Today I have the first Lookfantastic beauty box of 2015 to share with you! So far I’ve bought every box available since they were first started in September last year, and overall there have been some really great products included. This is of course fantastic, but it also gives Lookfantastic a lot to live up to. Let’s see how January’s box fared up…
- Nuxe Masque Creme Fraiche de Beaute 50ml full size, £19.50
- Dualsenses Color Extra Rich 60 Sec Treatment 50ml, 200ml is £11.00 making 50ml £2.75
- Molton Brown Templetree Body Wash 100ml, 300ml is £18.00 making 100ml £6.00
- Philip Kingsley Daily Damage Defence 60ml, 250ml is £22.00 making 60ml £5.28
- MyVitamins Energise Tablets, full size pack of 20, £4.49
- Gatineau Strategie Jeunesse Eye Pads, 1 pair. 6 pairs are £34.50 so one is £5.75
Total = £43.77, this is the lowest value box so far.
Ok so value isn’t everything – at all, but on first glance I’m kind of on the fence a bit about this box. On one hand I love that there are some really generous sized products here, including two full sizes (this is the Nuxe and My Vitamins) but on the other I’m a bit disappointed with the Dualsenses 60 Sec Hair Treatment as it’s specifically for ‘thick to coarse colour treated hair‘ and my hair is completely the opposite – fine and not colour treated. It would have been nice to have a less targeted hair treatment included instead. I am though, super happy to find a nice little Molton Brown product in the box, the Templetree fragranced Body Wash smells divine! I’m a recent convert to Molton Brown after trying out one of their gift sets at Christmas and I don’t think I’ll ever look back. The Nuxe mask is also a product I’ve heard of before and after being impressed with the Nuxe Nuxellence Jeunesse Youth and Radiance Revealing Fluid from my November box, I’m really looking forward to trying this product out. Gatineau is another brand I’m familiar with by name only, theses eye pads are supposed to revive and rejuvenate the eye area which is exactly what my tired / baggy / dark circled eyes need right now, so fingers crossed these will do what they’re supposed to! And I’m also interested to try the Philip Kingsley Daily Damage Defence product as I have a bit of a love / hate relationship with haircare due to my super fine hair. I hope this will suit me and not weigh my hair down. And lastly the vitamin tablets, these are the ‘effervescent’ type that you drop into a glass of water and they kind of fizz. I’ll definitely be making the most of these as I’m out of vitamins at the moment.
I do really love the Molton Brown product, but I have to say overall this is probably my least favourite box so far, which is a shame. So I guess I now need to decide should I buy the February box or not? What do you think?
I hope you enjoyed my review xxx
