The Look Fantastic May 2015 beauty box is the third beauty box I’ve got from them, I actually got a 6 month beauty box subscription after being so pleased with the first one I’d received. The £75 for the 6 month subscription is well worth it as it works out to be only £12.50 per box plus free worldwide delivery! This month’s box is worth £45 and again contained 6 different hair and beauty products the majority of which I hadn’t heard of before but it’s a great way to discover new products!
Contents of the Look Fantastic May 2015 Beauty Box:
Eylure Pre-Glued Lashes – Worth £5.05
This is the first thing that caught my attention when I opened the beauty box. I’ve always wanted to try wearing false eyelashes but I’m hopeless at applying the lash glue and somehow always manage to get it everywhere that I’ve never actually successfully worn any before. These Eylure lashes are pre-glued so it solves half my problem, the other half being the actual application of the lashes! But once I’d trimmed them down a little to fit my eye shape they were actually very easy to apply, just be careful not to rip out some of your own eyelashes when you remove them as the adhesive is quite strong! They stayed on perfectly for the whole night that I wore them and they are also reusable although I don’t know how many uses the adhesive will last for. Anyway I’m just happy that there’s another easier option available for falsh eyelashes 🙂 The lashes I received were quite natural looking (you may receive a different set in your beauty box) and you can’t really tell that I’m wearing falsies so I may try getting some of their other lashes for a more volumised look.
Erno Laszlo Transphuse Night Serum 2ml – Worth £14.40
This serum is supposed to work whilst you sleep and reduces the appearance of fine lines making your skin smoother and more youthful as well as prevents additional wrinkles from appearing. It has a very light texture and is easy to apply. The tube you receive in the beauty box is very small, only 2ml, but considering the full size is 15ml and costs £108 the one you receive is quite a generous size! You only need to apply a very small amount of the serum nightly so you may be able to use the tube over a couple of weeks to see if it works before forking out for the full size tube.
Omorovicza Thermal Cleansing Balm 5ml – Worth £4.60
This cleansing balm is award-winning and is self-proclaimed as the ‘best cleanser you will ever use’. It is infused with natural minerals and oils to remove all impurities and make-up including waterproof mascara, as well as detoxifying and nourishing the skin, leaving it soft and hydrated. This cleansing balm is different to the facial cleansers I would normally use as it has an oily texture and I would normally go for a facial scrub. I always remove my makeup before washing my face anyway but the cleansing balm seemed to get rid of any remaining makeup and clean my face quite well and leave my skin feeling silkily smooth. However it did leave a slightly greasy residue which I didn’t really like. It has a lovely orange blossom scent though, uplifting and refreshing in the morning.
This is a multi-usage dry oil that gives a golden shimmer to your face, body and hair whilst nourishing and repairing at the same time. It’s supposed to leave your hair glossy and full of volume but unfortunately my fine hair didn’t really like it and ended up looking greasy and limp instead. It’s also a bit greasy for my face but it gives my arms and legs a nice natural glow and is not too shimmery either so I think I’ll use it instead of body lotion. It would look great on tanned skin in the summer too!
This hair mask is enriched with pure prickly pear seed oil which is one of the rarest and most expensive oils in the world. It is great for dry damaged hair as well as coloured hair but is suitable for all hair types and repairs and protects your hair from split ends and further damage. It did wonders on my dry colour-treated hair leaving it extrememly soft and shiny so I’ll probably invest in the full size tub when it runs out.
Tanworx Self Tanning Lotion Fair to Medium 100ml – Worth £6.97
I’ve only ever used self tan once before and that turned out to be a streaky orange mess so I gave this away to a friend instead. She just tried it over the weekend and gave me the thumbs up on it and said that it’s given her a nice natural glow but it’s important to exfoliate well and moisturise before using the self tan so that the finished result is even. Guess I’ll try that next time! 😉
