Birchbox isn’t the only beauty box celebrating it’s birthday this month as the Look Fantastic box turns one! One year ago, the uh-mazing beauty site that is Look Fantastic launched their equally wonderful beauty box for us addicts who like to try out new products before forking out on the full size versions. I haven’t been buying the boxes for that long, I only ordered my first box back in February (if you want to have a read of that review, you can here) and each month I tell myself that it will be the last box I buy for a while because of the need to save money but once the next pre-order comes around, I can’t resist. This box is just filled with so many beauty treats each month!
This month’s box (still available to buy!) is a little different from the usual boxes. If you buy the boxes or have read posts on past editions, you’ll know the box is usually plain black with the Look Fantastic logo on it. However this month’s features a lovely confetti design on a white background and I actually prefer this. Also not forgetting the pretty tiffany blue like tissue paper inside which I love! The box is a teeny bit bigger too and contains 8 products this time round instead of the usual 6. So here is what was inside!
Starting with the products from one of my favourite skincare brands, Caudalie. I have tried two products from their Vinoperfect line, the serum and tinted moisturiser which I absolutely adore. So I’m quite excited to try these two products from the Vinosource line next. The Vinosource line is said to be ‘care for sensitive skin’ and is perfect for me as I can suffer from sensitivity now and then. The first product is the Moisturizing Sorbet which is described as a ‘sensitive skin saviour’, the Moisturizing Sorbet has an immediate and long lasting calming and soothing effect on the skin. It is said to reactivate skins hydration mechanisms and restore it’s water reserves. The other Caudalie product in the box is the S.O.S Thirst Quenching Serum which is perfect timing as I’ve just finished my Vinoperfect Radiance serum. This serum is lightweight, oil free and has a fast absorbing formula to capture and diffuse water deep within to restore skins moisture balance and leave it feeling refreshed, hydrated and soft.
Another skincare item included is the Fabulous Foaming Face Wash from Bliss. A 2-in-1 cleanser and exfoliator that is enriched with rose hips, chamomile and passion flower, it carefully buffs away dead skin cells whilst also removing make up and dirt leaving your skin feeling soft and fresh.
The last skincare item is from Codage Paris. A brand I’ve not yet heard of, I initially thought this was a body exfoliator when it is in fact a facial exfoliator. The Codage Creme Gommante Scrubbing Cream is a rich and soothing emulsion made from fine rice particles enabling optimal facial exfoliation. This can be used on any skin type, even sensitive. This cream eliminates impurities and dead skin cells whilst leaving your complexion smooth, even and glowing. I really can’t wait to try this out!
With my upcoming holiday, I’m going to try and attempt to fake tan so the Monu Tanworx Tan Maintainer was a product I was happy to receive. The Tanworx Self Tanning Lotion was included in May’s box and was the product I was thinking of using to tan for my holiday so this is great timing! The Tanworx Tan Maintainer is a moisturiser that works to maintain your tan making it last that bit longer. Formulated with carrot oil, coconut oil and sunflower oil to moisturise the skin plus hyaluronic acid and seaweed. It’s no surprise with these ingredients that it smells lush..
The last few are all hair products and the first two are a shampoo and conditioner duo from Sebastian Professional Penetraitt. This duo is specially formulated to protect over styled, stressed and chemically treated hair and is formulated with an active rescue system which penetrates deep into the hair structure to repair hair and restore it’s natural health and vitality.
The last product which also happened to be the first to catch my eye due to it’s glass bottle is the Phyto Phytokeratine Extreme Cream. Developed for ultra damaged, dry and brittle hair, this is a leave in cream designed to nourish and repair hair. It also provides heat protection to prevent further breakage and split ends whilst also shielding humidity for frizz free locks.
This birthday edition beauty box from Look Fantastic is most definitely one of their best that I’ve received however I do feel at least one make up item would of been a nice edition, this box does seem to be featuring less make up which is a little disappointing!
