Discovered Beauty Box Review By Nazia – November 2020

A huge thank you to the extraordinary DBB team for sending me another of their boxes to review! This subscription box is the one I am always most excited to receive because what could be better than receiving a box full of wonderful surprises?! The past boxes I have reviewed have all been pretty amazing so I have high expectations of this month’s box.

Check out my live unboxing of this stunning box 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 which I really appreciate as it adds that extra personal touch and a contents card detailing the products within.

Love Absolute Deep Ocean Facial Mud Bar

This mud bar is amazing, it’s made with organic ingredients and the world’s purest sea mud which leaves skin feeling beautifully clean and revitalised! Being a healthcare worker for the NHS I have to wear a mask while at work, which is causing my skin to break out. This mud bar is doing wonders for my skin, it’s clearing out my pores preventing build up which means less clogged pores and spots! It’s plastic free and packaged in a cute little travel tin to keep it dry which is super handy and it smells gorgeous too.

Curl Flo

This is my first time trying out this brand, and I received not one but four products which include a Green Tea and Organic Lemongrass Shampoo, Avocado and Organic Lemongrass Conditioner, Mango Butter Deep Conditioner and Styling Gel! I am very picky when it comes to hair products as in the past new products have left my hair feeling greasy and limp so I was slightly apprehensive about trying these out. Well I had nothing to worry about, these products contain nourishing ingredients which help to detangle and hydrate my hair, leaving it feeling silky and shiny. There are no sulphates, parabens or silicones meaning that my hair is not left weighed down and flat and the great thing about this range is that it’s suitable for all hair types. I wasn’t keen on the smell of these products but with the results I achieved this is something I can overlook.

Wild Tree Skincare Brightening Body Scrub

As most people already know I am a huge scrub addict! I have a big collection of different ones so I was really looking forward to using this brand, as it’s not one I’ve used before. I love it! It exfoliates while gently removing dead skin, which leaves your skin looking and feeling radiant and silky soft while also helping to boost hydration.

Bumble Zest Rosemary, Thyme & Lavender Sparking Water

One of the extra items in this box this month which is delightfully light and refreshing. If you enjoy herbal tasting drinks that have a little zing in them then this is for you! It’s made with natural ingredients sourced for their functional properties, and boasts a range of health benefits.

I Heart Revolution Parental Advisory Pandemonium Eye Palette

This beautiful palette is so versatile, it contains everyday nude shades plus some amazing pops of colour. The nude shades are very pigmented and easy to blend, and the metallic shades are gorgeously vibrant, I find the best way to make them really stand out is to apply with a slightly damp brush. This is the perfect palette to create both understated daytime looks as well as sultry party vibe looks! I love the multitone chrome case it is enclosed in too, it’s just so pretty.

Verdict?

This box is an absolute game changer, as it not only caters for woman of all colours but contains products suitable for all skin types and hair types, something that is lacking in many other subscription boxes! I have tanned skin, and I can’t tell you the times I’ve received products that are not suitable for me. It can be very disheartening when your beauty profile is disregarded and you are sent items you won’t use like tanning products and bronzer. This box is refreshingly different, it takes into account all our needs and you can see that so much thought goes into preparing each box with items that suit us all! 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!
