I’ve been a strong fan of these beauty subscription boxes for a little while now. Before LookFantastic, I had only subscribed to Birchbox and a few times with Glossybox which I never got round to reviewing on my blog. Maybe I will one day soon.
Anyway this post is all about my LF beauty box and what I got in the July edition.
I no longer subscribe to any boxes for longer than a couple of months simply because I don’t ever use the products quick enough. I have a habit of saving the goods and either giving them away to friends or family. Saying that, I may just use some to host a blog giveaway instead! 🙂
Let me start by saying that the LookFantastic box is GIANT compared to Birchbox and Glossybox and so I assumed there would be bigger samples – yay! I was wrong. They were the same travel-sized products but just in a larger box. I found the box a little hard to open too as the box is not as smooth as the other two I mentioned previously.
Here’s a few snaps of the contents in my #LFSUMMERLOVIN box…
I got a lovely travel-sized edition of Elle magazine which was lovely to read as I’ve only been reading my Gurgle magazines recently. The following goodies I got in my #LFBeautyBox are:
- MiTi snag-free hair bobbles (pack of 3)
- Bella Pierre lip and cheek tint
- Nuxe Huile Prodigieuse (shimmer multi-purpose dry oil)
- This Works ‘In Transit Camera Close Up’ (mask, primer & moisturiser)
- Benefit Goof Proof eyebrow pencil
- Kebelo Silk anti-frizz hair serum
MiTi hair bobbles
Because I tie my hair back quite a bit, normal hairbands leave a bit of tension against my scalp due to the pulling but these bobbles are a godsend as I can’t feel them in my hair at all.
Bella Pierre lip and cheek stain
The lip and cheek stain is a little too pink for me but that is just my personal preference. I preferred using it as a cheek stain than lip stain as it has a slightly matte look on my lips. My lips get dry really easily so I think that’s why it’s not really right for me.
This Works ‘In Transit Camera Close Up’
This all-in-one mask/primer/moisturiser was nice and easy to apply. It did feel rich when I applied it on to my face but it soon sank in really well and felt almost weightless on my skin. My skin is going through a little dehydration at the moment and this moisturiser helped to keep my skin moisturised without leaving a heavy feel like some other moisturisers I’ve used before.
Nuxe Huile Prodigeuse
I got the original Nuxe dry oil in my April Birchbox which I have really enjoyed using and said I wanted to try the shimmer version. The golden shimmer is subtle and perfect on sunny days or on holidays.
Kebelo Silk anti-frizz hair serum
Humidity can sometimes cause my hair to frizz which I usually tame with a leave-in conditioner. This hair serum worked really well on my hair and didn’t leave it feeling greasy at all. My hair was left more manageable and felt less bulky. Perfect!
Benefit Goof Proof eyebrow pencil
I’ve always known Benefit to be a really good make-up brand and they didn’t let me down with their new eyebrow pencil. The pencil stayed on all day which is perfect for me as I am not good at topping up my makeup throughout the day. It was slightly tricky for me to first it during the first attempt as it’s an angled shape but I got used to it super quick. I actually prefer it over my Sleek brow kit which I never thought I’d say!
