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 is ‘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 regular box, this month’s products were packaged in a little beauty bag, in the most beautiful summery green shade, worth £12.00
Honestly, I don’t think 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. I expect 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. As my husband is fully aware, I do not travel light.
Molton Brown Coastal Cypress & Sea Fennel Bath and Shower Gel
Worth £10.00 for 100ml
Oh my word, this smells so 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, you have to breathe in the aroma three times when you open the packet. 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.
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 its (incredibly dull) natural colour. But I still used it as conditioner is conditioner, right? It says to apply to damp hair and leave for 5 minutes before rinsing.
It smelt nice, but I wouldn’t say that it made a massive difference to my hair, which is disappointing. Maybe people with coloured hair see better results?
Glov Rainbow Drop Brush
I already have a tangle teaser, but you can never 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 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, making me feel sticky and horrible. This suntan lotion feels slightly lighter than other suntan lotions I’ve tried. Although it says fragrance-free, it does have a slight scent to it.
Ultrasun SPF30 Lip Protect
I love lip balms! 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 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, and 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 excellent, so I’m hoping that I’ll be wowed again next month!
Also, lookfantastic usually includes a little magazine with each beauty box, which gives you more detail on the products, 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.
