Whenever I get an email to tell me my Look Fantastic box has been shipped, I’m always so surprised at how it’s already been a month since my last box arrived. Luckily, it’s always a nice surprise. Especially when the October 2018 Look Fantastic box has some pretty fab products in…
What’s inside of the October 2018 Look Fantastic Beauty Subscription Box…
“Refresh and rejuvenate your skin while you sleep! This lavish treatment ensures you wake up brighter with an improved natural elasticity of your skin. Containing Marine Collagen and Polysaccharides, the complex revitalises your complexion whilst fine lines are smoothed out, firmness is restored and signs of ageing are prevented.
How to use: After cleansing and toning massage into face and neck every night using gentle upward movements.
BB Tips: As you sleep, your skin’s ability to absorb regeneration power is higher so always use night treatments!”
I know you’re never too young to start using anti-aging products, but I feel as if I’ve currently got bigger skin concerns going on at the moment. I’d much rather use a moisturiser that’s targeted towards acne prone skin.
Saying that, this does sound like a really hydrating night cream. It’s definitely not going to last until I actually need it, so I’m going to donate it to my mum.
“Did you know your neck ages faster than your face? Well this #1 selling cream by PRAI is going to be an absolute lifesaver. The weightless, fast absorbing formula improves crepey skin, double chins, droopy jowls and turkey necks with visible results in just 7 days! The ingredients of Mulberry, Saxifrage and Grapeseed extracts combine to brighten and diminish age spots and discolouration whilst Shea Butter hydrates!
How to use: Apply in gentle upward strokes from cleavage to chin AM and PM.
BB Tips: When applying, do not overly massage your neck as it can strain the skin!”
It was only the other day that I was actually thinking about how I need to start moisturising my neck. Like they said, the neck ages faster than your face, so I think it’s time I started.
I have a weird neck phobia, and HATE my neck/throat being touched, but I think it’s time I grew myself a vagina, and get over my fear.
“A global cult beauty staple, designed to leave lips soft and smooth with a high gloss finish. Originally created as a nipple balm for breastfeeding women, it’s become an essential amongst top celebrity make-up artists to create extra long-lasting lip gloss and priming before makeup. Use this either to relieve chapped lips or to intensely moisturise areas of dry skin like the cuticles!
How to use: Squeeze out the product onto your fingertips and use them to spread it out on your lips for glossy moisture.
BB Tips: Apply a small amount of the product to a small lip brush and use this to neaten and sharpen the edges of your eyebrows. If you’ve received the Elderberry Lip Tint, use this to lightly tint your lips for a natural stained look!”
I’ve been wanting to try the Original Dr. Lipp Nipple Balm for the longest time, so even though I am slightly annoyed I didn’t get that one, I do really like the sound of the Elderberry Lip Tint.
As much as I love wearing lipstick, I can’t always be bothered to have to re-apply multiple times a day, so this sounds perfect for me. I’m just hoping it really is a subtle and natural looking tint like it says!
Pixi Fresh Face Blush in Beach Rose
“This natural blush will add a healthy glow to your complexion with its warm toned colour. This cult brand focuses on creating pure and botanical infused formulas that gives skin a radiant and fresh appearance! Enhance your own natural beauty with this Fresh Face Blush.
BB Tips: Lightly dust this blush across the apples of your cheeks and across your nose for a glowing and sun-kissed appearance.”
I was really worried that this was going to be too dark for my pale skin. Usually, I tend to stick to more bright, baby pink shades. After swiping this onto the apples of my cheeks, I was over the moon that there was not a clown staring back at me in the mirror. Even my mum complimented how lovely it looked!
Weirdly enough, I can’t seem to find this blush on the Pixi website. However, I did come across a few people selling it on eBay, so I’m thinking that its unfortunately been disconnected.
“This incredible body lotion uses the power of Dead Sea water, rich in skin-friendly minerals such as magnesium, calcium, and potassium increase skin’s moisture level, providing all day comfort. Let the formula nourish your dry, itchy skin and provide refreshing hydration in a fast-absorbing formula that will not leave skin greasy or sticky.
How to use: Apply generously on clean skin after a bath or shower
BB Tips: Perfect to use when the weather is getting a little colder when your skin starts to get a little dry and flaky in the winter.”
I’ve finally stopped being lazy, and started to regularly apply body lotion. Yes, it may only be on my arms, but it’s a lot more than I was doing before!
I’m currently using one from Soap & Glory’s new range, but I’m going to pop this one in my bedside table for those nights where I forget to pop some on after getting undressed.
“Transform your skin with the Talika Bubble Mask Bio Detox, an innovative foaming charcoal mask that contains thousands of nourishing micro bubbles. On contact with skin, the formula effectively detoxes, hydrates and unclogs blocked pores to banish all impurities – revealing clear, bright and glowing skin!
How to use: Unfold the mask and lay it on a clean, dry face. A fine, dense foam will form. After 10 minutes, take off the mask, massage the foam on your face and rinse.
BB Tips: We’d recommend doing a face mask 2 – 3 times a week and always moisturise afterwards!”
I love face masks, and I especially love bubble face masks.
I’ve only ever tried one bubble sheet mask in the past, and I absolutely loved it, so I can’t wait to try this one out. It is quite expensive for a single sheet mask, but I’m just hoping it’s worth the coin.
