So I'm really loving this months Look Fantastic box and not to mention that this box also comes with the latest copy of ELLE magazine, giving me the perfect excuse to pamper myself, reading my favourite magazine and trying out some new beauty products! What a great start to the weekend, aye!? 

Every month I'm always so pleased with the amazing products that Look Fantastic supplies within it's beauty boxes. I may not always post on the blog but a few of my fave products normally appear on my Twitter / Instagram. Within this months box we have a whole variety of goodies...


This is a really fresh and lightweight moisturiser which helps to reduce inflammation and redness, keeping skin nourished and protected. It's also suitable for all skin types and is best used in the face and neck after cleansing, giving your skin a chance to prepare for make up.


I was so excited to see this in the box this month as I've really wanted to try out new make up brushes. This gorgeous brush is designed to blend and buff shadow round the eye area, I haven't yet tried this but am excited to start using it. 


This balm is infused with Shea, Mango and Coconut butter leaving your lips feeling moisturised but also with a pop of colour at the same time. I have used this product before and loved it and am loving the colour I received in my box- '105, Demure Reservee'


This moisturising cream can be used from head to toe and works especially to get rid of dry areas. It has a subtle fragrance and is absorbed into the skin quickly so it doesn't leave you feeling oily. 


This has a really fresh and subtly scent and can be used to gently cleanse and remove make up from the eyes and face. The formula makes it simple for you to wipe away any impurities left on the skin. 


This product has got my name written on it, the amount of times I'm Ill throughout the year or feeling run down. I'm currently suffering with a cold at the moment so looking forward to trying these and seeing if they have any affect. These sachets create a super orange fizzy drink and it is advised for adults to have one of these a day. 


The mask is designed to leave skin feeling nourished and looking healthy. This also works to banish signs of dryness and damage and is suitable for all skin types.  

I'm excited to try out these products properly and any favourites of  mine i'm sure will appear on my Instagram or in another blog post. If you're subscribed to Look Fantastic, what was your favourite product?

If you're not...

Hey Guys,

Hope you've had a great start to the week! I wanted to share with you a new product I have recently been using, the Merumaya Gentle Exfoliating Toner. Before I started blogging I never really had a skincare routine and to be honest I never used to give it much thought but I now realise just how important it is to keep your skin looking and feeling healthy. My skin endures a lot, putting on layers of make up, taking it off again, even sometimes not taking it off again.. oops! I'm often fairly lucky with the appearance of my skin however I do suffer from dry areas and feel I have visible pores, which is why it's important for me to use products like the Gentle Exfoliating Toner to really help my skin to look and be at its best...  

The Gentle Exfoliating Toner has a really fresh scent, which also leaves your skin feeling clean and revived. I have used this both morning and night and find it really helps to ensure, after cleansing, that your skin is completely clear from any impurities. Although its sometimes hard to see the benefits straight away from toners, I feel personally I have noticed a difference in the way in which my make up sits on my skin, having reduced the size of the pores on my skin. Also I have found that my darker areas on my skin, such as under the eye area, to appear as dark.

 Another great thing is that there's no complicated routine involved, which can sometimes put me off certain products. It really is an easy product to incorporate as part of your skincare routine and literally takes under a minute to sweep a cotton pad all over the face and neck with the toner, literally its as simple as that and your skin will reward you for it! I have really enjoyed using this product so far and will continue to do so as a luxury treat for my skin!

Have you tried any Merumaya products?

Lots of Love
