I always look forward to the monthly Lookfantastic beauty box because I am never sure what to expect and this can only be a good thing! The start of the new year is all about discovery and trying to discover what will make this year bigger, better and different than the year before. That is the very theme of the Lookfantastic January box – it’s all about new beauty discoveries. And I have to say there are a few brands in this box that I have seen but not tried. So here we go!
First up the Trifle Cosmetics Liquid Glow. Skin gets a bit dull in the winter months – must be the lack of sun and also the air is drier and exposed to the elements more (like wind and rain). I like to mix a bit of liquid highlighter in with my regular foundation or you can just dot a bit on your upper cheekbones for a bit of GLOW.
Next up is fluttery lashes with the Jelly Pong Pong Fairy Lashes Mascara. This is a curling mascara that will give a bit of extra oomph to lashes. Sometimes all you really need is a good mascara and a slick of lipstick to brighten up your whole face. I could easily get by with just foundation, a glossy lipstick, a brown pencil and mascara – four must-have items! The Jelly Pong Pong Fairy Lashes Mascara is free from any chemicals so is kind to your lashes.
I already have a tweezer but not a rose gold one! These Rose Gold Tweezers from The Vintage Cosmetic Company are so pretty. Tweezers are one of those necessities when it comes to beauty tools. You just need a good pair that will really grab those hairs and yank them out! These are pretty precise so allow you to target the hairs very carefully – there is no need to take out any extra!
And while we are talking about brows there is a handy little Brow Tamer from Pixi in this month’s beauty box from Lookfantastic and this keeps brows smooth and in place – no flyaways!
Winter has a big effect on my hair due to the drier air and heating inside. The hard water of London also doesn’t help! This Briogeo Don’t Despair, Repair! Deep Conditioning Mask is a little hero – I like to apply it in the evening before I am going to wash my hair the next morning so I can leave it on overnight. Using a hair mask makes the ends of my hair soft and keeps them from getting dry and brittle which over time helps to save on haircuts at the salon!
I am a big fan of the brand Nuxe so was excited to see that there is a Nuxe Lotion Toner in the box. This Nuxellence Eclat is a toner that is a bit more gentle to the skin than most toners as it is infused with rose petals and coconut to nourish skin and shrink pores without causing too much irritation.
