The fourth in a line of themed boxes (there was the #LFLoves box in February, the #LFExplorer box in March and the #LFBlooms box last month), the #LFHelloBeautiful box is all about celebrating your natural beauty and as a result, this month's products appear to be ones for us to enhance what we were born with. So let's get onto exactly what is included in the May Look Fantastic beauty box;
If you've been reading Ellis Tuesday for a while now, then you will probably know just how much I adore The Wet Brush so to see a full sized version of my favourite hairbrush included in this month's box was a real treat. I first discovered The Wet Brush back in 2014 and it immediately transformed the way in which I dealt with my hair. It may sound strange to deem a hairbrush revolutionary but when your hair constantly tangles, particularly when it's wet and even a Tangle Teezer is no match for it, to try out The Wet Brush and have it glide through my hair was a big deal. It's great to have another colour to add to my collection. And the fact that it retails for £11.99 and this whole box is just £15, or cheaper if you take advantage of their subscription options, kind of blows my mind a little. In essence, the brush on it's own and a copy of Elle magazine would quickly take you over the £15 price tag.
The next product that I was immediately happy to see in this month's box was the Eve Lom Cleanser. Even though it's a sample size, what really impressed me was the fact that it came with one of the Eve Lom muslin cloths. When you take into consideration the fact that one of these cloths costs almost £5 to buy on it's own, this certainly elevated this sample to the luxury side of things. The Vichy Liftactiv Supreme Day Cream sample also feels of a similar luxurious quality. Little things like it being in such a great little jar and it being boxed like the full size is, gives the sample that extra touch of glamour.
The little pods of Ioma Paris' Youthful Moisture Cream really do look particularly interesting. I like the fact that they've dispensed daily amounts of the cream when it comes to this sample. I'll certainly be taking this weeks worth of moisturiser with me on my next trip and it really is much better than taking a big tub of cream along with me that will inevitably spill or be too much for a mini break. I was also intrigued to see the Revlon Uniq One All In One Treatment. Anything that promises ten benefits, especially when it comes to hair, has my interested piqued. It also smells of coconut, which can only be a good thing. And a REN sample is always a welcome treat for me when it comes to beauty boxes. This Wake Wonderful Night-Time Serum could potentially be my dream night cream as it feels so lovely on the skin after a long day.
Despite all of this, I have to say, I was a little disappointed to see such a small sample in the form of Decleor's Intense Nutrition Comforting Cocoon Cream. This is the kind of sample that is an added bonus when you buy a full size Decleor product but to have it included in the #LFHelloBeautiful was pretty poor, especially as I'm normally really happy with the size of the products and samples included. Maybe it was just a blip though. I guess we will see when the June box is released.
Again, like I've reiterated in all of my recent Look Fantastic beauty box reviews, the latest copy of Elle magazine is included alongside the box itself. Whether you're a regular reader or not, this will always be a big plus point for me when it comes to Look Fantastic's beauty box and it sure does make it stand out from similar boxes on the market as a result.
Apart from the tiny Decleor sample, I'm impressed with the May box. It's back to basics beauty theme is one that I really enjoyed and it certainly has you covered when it comes to hair and your skincare routine.
