Look Fantastic have released the perfect Limited Edition Beauty Box for skincare addicts, those who want to ‘up’ their skincare routine and skincare beginners. Released today is the Look Fantastic x The INKEY List Limited Edition Beauty Box and even better, you can choose from two boxes depending on your skin type!
Each box contains six effective skincare products which can be used together to create a fab skincare routine. One box is focussed on oily skin and the other for those of us wanting to look after ageing skin (and prevent/reduce fine lines and wrinkles!).
Inside they’ve also included a brand focussed magazine which is filled with content to help you lean more about your skin type and how these products should be included in your skincare routine. So even if you aren’t sure exactly how to use these products right now, you will do when you receive the box.
Each box is worth over £58 but are on sale for only £35… and if you’re already a Look Fantastic Beauty Box subscriber, you’ll get a further discount of £5 using code INKEYXBB. If you’re not yet a subscriber you can get the box at the lower price of £30 when you add a 3, 6 or 12 month subscription to the basket at the same time and use code INKEYLOUNGE.
I’ve received the Anti-Ageing Edition (you know, I need to start looking after my skin now I’m late 20’s and preventing fine lines and wrinkles!) and here’s what is inside:
1. Oat Cleansing Balm (150ml)
A gentle cleanser suitable for even sensitive skin. It cleanses the skin without stripping it and leaves it silky smooth. Rich in antioxidants, it contains colloidal oatmeal and oat kernel oil to not only deeply hydrate the skin, but also help improve the appearance of pores and reduce blackheads.
Balm cleansers are also great for removing makeup.
2. Hyaluronic Acid Serum (30ml)
The first serum in the box is the Hyaluronic Acid serum. If you’ve used hyaluronic acid before then no doubt you’ll be pleased to see this included in the box. If you’re new to hyaluronic acid, this works to plump skin and keep it hydrated. Hyaluronic Acid is a humectant which means it attracts water and binds to moisture. It can attract up to 1000 times its weight in water! The Hyaluronic acid in this serum is also a variety of different molecular weights which means it can penetrate different layers of the skin.
You apply this morning and night after cleansing and exfoliating, before other serums and moisturisers.
3. Retinol Serum (30ml)
Retinol is the most popular and probably most effective anti-ageing ingredient out there right now. It’s known for stimulating collagen production in the skin and reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Overall the Retinol Serum makes skin look brighter, smoother and works to minimise irritation.
When using retinol it’s really important to use a sunscreen the next day as it makes skin more sensitive to sunlight due to the renewal process.
4. Retinol Eye Cream (15ml)
Similar to the Retinol Serum, but specifically for the eye area. It’s a rich but lightweight cream which works to smooth, brighten and plump the eye area. Apply a small amount around the eye ares using your ring finger at night.
Don’t forget to apply sunscreen the following day!
5. Collagen Booster (30ml)
As we age, the collagen in our skin declines… so the firmness and elasticity slowly becomes less and less. This is where the Collagen Booster comes in. This contains a peptide which mimics the effect of collagen to keep the skin looking plump and smooth. Plus it also stimulates the production of collagen in our skin too.
You apply a small amount morning and night before serums and moisturisers.
6. Peptide Moisturiser (15ml)
And the skincare routine wouldn’t be complete without a moisturiser… the Peptide moisturiser is lightweight and fast absorbing and provides intense hydration to the skin. It works to promote cell renewal and encourages increased collagen production to restore elasticity and firmness.
This can be used both morning and night.
If your skin type is more oily, the Oily Skin Edition will likely be more suitable for you. Inside the oily skin box you receive:
- Salicylic Acid Cleanser (150ml) worth £10.99
- Hyaluronic Acid Serum (30ml) worth £5.99
- Niacinamide (30ml) worth £6.99
- Caffeine Eye Cream (15ml) worth £8.99
- Multi-Biotic Moisturiser (30ml) worth £12.99
- C-50 Blemish Night Treatment (30ml) worth £12.99
