The You Beauty Box is one of my subscription boxes and one that I will let you know about each month.

This is the July Box which I just received today.

The You Beauty Box is produced in association with You Magazine, the Daily Mail Saturday supplement.  There are three levels of membership attracting fees of £6.95, £8.95 or £10.95.  The difference is the amount of items you receive in your box.

I have the £10.95 membership.

I am excited about the contents this month, particularly the St Tropez gradual tan in the shower.  There is also a money off coupon in the box to put towards a further purchase of this.  As my skin literally hates the sun it will be great to get a bit of colour on my arms just in time for the wedding I am going to at the end of the month.  We’ll see how it goes!


The Philip Kingsley Swimcap protective cream is for guarding hair against damage caused by the sun, sea and chlorine.  This is going to get donated immediately to my lovely mother in law who is always in the water!

The Roger & Gallet body lotion looks lovely in its pink packaging and smells delicious.  I do like a nice smell.

Carmex is without doubt my favoured lip balm so this is a little treat.  I usually have the original pot.  I tried this and it tastes divine.

A Rimmel nail varnish, a collaboration with Rita Ora.  I love the name.  Have nail varnish names just got really clever or has it been that way for ages?  I’ve only just got into nail varnishes.  This has a lot to do with my American cousin taking me for my first mani.  Hubby reminds me that for 16 years I couldn’t wear nail varnish because of my work as a police officer so it is likely that I just got used to not thinking about it.  Nowadays I have boxes of nail varnishes!

And finally an ever useful black eyeliner.  My staple piece of make-up along with mascara.

So I’ll give them all a go and let you know how they fair up.

The You Beauty Box allows you to choose from a selection of items – I obviously missed doing that this month as would never have ordered Swim Cap.  Still Mother in Law will be happy I’m sure.  So I am off to choose next months treasure!
