Lookfantastic November Beauty Box Contents

November brought a new Lookfantastic beauty box* and I am loving the move towards Christmas/ Just look at those snowflakes! I'm a big fan of the silver even if it is really hard to photograph- trust me when I say this looks so much better in person. The snowflakes are made of beauty products and it is adorable.

As for the contents? This month has another fab mix of haircare, skincare and makeup that I'm really happy with.

MONU Recovery Balm
This is perfect for winter-ravaged skin (a life saver when I went to Iceland last week). It isn't too heavy but really deeply nourishes. I've been popping it on my cuticles at night too, which has been fab with this cold snap.

L'Oreal Professionnel Mythic Oil
I love a hair oil and this sample is such a treat. It has a glass bottle that feels really luxe and I like the extra hydration and shine it gives my hair.

Sebastian Professional Volupt Spray 
Not a product that I get to use very often but it is always fun to try- I like giving my hair a spritz of this when I straighten it, to stop my roots getting flat. I can see someone else finding this a total essential,

Look Good Feel Better Shader Brush
I love Look Good Feel Better brushes. They feel like Real Techniques in terms of quality, the price is fab and they have a great cause too. This is a gorgeous soft fluffy brush, perfect for blending shadows.

Model Co Blush
I'm always happy to see a bit of makeup in Beauty Box; it is my soft spot, always! This is surprisingly lovely with a touch of golden shimmer that reminds me a LOT of NARS Orgasm. It has the same magical flattering glow on the skin.

Bloom And Blossom Revitalising Foot And Leg Spray
This is probably the product I'm least fussed about. I'm not sure quite when I would use it, even though it smells lovely. I'll probably pass this on to someone else but the other products make up for it.

I also loved finding a bonus product in this month's box- a ridiculously sparkly nail file! It is in my bag and it really cheers me up to see all the glitter. Its the little things.

Style // Pink Pumps

Casual Weekend Style

Weekends. At the moment, they seem a little like a miracle every time they come around! Things are busy and it means when those 2 precious days arrive, I barely know what to do with myself. Become a duvet slug and not leave the flat? Dress up and go somewhere fancy? Pull on something comfortable and do all those practical things around town I've not managed for months? What about heading out for a walk and some exercise? There is never enough time for all the things I want to do! 

This is one of those perfect weekend outfits for me. A loose top for hiding food babies, plain black erry'thang and trainers in my new favourite shade of blush pink. Now maybe next weekend I'll manage that dressing up thing...

The #LFPamper Beauty Box

This month's Lookfantastic Beauty Box might be my favourite ever. Themed with everything you need for a little pamper session, it is a lovely edition with a great mix of skincare, bodycare, makeup and haircare from some amazing brands. The soft pink packaging is just beautiful too- totally up my street. 

What's Inside

The #LFPamper Box arrived just on time to coincide with my first Autumn cold so I'm appreciating the treats even more, but no matter how in need of a pamper you are, the contents are a real treat. I really think this is the best mix of products Lookfantastic have ever had! 

Laura Geller Pout Perfection Waterproof Lipliner. 
I've seen Laura Geller popping up all over the place and this full size lip liner is an amazing treat. It feels really creamy and the colour is a gorgeous deep red- perfect for the season. 

Mio Skincare Liquid Yoga Bath Soak
This stuff is amazing! I want the full size quite badly. Packed with things like eucalyptus and mint, it smells amazing and is so soothing. Long, hot baths with this are what Autumn evenings are made for, I swear. 

Murad Intensive-C Radiance Peel 
I really like Murad products so I'm looking forward to trying this.Who doesn't need a radiance booster in Autumn? I've already given it a good sniff and love the scent too. 

Polaar Lip Balm
This is already a handbag essential for me. It smells great and the texture is just right; rich without being oily, nourishing without being sticky. 

Alterna Caviar Pre Shampoo Treatment
I actually really like hair products like this. I use the Philip Kingsley Elasticizer fairly frequently so I'm intruiged to see how this compares. If it can give my already cold-frazzled hair

Oskia Renaissance Mask. 
This has to be my hero product from the box. It is such a premium brand and this is one of those products I've heard rave reviews about, so I am so glad to finally be able to try it! The adorable little pot has about 2 facemasks worth of product so you can properly try it out too but it smells amazing and leaves the skin looking really soft. 

Have you tried this month's box? What do you think?
