Another day, another beauty box. Seems like everyone is jumping on the mystery box bandwagon. Look Fantastic have been doing theirs for a couple of months now. It is priced at £15 with free delivery, and if you’re at all familiar with LF, you’ll know that they have some pretty good brands on their roster so I was expecting good things. And how right I was!
Glam Glow! Thanks Look Fantastic, that’s all I wanted! Seriously, this is the Youthmud Tingle Exfoliate Treatment (face pack to us mere mortals) and I have been wanting to try this for so long. This is a 15g sample so a decent size, I expect to get at least three uses out of it. I’ll let you know my thoughts very soon.
This is the Monu Soothing Touch Recovery Balm. It’s a really soft cream and with it’s evening primrose fragrance feels like a comforting hug for your face. That’s a really strange description, but the gist is I like it and my winter skin will love it.
Nuxe Nuxellence Jeunesse Youth and Radiance Revealing Fluid. A moisturiser by a fancy name. It’s a bit disappointing to receive two facial moisturisers to be completely honest, although Nuxe is always a welcome brand in my book.
This is the best selling Eve Lom Cleanser. Apparently it’s amazing, but all I know is that it smells horrendous. Like aniseed and cloves and all kinds of other stuff I don’t want near my face. I will try it. Once I’ve used up everything else I have. I’m sure I’ll be converted if it’s as good as the magazine editors claim it is…
Next I got the New CID I-Crayon Lip and Cheek Tint in Rose. I actually have this already, I think it came free in Glamour or something a few months ago. Anyway, it’s very nice. I prefer it on the lips as it’s slightly glossy but a good colour for both.
Lastly, I got the Hand Chemistry Intense Youth Complex hand cream. I’m not usually excited by hand cream as I have so many but I really love this. Maybe it’s the matte box, the neon pink, or the super sciencey looking diagram but I’m quite taken by it all. Apparently it has some sort of mushroom derivative in it which is 400 times more moisturising than hyraluronic acid, which was previously thought to be the most moisturising thing on the planet – 10,000 times more so than water! The beauty world is mental is it not? Anyways, it smells nice – kinda zesty. I’m not worried about my hands showing signs of age just yet so I think I give this to my mum (no offence intended, Ma!) to test out the wild claims.
Pretty good box all in all. Definitely think it’s good value for money and it seems to be very consistent in terms of quality. If you want to pre-order the December box, you can do so here. Otherwise it’s out on the 2nd December and will probably sell out that day.
Have you tried any of these products? What do you think of them?
