What’s in the box?
PRAI – Throat & Decolletage Cream
This is a sample sized (15ml) Throat & Decolletage Cream – a number one best-selling cream from PRAI for the throat and décolletage area. Ingredients include Shea Butter, Mulberry, Saxifrage and Grapeseed extracts which combined help to hydrate, brighten, diminish age-spots and discolouration. It’s a fast-absorbing, weightless cream which helps to improve crepey skin, double chins, droopy jowls and turkey necks! Ha. To be honest, I wasn’t excited about this cream at first but after doing a little research on it I’m interested to see if it really works! I get paranoid that I have drooping jowls and my jawline isn’t as defined as I’d like it to be so hopefully this will help. I do always forget but skincare is not just for the face and body! We have to look after our neck and chest area too if we want to prevent premature ageing, the earlier the better!
DR. LIPP – Elderberry Lip Tint
This is a full-size, 100% natural and cruelty-free Elderberry Lip Tint from Dr.Lipp – makers of the Original Nipple Balm. It leaves lips feeling soft and smooth and is fragrance and additive free infused with natural Elderberry pigment. It has a high-gloss finish and gives the impression of a naturally stained lip. I’ve heard of the brand before but before but never tried any of their products so I was quite happy this was in October’s box.
MONU SKIN – Night Renewal Complex
This 30ml travel-sized Night Renewal Complex is a light weight face cream from MONU that refreshes and rejuvenates skin while you sleep. It contains Marine Collagen and Vitamin E to improve elasticity and brighten the skin. It also helps to smooth out fine lines and wrinkles, improve firmness and prevent ageing too. What’s not to love! I LOVE MONU Skin and I already own a handful of their products, which have all been amazing. This Night Renewal Complex is no different! I have only used it a couple of times but I’m loving this cream so far, my skin defo looks firmer the next morning and it feels so soft too! Plus, it really does help to smooth out fine lines and wrinkles!
PIXI – Fresh Face Blush
I was so happy when I seen this full-sized Fresh Face Blush (shade: Beach Rose) in this months box. I’m a big fan of PIXI products and I have been in need of a new blusher so it came at the right time. It is a natural, warm-toned blusher infused with pure botanical ingredients to give cheeks a radiant, healthy glow. I love to sweep a little over my nose for a sun-kissed look!
AHAVA – Mineral Body Lotion
This is a travel sized (40ml) Mineral Body Lotion from AHAVA which contains Dead Sea Water & is rich in skin-friendly minerals; magnesium, calcium and potassium. It helps to increase skins moisture level, hydrate dry, itchy skin and provides all day comfort without leaving the skin feeling sticky, oily or greasy. I think this will be the perfect lotion for winter and I’m looking forward to trying it out, especially for my psoriasis which gets worse with the colder weather.
TALIKA – Bubble Mask Bio Detox
The Bubble Mask Bio Detox from TALIKA is a foaming charcoal mask containing thousands of nourishing microbubbles which detoxes the skin on contact. It also hydrates and unclogs blocked pores and helps to rid the skin of impurities. I’ve recently gotten into bubble masks so I can’t wait to try this out, I just hope it’s as good as the Oxygen Cleanse Bubble Mask from Skin Republic.
The October lookfantastic beauty mag explores the power and wonder of crystals – something I’ve been meaning to get into, so a good read for me! The mag also shares beautiful hidden locations around the world! Plus, we get a little guide to sparkling makeup and a Q&A with celeb MUA, Bryony Blake – the talented lady responsible for Holly Willoughby’s gorgeous make-up on This Morning! Oh and not forgetting our free monthly copy of ELLE mag which includes a free Chanel ‘Gabrielle’ perfume sample.
The lookfantastic Advent Calendar is also available to buy now! This year subscribers will get 20% off – just check your inbox for the discount code! I’m not sure which advents I’m getting this year but I’ll let you all know when I’ve chosen.
So, November is all about dark nights, hats, scarves, gloves and my one of my favourite events of the year – Bonfire Night! – or ‘bommy night‘ to us Liverpool folk! We receive six high-end makeup and skincare products next month including the Liquid Precision Pen Eyeliner from MELLOW COSMETICS.
