Happy Birthday Look Fantastic who have just celebrated their 1st birthday and to mark the occasion, an extra special beauty box has arrived at my door. However, unfortunately the box arrived later than usual to me this month so I haven’t really been able to give anything a good try and review for you properly here. But bear with if you will…
L-R (lower): Sebastian Penetraitt shampoo; Caudalie Vinosource Moisturising Sorbet; Bliss Fabulous Foaming Face wash (2-in-1 cleanser & exfoliator).
L-R (top): Caudalie Vinosource S.O.S Thirst Quenching Serum; Phytokeratine Extreme (hair mask); Sebastian Penetraitt Conditioner; Monu Skincare Tanworx (Tan maintainer/moisturiser).
However, despite being unable to review many of the products for you this month, some of them will definitely be coming away with me on Trek America (which I am leaving for this weekend, Eep!), particularly the Bliss Fabulous Foaming Face Wash as not only is it travel size, but apparently it’s a #1 global best seller!
Unfortunately I don’t use fake tan and when I first noticed the Monu Skincare Tanworx moisturiser I immediately assumed it would be another bottle to ship to my friend who does. That being said, on closer inspection, although this product has been designed to work with the Tanworx tanning range, I wonder if it’ll work with natural tans? If so, this again has timed its arrival perfectly in line with my holiday.
I have hair products coming out of my ears at the moment but in the last year or two I have really started paying attention to maintaining well nourished, protected hair. So while shampoos and conditioners don’t really float my boat when I get samples (as let’s be honest, unless its something I can get in the supermarket/on the high street, I am unlikely to purchase full size), I do enjoy trying out new oils and masks.
I currently already have a Caudalie serum on the go from a previous box and it’s a brand that is beginning to position itself well on my radar, so I am pleased to see two additional sample products to try.
I am still enjoying receiving these boxes each month but I would like to see more make up get included if I am honest. I loved seeing the Rimmel Wake Me Up mascara in last month’s box (here), but following its disappointing impression, I want something new to try. Although we ended on not the best terms, that was one of the things I used to love about the Love Me Beauty Boxes I subscribed to early last year.
Do any of you get these boxes or have tried any of the above products before? I’ll be sure to let you know if anything really stands out for me while I am away!
Until next time x
