LookFantastic January 2016

LookFantastic is the first Beauty Box through my door this January and it is aptly titled 'The Detox Edition'.  Most of my friends are on some sort of detox currently, so this is totally on message.  The box is described as being filled with special delights and delectable treats to keep your skin looking healthy and your complexion glowing.

So the first product that appears in the box is by Kebelo. This isn't a new brand to the Lookfantastic Beauty Box as the shampoo featured in the July box and whilst I quite like it, I would have liked to have seen something else. The Shampoo a clarifying shampoo and is designed to be used once or twice a month and is described as "Rid your hair of built up impurities with the Kebelo Clarifying Shampoo. Paraben and sulphate free, the detoxing shampoo is gentle in formula but tough on grime. Deeply cleansing, the blend of mild ingredients work to exfoliate your hair, rejuvenating every strand for purified, soft results. Can be used as little as once a month dependent on your lifestyle and even as an invigorating body wash for your skin. Added to that is the Kebelo Revitalising Conditioner which helps control frizz hair leaving it soft, smooth and manageable. Using ingredients such as Quinoa, Amaranth and Chamomile, the conditioner provides nourishment and hydration.

Bellapierre is the only make-up brand in this months box and again, LookFantastic have some amazing brands on their site, so I would love to try something other than Bellapierre which has featured a lot! The product in this months box is a Shimmer Shadow and I have shade Earth and it takes on a rose gold glow which is really pretty and perhaps one I would use more as a highlighter than an eye shadow.

Dr Lancer is a brand I have heard of but have never used products from. The product in my box is called 'The Method: Polish' which is quite intriguing. Described as being a gentle skin-resurfacing treatment it uses pure minerals which are combined with magnesium oxide and sodium bicarbonate crystals to exfoliate the skin's surface, combating dullness, removing the build-up of debris and stimulating cell renewal for a refreshed, youthful-looking complexion. It is fortified with pumpkin and pomegranate extracts, the anti-ageing polish works to break down dead skin cells, whilst brown sea algae replenishes moisture and boosts collagen production to reveal a smooth, supple complexion and healthy glow.  This I am looking forward to trying because it is something I would not be able to afford to purchase at full price!

Next comes Nuxe, a brand I really like. In this both we have Nuxellence Detoxwhich is described as being an innovative anti-ageing treatment that uses 10 patents to recharge your skin and detoxify cells overnight. Packed with natural ingredients (including passionflower, poppy and silk tree), Nuxellence Detox helps to smooth wrinkles, plump skin and brighten your complexion. Its secret power lies in repairing your skin’s mitochondrial DNA, the DNA that’s responsible for the energy supply in cells. This will regenerate your skin and improve its radiance within no time.

The final item in the box is from Darphin and I am excited by this becayse it is a brand I have been wanting to try for ages now.  The product in question is the Azahar Cleansing Micellar Water. Described as being a gentle cleanser which is suited for all skin types as it is dermatologically and ophthalmologically tested, as well as being alcohol, fragrance and soap free. It cleanses and removes all traces of make-up and impurities, whilst providing a comforting and soothing feeling. Now I am yet to find a Micellar water I like, it is one of those products which I am not bothered about and can live without, but I am interested to see whether Darphin can change my mind.

So there you have it. The January LookFantastic box which costs just £15 a month and it is, as you can see, packed with a wide range of products, all of which are really nice sizes so that you can get more than one try out of them.

  2. The rose gold eyeshadow looks stunning I would use it to highlight my eyes and maybe my contour too. I used to have an electric blue Bella Pierre shadow and it was divine!

  3. I love the idea of these boxes, I like the idea of a little 'surprise' coming through the door but I always think they'll end up being full of stuff I won't use and that puts me off. This looks like a good one though!

  5. I like the idea of beauty boxes but I'm not sure I'd like to have repeats or things that I didn't like. Still the surprise is always nice I bet :) And this looks like a great beauty box.
    I've heard of Kebelo Clarifying Shampoo before and I really do need to try that! I also like shimmery eye shadow. xx

  19. Looks a great box for a detox!!
    I'm not the biggest fan of the boxes anymore... Generally I was mostly disappointed with them. But having said that, it's been about 2 years since I got one so maybe they've got better? Would be great to hear if they have as I love surprises but only if they were nice ones!!!

    Fab review as always!!!

  24. Good value, but I agree with you, it is a shame there are repeat products - the whole idea is about trying something new.

  29. I like the look of everything you received in your box this month. Especially the Dr Lancer Method polish. I think I could do with some of that at the moment.

  30. I've really liked the Look Fantastic beauty boxes I've had but I don't think this one would have wowed me - I'm not really a fan of the whole detox theme. The Bellapierre shadow looks like a really pretty shade though!
