I am so excited as my LookFantastic box arrived yesterday! What a lovely treat each month and this month is another box full of great products! For May’s box LookFantastic included products around the theme ‘Urban Beauty.’ They included skincare products to help keep skin feeling fresh in ‘city life’ environments and make-up that can be used whilst on commute.
INSIDE THE BEAUTY BOX… 4 SKINCARE, 1 BEAUTY AND 1 HAIRCARE
Just A Little Note – Every LookFantastic box comes with the latest edition of Elle Magazine which retails for £4.50. I haven’t photographed this because I want to show the products instead but wanted to let you know so you are aware that you would also receive this gift too!
POLAAR Northern Light Cream I have heard of the brand Polaar before and they have created some lovely products so I was very excited to see one included in this box. This is their Northern Light Cream which has alot going for it! It will help keep your complexion radiant and soothed. It includes the ingredient Siberian Olive Tree, which is a shrub rich in 108 Bioactive elements and has a high concentration of Vitamin C. The cream also includes 100% natural polar berry extracts and has anti-oxidant properties which protects the skin from the impact of pollution. This cream is a day cream for normal to dry skin but for a combination complexion it should be used as a night time moisturiser. It retails for £17.50. I can’t wait to apply this and try it out.
AVANT SKINCARE 8 Hour Anti-Oxidising Retexturing Hyaluronic Facial Serum Wow, wow, wow, how lucky to receive a product from AVANT SKINCARE! This is their facial serum which is worth £89! I love Avant products so I can’t wait to try this one out! This is an intensive serum which helps to protect your skin from external aggressors whilst also helping signs of ageing. It’s a hydrating serum which will leave the skin feeling moisturised and radiant. It contains Hyaluronic Acid which moisturises the skin and plumps it’s complexion and also contains Lipoic Acid which helps improve the skin’s texture making the skin barrier stronger. For a more expensive skincare product it will be interesting to see what difference this makes to my overall facial skin health.
MINETAN 3 In 1 Gradual Tan LotionI’m not the biggest fan of gradual tan lotion, only because I fake tan weekly so the gradual tans never really match my fake tan colour and on my face I just use foundation to match it instead. However, it might be a nice product to receive for someone who wants a more gradual and natural looking glow tan. It apparently has a non sticky formula and the lotion builds up to a natural looking glow. It includes naturally derived tanning agents and Multivitamins and also Aloe Vera, so it will keep your skin moisturised at the same time. It retails for £5.99.
SKINCHEMISTS Rose Illuminating Glow Hydrogel Eye PadsI love an under-eye mask! For me it feels luxurious to include them in an at home pamper session. This one retail for £6.99. The gel pads are enriched with Hyaluronic Acid which is super hydrating and also contains antioxidants too that will help to tone, lift and brighten the under eye area. They hydrate and refresh the skin underneath the eyes and is a perfect pick me up for tired eyes or for helping with fine lines and wrinkles. I can’t wait to use this one pamper evening.
MELLOW Gel Lips Pencil – Shade Aria I haven’t ever heard of the brand MELLOW before but I love a lip pencil and it’s in a gorgeous shade! This is a soft, nude gel lip pencil which helps to define your lips and has a matte finish. It apparently is long wearing and is transfer proof with a creamy base for easier application. It retails for £10.50. The shade is stunning and totally one that I would wear, it’s called Aria. It is also cruelty and paraben free.
WELLA PROFESSIONALS Invigo Nutri-Enrich Deep Nourishing MaskI love a hair mask so happy that this box has included one also. This hair mask is by Wella Professionals and retails for just £2.78. Apparently it includes Wella’s Nutri-Enrich Blend Complex which helps to turn dry and damaged locks into more nourished ones. The mask contains Vitamin E which helps to hydrate the hair and the mask helps to protect hair from frizz also. It will be interesting to see the results of this as it is pretty cheap for a hair mask.
Overall I love the products in this box as usual! I’ve been very impressed with the past LookFantastic boxes as the products they include have been so spot on! It was lovely to see a varied selection of products from skincare, beauty and to haircare in this box. The Avant Serum was hands down my favourite product of the box however, I also loved Skinchemists Gel Eye Pads and the Polaar Northern Light Cream. Did you receive LookFantastic’s May Beauty Box? If you did let me know down in the comments below your thoughts on it! I would also love to hear from you all (whether you got the box or not) what your favourite product is overall.
