We’re getting so close to Christmas now, it’s crazy! I can’t quite believe it’s next week and I hate to say this but I am not in the least bit ready, maybe because I’m not feeling all that festive yet and to be honest it is still quite warm for winter. Hmmm… Anyway, today I am reviewing for you the December Look Fantastic beauty box; the third of the limited edition Christmas boxes.
I was pleased to see another Eve Lom cleanser in the box this month as I have really enjoyed using the Eve Lom Summer Ready Complexion Cleanser I received in the August box (here). However, it took me ages to work out how to get product out which sounds bizarre but it’s true. To the eye it looks like a normal tube with a screw lid however the lid does not come off, for ages I was clicking it back and forth and it’s only when product suddenly landed in my hand did I realise it was a twist cap. Maybe it was just me being a bit slow but there was nothing anywhere giving instructions so I just assumed I had a faulty tube. That being said, it is of course a lovely product and absolutely leaves my skin feeling youthful and radiant. The only thing I would say wasn’t ideal was that it recommends leaving the product on for a couple of minutes before washing off, on a weekend this is fine when I have the time to do that but for an everyday cleanser I haven’t got that kind of time in the morning for one product/stage in my routine.
I am yet to try the false double lashes from Eylure but I am excited too and no doubt an opportunity will present itself over Christmas. They do possibly look a bit too dramatic for what I would normally wear and seem to remind me of Jessie from Little Mix for some reason -anyone else know what I mean here? But I have heard such good things about Eylure lashes.
I also have yet to try the Pailette Glitter eyeliner from Lord & Berry but as you can tell from the above swatch it’s dark and it’s glittery; a party essential!
I am undecided if I like the Codage No3 Radiance & Energy Serum. It’s described as being ‘a genuine elixir of cellular replenishment, especially formulated to detoxify and restore brightness to lacklustre skin.’ I think it’s the packaging; while it’s small and compact, the pump distributes the smallest amount so it takes a few pumps to get enough product. To apply the serum is perfectly fine but it hasn’t totally blown me away just yet, but I will continue using and see if I notice anything in time.
If I had received the Wetbrush Squirt earlier in the year when I had long hair, I think this would have been a total blessing in disguise as it glides through wet hair like a dream. For shorter hair, while it’s still a brilliant brush, I have been far too loyal to my trusty Detangler for that to be suddenly budged out the way. But if you are looking for a alternative to the Detangler, the Wet Brush is a worthy contender.
Finally and possibly my favourite within the box this month, the Molton Brown Body Wash in Japanese Orange. I love orange and citrus scented products and this body wash is not only luxury, it’s not overpowering in its scent so it’s a total pleasure to use.
Until next time x
