As a blogger trying out new and different products has become part of everyday life and so beauty boxes are the perfect solution to this thirst for more. Although I like the idea of a monthly beauty box service, I do not like the idea of a rolling contract and prefer to pick a box based on what products are inside to make sure I am getting my money’s worth. The Lookfantastic box has been around for a few months now and I see it all over the blogosphere at the beginning of every month so finally last month I finally took the plunge and ordered a box. Lets just say I was very far from disappointed and you can see my full review of the box here.
Each month Lookfantastic release a big reveal about the next months box and after seeing the February box would contain a Moroccanoil Original Oil Treatment (25ml) worth £13.45 I was pretty much sold! I pre-ordered and awaited the beginning of the month for my box to arrive. I have to say this is probably verging on THE best beauty box I have received to date and for only £15 when the value of the contents is £48 you would be stupid not to snap one up right away! The box contained:
Korres Citrus Little Body Milk
Monu Professional Skincare Illuminating Primer SPF 15
Dr Paw Paw Original Balm
Bellapiere Eyeliner Pencil
Erno Laszo Mud Deep Cleansing Bar
Moroccanoil is a brand I am yet to try but I have heard only good things about so I am very excited to finally have a treatment to try out and I will keep you posted on how I get on with this product. The Korres body care ranges are without a doubt my favourite and the citrus scent is so refreshing and calming I absolutely love it! After stocking up on the shower gel, my body milk started running out but this should keep me going until I order some more. Another product I have previously tried and absolutely love is the Monu primer. From first use a love affair started with this product as it left my skin looking so dewy and radiant, my skin literally looks like its glowing. With the extravagant price tag this is not something I could justify buying over and over but luckily a small amount goes a long way so this should keep me going until I add a full sized primer to my collection!
Multipurpose balms are such a must have product especially in these colder months when skin dries out quicker than normal. Dr. Paw Paw is a brand I have seen mentioned on some of my favourite blogs so I am excited to finally be able to try it out for myself and see how it compares to other balms. So far I love how nourishing and soothing this is on the lips and I can see this tube lasting a very long time as a little goes a long way. The most exciting product in the box for me is the cleansing bar. Erno Laszo is a brand completely new to me and the idea of a solid cleansing bar is a completely new concept entirely. The bar is made using 97% natural ingredients and enriched with Dead Sea mud which detoxifies, hydrates and restores the skin’s mineral levels. I am very intrigued to try this out as an alternative to my usual exfoliator and liquid cleanser.
The last item is again a brand I have not heard of before but you can’t go wrong with: a black eyeliner. Overall I am very impressed with the contents of this box and I love the variety of skincare, haircare and makeup included. If you want to get your hands on the February box you can do so here but be quick as its sure to be a sell out.
