It’s that time of the month again (no, not that time!) It’s June’s lookfantastic Beauty Box time! Yay! The theme this month – ‘Staycation. For the ultimate stay-at-home pamper’. Perfect. Just what we need right now. Let’s get pampering!
The Beauty Bag
Rather than the normal box, this months products were packaged in a little beauty bag, in the most beautiful summery green shade, worth £12.00
Personally, I don’t think that I would pay £12.00 for it. It is slightly on the small side so you wouldn’t be able to fit much in it. As my husband is fully aware, I do not travel light. I expect that it would be good for chucking a few make-up products in for a day out, but definitely not for travelling. Unless you travel light of course.
Molton Brown Coastal Cypress & Sea Fennel Bath and Shower Gel
Worth £10.00 for 100ml
Oh my word, this smells soooo good! So fresh. This shower gel promises to nourish, moisturise and revitalise your skin. It really does leave your skin feeling nourished and a little goes a long way.
Shangpree Aroma Blend Moisture Mask
According to the instructions, when you open the packet you have to breathe the aroma in 3 times. Okay…The mask says that it is deeply hydrating and will make skin softer, smoother and brighter. It contains Rose Water, Rosewood and Ylang Ylang. Fancy.
It did make my skin feel lovely and supple after using but oh my word, there was so much product on the mask. It was running everywhere and even went into my eye. Thankfully, it didn’t sting!
Josh Wood Colour Everything Mask
This deep conditioner hydrates and adds shine to your coloured hair. My hair is currently it’s (extremely boring) natural colour but I still used it as conditioner is conditioner, right? Apply to damp hair and leave on for 5 minutes before rinsing.
It smelt nice but I wouldn’t say that it made a massive difference to my hair which is a bit disappointing. Maybe people with coloured hair see better results?
Glov Rainbow Drop Brush
I already have a tangle teaser but you never can have too many hairbrushes! This brush can be used on wet or dry hair which is good as when I condition my hair, I do like to comb through it, just to ensure the conditioner is coating all the ends of my hair. Plus it gets rid of any loose hairs!
Polaar Very High Protection Sun Cream SPF 50+
I hate the feel of suntan lotion on my skin. It’s like I can feel the layer of cream on my skin and it makes me feel sticky and horrible. This suntan lotion actually feels a bit lighter compared to other suntan lotion’s I’ve tried. Although it says fragrance free, it does in fact have a slight scent to it.
Ultrasun SPF30 Lip Protect
This lip balm is infused with blackcurrant seed oil which apparently reduces inflammation and chapping, however, the product is fragrance-free. I personally would have loved a blackcurrant scent!
I’ll be honest, I’m actually a bit disappointed with June’s lookfantastic Beauty Box. For an ‘ultimate stay-at-home pamper’ I would like to see products like a body scrub, moisturiser, nail varnish, cuticle oil, bubble bath/bath bomb, things like that.
I know some people probably like receiving sun protection products, but personally I don’t think of pampering or luxury when I think of sun protection. This is the 3rd Beauty Box I’ve received from lookfantastic. The first two were amazing so I’m hoping that next month I’ll be wowed again!
Also, lookfantastic normally include a little magazine with each beauty box which gives you a bit more detail on the products and interviews etc. Due to Coronavirus, they’ve temporarily suspended the magazine. Instead, we were meant to be receiving an email with a link to the online magazine but unfortunately, I haven’t received it yet!
And that’s June’s lookfantastic Beauty Box. If you would like to subscribe to the lookfantastic Beauty Box you can do so via their website.
