Beauty | Look Fantastic Beauty Box - January 2018

I completely forgot about this box coming in January. I had the whole of December opening the LookFantastic advent calendar so it feel like Christmas again!
The first box theme is 'Beauty Forward'. January is all about starting a fresh, clean start to recharge and try some new beauty products for 2018

Balance Me Congested Skin Serum

This serum contains a natural anti-bacterial oil that clears congestion and eucalyptus which will calm any redness and inflammation. Its super lightweight, really good for combination skin and it makes your skin look flawless, getting rid of any imperfections while keeping your skin hydrated and glowing. 

How to use
  Apply morning/evening on clean skin as a first step of your skincare routine

My Thoughts
 It says apply on clean skin as a first step of your skincare routine, this confused me I thought it was a serum which I would personally leave till last and then start my makeup routine, so, I have been using it in the evening once I've taken my makeup off and cleansed my skin I pop it on after cleansing as a evening serum. I have recently had a cold and it actually felt as if it was unblocking my nose so I understand where the congested name comes from I didn't actually expect it to feel so fresh, it made my skin super soft and I actually enjoy using this product. It says you can also use it as a primer in the summer to keep your makeup mattified.

Monuspa Warming Ginger bath & body oil

An all natural and clean formulation with a mixture of ginger, lemongrass and orange, uplifting and the perfect zesty zing to make you feel refreshed in the mornings!

How to use
Apply after the shower on your body or add a couple of drops to your bath for a nice relaxing spa inspired bathtime

My thoughts
 I actually really like adding this to my bath for a nice relaxing spa feel, I've been pretty ill lately so I've been having plenty of relaxing baths with this to make me feel better which I love but using it after the bath or just on my dry skin really does leave it feeling super silky and where I have felt run down and pretty achey, rubbing this into my shoulders worked wonders! would definitely recommend whether its for a spa like treatment or achey muscles.

Espa Pink hair & scalp mud

A super intense hair treatment. It's a gorgeous rose paste which is full of healthy minerals and vitamin C it conditions and nourishes the hair and scalp.

How to use
Apply onto damp hair and scalp leave for twenty minutes, rinse well and condition as normal.

My Thoughts
Right, I'm guessing it means apply onto damp shampooed hair? that's what I've been doing anyway and its been okay, you can also leave it on over night if you wear a shower cap or something to keep your pillows nice and clean! I actually have included this in my little pamper routine once I've washed my hair I put this on and put it up in a towel or shower cap, do my fake tan and I have to wait 6 hours to wash my fake tan off so I just wash the treatment off when my tan comes off and my hair feels amazing!

Korres White tea fluid gel cleanser

Pretty easy to explain this one, A gel cleanser and its main ingredient being white tea extract - obvs. White tea extract is a natural antioxidant protection and toner for the skin.

How to use
use morning and night, applying a pea size amount of product on damp skin rubbing in circular motions and rinse or you can use it as a make up remover.

My thoughts
I'm pretty particular when it comes to cleansers and I don't think I've ever used a gel one before but I actually really like this product! It smells gorgeous and feels lovely on my skin, doesn't dry it out at all - very impressed!

Erno Laszlo Toner - Marble essence lotion

In this box you had the chance to get 1 out of 3 toners by this brand. Perfect for all skin types, even sensitive skin. I got the white marble essence lotion which is used for dark spots, dull and hyper pigmented skin it brightens up your skin tone whilst encouraging the repair and renewal of your cells.

How to use
After cleansing pour a small amount into the palm of your hands and gently pat it onto your skin.

My thoughts
This was the one more suites to my skin tone, so, I'm pretty lucky this one came in my box the other two had different uses one was for oily/acne skin more of an exfoliator and the other was for dry sensitive skin. At first the packaging seemed a little intimidating I don't know why but I genuinely didn't know what it was, I think it looks a little like acid or nail varnish remover it has the exact same feel as the lid my mum used to have on her old nail varnish remover bottle haha so when I opened it up it smelt a bit like perfume, really nice perfume to be honest, but once I read the little beauty magazine that comes with the box it explains everything that's inside so when I realised it was a toner I was actually pretty shocked however I do love this product it makes my skin feel really really soft and I love the smell of it Its beautiful. Considering I wasn't feeling this product at first I actually think I'd purchase this myself, I'll let you know once I've used it for longer!

Modelco 3D Lash Primer

Eyelash primer, its conditioning and volumizing and it keeps your mascara lasting all day, It will also maintain the curve in your lashes and make them nice and thick
How to use
Apply before your mascara, it comes out white but then you just cover it in normal mascara and your can't see any of the white it just leaves it looking thick and black.

My thoughts
Okay so if your similar age to me you might remember like 10 years ago every mascara seemed to have a lash primer? It's basically a white mascara that acts as a thickener so you put it on (and look like you have icicles as eyelashes!) and then you coat the heck out of your lashes to cover all the white, This actually isn't to bad, it definitely gave me that nostalgic feeling of being 13 again but this is a lot better than the kind I used to have years back. Its not too clumpy and it does make my eyelashes look nice and thick.

The first months Look Fantastic beauty box! I hope you liked the new layout of it with more info! Do you get any beauty sub boxes? Or any other sub boxes? I'm currently waiting for a Disney treasure box!
