LookFantastic – July 2017: Pretty In Paradise

You’ve seen the sneak peek of the LookFantastic July box, now it’s time of the full review! The theme for the July box is ‘pretty in paradise’ which is such a great theme for this time of the year with summer holidays just around the corner.

The box design for the ‘pretty in paradise’ box is just gorgeous and very instagrammable. There are seven items in the fantastic LookFantastic July box including skincare, haircare, makeup, toothpaste and even a supplement drink! The range of products in this months box is great as there’s something for everyone. There are also lots of new brands that I haven’t tried before such as Regenerate Enamel Science, Hot Makeup, Imedeen and Mimitika.
Top: Jelly Pong Pong Highlighting Pencil, Bottom: Hot Makeup Bronzer

Let’s start with the two makeup products, the Hot Makeup Bronzing Powder which is a great addition to a summer box and it’s full sized! It does have visible golden shimmer within the powder but thankfully it isn’t very visible on the skin. In the pan the bronzer looks quite warm toned and maybe not great for my very pale skin but when used with a fluffy brush, it looks gorgeous! It adds a hint of warmth to the skin with a slight glow.

The final makeup item is the Jelly Pong Pong Bare Necessities Highlighting Pencil which in the mini booklet included in the box, states that the pencil can be used as a illuminator, concealer, base and liner. I doesn’t quite work for me as a highlighter/illuminator or concealer but it’s amazing as a liner on the lower waterline as it makes my eyes look brighter, less tired and bigger! It’s also great as an eyeshadow base.

Another favourite product from the July box, the Moroccan Oil Hydrating Styling Cream. Moroccan Oil is one of my favourite higher end haircare brands, I love their conditioners and the famous Moroccan Oil treatment oil. I’ve been using the hydrating cream on damp hair since I received the box and it really helps to smooth, moisturise and reduce frizz.

Next up, two of the more unconventional beauty box items, the Regenerate Enamel Science Toothpaste which is 14ml so it is a perfect size for travelling as is the hydrating cream, sun cream and highlighting pencil. The toothpaste helps to restore tooth enamel by restoring mineral content. The toothpaste is very thick and only has a slightly minty taste which is great as I personally don’t like very minty toothpaste and it doesn’t cause any sensitivity. I’ll definitely be taking this mini on holiday with me in the summer!

A liquid food supplement drink is an item I haven’t received in any beauty subscription box before and I think it’s an interesting addition although I don’t know if it’s suitable for vegetarians so I won’t be using it. The drink contains vitamin C and collagen in a mini 15ml bottle.

Lastly, onto the skincare, both of which are from brands that I haven’t tried before. The Mimitika Face Sun Cream claims to enhance tanning and it contains SPF 50 which is fantastic. I love the colourful packaging and the mini 10ml jar would be great for a weekend away. The sun cream has a silky texture that absorbs quickly and isn’t sticky or heavy at all! It leaves the skin feeling incredibly soft, smooth and moisturised – very impressed!
Finally, the Cowshed Chamomile Refreshing Toner which contains soothing chamomile and lavender  which makes the toner smell so lovely! In the booklet it’s supposed to have a spritz cap but this mini version doesn’t. However it’s a gentle but very effective toner that removes makeup that my cleanser hasn’t managed to remove.

Our score: 9.6/ 10

Overall, I love the box design and the theme for this box as well as all of the mini sizes that are perfect for travelling with. I adore the Cowshed toner, Mimitika sun cream, Moroccan Oil hydrating cream and the Jelly Pong Pong highlighter. The bronzer is also lovely and the toothpaste is fantastic and perfect for travelling too. The contents for this months box may not be very fun or exciting but they're practical, super effective and perfect for travelling - one of the best LookFantastic boxes I've ever received!
