Discovered Beauty Box Review By Nazia – October 2020

A huge thank you to the wonderful people at Discovered Beauty Box for sending me another of their fabulous boxes to review! This subscription box is the one I’m always most excited to receive, the previous boxes have all been an absolute pleasure and with this month being DBB’s 1st birthday I have no doubts that I am in for a real treat!

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 which is a lovely touch as it adds that extra personal touch and a contents card detailing the products within.

Angelic Chocolate Coconut & Oat Slices

Made with wholesome ingredients these deliciously soft chewy slices are the perfect guilt free snack! A gorgeous combination of chocolate chips, coconut and oaty goodness that goes down an absolutely treat. Enjoy alongside a cup of tea or as a post breakfast snack.

Ksoni Unati Moisturising Body Wash

On first seeing this product I mistakenly thought it was a drink because of the style of the packaging, but it in fact contains a body wash! It has been designed with a bio-degradable cap to reseal your plastic free can so you can continue using after opening. This body wash is infused with ylang ylang, lavender and argan oil which makes it smell so incredible! The lavender has a wonderful calming and soothing effect whilst the argan oil helps to lock in moisture and leave skin feeling super soft, and the ylang ylang adds a wonderful floral note. Such a dream to use whilst showering.

Glamlite Horchata Lips

This is a brand that I’d not heard of, but with a quick google search I found that it is a popular brand in America. I received the shade cinnamon; I don’t usually wear lip gloss but I absolutely adore this neutral pinky brown shade. It applies on really evenly; it isn’t at all sticky and it has a beautiful cinnamon smell to it too. The other thing I need to mention is the mirror on the side of the tube which is so handy for topping up on a night out. It can be worn on its own or as a lip topper to add a pop of shine to your look.

Glamlite Meat Lover’s Eyeshadow Palette

Wow how stunning is this palette?? I am totally in love with this savoury pizza palette from Glamlite, it has 10 mouth-watering shades which includes five matte shadows and five glitter shadows. The rich, creamy and vibrant matte shadows apply really well onto the lid and are so blendable. The glitter shades are so buttery and blindingly reflective and is so gorgeous on its own or to add a bit of sparkle to finish off your look. The packaging is really cute and I am loving the shade name choices which tie in with the palette theme perfectly!

MEMI Makeup Luxe Face Set

This set contains 8 luxurious synthetic brushes with elegant copper chromium cap and ferrule. It features a range of ultra-soft vegan and cruelty free brushes for the whole face, so you can create a flawless makeup look; everything you need for a seamless application and blending of your favourite creams, powders and liquids. This set is absolutely gorgeous quality and is a brilliant range of brushes, especially for everyday use! It also comes with its own little leatherette bag to store them all away in.

Verdict?

This is probably one of the best subscription birthday boxes I have seen! It is the stuff that dreams are made of, I would never have guessed that there would be a stunning palette as well as a gorgeous brush set inside, I feel utterly spoiled! This is the fourth box I have had the pleasure of reviewing for the DBB team and each box has just got better and better and I have been totally blown away by each one! I never know what to expect from this box (in a good way!) it is definitely an unforgettable box!  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 ‘15BOXES.’ I have linked the website and social media handles below, go check them out!
