We’re one week into October and I still have to go through the September Lookfantastic Beauty Box! I’m waiting for the new one to arrive the next week, as far as I sneak-peeked it on the Instagram, it’s really nice! The September edition celebrated the 4th birthday of the LF beauty box with 6 beauty treats. Let’s go through!
My most anticipated item was the Aromatherapy Associates Revive Morning Bath & Shower Oil. I’ve only heard amazing things about these shower oils, but they are really pricey and retail at whopping €50. And now I understand why so many people are willing to invest that much into a shower oil, this thing is incredible! Packed with neroli, grapefruit, juniper berry and rosemary essential oils, it creates an intense aromatherapy session straight in the morning. I already love it, almost used it up and am pretty sure I’ll buy a full version at one point. Another product that sounded interesting is the Omorovicza Ultramoor Mud Mask. My hopes for this mask were high too, but there was so little product inside that I really can’t say anything in particular. There was enough for two uses, but I would gladly trade this cute glass pot for a less luxurious one and more mask. It did dry up nicely (way prettier than any other mud masks I’ve tried so far), but that’s it.
The Mane’n Tail Original Hoof Maker Hand & Nail Cream is a fast-absorbing cream that also nourishes and strengthens nails. Although I hate its packaging, it does absorb quickly leaving a nice feeling on the skin. I also like the Lord & Berry Strobing Pencil in a pretty champagne shade. Years have passed since I had a highlighting pencil and I forgot how handy they are! I love applying it in the inner corner of my eyes and under the eyebrows.
Then there are two products that I haven’t tested yet, the Philip Kingsley Elasticizer and the Eve Lom cleanser. The Elasticizer is supposed to make hair more soft, stretchy and strong. The cleanser, however, exfoliates, decongests, softens and removes makeup (even waterproof one!). I’m interested to see how both of these perform, but they will have to wait because it’s impossible to use that many items at the same time. :)
I have to admit that I was really pleasantly surprised with this beauty box, there are several incredible products that really caught my attention months ago and I finally got the opportunity to try them out. Lookfantastic already started selling their Advent Calendar and as far as I saw, the products cycle between beauty boxes and advent calendars. So if your don’t want to commit to a subscription, this calendar would be a smart choice!
