I recieved an email from Lookfantastic a few weeks back to tell me that my subscription box would be slightly delayed in getting to me due to the Easter Bank Holiday. To my surprise, it actually arrived pretty quickly from what I was expecting! In the April 2018 Lookfantastic, we recieved 6 goodies and surprisingly, they are all pretty pricey samples. GLAMGLOW, Emma Hardie & NUXE in one box? I’ll take that, thank you!
April 2018 Lookfantastic Subscription Box
This mini fabulous mascara truly lives up to its “fully charged” title, adding instant lift, volume and definition to your lashes with just one swipe! Harnessing new generation magnetic technology within their unique formula through a Magnetic Polymer Matrix that binds each lash in a positive electric charge, it delivers a striking, dramatic lash effect – technical, but exciting!
How To Use: Place the brush wand at the base of lashes then hold for a few seconds to set. Wiggle the wand in a back and forth motion and repeat to build. Use the wand vertically to apply to the lower lash line.
BBTips: Wipe your brush with a tissue every week to remove excess mascara. Combine with your lash primer from our January Beauty Forward Edition to prep your lashes before applying this amazing mascara.
I think that every makeup wearer out there will constantly on the hunt for ‘the perfect mascara’. I’ve actually recently been using the lash primer that was mentioned in their BBTips and I’ve fallen in love with it. Hopefully these two will be the power duo I’m after!
This mask was created to help with problem skin and blemishes instantly with its blend of acids and oils to help unclog pore congestion and clear skin!
How To Use: If you have normal or combination skin, apply a think layer to clean skin. Leave on for 20 minutes and remove with water. If you have sensitive skin, use solely on the T-Zone.
BBTips: We like to use the Supermud mask as both a full faced mask and a spot treatment as often as needed. Place a pea sized amount on a blemish, leave on for 20 minutes and voila!
I wrote a review on the GLAMGLOW Sonic Blue Gravitymud Mask previously, and to cut a long story short, I hated it. Funnily enough, I also hated the Primark dupe of a GLAMGLOW mask. I’m still not sure if I’m brave enough to give this another go, but I am very happy that Lookfantastic included this for those who can’t justify spending £50+ on the full sized mask (like myself!).
Experience a rejuvenating balm with this luxurious daily cleanser that works to lift away makeup and impurities while revitalising dull skin. Leaving your face brighter and hydrated.
How To Use: Take a small amount and warm between your fingertips to melt the product. Apply to the face, neck and eye area and massage throughly into the skin. To remove, soak a cleansing cloth in warm water and gently sweep over the whole face and neck.
BBTips: This fabulous balm can also be used as an overnight facial treatment, or on spots and breakouts.
My mum used to use this religiously, so I have actually tried this out myself. Whilst again, I can’t justify the price tag, this cleansing balm is heavenly. It leaves my skin feeling super clean and moisturised and literally melts off every trace of makeup. I also love how you can use this on the eye area since most cleansers will tell you to keep this away from your eyes.
This comforting moisturiser melts effortlessly into skin, softening, soothing and protecting you for 48 hours with its dose of Vegatable Milks and Algae Extract. Your skin will be safeguarded against damaging pollution and is left feeling supple, fresh and plump in appearance.
How To Use: Apply liberally morning and/or evening to the face and neck.
BBTips: We love using this just before bed after cleansing to enjoy the freesia, orange blossom and woody aromas when drifting off to sleep.
I absolutely adore the NUXE Dry Body Oil, so I’m very happy with this. I’m currently using the moisturiser that was sent in last months Lookfantastic box, so I’m going to wait until I’ve finished that one up before diving head first into this one.
Dr Botanicals Vegan Bergamont & Poppy Seed Soap
A refreshing, cleansing and exfoliating bar for face, body and hands. The black poppy seeds will gently exfoliate your skin, removing dead skin cells, while shea butter and macadamia oil cleanse and hydrate your complexion. The fresh citrus scent that welcomes you as soon as you open this month’s box is divine and will instantly uplift your mood.
How To Use: Lather up in the bath or shower using your hands and rinse thoroughly.
BBTips: Whilst in the shower, turn off the flow of water and lather your body. Leave soap to lie on your skin for 3 minutes to fully hydrate before washing off.
I very nearly purchased this the other day, so I’m extremely happy I didn’t. This Bergamont and Poppy Seed soap smells incredible, and had me and my mum both sniffing it for a good 10 minutes straight.
I do like how you can use this on your face aswell, but it does bring back horrific memories of when I used to use Dove hand bar soap as a cleanser. Shudders.
Unveil younger-looking skin with these Glycolic Fix pads. 10 radiance-boosting pads, soaked in exfoliating Glycolic Acid designed to retexture and resurface skin whilst Witch Hazel helps to tone. This moisturising formula with Hyaluronic Acid and soothing Blue Daisy helps to reveal brighter and smoother looking skin.
How To Use: Wipe pad across face, neck and décolleté. Apply to cleansed skin once or twice daily. Avoid excessive sun exposure + contact with eye area.
BBTips: Be sure to apply an SPF moisturiser after use to keep your skin protected!
I received this in the Glamour Beauty Club and didn’t like them too much. I think it’s because the Pixi Glow Tonic will always be my numer one bae. Into the giveaway pile these go!
