Ethereal Beauty

This months Lookfantastic box has an ethereal theme with inspiration from the outdoors, sunsets and the coming summer months. There are 6 products this month plus an extra so 7 things in total. I really love the Lookfantastic box as it’s usually focused on skincare and I really enjoy trying new products.

£15 for the May Lookfantastic box

First up we have a hydrating gel from Comfort Zone, this item replaced the sneak peek from last month which was meant to be an Espa product. It seems there was a supply issue as this will now be included in the June box. This cream has moringa oil to help with inflammation and clearer skin.

Mini size the full size of this product is £47 for 200ml

Next is a peeling mask from ECooking with lactic and glycolic acid to help with tightening and smoothing your skin. Not gonna lie I feel a bit freaked out that the first thing on there says “don’t panic if your skin turns red”! It doesn’t look like the type of mask I would use as I worry it would flare my psoriasis so I will probably pass this on.

Also this month we have a Dr Botanicals kiwi eye serum to support a reduction in the signs of ageing. I love trying different eye products and it’s an area of my skincare I’m really focused on especially keeping it hydrated. This is really lightweight and absorbed nicely so I can see this becoming a new favourite!

Full size £19.99

Next is a simple one but something I’ve talked about before on this blog, a Burts Bees lip balm. The lip balm is a staple product from Burts Bees and this one is cucumber and mint which smells amazing. I absolutely love their lip balms as they are so hydrating so I’m really pleased to have gotten one here.

Full size £4.99

A new one for me is this silicone bristle pad from the Vintage Cosmetics Company. This is designed to be used with your cleanser to help remove any dead skin cells. I used this and definitely felt a difference in the smoothness of my skin and this would be really handy if I were having a psoriasis flare up as it’s often difficult to find gentle face scrubs.

A 3 pack of these pads are £6.99

The last item included this month is Stress Check hand cream from This Works. A really nice formula with Shea butter and has a nice lavender scent and definitely something we all need with hand washing and sanitising being so important right now.

This is a mini size, the full size is £10 to purchase

An additional item included was a hand sanitiser from L’Oréal Paris which is specially formulated to dry within 30 seconds and also contains glycerin to combat the drying feeling you get from other hand gels. A nice little extra and again great for these times we find ourselves in as I know a handgel is always in my bag now.

Full size £2.69

Lookfantastic have a range of subscriptions available here

I’m currently subscribed on a monthly basis and pay £15 inc postage and packaging for my box. My favourite products this month are definitely the Dr Botanicals serum and the Burts Bees balm, both nicely scented and really effective.

What about you guys what do you think of this box?

Self Care treats with Burts Bees

If lockdown has taught me anything its that making time for some self-care is so important. Self-care doesnt have to be a massive ritual it can be as simple as taking the time to get a few products in your life you really enjoy and using them regularly. Burts Bees is one of my favourite brands for lip balm and their hand salve is a real life saver when your skin gets as dry as mine does!

The cold snowy weather has really been drying out my skin and its products like these which use natural ingredients which make all the difference. On average the product range is 99% natural but over half of the products are 100% natural! They have fab gifts if you have someone with a birthday coming up. The Trio Tin Gift Set is my pick as its got my favourite lip balm included Pomegranate which gives you a hint of colour as well as keeping your lips in tip top condition.

Burts Bees has a fab offer running from now until 31st Jan for free gifts with purchase! Spend £15 to get free Cleansing Towelettes with your purchase or spend £20 to receive the towelettes AND a free lip balm! Shop the offer here
