Now that we’re pretty much settled in our new home, I’ve had time to pay attention to Christmas shopping after ignoring it for what feels like forever. In the pile ready to wrap with the shiny glint of rose gold, the December lookfantastic #LFXMAS box untouched and calling my name. The lookfantastic beauty box subscription has been pretty good all year but they definitely finished on a high, let’s take a close look inside…
Mellow Cosmetics Madness Lipstick
How gorgeous is this colour? It’s the perfect festive red which luckily enough matches my Christmas party dress perfectly. It’s matte but moisturising as well as long lasting, ideal for all those kisses under the misteltoe. I love the packaging too, you had me at gold and cream.
Illamasqua Hydra Veil Primer
An absolute cult product, I was so excited to see this in the lookfantastic beauty box this month! It is an amazing primer that helps your make up stay put all day and all night, as well as nourishing your skin with a whole horde of vitamins. I had another mini from the HQ Beauty Bauble a few weeks ago and I adored it, I’ll definitely be investing in the full size version.
Philip Kingsley Elacticizer
Another favourite of mine, it’s like this box was curated for me. This is a pre shampoo treatment to add bounce, body and volume, something that my hair always needs. It leaves your hair soft and manageable, and because it’s so lightweight, it’s suitable for all hair types.
Skin Republic Caviar and CoQ10 Face Mask
Ooh, I do love a good sheet mask. This one is perfect for this time of year as it’s super hydrating thanks to the mixture of caviar, witch hazel and CoQ10. I’ll be giving this a whirl tonight!
Balance Me Pure Skin Face Wash
During the move I got rid of all of my bathroom products that were nearly finished, this included my face wash so it’s perfect timing to try out this Balance Me number. I swear by grapefruit oil and have used products with it in for around 15 years now so this is ideal to add to my skincare routine.
Bubble T Bath Bomb
Who can resist a good bath bomb? This is hibiscus and acai berry scented so will add a touch of the tropical to your winter bath time, it promises to leave you relaxed and soothed.
You can pick up your very own lookfantastic beauty box here for only £15, or from £11.25 a month if you subscribe, an absolute steal considering the amount of products you get. It also comes with a copy of the latest Elle magazine!
After the rather mad day I’ve had on social media (take a look here for just a snippet), I think it’s time for a relaxing bath with the Bubble T bath bomb, the Skin Republic face mask and a cold glass of Pinot Grigio!
