I know, I know. My Lookfantastic unboxing posts are usually up within the first few weeks of the month, but this month it’s all been a bit of a palaver really.
I looked back at my previous boxes, and each of them were dispatched on the first of the month, meaning it would usually end up at my door step around the 5th. The 5th soon went past and I still hadn’t received an email to say that my box had even been dispatched yet. Around the 10th, I started to panic that my box had been cancelled for whatever reason, so I sent them an email asking where the hell it was. Long story short, Lookfantastic has had a massive influx of new subscribers, meaning that they sold out of the box and that was why mine had been delayed.
I don’t understand why older subscribers had to wait longer, whilst the new subscribers got their box first? Did anyone else have this problem this month?
Anyway, onto the very delayed unboxing…
January 2018 Lookfantastic Subscription Box
An intensive mineral-rich treatment mask that deeply conditions, to leave hair soft and smooth, and the scalp nourished. Vitamin C-rich Watercress and Red Clay soothe and nourish the scalp, while Apricot Kernel Oil conditions to help promote stronger, healthy looking, manageable hair.
Suitable for all hair types, especially dry or weak hair. Can also be used to soften and nourish dry skin on the body.
I’m quite interested to see what effect this has on my scalp psoriasis. Ever since we’ve hit the colder months and I seem to catch every cold going (if you’re even reading this now and have a cold, I’ll somehow end up catching it), my psoriasis has been going crazy. Let’s hope this can help calm it down!
ModelCo 3D Lash Primer
If you don’t have an eyelash primer in your makeup routine yet, then this will revoluionize your mascara application. In addition to conditioning and volumzing it allows your mascara to stay put all day! It will also maintain the curve, and even enhance by giving some more thickness to your lashes.
The only makeup related product in the months box. I look forward to the makeup products more than any other products in subscription boxes, so whilst I am disappointed there is only one this month, I do really like using lash primers.
Enjoy a spa-inspired experience from home with the MONUspa Warming Ginger Body Oil; a luxurious formula that works to nourish, pamper and soften skin from top to toe. Infused with Jojoba Seed Oil, Calendula and Vitamins A and E, the lightweight oil transforms into a cleansing milk that melts onto the body to reveal smooth and supple skin. An invigorating blend of Ginger, Lemongrass and Orange Essential Oils awaken the mind and body, stimulating tired, aching muscles and leaving you feeling energised.
I get super bad nausea and since ginger is a natural anti-sickness, I’m really hoping that this has some affect on that! Soft skin and no nausea is all I ask for.
Specially formulated to reduce surface oil and eliminate dullness, Erno Laszlo Light Controlling Lotion is an exfoliating toner that will leave your skin looking radiant. Formulated with natural humectants which attract and bind moisture to your skin, the toner also has anti-inflammatory properties to relieve irritation and stimulate tissue repair, whilst antiseptic clove oil eliminates blemish-causing bacteria. Just a quick sweep is all you need to tighten your pores and prepare your skin for moisturising. – L.M.
Directions for Use: After cleansing, apply the toner to a cotton ball and sweep over your face, avoiding the eye area.
My mum currently is using a few products from Erno Laszlo, so I’m going to donate this one to her.
Balance Me Congested Skin Serum
A lightweight serum that will make your skin look flawless. Especially good on combination skin, it will get rid of all your imperfections and will keep your skin hydrated and glowy. Kanuka oil is a good natural antimicrobial and anti-bacterial that will clear congestions, while eucalyptus will calm any redness and inflammations.
Oh hello. This sounds right up my street. I’ve been breaking out ridiculous amounts at the moment, so hopefully this can help.

Another product that sounds really nice, but since I’ve got a whole bunch of other skincare products to use first, I’m going to pop this in my giveaway pile.
