Discovered Beauty Box Review By Nazia – December 2020

Thank you to the lovely Discovered Beauty Box team for sending their wonderful boxes for me to review over the past six months, it has been a pleasure as these boxes have been an absolute delight. They’re so different from anything else I’ve seen on the market and each box has been consistently well thought through and put together. I have never been disappointed with the contents and it’s been lovely discovering new brands and products.

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. This month’s box features a boxful of brands that I’d either not heard of or used before. I’m always excited to discover something new and to find products that work for me so I couldn’t wait to get stuck in!

Skin Alchemists – The Chocolate Cove

As many of you will already know I am a scrub addict, so I couldn’t wait to test this out. This scrub is absolutely divine, it has delicate aromatic notes of cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg which smell beautiful and lots of skin loving ingredients that leave your skin feeling luxurious smooth and silky! It exfoliates, nourishes and hydrates skin needing some TLC without being too harsh or abrasive. It gently helps to buff away dead skin leaving it sumptuously soft and radiant-looking: the perfect pampering treatment for skin!

Aquamarina Beauty Activated Charcoal Cleanser

This product cleanses away dirt and impurities and helps unclog pores. This foaming face wash has a silky-soft clay texture that is gentle enough for all skin types. It leaves skin feeling refreshed, soft and looking mattified without drying it out, I absolutely love it. I use it every night and most mornings and I haven’t had any spots since. My skin feels so much softer and I have already noticed a difference in my pores.

Skin Alchemists – Seasonal Soap Bar Set

This set includes two trial size seasonal release Artisan soap bars: Dirty Chai and Eggnog. Dirty chai is strongly scented with spices of nutmeg, cinnamon and cardamom, Eggnog is scented with cinnamon, nutmeg and cloves and is my favourite of the two. They deeply hydrate, nourish and soften the face, body and hands whilst awakening the senses and uplifting your mood.

Skin Alchemists – Sesenne Rejuvenating Facial Elixir

This facial elixir hydrates skin leaving it feeling soft, balanced, revitalised, plump and radiant with just a few drops. I think this oil is simply lovely, very light, easily absorbed and you only need use a few drops to cover your whole face and neck and it also smells delightfully floral. I like that the glass bottle can easily be recycled and the pipette dropper is easy to use which means you can dispense the desired amount of drops easily and without waste. I really like how radiant and healthy my skin has looked after using it

Zanzi Beauty – Zuri Eyeshadow Palette

This is a new brand for me, which is partly the fun of receiving subscription boxes. Featuring a mix of bold, warm tones and shimmers, the palette is perfect for creating sultry and chic looks. I’m not very brave with trying bold bright colours, but this may be the perfect opportunity to experiment with colours that I wouldn’t usually wear. The shades are pretty pigmented and apply quite easily to the eye, the shimmers are definitely my favourite and I really like the attractive packaging it comes in.

Verdict?

What a wonderful box to end the year with! I can say, hand on heart that these boxes are truly my favourite thing to receive in the post. With so much doom and gloom surrounding us this past year it’s been lovely receiving something that genuinely puts a smile on my face and takes me to a happy place and for a moment forget about my worries. They also feature products that I’ve not seen in other subscription boxes so it’s very refreshing to not receive repeat items! 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!
