I’m pretty happy with this month’s beauty box, it contained mostly face products as well as brands such as Ren and Label.m that I already use and absolutely love although I was surprised to find the Balance Me Revitalising Body Wash again which I actually received just 2 months ago in my April Beauty Box. This month’s Beauty Box again contained 6 items valued at around £50.
Contents of the Look Fantastic June 2015 Beauty Box:
Ren Glycolactic Radiance Renewal Mask 15ml – Worth £9.60
Ren is one of my favourite beauty brands, I currently use their Seaweed and Sage Body Wash and also their Neroli and Grapefruit Body Cream, they both smell great and are really gentle on the skin which is what I like about Ren products. I’d heard of their Glycolactic Mask before and had been wanting to try it as it’s been highly raved about and is supposed to be great for improving skin tone and radiance as well as reducing the appearance of wrinkles. After cleansing my face this morning I applied the mask and left it on for 10 minutes as per the instructions. It has a sticky texture and very mild fruity fragrance, the mask doesn’t set so be careful not to get it everywhere when you have it on. After washing it off, my face definitely looked brighter and more radiant and was super soft to touch. I was quite happy with the results so I’ll probably get the full size once I run out!
Balance Me Revitalising Hand and Body Wash 100ml – Worth £4.16
(This item won’t be found in all beauty boxes this month as you may receive an alternative product from either Tigi, Alterna Haircare, Redken or Korres)
I already received this in my April Beauty Box (check out my Look Fantastic April Beauty Box Review for the review on this product) so although it would be nice to have received a different product to try I’ve already used up my other one so I’m sure another one will come in handy for bringing on a long holiday or at the gym.
Murad Rapid Collagen Infusion 5ml – Worth £10.83
I’ve actually used this before as I was given a sample of it when I purchased something from LookFantastic earlier this year but I didn’t see any benefit when using it. It’s designed to help promote healthy collagen and hydration levels and to give a more youthful appearance by reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles but when using it I found that it mattified the appearance of my skin and made it look dull. It absorbs fairly easily and to be fair I only used it a couple of times so I’ll continue using it to see if there is any improvement in my skin.
I was really pleased to receive this as I’ve been looking recently for serums that help even out skin tone. The Caudalie Vinoperfect Radiance Serum is the no. 1 anti-dark spot product in France and it’s supposed to treat pigmentation, acne scars, uneven skin tone and sun damage as well as boost radiance and prevent dark spots. The serum is quite light and absorbs easily but it does leave my skin feeling slightly sticky so I will probably only use it at night. It actually reminds me of the Caudalie Polyphenol C15 Anti-Wrinkle Defense Serum which I received in the March Beauty Box as it has a similar texture and exactly the same scent. This 10ml tube is a third of the size of the full sized product and it should last me a couple of weeks to really see if there are any results.
This day cream is supposed to hydrate and revive the skin and it is packed full of antioxidants to prevent signs of ageing. I didn’t find it to be anything special, it’s just a normal light cream that did leave my skin soft and hydrated and it wasn’t too greasy however it would be good if it had SPF as I wouldn’t normally use a day cream without. The Nuxe Creme Prodigieuse that I received is for normal/combination skin but they also have a version for dry skin.
Label.m Blow Out Spray 50ml – Worth £4
(This item won’t be found in all beauty boxes this month as you may receive an alternative product from either KMS or L’anza)
Really happy to have received this in my box as my hairdresser usually uses this product when blow drying my hair. It gives my hair a bit more volume and texture as well as leaves it smelling great! It also protects your locks from heat damage and UV rays. The spray that you receive is a mini version so it’s great for bringing on holiday or to the gym.
Hope you’ve enjoyed my review of the Look Fantastic June Beauty Box, if you’d like to get one, the June edition is still available from LookFantastic.com and they are also taking pre-orders for the July Beauty Box.
