LOOKFANTASTIC BEAUTY BOX – MAY 2018
LookFantastic Beauty Box unboxing time has rapidly come around again and this month had the theme of Beauty Bazaar! If you are new to my #LFBeautyBox unboxings, it’s a monthly subscription box that contains six or seven items from any type of beauty (but mostly skincare and makeup). It’s £13-15 a month depending on how long you sign up for, and you can do so by clicking here! Also, if you use the code HELEN-R5E you’ll get some money off.
As always, we received Elle magazine as a bonus item. It’s worth £4.30 and I always appreciate an extra magazine to read, especially as Glamour isn’t a monthly magazine anymore! We also have a mini Beauty Box magazine to browse through – it contains info about the products in the box as well as extra articles.
The first item we received was the Spotlight Teeth White Strips! This is something new – I don’t think we’ve ever got a tooth whitening product before – and I’m definitely interested in trying them out. You get four strips in this packet meaning it is a sample-sized product, so I’m not sure whether I’ll see any difference after using them. In the full-size packet you get 28 strips and you’re supposed to use them (two strips per use) every day for two weeks. However we get enough for two days. This sample is worth £2.85.
Next is the Avant RNA Radical Firmness Anti-Ageing Serum. This is only a tiny 5ml sample but considering the full-size (30ml) is £104(!) I’m not surprised. I’m going to eke it out for as long as possible to make it worth it. Apparantly this serum helps with all aspects of ageing: wrinkles, dark circles, pigmentation and sagging skin! Never too early to prevent wrinkles, I guess! This sample is worth a HUGE £17.33. For 5ml. I’m astounded.
This Works In Transit Camera Close-Up is a product name I have NO idea about. I was baffled for a few minutes until I realised it was a face mask, moisturiser and primer all-in-one! This is 20ml which is half the size of the full-size product, meaning this is worth £15! I don’t know how well this is going to work, but you just rub it into your face like a normal moisturiser and go on with your day. This could cut out a couple of products from my skincare routine and I’m all for a lazy routine.
A facemask! I love a facemask so I was excited to find this in my box this month. This is the SkinRepublic Bubble Purifying & Charcoal sheet mask, which sounds amazing – I have never tried a bubble mask and charcoal masks agree with my skin! I might try this in a vlog, so subscribe to my vlog channel if you want to see that! This is obviously a one-use product, but it’s sold the same in shops. It’s worth £5.50!
Sleek isn’t a brand we usually get in these boxes, but we got the Sleek Contour Kit in Medium! I’m actually a little disappointed because this is way too dark for me, so I prefer to get things that aren’t skin-tone reliant in subscription boxes – it makes it more inclusive! However I’m sure it’s a nice product and it is full-size, so worth £6.99. I’m going to be putting this into a giveaway at some point on my YouTube channel or Instagram, so make sure you’re subscribed/following!
Finally, we got an Eyeko Eye Do Liquid Liner. Another product I’m disappointed in as I never ever wear liquid liner! I’ll also be putting this in the giveaway. This is 10ml/2g which is full-size, so it’s worth £16! I’ve heard good things about Eyeko as a brand, although I’ve only ever tried a mascara from them, but I’m sure the liquid liner is great.
And that’s everything! There’s a total worth of £67.97, which is pretty great for £13 a month. Again, if you do want to sign up, you can do so here and use code HELEN-R5E for some money off.
