I love a good beauty box. And one to talk about for April is the Lookfantastic #LFBLOOMS box. Now I know April has passed and I’m a bit behind but this box is all about beauty with a difference and it’s never too late to talk about that! The #LFBLOOMS box launched in April because April was Earth Month – so it makes perfect sense that all the brands featured in the box are either natural or organic.
First up we have Balance Me, one of my favourite British natural beauty brands. The product in the box is the Super Toning Body Polish which contains ground walnut spheres to help exfoliate away dead skin cells. And with summer and warmer weather around the corner, this is a great product to have to make sure your legs are shorts-ready! It smells amazing and you can feel content knowing it’s 99% natural.
Next up is Briogeo Deep Conditioning Mask. This is a brand I have not heard or tried before but as I am always interested in new beauty brands, this was a great discovery. This is a really nourishing hair mask that smells amazing and feels amazing too with Argan, Avocado, Rosehip and Sweet Almond Oil. I LOVE the smell of Sweet Almond Oil so that was the real kicker here with this product for me. It’s also a gel-to-oil formula which I had not ever seen before.
Rituals is a lovely brand that makes products that enhance your everyday beauty ritual – makes sense doesn’t it?! The products are natural formulas and based off Eastern ingredients such as the sakura flower or green tea from Japan. This one has a scent of Ginseng (from Korea) and also contains Gingko Biloba (that supplement that you take for energy) that symbolises strength and beauty in Japanese culture. This is a hand scrub but I think it’s great for any dry areas such as the elbows, knees or feet so use where you want to!
Another product I liked that appeared in the box is from a brand that I hadn’t heard of previously and this was Bloom & Blossom Bath and Shower Gel. This is 99% natural and free from sulphates, parabens and synthetic fragrances. This would be a great product to use if you are pregnant or a new mother who is nursing due to all the natural ingredients in the formulation.
And to mix things up I love the addition of the Aduna Baobab Superfruit Energy Bar. I’ve tried several things from Aduna including their Moringa Supergreen Powder which I really love. This energy bar saved me on the weekend when I was running around on an empty stomach. Pack an energy bar – you never know when you will need it!
