Lookfantastic 1st Birthday Beauty Box

To celebrate their first birthday, LookFantastic put together a special Birthday edition Beauty Box* to spoil all of us beauty junkies with an array of fantastic products. As someone who was lucky enough to receive one of these boxes, I couldn't wait to dive straight in and get my hands on all the wonderful goodies to pamper myself and try out some new brands. Now I've had a while to use the different products I'm excited to share my thoughts with you and rave about a couple of the things I've fallen in love with!

bliss Fabulous Foaming Face Wash
This travel size 2-in-1 face wash is such a dream to use! The gel is perfect for cleansing the skin and removing remnants of makeup in the evening, as well as freshening up the complexion with its soft exfoliator beads. The light scent almost reminds me of bubblegum so I really look forward to using it and it leaves my skin feeling balanced, soothed and refreshed - a great all rounder!

Professional Sebastian Penetraitt Shampoo and Conditioner
This Penetraitt shampoo and conditioner set is absolutely perfect for hair like mine that's a bit on the dry and damaged side. If endless blow drying, straightening and occasional colouring has left your hair a little dead as well then these products will definitely be of benefit to you! My mane feels lovely and silky soft after use as well as smelling wonderful too. And of course, both the shampoo and conditioner are suitable for chemically treated and coloured hair.

Phyto Phytokeratine Exceptional Cream
This is my favourite product out of the whole box - it's literally like waving a magic wand over my hair! It completely transforms it, taking away all the frizz and leaving it feeling a million times healthier, kind of like how it feels when you've just had it cut. I use a couple of pumps on my wet hair before I blow dry it and then a little to smooth away the flyaways and ends after I've straightened or used the tongs on it. Couldn't recommend this product enough!

Caudalie Vinosource
This Caudalie moisturising duo is so perfect for using on freshly cleansed skin! You use the serum first followed by the sorbet to leave the skin deeply moisturised as well as soothed. The products work differently from regular moisturisers by restoring the water reserves of the skin to leave it extra hydrated and super comfortable, so you don't get that tight dry feeling you sometimes get when products aren't concentrated enough. I absolutely loooove using these because they smell so light and fresh and they absorb without leaving a greasy film.

Codage Scrubbing Cream
I absolutely adore this exfoliator! Hands down one of the best I've ever used. Firstly the smell is so gentle and sweet so I love it just for that reason but more importantly it leaves my skin feeling incredibly renewed (without being rough or overly-abrasive in the slightest). It's really simple to use, you just squeeze out a little bit and work it into your dry skin before adding a tad of water and rinsing it off. The product is made from organic rice particles, making it perfect for sensitive skin too!

Tankworx Tan Maintainer
The final item in the 1st birthday beauty box is Tanworx tan maintainer. This moisturiser contains carrot, hyaluronic acid, coconut oil and seaweed to help prolong the life of a summer tan long after summer is over! I haven't got round to using this yet (just because I don't actually have a tan to maintain!) but I'm going to save it for whenever I next go away!

So that's the contents of the 1st birthday edition Lookfantastic beauty box! I totally fell in love with all of these high quality products and can't wait to see what goodies are in the next box of treats! What do you think of this range of products? Do they sound like the kind of things you enjoy using? Let me know in the comments! Oh and if you want to treat yourself to the latest box visit to get one ordered straight to your door!
