Look Fantastic Beauty Box Review | October 2015

Hello everyone!

Here is my review for Look Fantastic Beauty Box October 2015. This is their second box with the unique gold and white design and pretty turquoise paper inside. These are the prettiest boxes so far, they look luxurious and beautiful at the same time. The contents of the box are fantastic this month. I’ve found couple of gems for myself that I use now on a daily basis. As always, there are many good-sized samples of one of the most well-known skincare brands.

The box always includes at least 6 products, you would be able to find a great selection of skincare, make-up and lifestyle products that will fulfil any beauty junkie’s expectations.

This Nuxe cream is my new beauty-crush. Now, when I’m trying to pay extra attention to my nails, as they need to be rescued from endless shellac and gellish cycle, this cream came in handy, I use it twice a day and after a week of using it on a daily basis (I keep it near to my laptop, so that I don’t forget to use it), I can see amazing results. My nails aren’t perfect, yet, but I’m on a right track. I have noticed that tips of my nails got much stronger and hopefully this will prevent them from breaking. Plus, the product is long-lasting, so it worths every penny.

2. Murad AHA/BHA Exfoliating Cleanser – Travel Size 50ml

2. Murad AHA/BHA Exfoliating Cleanser – Travel Size 50ml

This high-performance exfoliating cleanser benefits from AHA/BHA and promises to leave your skin cleansed and refined, with dullness and dehydration polished away and texture and tone noticeably improved to make the skin brighter and more youthful.

I’ve been using this exfoliator during the past week and without doubt it left my skin squeaky clean. I like that unlike many others exfoliators I’ve tried, this one is soft enough to not irritate soft skin. I would love to use more products with AHA/BHA components, as they are known for their magical ability to unclog the pores.

3. Percy & Reed – Travel Size 30ml

3. Percy & Reed Volumising No Oil Oil – Travel Size 30ml

It’s not the first time I’m trying this particular product, I’ve received it as a gift with one of the magazines some time ago, and I absolutely love it since then. I have very thin hair, I already told you about that, but this little thing makes them less frizzier and easier to control and style as I want. It leaves hair perfectly smooth and nice, so I recommend it to anyone with the same ‘frizzy hair’ problem, as mine.

I was happy to see this eyeshadow brush in my October box, and I was more happier to find out that Look Fantastic launched the whole charitable range of 12 professional quality make up brushes which have been created through the expertise of brush specialists. The collection is called ‘Look Good, Feel Better’ and 8%-12% of the wholesale price goes to Look Good Feel Good charity with a guaranteed donation of £30,000 a year. The brush is made of an excellent quality and I’ve already tried it in my make-up tutorial HERE.

5. Elemis Hydra-Balance Day Cream – Travel Size 20ml

5. Elemis Hydra-Balance Day Cream – Travel Size 20ml

This ultra-light, anti-oxidant rich day cream provides continuous hydration and helps balance normal to combination skin. Hyaluronic acid locks in essential moisture, whilst Meadowsweet extract regulates oil production. The aromatic blend of petitgrain, neroli and mandarin helps to instantly comfort. Skin is left feeling perfectly hydrated, balanced and supple.

I was struggling for so long to find a perfect moisturising cream that I can use in the morning. I didn’t want anything heavy as these creams usually make my face shine like a diamond, but not in a good way.

Elemis never disappoints, I still use their Enzyme Peel from time to time and this cream is the one I use on a daily basis now. It’s a perfect cream to use in the morning and before applying your make-up, it hydrates my skin until the end of the day and gives instant healthy glow. Will be buying more for sure 🙂

6. Monu Firming Moisturiser – Travel Size 25ml

6. Monu Firming Moisturiser – Travel Size 25ml

Suited for dry skin types, the Monu Firming Moituriser is a Marine Collagen enriched cream to soften and smooth the skin containing aromatic Neroli and Lavender essential oils as well as Glycerin and Coconut oil to soften and moisturise.

Think this is a little rich for my oily skin but it’s a great winter essential for those who suffer from dry skin.

7. Balance Me Radiance Face Mask – Travel size 30ml

7. Balance Me Radiance Face Mask – Travel size 30ml

Balance Me promise natural but affordable skincare and don’t use any harmful ingredients in their products, and where possible are 100% naturally sourced.

The mask comes in a generous size and claims to deeply cleanse, exfoliate and brighten the skin with an incredible line up of ingredients such as ground walnut shells, kaolin clay, rosemary, palma rose, lavender and chamomile oils.

Unlike face masks that we’re use to this works a little differently and has a similar consistency of an exfoliator. You simply rub in circular motions to release the beads and leave it for 5 minutes to work the rest of it’s magic before removing with warm water.
