#LFBLOOMS Beauty Box

by Steve Sinyard

The LookFantastic April Beauty box is here! It’s bright, it’s colourful and it’s full of Spring essentials but sadly, no makeup this month…

The products in this month’s beauty box are focused on buffing and polishing our tired winter skin in preparation for the beautiful British summer! I don’t think I am alone in saying that my skin is feeling very dry and dull so this was a welcome surprise. All of the products in this month’s box have been selected for their natural, organic and eco powers so you can get beach ready without any nasty chemicals.

What’s in the Beauty Box…

beauty boxFirst up is the very aptly named Miracle Scrub from Rituals. I have to admit a hand scrub isn’t something I ever really think to use. My hands are never dry enough to be chapped so I just don’t think to do it however, this stuff has totally changed my mind and will most definitely be getting used on a daily basis going forward! It smells absolutely delicious and my hands feel super soft and silky, especially when followed with the next delight…

Elemis British Botanical Hand and Nail Butter is super luxurious and smells like a garden just beauty boxexploded in my hands! It is bursting full of essential oils such as Lavender (which I am not usually a fan of for the record) and Chamomile, Geranium and Palmarosa to promote calmness and happiness. The smell is delicate and beautiful and my hands feel totally nourished and hydrated. This cute little handbag sized weapon will not go to waste!

bloom and blossom shower gel

Bloom and Blossom Bath and Shower gel – This felt lovely on my skin but it really is what it says on the tube – fragrance free. I like to jump in a tub full of bubbles bursting with fragrance or lather up in the shower and feel like I rolled in a meadow. This just didn’t do it for me. It has its positives like being Paraben and Sulphate free so it’s super gentle and safe for mum’s-to-be but a bit ‘meh’ for me. The upside however, is that being fragrance free it doesn’t overpower your perfume.dont despair care hair mask

Briogeo Deep Conditioning Mask – infused with avocado, sweet almond and argan oils and essential vitamins making it mega nourishing and super repairing. I have only used it once so far and my hair does feel softer but it has politely asked me to use it 3 times to feel the real benefits so I guess I will just have to persist! It doesn’t contain silicone either so you can rest assure that your hair condition is actually improving as opposed to just being coated with silicone illusions.

Wake each day excited to bloom in a new way…#LFBLOOMS

Balance Me Super Toning Body Polish  – this really gritty scrub smells just like marzipan thanks to the sweet almond oil and made my body feel buffed and instantly smoother. The little bumps on my legs that are hard to shift were gone in a flash! Loved it!
Tanworx Tan Maintainer would be a fabulous follow up to the Balance Me Body Polish on holiday, I haven’t personally tried this as anyone who knows me knows I am not a tanned individual at present! I will however be keeping both of these close for my trip to Barcelona this September.

The lack of makeup this month made me a little sad but in fairness I have ordered 3 huge Morphe eye shadow pallets from the States which should come in the next week or so, which means another blog coming soon!!
