Look Fantastic | April Beauty Box

Look fantastic have always provided the most amazing beauty boxes, I’ve collected quite the stash of them now containing everything from skincare to lashes, to hair masks & hand creams - they have all areas covered as far as beauty is concerned. Always a sucker for great packaging, their usually clean white box features a burst of colour as it goes under the tagline LFBLOOMS to celebrate Earth Month. 

For me, the best thing about receiving a monthly surprise box is the fact that I’ve been able to try out brands that I would have never even considered picking up in store whilst falling in love with some absolute staples that are now a firm part of my daily routine. This months box packs in a variety of products including vitamins, show gel and the most amazing hand scrub. Here’s just a few of my favourites…..

With the not so Spring-like weather in the UK at the minute as well as being under mountains of stress at Uni my skin in general has taken a battering, my hands more so than anything else so this box could not have come at a more perfect time - welcome the Miracle Scrub by Rituals and the  Hand & Nail Butter by Elemis. Both products combined work a treat, I’ve used facial scrubs, lip scrubs and general body scrubs but never thought to give my hands a quick pick me up throughout the day, applying on dry hands, massaging your hands together for a few minutes and then rinsing off, you’re left with squeaky clean but not stripped, dry skin. Finish off with a small blob (that’s a technical word, I know) of the Elemis butter and your hands are literally baby butt soft. After using this duo for roughly a week, I’ve actually already noticed a difference in my nails more than anything else, they’re not as brittle and I’m not getting that awful dried, dead skin around my nails. 

Secondly, a little different for a beauty box you might think but being on a giant health kick at the moment these My Vitamins in association with My Protein were a welcome surprise. A pack of 20 dissolvable tablets that aim to support your wellbeing and health by providing you with a bunch of vitamins including B1, B2 and B6 (yep, that means nothing to me either but after a quick google it basically it a good boost for your system) The pack I received are lemon flavoured so it creates a really refreshing drink. 

Extra bonus, it came with a copy of this month’s ELLE magazine too so you can pamper yourself and pop your feet up! Kudos Look Fantastic on another insane box!
