So it’s 2016, and we have a market completely saturated with a never ending amount of beauty and skincare products, so how do you know where to start? How do you know what to buy? How do you know the best product for YOU? Well you don’t, that’s the problem. That’s why many of us rely on blogs and reviews to find out what people really think of these products, so we can decide if they might suit us too.
Having sensitive skin is especially problematic when trying to choose skincare – I should know. And I’m so excited to find out that Lookfantastic have come up with a great idea to help those of us that just aren’t sure which products to choose…
They have just launched three new special edition beauty boxes – but these are not beauty boxes as we know it. These boxes are especially curated by skin type, and there are options for If you have Normal/Combination skin, Oily/Blemish Prone skin, and Dry/ Sensitive skin which I have.
Each box is £35.00 and contains around £100 worth of skincare products, specifically chosen for your skin type. This is a fantastic way to try out products without spending a fortune, and you may just find the perfect solution for your skin too!
The Dry/Sensitive Edition includes a mixture of full size and trial size products:
- Eucerin DermatoCLEAN Mild Cleansing Milk 200ml (worth £9.00)
- Gatineau Aquamemory High Hydration Mask 15ml (worth £7.20)
- Balance Me Radiance Face Oil 10ml (worth £10.00)
- NIOD Multi-Molecular Hyaluronic Complex 30ml (worth £38.00)
- Embryolisse Lait-Crème Concentré 30ml (worth £13.00)
- Caudalie Vinosource S.O.S Morning Eye Rescue 15ml (worth £18.00)
- There’s also a very informative booklet included, not only giving you info about the products, but also skin facts and helpful information.
Eucerin DermatoCLEAN Mild Cleansing Milk – This light, non-fragranced cleansing milk is designed to remove make-up, dirt and excess oil, without stripping skin of moisture. Its mild, yet powerful formula uses APG Complex to dissolve impurities, whilst hyaluronic acid works effectively to deeply hydrate skin and leave it purified, soft and supple. Gluco-glycerol boosts moisture levels, making this creamy lotion suitable for soothing both dry and sensitive skin.
Gatineau Aquamemory High Hydration Mask – For skin that needs intense hydration, this mask aims to restore skin’s natural barrier, leaving it feeling instantly comforted and more supple. The Aquamemory High Hydration Cream Mask contains Sea Fennel and Brown Algae to help skin retain moisture, and Sweet Almond Oil to intensely nourish.
Balance Me Radiance Face Oil – This award-winning face oil is perfect for transforming dull, dehydrated skin into a radiant, dewy and glowing complexion, whilst also calming areas prone to redness. This skincare hero contains eight oil extracts including Amazonian buriti nut, Camellia and Rosehip Oils to reduce redness, address uneven skin tone and minimise the visible signs of ageing and scarring. The healing blend of Yarrow and Benzoin plus English chamomile work together to plump, soften and soothe the skin with each drop.
NIOD Multi-Molecular Hyaluronic Complex – Combining twelve forms of hyaluronic compounds, MMHC is the perfect product for plumping up and intensely hydrating dry and dehydrated skin. This advanced serum absorbs quickly to target fine lines and wrinkles, preventing moisture loss and increasing short-term elasticity to reveal a more youthful-looking complexion. The serum also works to strengthen the skin’s structure, giving a visibly hydrated, comforted and smoother complexion.
Embryolisse Lait-Crème Concentré – This amazing sounding multi-tasker can be used as a moisturising lotion, primer, face mask and even a make-up remover! It contains essential fatty acids and vitamins to reduce irritation and plump skin, and it’s enriched with nutrients and water to balance skin and promote cell renewal. The lotion delivers a satin film to reduce dryness and discomfort for a soft, radiant complexion.
Caudalie Vinosource S.O.S Morning Eye Rescue – This product promises to instantly soothe and refresh tired and sensitive eyes. Enriched with organic grape water, which is 100 per cent natural, it’s hypoallergenic and oil-free – making it suitable for the most delicate and sensitive skin around the eye area. Morning Eye Rescue also contains white tea extracts to decongest skin, leaving it fresh and glowing.
Well, all these products sound fantastic to me, but I’m especially keen to get started with the NIOD MMHC and the Embryolisse Lait-Crème Concentré – I need to know if this really can do everything it promises!
I think this box contains a great looking selection of products, and if they actually work for me, my skin will be very happy indeed. Lookfantastic have definitely hit the nail on the head here with their tailored skincare boxes, and I think they’re going to be very popular indeed.
I’ll be trying these products out over the coming weeks so I’l let you know my thoughts on them very soon. I’d love to hear which products you’d recommend for sensitive skin?
I hope you enjoyed my post xxx
