#LFSUMMERLOVIN look fantastic July Box

I've been wanting to subscribe to some sort of 'beauty box' for a while now but I just couldn't decide which one to go for. However, whenever I scroll through my Instagram page I always see the
 lookfantastic box somewhere on my feed popping' up and so I decided to take the plunge and sign up to the 3month subscription which is around £13 per month. 

If you're unfamiliar with these boxes then i'll briefly give you an overview of what you get and sign up for. There are a few different subscription offers from the one off box purchase, to the 3, 6 and 12 month subscriptions (which inevitably save you a little bit of money)

As I signed up for the 3 month subscription to begin with, with each box you get the following; 

- A lookfantastic themed box with a minimum of six products 
- A copy of Elle magazine 
- A copy of their own Beauty Box magazine 

You can find out more and subscribe here

As I only subscribed last week I was able to get the July #LFSUMMERLOVIN themed box and then I will also be shortly receiving Augusts #LFBestOfBritish box which I can't wait for. 

In my first box I received the cutest six products; 

- Benefit Cosmetics Goof Proof pencil in shade 6 
- NUXE multi purpose dry oil for the face, body and hair 
- this works 'in transit camera close up' mask, moisturiser and primer in one 
- Kebelo Silk anti frizz cream 
- bellapierre cosmetics 'pink' cheek and lip stain
-  MiTi x3 bobbles

A Quick Product Breakdown and Review 

The Benefit Cosmetics Goof Proof pencil I actually like, I have had this product since it was launched and has become my go to day brow pencil. It hasn't quite won me over from the Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Definer, but it is a very good alternative and I would recommend it.

The NUXE multi purpose dry oil is a beautiful little product, I have been using this for the last few days as an extra little glow to my arms and face, especially since being back from holiday and I still have a 'tan' left. 

With the this works 'in transit camera close up' mask, moisturiser and primer I found that the product was a thick consistency and although it applied softly to the skin I didn't find it very good on my oily complexion. So for those with oilier skin I wouldn't recommend this as it made me extra shiny which isn't the look I want to achieve, however if you have dry skin this could be a great product. 

I tried the Kebelo Silk anti frizz cream and I found the product to be very soft and easy to apply, however with myself having thin hair it just made it look greasy so this probably isn't something I would be using again.

For the bellapierre cosmetics pink cheek and lip stain, I have to be honest I haven't used this yet and out of the products this is my least favourite as sadly pink just isn't my colour. However, the colour is pretty and if pink is your thing, then it would be nice on as it's silky smooth to touch and the colour isn't too shocking, more a pale pink.

Finally the MiTi bobbles, well really they speak for themselves. I use this type of bobble all the time I find it so much easier to do my hair with these and they are very supportive, even with my thin hair. Although they do occasionally get caught in my hair, I just don't know how it happens,  they are the best type of bobble to use by a mile and I would highly recommend these. 

Do you receive this beauty box ? Or recommend any others ?
