Beautybox: Lookfantastic June

Hii everyone!

 It’s time for the monthly beautybox! This time Lookfantastic.com created a beautybox for the jet setter’s lifestyle: #LFJETSETTER. This month’s box contains products for when you’re on the go and need all of the essentials for  any kind of travel, be it business or pleasure. All of the products included in the box are travel sized, so there is no need to worry if you should end up running across the airport, your carry-on luggage in hand! You can also simply toss these mini must-haves  into your suitcase and be prepared for your journey!  Plus, we have all had that fear… You know what I mean. The fear that your precious HG and favorite (possibly even LE!) products could be *gasp!* lost by the airport!  Nooo!!!! With these mini items, you can travel with the peace of mind that comes from knowing that your full-sized, full-priced and more luxurious  favorites will be safe at home! So why wait? Let’s see what’s inside!

 If you are not familiar with the world of beautyboxes, you will be soon! Beautyboxes are available by subscription, just like magazines. Each month you will receive  a new box, with different beauty items to try out. This is such a fun and easy way to discover new brands and see which products work for your specific needs. You may find new favorites that you wouldn’t have even been aware of!

Lookfantastic.com has the best beautyboxes, compared to the other companies in the UK and The Netherlands that I have tried. I’ve had unfortunate experiences with other subscription boxes because it was clear that the sub-par products included were not worth the price of the subscription. Despite this, I thought I’d try again. Finally! I found the beautybox I’ve been searching for! Lookfantastic.com always surprises me! To see detailed instructions on how to order your own beautybox subscription, as well as some insight about which offer suits your tastes, take a peek at my previous blogpost about the beautybox from March, 2016.

I don’t know how they manage to do this every month! The design of the beautybox is so adorable! It fits perfectly  with the theme of the month. This box features bright yellow, which has me envisioning the sun, sand on the beach and all things summer! Very creative and fun!

As always, a copy of ELLE UK is included in the box. (This magazine alone is already £4.10,-.)

Mr. Blanc, Minty Fresh Teeth Whitening Strips – Ohhh! I’ve heard the buzz about these teeth whitening strips! I already own the Crest whitening strips, but I just didn’t have  a good experience with them. I am curious if these will work for me. The instructions recommend using for a minimum of two weeks to see results. I am a coffee lover so I am unsure if only two weeks will provide me with a noticeably whiter smile. I am, however, encouraged because these strips don’t contain any harmful ingredients. So there’s no need to worry about damage to your gums or teeth!

Naobay, Oxygenating Cream Moisturizing – A moisturizer which provides extra-soothing, lasting hydration. This is a cream made for summer, and suitable  for sensitive skin. Composed of 98% natural ingredients like Rosehip, Avocado Oil and Sweet Almond Oil. These active ingredients are non-comedogenic, which means this is also a great option for those with acne. It will keep your skin clear, radiant and soft. An amazing product, from a well known and trusted brand!

Korres, Showergel Bergamot Pear – A shower gel infused with Vitamin B2 and Aloe Vera to condition and nourish the skin of the entire body! The fruity scent  makes me think of an amazing  island destination, a holiday free of  the daily grind, a truly relaxing experience! (Aloe Vera is well-known for its relieving, healing properties and can soothe sunburnt shoulders.)

Caudalie, Premier Cru The Eye Cream – This  Claudalie eye cream is infused with copper, silver and  iridescent illuminators. These ingredients combat dullness, while adding a healthy glow to the skin. It reduces the signs of dark and puffy under eyes, which many of us have experienced after a night of piña coladas! This eye cream has many benefits! Wave goodbye to the puffiness, fine lines, discoloration, and dehydration that threaten your  enjoyment of summer! This product is ready to go to work for you! I’m so glad that this eye cream arrived with the box!

Dead Sea Spa Magik, Beauty Balm – Would you like the light, reassuring coverage of a BB cream combined with that “day at the beach” feeling? This BB cream contains Dead Sea Minerals and Vitamin E, ensuring hydration  while complimenting your complexion, resulting in a radiant, natural finish. It can be used for almost every skin tone, as it adapts to your skin upon application!

Cowshed, Moisturising Hand Creme – Cowshed is an amazing brand, so I was excited to see this product in my beautybox! This hand creme is made out of chamomile, grapefruit and cinnamon. These ingredients are known to be anti inflammatory, and can reduce any swelling you may have, from volleyball to late night typing! It  doesn’t have any parabens, making it great for all skin types, even sensitive. This would be a wonderful way to treat yourself, at the end of a long day.  You could apply after showering all that sand (or work-related stress!) off, and wake up in the morning, ready for the day.

Tan Organic, Self Tan Oil – Get the right glow before you slip into that dress or skirt! With this self-tanning oil you can achieve your own, best-bronzed look in no time! The oil-based formula keeps you moisturized and flake-free, while giving your skin a healthy, sun-damage free, natural tan! It is also formulated to not streak or transfer! No smudges of self-tanner to be seen! Don’t worry about sitting on that white sofa, Tan Organic has taken care of that issue!

 I’m very happy with this June’s  beautybox. I must say here that I’m honestly kind of disappointed that they included  yet another hand creme. If you  have been subscribed to these beautyboxes, I’m sure that you’ve also noticed the surplus amount of products for nails or hands. I know that I don’t need a new hand cream every month. It gets boring. I think that companies paying more attention to  the types of products included in the beautyboxes would be an improvement. More variety would create higher demand for this creative idea. Overall, I am happy with the items, especially the whitening strips!

Do you use tanning oil? Which one is your favorite?

Thanks a lot for reading x
