“Leave a little sparkle wherever you go”
This month I had the pleasure of receiving the #LFHELLOBEAUTIFUL May Beauty Box* from Look Fantastic, to get me prepped and ready for a summer glow! Upon opening the box, I spotted the little info booklet that I loveee having a read of, because it has some serious lil’ mini magazine vibes to it. This one has all the deets about how to get that effortless, glowing skin – naturally.
As usual, this Look Fantastic Beauty Box came looking absolutely purrrfect, and they always seem to get it right in terms of colour and detail – yaaaas LF! The box is centred around unveiling that natural glow that you’re born with, and the bright fun packaging really reflects that. The box is a gorgeous turquoise shade with stunning metallic details that I can really appreciate – it’s such a beautiful box.
Psst… you also get a copy of this month’s Elle magazine with every beauty box!
REN WAKE WONDERFUL NIGHT-TIME FACIAL
This was the first item that I spotted, and I have got to be honest that I was a teeny bit disappointed. And that’s only because I already have this product! I do love this little overnight skin pick-me-up so it’s great to have a surplus amount to keep me going. However, the fun of a beauty box is to try out a few new bits so it didn’t have such a “wow” impact for me. This guy does exactly what he says – smooth over before hitting the hay, and wake up feeling radiant and glowing.
IOMA YOUTHFUL MOISTURE CREAM
There are two varieties of yummy IOMA products in this month’s box, and the Youthful Moisture Cream happened to be in mine. The alternative being the Optimum Moisture Cream, which I probably would have used a lot more as it’s more catered to my age/skin type. However, these 7 daily little pods of moisturising goodness promise to have your skin feeling smooth and healthy, and I am so up for that.
REVLON PROFESSIONAL UNIQ YOUNG COCONUT HAIR TREATMENT
I am so so so excited about this product – it’s unreal. It’s everything I look for in a haircare product and I can’t wait to start implementing it into my daily haircare routine. It’s a little spritz bottle filled with coconut scented oil that repairs dry and damaged hair fibres, whilst boosting volume and body. It also contains UVA and UVB filters, uh-huh honey.
I couldn’t believe my eyes when I set my sights on a full size hair brush inside the box – omg right? Its not the colour that I would go for (the colour you get is all down to chance) however, it’s a hair brush and I can deal. It’s worth a crazy £11.99 and it claims to glide through hair to smooth and detangle when your hair is wet – without snagging at all! I have the most stubbornly tangled hair, so I’ll have to give this one a thorough testing asap!
If you’re a sucker for beautiful trial size products – you will absolutely adore this mini cream pot from Vichy. Unfortunately it is for dry to very dry skin, and with my very oily skin in this weather I wont be reaching for this anytime soon. The product smells amazing, and has a very luxe appeal to it – so I’ll be keeping hold of this to remedy any dry patches on my skin after exposure to the sun.
DECLEOR INTENSIVE NUTRITION
This was another item that had 3 different options depending on which box you receive. I got this little trial sized Decleor Nourishing Cocoon Cream which contains Cranberry plant oils, and argan and avocado to nourish and enrich your tired skin. It sounds like a dream to me!
EVE LOM CLEANSER
This wasn’t described in the little booklet at all, so as far as I’m aware it’s an extra little sample product, and it’s something that’s got me pretty darn excited. It contains a sachet of liquid cleanser and a super cute muslin cloth to wipe away dirt and impurities – how cayooot!
This monthly box is valued at over £50.00 yet only puts you £15.00 out of pocket. For the amount of high quality products inside the box, I think that it’s a genuine bargain! Plus, I love that Look Fantastic give you the option to subscribe for one month only (so you only receive one box) which is great for beautybox commitment-phobics. However, the longer your subscription, the less the individual boxes cost – get innn.
Pssst, as an extra treat, LF have added 50 vouchers to random boxes, to win a bundle from Illamasqua worth over £110. Will you be one of the lucky ones?.
