Wanderlust with Lookfantastic

This post contains affiliate links

If the current state of the world has filled you with an urge to travel and get out, look no further than this amazing beauty Bag from Lookfantastic. Yep that’s right this month instead of a bag we have this gorgeous white travel bag along with everything you need for summer skin, let’s dive in and unpack it!

The Summer Lookfantastic beauty bag £15

First is this absolutely gorgeous Illamasqua highlighter in a champagne colour , this will look amazing on all skin tones and is so beautifully pigmented without that glittery look. It’s a sheen of brilliant colour and I absolutely love it!

Next is a new product to me, the Starskin brand is one that’s been featured a lot but I’ve not seen this type of product before from them, it’s a Miracle Skin Mask pad. This is basically like an exfoliating pad but with a more serum based approach which is why it’s called a mask pad. You just sweep across the face and it replaces serum in your routine. It’s nice and I could see myself using them as part of an evening routine maybe.

I wasn’t expecting to like this next product at all, because I am not into fake tan. Main reason being that because of my psoriasis it just doesn’t work for me it always looks patchy and sticks to areas of my skin that are raised, which isn’t the tans fault. So when I saw this I didn’t realise at first it was a gradual tanning mist. However I did decide to give it a go as my face has been clear of psoriasis and I wanted to see what it was like. It actually is really subtle and for me I felt like I would use it every so often just for a bit of a tan glow. I imagine if you used it regularly it would build up more so I think it’s nice to have that option if you are into tanning products.

I love that Lookfantastic put in haircare items from time to time and Grow Gorgeous is a great brand. This spray is a anti-pollution leave in spray and it is to help protect your hair from any nasties. I did try this and my hair was incredibly soft afterward and my hair seemed to like it.

Elemis products are always a welcome fave in beauty boxes and this one is absolutely amazing. It’s a glow priming moisturiser and it’s just perfect for wearing if you want a no makeup day but just want a little bit of a glowy skin moment. It’s not too shimmery it’s just the right amount to give a little blur to your skin tone and it smells incredible.

Last of all is a Revlon lipstick in the shade Rose Wine. I think it’s more of an autumnal shade for me but it’s a really nice berry toned red and feels really nice on so I definitely think I will enjoy using it.

Lookfantastic have a range of subscriptions available here with a rolling subscription where you pay month by month as well as 3, 6 and 12 month subscriptions.

I’m currently subscribed on a monthly basis and pay £15 including postage and packaging for my box and always find this a great box with usually a skincare focus as well as some tools like brushes/ sponges ect.

What do you guys think? Is this a box you’d enjoy?

It is limited stock and they always tend to sell out fast so if this is a box that you’d be into get in quick and get yours today!

ASOS Buyers pick box – is it worth it?

If you’ve ever wanted to know the cult beauty products the professionals swear by, this is the box for you! Filled with the ASOS buyers ultimate summer picks this box is a must!

June’s ASOS box is surprisingly still available and I’m not sure if it’s because of the price increase? This box was £20 instead of the usual £12 but was it better value? Let’s run through and find out!

Bareminerals lipstick mini

First is a Bareminerals lipstick. It’s a mini size but I really like the shade and I sometimes do prefer the small size in a lipstick as I do prefer gloss and liquid lip products generally. It’s a lovely pink rose shade so it’s a nice everyday colour. Bareminerals is a brand I really like, I’ve been using their face powder and have previously used the lashtopia mascara from them which are both really nice products.

Cerave Smoothing Cream £12

Next we have CeraVe Smoothing cream a moisturising cream to help with rough or bumpy skin conditions like Keratosis Pilaris. This does have 0.5% salicylic acid which gently exfoliates the skin. Because of this it’s not one I can use as it really would irritate my psoriasis so I’ll be passing this on.

Indeed no acid pads £15.95

These indeed laboratories skin pads are all about exfoliating the skin to get clearer brighter skin and can be used morning and night. I’ve really enjoyed using these and have seen definite improvement in my skin texture, I will be re-purchasing these for sure!

Revolution Lift and Define Mascara £9
Ouai Detox Shampoo sample

Lift and Define mascara from Revolution I had not tried before. Described as a 5D mascara to lengthen, lift, define, stretch and volumise with just one coat- thats a lot! It’s a black mascara and it’s quite a creamy style formula. I really liked this and I think I probably would buy it again. I had been using Maybelline Sky High but I feel like I don’t get the volume in my lashes like I do with this.

I really like Ouai products and I’ve used quite a few now so I’m interested to see what this is like. The Ouai Detox shampoo is a sample size. Designed to deep clean hair and unblock clogged follicles, with a gentle formula suitable for all hair types. Apple cider vinegar helps strengthen weakened hair and improve lustre by lowering the pH levels of the hair and scalp. I’m hanging onto this until I need to do a clarifying wash on my hair but Ouai is a brand I really like and I use their curl creme and wave spray so I have no doubt this will be great!

Next is a Glamglow Supermud mini, this is 15g and priced at £16. This I’ve had before in another box and it’s brilliant for any blemishes, an ideal mask for treating any small areas. You just apply for 5-20 mins and then cleanse. I’ve had a few breakouts lately and this has been awesome at calming them down.

This Works Stress Check mood manager spray mini which is £15 for 35ml usually. I love these aromatherapy style sprays and this one has Ylang ylang, neroli and patchouli scents which are really relaxing. Created through fMRI brain imaging technology to help modify mood, reduce feelings of stress and restore a sense of calm to an agitated mind. You can mist it over skin, clothes, furnishings or bed linens to help keep your mind clear and positive. I like to use this in my office space and bedroom.

Elemis Pro-Collagen Marine Cream, priced at 15ml for £29.40 is our next item. I love this , it’s quite a rich cream and so I prefer to apply it at night. It aims to improve your skins firmness and elasticity. Elemis is one of those brands where I feel like you really get what you pay for, it’s such good quality and I always feel like I see results from using it.

Invisibobble are another brand which I love, these cord style ties especially, for not ruining your hair and getting tangled like others do in my hair! I was always sceptical before I tried them but they still hold your hair really well and you can also prevent headaches from tying your hair too tight with these. You get three in this pack for £5.99.

In total the full size and deluxe minis in the box cost £88.44 which is great value considering the cost of the box was only £20!

I’d definitely love it if ASOS did more special editions like this every so often, I love trying new products and even at £20 instead of £12 I still think it’s fantastic value for money.

Dreaming of paradise

Glossybox this month had a Dreaming of Paradise theme which was all about summer products to take you from pool to party. In my case it’s more like paddling pool to dinner as I don’t think it’s likely to be going abroad anytime soon. I’m just as happy with a sunny day and a BBQ in the garden to be fair and the weather lately has been so lovely, summer is definitely here!

Glossybox June 2021

First out of the box is Oui Cherie Lip Oil from The Beauty Crop in the shade Sacrebleu! Now, on first glance I was dubious about this as it explains it’s a pH changing lip oil so I wasn’t expecting much to be honest. However I was pleasantly surprised as it actually changed colour as I was applying and gave a really nice tinted berry colour. Now with it being a pH based product it should react differently on every person, it was a fun item to include and it is super moisturising and smells gorgeous.

Oui Cherie Lip Oil from The Beauty Crop £13

Next is a Vitamin C Face Scrub from Nip + Fab. I recently took part in the Glamour Big Beauty Call and Vitamin C is really being touted as the most beneficial and easy to use product for your skin. I’ve introduced the Nip+Fab Vitamin C toner recently (this was in one of my advent calendars) and loved the results so I was excited to try the face scrub. It’s a really nice product lovely smell and gentle on the skin. It’s designed to soften and cleanse as well as exfoliate the skin. I’m going to use this 1-2 times a week to give me a nice glowy skin!

Vitamin C Face Scrub from Nip + Fab

Also in this box is a full size Mitchell and Peach English Leaf Body oil. Last year we got a bath oil from this brand and I find their scents really strong. This oil has changed my mind though as it’s really light and fresh smelling. It’s a blend of citrus, coriander, basil, mint and floral oils, giving it a freshly cut grass scent. Got to say when I read it smells like cut grass I thought that was a bit weird! However I actually really like it, I guess it’ll be one of those marmite things- you’ll either love it or hate it!

Mitchell and Peach English Leaf Body oil £23

Another full size with a Micellar water from a Garnier. Although this is quite a basic product I was really pleased to get this in my box, it’s something I know I will use as I use reusable washable cotton pads and makeup cloths so this is ideal to use with those for more stubborn makeup but still gentle on the skin.

Garnier Micellar Cleansing Water £1.99

And finally a Christophe Robin Regenerating Hair Mask, I’ve actually had this before in a Lookfantastic box and it was soooo good for my hair! So I’m delighted to get another one, it literally leaves your hair so soft and you only have to leave it on for a few minutes, perfect if you don’t have loads of time. Also you only need a tiny bit to emulsify between your hands and apply so although this pot is small it really does last for ages. For anyone following Curly Girl method, this is an approved product you can use as well.

Christophe Robin Regenerating Mask with Prickly Pear (Deluxe mini size) £10.80

Julys sneak peek is a beautiful looking bronzing powder from KNDR worth £14. The July theme is Beauty Treasures which sounds lovely and I’m looking forward to seeing what products we get next!

I have a yearly subscription to Glossybox which costs 11.75 per month including postage and packaging. There are loads of different options if you wanted to sign up from a monthly rolling subscription to 3, 6 and 12 month plans like the one I do. I do have a referral code if you click here which will get you 20% off your first box.

Elements of Beauty with Lookfantastic

This post contains affiliate links

Just like that we are halfway through the year and, after a ropey start, it seems as though the world is slowly moving again. The start of a new month is marked for me by the arrival of my beauty boxes and Lookfantastic were first out of the gate this time!

The June Elements Lookfantastic box

There are 6 items in the box and this months theme is Elements, chosen in respect of World Environment Day and World Ocean Day which both take place in June.

The first item I came across is the Dr Lipp hydrating lip balm in it’s beautiful red packaging. I’ve used the sweet potato tint last year and really loved it. This one however is formulated with Red Radish pigment and gives a lovely red tint when applied. An ideal product for the summer months when you are relaxing in the garden and don’t want an overdone look.

Dr Lipp Red Radish Tint

Next we have an ESPA 24 hour Eye Moisturiser. I go through a lot of eye creams lately as it’s my main area of concern as I get older! This is lovely, as to be expected from ESPA really nice quality and definitely very hydrating. It has a range of essential oils including Evening primrose and Jojoba to boost the hydrating properties.

ESPA Eye Cream

I’ve had this next product in another beauty box and absolutely loved it so was excited to see it here again. It’s the Rituals, The Ritual of Jing mild body scrub. Firstly this smells amazing with sacred lotus and coconut oil it’s just a dreamy scent. Secondly it’s so incredibly gently on the skin but still manages to buff the dead skin cells and also manages to not dry out the skin at the same time.

Rituals The Ritual of Jing Body Scrub

Next is the So Eco Gentle Facial Buffer, which is meant to remove dead skin from the face. Personally I think it’s a little too harsh for my skin but I would use it on the body instead. So Eco is a really socially responsible company, they endeavour to create products that can be recycled and also have a mission to plant trees which offset their carbon footprint.

So Eco Gentle Facial Buffer

Next up is Philip Kingsleys Finishing Touch styling serum, this is packed in a bio plastic bottle made from sugarcane, making it totally recyclable and it’s also manufactured in a sustainable way. This is for application to lengths and ends of hair prior to blow drying to get a smoother sleeker finish to your hair.

Philip Kingsley Polishing Serum

Lastly we have a Balance Me product, Lightweight Milky Cleanser. This is really effective at removing makeup but also feels really gentle for sensitive skin thanks to the formula. It’s a gentle exfoliant with salicylic acid and willow bark, ideal for a first cleanse in the evening when you want to really get all of your makeup or SPF off.

Balance Me Cleansing Milk

And that’s this months box! The July sneek peek is an Elemis Superfood Glow Priming Moisturiser. Elemis is such a popular brand and so well liked for its formulas so I am looking forward to trying that.

Lookfantastic have a range of subscriptions available here with a rolling subscription where you pay month by month as well as 3, 6 and 12 month subscriptions. They have a fab offer for June where you can receive your first box for just £5 with code JUNEBB5! Valid until 30th June.

I’m currently subscribed on a monthly basis and pay £15 including postage and packaging for my box and always find this a great box with usually a skincare focus as well as some tools like brushes/ sponges ect.

What do you all think ? Anyone want to try it out for £5 for the June box with the above code?

Ethereal Beauty

This post contains affiliate links

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?

Woke up in Spring with Glossybox

April has usually brought with it blue skies and some sunshine as well as warmer temperatures. Although we also expect those April showers to occur I don’t think anyone, least of all me, was expecting snow forecasts and hailstones over the past week!

I’m cautiously optimistic that that’s behind us now and we can focus on some warmer weather coming our way! This months Glossybox has the theme of waking up in spring and some lovely little products to change up our makeup!

First of all is a product from Minus 417, Serenity Legend Hydrating Dead Sea Bath Salts. With minerals and salts to help your body retain moisture, Dead Sea salts are renowned for giving you soft smooth skin. I’ve used similar products a lot over the years for my psoriasis I and really like Dead Sea salts for relieving inflammation.

Minus 417 Serenity Legend Dead Sea Bath Salts Deluxe Mini 100g £2.17

Next is our sneak peek from last month, an eyeshadow quad from Sophia and Mabelle. This is a lovely little palette with four everyday shades with matte and shimmers. They’d be great for a simple natural eye look to just give a bit of a boost to your natural eye contour. This is full size and would cost £25 which seems pricy to me for a quad palette. The shadow itself has a nice texture and good pigment but I don’t know that I’d be happy paying £25 for 4 shadows. They are pretty nice when swatched and I can see myself definitely using this.

Another full size product included is the Feel Free Antioxidant Eye Contour cream. This is a lovely light formula and has a citrusy smell which isn’t too strong. Being an eye cream it’s main aim is to hydrate the delicate skin under your eye as well as brighten and balance your skin tone. I love getting eye creams in these boxes as it’s definitely an area I am focused on staying hydrated, it’s so important to use an eye cream to keep those fine lines at bay!

Feel Free Antioxidant Eye Contour Cream £4.77

Next is a liquid blush from DWTN Paris and while I love liquid and cream blush I will admit the colour of this put me off at first. It’s quite an orange toned red but it does blend out nicely. Just not too sure about it suiting my skin tone.

AHAVA mineral shower gel is our last product and this smells really nice. It says it has pomegranate and cherry blossom scent so definitely a nice one for the spring and summer. I think I will keep this one for when we hopefully get away for a little break in the summer, fingers crossed no more lockdowns.

Deluxe mini 25ml worth £4.49

May’s sneak peek is Rodial Dragon Blood eye masks which sounds interesting and the box itself has the theme “Let the sun shine” so I’m excited to see what else will be included! What did you think of this box?

I have a yearly subscription to Glossybox which costs 11.75 per month including postage and packaging. There are loads of different options if you wanted to sign up from a monthly rolling subscription to 3, 6 and 12 month plans like the one I do. I do have a referral code if you click here which will get you 20% off your first box.

ASOS 5 Steps of Skincare

This month the ASOS beauty box is one of their best yet with a 5 step skincare routine to get your best glowing skin!

£12 for all of this!

With 5 steps to put a spring in your skincare there’s everything from cleanser to SPF in this box with brands including Elemis, Sunday Riley and Caudalie. So let’s dive in !

So Step 1 is cleanser and this is the Elemis Pro-Collagen Marine Energising Cleanser. This turns from a gel into a cream and smells amazing. This is a full size and costs £42 to purchase. Elemis is a fab skincare brand and I’m loving this cleanser.

This is a full size £42

Step 2 is Exfoliator and for this we have an Alpha-H Micro Super Scrub. Alpha-H has been in the ASOS box before and I really like this scrub. It’s super gentle and makes a real difference to the texture of my skin.

Step 3 is Serum and this Oh K! Chok Chok Hydrating Serum mist is one of my favourites so I was really pleased to see this included! It’s packed with Hyaluronic acid and glycerin to give you gorgeous glowing skin.

This is a full size and costs £10

Step 4 is Moisturiser and is brought to us by Sunday Riley with their ICE Ceramide Moisturising Cream with ceramides and vitamin F to keep your skin super hydrated. This is a mini size and it is a really good moisturiser, my skin felt so good! It’s an expensive brand £60 for 50g but worth it if you are struggling with dry skin as this will sort it right out.

Finally we have Step 5 which is SPF from Caudalies face suncare in Factor 50. SPF is a key step in any skincare regimen and definitely something Im much more focused on than I used to be. SPF is key to preventing premature ageing via sun damage and I think we are all much more aware of this now. This is a really nice formula, lightweight and not sticky. Definitely a good everyday and a high factor which is really important.

Well this ASOS box caused lots of controversy with its release date! I’ve noticed the last 2 months that ASOS have been sending influencers the boxes to review on YouTube and this month they added a countdown to their Instagram. I like a lot of other people took it to mean it would be released at that time and it wasn’t. Following a message from ASOS via their Instagram they told everyone it would be released the following week. However they then released it the same evening and lots of people missed out. It’s a shame as it really is a fab box this month.

The box cost just £12 and with two full size products worth £52 it’s not hard to see why it sold out so quickly! Did you manage to grab one? Have you tried any of these products before ? I’d love to hear your comments !

Beauty beyond Boundaries

This months Lookfantastic theme is a great one with International Women’s Day approaching in March 8th.

The theme of Beauty beyond Boundaries is to encourage us to feel beautiful and ensure any flaws we think we have don’t define us. This years International Women’s day theme is Choose to Challenge and I think challenging the way we view and think about ourselves is a great way to celebrate this year. We’ve all at some point been way too hard on ourselves whether it’s our appearance, our work, whether we’ve been a good parent or spouse. But if the last year has taught me anything it’s that I’ve got to be much kinder to myself and give me a break, and I hope you all will too!

First we have AHAVA mineral mud soap which is for face and body and meant to cleanse without stripping your skin of moisture.

Next is a duel ended eyebrow brush from Brushworks. This has a angled brush at one end ideal for applying either cream or powder brow products. The other end is an angled spoolie brush, perfect for brushing through your product and giving the trendy fluffy brow look.

Then we have a Lottie London pencil eyeliner, this is a really nice formula and really glides onto the lid. It also has a sharpener built into the lid so you don’t have to remember to sharpen it.

One of the things I really love about the Lookfantastic box is that they often include different haircare products and this month has a Christophe Robin hair treatment which is ideal for dry or damaged hair. I like that with this you only need to leave it on for 2-3 mins so it’s not a long treatment and can be done while you have a shower.

First Aid Beauty is one of my favourite brands and I’ve actually used this product before! The facial radiance pads are amazing and something I really enjoy using. Basically they are to be used after you cleanse, you can use them daily, and act as a toner brightening and smoothing the skin. The thing I really like about these is they are able to be used on sensitive skin and make my skin look so clear.

Blossom and Bloom is a brand I’ve not used before and this is called their wonder balm. It’s a bit like the Dr Paw Paw original in texture and is a multi-use product so they recommend it for chapped lips and dry hands in particular. It smells amazing, like aromatherapy oils and has lavender, Shea butter and vitamin E. It also has anti-inflammatory properties, and the texture is really rich. I think I will use this at night as I think it will be lovely to apply before bed and have the scent lingering!

And finally the last product in my box is Polaar IceSource Ultra Moisturising Mask. I’ve used the micellar water from the same range and really enjoyed it. This mask is a cooling treatment for helping hydrate and leave skin refreshed. It’s a leave on moisturising mask so again I think this would be a lovely one to apply after a bath or shower in the evening and let work it’s magic overnight.

So this month everything was a mini or deluxe sample aside from the eyebrow brush but we did get 7 items this month, making each item cost just over £2 each which I still find great value.

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. If you got this box what did you think?

Self Care treats with Burts Bees

This post contains affiliate links.

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

I’d love to hear about any favourite products you have from Burts Bees ! Drop me a comment with any ones I should check out next!

Lookfantastic January 2021

Lookfantastic have had a mini makeover with a fresh look to the magazine in the box and packaging. I especially liked that the theme this month was Restoration, as I think after 2020 we could all use some of that! Instead of focusing on a new year, new me angle the focus is on products to make us feel confident, and give a moment of escape from the stresses of the world, and there are lots right now!

So first we have a hand mask! Something a bit different, I’ve tried one of these before from Seoulista and really liked it as it made my skin so soft and this was the same. Basically it’s a set of serum infused gloves that you place your hands in and then fasten the tabs around your wrist to keep in place. You leave it on for about 15 mins and then just massage any remaining serum into your hands. It’s like having a mini spa treatment at home and my hands really needed some tlc after all the cold weather we’ve been having! These are from Starskin and have Shea butter, goji Berry and macadamia nut and olive oil so smell amazing too.

Starskin Nourishing Hand Mask gloves £8.50

Next is a product from SVR which is a french brand. I’d not heard of this brand before but I was interested to try it and see if it’s a good moisturiser. It’s a face moisturiser for very dry and sensitive skin, so far so good! It can be used day and night and is a really nice texture. I’ve used it for a few days and it hasn’t irritated my skin at all and it really does help with any dry patches you might have.

SVR Intense Moisturising Cream £15

I do love a good hair mask and this one from Intelligent Haircare is an overnight one. It’s a deluxe mini size so if you’ve got long hair like me you’d only get one use out of this, shorter styles you’d likely get two maybe three. It’s a vegan formula and also free from parabens, sulphates and silicones- basically all the nasties you don’t want on your hair! Really easy to use, just run it through your hair and scalp and then tie it up. In the morning rinse and shampoo/condition as normal. This is a really lovely formula and my hair felt great afterward, it’s a bit messy and will leave your pillowcase messy but as you’d probably not do this often then I’d say it was worth the trouble.

Deluxe sample size (full size is 200ml and costs £25)

I got a few of these for Christmas and a blending sponge is always a welcome addition in subscription boxes for me. This is an eco friendly makeup sponge. These are great for applying liquid or cream face products and best used damp so it doesn’t absorb all your products.

So Eco Complexion sponge £6

I really like these lipsticks from Sleek and this is the shade Hellacious , a sort of autumnal brown with an orange hint. It’s a matte finish and lasts for ages.

Sleek Matte Me lip cream in shade Hellacious £4.99

Finally we have the Dr Botanicals cleansing bar in avocado and cucumber. I could smell this when I first opened the box and it is so lovely and fresh. You can use it on face and body and it has antibacterial properties to cleanse and purify your skin.

Dr Botanicals Cleansing Bar £19

So altogether this months box has a value of £53.49 !

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. If you got this box what did you think?

For me it’s a great box, I know I will use everything and it’s really nice to get some different items like the hand mask and very fitting for this time of year!
