Discovered Beauty Box Review by Nazia – January 2021

The beginning of the year is always a little depressing, and with lockdown 3.0 currently in effect the general mood seems to be pretty low all around. So when my DBB box landed on my door it really brightened up my day, it’s the only box that really stirs some real excitement for me so a big thank you to the DBB family for sending me this box.

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 which I really appreciate as it adds that extra personal touch.

Nursem Caring Hand Cream

With the constant hand washing and sanitising that we are currently required to do, my hands have become very dry and often cracked. This hand cream is hands down one of the best I’ve used to soothe my poor hands, they’ve gone from being always dry to effectively feeling soft and nourished! It has an unusual scent which I wasn’t too keen on but thankfully that wasn’t too strong and because of the great difference it’s made to my hands I was happy to overlook this. A small amount used little and often throughout the day will keep your hands protected and well-conditioned!

Fodilicious Cocoa Crunch Cookie Buttons

This pack of mini cookies looks so tempting; it contains wholesome plant-based ingredients, no refined sugars, additives or preservatives and is only 94 calories per pack! They’re deliciously crunchy and tasty, so good in fact that I ate the whole pack in one sitting!

Kathy Sue-Ann’s Youthful Glow Face Mask Powder

I love a good face mask so although I’d not heard of this brand, I was excited to try it out as it contains some lovely natural ingredients. I like that this mask can be used in two ways, as a mask to detoxify and tighten the skin or as a gentle exfoliator to buff and brighten dull tired skin. Really impressed how well this worked after just one use! I definitely felt like it drew out impurities as my skin looks much fresher and more illuminated, very pleased with the results.

Bubble T Cosmetics Winter Berries Bath Bomb Fizzer

Every now and again I like to take a nice long relaxing bath to wash away the days stress. This bath fizzer was the perfect excuse to sneak away and have some time to myself. It will fill your bath tub with fizzing whizzing colour and fragrance, perfect for unwinding after a long week or for a mid-week recharge.

Dr Botanicals Coco Noir Time Reverse Facial Serum

I am partial to a facial serum and this serum is made with all-natural skin loving ingredients including Geranium flower oil for firming and plumping, sea buckthorn oil for hydration, and neroli oil for reducing blemishes and evening out skin tone. The first thing I noticed was the delightful coconut scent which I really like. The serum is lightweight and melts evenly into the skin without being greasy or heavy and leaves your skin feeling deeply hydrated, soft and radiant.

Caleno Light & Zesty Tropical Non-Alcoholic Spirit

A non-alcoholic light and zesty blend of tropical, citrus and spice botanicals, containing golden inca berry. Deliciously refreshing with hints of spice and a citrusy zing. Enjoy a little bit of pleasure without the hangover.

Verdict?

The important question to ask is would I sub to this box? And the answer is absolutely 1000% yes! I’d like to say that I am absolutely thrilled with the products that have been chosen for me, I couldn’t have done a better job myself! This subscription box does not disappoint and each month I eagerly look forward to my DBB delivery. The products varies from beauty, skin care, make up, lifestyle and tools, so you’re guaranteed to love this 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!
