Look Fantastic's March Beauty Box #LFEXPLORER Edition

Look Fantastic's March Beauty Box has arrived on my doorstep and not only do I absolutely love the design of the box, but I am absolutely thrilled with the contents. This month sees an amazing feature of beauty brands from all over the world and all of which are available from Look Fantastic, There is also a copy of the newest Elle Magazine which I am told is to be a regular feature with getting your box, so for just £15 this is an absolute bargain. Also inside the box is the beauty box magazine which details a little more information about the products included which I always like to read.

The products this month have been chosen to give to you the chance to go global with your beauty routine for March.

Codage Moisturising Mask | £42.00 for 50ml
I was glad to see Codage make another appearance withing this box, because just a short while ago I received the "Scrubbing Cream" which I absolutely loved and it is one of those brands I would love to try more from. The brand is most certainly on the pricier end of the spectrum though, so boxes like Look Fantastic are a brilliant way to not only introduce you to these brands but to also give you the chance to try before you buy. This mask is described as being deeply hydrating and designed to leave your skin not only feeling nourished, but also looking its healthiest which is in part owing to the unique moisturising properties. The texture is a really rich, but luxurious emulsion helps to banish signs of dryness and damage and it is free from parabens, essential oils and phthalates making it suitable for the most sensitive of skin.

You can never go wrong with a product from Nuxe and this is a lightweight moisturiser has been formulated with Blue Ageratum and Blue Everlasting Flower which help to reduce inflammation and redness. Ideal for those with Normal/Combination skin, this cream will also keep your skin nourished and protected. It has a really smooth texture which absorbs quickly into the skin, so if like me, some morning are a bit of a rush to get to work, then this is a great quick application cream. 

First Aid Beauty is a skincare range that I have had my eye on for some time now, manily because of all the glowing reviews I have read about many products from the brand. The Ultra Repair Cream again is designed to help banish dry skin and is described as being the ultimate head-to-toe moisturiser. More so, it is claimed that after 2 weeks of continuous use, it has been clinically proven to deliver 169% improvement in skin hydration. The cream is a super-emollient which heals, nourishes, protects and hydrates dry and itchy skin. The texture isn't quite how I expected it to be, I thought it would be fairly thick, something like Sudocrem for example, but it isn't at all and soon as it comes into contact with the skin, it begins to absorb and leaves no oily trace behind.

Lottie London is a brand that again, I have heard a lot about but haven't come across until now. Within in this months Look Fantastic box there are four different brushes making their introductions. I have the Shade and Shadow brush which is a pastel pink shade and is described as being a professional-grade, angled shadow brush with ultra-soft bristles. Perfect for shaping, smudging and lining, the brush delivers the perfect amount of colour, adding definition and shape to the eye with precision. Can be used in the crease, corners or across the entire lid to create smooth or blurred out lines.

Revlon Colorburst Lacquer Balm in Demure | £7.99
The second makeup item in this months box comes from Revlon and it is a new Colourburst lip lacquer in shade 105 which is called Demure. I am a big fan of these kind of lip products and this is said to be infused with a triple butter complex of Shea, Mango and Coconut which not only helps the crayon to glide over your lips to give a pop of colour, but it also helps to keep your lips moisturised and hydrated too. It has a twist up bottom, so there is no need for sharpening and as well as being used on your lips, you can use it on your cheeks too.

The final item in the box is from Caudalie, another brand I am a big fan of, though I am yet to really be blown away by a Micellar Water I have to be honest and I have tried more than a few. Caudalie Micellar Cleansing Water is said to gently cleanse and remove make up from the eyes and face in one simple step. With a formula made up of micelles which trap impurities (think excess sebum, pollution, make up, dirt and grime) in the skin so they can easily be wiped away. The one thing I am liking about this Micellar water so far is its simple fragrance which is made up of orange and lemon blossom plus watermelon and mint and it does leave your skin feeling soft, smooth and incredibly moisturised and I think for me, this could become THE Micellar Cleansing Water because I have used it every day since getting the box!

Lastly in the box are two Emergen-C sachets in Super Orange flavour. It is described as a super-charged Emergen-C Immune+® dietary supplement which supports your immune system with the key nutrients your body needs, plus a propriety complex with beta-glucans and arabinogalactans. A bit of an odd inclusion, but I thought I would give one a go because I have had the worst ever cold and if you have ever taken things like Berocca, then try these, they taste less like chalk and more like the juice of an orange.

I think this is one of the best Look Fantastic Beauty Boxes for a while now and there isn't a single product within this box that I havent already used. I love that there is something for everyone to try, some amazing brands and it might just have managed to convince me that I need a Micellar Cleansing Water in my life, because the Caudalie inclusion within this box is just brilliant. If you have never tried a beauty box before, then this one is one of the best I have ever had!
