Hi, you beautiful people. I am so sorry that I’ve been M.I.A this last month or so, my life has been somewhat of a whirlwind but, I’m back and I’m back with some new reviews for you! YAY!
So last week, I received my beauty box from Look Fantastic and it looks like this…
Spring vibes right? I really love the colour theme this month, it really is seasonal. It looks simple but professional. As you know, in my monthly boxes I also receive the monthly copy of ELLE magazine and a Beauty Box product booklet so, what’s in the box?
The April box theme is all about a fresh skin care routine and products and I love skin care! For me, the better my skin, the better base for my makeup.
The first product that caught my eye was the ‘Vegan – By Dr Botanicals‘. The smell of this product almost immediately hits you in the face when you open the box. It’s a Bergamot & Poppy Seed Smoothing Body Exfoliating Bar. The product is said to Hydrate, Cleanse and Gently Exfoliate. The Black Poppy Seeds will gently exfoliate your skin whilst the Shea butter moisturises and the fresh citrus aroma will work on uplifting your mood. Like all Dr Botanical products, the exfoliating bar comes in a brown, card box which is simple but in theme with the natural, vegan brand.
The product itself retails at £19.90 at the Dr.Botanicals website (click the link to browse) but although pricey, it comes with many benefits such as…
✔ Cleanses, hydrates and gently exfoliates the skin for smooth and youthful looking complexion
✔ Uplifting citrus aroma
✔ Exfoliation gently removes the dead skin cells from the skin’s surface
✔ Anti-Oxidant activity protects from free radical damage
✔ Moisture holding properties smooth and hydrate the skin
The next thing I noticed in my box was the ‘Glam Glow – Supermud Clearing Treatment’ – 15g. Now, from Instagram and most of my social media, I have heard and seen ALOT about Glam Glow! As a business, they create a family of different face masks to suit all of your skins needs so I was pretty excited to try this mask!
This particular mask is perfect for fighting common skin concerns i.e, pores, oiliness, blemishes, redness or spots. If you didn’t know already, a tightening mud treatment pulls out the excess oil and grime which we are all prone to and so one mask or another, this treatment needs to be part of your beauty routine. The product itself is a deep charcoal grey with a wet mud-like consistency; I used a brush to apply it evenly across my face. After putting my mask on, I felt the product tighten my skin almost immediately which is what I like. It makes me feel my pores are really being worked on, and all that unreachable scum is finally being pulled out. I simply left the product on my face 20 minutes and rinsed off with warm water; my skin looked and felt incredible!
This mud mask retails at £42.00 over at Glam Glow for 50g which, will and should last you a long time!
Next up in the box was the ‘NUXE Paris 48 Hour Moisurising Cream’ for Normal skin. This cream contains plant milks and algae extract which helps soothe and hydrate your skin. After the cold Winter we’ve all just endured, this would be perfect to rehydrate and rejuvenate your skin ready for the Summer; we crave that summer glow! For best use of this product, use it morning and night, generously and evenly to your face and neck area. If you’re thinking of getting this product, you can click the NUXE website link; the product retails at £25.00 for a 50ml jar.
Moving on throughout the box, I noticed the ‘NIP & FAB Exfoliating Cleansing Pads‘. Now I LOVE the NIP & FAB brand! LOVE THEM! So understandably, I was so excited to see these. You can get 60 pads over at Look Fantastic for just £6.48!
If you’re unsure of what exfoliating pads do, have a little read below…
Infused with a cocktail of exfoliating Glycolic Acid (2.8%) and Witch Hazel, the resurfacing pads gently slough away dead skin cells whilst toning to promote a smooth, radiant-looking visage. Deeply cleansing and moisturising, the re-texturising pads also contain a blend of Hyaluronic Acid and calming Blue Daisy for plump, moisturised results. Expect smoother, renewed and younger-looking skin.
Who doesn’t want younger looking skin?
Next up is the ‘Emma Hardie – Moringa Cleansing Balm’ which is more for mature skin but is said to calm, cleanse and soothe sensitive skin. It will revitalise your dry, dull skin and make it look fresh, youthful and hydrated.
More benefits to using this balm are…
- Award winning Moringa Cleansing Balm is a balanced daily cleanser that thoroughly cleanse deep in the pores, moisturises and calms all skin types
- Grape Seed Oil and Sweet Almond Oil rich in essential fatty acids help to plump and soften
- Moringa seed extract, Wild Sea Fennel and Vitamin E balance, purify and help to minimise the appearance of open pores
- Essential oils of Orange, Neroli and Mandarin rejuvenate and revitalise the skin whilst calming the senses
- Jasmine and Rose help to recondition dull, dry, dehydrated and mature skins
- Removes all traces of face and eye make-up and is so pure it doubles as a soothing and hydrating mask if left on the skin for ten minutes
If you’re interested in this product, head over to Emma Hardie now – it retails at £47.00 for 100ml.
Last but not least in the box was the PUR – Fully Charged Mascara. This product intrigues me because on the tube it says ‘Mascara powered by magnetic technology’ – WHAT THE? So, I looked it up and this is what I found..
Opposites attract with this anti-aging mascara that has a “magnetic” polymer matrix that wraps a positively charged elastic veil around each lash to instantly lift, separate and define each lash for long-lasting performance.
FANCY! I’m yet to try this product however when I do, if it’s as good as it says it is, I will definitely be writing a separate review! We all want bold, uplifting lashes so If you’ve tried this mascara already, share the secret! I would love to know your thoughts so please get in touch or drop me a comment. If you want to purchase the product, you can visit Look Fantastic where you can grab it for just £17.50!
So guys, sadly this brings me to the end of my unboxing for this month!
