that this hand cream has, are second to none at the moment – naturally it smells divine!
Indeed Labs – nanoblur
Developed with optical xprism technology (we know – don’t be blinded by the science, stay with us for this one), nanoblur gives skin a sort of airbrushed effect by changing the way light reflects off the skin. The result is a more matte complexion that appears softened and more youthful.
philosophy take a deep breath oil-free oxygenating gel cream
The ultimate wellbeing brand have stood up and delivered with this dreamy and totally revitalising gel cream. Absorbed rapidly, it also makes a great primer before make-up and is that rare beauty product that you can actually feel it taking effect.
THE HERO PROJECT™ Hyasoft® Instant Moisture Boost
This clear, non-sticky gel is packed with vitamin B5 and infamous hyaluronic acid. It has been formulated to penetrate the skin at different levels and multi-task on its way! You can use it as a moisturiser on its own, or just apply a bit under your day/night cream for added hydration throughout.
THE HERO PROJECT™ Glow Drops® Dry Touch Facial Oil + Vitamin C
First thing’s first, these Glow Drops smell beautiful! A good sign but certainly not all there is to this product. After all, they are packed with 10 scented natural essential oils and a heavy dose of vitamin C – all vital stuff in the battle against premature skin ageing.
PROPERCORN Lightly Sea Salted or Sweet & Salty
With every September YOU Beauty Box we will also be including a free bag of PROPERCORN – the guilt-free and delicious popcorn that just about everyone in the office has been snacking on for the past month. PROPERCORN was built on the belief that there shouldn’t have to be a compromise between health and taste. Every delicious flavour in PROPERCORN’s award-winning collection is gluten-free, suitable for vegetarians and made using 100% natural ingredients. And with less than 60 calories per pack, you’re about to be introduced to sin-free snacking at its best!
