LOOKFANTASTIC BEAUTY BOX / JUNE 2018
Let’s say hello to the new June LFBeautyBox! This month’s theme is Into The Blue, focusing on hydration and illumination in preparation for the dryer, warmer weather. It’s definitely a good theme – my skin has been getting drier and drier!
If you’re new to my LookFantastic Beauty Box unboxings, there’s a whole load of them here! It’s a subscription service where you get between five and seven beauty products a month for between £13-15 a month (depending on how many months you sign up for. I love getting a treat each month! You can sign up here if you want to, and if you use the code HELEN-R5E or HOLLY-R1YD you can get some money off your first box.
As always, we get two magazines – Elle (worth £4.30), which is always a bit of a luxury to get, and the mini magazine called Beauty Box which contains everything you need to know about the box contents as well as other articles relating to the theme.
The first item we had is a sachet of Real Chemistry Environment Rescue Essential Day Cream, which is an anti-pollution day cream/serum. It’s 10ml so only a sample size but according to the back of the packet it’s worth £6. I like the uniqueness of the packaging – rather than the usual tube or square sachet, we have a flower-shaped sachet with an actual nozzle.
The next item is the Elemis Superfood Facial Wash, which is a pro-biotic gel cleanser. It has a multitude of green ingredients like wheatgrass and kale, so it must be good for your skin! It apparently refreshes and revives your skin. The full size is £25 and 150ml, whereas this is 30ml and worth £5.
This product was hinted at in the last month’s Beauty Box magazine – it’s the Rituals Ritual of Dao body cream! I’ve never tried anything from Rituals before as it’s quite boujie, but I’m excited to smother myself with this! It claims that it’ll bring peace and tranquility into your life. I’m not sure if a body cream can achieve that, but I’ll definitely give it ago. It’s 70ml, which is full-size but it does also come in a supersize version of 220ml. This one is worth £6.
Next is our only makeup item in the box this month, and it’s the Studio 10 Liquid Foil cream eyeshadow. This is a glittery gold cream shadow that I think would be best used as an eyeshadow topper. You can’t buy this from what I’ve seen, but bear in mind a kohl eyeliner costs £22, I think this cream shadow could easily be worth £20.
This is probably something I’ll put straight into the giveaway pile. It’s the Vita Liberate Fabulous Self-Tanning Gradual Lotion, which is a gradual fake tan. I never fake tan, as I know it’ll be awful on me (plus I don’t want to buy a foundation just for when I’m tanned), so it’s not my favourite thing to receive. However I know a lot of people will be happy! This is 50ml, so half the size of the full-size. It’s worth £9.75.
This is another item I’ll probably give away. I’ve had this before, possibly in the M&S Beauty Advent Calendar last year and it’s the Christophe Robin Cleansing Volumising Paste. If there’s one thing my hair doesn’t need, it’s more volume. So this product will definitely not be something I’ll ever use. It’s rather expensive at £42.50 for 250ml, but as this is only 40ml, it’s worth £6.80.
Finally, we have a face mask from Madara. This is the SOS Instant Moisture & Radiance Hydra Mask which is ‘scientifically proven to rehydrate skin’. I love a face mask so I’ll happily try this out (possibly in a vlog?). It does have some excessive packaging, though – this cardboard box could fit four of the masks in it, which only contains 12ml. The full-size is 60ml and £35, making this one worth £7.
Seven items is pretty generous! The box is worth £68.45 in total, which is not bad for £13 a month. Remember, if you do want to sign up for the LFBeautyBox, you can do so here and use code HELEN-R5E or HOLLY-R1YD for money off.
