Look Fantastic Beauty Box January - Detox Edition | KMC Beauty


I haven't written a blog post since November, I am annoyed that I haven't found the time to put a post up sooner than this but with the New Year in full swing and the resolutions in full effect I am back to aiming for consistent content. If you follow me on Instagram you may have seen in December I posted a picture of my Mum's Look Fantastic Beauty Box, I liked hers so much that I subscribed to their Beauty Boxes so I could have one for myself and this month is the January Detox Edition.
I am looking forward to trying out all these new goodies from brands I have never tried before.


Kebelo Shampoo & Conditioner
When it comes to haircare I am always switching up my shampoo and conditioner, I am keen to try out the Kebelo Clarifying Shampoo and Conditioner. The Shampoo is said to detoxify and gently exfoliate the hair leaving it soft, smooth and purified and it also doubles up as a body wash, while the Conditioner claims to provide nourishment and hydration helping to keep hair looking healthy and glossy all day, key ingredients being Amaranth, Chamomile and Quinoa Seed.
Between bleach, toners and hot styling tools my hair gets a pretty hard time so hopefully this combo can give it back some life.

Bellápierre Shimmer Shadow
This is the only make-up related product in this month's Beauty Box which I am fine with, said to be a Shimmer Powder to provide long-lasting, vibrant colour that does not smear, crease or fade. This product is 100% hypoallergenic and suitable for any skin type. When swatching it feels like a less intense pigment, provides good pigmentation and was smooth against the skin, no abrasive chunky glitters just a shimmer as stated. You cannot go wrong with a warm bronzy shade I have the shade 'Earth' and although it says you can use this as a highlighter too I don't think that the colour is right against my pale skin as a highlighter but on the lids I think it will work well.
The Bellápierre Shimmer Shadow's retail at £9.74 each (while offers last) however the shade 'Earth' is not available singly on the LookFantastic website only in a set of 9 which retails at £59.99! It is available singly on their own website (here) but they retail at £12.99, they have 56 different shades to choose from.
If you are looking to try out some loose pigment shadows I would recommend the Makeup Geek Loose Pigment's (here) they are amazing quality and retail at £7.25 each.


Lancer The Method: Polish
This product is said to be a "gentle skin resurfacing treatment" which I think is a fancy way of saying it's an exfoliator. Claims to infuse the skin with oxygen and remove dull and dead surface cells for fresher, younger looking skin. I tried out this product after cleansing, this is not what I class as a "gentle exfoliator" it's extremely abrasive, which I love, I don't have sensitive skin and when it comes to exfoliators the more abrasive the better but if you have sensitive skin this product might not be for you. My skin did feel incredibly soft after use and I will continue to use this Polish until it runs out.
It's a pretty genorous sample size with 14g of product however I can't see myself forking out £76.00 a tube which is the LookFantastic offer price, the actual RRP is £113.50!
Find it here.


Darphin Azahar Cleansing Micellar Water
Another product always in rotation in my skincare drawer are Micellar Water's, they are super handy for removing any excess make-up that you didn't get when deep cleansing and even more handy if like me you swatch lipsticks or eyeshadows on your wrists, I like to use them to remove my swatches. Said to gently remove make-up and impurities without irritating the skin leaving it soft, I know I will get plenty of use from the little bottle.

Nuxe Nuxellence Detox
At the grand old age of 23 it's never too early to fight the battle of ageing, this is a night time treatment said to boost skin purification and cell renewal and on waking up Nuxe claim that your skin features will appear rested as if you slept for an extra 2 hours making your skin appear more radiant and rejuvenated. I am trying this almost immediately, my under eyes tell me everyday that I need more sleep.

LookFantastic offer a 3, 6 or 12 month subscription plan, I chose the 6 month plan at £12.50 per box.
