The YOU Beauty Box August Edit;
YOU relax, we’ve got this…
August is a time for sun, sea and sand – a time for a much-needed holiday and a spot of R&R before that familiar back to work feeling kicks in at the end of the month. With this in mind, the August YOU Beauty Box shortlist is titled The Sumptuous Spa Edit and includes a gorgeous selection of products that have been carefully selected to help you unwind and hit the proverbial reset button…
Bath & Bodycare
With a spa theme, the Bath & Bodycare products are leading the way this August and even Gold members will find themselves spoilt for choice when it comes to building their monthly beauty box.
L’Occitane Jasmin & Bergamot Shower Gel is a harmonious blend of two delicate fragrances, that will leave your skin feeling renewed and loved. We love how this luxurious shower gel encapsulates summer-time florals, whilst remaining fresh and crisp. These gels foam generously once in contact with water and cleanse the skin gently without stripping or drying. Why not try this one for your holiday and then explore the rest of the range when you return home?
If you prefer a soak in the tub, Kneipp Devil’s Claw Back Comfort will help you bathe away daily stress and strain with its highly concentrated dose of essential oils. Containing Valerian and Hops, known for their calming effects, a soak in this will leave you rested and at ease.
SenSpa Sleep Therapy Bath Soak is another slumber-inducing magic potion to help you unwind; it’s combination of evening primrose, jasmine extract and dreamy lavender, bergamot and patchouli essential oils leave skin satin soft and prepared for a restful night’s sleep.
If your skin is struggling and in need of an exfoliant treatment, the Sanctuary Ultimate Salt Scrub Sachet should be top of your list and first in your monthly beauty box. Containing sea salt from the renowned Dead Sea and a rich mix of moisturising jojoba, coconut and almond oils, one use of this will make sure skin is gleaming and exquisitely scented.
Post-shower or bath, or simply on the go when skin is feeling a bit stressed and dehydrated; Aromatherapy Associates Renewing Rose Body Cream delivers a deeply nourishing treatment to even the driest of skin types and can even aid with diminishing the appearance of stretch marks.
Sticking with heavenly fragrances for now, the Roger & Gallet Lait Sorbet Corps Dynamisant Gingembre Rouge & Fresh Fragrant Water Gingembre Rouge Duo are a significant introduction to this fragrance house and the all-encompassing collections that they offer. The matching products ensure that these fabulous colognes last all day and can be topped-up, as required. This miniature duo is ideal for a weekend away.
It doesn’t matter how you try to disguise it, if you’re feeling stressed, fatigued or under-the-weather, it shows on your complexion; an unfortunate fact when you consider that so many of us spend so much of our time feeling exhausted!
If you fall short of a suitable daily cleansing regime, Sanctuary’s Ultimate Cleansing Oil will get you back into good habits, fast. Infused with a fragrant blend of pure essential oils and natural ingredients, this oil effortlessly melts away make-up and daily grime and leaves the skin clean and soft, without greasiness.
111SKIN Bio Cellulose Facial Treatment Mask caught us by surprise this month and what a treat it was! This powerful face mask has an instant cooling effect on the skin (ideal for this time of the year) and, with fibres that are 500 x finer than those on tissue masks, the mask locks moisture into the skin almost immediately and enables a deeper penetration of the mask’s three key ingredients.
For anyone who has fallen out of love with their skin recently and might be worried about the first signs of ageing, the Elemental Herbology Cell Plumping Facial Hydrator works overtime to plump and nourish dry skin with its unique 24-hour moisturising complex, fortified with anti-oxidants, vitamins, minerals and ultra-hydrating botanicals. With continued use, it also promises to help even skin tone and repair damaged cells.
On the hunt for an anti-ageing serum? (Comfort Zone) Sublime Skin Essence is an innovative creamy serum that has been specifically blended to firm and re-plump – making skin visibly compact and luminous at once. Intended for mature skin and recommended for all skin types, this concentrated solution also amplifies the efficacy of anti-age products used after this serum for maximised results.
As August draws to a close, most of us look forward to a new season shopping spree and tend to give our make-up bag and kit the once over. This month’s shortlist includes The Vintage Cosmetic Company Duo Pencil Sharpener in Pink – a great way to sample the quality of this go-to accessories brand and prep your eye and lip liners for autumn!
For the month of August, every YOU Beauty Box member will receive a free sample of Philosophy purity made simple 3-in-1 cleanser, the luxury skincare product is an award-winning one-step daily facial cleanser which removes make-up, cleanses, tones and lightly hydrates as it goes!
All Gold YOU Beauty Box members will also receive a FREE Roger & Gallet’s Lait Sorbet with Orange Extract, 50ml product; sunny, soft and woody – another fine example of one of our favourite brands.
