Discovered Beauty Box Review by Nazia – August 2020`

I can’t even begin to tell you how thrilled I am about reviewing this box again. I was really impressed with the last box I received; it was absolutely spot on so I have very high expectations for this month’s box! A big thank you to the lovely DBB team for allowing me to review this incredible subscription again.

If you missed my live unboxing you can catch it here on our YouTube channel:

What I thought:

The items are packaged in a big recyclable box that has the elegant DBB logo on the top in gold print. Inside I found a lovely handwritten card that adds that extra personal touch and shows how much thought has gone into the box. The products are wrapped in gold tissue paper and underneath I found:

Sanatio Naturalis Flowering Tea Caddy

I am a big tea fan so I thought this was a nice addition to this box, I especially like the reusable caddy which I’m definitely going to be keeping! Flowering tea consist each of a bundle of dried tea leaves wrapped around one or more dried flowers. When steeped, the bundle expands and unfurls in a process that emulates a blooming flower, while the flowers inside emerge as the centrepiece. I have to be honest and say that I like fragrant teas but I much prefer black tea to white tea. It wasn’t that I disliked it, it just wasn’t my cup of tea, although I very much enjoyed the theatrics of the tea bulbs flowering. It contains 9 Blossoms: 3 x Floral Basket, 3 x Summer Bloom, 3 x Jasmine Wonders and each bulb comes individually sealed for freshness. I’ve only managed to try Summer Blossom but I plan to try the other two teas before I rule it out completely.

Cloud Melts & Bathing Wax Burner & Snap Bar Wax Melts

I must say, I was pleasantly surprised to find a wax burner in here and it explains why the box felt weighted! This cute heart shaped pattern and sleek ceramic design fits in beautifully with almost any décor and lets you fill your space with gorgeous scents! In addition to the burner there are two snap bars included in the scents Tropical Infusion and Strawberries and Cream. Tropical infusion has a punchy fruity scent that is reminiscent of a warm and sunny tropical paradise, like being on holiday and given our current circumstance this was a welcomed sensation! Nothing says summer like juicy fresh Strawberries, especially with a dollop of cream! This classic combination of rich, indulgent and delicious scents that smell good enough to eat while the creamy / milky notes will fill your room with a warm sugary scent. Both snap bars smell absolutely incredible! I am so impressed with the throw from these wax melts as they fill the whole room within minutes! I like how colourful and pretty they are with the added glitter and confetti and both bars are a generous size too.

Bear & Bee Sweet Company Vegan Pick ‘n’ Mix

Fruity, chewy and tasty this little bag of treats is perfect when needing that little sugar rush without being too sickly sweet. It’s just the right size and contains both fizzy and gummy sweets including some classic favourites like cola bottles and cherries! These sweets are free from gelatine, artificial colouring and alcohol. Therefore, they are suitable for all vegetarian and vegan sweet lovers!

Sanatio Naturalis Miracle Jojoba Radiance Essence

This 100% natural elixir is said to soothe, soften and balance the skin as well as smooth fine lines and wrinkles. Splashing your skin with a wave of hydration, this Essence leaves your face nourished with weightless and soothing coverage. I didn’t notice any effects on the few wrinkles I have but it left my skin feeling radiant and smooth to the touch. This product is really versatile and can be used on face, body and hair, is beautifully packaged and is suitable for all skin types including acne-prone, sensitive, dry, mature and oily.

Verdict

Wow, what can I say? This box was not at all what I was expecting and is vastly different from last month’s box! I think that’s why this box appeals to me so much – you never know what you’re going to receive but you can guarantee that it’s going to be a bang on the mark! As much as I love receiving makeup and beauty items, it’s nice to get something a little different too! For those of you looking for something a little different and more suited to your beauty and lifestyle needs it’s definitely worth checking this box out, especially since your first box will have 15% off with the code ‘BOXES15.’ I have linked the website and social media handles below, go check them out!
