Oh summer, where are thou? It seems it’s arrived with the new July Lookfantastic beauty box and this one is called #LFSummerLovin. The box oozes tropical vibes and the products inside are no different. So what’s in the box? Let’s take a look!
This box is full of summer beauty products and there are a lot of good things in it if you are going away for a holiday and need to bring a few minis with you. First up (and my favourite item in the box) is the NEW Benefit Goof Proof Eyebrow Pencil. This is brand spankin’ new from the latest brown launch from Benefit and is an angled eyebrow pencil (think Push Up Liner but for the brows). Because of the angled tip it does actually make it goof-proof and very easy to draw in and fill your eyebrows. Love this product!
A handy product to have in the box is a Lip and Cheek Stain from Bellapierre. This is a multi-tasking product with a nice light pink colour (can also build this up depending on your skin tone). I have actually encountered this brand several times through beauty boxes and their products are quite good. This one is nice because it kills two birds with one stone!
My next favourite item in the box is from This Works – this is a brilliant product called ‘In Transit Camera Close-Up‘. This is a perfect product to take on the plane with you because it is a mask, moisturiser and a primer all in one and is designed to plump and brighten your skin. Victoria Beckham herself is rumoured to be a big fan and if Vicky likes it, then we’ll have one too thanks. I’ve used this before on long haul flights and it really helps to protect against fatigued and dehydrated skin.
The next product has cult status and is the Nuxe Huile Prodigieuse. This is a multi-purpose dry shimmer oil – great for summer. You can use it on your face, body, hair or nails. I love it for a body highlighter – dab a bit on the tops of your shoulders, on your shins and on your decolletage if you are wearing a light summer dress. The oil contains six precious plant oils (borage, St Johnswort, sweet almond, camellia, hazelnut, macadamia) and has a gorgeous sweet fragrance as well.
So now we covered the skincare needs so what about hair? Hair in the summer can be a tricky thing. It can get fuzzy in humidity and can be hard to keep sleek and straight. I’m really looking forward to trying the Kebelo Silk Anti-Frizz Cream Serum in this month’s #LFSummerLovin box. It’s a styling and smoothing cream all in one and has lots of goodness in it so think of it as a styling cream that is actually really good for your hair. It contains quinoa, amaranth and chamomile as well as argan and jojoba oil to nourish. I will be using this to give my hair a bit of style on in-between days of washing my hair.
And last but not least as we can certainly never get enough hair bobbles in our lives so Miti Bobbles have been included in the beauty box. I love hair bobbles in general – I use them all the the time and I find them particularly useful for when I can’t be bothered to blow dry my hair and go to sleep with wet hair (which you shouldn’t do!). I just pull up the wet hair and the bobbles don’t pull or tug at the wet strands – they are quite gentle.
This is a great box for mini summer essentials and a big win with the Benefit Goof Proof Eyebrow Pencil! Lookfantastic beauty boxes only cost £11.25 and comes with the latest copy of Elle Magazine so totally worth it!
