Recently after becoming an obsessed LookFantastic fan, I decided that I just had to have both their annual Christmas advent calendar (Which if you follow me on both my Twitter and Instagram then you will know that I am unboxing this every day publically for my viewers, whilst also giving my opinion/mini-review on each product that is revealed) which as you can clearly see is very well-thought of and always beautifully designed around a theme of their choice, and of course their monthly subscription beauty boxes.
So this years choice of theme is – Beauty In Wonderland, which of course is originated from the iconic and nostalgic ‘Alice in Wonderland’.
Their beauty boxes offer the latest and greatest ‘must-haves’ which are beautifully boxed, wrapped and delivered straight to your door. These generally consist of cosmetics, haircare, skincare, and body care and are always a lovely element of surprise to receive every month, as I find that not only is it a great way to discover new products and brands out there, but it’s also a great opportunity to re-discover and fall in love even more with your old-school favourites.
As well as these gorgeous products arriving every month, every box also includes the latest copy of the ELLE magazine – So you’ll never fall behind and always be in the know for the latest beauty gossip!
So what did we get in this month’s beauty box you ask? Well, let me reveal all in this post. (WARNING: WILL CONTAIN SPOILERS!)
So, for the month of Christmas, Lookfantastic gave to me, an exclusive Blueberry Tea Bath Bomb Fizzer relating to the Beauty in Wonderland theme. (Hmm.. Doesn’t quite have the same ring to it, does it?)
All joking aside, this bath bomb will make an amazing addition to your bath time routine, as not only will it provide a delightful ‘unwinding experience’ but it will also deliver nourishment and overall hydration to the skin. It’s in the unique flavour of ‘Blueberry Tea’ which sounds very intriguing – But smells incredible! A definite must for those stressful days.
Secondly, in my little blue box, I received an MDMFLOW Matte Lipstick in the shade ‘Bossy’ (RRP £15) – Which was an incredibly generous surprise, as not only is it a gorgeous mauve, dark, nudey-brown shade, which also upon swatching/testing I have found the formula to be perfect. It’s a semi-matte texture which dries down pigmented and opaque but also feels incredibly moisturizing and buttery on the lips. Highly recommended for any day/night look!
Moving on to Skincare, we have the Polaar Genuine Lapland Cream (25ml) – This Hand Cream is infused with the extract of 3 Arctic Berries. Raspberries, cranberries, and marshes, all which are very rich in Vitamins A, C, and E and retain protecting, pampering and anti-radical properties. These benefits will help combat the conditions your hands are being exposed to daily – Such as wind, weather, change in temperatures, and pollution. Which all contribute to damaging the skin, causing it to dry and crack. However, This cream works as a hydrating and nourishing agent, soothing and ultimately restoring any damage.
One of the most important steps in my skincare routines has to be gentle exfoliation. Why? Because it’s the absolute key to having genuine healthier, even and clear skin. That’s why I’m so grateful to receive a sample of the Suki Exfoliate Foaming Cleanser in this month’s beauty box. As this product removes unwanted dead skin, toxic build-up, and dirt in order to renew and smooth out the skin for an overall, flawless complexion.
Who likes the signs of aging? Not me. And I’m sure I won’t be alone saying that, but not to worry as I also received the Gatineau Melatogenine AOX Probiotics which is famously known to target deep wrinkles and fine lines, helping to restore them to a healthy, youthful glow. The probiotics combine both antioxidants and probiotics for a brightening and radiant complexion. Whilst Melatogenine helps prolong a youthful appearance. Sounds like a gentle, little non-surgical botox in a tube to me!
With moisture being very important to achieving visibly healthy skin, I was so happy to also receive the Figs & Rouge Hydra-Activ Smart Nutrient Vital Moisture Day Cream. Which claims to provide ultimate, long-lasting hydration, to help leave skin smooth and radiant. Moisturising ‘Smart Nutrient’ technology means this product is not only nourishing and hyaluronic acid-based but is also fortified with skin-boosting benefits such as vitamin A, C & E.
This also works as a natural anti-inflammatory as it’s infused with chamomile extract.
Also protects against the signs of aging.
Overall, as a beauty box, I believe there is a very generous variation of products, suitable for anyone and any occasion.
I cannot wait to see what the new year brings and of course with it, a new monthly beauty box.
I would just like to take this opportunity to wish all my viewers a very Merry Christmas and the very best of wishes for the new year.
Have a fantastic one!
