Look Fantastic June Review

Receiving my Look Fantastic box is definitely one of the highlights of the month!

I love getting surprise presents and the fact that I can’t see what I’m getting until it actually arrives.

This month it was the Jet Setter box so I was looking forward to lots of goodies to take on my travels.look fantastic june 1I must admit I was slightly disappointed when I opened the box as there were two items I knew I wouldn’t use – the self tan oil and teeth whitening strips. I was also a bit disappointed to see yet another Korres showergel as I’ve got quite a pile of these now. However, on reflection I liked the range of different products in the box and they would have all been ideal to take on holiday. look fantastic june 2

First up is the Dead Sea Spa Magic BB Cream and while I love this brand I was excited to try yet another BB cream that would be orange, have no staying power and just be generally rubbish. Boy was I wrong. This stuff is fantastic. I was wearing it on holiday on days I didn’t want to be under thick foundation and I really liked it on my skin. The colour did actually adapt to my skin tone, although it wasn’t that dark to begin with:IMG_7706It applies really nicely to the face and gives my skin a nice lift – a little bit of colour and coverage without feeling heavy on my skin or looking cakey at all. It has some great staying power too and even wearing this on a long day travelling home from Hamburg it still looked decent at 1am. I can’t recommend this enough and will absolutely be buying more. It’s not stocked on Look Fantastic it seems but I found it here for £16.44 for 50ml which I think is really good value (less than half the price of my foundation!)

Next is the Oxygenating Cream Moisturizing by Naobay and I really like the feel and scent of this. I didn’t take it on holiday as I had something a bit more smaller and compact to take but I’ve been using it at home and like it a lot. I’ve had no dryness on my face at all while using and it provides a decent base for my make up. This is £32.95 for 50ml so it’s inline with what I’d pay for a moisturiser. It’s tempting the next time I need a new moisuriser.

Finally from the facial skincare trio is the Caudalie Premier Cru Eye Cream and I did take this on holiday. I noticed a difference, particularly with make up application when I was using it. It tended to settle less in the lines around my eye when I was using it daily. However, this is £49 for 15ml so it’s not cheap. I haven’t been using it long enough to say I can see any reduction in my dark circles. If I did, it would be worth the money and so the jury’s still out on this one.

look fantastic june 3I’m going to skip past the Tan Organic Self Tan Oil as I didn’t use it (tanning ain’t my thing).

The Korres Showergel I haven’t used yet, but have smelled and as usual, it smells divine. You know you’re getting a good showergel with Korres so I can’t complain too much.

Finally is the Cowshed Moisturising Hand Cream and I wasn’t too impressed with this. It’s a bit too oily for me and left my hands feeling like they needed a wash! I’m really particular about hand creams and this has kind of put me off using it again so it got stashed away in my ‘holiday minis’ box.

Definitely a mixed bag again this month but I’m so grateful to it for the BB Cream. Knowing I’ve got a definite repurchase makes the box totally worthwhile. I’m still desperate for some more make up though… please, Look Fantastic?!

If you fancy signing up to this box – take a look here.
