LookFantastic Beauty Box - April 2018

Oh wow! this is a goooood box. As soon as I picked it up and removed the lid of the box I got the biggest whiff of some gorgeous mysterious scent, which I will get to later.
I'm always unsure whether I should stop posting these LookFantastic boxes incase they are too repeptitive but as soon as one gets delivered I have to tell you all about it! 

Right, let's start this months theme is Beauty Awakening giving your skin a wake up call, updating your beauty routine and introducing you to new brands that are sure to put a 'spring in your step'!
Celebrating natural ingredients this month with some holy grail brand favourites to help our skin blossom and leave our skin super radiant for the spring/summer.



Dr Botanicals Vegan Bergamot & Poppy Seed Soap

The first thing to come out of the box - mainly because the smell was incredible ... and rather strong of citrus goodness! 
I am such a huuuuge fan of Dr Botanicals and I would never have got the chance to use these products if it wasn't for this amazing box. This is their Vegan Bergamot & Poppy Seed Soap. I am a huge lover of the scent bergamot, I think it makes a gorgeous scent especially in cologne. The added poppy seeds work as an exfoliator removing dead and dry skin, while shea butter and macadamia oil cleanse and hydrate your skin. 
How to Use: Lather up in the bath or shower using your hands and rinse thouroughly.
My thoughts: I love this soap and usually it's one thing I never buy. My nan would always have soap in her bathroom but I never do everything is liquid based and I've never really gave a thought to soap in all honesty. The first thing I think of when it comes to soap is dryness, it would always make my hands and body dry (except the beloved dove soap obvs!) but this soap by Dr Botanicals is amazing, it is so moisturising and it leaves my skin feeling all kinds of soft. I also like the fact you can smell it after your shower once your dressed I feel so fresh and the citrus smell is perfect for morning showers it wakes me up a bit.


Nip + Fab Glycolic Fix Daily Cleanse Pads

Radiance boosting pads, soaked in exfoliating Glycolic Acid to retexture and resurface skin while added witch hazel helps to tone/
How to Use: Simply wipe pad across face and neck after cleansing the skin, once-twice daily.
My thoughts: This basically acts like a toner which I personally am a huge fan of. I am still obsessed with my Ultrabland cleanser by Lush Cosmetics and I use this after that and my skin looks bright and refreshed and feels absolutly amazing. I do think a lot of that is the Ultrabland cleanser though! It's insane.

Pür Fully Charged Mascara

Using new generation technology with their unique formula through a magnetic polymer matrix that binds each lash in a positive electric charge - technical but exciting!
How to Use: Place the brush at the base of lashes and hold for a few seconds to set, wiggle the wand in a back and forth motion and repeat to build it up. Use the wand vertically for lower lashes.
 The wand on this mascara is beautiful, I must admit I don't 100% get this product, I recently tried Ardell's Magnetic lashes so reading the description for this mascara sounded like I was about to swipe lots of tiny magnets on my eyes, it just sounded bizarre. However, I do really like this product and it makes my little lashes look so spread out and long, it's not hard to take off at the end of the day either.


Glamglow Supermud Clearing Treatment

''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/combinational skin, apply a thin layer to clean skin. Leave on for 20 minutes and remove with water. If you have sensitive skin, use soleely on the T-Zone.
I am pleasantly surprised with this mask, I have steered away from Glamglow just because I saw it everywhere so it almost felt like I'd tried it, I don't know it's weird I basically didn't expect too much from this product but I actually really enjoyed using it and my skin felt so nice afterwards and my skin has definitely seemed a lot clearer.


Emma Hardie Moringa Cleansing Balm

A luxurious daily cleanser that works to lift away makeup and impurities while revitalising dull skin, leaving your face radiant and hydrated.

How to use: Take a small amount and warm between your fingers to melt the product a little. Apply to face, neck and eye area and massage thoroughly into skin. To remove, soak a cleansing cloth in warm water and gently wipe over the entire face and neck.
 I have wanted to try this cleansing balm by Emma Hardie for the longest time! I have such a huge tub of my Lush cleanser I just didn't see the point of purchasing it just yet but now I have the chance to sample this and see if it's better than my beloved Ultrabland. You can also use this as an overnight facial treatment or on spots and breakouts which really surprises me because it's quite an oily texture and when I think of oil I definitely don't think of breakout treatments thats for sure. This is just as good as the Ultrabland cleanser if not -dare I say it, maybe even better - I know insane! In my fingers it felt oily but weirdly doesn't make my skin oily in the slightest it leaves it super soft and radiant and I will not think twice about repurchasing this product it's amazing.


Nuxe Creme Fraiche de Beauté

This Nuxe moisturiser melts effortlessly into the skin, softening, soothing and protecting you for 48 hours with its dose of vegetable milks and algae extract. Your skin will be safeguarded against damaging pollution and left feeling supple, fresh and plump in appearance.

How to use: Apply liverally morning and/or evening to the face and neck.
This smells gorgeous and it is so soothing on my skin. It's a 48hr Anti-pollution cream which is gorgeous it makes my skin feel insane. I am already such a huge fan of Nuxe and I will definitely be repurchasing this product too. 

I am so happy with this months box, LookFantastic constantly smash it when it comes to these boxes (and their christmas advent calendars) My two faves have to be the Nuxe Anti-pollution cream and the Emma Hardie cleanser I have enjoyed using them so much. What do you think? Do you recieve any beauty boxes?
