Lookfantastic Beauty Box No2 Review

Hey Beauties!

Can you believe that in about 3/4 years of blogging, I have never tried any beauty boxes before? I’ve always meant to but it just seemed like a waste to me, why would someone spend £15-£20 on a box of samples that you could easily get for free elsewhere. So i recently bit the bullet and bought one of the Look Fantastic Beauty Boxes just to see if it was any good and to see what everyone else thought?

Lookfantastic Beauty Box No2 Review
In this box you will find 6 great products, I actually enjoyed most of them, maybe not the lipstick because I don’t like red or the Dr PawPaw Tinted Balm but besides that there are some great products in this box. I think this box would be best for those of you out there who are looking to try out new products without having committed to buying the full size. A negative I saw straight away with these types of boxes are there might be products in there that you can’t use or aren’t for your skin type which is rather annoying when say 4 of the products are the ones you don’t like or can’t
Ole Henriksen Empower Foaming Milk Cleanser
Ole Henriksen Empower Foaming Milk Cleanser
First product in the box is the Ole Henriksen Empower Foaming Milk Cleanser which transforms into a creamy lather to effortlessly dissolve all traces of dirt, impurities and makeup while helping to preserve the skin’s natural moisture mantel. Infused with antioxidant-rich arctic cloudberry to protect from free radical damage, omega-6 powerhouse nordic cotton extract to deliver weightless hydration and willow bark extract to gently smooth skin, I found this cleanser to work pretty well i used i with my Magnitone Fully Monty and it worked really well from what i could see it didn’t leave my skin feeling at all tight and did a great job of removing the days makeup
Kebelo Enriching Masque
Kebelo Enriching Masque
Next is the Kebelo Enriching Masque, before this box arrived i had never heard of this brand before but after a little research it seems to be quite a good brand offering a few interesting products. Kebelo Enriching Masque is designed for naturally dry hair, to give it the rich moisture it needs to stay smooth and shiny. The Enriching Masque by Kebelo contains natural powerhouse ingredients like guar sugar, grapeseed, bran and argan oil which we work together to repair and restore dry strands whilst mimicking the scalps natural oils, leaving dry hair feeling nourished and more fabulous than ever. This masque smells amazing it actually reminds me of the Wella Brilliance mask I think? I know its a high end product which smells the same I think it might be the grapeseed I’m smelling. I applied some of this to my hair after shampooing and even though you can’t tell how good something is after one use the Kebelo Enriching Masque made my hair feel so soft and made it look shiny as I have dry coarse hair I find this to be a big plus for this product
REN V-Cense Youth Vitality Day Cream
REN V-Cense Youth Vitality Day Cream
REN V-Cense Youth Vitality Day Cream is basically an anti aging day cream I have been using it for a few days, which is nowhere near long enough for a good review, but my skin definitely does feel softer when I apply it and it does feel a bit more hydrated Although it does take a while to sink in because it is a rather rich product. REN V-Cense Youth Vitality Day Cream is a multi-active day moisturiser that prevents and minimizes the signs of premature aging. Its complex of actives intensely hydrated, protects from free radical damage and smoothes fine lines and wrinkles while boosting skin energy and elasticity. Skin stays hydrated, protected and glowing.
Korres Santorini Vine Shower Gel
Korres Santorini Vine Shower Gel
One of my favourite products in this box was the Korres Santorini Vine Shower Gel, which smells absolutely amazing. Korres describe it as a “fresh, fruity scent of blossoming” Korres Santorini Vine Shower Gel is a Soft moisturising shower gel, ideal for everyday use containing wheat proteins form a protective film on the skin, maintaining its regular hydration level, Greek wine grapes indigenous to Santorini and cultivated in the arid volcanic ash soil of the island. This mineral rich dark soil helps contribute to the grape’s uniqueness. The ancient vine variety goes back 400 years and remains phylloxera free. Growing on its own roots, the plants thirsty leaves capture sea mist water, which drifts across the island at night. There’s just something so calming and relaxing about using this its perfect to use after a long day.
Bellapierre Mineral Ruby Lipstick
Bellapierre Mineral Ruby Lipstick
Bellapierre Mineral Ruby Lipstick has been formulated with natural waxes and mineral pigments, iron oxides and antioxidants such as Vitamin C and Vitamin E. The smooth silky 100% natural formula delivers long lasting nourishing colour. The mineral pigments also provide natural protection from the sun and do not contain any lead, lanolin, parabens which means this lipstick will probably not last as long as some of the other lipsticks you own as it does not contain any preservatives.
Dr PawPaw Tinted Ultimate Red Balm
Dr PawPaw Tinted Ultimate Red Balm
Last but by no means least is the Dr PawPaw Tinted Ultimate Red Balm, which is limited edition for Christmas and is the perfect handbag must have, the tinted balm can be used on the lips, cheeks and cosmetic finishing. Containing natural ingredients such as fermented Paw Paw, Olive oil and Aloe Vera Oil
You can find the Look Fantastic Beauty Box No2 (£15) at lookfantastic.com where you can purchase either a box each month with no subscription or you can purchase a subscription for either 3,6 or 12 months.

  • I see this all the time people talking about shrinking their pores by using hot water and closing them with cold water but this simply isn’t possible 
There are no muscles connected to the pore so there is no way for them to open and close. The size of pores is largely down to genetics and there is not much you can do to change that.

He only muscle that can be found is the arrector pili which causes goose bumps by pulling the hairs up on your skin but it doesn’t have anything to do with your pores and tightening them. 
When you see an enlarged pore it doesn’t mean it’s open it most likely means it’s congested with dead skin cells and hardened sebum however you can fix this by using something like salicylic acid which can penetrate the pore lining and flush everything out making the pore appear smaller.

While there are products out there that can blur and temporarily tighten the skin there is nothing permanent out there that can change the size of pores.

  • If you haven't already heard Kylie Jenner is now dipping into skincare as well as makeup.

All I'll say is it's completely different putting a makeup line together as that's rather easy but trying to put together a skincare line that's actually useful and not a bunch of generic rubbish is harder.

Kylie Jenner has effectively repackaged one of the worst face scrubs known to man, St Ives Apricot Scrub! 
This new scrub will contain crushed walnut shells as it's main exfoliant which couldn't be worse for the skin as it has the tendency to cause micro tears in the skin if it's used roughly and can lead to all sorts of problems from letting bacteria into the skin to comprising your hydrolipid barrier.

With all of these new technology in skincare coming from brands like Deciem it feels like this Kylie Jenner product is coming from the late 2000s. To me it just screams lack of thought and can we talk about how generic it is? It's like all she wants to do is  make more money instead of actually formulating something actually useful.

What do you think about this new range? .

  • I know your first instance when it's really sunny is to strip off and enjoy the sun and while it's true you should enjoy the gorgeous days of summer you should be protecting yourself.

While we should be wearing sunscreen everyday it's especially important on beautiful sunny days like these.

You should be applying a broad spectrum sunscreen of at least SPF 30 every 2/3 hours when you're out in direct sunlight.

It's recommended that you use at least 20p piece size of sunscren for your face. 
I absolutely love the @larocheposayuki Anthelios range especially the Fluid version of Anthelios. I also really like @colorescienceuk sunforgettable mineral SPF 50 powder for reapplication when wearing makeup.

  • There's this idea that somehow applying more of a product will get you better results but this isn't true.

The opposite is actually true if you apply more all you'll get is unnecessary irritation and it might put you off using a product.

When using actives try to follow the recommendations on the back of the packaging.

I know I've done this before when I first used AHAs and it didn't go well but I'm glad I eventually learned as my mum would say "I'm a bull in a China shop" 🤣🤣

  • *SKINCARE ROUTINE*
I thought I would mix up my routine a little bit lately.

Cleanser- @dermalogicauk  Special Cleanser - I love this little bottle it's great for using when at the gym. It's a basic cleanser that gets the job done.

Tone/Serum - @katesomervilleskincare Dermalquench Liquid Lift *gifted* -  I apply it straight after cleansing. This is a spray loaded with hyaluronic acid and oxygen, apparently it's meant to felt firm and smooth whilst quenching and plumping the skin hence the name. It really is amazing if I'm honest it's as if you're just wiping away any dehydration and puffiness.

Serum - @officialmedik8 Hydr8 B5 Intense *gifted* - Whilst I do feel like this is way too expensive for what it is I do really like it. Hydr8 is really hydrating and soothing Its great for using with a retinol as it helps to combat the dryness with the Natural  Moisturising Factors (NMF)

Treatment - @sundayriley A+ Retinoid Serum *gifted - This is a brand new retinoid to me I originally used Luna which was the first ever retinoid I used so I was pretty excited to try this out. it says it's 6% it's more like a 4/5% because there's no way the plant like ingredients actually constitute as retinol. Other than that I'm liking it it doesn't compare to Adapalene but it's still good.

Moisturiser - @stubborncosmetics Customised Moisturiser *gifted - I am freaking loving this moisturiser it's so good to have a different moisturiser for the different parts of my face. I'm amazed no one has had this idea before it's so simple yet genius! I have combination skin so there is a side for the dry patches and a side for the oily parts of my face. This is a truly balancing moisturiser ❤️
