Kia ora! (This means hello in Maori, by the way) It’s been ages since I got down to writing a blog post – partly because I’ve been so busy settling down in New Zealand, but mostly because I’ve been too lazy hibernating in this cold.
Since I finally got my lazy ass down to writing a nice post, you know this is something worth reading about (unlike my new veggie garden which I’m so excited about, and my adventures of slug-hunting.. which I will spare you).
*Ahem* ANYWAY, the main purpose of this post was to share with y’all about some cool beauty products which I’ve been testing out from Lookfantastic’s beauty boxes.
To be honest, I’m not someone who keeps up-to-date with the latest beauty trends, just because I’m such a sucker for advertising and would totally spend all my money buying new products and not finishing them (because I’d get into buying new ones), so Lookfantastic was PERFECT for me!
They have subscription beauty boxes which cost $27 a month (a super good deal) with at least 6 branded products worth over $140!
The boxes even come with magazines as well as introductions to the products – super helpful. I love how it lets me explore new quality products without over-splurging and having to think too much. If you are a beauty-junkie, or a try-a-holic (like me) – this is definitely A MUST to check out!
If you are looking for specific products, their site is also a good place to check as they have such a huge variety of brands at very competitive prices… plus free international delivery – score!
To convince you further, here’s a few awesome products that I’ve tried through the beauty boxes and absolutely loved:
#1. Hair: Christophe Robin Cleansing Volumizing Paste
The Christophe Robin Cleansing Volumizing Paste with Pure Rassoul Clay and Rose Extracts promises to deep cleanse and boost the volume of your hair, letting you feel like you just walked out of a salon.
This is exactly what I needed because I’m guilty of bleaching my hair multiple times, and I’m always conscious about it looking flat and lifeless.
The paste itself was really easy to use – after applying it on, it started to bubble a little while you were supposed to massage it into your scalp. To see if there was any effect, I blew dry my hair and HEYYYY it felt super good! My hair felt a lot lighter and bouncier and I was flipping it around just for fun. YAY to this!
#2. Face: Madara SOS Hydra Moisture + Radiance Mask
The product smelled reallllly good and was very easy to apply. You can choose to leave it in or wipe off after 20 minutes, so I chose to leave it in overnight as my skin was suffering from the cold weather and breaking out noticeably. I love how quickly it absorbs into the skin and I did notice the extra glow when I woke up! After a few days, my skin was feeling consistently more hydrated, so I’m definitely going to keep using this regularly. Definitely recommended for those who have dry skin or planning a travel adventure!
#3. Face: Glamglow Supermud Mask
This mask is well-known for a reason – IT’S SO GOOD. I’ve actually used this many times before, and although it’s pricey, it works. The mask draws out dirt and toxins (and you can actually see oil spots / dirt when the mask dries up ughh) and your skin just feels so darn good after. Totally worth the money guys!!
Tip: I’ve actually compared prices for this product, and LookFantastic has one of the lowest prices in addition to free international delivery.
#4. Face: Glov On-The-Go Hydro Cleanser
I’ve raved about this on IG because it was so shockingly good! It’s a microfiber cloth which removes makeup without needing any makeup remover. I’ve been using it for a few weeks now and I’m still really impressed by it. It’s reusable (just have to wash it with mild soap) and my skin feels quite clean after using it.
It’s perfect for people who travel often (total game-changer – no more worries about forgetting to pack your makeup remover!) and even for ladies who have lash extensions, as it really helps to clean around your eyes without having to get your lashes wet.
#5. Scrub Love – Hydrating Coconut Oil Body Scrub
I use this scrub for my body as well as my face and I love the way my skin feels glowy and clean after it, PLUS it smells so darn good. Thumbs up for a scrub which leaves you feeling all clean and hydrated after. If you aren’t using a scrub regularly, this is something you should definitely get into – you’ll thank me for it later! (free coffee welcomed, guys!)
