Another month, another Look Fantastic Beauty Box to reveal to you! As this box has been themed around Valentine’s Day, I did want to get this post up earlier than usual to coincide with the occasion, but my Postman wasn’t on the same kind of schedule, nor did he leave it where he usually does and instead took it back to the depot. Forgive me.
Overall -as you’ll soon read- this has been another excellent box to receive as there were a couple of lovely new products to try. However, my one complaint about the box, call it minor if you will, was that most of the products inside were terribly dirty, like they had been sat on a shelf for months and no one bothered to give them a quick wipe before packing. Like I said call it a minor complaint but anything else that was received in a similar way that money had been spent on, and you wouldn’t be impressed either.
So, without further ado, here are this month’s contents and my particular favourites:
Contents: MonuSpa relaxing Bali Massage & Body Oil; TIGI Bed Head; Hi Impact Brows Eyes & Brow Perfector Palette; Lord & Berry Matte Lipstick Pencil; Denman Mini Keyring Brush; Pink Grapefruit & Aloe by Bliss Body Butter.
Pink Grapefruit & Aloe by Bliss Body Butter: One of the best features about this product is the fact that it comes in a tube and not in a tub, which makes it not only far easier to transport around, but it also makes general use and application so much easier. I am not for one minute suggesting that I hate tubs of body butter as they most certainly serve their purpose in their own right, but a handy little tube is a welcome addition. A tub allows you to scoop out a decent amount of product which works fine when you’re wanting to cover large areas of your body, but when you just want to use the product lightly and maybe for a focussed area that needs some welcome moisturising (i.e. on your shins to cope with chapping in cold weather), a tube is brilliant.
The body butter itself is lovely and smells gently of grapefruit which I think in skincare is a well-suited scent. In the September box I received a face wash from Bliss which I actually really enjoyed using and finished the bottle in no time, the only thing that I don’t find hugely appealing is the appearance of the packaging; I just find the font, the colours and the imagery –particularly on this month’s product a bit teenage. But if I was a teenager, I would have no complaints so in the grand scale of things, my one negative isn’t really a negative at all.
I already use a Denman brush as the quality of the bristles is far, far better than other (cheaper) hairbrushes I have previously used. To be honest, there isn’t a lot to say about this mini version except that it’s mini and ideal to pop in your handbag when you need it. Can’t say more than that really.
LORD & BERRY Lipstick Pencil: This is a fantastic product and not only is it my favourite item from within this month’s box, it is also currently a favourite among my lipstick collection. As you guys well know, I love a matte lip as I like something that really absorbs and doesn’t budge, and this lipstick pencil from Lord & Berry does just that. What I love about the brand is that their products (for both eyes and lips) glide on easily, are well pigmented, and last extremely well. What you get with this pencil is the accuracy of a liner upon application, and the quality of a decent lipstick. The colour of this lipstick pencil is also beautiful -a very wearable everyday nudey pink. A very big thumbs up from me!
Hi Impact Brows Eyebrow Colour Palette: Another great product in this month’s Look Fantastic beauty box. Until this point I have just been using an old brown eye shadow to fill in my brows each day and here I now have a palette which has far better suitable shades for me to use. I haven’t tried using them as eyeshadows yet but for brows, the pigment is excellent, the quality is excellent and overall, I think this palette is truly excellent!
Have you guys got this box or tried any of the products featured? What do you think?
