LOOKFANTASTIC BEAUTY BOX / JULY 2018
I actually forgot about the LFBeautyBox this month. Despite usually getting excited for a few days before it arrives usually, this month it completely slipped my mind!

If you haven’t seen any of my unboxings before, I have a whole category here! I get the LookFantastic Beauty Box every single month and have done for 18 months now. The box is £13-15 a month and you can sign up here. If you use the code HELEN-R5E you’ll get some money off your first box! This month had the theme of Golden Goddess.
First of all, we recieved our usual Elle magazine for the month. This is worth £4.30 usually, but we get a complimentary copy in every single LFBeautyBox, which is a nice added extra treat. We also have the Beauty Box magazine, which is mini ‘zine that outlines the products in each box and includes some articles that are relevant to the theme and to the website.
Our first item is skincare, and it’s the SVR Sebiaclear Gel Moussant, which is a soap-free purifying and exfoliating cleanser. I have SO many cleansers to use up; I do prefer a balm cleanser to take off my makeup, but use this sort in the morning (if I remember). It’s for oily and sensitive skin, whereas I have combo skin that isn’t sensitive, but as it’s such a small cleanser I’ll use it up anyway. This has 10ml inside, which is obviously a sample size. The full size is £11 and 200ml, which means this one is worth just 55p.
Another cleanser! It’s not normally that we get two of the same type of products in the LFBeautyBox, however we have a cleanser from First Aid Beauty, which is always a popular brand. This is the Pure Skin Face Cleanser, which has an antioxident booster to remove oils, makeup and dirt. It smells like soap, so I’m a little concerned that it’ll dry out my skin. This one is 28.3g, which is a travel-size version. The full size is £15 for 142g, meaning this one is worth £2.99.
Next is the Lancer Omega Hydrating Oil, which is a lightweight facial oil with ‘10% ferment complex’ (whatever that is), that delivers essential hydration, fatty acids, polyphenols and antioxidents for soft, healthy skin. It came in a little 5ml dropper bottle, which is very cute and quite fancy. The full-size is 30ml and costs a whopping £75(!!!) and this one is worth £12.50.
Next is something I probably won’t ever use – an Aftersun! I don’t go out in the sun (hence why I’m so pale) so I never need after sun care. This one is a Filorga UV-Bronze tan activator that helps bring out any tan that you may have hiding away under a burn, which is good if you forget the SPF one day and don’t like looking like a lobster. It has nutrients and oils in it that will help soothe your sore skin. This is a travel size (but a decent travel-size) at 50ml. The full-size is 200ml and £25, which means this one is worth £6.25.
Next is a shampoo, which is useful for those who are going on holiday soon. This is the Kerastase Reflection Bain Chromatique multi-protecting shampoo for coloured/highlighted hair. Unfortunately I can’t use this as I’ve just started the curly girl method (there will be a post about that in 2 months time, I hope…) but my mum enjoys this product so she’s asked for me to send it to her. This is a travel-sized product at 80ml which is why I said it was perfect for holidays. The full size is 250ml and £19.50 which is expensive for a shampoo, so this one is worth £6.34.
Finally, the only makeup product! This is the Freematic Highlighter from Doucce, which is a full-size item worth $14, which is around £10.58. The shade is Sparked Ray, which is a nude shade, that has hints of gold and pink. I think it’ll be very slightly too dark for my skintone, however it does look like a nice shade that would suit a lot of people. It’s quite sparkly and glowy without being icy and in-your-face.
And that’s everything! The total worth for this month’s box was a grand total of £43.46, which is definitely not as much as most other boxes, but as long as it’s more than the £13 a month, I don’t mind! If you do want to sign up, you can do so here and use the code HELEN-R5E for some money off. If you want to buy anything else from LookFantastic, use code HOLLY-R1YD.
