June #LookFantastic Beauty Box

Archive, Beauty Boxes, Blogger Reviews, Events, Covid- 19 Week Twelve, Covid-19 Lockdown, Make Up, Beauty, Skincare

I say box but actually this month it’s NOT a box, and there’s no little booklet to explain the items instead, due to the world’s crisis, they are making all beauty edits digital for the foreseeable future.

So this month we got a strong turquoise plastic bag, which in line with their theme staycation is perfect. A decent sized wash bag that can be used on any holiday. The colour is a perfect summer colour.

Josh Wood Colour Everything Mask (30ml) – worth £6

Designed for use on every shade of hair, this hair mask has been created to lock-in colour, add shine, hydrate and deeply condition. It’s the perfect ‘does-it-all’ treatment.

* Once I dye my hair purple again, I’m going to try this out

Glov Rainbow Drop Brush – worth £10

Perfect for use on both wet and dry hair, this Glov brush glides through your hair without pulling or tugging. Palm-sized and great to fit in your handbag, use throughout the day to detangle your locks.

*Worth nothing that for arthritis sufferers like me, that it’s easier to hold than conventional brushes.

Polaar Very High Protection Sun Cream SPF50+ (20ml) – worth £13.44

Lightweight and non-greasy in texture, this Polaar sun cream applies easily, sinks into the skin quickly and offers strong protection against harmful sun damage.

* Shame it’s raining now, but definitely worth keeping aside for sunny days.

Ultrasun SPF30 Lip Protect – worth £8

Simultaneously reducing inflammation and moisturising any dryness, this Ultrasun lip balm is designed specifically to protect your pout from the elements.

* I feel this could be used on my Tattoo for extra protection, and ears or nose for added spf.

Molton Brown Coastal Cypress & Sea Fennel Bath and Shower Gel (100ml) – worth £10

This luxurious bodywash will leave your skin feeling fresh, pampered and smelling amazing. Uniquely and delicately scented with Sea Fennel and Cypress, your body will feel nourished, moisturised and revitalised in equal measures.

* Molton Brown is also a perfect pamper, reminds me of holidays as I usually take them with us.

Shangpree Aroma Blend Calming/Moisture Mask (worth £2.50) OR OhK! Jeju Island Hydrogel Mask (worth £6)

In this month’s limited-edition travel bag find a sheet-mask from spa and skincare experts Shangpree, or cruelty-free Korean brand Oh! K. These masks will leave you with a glowing, softer, and more hydrated complexion after just one use.

* I got Aroma Blend with Rosewood oil, Ylang Ylang oil and Rosa Damascena Flower Water.

No sneak peek for next month, so that’s a shame. Pretty impressed with this months box.

March #LookFantastic Beauty Box

Beauty Boxes, Blogger Reviews, Events, Covid-19 Lockdown, Covid-19 Week One, Make Up, Beauty, Skincare

Before the world changed, I decided to go back to my subscription boxes, and obviously I returned to Look Fantastic as I’ve always found the right mix of skincare, hair care and make up items for myself. And better sizes so better value too.

The box is iconic design specifically for international women’s day. I will be saving this for sure.

No Elle magazine anymore, but I’ll be honest I never really enjoyed them anyways, so that’s a good change for me. Less paper waste.

As usual there is a reason I wanted this box, and it was this single item. I wanted to try out some good eye creams.

#ElizabethArden Superstart Skin Renewal Booster 5ml rrp £7.50

Designed to restore your skins natural ability to repair and renew, it’s the perfect skin booster, with less irritation and reducing the appearance of damaged skin.

This item came with the box but no info about it in the box, so I don’t know it’s RRP price.

A gentle yet effective re-texturing mask infused with extracts of papaya and fresh grapefruit as well as flower acids derived from revitalizing hibiscus. The rich texture reveals fresh and brighter looking skin. The face looks smooth, clear, and radiant. Crafted in Switzerland with the highest quality pure botanicals.

72.7% Natural including a rosewater base

I’m loving having this box, it’s a thread of normalcy to cling too in an uncertain world. And for sure the stress and anxiety will play havoc with my skin and arthritis flare ups, so anything that helps me stay into a normal routine, is a huge hit for me right now.

October #LookFantasticBox

Beauty Boxes, Blogger Reviews, Events, Make Up, Beauty, Skincare

This month I thought may have been themed for Halloween, but it’s not. It is in a gorgeous deep purple box though, which makes it feel a bit witchy for me!

Inside you have

#LookGoodFeelBetter Angled Blending Brush worth £8.99 create your complete eyeshadow with a blended diffused look.

#OhK! Chok Chok Holographic Fibre Face Mask worth £10.00 charged with citrus oils and skin boosting ascorbic acid, leaving skin bright and dewy.

#TheBalm Foiled Again is the one I got, worth £8.00 it’s an intensely pigmented multi purpose shadows, very buttery soft too.

#Polaar The Genuine Lapland Hand Cream worth £9.90 I’ve tried the day cream which I loved, so I’m eager to try this out. Much needed it this weather. Rich in artic berries, it should be good.

And last but not least #WetBrush Detangler worth £7.99 a much needed tool with my hair, which is hellish. Helps to detangle without stretching and breaking the hair.

A bloody good box this month for me, glad there was no cleansers and fillers like eyeliners. As I have more than enough of those. But instead actual useful tools and products to use.

but as a back to school box it’s ok, glad I used my points though. No card included, not sure why? But inside I got #GrowGorgeous scalp detox which youngest will use on her sunburnt scalp. Smells nice and it feels creamy. #WetOnes bit annoyed with them, I mean really?? #DailyConcepts mini facial scrubber, I do actually need a new one, so although pretty basic, it’s useful to me. #bangbeauty brow cream this will be used as why not, but I can’t see it turning me away from #wunder2 #beautypro bubbling cleansing masks, one of the few masks I love, so looking forward to using this.
Best thing in the box is #karllagerfeldmodelco lip pencil rosewood it’s absolutely gorgeous and the product I’m most excited about.

Style Awards #LatestInBeauty Box

As soon as I saw it I knew I had to buy it, you got to choose 6 products from 60 items chosen. And boy oh boy there are some cracking products to choose as well.

As I was sharing the box with my youngest daughter her blog is here we both chose 3 items each. And all for £25.00 plus postage + packaging. Bargain!!

Choosing was hard I’ll be honest, and I was sad I’d missed the Charlotte Tilbury items. But not to worry too much we did bag ourselves a #Mac lipstick #cloudsinmycoffee

Obviously we both like this, but it’s predominantly my daughter’s top pick. RRP 18.00

I however chose this as my top pick and it’s #DrSebagh serum repair and after two uses I love it, but it’s RRP is £69.00 so no matter how much I love it, I can’t be spending that on it.

Next for my daughter was another joint love product, The Body Shops Matcha Tea Mask RRP £17.00

I hope she will let me try it soon!!

For me my next one was boring but necessary to try. As my leg skin is rough, Extremely dry and could do with love after its many many surgeries. So I chose #Ameliorate Transforming Body Lotion RRP £26.00

My daughter loves Tanning, so her last item was perfect for her to try #Sienna 1hr tanning mousse RRP £25.00

My last item is a new found love of mine, a cleansing balm. I’ve tried a few now, such as #BeautyKitchen and #EmmaHardie and this one is #Evelom and for this size it’s RRP at £20.00 but you usually buy it twice this size and at £42.00. another item I won’t be buying as the price bracket is too high for a daily use product.

All in all we got around £175.00 worth of products, so it was too good to miss. You can still find some good products left here. I’m totally impressed, and though they won’t be repurchase products as they are too expensive for me personally, I think others will really love them. It’s a perfect way to try out brands and products you thought were beyond your means and budget.
