It is such a brilliant edit of products. The Purity Cleanser is actually America’s No 1 facial cleanser. In fact, the brand is huge there and I discovered it on trips to the US way before I saw it in the UK.
I tried the Pore Extractor Mask (what a name) for the first time last night. It’s brilliant and you get a full size of it. It’s a white clay mask that literally sucks out the impurities as it dries and then emulsifies into a very gentle exfoliant before you rinse it away. It literally left my skin gleaming! Apparently two uses will vastly reduce blackheads and give you ‘virtually blackhead free skin’.
It’s a lovely creamy texture and non-drying. The Salicylic Acid in it will be great if you have problem skin.
The Original Vitamin C
The Turbo Booster Vitamin C Powder in the Lookfantastic X Philosophy box is a new discovery for me but apparently it has been around for twenty years!! It was clearly one of the earliest Vit C products and is a powder that remains fresh in the jar for two years.
You simply pop a spatula into your favourite moisturiser, blend it together and apply to the skin. You might get a little tingle, but it’s extremely brightening and will deliver brilliant anti-oxidant protection. I love that you can mix it with any serum or moisturiser you already have, and it gives them a major brightening and antioxidant boost.
Apparently it’s also amazing for an itchy, flaky scalp if you mix it into your shampoo! I’m def doing that!
Renewed Hope in a Jar is a brilliant lightweight moisturiser that contains three different AHAs to gently exfoliate the skin. You can mix in your Vit C powder and it makes an excellent base for makeup.
The eye cream in the box is a brilliant new addition to my collection. It has a gorgeous velvety texture that softly fills lines and instantly improves the appearance of the eye area. As well as lines, it works on dark circles and puffiness using a high performance retinoid cream.
Finally, and especially for Christmas, the Lookfantastic X Philosophy Beauty Box contains the absolutely incredible Gingerbread Man Body Souffle. It smells and feels amazing and is the perfect antidote to winter skin. It’s only around at Christmas time, so it makes the box really special.
The Lookfantastic X Philosophy Limited Edition Beauty Box is available now for £49 at Look Fantastic* with free delivery. The value is £165, and remember if you are are a Look Fantastic Beauty Box subscriber you can get it for £44.
