Now that it's officially Winter (it was snowing here in Scotland this week), I feel like it's okay to finally get properly excited about all things Christmas without universal chants of 'IT'S TOO EARLY!' being shouted at you. And this month's Look Fantastic beauty box has anticipated that festive shift with their #LFSparkle box.
Straight away the sparkle theme became clearly apparent as I pulled out the glittery Look Fantastic nail file from the box. A nice touch for the Christmas party season. Then I spotted the Look Good Feel Better angled blending brush and got even more excited to delve into this month's offerings. The brush is such great quality and it really nestles into the eye socket well too. Next I uncovered two brilliant hair products, one of which I'd been dying to try. The L'Oreal Mythic Oil is as good as I'd hoped it would be and the Sebastian Professional Volupt spray is ideal for adding much needed volume to my roots, particularly over the holidays.
You'll also find a makeup item in this month's box and it's one that I think will work well for many different skin tones and colours. I'll definitely need to check out some more of Model Co's offerings after trying this.
And last but not least you'll find two products, both of which are ideal for the colder months. Monu's Soothing Touch Recovery Balm feels so lovely and hydrating on the skin, whilst the Bloom And Blossom Revitalising Foot And Leg Spray will certainly be coming with me the next time I travel. If you're visiting relatives this Christmas, be it by bus, plane, train, ferry or car, this spray is designed specifically to boost your circulation and leave you with a pleasant fragrance, one that's not always around on public transport.
Don't forget that you also get the latest copy of Elle magazine with each Look Fantastic beauty box, which is such a great deal. It also saves me buying it separately now.
I think a beauty box like this one would make for a great Christmas gift, especially if you know the person you're buying for is a fan of all things beauty or trying out new brands and products. You could even gift them a 3, 6 or 12 month subscription, if you're feeling particularly generous this holiday season.
What do you think of the #LFSparkle beauty box? Have you tried any of the products in this month's box? If so, what do you think of them? And are you starting to get excited for Christmas now?
