This is my very first Cohorted Beauty box* and I have to say I’m quite impressed, covering mainly make-up and skincare there were also some body treats and couple of lifestyle bits for Christmas. They’ve showcased some fab brands this month and I’m really delighted with what they’ve selected, it’s such a good all rounder too. All full sized products worth £80 plus free delivery for only £35 per box, pretty good deal if you ask me.

The December edition showcases the brands Clarins, The English Soap Company, Plum & Ashby and Lucy Annabella, all of which were beautifully presented inside their signature black box secured with an organza ribbon giving it a very luxurious look and feel. There were also special discount codes for Missguided and Zalando.

Here’s what’s included:

1 The English Soap Company / Winter Village Large Bath Soap £8 – Made from pure vegetable oils and shea butter this soap smells so natural, really looking forward to use it. I love the festive box it comes wrapped in, it looks so Christmassy 🙂

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

2 Clarins Mineral Mono Eyeshadow £17.50 – I’ve never tried any of their eyeshadows before. The packaging is really luxury and eyeshadow itself quite smooth, lovely smokey plum shade, I used it to create a simple smokey eye and I loved the result, it’s also much more pigmented when used wet.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAOLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

3 Plum & Ashby / Lavender Bath Essence £18 – I haven’t tried this yet but it smells so good and I love the glass bottle it comes in, feels expensive and luxury.

4 Lucy Annabella Christmas Candle x 2 £17 each – These are absolutely beautiful, so pretty and smell amazing, very festive!

For my first box I have to say it was a pretty good line up 🙂 I look forward to see what’s gonna be in next month box as I know they have some amazing brands including Bobbi Brown, Nars, Too Faced, Chanel, Bare Minerals, YSL etc. So it’s definitely a thumbs up from me!

Good Morning loves and Happy Monday! I hope you all had a fabulous weekend.

This morning I have a really special beauty box to share with you – the LookFantastic & Jurlique box #LFxJurlique* Absolutely packed with some amazing skincare treats this box is worth over £85 but retails for £40 which is such a bargain! It includes some of Jurlique’s best selling products and some of my personal favourites too, including the Rosewater Balancing Mist, which I recently spoke about in a skincare post here.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Jurlique is one of my favourite skincare brands so I was really exited to find out about their collaboration with LookFantastic. Unfortunately all the boxes have now sold out but I still wanted to share the content with you as you can purchase any of the products individually. So this is what’s included;

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

  • Rose Moisture Plus Moisturising Cleanser 100ml (Full Size)
  • Rose Moisture Plus Restoring Serum 30ml (Full Size)
  • Rosewater Balancing Mist 30ml (Deluxe Sample)
  • Moisture Replenishing Day Cream 15ml (Deluxe Sample)
  • Rose Hand Cream 15ml (Deluxe Sample)
  • Jurlique Drawstring Bag

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Such a lovely selection of products that would make a really nice gift for yourself or any skincare lover. I’ve already tried most of these products and I have to say they are just so lovely. I love anything Rose scented and these products re just so luxurious and beautiful. The Rose Hand Cream is such a treat for my dry hands, it’s very hydrating and smells divine, I have already used up the little sample so I will definitely need to purchase the full size. Jurlique are now available at Debenhams Oxford Street, so I may just have to pay them a visit this week 🙂

As I mentioned earlier I absolutely love the Rosewater Balancing Mist, it’s such a luxury product, I use it twice a day morning and night to refresh my complexion, it also works over makeup, it smells amazing and makes my skin look beautifully hydrated! I already have a full size of it, but a deluxe sample will come in really handy to pop in my handbag to use on the go.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Another product I’m really enjoying at the moment is the Rose Moisture Plus Moisturising Cleanser. It has such a lovely consistency, it’s very gentle and does not irritate my skin at all. I have combination skin and I find that this cleanser does such a great job on cleansing my skin but without drying it. My face looks so fresh and radiant in the morning and appears more balanced, so I get less shiny/oily throughout the day. I’m yet to try the Moisture Replenishing Day Cream and the Daily Moisture Balancing Serum but I like to take my time with my moisturisers/serums and give myself good few weeks to test them out before sharing my review.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAOLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

So yeah, I’d highly recommend Jurlique if you are looking to treat yourself to some new skincare. They have so many lovely products, they are organic and natural so great for people with sensitive skin like myself. Have a look online here, on LookFantastic.com or just pop into Debenhams Oxford Street and check out Jurlique’s beautiful new counter 🙂

I hope you are all having an amazing day! Victoria xo

OPI Nail Polish in Big Apple (full size) – I was so excited to see one of my favourite nail polish brands inside this month’s box. OPI Big Apple is an absolutely stunning red colour, it’s a classic shade that everyone should have in their collection. It’s opaque, goes on really smooth and lasts for days without chipping.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Pixi Beauty Sleep Cream (full size) – As soon as I saw their signature green packaging, I knew it was Pixi! I have heard so much about Pixi’s products but I really have not tried much from the brand. This night cream is a rich nourishing treatment featuring a blend of natural mango butter, lavender, lemon, and bergamot oils. It feels so lovely on the skin and smells amazing!

Pixi Lengthy Fiber Mascara (full size) – Another product I received from Pixi is their fiber mascara, I must admit I’m not a fan of fiber mascaras as they can be quite messy but this one is actually quite good, I only tried it once but it did give me length and volume and made my lashes pretty fluttery 🙂

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA        Caudalie Glycolic Peel (deluxe sample) – This is a lovely mask that contains Glycolic Acid which works really well for smoothing out the skin and clearing and brightening the complexion. Just leave it on for 10 mins and rinse off. My face always looks fresh and radiant after using it.

Caudalie Moisturising Sorbet (deluxe sample) – I really like this light face moisturiser. I enjoy using it as the hydrating, gel-like formula is light and non-greasy which is ideal for the Summer. It smells so so good!

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Yes to Carrots Nourishing Gentle Cleansing Wipes – it’s festival/holiday season, so face wipes become a beauty essential. They’re affordable, convenient, and have multi-uses when you’re away from home. I love the Yes to Carrots range, they are 96% natural, and have good ingredients to help cleanse, smooth and remove makeup. They are also free from parabens and SLS.
