This month’s theme is Best of British!
Now, onto the items!
Percy Reed Hair Wonder Balm – 30 ml Value $9.40
This balm is a fragrant gel that can work for both towel-dried hair and fully dried hair. If you’re applying it to damp hair, this is designed to work as a base for styling products and makes hair styles last longer.
I tried it out on dry hair and I liked the softness and scent it added! It helped with fly-aways, too!
Bloom and Blossom Rejuvenating Facial Mist – 40 ml Value $7.80
This facial mist is made with 98% natural ingredients. My favorite ingredient is the lime oil – it makes this spray so refreshing! (Plus, I love that the mist itself is a very fine spray.)
Bee Good Vanilla & Honey Lip Balm – 10 ml Value $6.50
When I saw beeswax was one of the main ingredients, I expected the formula to be similar to Burt’s Bees but this is more of a gloss – thinner than your typical lip balm. And it gives way more shine that lip balm, too.
I won’t use this for regular lip balm use, but it’s great to add a lot of shine without any stickiness that some glosses have.
Before I even tried this, I was happy to see on the packaging that this formula is paraben, fragrance, and gluten free!
This lightweight cream absorbed almost immedaitely, and it was gentle on my skin, too. This is my new eye cream for the next week or two!
REN Flash Defence Anti-Pollution Mist – 9 ml Value $5.70
I just received this in the latest Limited Edition Birchbox, and I’m a fan!
This mist is supposed to provide a layer of protection for your skin against everyday pollutants.
I really like the scent and found the formula to be very refreshing. (And I like that you can apply this throughout the day over makeup.) The mist isn’t super fine, so make sure to hold it a good distance from your face before spraying!
Balance Me Congested Skin Serum – 7 ml Value $15
I’ve sampled the Balance Me line before, and I really like that their formulas are free of parabens, sulfates, and other ingredients you may want to avoid.
This serum is lightweight, gentle, and all around lovely. Plus! It has an amazing lemongrass scent!
Elle UK Magazine August 2016 Value $6
Each Look Fantastic Box also comes with the latest issue of Elle UK. I love mini magazines, fashion magazines, and foreign magazines, so this is the trifecta for me!
The Verdict: This month’s box has a value of about $73 – I think that’s amazing for a $22 beauty box shipped from overseas! It’s also a great way to try out some new brands. I really liked everything in this box, and while it was a little skincare heavy, that ended up working well for me this month.
This is an A+ beauty subscription box for me. The brands are great, the value is consistently good, the magazine is a nice special touch, and the packaging is fab, too!
