LookFantastic Beauty Box - February 2018

It's February! Finally! January dragged didn't it? Not that I'm complaining it gave me time to really get organised and get myself and my blog into a little routine. Something I look forward to at the beginning of the month is receiving the LookFantastic beauty box! This month looks especially pretty  and looks very much Valentine's inspired which I'm super happy about. I have fell in love with a bunch of new brands that I'd never heard of thanks to these beauty LF sub boxes, not to mention the epic advent calendars. This months box is full of all the radiant, hydrating products so I'm super excited about this one! Here are my thoughts on the February box...

Caudalie - Vinosource SOS Thirst Quenching Serum

This is a hydrating serum which diffuses water to restore moisture balance leaving your skin soft and supple. The extra grape water and hyaluronic acid added to the formula it will give your complexion a radiant and dewy look.

How to use: On clean skin, use it morning & night and then apply your moisturiser on top.

My thoughts: One brand that I have fell for thanks to these sub boxes is this brand called Caudalie I have received lots of different products from this brand in the sub boxes and there I haven't found one that I wouldn't repurchase - this included! It is super super hydrating which as you know I live for hydrating skincare products and this does not disappoint Caudalie products always smell amazing and my skin reacts so well with these products.

Filgora Meso-Mask

This mask is said to be a 'super star' product It claims to give your complexion radiance and luminosity, whilst also diminishing the appearance of wrinkles and help to prevent them. It will also relieve your face of any signs of fatigue and even out your skin tone. All of these in one little mask! - Amazing!

How to use: Apply a generous amount to your face, neck, décolleté and eye contour, leave for 15-30 minutes and remove using a damo cotton wool pad.

My thoughts: Firstly, this smells amazing. Honestly this smells incredible I've been using it in the bath while I relax and the scent just relaxes me, I love it. It is such a good hydrating mask and it really has made my skin so glowy, it gives my skin a good pick me up and I have loved using this, hopefully it'll prevent my wrinkles too!

Dr. Pawpaw Original Multipurpose Clear Balm

This multipurpose balm can be used for any need you have lips, your face if you have dry patches, elbows, feet, cuticles, sunburn, skin irritation, literally everywhere - you get the picture. Using 3 all-natural ingredients Pawpaw (Papaya), Aloe Vera & Olive Oil, making this balm a natural beauty must-have!

How to use: It's pretty self explanatory just apply it to the desired area. (LF also say that you can pop it on your cheek bones for a subtle highlight, or dab a tiny amount on your eyes for a glossy lid! - Amazing!)

Wow. Why I have never tried Dr Pawpaw before I will never know. I have used this mainly on my lips and it is honestly hands down the best lip balm I have used and I consider myself as a bit of a lip balm connoisseur to be honest. It soothes and it has actually treated my dry lips instead of oiling them up and disguising the issue it actually helped it after the first use. A definite repurchase will be needed when I run out of this beauty.

Bellapierre Shimmer roll in 'Champagne

This easy-application shimmer roll can be used as an eyeshadow or a highlighter, the Champagne shade will suit all skin types too which is a bonus.

How to use: You can use to help create a full look by applying all over the eyelid or use just in the middle of the eyelid to make any colour underneath 'pop'. It also doubles up as a highlighter if you blend it into the cheekbones.

My thoughts: I wasn't sure about this product at first, in all honesty I was so unsure on the packaging and I know you can't judge a product or anything for that matter for its appearance The packaging looks fine to be honest its just the lid feels a little cheap and because it's a roll on applicator it just reminds me of a 90's product that I'd get out of an old teen magazine. However, This product is amazing the pay off is incredible and the shade is beautiful, definitely a shade perfect for summer, I envision this with a gorgeous sun kissed bronze look I absolutely love using this all over the eyelid it makes my blue eyes pop! It is super easy to blend and looks gorgeous as a highlight too!

Trifle Cosmetics Sublime Lip Scrub in Sugar Pear

This is a crunchy but not too crunchy sugar scrub that will make your lips super smooth, It is formulated with Cacao Butter, Sweet Almond Oil & Pecan Seed Oil so it hydrates and nourishes your lips while taking away all the dead skin cells. It is also infused with toffee mixture and pear extract which feels like an extra little treat.

How to use: Scoop some product with your fingers and using circular motions scrub your lips until smooth. Wash it off with some water.

My thoughts: As you can imagine with all the ingredients inside this lip scrub it smells beyond amazing and sweet but not sickly, I love lip products and its a really good exfoliator and not drying at all and this paired with the Dr Pawpaw multipurpose balm is a match made in heaven, they honestly work together perfectly. I love this product!

Elemis Pro-Collagen Marine cream

A 'bestseller within the skincare world' This cream is perfect for all skin types and is designed to increase hydration and help improve appearance of dull skin and fine lines. Super hydrating yet not sticky, the lightweight formula makes it perfect to apply it as a primer. The powerful anti-ageing ingredients of the award-winning Pro-collagen Marine cream have been shown to reduce the depth of wrinkles, improve skin firmness and hydration in 2 weeks!

How to use: If you have a full skincare routine, then this cream is best applied after the serum or oil. The formula is concentrated and super light so just a pea sized amount is needed. Place onto your hands and warm together before applying and gently smooth over face, neck and décolleté every morning.

Again, I honestly am like a beagle! I smell every product without even realising what I'm doing but this smells beautiful too, it smells and feels super luxurious and expensive. It is super lightweight and you can also use it instead of a mist when your skins looking a little dull and just press it into the skin for an instant skin pick me up (LookFantastics handy tip!) It makes my skin look super radiant and I have loved using this on no makeup days. I can't wait to keep using this for another week to see the results and see if it lives up to its promise! 

I am overly impressed with this month's box I honestly would buy this box on its own if it was for sale because every single product is amazing I have been using all of these products in this box and I would genuinely repurchase most if not all of these. 100% my favourite LF sub box to date!
