I’ve tried a lot of beauty subscription boxes but since receiving the past couple of LookFantastic boxes, they’ve rocketed to the top of my list of my favourite beauty boxes ever! They are always packaged so nicely and beautifully and I love the contents, especially this months box!
The December box is the #LFXmas box which is christmassy themed and the rose gold box is heavenly. The box contains four full size products and two smaller sizes products but they are still good sizes. The brands included in the December box are as follows: Bubble T, Illamasqua, Philip Kingsley, Balance Me, Mellow and Skin Republic.
Let’s start with the skincare products, first up the Skin Republic Co10+ Caviar Face Mask Sheet which is packed with Vitamin E so it should be great for hydrating the skin; however it also contains Witch Hazel too which can sometimes irritate my skin so I don’t think I’ll be using it sadly.
The second skincare product is one I’ve tried before, the Balance Me Pure Skin Face Wash which I think I received as a magazine freebie a year or two ago and I remember really liking it. It’s a basic cleanser that didn’t irritate my sensitive skin. I’ve tried a couple of Balance Me products and really liked them so I’m glad I have this face wash again.
Next up is one of my favourite products from the box, the Bubble T Hibiscus & Acai Berry Tea Bath Fizzer. I love bath bombs, they are some of my favourite products to use and I know this one will be divine. I can smell how heavenly it is even before I have opened it – the scent is very berry-like, sweet and floral but in a very unique way. I haven’t tried a bath bomb with a scent quite like this and I love it! I am going to be using it tonight as a pampering treat as I passed my practical driving test today!
This product is one I’ve been wanting to try since I came out (maybe two years ago?) as I love hydrating primers. I’m using the Too Faced Hangover Primer currently but I think this Illamasqua Hydra Veil Primer is my new favourite. It has a smooth, gel like consistency and it does help my skin feel more hydrated through the day and it keeps my makeup a little fresher for the day. Also the little tub is so cute!
One thing I love about subscription boxes is that I get to try products from brands I haven’t heard of and this lipstick is from Mellow which is a brand I haven’t ever heard of but it’s so pretty. The lipstick is in the shade Madness which in the tube looks like a deep red/berry matte shade but on the lips it’s more pink. I love the packaging, it’s gorgeous, sleek and pretty.
Last but not least, the Philip Kingsley Elasticizer which is such a cult, famous product in the beauty world and I have had a similar sized tube of it previously. It is a pre-shampoo hair treatment to add volume and softness; I have been neglecting my hair so I can’t wait to use it.
