Say hello to the lookfantastic July 2017 Beauty Box Pretty in Paradise. With it’s beautiful and on-trend palm print box design, this has to be one of the most aesthetically pleasing beauty boxes I’ve ever seen; and let’s be real, I’m 100% going to be up-cycling this box to keep my makeup testers in! But, it’s not just about the box design, inside the lookfantastic monthly subscription box are a mixture of full size and deluxe travel size beauty products (this time containing seven products instead of the usual 6!) and the July 2017 edition prides itself on helping to get you holiday-ready. So, let’s see what’s inside…
The lookfantastic July 2017 Beauty Box Pretty in Paradise contains a mixture of hair, skin, body and makeup products to help you get summer-holiday ready. My favourite product first up out of the box is the travel size Moroccanoil Hydrating Styling Cream (still a substantial size at 75ml). Filled with the precious Argan Oil ingredient, this hair cream helps to smooth frizz and add a light hold to your hair; perfect if like me you’re a curly girly and your hair becomes a little larger than life in hot climates!
Also included in the lookfantastic July 2017 Beauty Box Pretty in Paradise are a travel sized version each of the Regenerate Toothpaste and an Imedeen Advanced Beauty Shot. Travel sized toothpastes are always handy (especially for jetting away for a short break with hand-luggage only) and so I will definitely be taking this with me on my next getaway. The Imedeen Advanced Beauty Shot meanwhile is an anti-ageing collagen and Vitamin C drink which promises to get you glowing before your holidays.
Skincare wise, the July 2017 edition of the lookfantastic Beauty Box includes two more handy travel sized items, perfect for popping in your overnight bag. The Cowshed Chamomile Refreshing Toner has to be one of my favourite products in the box; I always have lots of mini moisturisers and cleansers for my travel bag, but for some reason it’s very rare to come across a travel sized toner. So this will definitely be getting some use! There’s also a travel size pot of facial SPF 50 from French brand Mimitika to help protect your complexion when venturing out into the sun on your holidays.
Finally, the two makeup items in the Pretty in Paradise lookfantastic Beauty Box both aim to highlight and contour your face for a natural, bronzed, summer glow. The Hot Makeup Bronzing Powder is a warm toned bronzer with gold glitter in it, which might work well for a holiday evening bronzed makeup look. The other cosmetics product is the Jelly Pong Pong Bare Necessities Highlighting Pencil, although I have to confess this product is too dark for my pale face to act as a highlighter, but may work better on darker skin tones. Instead I might use this as an inner eye eyeliner or to add a base colour to my lids.
It’s also worth saying that in each lookfantastic Beauty Box you also get a copy of that month’s Elle Magazine, which is worth £4 alone, so if you fancy catching up on the latest gossip whilst trying out some new beauty treats, it might be time for you to look further into a lookfantastic Beauty Box subscription. Prices start from just £13 a month, and after that you’ll be treated to new products through your door without having to re-order.
