Last week I received the October Lookfantastic Beauty Box. I know it’s been a long time since the box was sent out (usually the box ships the 1st or the 2nd day every month) but I live in Greece and it takes up to 15-20 days to get this box in my hands. (This is going to change though since the Greek LookFantastic website is now live and all the products will need half of the time to be delivered in Greece. 👍)
As Autumn is now a reality, this month’s Lookfantastic Beauty Box came just on time. The ”INDULGE ME” box contains everything we need to pamper ourselves plus two more makeup products. The box is beautiful also on the outside, in light pink color with rose gold accents on the cover. This month’s quote says ”Nourish to flourish” and it suits perfectly to the ”indulge me” theme.
The box contains 6 products, (from Ciate London, ModelCo, Monu Skincare, Lancer, Bean Body and Skimono) two full sizes and four travel size products and additionally as every month, inside the box, there is a travel size of the Elle magazine. A small beauty magazine is also inside and contains detailed information for the products, beauty secrets and other beauty advice and suggestions! Let’s review the products:
The first product is something I have never tried before, a hand beauty mask from Skimono. This mask is like gloves, contains Shea Butter, Aloe Vera, Hyaluronic Acid and other nutrients and vitamins, and aims to provide a solution to hardworking and damaged hands. The mask really does what it promises to do. After 30 minutes of use, my hands were incredibly soft, renewed and bright, while the results were visible for the next 2-3 days. I have already checked the rest of Skimono products and I am going surely to try a face mask and the foot mask as well.
Lancer is a brand I have never tried also. Dr. Lancer, who works with celebrities, such as Victoria Beckham and Kim Kardashian, launched The Lancer Method, a three-step skincare system which encourages cell renewal, cleanses gently and provides intense hydration. This is the first step, an anti-aging exfoliator, a gentle and soft white gel scrub. I have used it only once and I have to say that works: exfoliate the skin’s surface leaving it cleaner, softer and brighter. I needed only a tiny amount for my face so I think it will last for at least 5-6 more uses.
MONU SKINCARE FIRMING FIJI MASSAGE OIL (travel size)
In a previous box, I have received the Rosewood Reviving mist and I was a little bit familiar with this brand. The firming facial oil is formulated to soft and comfort sensitive and dry skin. I have dry skin, sometimes can be sensitive as well, and I thought this oil would work for me. Truth is, I haven’t noticed any difference in my skin’s texture and I haven’t felt my face softer or brighter or whatever I should have felt after using it for 3-4 times until now. I think I will pass this one to my mother, she likes oils in general and maybe her skin can get better results.
Coffee body scrubs are very popular lately. I love a good body scrub, infused with natural oils or other treatment elements but unfortunately, this one smells coffee and coconut and I dislike the smell of coconut! Anyway, this gentle body scrub stimulates blood flow to minimize the appearance of cellulite and stretch marks, whilst Organic Cacao and Vitamin E provide antioxidant protection to repair and restore skin, leaving it softer, smoother and refined. Having tried the same scrub but the vanilla one, (which by the way smells incredible) I am sure whoever gonna use it, will feel its body skin pampered, very soft and hydrated.
This is one of the two makeup products in October’s Beauty Box. This an intensely volumising and lengthening mascara. It is supposed to create long and thick lashes thanks to its ”wonderwand” wand and the hourglass shape. My lashes are very thin and not too long also, so I was excited to try it as soon as my box arrived. Well, I like it in general, but it wasn’t super wow! My lashes were longer but not so thick as I was expecting. The color is bold and that’s good but the mascara has a strong smell which I don’t really like. I wasn’t exactly disappointed but not very satisfied either.
ModelCo INSTANT RADIANCE CONCEALER
This is the last product in the box and it’s a Lookfantastic exclusive! You won’t find this concealer anywhere else! It is a product that illuminates as it conceals. The formula is creamy and soft and smells like a baby powder. The ModelCo concealer smoothes fine lines, lightens up the under eyes area leaving skin brighter and radiant but with a natural finish. It’s long-wearing and performs very well on my dry skin. I have set it with a light setting powder and the result was very satisfying.
Well, there you have it, the 6 products in the latest October Lookfantastic Beauty Box. I really liked this box as most of the products matched my expectations and three of them, the Skimono Hand Mask, the Lancer Method Polish scrub and the ModelCo concealer became already favorites. The subscription box starts from £13.00/15.50€ This month’s box has a total value of over £68/75€. Every month, Lookfantastic offers a mix of skincare and makeup products, introducing you to brands that you might have never had the chance to try.
The October Lookfantastic Beauty Box has now sold out but November’s Beauty Box is available to pre-order and you can find it here.
