It is time for another Lookfantastic beautybox unboxing for the month August! This month is all about #LFBESTOFBRITISH: the best British items and brands on the market! Lookfantastic created this box with items for your skin and hair, preparing yourself for travelling to Rio to support the British team. That is exactly how it described this box, I’m not making this up! Cute isn’t it? I won’t support the British team, because I will always support my own country, the Netherlands (even though I expected more from the athletes at these Olympics, especially from the swimmers) . Let’s start!
If you are not familiar with beautyboxes and the subscriptions that Lookfantastic offers, you can read my previous blogpost here where I explain how they all work. A beautybox is a monthly subscription which offers new goodies each month. The beautiful print on the box is different each month as well, depending on the monthly theme. Beautyboxes are a great way to get to know new brands and to be introduced to items you will never buy.
Firstly, let’s check out this gorgeous box! Lookfantastic never disappoints me when it comes to the design on its monthly boxes. I get a new piece of art every month. The fun thing about these boxes is that you can use them for storing your makeup or other stuff. So please recycle your beautyboxes!
Besides the box, Lookfantastic included a beautybox guide with product information about the items it included this month and more beauty news from Lookfantastic.
And as always, a copy of ELLE Magazine is included! This edition is soooo big! I think it has twice the amount of pages it usually has. There a lot of editorials in this ELLE, which are great for making collages or inspirational mood boards.
Bee Good, Vanilla & Honey Lip Balm – This lip balm is formulated with super nourishing British Beeswax and hydrating Borage Oil to condition dry and damaged lips. The scent that is emitted when you apply it is amazing! It smells like vanilla and honey and isn’t too much to handle at all. The balm feels buttery, but I don’t feel like it’s too thick. Great for prepping your lips or healing your damaged ones.
Balance Me, Congested Skin Serum – An instant ‘on the spot’ natural blemish control designed to soothe and reduce both spots and blocked pores, to bring the skin back into balance. This item isn’t formulated with any harsh chemicals. A lifesaver when you have a blemish just before a big day. Your skin tends to react to the environment faster in the summer, so you will definitely need this! And it smells amazing, like fresh leafs/mint.
Renu Skin, Advanced Anti-Aging Lip & Eye Active Lift – The editors of Lookfantastic are loving this item! That’s why they included it in this month’s beautybox. You can never start using anti-aging products too soon, especially when it comes to the eyes. The formulation is free of fragrance and parabens, making it super gentle for you skin! The skin around your lips and eyes is thinner than the skin on any other part of your body. That’s why it needs the best products. Massage the product into your upper brow and cheekbones for the best results on your eyes. As always, I appreciate it when Lookfantastic includes an eye cream in its box because you can never have too many eye creams, especially because they are quite expensive! This sample contains 7ml, which is good.
Ren, Flash Defence Anti-Pollution Mist – First of all, I love REN! You can’t go wrong with a REN item in your Lookfantastic beautybox! This skin mist is formulated with Zinc and Manganese Amino Acids to protect the skin from oxidative stress caused by the harsh environment of cities. This mist should create a barrier to combat fatigue, breakouts and toxins. A great item to bring on your holiday or on the go. Just spray it on your face when you need a little TLC!
Percy & Reed, Perfectly Perfecting Wonder Balm – A Wonder Balm, can you believe it? I’m a bit sceptical. This balm is a primer and protector for your hair. You can use this before using a heating tool or as a perfecting balm for getting rid of fly-aways and maximising your hair definition. It makes your hair stronger, shiny and protects it from the heat. I’m a bit disappointed about the scent, it is not what I expected from a Wonder Balm for you hair. It’s smells like boring soap in hotels.
Bloom And Blossom, Rejuvenating Facial Spritz – Whooo, another face mist! Great to wet your beauty sponge with when you are too lazy to walk to the sink. This mist is infused with a lot of natural ingredients like Horsetail Leaf and Gotu Cola Leaf extract. It helps to reduce fine lines, wrinkles and dark circles. It also transforms your skin from dull and fatigued to radiant and bright! And it has a great fresh smell!
As always, Lookfantastic created a pretty and useful box. I love it when beautyboxes include an eye cream because they are the most expensive products. Fortunately, the box didn’t contain a hand cream! In my previous unboxing post, I told you that two thirds of the previous boxes included a full-size hand cream which couldn’t be finished in a short amount of time. Lookfantastic listened (to me?) and put other products in its boxes. I’m a bit disappointed that there is no full-sized product in this box except for the 10ml Bee Good Lip Balm. But hey, I can’t complain, because the other items are great. I also discovered new brands and got the chance to try items that I would never purchase on their own. The Bloom and Blossom face mist is my favorite product out of the items in this box!
