I don’t review every Look Fantastic beauty box I receive, but this month’s edition is worthy of a post. The natural, organic and eco-friendly products have been selected to help us get in touch with Mother Nature in time for Spring. I haven’t properly tested all of the products yet, as the box only arrived this morning, but I can give you my first impressions.
What’s in the box…
I have the hands of an old woman, which is massively unfair as my mum’s hands are soft as butter. I’ve just had a go with this exfoliating scrub, which is infused with nourishing oils for deep hydration, and my hands feel instantly softer and smoother. The scrub contains Ginseng and Gingko Biloba and will restore moisture and balance to dry and damaged hands. This one is definitely going into the bathroom cabinet.
With no parabens, sulfates or synthetic fragrance, this shower gel is infused with organic cucumber extracts and Vitamin E, to nourish skin, wash away dirt, oil and impurities. It’s also safe to use if you’re pregnant due to its natural and safe ingredients (and no, I’m not, before you ask).
Briogeo’s hair mask is infused with Argan, Avocado, Rosehip and Sweet Almond Oils and is packed with Vitamins to leave your hair super soft (according to the blurb). The mask is cruelty free, silicon free and has no synthetic fragrance, parabens or phthalates, so it’s good for the most sensitive of heads.[Tweet “Review of @lookfantastic organic, natural #beautybox #lfblooms #beauty”]
Love the smell of this Elemis hand cream, which contains mood enhancing ingredients, such as Chamomile, Lavender and Palmarosa. The Shea Butter leaves your hands soft and hydrated, but doesn’t leave a greasy or oily residue.
Tanworx moisturiser is a good base for a fake tan, but also promises to make your existing tan last longer. Enriched with Carrot, Coconut and Sunflower Oils, as well as Hyaluronic Acid and Seaweed to lock in moisture, the cream has a light consistency and smells fresh. However, I found it left my skin feeling a bit ‘sticky’.
Balance Me is a British brand making natural products. The Body Polish is an exfoliant which is 99% natural and contains no parabens, sulphates, mineral oil (personal pet hate), silicones or artificial colours or fragrances. Ground Walnut spheres help to scrub away dead skin cells and product build up to reveal smooth and glowing skin. Use it in the bath to really work it in for best effect.
Suitable for vegetarians, these effervescent tablets will make a refreshing Vitamin infused, lemon flavoured drink when dissolved in water.
