I know we’re now well into April, but I’m still playing catch up with myself following my wedding and the interruption that caused to scheduling of content on here, so bear with me. But that all being said, here’s what arrived in last month’s (March) Look Fantastic beauty box:
In the box L-R: Caudalie Micellar Cleansing Water; Revlon Colourburst Lip Balm; Emergen-C Energy Release & Immunity Support.
Outside the box L-R: First Aid Beauty Ultra Repair Cream; Codage Masque Hydratant Moisturising Mask; Lottie London Eyeshadow Brush; Nuxe Creme Prodigieuse (anti fatigue moisturising cream).
Caudalie Micellar Cleansing Water: It amazes me lately how micellar water can differ between brands, and not all for the good. This one from Caudalie however does the job perfectly adequately, breaking up and removing eye makeup gently and effectively.
Revlon Colourburst Lip Balm: Following my disappointment with the Bourjois Colour Boost Lip Crayon received in the Glamour Summer Edit Beauty Box last year, I was preparing myself for a similar experience with this version from Revlon. Fortunately, while it isn’t still quite up to the standard of the Rimmel Colour Rush Balms (review here) which to me are unbeatable, this particular product takes a respectable second place -it applies smoothly, has a light pigment and feels moisturising. Apparently this balm can also be applied onto cheeks too, so for that on to go touch up, particularly during the summer months, some will find this product ideal.
First Aid Beauty Ultra Repair Cream: I have wanted to try something from the First Aid Beauty range for ages so I was delighted to see this product in the box this month. However, unfortunately I am not in need currently of a repair cream so while I can confirm its a perfectly good cream, I can’t comment on its repairing capabilities. It does claim though that “after two weeks continuous use, clinically proven to deliver 169% improvement in skin hydration…” so definitely a product to keep to hand.
Lottie London Eyeshadow Brush: I have heard very mixed reviews about the Lottie London makeup brushes as I think people get carried away with their prettiness, and then find they don’t quite live up to expectation. For me, yes this brush is very pretty and is a welcome addition to my collection to add a pop of colour, and yes it’s a perfectly okay eyeshadow brush to apply product. At this stage, I can’t say more than that really but I guess if you’re new to beauty, particularly if you are or have teenagers, this would be a good entry level set. Personally though, the ones to beat are Real Techniques and I don’t think Lottie London are yet at that standard.
Nuxe Creme Prodigieuse (anti fatigue moisturising cream): This is a lightweight moisturiser designed to reduce redness and inflammation and is recommended to apply after cleansing in the mornings. That is what I have been doing and I have to say I really like this product, but it just reinforces how much I love Nuxe as a brand which is definitely one of the positives of subscribing to the Look Fantastic monthly beauty boxes.
From the box I am yet to try the, Codage Masque Hydratant Moisturising Mask, and the Emergen-C Energy Release & Immunity Support sachets which are like an orange flavoured fizzy drink -bit unsure about them to be honest but something to have in the cupboard in case I change my mind.
