This is LookFantastic’s May beauty box and the theme for this month is ‘Botanical.’ The products inside this box have been chosen to embrace the natural world, focusing mainly on plant power with no added ‘nasties’ like toxins to brighten up our beauty collections. So let’s see what products we have this month…
INSIDE THE BEAUTY BOX… 5 SKINCARE AND 1 BEAUTY
AVANT Ultimate Hyaluronic Acid Resurfacing Duo MoisturiserIf your a regular subscription box review reader of mine then you will know that I adore Avant products and receiving these in a box is a HUGE treat so I am thrilled to see this brand included in this months box. This is their anti-ageing moisturiser that has been formulated with Hyaluronic Acid, Shea Butter and Sweet Almond Oils. It will smooth and brighten the skins complexion aswell as tighten and firm it too. This is a 50ml bottle and retails for £100! Very pricey but that’s why it’s fabulous to receive in a beauty box. This is such a treat to receive and I am delighted with it.
KORRES Hydra-Biome Probiotic Superdose Face Mask This product is by the brand Korres and it’s their Hydra-Biome Probiotic Superdose face mask. This face mask is especially great for sensitive skin as it soothes, hydrates and cools the skin leaving it feeling pampered and nourished (it’s also suitable for all skin types too.) This face mask has intrigued me as it’s the first ever probiotic mask that gives anti-pollution protection, a time released hydration complex and also has been created with the superfood Greek Yoghurt aswell. I’m quite excited to use and see it’s results overall. We have been given a 20ml bottle which is worth £9.40. I love having a pampering session and indulging in a face mask so this one will be perfect for that.
BALANCE ME Hyaluronic Plumping Mist This is an interesting product as I’ve not come across one of these before it’s a Hyaluronic Plumping Mist by the brand BalanceMe. It is an award winning product that brightens the skin and is incredibly hydrating, instantly rejuvenating dry skin. This is in a 10ml bottle and retails for £10. For application it has a spray pump and the product is designed to replace a toner in your skincare routine. The product is infused with Hyaluronic Acid and has a blend of Pineapple, Bergamot and Chamomile Oils too. After I finish all of my current toner I will definitely be giving this product a go.
DR LIPP 100% Natural Moisturising Colour Lip Tint In Sweet Potato I have already tried this out as soon as I saw this in the box and let me tell you it is game changing for dry lips! I love Dr Lipp Lip Balms, I find them extremely nourishing and they actually do their job well of leaving lips super soft and hydrated (I’ve tried alot of lip balms before and many of them just don’t work and don’t do their job properly.)
This is a tinted lip balm that has been made with only 4 natural ingredients, it’s 100% natural and cruelty free which is perfect. The Sweet Potatoes in this formula is what gives the balm it’s tint and it’s super subtle and very pretty. (I’m not fond on coloured lip balms so for me this is perfect.) My lips were dry and slightly cracked (due to the changing of the weather) so I popped this on straight away when I received it and within an hour (totally honest) my lips were extremely smooth and soft and there was no dryness or cracks left. Literally like magic and after just one application! The balm itself is quite thick which is why it makes the lips so nourished, even though it is thick it honestly doesn’t feel sticky or heavy on the lips which I was extremely surprised by. This lip balm is in a small size which only includes 3ml of product and is worth £3. I wish that in this box it was included in the full size version but it’s so affordable anyway and works incredibly well that I will definitely be purchasing myself after trying this out. If your looking for a lip balm I would highly recommend this product!
MAGN!TONE LONDON Wipe Out Eco Friendly Microfibre Cleansing ClothI love reusable cleansing cloths, they are Eco friendly and extremely simple to use so it’s great to add another one to my collection as I use these daily. This microfibre cleansing cloth is by Magn!tone and is called Wipe Out. This cloth is in a light grey shade and is slightly bigger in size than their pink one that I own. These cleansing cloths work like magic they quickly remove all traces of makeup with just water! The microfibres in the cloth is what removes the makeup so well. They are also easy to wash too, you just pop it into the washing machine and can reuse the cloth thousands of times. Happy with this item and it retails for £10.
EYEKO Mini Eyebrow GelNever personally been a brow gel wearer, I find that my brows stay on well without any brow gel needed so not too interested in this product myself. But putting my personal preference aside this is Eyeko’s Mini Eyebrow Gel and is worth £10. This gel tames unruly eyebrows and provides brows with a long lasting hold with no stiffness or flakiness. It has a great formula including wonderful ingredients like Gingko Bilabo and Keratin (these will help to condition and thicken the hairs.) The brush itself is very small so will give a precise application.
Overall, the selection of products this month are fabulous. The total worth of this box comes to a massive £142.40!! That is a huge amount considering this box only cost me £13.00…what a bargain. I particularly love the Avant Ultimate Hyaluronic Acid Resurfacing Duo Moisturiser being included especially as it’s retail price is usually £100!! The Dr Lipp Lip Balm has been a wonderful product discovery for me as it works perfectly so I will be purchasing more of this in the future and the Cleansing Cloth I already use daily so it’s great to have this one as a back up. I loved all of the other products included too, the only one I’m not a fan of because I don’t use is the Brow Gel but apart from that the selection for me is spot on.
