On opening the Look Fantastic July Beauty Box, I noticed that there were a few brands that seem to be favourites of Look Fantastic as this month’s box again included something from Balance Me as well as from Nuxe and Lord & Berry, all of which I’ve received products in past beauty boxes. There was only really one item that peaked my interest in this box and that was the Everything Balm from Trilogy, otherwise besides that there are a couple of face oils and lip liner which I wouldn’t normally use as well as some face wash and shampoo. The total cost of the 6 items are valued at just over £29 and at only £15 a box this is quite worth it if you use all the items.
Contents of the Look Fantastic July 2015 Beauty Box:
Trilogy Everything Balm 10ml – Worth £2.50
This pocket sized Everything Balm is a great little balm that can be used for absolutely everything and is definitely my favourite product in the box. It can be used as a lip balm, heel balm, hand cream, massage oil, nappy cream, face moisturiser and body moisturiser and it smells amazing! The balm has quite a light texture, is good as a lip balm and to soothe chapped lips, it’s a bit too greasy for my liking to be used as a hand cream but it’s great for rough heels and to soften any dry patches on your face or body. The size that you receive in the beauty box is about a quarter of the size of the full sized product but it’s perfect for carrying around and should last a long time.
Lord & Berry Ultimate Lipliner (Nude) – Worth £9
This lip liner is supposed to be easy to use, highly blendable and comfortable to wear. It is waterproof and enriched with LXB complex to soften and protect the skin around the lips. I don’t use lip liner so I’ll be passing this one on to a friend but judging on the quality of the Lord & Berry eye pencil that I received in the March beauty box, I’m sure it will not fail to please.
I’ve been using the same face wash for the past 10 years so I very rarely try other face washes but I was pleasantly surprised by this one. It gets rid of makeup and impurities easily without having to scrub a lot and left my face feeling really clean and refreshed without leaving it feeling dry or tight. It’s 98.8% natural too which is always a plus!
Kebelo Clarifying Shampoo 50ml – Worth £2.09
The Kebelo Clarifying Shampoo is supposed to be used once or twice a month to deep cleanse and exfoliate your hair and get rid of built up impurities from your usual hair products. Interestingly it can also be used as an invigorating body wash! It left my hair feeling squeaky clean and not overly soft which is what I don’t like about most other shampoos. Even though I don’t use a lot of hair products I’ll definitely be using this shampoo once a month to “detox”my hair!
Nuxe Huile Prodigieuse 10ml – Worth £2.80
This is basically the same Nuxe oil that I received in the May beauty box but without the shimmer. I have been using the other one on my legs and will use this one on my legs too as it leaves my skin feeling really silky and soft without feeling too greasy and is better than most body lotions.
Monu Firming Fiji Facial Oil 40ml – Worth £10.40
I try not to use facial oils because I’m worried that it will clog up my pores and cause spots but I’ve used it a couple of times already and haven’t had a breakout so far, so fingers crossed! This facial oil smells great and has a greasier feel compared to the Nuxe Huile Prodigieuse. It contains plant oils to nourish and protect whilst firming and toning the skin. I have quite oily skin naturally so I haven’t noticed any difference in the texture of my skin, also my skin tone has stayed the same, hopefully if I continue using it it will help firm it up a little!
