On Friday you saw what I thought of the Degustabox Healthy New Year Box and Look Fantastic have taken a similar New Year's approach to this month's beauty box with an appropriate detox theme. So if one of your New Year's Resolutions is to start taking better care of yourself beauty-wise, then this really is the box for you.
What I really love about this month's box is the fact that there is a real mix of products, as this isn't always the case with certain beauty boxes. Sometimes you'll find that an emphasis is placed upon skincare, for example but in the Detox Box there's the perfect blend of haircare, skincare and make-up.
The inclusion of a clarifying shampoo in the first Look Fantastic beauty box of the year is an inspired choice. I've had the pleasure of putting this Kebelo shampoo to the test before and it really does do what it says on the tube. There's also a conditioner from their Silk range that works wonders on frizzy hair in particular (fellow frizz sufferers, I have an entire post dedicated to de-frizzing your locks in the works for the start of next month, so be sure to keep an eye out for that).
Then we have a selection of skincare. I've actually been meaning to try out some more micellar waters and a New Year is as good an excuse as any really, to do just that. This one from Darphin is incredibly mild on the skin. It also smells absolutely gorgeous. When I heard the word 'Detox' in regards to this box and opened it up to be met with Nuxe's Nuxellence Detox, I couldn't think of a more apt fit. This little beauty is designed to be used overnight to recharge your skin and leave it looking refreshed. Then there's The Polish Method by Lancer. This promises to improve skin tone and texture in a gentle manner, a claim I certainly can't wait to put to the test. If you're already a fan of The Polish Method or have wanted to try it out for a while now, Look Fantastic currently have a huge bonus sized bottle worth £114 for just £76. I love it when they do deals like that.
And last but not least, a make-up addition. This is a lovely golden/bronze shimmer powder from Bellapierre, admittedly a brand that does appear rather frequently in beauty boxes but I've yet to be disappointed by a product of theirs. My only slight issue with this month's box; the fact that the fabulously festive designs, as seen on the October, November and December boxes, are no longer. Surely I wasn't the only one who absolutely adored the gilded gold designs?
So for me, the Look Fantastic Detox Box* has really started off 2016 with a bang. I can't wait to see what's in store for the rest of the year.
What do you think of the Detox Edition of the Look Fantastic Beauty Box? Have you tried any of the products in this month's box? If so, what are your thoughts on them? And were any of your New Year's Resolutions beauty related?
