Fantastic Looking August

Yes, it’s that time again! I almost said that time of the month but… you know. It just sounded wrong somehow. Anyway, I thought it’d be nice to take a little break from all the serious writing I’ve been doing here recently and explore my oh so pretty beauty box. So let’s get to it.

Firstly – I’m starting to believe Lookfantastic can’t do wrong with their monthly box designs. It’s gooooooooorgeous blue with golden writing saying ‘Global Glamour’ in the middle of the lid. I love it a LOT.

Secondly – the products this month… There’s the mandatory Elle to keep up with everything that’s going on in fashion, beauty and the world of empowered women. As for the products, I’m actually actively using nearly everything in it at the moment. So I guess you could say it’s been a roaring success with me.


Korres, Moisturising Body Milk in Bergamot Pear. I love it. I love it soooooooooo much. It’s quite lightweight so it absorbs well, it smells incredible and leaves my skin so soft. I can’t wait to buy it again and buy it in other scents as well. LOVE IT!


Gatineau, Gentle Silk Toner. Another product that’s already half gone. I’m not sure if I love it because I didn’t currently have a toner already or because it’s actually that good. Probably the latter. It smells quite strongly of.. something. I can’t really put my finger on it, but it smells clean. Plus it’s a light pink colour. Very pretty.


Lottie London, Balm Ball Lip Hydrator in Strawberry Shortcake. It does actually smell a bit like strawberry shortcake. I’m quite impressed. I like the shape of it – it’s very cute and quite different from my other lip balms. I have been using it quite a bit since I got it. Maybe that’s more to do with the smell rather than the adorable shape of it though.


Lord & Berry, Magic Brow Pencil. You know when there’s the word ‘magic’ in a product name you expect it to be beyond this world and make you believe in fairy tales, witches and wizards? Just me? Well, let’s get one thing straight – it’s a brow pencil, not a magic wand. I do like it for what it is however. It suits my eyebrow colour and is very easy to use.


Mane ‘n Tail, Shampoo & Conditioner. I don’t know if it’s actually horse shampoo or not, but I like the smell of it. I think it reminds me of nettles. Or something else green and fresh smelling like that. It does what shampoo and conditioner are supposed to do – clean my hair and make it all soft and swooshy. As swooshy as my newly shortish hair can be, that is.


Skin79, Super Beblesh Balm SPF 30 PA++ BB Cream. I don’t have a clue what any of that means. But it comes in a pretty pink tub. It’s quite lightweight, making it perfect for those days when you don’t really need any (or just very light) cover, but want something to brighten your face up a little.


That’s it! It feels like a LOT. Once again I’m absolutely in love with a few of the products – yay for finding new favourites! And I didn’t dislike any of them. So that’s good.

Keep it up, Lookfantastic!
