Look Fantastic sent me a special treat this month to promote their Black Friday offers. If you haven’t tried a beauty subscription service before, but you like to try new, premium and less-known beauty brands, beauty boxes are a great way to sample products.
All of the goodies I received are for sale on Look Fantastic’s website, although the box itself was a one off. However, there are loads of amazing Black Friday offers available from Friday 27 to Monday 30 November. Each of my product reviews below corresponds with a Black Friday offer. Click on the links to check them out.
This product is for oily, imperfection prone skin, or skin with blackheads, irregular texture and shine. Apply morning and/or evening to the entire face, avoiding the eye area. The daily care cream combines exfoliating LHA with the anti-oxidant anti-sebum complex Vitamin E + Carnosine + Airlicium. The texture is fresh and non-oily. It makes a good makeup base too.
The blurb: from the very first application, skin is purified for an all day clean and fresh skin sensation. After one month, skin is transformed: smoothed skin texture, unclogged pores, controlled shine. Long-lasting results on imperfections and blackheads: After eight weeks of product use, effects remain for up to three weeks.
Look Fantastic Black Friday offer: Three for the price of two across the La Roche-Posay range.
The morning cleanser is suitable for all skin types and is applied on dry skin, using gentle circular movements. I’ve mentioned before that I don’t get on with Eve Lom products. I found this one thick and greasy with a waxy fragrance. I needed soap just to remove it from my hands.
The blurb: Morning Time Cleanser contains the four signature Eve Lom aromatic cleansing oils together with papaya enzymes and carrot oil to stimulate collagen production, leaving skin radiant, refreshed and balanced. It works to decongest the skin and remove even the most stubborn waterproof make-up, whilst rejuvenating and deeply nourishing tired skin.
The cleanser in the pot has the consistency of a thick body butter which melts on the skin. Again, not my cup of tea, but as mentioned in my previous post, it does work.
Look Fantastic Black Friday offer: An exclusive Limited Edition 450ml cleanser with a £110 saving, worth £250 – buy now for £140
A miniature version of the original Amazing Concealer, the waterproof and highly pigmented formula conceals dark circles, blemishes, sun damage and broken capillaries. Very lightweight – just dab onto the skin and blend. This comes in several tones. I received one in medium beige, which I didn’t think would blend into my fair skin, but it did. It concealed perfectly, leaving a slightly powdery finish.
The blurb: The celebrity makeup artist’s favourite. Mulipurpose full coverage concealer. A small amount is needed to erase any imperfection.
Look Fantastic Black Friday offer: Three products for the price of two across a selection of products.
The tingling and exfoliating treatment mud mask works for all skin types to tackle any problem areas and leave skin soft and renewed. It’s meant to be applied with a clean foundation brush to dry skin and left on the skin for 10 minutes.
The blurb: Say hello to the exclusive facial treatment that’s all the rage in Hollywood right now… GLAMGLOW Face Mud Mask will leave your face totally rejuvenated and your complexion gleaming within 10 minutes – WOW! Made from only the very finest quality ingredients, such as French sea clay and volcanic minerals GLAMGLOW Face Mud Mask makes it the number one choice of Hollywood film stars. Your complexion is utterly refreshed and glowing for three days after application.
Look Fantastic Black Friday offer: Three for the price of two across the GlamGlow range.
The sponge is a really easy way to apply liquid and cream foundations flawlessly. I dab a few spots of foundation onto my face before blending it with the sponge. The rounded sides are good for smoothing foundation over large areas of the face, while the flat edge is good for blending into the contours of the eyes and nose. This is a useful tool for any makeup kit and as long as you take care of it, washing it every couple of uses with a gentle soap or baby shampoo, it will last for ages.
The blurb: Finished with a precision tip that’s perfect for targeting specific blemishes and imperfections, the Miracle Complexion Sponge from Real Techniques will produce high definition results, so you can create a professional finish.
Look Fantastic Black Friday offer: Save 35% on core collection plus three for the price of two on everything else.
Does what it says on the packet! This detangling hairbrush can be used on all types of hair, wet or dry, without any pulling. This is going straight into my shower room.
The blurb: Offering a pain free way to ease out those nuisance knots, this Tangle Teezer Original Purple Crush will leave your hair silky soft and effortlessly smooth. Tangle Teezer’s uniquely designed teeth flex and flick as they glide through the hair, eliminating tangles and knots on contact, minimising breaking, splitting and damage caused by mistreatment. It’s perfect for all hair types and is recommended for fragile or colour-treated hair, hair extensions, weaves and children’s fine tangle-prone hair.
Look Fantastic Black Friday offer: Three for the price of Two across the hair care range.
