Your Beauty Treats

Caudalie Premier Cru Eye Cream – Full Size £49.00

Look Fantastic Box Review - June 2016

This luxurious cream offers the ultimate in anti-ageing eye care, instantly transforming your eyes, plumping fine lines, erasing dark circles and helping puffiness fade away, leaving your delicate eye area looking brightened and feeling hydrated!  Perfect for the lip contour area too this luxe sized sample contains Caudalie’s three signature patents – Resveratrol to lift and firm, Viniferine to correct dark spots and brighten and anti-oxidant rich grape-seed Polyphenols – to not only prevent the first signs of ageing, but correct them too!  I have received several Caudalie products in some of my recent beauty boxes, and it is a brand I am becoming a lot more familiar with and the more I see the more I fall in love with it!  This light but potent eye potion is the perfect pick me up for tired eyes, and melts instantly into the delicate skin around the eye area, firming and tightening the skin and brightening dark circles.  Although it’s an expensive addition to any beauty routine, a little goes a long way and it’s triple-action, targeted treatment is well worth the hefty price tag in my eyes!

NAOBAY Oxygenating Cream Moisturiser – Full Size £32.95

Look Fantastic Box Review - June 2016

Protect and regenerate your complexion with this Oxygenating Cream Moisturiser from upcoming beauty brand NAOBAY (Natural And Organic Beauty And You).  Suitable for all skin types, its blend of Rosehip and Sweet Almond Oils reinforce the skin’s hydrolipidic film, whilst providing optimum hydration to leave your complexion soft, smooth and supple.  It’s fast-absorbing and ultra-lightweight formula is breathable making this cream the perfect base to create a flawless, long-lasting make-up look that will last even in the Summer heat!  NAOBAY are a really ethical company so taking care of the environment is just as important to them as creating natural, cruelty-free skin care and hair care products, and after trying a few of their products in another beauty box brand, I was excited to see that they are now becoming a more well known and mainstream brand, showing up in other places too!  I have loved all the NAOBAY products I have tried so far and this Oxygenating Cream is no exception!  I have just run out of my regular moisturiser so finding this light-weight moisturiser was perfect timing for me and I will be using it as my main daily moisturiser going forward and with such a large travel size, it should keep me going for some time!

Korres Bergamot Pear Shower Gel – Full Size £8.00

Look Fantastic Box Review - June 2016

Rich in vitamin B2 to help improve skins metabolism and aid the absorption of nutrients, and vitamin B5 to boost skins cell regeneration, keeping your skin looking youthful and radiant, this nourishing, naturally inspired shower gel also contains antioxidant aloe vera to soothe and soften your skin from head to toe, making it your perfect shower mate, invigorating both your skin and your senses while gently cleansing and refreshing your skin!  Ideal for everyday use, it’s formulated with wheat proteins which produce a protective film over the skin, maintaining levels of hydration to ensure that your skin doesn’t dry out, while its rich lather leaves your skin smelling delicious and adds a little bit of luxury to your daily beauty routine!  Greek beauty brand Korres create some amazing natural beauty products and I have tried several of their body lotions and hand creams, and work really well on my sensitive, eczema-prone skin.  This refreshing shower gel was a real treat to use, and it smelt amazing!  I already have the matching body cream too, so it fits in really well with my current skin care regime and is a great little summertime shower product as it leaves skin feeling cool and refreshed after a warm, sunny day!

TanOrganic Tanning Oil – Full Size £24.99

Look Fantastic Box Review - June 2016

TanOrganic’s Self-tanning Oil is the world’s first oil-based self-tanning product, making this sensational multi award-winning oil not only an intensely moisturising dry oil, it also has the added benefit of a giving you a sumptuous subtle  all-over tan too.  It instantly illuminates the skin with an irresistible glow that will leave people thinking you have just come back from two weeks in the sun and its the perfect choice for people who prefer a sun-kissed look with out the harmful side effects of UV tanning.  Made with a unique blend of eight different plant oils including Borage seed oil, Argan oil and Orange peel oil, TanOrganic’s Self-Tanning Oil has a subtle citrus fragrance with a hint of rose, and its light formula glides easily on to your skin meaning there is no need for a tanning glove or mitt, and this all natural tanning product also instantly hydrates the skin with its innovative combination of Aloe Vera and natural plant oils, offering amazing antioxidant protection along with a subtle, sun-kissed glow!  This is my first experience of TanOrganic, and as a real tan-lover I was really excited to see whether this award-winning tanning oil lived up to its reputation!  I loved just how simple this self-tan is to use, it literally goes on like any other body oil and there’s no need to worry about over-tanned hands as all you need is a baby wipe and you’re good to go! After a skin cancer scare last year I have been exploring the self-tanning route a lot more as I love looking tanned, but often find self-tan turns me more yellow and jaundice than healthy and sun-kissed, but this luxury oil built to a gorgeous golden glow that naturally faded with out going patchy, and left my skin feeling nourished, soft and supple too!  And with no nasty fake-tan smell it’s a big thumbs up all round!

Dead Sea Spa Magik Diamond Range BB Cream SPF15 – Full Size £13.50

Look Fantastic Box Review - June 2016

Combining Dead Sea minerals, pure plant extracts and antioxidant Vitamin E, this skin-perfecting beauty balm is quick and easy to apply, and blends effortlessly for natural-looking coverage that adapts to suit individual tones, making it an ideal travel companion as while you’re working on your tan you won’t need to worry about your foundation washing out your newly tanned skin!  As well as providing natural, light-weight coverage to help combat uneven skin-tones and conceal imperfections, it also helps stimulate collagen production which minimises the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles and protects your skin with a multi-spectrum SPF 15 too, leaving your complexion smooth, radiant and deeply moisturised as well as protected and perfected.  I’ve used some of Dead Sea Spa Magik’s mud-based products in the past, but I have never tried their make-up, so knowing how amazing Dead Sea Minerals are for the skin, I am intrigued to see how they’ve combined their benefits into a BB Cream!  I was a little dubious about the ‘one-shade-suits-all’ approach, but it did work well with my paler than usual skin, and although a little thicker than some BB Creams I have used in the past, it did give a light, natural looking coverage which is just what you want during the summer.  Although it’s not the best BB Cream I have tried, I can see the appeal of a product that suits your changing skin colour over the summer months, and while you’re away on holiday, so I will be continuing to test this product over the next few months to see if it really is the holiday hero it claims to be!

Cowshed Cow Pat Moisturising Hand Cream – Full Size £8.00

Look Fantastic Box Review - June 2016

Cowshed’s Cow Pat Moisturising Hand Cream is a must-have product for hard-working hands as it not only replenishes much-needed moisture to dry, sensitive hands, but it is also refreshingly scented with a blend of chamomile and Calendula and pure essential oils of lavender, grapefruit and cinnamon and is quickly absorbed, adding an instant moisture hit when you need it most!  It’s natural, cruelty-free formula is also paraben and sulphate free, as well as being suitable for vegetarians too!  I adore hand creams!  I use them all the time, and always have more than one on the go at any one time and the better they smell, the more I love them and this handy little handbag sized treat is the perfect holiday hero, so is the perfect fit for this months Look Fantastic Beauty Box!  I have used a few Cowshed products in the past, but this is the first hand cream I have used, and I honestly couldn’t fault it!  From the smell, to the light but nourishing formula – everything about this hand cream is perfect for me and I will definitely be purchasing this again and adding it to my ‘must-have’ product list!

Bonus Treats

Mr Blanc Teeth Whitening Strips – Full Size £24.99

Look Fantastic Box Review - June 2016

Mr Blanc is a teeth whitening wonder treatment that has been taking the internet by storm over the last few months with celebrities showing off their whiter smiles all over social media, and happy customers raving about their new gnashers at every opportunity, and now, thanks to Look Fantastic’s #LFJetsetter Edition Beauty Box!  These Minty Fresh Teeth Whitening Strips are clinically proven to enhance your smile, with 85% of people achieving whiter teeth in just two weeks and with a simple, fuss-free application process, these easy-to-use strips cut out the need for messy trays, UV lamps and harsh chemicals as this must-try formula is free from peroxides and enamel safe, giving you a cleaner, whiter smile without the risk of damaging teeth!  These Professional Teeth Whitening Strips also help prevent the generation of future stains and only need to be applied to the teeth for up to 30 minutes in order for the gel-infused teeth whitening strips to work their magic, and their handy single use foil packaging makes them the perfect product to ensure you keep your teeth hollywood white even when you’re off on your travels!  This simple, pain-free treatment doesn’t leave any lasting sensitivity either, making it the ultimate smile enhancer!  I suffer with sensitive teeth so have always avoided tooth whitening treatments in the past, and although I have tried oil pulling, I didn’t find it very effect, but these handy strips were easy to use, and were much more palatable than even the mintiest coconut oil treatments, and although I only got three strips, and you need to do at least two weeks to see real results, they didn’t irritate my gums, or flare up my sensitivity so I may well look into a full course of these strips to help polish up my pearly whites in time for summer!

July’s Edition of Elle Magazine – Full Size Copy £4.10

Look Fantastic Box Review - June 2016

Look Fantastic have been giving you a complimentary copy of Elle Magazine for the past few months and it is always a welcome addition to their beauty boxes.  Not only does it make them even better value for money, giving you a magazine subscription along with your beauty box subscription, but it also helps keep you up to date with all the latest fashion, beauty and make-up trends from across the globe.  Elle Magazine is one of the best-selling fashion magazines in the world, and with Look Fantastic it’s yours for free so you’ll never have to spend out to stay on top of the latest looks, hottest gossip and celebrity style ever again!  Perfect for the busy Jet Setter!

My Verdict

With such an impressive line-up of travel-sized beauty treats on offer in this months Look Fantastic #LFJetsetter Beauty Box, its hard to know where to start!  Every month I think Look Fantastic have put together their best box to date, only to be proved wrong the following month!  I love their monthly themes and June’s #LFJetsetter Edit is perfect for the longer days and warmer weather, with a long-wear, complexion enhancing BB Cream, some skin care saviours that are a must-have on any holiday, and luxury travel treats that will have you glowing no matter where you go this summer.  It is another skin care heavy box from Look Fantastic which I am never keen on as their sample sizes tend to be large enough to last you more than the month between each box arriving so you can sometimes get a bit of a skin care backlog with so many boxes like this, but the mix of body and face products is good, and their brand collaborations this month show off some of the best naturally active skin care products on the market at the moment including well-known brands like Caudalie and Cowshed, and brands that are new or up and coming like NAOBAY and Dead Sea Spa Magik.  With every product being carry-on compatible, Look Fantastic have also ensured that whether you’re jetting off for a City Break or a Long-Haul, you’ll be able to travel in style and look glamorous and glowing at all times!  I am familiar with all the brand in this box, but all the products are new to me, so it was fun to try them out and get to know more about these familiar brands and explore their ranges further.  I have found some firm new favourites in the NAOBAY Oxygenating Cream Moisturiser and TanOrganic Tanning Oil, and I loved exploring more of the Caudalie product range too!  This months #LFJetsetter Edit is also amazing value for money too at over £65.00 it’s the best value box so far this year!  I love the bonus treats too – the copy of Elle Magazine is always a welcome sight in my Look Fantastic Box, but the handy trial pack of Dr Blanc was also a great idea too!  I love how easy they are to use and that they didn’t cause any of the sensitivity issues that have always put me off tooth whitening treatments in the past.  So even though I was hoping for a little make-up in this months box as its been two months since we have seen any in a Look Fantastic Beauty Box, this box can’t be seen as a total disappointment as what it lacks in colour, it certainly makes up for in quality!  I am hoping to see some fabulous, colourful products in July’s box though, as we really need some powder and paint to balance out three months of solid skin and hair care and with a possible #LFSummerNights theme on the horizon I am sure they have more to share with us!

My Beauty Favourite

With such fab line up of luxury skin care in this months #LFJetsetter Edition Beauty Box, I thought I may have to settle for two beauty favourites this month – but out of the two amazing facial skin care products I fell in love with it was the Caudalie Premier Cru Eye Cream that had to come out on top!  It’s a high-end eye cream that melts effortlessly into your skin, lifting, firming and brightening the delicate eye area and as I suffer with dark circles and puffiness this cooling premier cream was a breathe of fresh air to my tired, hay fever plagued eyes and has added to my ever-growing Caudalie skin care collection!
