If there’s one beauty box that’s really upped this game this year it’s the Look Fantastic Beauty Box. I absolutely love it when a Look Fantastic parcel comes in the post every month and this month’s box has to be one of my favourite editions I’ve received this year.
First of all, this months edition is rose gold?! I am obsessed with this box. I’ll be using this to store my beauty products, as this box is far too pretty to throw away. This months box includes goodies from Illamasqua, Philip Kingsley; Balance Me, Bubble T, Skin Republic and Mellow Cosmetics.
Not only does this box include 6 beauty products (including full size ones) but you also get a copy of the latest edition of Elle magazine which makes this box even better value for money!
Philip Kingsley Elasticizer - (sample size, full size £17)
This product from Philip Kingsley is probably one of the most talked about EVER hair products in the beauty blogging world (and I’ve never tried it!) until now… the elasticizer is designed to be used as a pre-shampoo treatment to add volume, bounce and body to your hair and also leave your hair-feeling super soft.
I used this for the first time a couple of days ago and styled my hair and I was really impressed! My hair felt softer but also had more volume to it and I think this product is the perfect companion for when you want to style your hair before a night out to give that ‘blow dry’ feel.
If you’re a fan of that super glowy (and highlighted) look, you’ll fall in love with this primer from Illamasqua. This primer contains a blend of vitamins C and B3, which helps to nourish the skin, and this primer will provide a long-lasting base for your foundation (winner!) What I’ve learnt from using this as I’ve got the full size version is that a little goes a long way. The best way I find to apply this is with a stippling brush to buff into your skin and literally about a 5p sized amount will be enough! This sample size is great as it’ll last you a really long time too.
Skin Republic Caviar and C0Q10 Face Mask - £4.99
If you want to impress me with a beauty box, put a facemask inside. I love doing a facemask and they are one of my favourite ways to relax. This mask is a great hydrating treat in the colder weather and this mask contains a blend of caviar (which is extremely rich in good vitamins) and this mask leaves your skin feeling radiant and revitalised. I tried this mask last night and I’m really impressed and I’ll definitely be picking up one of these again.
A pamper evening isn’t a pamper evening without a bath bomb right? I think baths are a great way to relax so this product is a great edition in this month’s beauty box. I’ll be using this over Christmas on one of my days off for a pamper evening!
I think a red lipstick is a beauty must have around party season and this is going to be a must have in my make-up bag this month. This is quite a deep red shade and it reminds me a lot of Ruby Woo. This lipstick is extremely matte so I’d recommend applying a lip balm first.
Balance Me Pure Skin Face Wash - (sample size, full size £16)
Thanks to beauty boxes and free samples in magazines, I’ve tried many products from Balance Me. This is probably about my 4th or 5th tube of this and I love using this face wash but part of me still wouldn’t spend £16 on a full size version! This face wash also smells amazing too as it’s scented with grapefruit.
