Eeeeek I cannot contain my excitement whilst writing this post… I am super excited to share with you all my first ever LookFantastic Beauty Box Review!!
As my regular readers will know I love a good subscription box. There’s no better mid month boost than receiving a gorgeous bundle of beauty treats each month (spoiling myself I know hehe.) For those of you who don’t know, monthly I review the Glossybox subscription box and I also review Moi-Meme too which is a Quarterly subscription box. I enjoy writing reviews of the contents of the boxes when they arrive so my only excuse as to why I have now signed up to another one is…to share it with you all on my blog!
All jokes aside I obviously subscribed to the LookFantastic Beauty Box because I have always wanted to try this box out. I have seen many of their past boxes and fell in love with the amazing variety of products they had inside. So I thought why not add another beauty box review to my blog and here it is…My first one for the LookFantastic Beauty Box. I hope you enjoy this and my future regular monthly box opening!
Before I write about the individual products I just had to add that LookFantastic include an Elle Magazine (Worth £4.50) inside each of their box’s and they also have a fabulous booklet packed full of detailed information about the box’s products, tips on how to use them and some other sections on various beauty and skincare bits n bobs. It definitely makes the box feel more high end having a good quality booklet included!
INSIDE THE BEAUTY BOX… 5 SKINCARE AND 1 BEAUTY
MORPHE Mini Highlighter (Shade SPARK) Anyone who knows me knows that I love a blinding highlighter so of course I was thrilled to see a powder highlighter in the box! This one is by MORPHE and is in the shade Spark. It is a gorgeous highlighter that is lovely and golden. It is a very bendable highlighter and is smooth upon application. It does have a pretty shine to it and is well pigmented however it isn’t a blinding highlighter so is a good one to use for an everyday subtle, casual look. The shade of this though is gorgeous and really reminds me of beautiful sun kissed, golden glow skin. It retails for £7.50 which is a brilliant price for what you get. It would also look so beautiful as an eyeshadow I think.
RITUALS ‘The ritual of Sakura’ Soothing Hand Balm I love RITUALS products so I was super excited that LookFantastic included a product of theirs in this box. This is their Cherry Blossom and Rice Milk soothing hand balm. It is a 70ml size and worth £9.90. This smells absolutely incredible, it’s not too over powering and is more subtle but you can definitely notice a gentle refreshing scent once applied. The consistency of the cream is quite thick and luxurious and luckily doesn’t leave any stickiness on the skin. It relieves dry and tired hands and soothes the delicate skin. The balm also includes Shea Butter which is incredibly moisturising!
OMOROVICZA Cleansing Foam Another great brand to include! This is a cleansing foam from OMOROVICZA. It retails for £18 for their travel size bottle containing 30ml. I love that this cleansing foam has no harmful sulphates included in the ingredients and it also contains White Lupin which energises the skin and Copper Gluconate which detoxify’s it. This cleanser removes makeup and also skin impurities, leaving it looking clear and feeling fresh. I cannot wait to try it out!
MADARA SMART Anti-Pollution Charcoal And Mud Repair Mask I haven’t tried a charcoal face mask out before but it has been on my list of what I want to try out as I hear it has many benefits! So I love that I can now try a charcoal face mask out… This is an anti-pollution Charcoal and Mud Repair Mask. It is packed full of antioxidants, essential minerals and vitamins. The Charcoal and Black Northern Mud helps draw out the dirt from the skin and impurities and pollution build up… leaving the skin radiant and refreshed. Basically it does everything that I personally look for in a face mask! I am super excited to try this product out. We received a 12.5ml size bottle which I think retails at that size for about £5. Their 60ml bottle retails for £27.
THE ORDINARY Hyaluronic Acid 2% + B5 Hydration Support FormulaThis is a perfect product to add to my skincare routine for the changing of the seasons. This is a hydrating serum with an intense moisture boost! It is packed full of Hyaluronic Acid which will leave skin plump, smooth but most importantly super hydrated. It is a 30ml bottle and retails for an affordable price at just £5.90. This is the perfect way to lock in a good amount of moisture before adding a day or night cream to the face. I love that it has an easy dispenser so I can just plop a few drops into my hand to warm up and then apply…nice and mess free!
EOS Lip Balm I love the shape and design of this Lip balm it is very unique, and it also is the perfect lip balm to carry around as a handbag essential! EOS do other scents in this lip balm… I received the scent Strawberry. It is enriched with Shea Butter and different conditioning oils to nourish and soften your lips. It is also hypoallergenic and is certified 100% Organic and Natural. The round dome of balm really glides on well during application and instantly soothes dry and chapped lips. I am pleased with this product and would recommend to others as it’s not horrible and sticky and the strawberry smells delicious! It retails for £6.50.
Overall, this box is FABULOUS! I cannot believe how many wonderful brands were included in this box! LookFantastic has done an incredible job on picking out the products for this month. This box was very skincare heavy which I personally loved but some people may prefer abit more variety in product choice. However, I loved it as all the skincare was different… A cleanser, a serum, a face mask, a lip balm and a hand cream… A lovely bunch of much needed skincare goodies I personally think. I am so glad that I have subscribed to LookFantastic on such a brilliant box month and I cannot wait to review more of their boxes for you all!
I would love to know if you are a subscriber to LookFantastic yourself and what your thoughts on this box was? If your not a subscriber I would still love to know what product you loved the most out of this selection so let me know down in the comments!
