How is it December 1st already tomorrow?! The last month has flown by but that means its almost Christmas and...that the Lookfantastic December beauty box £15* is on sale tomorrow (1st December) from 9am yippee! The box has already sold out on pre-order so it's best to get in quick if you want to be the proud owner of this one. I received the November one and was blown over by the amazing brands that it contained and this box is no different. The box is jam packed with premium brands, as if that isn't enough to tempt you into purchasing one they also ship worldwide for free! There really is no catch with this box, for only £15 you get a box full of goodies worth a considerable amount more, it gives us a chance to try amazing brands that we might not necessarily be able to purchase otherwise.
Opening it is always the most exciting part....
This months box contains an impressive 7 products!! The November Lookfantastic beauty box contained 6 and I thought that was amazing for the cost and again this box contains a great selection of products too ranging from skincare, makeup, hair care and even a product that works from the inside out, they've got it all covered again in this box!
Macadamia Infused comb I have been wanting to try an oil infused comb/brush for months now and my wish has finally been granted, thank you Lookfantastic! I stopped using combs since I discovered the tangle teezer as I always found they snagged my hair but I'm definitely going to be giving this a try. The comb is infused with macadamia oil with a specially formulated resin to nourish and detangle hair. It means that it should be able to kindly detangle hair whilst infusing it with oil, I apply oil to my hair after every wash anyway but it always means your hands are left with a residue on and its often hard to distribute it properly leaving your hair often looking oily, so these are definitely the benefits of using a comb like this as it enables even distribution of the healing oil treatment. I have also tried a few other products from this brand which I have loved so I am expecting great things with this comb.
Lord & Berry Travel Size Silk Kajal Kohl Eyeliner Seriously have you ever seen a cuter eyeliner than this?! Lord & Berry is a makeup brand I've not previously tried and this eyeliner has really excited me! Lord & Berry only use the highest quality raw materials and finest hypoallergenic ingredients in their products. This mini eyeliner is the perfect size to pop in your bag for a night out for a top up or for a night away somewhere, definitely the makeup staple for all girls!
Bourjois Intense Smoky I am a massive fan of Bourjois products, they are definitely one of my favourite drug store brands. This little trio of colours is just beautiful and as always perfectly packaged. It contains 2 eye shadows and a liner, including a mini brush to apply it with. I love deep purples for winter, especially with Christmas parties and New Years coming up. Again this is perfect for taking away in a bag for a weekend. I've seen that they sell these in another couple of colours, the trios are great for creating smoky eyes as they provide the perfect colours for blending.
Pure Gold Collagen 50ml This was definitely the most intriguing product for me in the box. This little golden bottle is a liquid food supplement that improves the skins appearance from the inside out. The special blends of hydrolysed collagen,viatmins and minerals is said to reactivate the formation of collagen to give you brighter,plumper and more youthful skin. It's a damn sight cheaper than botox too! It's intended that you drink a bottle a day of this for 4 weeks to witness visible results, a box of 10 costs £35.99 and is meant to be 20 times more powerful than a collagen pill. I'm only 22 so I don't think I will be needing this just yet (I say..) but I can definitely see the massive advantages of this product.
Elemis Papaya Enzyme Peel 15ml Elemis is such a well known and reputable brand and anything face mask related is a winner in my eyes. This product contains papaya and pineapple (yum!) which contains nourishing milk protein, anti-oxidant rich vitamin E and Marine algae to moisturise, repair and protect the skin. It sounds like it will really help to achieve a more radiant look within minutes and in the winter especially as my face really needs with some brightening up.
Murad Essential-C Cleanser 45ml I'm always looking at trying new cleansers for my skin and haven't previously tried a product from Murad. It contains Vitamins A,C and E as well as various other vital ingredients which should add moisture back into the skin and rejuvenate your skin whilst promoting a healthy and beautiful complexion. The product smells so fruity too!
Ole Henriksen Pure Truth Youth Activating Oil 15ml This is an anti ageing treatment which again has a lovely fruity and citrussy scent to it. You can spritz this to your face and neck and the treatment is meant to penetrate into the deeper layers of your skin to help heal, nourish and hydrate your skin. It claims that this should help reduce visible lines and that skin immediately appears brighter and more radiant. I'm not quite in need of anti ageing treatments just yet but necks are definitely one of the first places of visible ageing and moisturising that area even at a young age is vital and I'm really looking forward to testing this out as it smells delicious!
As if that wasn't enough they've also popped in a £10 off voucher for Coggles!
So what did you all think of the contents of the Lookfantastic December beauty box?! This box is literally a god send, I absolutely love discovering new brands each month like Murad, Ole Henriksen and Gold Collagen as well as trying out new products from brands that I absolutely love but can't always justify buying at full price. It allows me to give things a test before going ahead and purchasing the full size. At first glance my favourite products are the Bourjois trio set, the Macademia comb and the Lord & Berry eye liner just because of the cuteness! I'm not disappointed in any of the products though and Lookfantastic have yet again done another fantastic job in offering a gorgeous bundle of beauty products!
I think that this would make such a lovely Christmas present for a friend/sister/mum/grandma AND of course as a treat for yourself! What I also love about this box is that you don't need to commit to a subscription like you do with most beauty boxes, you can buy them when and as you please at a mere £15. The boxes go on sale on 1st December at 9am, if you want to make a purchase don't delay as these do sell like hotcakes! If you miss out on this months you can sign up to receive updates about the boxes here.
