Like clockwork, my monthly box of goodies arrived from Look Fantastic and this month -being January- is all about the detox. If I’m totally honest, this month’s box hasn’t thrilled me and I’ve had a couple of the brands before in previous boxes, so I didn’t feel I was getting a lot of new things to try which initially disappointed me. However, let me show you what’s in the box for January.
Disclaimer: Please remember these are my opinions alone and what does/does not work for me might be different for you.
L – R: Kebelo The Ultimate Hair Detox Shampoo; Dr Lancer The Method Polish; Kebelo Silky Soft Smoothness Conditioner; Darphin Azahar Cleansing Micellar Water (50ml); Bellapierre Cosmetics Shimmer Shadow in shade, Earth; Nuxe Nuxellence Detox (15ml).
Kebelo shampoo and conditioner – As mentioned above about how I have already received a couple of the brands before, I received this shampoo in last year’s July box and I don’t particularly remember loving it so to receive it again was annoying. That being said, used in partnership with the conditioner and my opinion changes, but it still doesn’t jump to the top of my favourites. When it comes to hair product samples, I love receiving oils and products to apply before drying and/or texturizing sprays, but shampoos and conditioners really don’t excite me.
Darphin micellar water – Unfortunately, my experience with this micellar water has not been good. I am not dismissing it’s claim that it ‘leaves skin soft, refreshed and feeling smooth and comforted’ as my skin certainly wasn’t agitated following use. My issue actually is how it cleanses. While I am happy to say that it broke down my eye makeup well, it smeared it all over my face in the process and took a further two-three soaked cotton balls to wipe it off. Am I prepared to switch from my current micellar water? Not with this product, no.
Bellapierre Cosmetics shimmer shadow in Earth –I initially dismissed this little pot of colour from Bellapierre Cosmetics having already received another of their shimmer shadows in my August box last year. With no disrespect at all to the brand as it was a lovely product, I have just struggled to use it because I don’t often have call for metallic glittery silver eye shadow. However, upon closer inspection of this month’s product, I realised that this was in fact a very wearable shade -almost like a cooper/rose gold- and it has very quickly become my favourite product in this month’s box. While it is loose powder and needs handling with care, it packs onto my eyelids beautifully as an all over base colour, which accompanied with a darker brown in the crease looks totally gorgeous.
I have yet to use the Dr Lancer The Method Polish and Nuxe Nuxellence Detox which is an anti-aging cream to apply in the evenings before night cream, but because I love their hand cream and still have a previous sample sat on my desk at work, I’m sure I’ll love this too.
Did any of you get this month’s box and/or have tried any of the featured products? I’m really looking forward to next month’s box as it’s Valentine’s themed so be sure to come back and check it out.
Until next time x
