Natasha Denona, Molton Brown, Tarte AND bareMinerals all in one box? Yes please! The July 2018 Look Incredible deluxe subscription box is worth £98 this month. Since I only pay £30 a month, I’m more than happy with the worth of the box.
July 2018 Look Incredible Deluxe Subscription Box
“The Face Glow Cream Shimmer is the basic product for highlighting and glaming up the cheekbnes, bridge of the nose and lips, for a healthy glowling red-carpet look. A cream shimmer in stick form, for a fresh and glowing look. It’s iridescent composition becomes homogenous with the natural texture of the skin, without cakyness occuring. This creaming texture glides on comfortably, with a buildable coverage. Paraben and allergen free. Suitable for all skin types.”
My first ever Natasha Denona product!
I’ve eyed up a few of her palettes in the past, but I could never bring myself to spend £120 on a coloured powder that you wipe off in a few hours time.
Whilst I’m not a fan of liquid/cream products, this is so breathtakingly beautiful. Annoyingly, I didn’t take a swatch photo of this (and I call myself a beauty blogger?!), but as soon as I opened it up, I pretty much covered my whole left arm in the buttery shimmer.
I’m trying really hard to finally sort my skin out once and for all (easier said than done), but I cannot wait for no foundation days and just this on my cheekbones.
“Press the pause button and get ready to unwind with this relaxing and intensively moisturising body lotion. It’s a treat for your skin. Created specifically to promote a sense of calm, this moisturiser body lotion soothes your skin – but also your sense.”
I have such a love hate relationship with body lotions.
I adore Molton Brown as a brand, and I think they honestly make incredible products.
Also, this specific one smells amazinggg.
I’m just not a huge fan of body lotions.
Don’t get me wrong, I love the feeling of moistured skin, I just never can find the time to do it. 21st century problem, right?
If I shave my legs, I have to wait at least 24 hours to put on any moisturiser, unless I want to look like I’ve rolled around in an ant’s nest. I don’t like the ‘sticky’ feeling some of them leave, and lastly, I’ve never found myself ever needing to apply one. I rarely ever get dry skin, and when I do, it tends to be on my face and feet.
Even though I’m not a huge fan, I don’t think I can bring myself to give this away yet. I’m going to keep hold of it and try to convince myself that maybe I do need to start finding time to apply a body lotion.
“Pamper and perfect your pout with this at-home lippie facial that exfoliates and treats dry, cracked lips and provides instant hydration, all in one easy-to-use pencil. The 2-in-1 lip scrun sloughs away dead surface cells, allowing moisturising ingredients to penetrate deeply thanks to micro-fine sugar granules suspended in a conditioning treatment balm. The raw sugar acts as a natural exfoliator, gently rolling over surface imperfections to polish and improve lip texture. The elixir balm helps moisture, firm and protect with a silky-smooth, lip-loving™ blend of shea butter and the proprietary Rainforest of the Sea™ antioxidant complex.”
I never saw the hype with buying expensive lip scrubs. Why would I pay a lot of money when I can make my own at home for pennies?
Recently, I’ve been using the Trifle Cosmetics Lip Scrub that I recieved in a past subscription box. I’ve really enjoyed using that, and it does make my lips super soft, but I would never repurchase it.
Like the Trifle Cosmetics one, I know I’ll definitely give this a go, but unless it gives me lips of an Instagram model, I doubt I’ll repurchase it.
“Get an angelic look with the tinted translucent of bareMinerals Pure Radiance All-Over Face Colour. It’s healthy, clean-looking sheen with a soft peach luster that brightens your features and restores your skin’s youthful vibrancy.

I’m not going to lie, this product confused the hell out of me when I first saw it.
What is it?
What do I do with it?
Is it a highlighter? Foundation? Face powder?!
After watching a quick video on the bareMinerals site, I learnt that it is in fact a highlighter.
It says it can be used to give a subtle glow, but I do prefer more of a blinding highlighter.
I’m going to give this a go with a wet brush, and see if it intensifies it, but I can’t see this replacing my current favourites.
