This is my second LookFantastic box and I’m impressed yet again. The October #LFSparkle box is so christmasy and festive! I love the box design, it’s a perfect box to re-use during the upcoming christmas season! There are seven items in the box, most of which are from brands I haven’t tried before which is one of the best things about subscription boxes – I always want to try new brands and products.
The first item I wanted to try was the Model Co Blush in the shade Peach Bellini which is a lovely, peachy coral shade – perfect to add a natural flush to the cheeks. It has a smooth, easy to blend formula and it adds a radiant glow to the skin without being glittery or over the top.
The final makeup item in the box is the Look Good Feel Better Angled Blending Brush which is a brand that supports women with cancer – 8% to 12% of the wholesale price goes to the Look Good Feel Better charity. The brush is incredibly smooth, soft and gentle on the skin; also it has multiple uses such as blending eyeshadow, concealer or powder under the eyes.
The skincare item in the October box is from a brand that I’ve tried before and loved. The Monu Skin Soothing Touch Recovery Balm is perfect for sensitive or stressed skin. Although it isn’t a balm at all, it’s a silky and moisturising cream that leaves my skin smooth, soft, comfortable (which is really important for those with sensitive skin as I do) and moisturised.
Next up, a couple of hair products – the Loreal Mythic Oil which is a nourishing hair oil designed for all hair types. I have tried a sample of this hair oil previously and I loved it; I use hair oils at least once a week before I wash my hair (If I leave it on my hair for an hour or so then wash it out, it leaves my hair so smooth and soft). It comes in a large 30ml glass bottle so it will last for ages!
The second hair item is the Sebastian Volupt Spray (50ml) which again is a fantastic size for a subscription box. It’s a volume building spray-gel which is something I wouldn’t really use, partly because I have quite long, thick hair and secondly, I can never be bothered with hair gel. It’s the only item in the box that I’m not 100% happy with.
The penultimate item is my favourite product from the box, the Bloom & Blossom Revitalising Leg and Foot Spray. Usually I don’t use products like this but this one smells incredible – it has a gorgeous, light and natural scent. It refreshes the skin, absorbs really quickly and will be perfect in the summer; additionally 97% of the ingredients are natural.
Additionally with every box you receive a card showing the contents and a travel/smaller copy of the latest issue of Elle UK magazine which is a fantastic bonus item that most subscription boxes don’t include – as well as a glittery nail file.
