LookFantastic 1st Birthday Beauty Box

The Lookfantasic Beauty Box has reached a huge milestone as beauty boxes go and the September Box is the 1st Birthday Box which is packed full of products to test an try out, 8 in total.

LookFantastic 1st Birthday Beauty Box

The first item is from Bliss with the Fabulous Foaming Face Wash. This is a 30ml travel size, which is not too bad a size to test something out and take away for a long weekend. It is described as being a gentle yet effective 2-in-1 cleanser and exfoliator, it carefully buffs away dead skin cells with the round exfoliating beads, as well as removing make-up, dirt and impurities. Enriched with rose hips, chamomile and passion flower, it calms and soothes your skin to leave it wonderfully clean and clear. A Bliss best-seller, it's the perfect multi-tasker. This has an rrp £3.50.

Next there is Tanworx Tan Maintainer which arrives in a 60ml tube. Made by Monu, a brand I really like, it is said to help maintain your tan for longer the tan maintainer is formulated with carrot oil, coconut oil and sunflower oil to moisturise the skin, plus Hyaluronic Acid and Seaweed. Perfect for avoiding steaks, the formula will help you to maintain your golden glow.  Now all I need is a spray tan or some sun injection to give this a try, otherwise it will be cupboard bound till 2016. This has an rrp £7.

LookFantastic 1st Birthday Beauty Box

Phyto is a brand I have heard of but never used and in my box I have Phytokeratin Extreme Creme which whilst it doesn't explain what it is, I managed to find out that it is infact a leave-in cream to nourish and repair hair. Provides thermal protection up to 220ÂșC to prevent further breakage and split ends and shields from humidity so you can experience frizz-free, silky smooth locks. It has been specially formulated with keratin plant, an ingredient that delivers essential amino acids, whilst sapote butter and baobab oil soften hair and restore the intercellular cement in the hair fibres. Infused with pink peony petals, the luxurious cream moisturises hair to leave you with hydrated, healthy-looking and manageable locks. This bottle has a value of around £9.

LookFantastic 1st Birthday Beauty Box

Next I have a Sebastian Shampoo and Conditoner in 50ml bottles. I used to love Potion 9 as a teen and used it religiously on my hair but as I got older and my hair changed, it became less effective. In this box I have the Penetraitt which is described as being a rescue formula dedicated to strengthening and repairing over processed, chemically treated hair. Guarding from every day stresses and deeply penetrating to remove debris and product build up, the rich concoction with colour safe Active Rescue System will reconstruct the hair follicles and effectively cleanse for revitalised, strong and soft results. Each bottle has a value of around £3.

LookFantastic 1st Birthday Beauty Box

I was chuffed to see Caudalie make an appearance within this box and instead of getting one product, I have two from the Vinosource range. Starting with moisturising sorbet creme is designed to Calm irritated and stressed skin with the Caudalie Vinosource Moisturizing Sorbet. This gel-cream formula has immediate soothing properties and leaves skin refreshed and comfortable. It uses organic grape water to hydrate and calming chamomile. Ideal for any skin type that experiences reactionary sensitivity, this nourishing formula leaves skin clear, smooth and soft. The second produce is Caudalie Vinosource SOS Thirst Quenching Serum which is said to provide intense, long-lasting hydration to skin that needs it most. Enriched with soothing organic grape water, plumping hyaluronic acid, and packed with antioxidants, it reveals a radiant, dewy look to any complexion. Together they have a value of around £14.

LookFantastic 1st Birthday Beauty Box

The final item in the box is by Codage, another brand I have only heard of recently but not yet used. It is a French brand and the Scrubbing Cream which is in my box is described as being a rich and soothing emulsion made from fine rice particles which enables optimal facial exfoliation. Respectful of even the most sensitive skin types, this scrubbing cream eliminates impurities and dead skin cells, while stimulating elasticity and cellular renewal. The complexion is smooth, even and glowing. The product contains no parabens, no essential oils, is not tested on animals and nor is there any phtalates. This 25ml tube has an approximate value of £17!

LookFantastic 1st Birthday Beauty Box

For a celebratory box, I think this is one that shows off the products you can purchase on Lookfantastic amazingly well and I am really chuffed with it.  I haven't tried a single product within the box until it arrived, but each one has fascinated me and I cannot wait to give them all a try, especially Codage, which I am totally intrigued with and the whole range looks amazing!

LookFantastic Beauty Box - May

Last Month's LookFantastic Beauty Box wasn't the best box that I had had to date, it was alright but didn't excite me a great deal, so with the May Box arriving, I had high hopes!

This months box has six products neatly packaged inside the box, plus an extra treat of knowing what one of the items in the June box will be, now im not going to spoil the surprise but it is from REN and it is a great product.

The first product inside this months box is the Omorovicza Thermal Cleansing Balm. is a black balm made with Hungarian Moor mud which is brimming with calcium and magnesium carbonates that act as a magnet to impurities and make-up, as well as almond oil to nourish and protect the skin. Skin is left looking and feeling soothed and cleansed. This is a 5ml sample which is worth £4.60.

LookFantastic Beauty Box - May

Nuxe Huile Prodigieuse is next and I am a big fan of Nuxe products and this is one I haven't tried. Described as being an Amazing Dry Gold Oil, it is a multi-usage dry oil that gives a golden shimmer to your face, body and hair .Said to have a super-activated formula that combines 30% of precious plant oils and vitamin E to nourish, repair and soften face, body and hair in a single gesture, this oil leaves your face and body soft and velvety, whilst your hair becomes supple, glossy and full of volume. Thanks to its small golden particles, your skin glitters and reveals its beauty whenever you move. This is a 10ml sample and is worth around £4

LookFantastic Beauty Box - May

Tanworx by Monu Skincare. Whilst I am not a fan of fake tan, this offering from Monu, whose skincare products ive always been impressed with, is said to be a foam which is easy to apply and streak-free, providing an instant colour that develops and deepens into a healthy, bronzed glow. The formula is tinted so you can see exactly where you have applied your tan, for an even looking tan. The 100ml tube is worth around £6.50

LookFantastic Beauty Box - May

Christoper Robin Regenerating Hair Mask is a brand and product I have never heard of or come across, so it is always exciting to try something new. Suitable for all hair types, this mask is enriched with pure prickly pear seed oil which is one of the rarest and most expensive oils in the world. Said to provide a deep and long-lasting action from root to tip, hair becomes sumptuous and smooth in just 2 minutes. It is also free from paraben, silicone, SLS and colourants.  This 50ml tube is worth around £10.

LookFantastic Beauty Box - May

Erno Laszlo Transphuse Night serum is the penultimate product in this months box and whilst it is only a 2ml sample, it is worth around £15! The serum claims to helps turn back the hands of time as you snooze, naturally reducing the appearance of fine lines and helping recover damaged skin. This light-weight, anti-ageing serum boosts the skin's natural defense barrier, so you can wake up feeling ready and refreshed for the day ahead.

LookFantastic Beauty Box - May

The final item in this months box are some pre-glued Eylure lashes. Again not a product I use as I can never apply them correctly and don't have the patience needed to practise. That said they claim to be hassle free and perfect for adding volume and extra length to your lashes.  Worth £5.50.

LookFantastic Beauty Box - May

So that is the LookFantastic Beauty Box for May with contents worth around £45, for a box which costs £15 it is not a bad return for your money and even though there are two products I am unlikely to use, I do have four products that I will use, all of which I have never used before and am looking forward to giving a try too.

Look Fantastic April Beauty Box

The LookFantastic Beauty box is one I have raved about on my blog for bringing together great products from the site which make for one great box. This months box arrived on Good Friday which was a bit of surprise and once again it is packed full of brands that I am a fan of as well as some that I have not come across or used.

Look Fantastic April Beauty Box
Look Fantastic April Beauty Box

Korres is a brand I really like, especially the lip butters. Since becoming a beauty box subscriber I have been lucky enough to try quite a few more and today this box features Calendula Soap. Okay, so soap is not the most exciting product in the world, but it is one of those items you always need.  Korres describe this soap as being "A glycerine-based mild soap suitable for both the face and whole body. Calendula possesses emollient and mild antiseptic properties, while vitamin E protects and conditions the skin". It is Dermatologically Tested, Mineral Oil Free and Silicone Free and perfect for those with dry and/or sensitive skin. This soap is worth around £2.

Look Fantastic April Beauty Box

The Balance Me Revitalising Hand and Body Wash comes next and again, anyone who is a regular reading of my blog will know that Balance Me is one of my favourite brands. A naturally foaming wash which features a feel good aroma and skin-boosting blend, to cleanse and rapidly rehydrate dry, sensitive skin making it perfect for the whole family. Using a blend of calming mandarin with cleansing grapefruit, balancing bergamot and rejuvenating sweet orange, as well as a hint of mint to give a beautifully refreshing scent to help soothe the mind throughout the day. The natural surfactants used luxuriously foam and clean the skin without stripping or drying it, leaving hands smooth and hydrated with every wash. This product has a value of around £6

Look Fantastic April Beauty Box

Next up is a product that I have already handed to my mister to blog about and that is a mini tub of TIGI Bed Head Manipulator. He has short spikey hair which I am hoping he will find quite useful. It smells absolutely amazing and is designed to help create a textured matte finish.  RRP £3.99

Look Fantastic April Beauty Box

Inika come next with a Eye Pencil in Caviar Black. Inika is a brand I have come across from reading blogs but not a brand I have tried.  I am not a wearer of eyeliner, so this product has already been given to a friend of mine who does, so I will be interested to see how she gets on with it.  Formulated with natural organic ingredients the Inika eyeliner has a smooth, creamy texture which is said to glide effortlessly onto the skin with longer lasting staying power.  This has an RRP £13.50

Look Fantastic April Beauty Box

The last two products for me are an odd choice to include and for me are quite disappointing. The first is the CB12 Safe Breath Mouthwash which is described as being a refreshing mint and menthol mouth wash that provides an instant effect. CB12 is a long-lasting mouth rinse, giving you confidence for up to 12 hours. Bad breath is a build-up of bacteria in the mouth, found between the teeth, in gum pockets, or on the back of your tongue. The zinc acetate neutralises sulphur gases in the mouth and blocks the formation of substances that cause bad breath. Containing 0.05% of sodium fluoride, this mouthwash is designed to help reduce plaque build up and prevent tooth decay.  It has a value of around £3.

Look Fantastic April Beauty Box

Forza Multivitamins For Women is the final item and yeah they do absolutely nothing for me whatsoever. Designed to provide the body with all the nutrients and vitamins it needs during dieting, the Forza multivitamins are specifically tailored to the needs of women. With calcium, vitamin C, biotin, zinc and six types of B vitamins, this month's supply of capsules ensures that your body still receives everything it needs to maintain healthy during the cutting down of calories.  None of which I need and nor am I dieting so they are destined for the rubbish bin, to purchase they cost £7.49 for a box of 30 tablets.

So the April Box, which is worth around £36, is perhaps the worst LookFantastic Beauty Box I have had to date, but out of the six products found inside, only two of them are ones I was not impressed with and two others have found homes with the mister and a close friend. What are your thoughts on this months box?

LookFantastic March Box

One beauty box that I am loving right now comes from LookFantastic, every month I have loved the contents this month is no exception.  The box costs just £15 and you more than get value for money for the items that are included and all of the brands that feature are available on the Lookfantastic website.

So the March box is here and this is what I found inside:

bliss Fatgirlslim - I quite like a few Bliss products, but this is one im not too impressed with the name of. That aside, this is said to make the skin look and feel firmer and more toned.  You apply it twice a day and massage it onto your skin for 20-30 seconds to simultaneously stimulate circulation and stimulate lymphatic drainage to improve body contour.

This sample has a value of around £10

Lil' "Wet" Brush - This is my first dealing with Wet Brush, though I have seen them mentioned quite a lot on other blogs, so I am quite looking forward to see how well it works. This is a handy travel sized brush, so it has gone straight into my handbag. Even though this is a mini version of the classic Wet Brush it is still described as being fierce on knots and tangles but a big pussy cat on scalps! It has what are called IntelliFlex™ bristles to ensure snag-free brushing as they bounce back to their original form after every brush stroke and the SofTips™ on the ends of the bristles  gently massage your scalp to stimulate circulation.

This brush costs £7.99

Lord & Berry Line/Shade Kajal and Eyeliner Pencil in Travel Black - I am told you can never have too many black eyeliner pencils, though as I dont wear eyeliner I will have to accept the majority rule. This Lord & Berry Couture Kohl Kajal Eye Pencil is described as being silky and smooth and it creates a semi-matte look, whilst the highly pigmented formula gives a rich colour for ultimate definition.  It has also been Ophthalmologically-tested and is suitable for those with sensitive eyes.

This eyeliner is worth around £5

Cowshed Lippy Cow Natural Lip Balm - I am a huge Cowshed fan, particularly of their bath range, not only do the product names make me laugh, they are insanely good. One thing I have never tried is their lipbalm and as a lipbalm addict I am always happy to add to my collection. This product contains no parabens, no petrochemicals and is free from sulphates, artificial fragrances and colours. It is suitable for vegetarians and has not been tested on animals. It does contain the essential oils of linden blossom to protect and nourish, rose geranium to help rejuvenate, and ylang ylang to stimulate circulation.

This balm is available online from Look Fantastic for just £5.00

NudeStix Magnetic Colour Gift in Gilt - This is my first look at Nudestix and there are 8 different shades in total. In my box I have the shade Gilt which is a really pretty light gold shade, something I would refer to as a champagne. For me it is a brilliant multi-purpose stick in that it can be used as all over the lid, in the inner corner and even on the inner lower lash line and it gives a really lovely natural colour, I absolutely love it.

This product is available online from Look Fantastic for £24.00

The Final item in my box is by Nuxe and it is called the Nuxellence Detox, Detoxifying and Youth Revealing Anti-Aging Care cream - what a mouthful that is.  This is described as being an innovative anti-ageing treatment that uses 10 patents to recharge your skin and detoxify cells overnight. It is suitable for all skin types and ages. This nightly detox also helps to promote cell renewal, allowing you to wake up every morning with a refreshed, youthful glow! Full of natural ingredients Nuxellence Detox helps to smooth wrinkles, plump skin and brighten your complexion.

This 15ml sample has a value of around £14.

So there you have it, the contents of my March Lookfantastic box and I absolutely love, it is possibly the second best box there has been and as usual there isn't a product I don't like in the box, I like them all and cannot wait to try them out.  

What you think about this month's #LFBeauty Box. Which product would you be most excited to try out?
