'You Beauty Box' Beauty Advent Calendar 2016

| No Comments | No TrackBacks

I don't know if the end of October is too early to be discussing beauty advent calendars, but I have seen a few posts for them now, so I think it is safe to start discussing them. 'YOU Beauty Discovery' launched their new advent calendar for 2016. I bought the beauty advent calendar last year, and it arrived just before I went on holiday for the majority of the month for December. I had opened up the calendar doors before I went and decided to post my review this year, after I had tried out most of the products. "YOU Beauty Box" no longer exists, but they now trade under "Latest in Beauty", which does have a beauty advent calendar for the 2017 advent.


Charles Worthington Moisture Seal Hair Healer Leave-in Conditioner: This conditioner promises to protect, repair and moisturise hair as well as leave it feeling soft and nourished.

The White Company candle in 'Orange Grove': I enjoy 'The White Company' scents, and  this scent "Orange Grove" smells like orange peel. It is a relaxing citrus smell that evokes memories of December.

Carmex Original Pot lip balm: Carmex's lip balm is one of my favourite lip moisturisers. It does as it says - soothes and moisturises dry lips, and you can use it on other parts of your body that need a little moisture.

Malin+Goetz Vitamin E Face Moisturiser: I've received this product so many times, but it is one that I do not see the benefits of. It is a face moisturiser that promises to give skin vitamins, and it's not oily but absorbed into the skin.

Miller Harris Rose Silence eau de parfum: This rose-scented perfume smells divine and has long-lasting power. I absolutely love it.

MUA Twelfth Night Palette & Dusk Til Dawn Palletes: There were two pallettes available, and I received the 'Dusk Til Dawn' one instead of the wintery shades of 'Twelfth Night'. Both had similar colours that work well for the office and evening wear.

Amie Deep Pore Exfoliating Polish: This award-winning exfoliating polish is 95% natural to remove skin of oil and dirt while keeping not too harsh for sensitive skin.

SanctuarySpa Foaming Micellar Cleansing Water: This cleansing water removes make-up from skin. It is made from argan oil and rose water combined with micelles that lift away dirt from the skin.

Rodial smokey eye pen in black: This eye liner can be blended easily to create the smokey eye effect using the smudge brush.

The Vintage Cosmetic Company Duo Pencil Sharpenner in pink: This make-up pencil sharpener can sharpen thin or thick pencils or jumbo crayons, and it is handy to carry around in a make-up bag.

Oskia Renaissance Mask: This is a skin exfoliating mask to improve complexion.


Nansky Kabuki Brush: This brush is perfect for applying bronzers or loose powders. It also does not absorb make-up or oils from skin, which is important for hygiene.

Bee Good Youth Enhancing Hydrate, Smooth and Prime Serum: This highly-concentrated formula targets signs of aging. The formula contains honey, blackcurrant seed oil, and other products to aid in moisturising and hydrating skin.

Deep Sleep Pillow Spray: This lavender-scented spray should be used on pillow or bedding to aid sleep. Lavender is naturally relaxing. I've used this spray a few times but do not see any benefit in this, and I think that any lavendar scent would help aid relaxation.

Leighton Denny Miracle Mist: This formula should be used on wet nails after applying nail polish. It promises to dry them quicker as well as condition the cuticles.

Omorovieza refining facial polish: This facial polisher contains micro-algae and promises to brighten and exfoliate tired skin.

ESPA overnight hydration therapy: 'Beauty Sleep in a Jar' is a rejuvenating night mask to transform skin overnight. It also contains aromatic oils to help aid in sleep.

Rimmel 60-second super-shine nail polish in rapid ruby: This bright red nail polish dries quickly with a deep red shine.

The Organic Pharmacy Marigold and Comfrey Hand and Nail Cream: This hand and nail cream contains shea butter, jojoba, aloe, marigold, and comfrey to soothe and nourish hands.

Margaret Dabbs Crystal Nail File: This nail file is made of crystal to prevent nails from splitting.

Aurelia Miracle Cleanser and Bamboo Muslin Cloth: This cleanser promises to remove impurities in the skin as well as hydrate and prevent anti-aging.

Burt's Bees tinted lip balm in rose: This lip balm provides a hint of colour. Burt's Bees are 100% natural. It is a product that I enjoy using.

Nuxe Prodigieux Shower Oil: This shower oil gently cleans and provides fragrance to skin.

Moroccanoil Treatment: This hair product can be used as conditioning, styling or finishing.


Overall, I really enjoyed the products in this box as I received a wide range of different products.
