Lookfantastic November 2020

This month Lookfantastic have a ‘Firecracker’ theme, perfect as the dark nights start to draw in! I love the quote inside the box lid pictured below.

There are 6 products this month and also a little extra treat in the form of a Jimmy Choo perfume sample.

First is a Philip Kingsley Pure Colour Frizz Fighting gloss. I’ve used a couple of Philip Kingsley products before and really like this one. You apply to your hair when towel dried and it acts as a heat protector as well as maintaining your colour.

Next is This Works Perfect Legs Skin Miracle. This is a tinted serum to give you a little glow to your legs or anywhere else on the body you want to add a little hint of colour to. This is probably not one for me as anything tinted like this tends to stick to my psoriasis.

I was so pleased to get this next product as I had run out of my usual micellar water! This one is Polaar Ice Pure with artic cotton and is great at removing mascara! I tend to use micellar as my first cleanse and then follow up with a face wash before applying my skincare.

Naobay Detox Oxygen Light Cream was the sneak peek last month and is a day cream with green tea and aloe Vera to help protect the skin. I think this is a really lovely day cream and sits well under makeup as well.

Next is a Lord and Berry Eye pencil in a bronze shade, I really love the colour and it’s very creamy so blends out nicely. This will be fab for some autumnal bronze eyeshadow looks.

Finally this is my favourite item in the box, Nails Inc. Polish in the shade All Fired Up – Portland Square. It’s a orange toned red and ideal for the box firecracker theme. I really love Nails Inc polish and this colour is definitely one I might have chosen myself so i am really pleased.

All of the items this month seem to be on the smaller size and we didn’t get a price list in the booklet. However I still feel it’s good value for £15 inc postage as each item costs just £2.50. It’s like getting a little beauty pick and mix this month and I am not mad at it! The sneak peek for next month is an Avant eye cream, I love Avant products so I am sure this will be my favourite item in next month last box. Anything that aims to prevent wrinkles is definitely up my street!

If you got this box what did you think? Would you have preferred more full size items and less of the smaller ones?

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.

ASOS Ultimate Haircare Box

Well, this box was an almost immediate sellout! The ASOS face and body boxes are released each month around the 1st of the month and as it’s not a subscription box, you don’t really get any notification. I usually check the website a few times during the day to make sure I grab one when I see it but this time I very nearly missed out! It had actually sold out by the time I got there and amazingly I managed to get one later in the day as someone must have not checked it out.

This month is all about hair and it’s billed as the “Ultimate Haircare Routine” with some fab products included for just £12!

First is the Philip Kingsley Elasticizer treatment which strengthens and adds bounce. This is a good sample size and the full size is usually £19. I really liked this as it didn’t leave my hair greasy afterward like some deep conditioners can.

Next up is a full sized scalp scrub from The Hair Boss with an amazing tea tree scent. I love scalp scrubs to help with my psoriasis on my head and this was really nice, didn’t sting or irritate so it’s a winner for me.

Then there is a duo from Mane ‘n Tail, a shampoo and conditioner for the all important cleanse. Originally formulated for horses, hence the name!, this has achieved cult status and my hair definitely felt softer and silky after using. These were a sample size duo but a decent size to be able to get a few uses out of and see how you like the product.

Then another full size in Olaplex No 6 Bond Smoother, a leave-in cream for repairing and strengthening hair. A hairdresser favourite this is an amazing inclusion in the box especially as it’s £26 for the full size!

Last we have another product which receives rave reviews Invisible Hair Oil from Bumble and Bumble ideal for dry hair in need of shine. This reminds me of the VO5 hot oils from when I was younger.

This box was amazing value considering the two full size products alone come to £33.99! I am so pleased I managed to grab one!

Would love to know your thoughts on this one and whether you’ve used any of the products here ?
