If you’re a beauty addict like me then discovering new brands and products is something you enjoy doing and beauty boxes are a wonderful way of getting a selection of products directly to your door. I like that you receive products you wouldn’t normally try and also that you’re introduced to brands you have never heard of. Well there is a new Beauty Subscription Box on the scene called Look Incredible* and they promise you will receive 5 FULL sized products in each box.
‘Why we are different from other beauty box’s because our promise is that we will deliver you a minimum of 5 full size products meaning no tester , no travel size we deliver the Real deal full size product you would except when you buy from the high street so you can really test the product out’ Our beauty box can contain diverse range of skin care , hair care to makeup its a total surprise till you get your very own.
The January Box got me pretty excited when I opened the lid and saw what products were inside!
BareMinerals Redness Remedy £27
Reduce facial redness on contact and over time with this incredibly effective soothing treatment. It minimises the appearance of imperfections and imparts luminosity for a healthy-looking, more even-toned complexion. Appropriate for all skin types. Includes antibacterial-treated Soothing Compress Brush. I was excited to see not one but two bareMinerals products in this months box. I am excited that both of these products are new to me and I do suffer from redness in my cheeks so I have my fingers crossed that this helps reduce that. I love the double ended brush that you get in this kit too, you can never own too many makeup brushes.
BareMinerals Flawless Lash Mascara £17
This is a jet black mascara with a tapered plastic bristle wand, it promises to lengthen, darken and give a lifted look, separating each individual lash for precision definition. I love trying new mascaras and I’m always on the hunt for that perfect one. I do like my lashes to look long and separated so this could be my perfect mascara, lets hope so.
YSL Lip Twins £24.99
I had never heard of this product before but was quite excited to see a YSL product in a beauty box. This is a duo of lip colours that comes in sleek gold YSL packaging. This product is discontinued and it seems that it is not complete as when these Lip Twins were sold they came with a lip brush and unfortunately the product you receive in your box doesn’t come boxed or with the lip brush. I like the idea of trying a YSL lipstick but these seem a little gimmicky and I can see why they were discontinued. Also for the 1.7g of product you get I would never pay over £20 for that! After my initial excitement I was a little disappointed with the quality and the fact the product is incomplete.
Essie Stee-ling The Scene £8.50
This is a gorgeous silver pewter shade with a metallic finish and being someone that only owns 2 other Essie polishes I was very excited to see this in the box. Although when searching for a little more information about which collection the polish was from I noticed that it was released as part of the Essie Winter 2007 Collection. That seems a little odd to me although, the product is still 100% ok and has no separation. I do love the colour and I’m looking forward to using it.
Laura Geller Baked ImPRESSions Blush £10
Laura Geller Baked Impressions Blush in Mocha Mauve. A baked and pressed powder in an ultra-smooth formula, complete with a mirror in the lid. I have never tried anything from Laura Geller but this is a pretty blush and a shade that I wouldn’t have picked out for myself. Its a nice pinky plum shade and I think its really pretty. Always good to have a new blush to try out. Let me know if this is a brand you have heard of & if you have any product recommendations. I was surprised that this blush was only £10 because the quality and pigmentation is so good, I would pay that in a heartbeat.
The Look Incredible Beauty Box is a monthly subscription & for £18.99 you will receive 5 Full Sized products each month. I think a couple products in this months box were a little underwhelming but on the whole I am impressed. I am looking forward to using the bareMinerals products and the Laura Geller Blush is gorgeous too. The contents of the January Box is over £87. I just wish the YSL product was current because if I loved it how would I purchase more if the product has been discontinued and also how old is the product in the box. If that was all sorted then this box would have been 10/10 for me.
It is nice to a new subscription box on the scene and one that won’t include small samples and sachets. I am excited to see what is in next months box if their previous months are anything to go by its going to be a good one. Let me know if you have used any of the products in this box & if you are tempted to sign up to this service.
