#LFXMAS the Lookfantastic December Beauty Box
December is the only time of year (with exception to the summer wedding season) where we all feel the need to look our best. Gorgeous skin and gorgeous hair are the order of the day and sparkles…lots and lots of sparkles! Whether you’re a Christmas party animal or more of a pamper-and-cosy-on-the-sofa kind of girl, this month’s box will have you ready to do both!
So what’s in the December box?
Bubble T Bath Bomb – This is one solid and big bath bomb and a brand that I have never tried before. I rarely get time to have a relaxing bath but when I do, I usually opt for the full on pamper sessions. This Hibiscus and Acai Berry Tea scented bath bomb is infused with Goji Berry which is rich in antioxidants and vitamins A and C to refresh and protect the skin. Essential oils are also added to nourish and sooth the skin. To see more from the Bubble T range click here.
Skin Republic Caviar and COQ10 Face Mask – Another new brand for me this month. This intensive recovery serum enhances the skin’s elasticity for it has ingredients rich in vitamins, antioxidants and amino acids that help hydrate, nourish and revitalise. CoQ10, Caviar and Witch Hazel help protect the skin and reduce redness for a youthful appearance.
Mellow Cosmetics Madness Lipstick – This designed and developed New Zealand brand is another first discovery in this month’s box, bringing glamour and everyone’s favourite red lipstick for this time of year. With a matte formula, this lipstick is said to be long lasting and easy to apply. When wearing matte lipsticks, always remember to exfoliate those lips prior, and use a good lipliner for a flawless finish.
Balance Me Pure Skin Face Wash – It’s so great to see a different product from Balance Me in a beauty box. Having tried the Balance Me Eye Cream and Body Wash a few times, it’s great to be able to sample something else from the range. Balance Me Face Wash, like most face washes, helps clear away any dirt and makeup from the face. It is also good for sensitive and specifically congested skin types that are dull in appearance. Its gentle sulphate-free formula does its job effectively without disrupting the skin’s balance.
Philip Kingsley Elasticizer – If you have never used this product then I urge you to buy one now! With most conditioners that require you to apply and wait mid shower (which is most inconvenient), this Elasticizer is a pre-shampoo treatment. Being incredibly lightweight and in a dreamlike formula, applying it to your hair and carrying on with whatever you’re doing for 15 or 20 mins is what I call multitasking. The treatment is perfect for dry hair and an essential when battling the winter weather – it adds bounce, body, volume and softness.
Illamasqua Hydra Veil – This is one of my all-time favourite primers that hydrates the skin and lets it breathe. Perfect at achieving that flawless complexion and essential to wear underneath a full face of makeup to make it last all day. Hydra Veil contains a blend of vitamin C and B3 as well as micro algae to nourish the skin.
Mrs J’s Verdict – I am so happy with this month’s box and can highly recommend it as a gift for someone this Christmas. Each and every item in this box is sure to be used by myself and will probably be used up by the time the January box comes out. It’s just the perfect way to end the beauty year! I can’t wait to see what new brands and products make it into the box next year!
