For the past year I have subscribed to LookFantastic’s Beauty Box. As I’m trying to limit the amount of beauty products I have waiting to be used at home I won’t be renewing my subscription. The December #LFxmas box then will be my last. Ironically it is probably one of the best boxes I have received from LookFantastic this year.
So what’s inside?
Illamasqua Hydra Veil Primer – I have wanted to try this primer for so long but couldn’t justify spending out £32 on it . I was ridiculously excited to see this in December box then. It is a generous 6ml deluxe sized sample so should give me a chance to throughly try it out.
The Primer has an almost jelly like texture and contains a blend of Vitamin C and B3 and skin nourishing micro algae. My first impressions are very very good. I used this yesterday and my make looked and stayed flawless till I removed it. I’ll let you know my further thoughts after a couple of weeks using this.
Philip Kingsley Elasticizer – I have used this pre-shampoo treatment many times before after receiving it in other beauty subscription boxes. It does a great job of adding bounce and volume to my hair without any stickiness. Again the rrp of this product is high so I’m always delighted to receive it in a box.
Balance Me Pure Skin Face Wash – Balance me is brand that I tried before and enjoyed. I haven’t tried this cleanser before though so am happy to have the opportunity to try it out.
It contains grapefruit and frankincense oils which help to gently reduce skin congestion and blemishes. I can often find anti blemish cleansers too harsh for my skin so am hopeful that this will work for me.
BUBBLE T Bath Bomb – I love a bathbomb so was really pleased to see this included in the box.
It is free from parabens and SLS so suitable for those with sensitive skin. I can’t comment on the scent yet as it is in a sealed packet but it is Hibiscus and Acai Berry Tea scented.
Skin Republic Caviar and CoQ10 Sheet Mask – I’m a huge sheet mask fan. This contains an interesting balance of ingredients so I’m expecting it to be good. Caviar is rich in vitamins that provide hydration, whislt Witch Hazel helps to fight blemishes. I’m not sure what CoQ10 is but is is supposed to contribute to skin healthiness.
Mello Cosmetics Madness Lipstick – I have not seen much from this brand before. So a lipstick is a good introduction to the brand. It is a New Zealand based cruelty free brand that is suitable for vegans and free from parabens.
This looks like is a true matte red lipstick in the bullet but swatches a little bit on the pink side of red.
The #LFxmas is such a great box so im finishing my subscription on a high note. There isn’t one product I won’t use. The stand out product for me has to be the Illamasqua hydra veil as it’s been on my wish list for about two years. I will let you know soon how I get on with it over a longer period of time.
