The Look Fantastic Beauty Box - Christmas Edition No1 ❤

The Look Fantastic Beauty Box
"i was super excited to see that there was a beautiful look fantastic beauty box in our cosmo goody bags"

Hello My Lovelies!
I hope you're all doing fantastically well? I must admit I'm starting to feel super excited for Christmas and it's really nice, as sometimes I can get a little worked up around this time of year. It seems like ages ago since I attended the Cosmo Blog Awards with Sophia, but honestly speaking it was one of the best experiences I have ever had! I'm the first to admit I'm pretty shy and sometimes will turn down fantastic opportunities, purely because I'm scared of the unknown. Anyhoo! I'm here today with my thoughts on the Look Fantastic Christmas Beauty Box, which was very kindly put in our Cosmo goody bags! The past two months I've been lucky to try a few beauty boxes out, but previous to that I had never actually tried one believe it or not! I've had a little peek inside the box and have tried a few bits out, so I thought it would be a good chance to do an initial thoughts kinda post on the blog! I hope you enjoy and I would love to hear from you in the comments section below. Don't forget to use my social media icons if you would like to get in contact a little quicker!
The Look Fantastic Beauty Box
The Elemis Hydra-Balance Day Cream is an ultra-light, anti-oxidant rich day cream that provides continuous hydration, leaving skin perfectly hydrated, balanced and supple. I am actually coming to the end of this moisturiser, so as you can imagine I was super excited to see this in the Look Fantastic Box. It has a beautiful cream-gel texture and sits perfectly under my makeup on a daily basis. 

Unlike the Elemis moisturiser this Murad Exfoliating Cleanser was a brand new product to me. I must admit I am pretty picky with exfoliators and even though I do use them, I sometimes struggle to enjoy them! The Murad AHA/BHA Exfoliating Cleanser uses Salicylic, Lactic and Glycolic Acids to provide clarity and brightness, as well as improving cell-turnover. The cleanser also uses Jojoba Beads to gently polish, exfoliate and hydrate the skin. Since receiving the box I have used this product a few times and it’s actually become my favourite product from the box itself! I was pleasantly surprised by how smooth and nonabrasive this exfoliator is!

I do love a good Balance Me product and find the general quality of their products amazing! I was super happy to see the Balance Me Radiance Face Mask, which uses skin-brightening Fruit Acid Complex, Ground Walnut and Purifying Kaolin Clay to draw out impurities and re balance the skin. I’ve only used this product once, so It’ too soon to properly comment, but I enjoyed its spa like scent and exfoliating texture!

Percy and Reed Volumising No Oil Oil
I must admit I was pretty excited to see this Percy and Reed product! I've heard so many amazing things about Percy and Reed and thought this would be a great way to see if their products were for me! Even though I don't have fine hair I do get oily at the roots, which can sometimes take away my volume at the roots. The Volumising No Oil Oil is describe as being a 'little lifesaver' containing violet extract and pro vitamin B5, which are both fantastic for adding volume, whilst nourishing and repairing the hair too! I've only tried this once, but I have to admit I was extremely impressed and will 100% be writing a review in the near future!

Monu Firming Moisturiser
The Monus Firming Moisturiser has a host of amazing ingredients including, Marine Collagen, Neroli, Lavender and Coconut oil just to name a few. I've used this two times and I have to admit I quite liked it, even though initially I wasn't sure how I would get along with it! I definitely want to try this out and try and work it into my skincare routine, as I think it may be more beneficial than I realise. Your skin actually starts ageing at around 19, so at 23 I'm definitely looking at products to help prolong the current condition of my skin!

NUXE Reve De Miel Hand and Nail Cream
I was excited to see a NUXE product in the box, as I adore their Reve De Miel Lip Blam. This Hand and Nail Cream is described as being a repairing, anti-ageing and nourishing Hand Cream. It's formula has been tested in extremely cold conditions in Canada with a result of 96% saying that the formula improved the overall condition of the hands.

Look Good Feel Better Eye Shading Brush
Look Good Feel Better are the only international cancer support charity providing support for people struggling with the visible side effects of cancer treatment. Each brush is precision cut and is hand-made using super soft taklon bristles, which make them allergy free. I don't tend to do much eye makeup, as I feel like it doesn't really suit me! However, I thought why not give it a whirl and I've actually really enjoyed using this the past week. It's definitely a lovely brush and picks up product really well - so a huge thumbs up from me and of course it's for a great cause too!
I was super grateful to receive The Look Fantastic Beauty Box, which I believe is called 'Christmas Box 1' - My favourite products are definitely the Murad Cleanser and the Percy and Reed No oil oil. Even the products which I wasn't 100% sure would be for me have turned out to be fantastic too, and I would definitely recommend checking out the latest Look Fantastic Box

I hope you've enjoyed this review and I would love to hear your thoughts on this box in the comments below. 

Lots of Love
