LFJetsetter Lookfantastic Beauty Box
Ciao! Greetings from the gorgeous and sunny Italy! If you follow me on social media especially Instagram (mrsjonasrecommends) or Snapchat (MrsJRecommends), you will already be up to speed and know that I am currently on my summer holiday! Everyone needs a little time out, you see. So before I get into what’s in this great box, I have to apologise for my sporadic posting schedule. The internet gods were not playing ball with me at my previous location and neither was the weather! That being said, let’s now go back to the box! It’s June and even though the UK has no sign of providing a heat wave, a lot of people like me have a little weekend away or a beach getaway booked in the diary. This month, the Lookfantastic beauty box is themed just in that jetsetter fashion with products to make you look and feel pampered and ready for your relaxing getaway. Now I actually didn’t open or use my box before I flew to Italy so I’ve been using some of these items whilst I’ve been away. Here’s what’s in the box:
Caudalie Premier Cru Eye Cream – Eyecreams are really important for protecting the delicate skin around the eye area. During the day I would opt for an eye cream with an SPF. (You can read my post on SPF eye creams here.) However, during the evening or just before bed, this eye cream is light and feels quite refreshing on the skin after a day out in the sun. Shocking to most but even Asian skin can get burnt even though you won’t notice any red patches! Under my eyes is the most sensitive part of my face so I am careful to always apply sunscreen and wear sunglasses.
Tan Organic Tanning Oil – If you have looked at my bio then you’ll know that I have no use for tanning oil. That being said, once I have got a tan and it starts fading, I may just give this one a go and see if it works. If not then I’m sure Mr J will be game.
Mr Blanc – This peroxide free teeth whitening strip is meant to absorb and lift surface stains off your teeth. I’ve not actually tried any product of this type apart from tooth whitening toothpaste, and with the endless amounts of amazing Italian coffee and delicious Tuscan wine, I feel like this will have to wait until I come back home to a semi carb-free lifestyle.
Naobay Oxygenating Cream Moisturiser – This moisturiser is made with a high concentration of natural ingredients including rosehip and sweet almond oils; the perfect source of hydration post prolonged intervals in the sun. I personally used this in the first two days of my break and I feel it would be perfect to keep on using post a holiday when after-sun is not really necessary but the skin is thirsty for hydration.
Korres Showel Gel – I’m really fussy when it comes to shower gels and especially when I’m away. The sole reason being I am a magnet for insect bites. So anything that is floral/sweet, I stay away from. Citrus scents are my only friends on holiday which is why the Korres Basil and Lemon shower gel is my perfect companion. I’m not new to this brand at all and I often buy this to use on a daily basis. The zingy fresh lemon scent always reminds me of being away or lying by the beach, even if it is pouring down with rain at home!
Cowshed Moisturising Hand Cream – The hand cream obsession continues and when I got to the airport and wanted to use one, I realised I had not packed one! So I must say, “Perfect packing Lookfantastic!” The hands always need some TLC and what better way to than with Cow Pat by Cowshed. If the blend of ingredients doesn’t get you hooked then the name will have you giggling.
Dead Sea Spa Magik Beauty Balm BB Cream – I love good BB cream but I’m not quite there yet with my tanning routine to go full on foundation-free. Next week, incidentally, is Dead Sea Magik’s week!
Mrs J’s Verdict – A 9/10 for me this month, a massive improvement on the previous month and full of relevant products for pre or post holiday. Next month I’d love to see some bronzing or highlighting products to help me show off that glow! Time to get your very own LFJetsetter box starting from £11 per month.
