lookfantastic beauty box june 2017 review

Lookfantastick Beauty Box for the month of June offers a lovely mix of products. Among worldwide available beauty boxes, LF is still the one that holds strong in my opinion. The included brands and sizing of the products that actually allows me to evaluate whether I would like to buy a full-size product is the biggest advantage over the others.

The Wanderlust Edition

What’s in the LF beauty box for June 2017?

The Wanderlust edition is filled with goodies we can find useful during our upcoming summer travels. I have been testing the products for the last week. Among the skin and hair care and two makeup items, I have found at least two that I can recommend.

Obviously, I always enjoy reading the ELLE UK magazine included in each box.

First Aid Beauty Facial Radiance Pads 60 Pads – €28,80

First Aid Beauty Facial Radiance Pads

Saturated with glycolic and lactic acid facial pads from the First Aid Beauty were a beauty life saver. I run out of my Paula’s Choice Glycolic Acid and my skin texture started to deteriorate. (Currently, I am expecting another delivery from The Ordinary with their toning solution) The pads were immediately implemented in my nighttime routine. The LF Beauty Box generous packaging with 28 pads will last for a full month treatment.

If you ‘ve never used AHA before this might be a great option for you to start with. The concentrations of acids are suitable for the daily usage. So there is no uncomfortable tingling sensation.

The AHAs are irreplaceable for bringing out the natural glow of the skin and evening out the skin discoloration. It is a necessary step for me to deal with the dark spots left after acne.

Monu Rosewood Reviving Mist 180 ml – €24,45

MONU Rosewood Reviving Mist

I use it as an additional skin care step, after the AHA and before the night cream.The MONU Rosewood Mist leaves a subtle glow on the skin so I skip it in the morning. But if you have dry skin you are going to love this mist, especially if you are heading to the beach.

I spray it all over my face, neck and decolletage so this 40 ml packaging should last me for another two weeks, give or take.

Kerastase Resistance Bain Force Architecte 250ml – €22,95

Kerastase shampoo and Balance Me Balancing Face Moisturiser

 

There were various options of the Kerastase shampoo (80ml bottle) in the box. I received Resistance Bain Force Architect – the strengthening shampoo for damaged hair. I noticed that my hair feel slightly thicker afterwards but the €10 I spent on the Dr Organic shampoos is already a bit of a splurge for me.

Balance Me Balancing Face Moisturiser 50 ml – €29,45

I do not have good experiences with the Balance Me skin care. It is great that their products are free from parabens, DEA, mineral oils and sulphates among others. Still, they never managed to knock me out of my socks.

The Balancing Face Moisturiser is supposed to eliminate shine and prevent spots. With my recent Figs and Rouge discoveries, this moisturiser is rather average. It does leave skin mattified for few hours though. Skin feels soft but when I smile I can feel it beeing tight if you now what I mean. So it might be a better solution for you beauty lovers with very oily complexions. I do not want to waste this 20 ml packaging so probably I will pass it over to a friend.

BellaPierre Cosmetics Shimmer Powder Eyeshadow 2,35 g – €15,95

BellaPiere Shimmer Highlighter in Exite

The Shimmer Highlighter is the name mentioned in the LF beauty book included in this box. But it is an actual Shimmer Powder Eyeshadow. This formula works great both on eyelids as it does on the cheek bones so no damage was done 🙂 I was surprised by its wear time on the eyelids. If you want to avoid eye irritation use a glitter glue

I was surprised by its wear time on the eyelids. If you want to avoid eye irritation use a glitter glue or an adhesive with it. I used very affordable Awsome Liquid Eye Primer from Makeup Revolution with it. Shade Exite I received is very finely milled so it might be that a decent setting spray will be just enough for you to keep it in place.

Hailey Baldwin for Modelco Super Lips Lipgloss in Biz – €20

Hailey Baldwin for Modelco Super Lips Lipgloss in Biz

The last makeup item in the box is a mini sized Super Lips Lipgloss from Modelco. it is one of the products created with cooperation with Hailey Baldwin. The product is a bestseller at modelcomsetics.com.

Shade Biz is almost transparent on my lips. I like that it moisturises the lips and leaves them soft after the gloss wears off. The formula is slightly sticky. Against the claims, I do not find it to be long-lasting. But it is nice lipgloss.

What I see myself buying afterwards would be the Facial Radiance Pads and the Mist. I think they are great addition to the skin care regime. In total 4 out 6 products in the Wanderlust box deserves thumbs up from me.

The Lookfantastick Beauty Box subscription starts at €15.50 per month. Including free worldwide delivery.
