LFBB August 2017

Here’s another unboxing for you. This one had me wondering about what happened this month and, when I went to do the maths… I got even more suspicious… I talked about it on my Insta Stories, also.

LFBB July 17 . unboxing

It’s late, but it’s here: the unboxing of this month’s Beauty Box and my review on last month’s products. Also, because this is the last month of the subscription, my overview of this service.

All the prices mentioned are based off of (whenever possible) the Look Fantastic website.

Moroccanoil Hydrating Styling Cream
75 ml — 11,60€

Hot Makeup Large Bronzer
This was a b*tch to find. This is a Danish brand that seems to be a subsidiary of the Polish brand Revers Cosmetics, since the Revers Cosmetics logo is all over the label.
I couldn’t find a reliable E.U. retailer for the life of me, nor do they have this product or similar in stock right now. So, based on the prices of the website (which are quite low, Catrice style), I’m going on a hunch and say this bronzer will cost 8€ or under.

Cowshed Chamomile Refreshing Toner (with spritz cap only on the full size ;))
250 ml — 21,47€
50 ml sample — 4,30€

Mimitika Face Sunscreen SPF 50
50 ml — 16,95€
10 ml sample — 3,39€

Regenerate Toothpaste
75 ml — 11,95€
14 ml sample — 2,23€

Jelly Pong Pong Bare Necessities Highlighting Pencil
Full Size — 17,95€

Imedeen Advanced Beauty Shot
1 bottle — 3,94€

Overall Value:
~51,40€

all about my favourites to get (part of) that golden glow I used to have as a kid, without sitting in the sun. because ain’t nobody got time fo’ that!

Vita Liberata pHenomenal Self-Tanning Mousse — the most affordable I found was at Beauty Bay, but Cult Beauty carries more shades, like Feelunique and Look Fantastic — so it’s a matter of looking out for promotions.

La Roche-Posay Autohelios can be found on Look Fantastic and Feelunique

James Reed H2O Tan Mist can be found also on Look Fantastic and Feelunique

Clarins Radiance Plus Golden Glow Booster is widely available in local stores, and you can also find it on Feelunique.

The Ordinary Serum Foundation | Up Close and Poresonal

This is nothing less than a phenomenon. Due to its very low price (under 7 €) and to the amazing array of colours, the foundations from The Ordinary have been constantly sold out. If you want one, you really have to want it and wait for quite a while…

The Ordinary foundations come in two finishes: Serum (Lower coverage, dewier finish) and Coverage (higher coverage and demi-matte finish). They have no frills nor high claims, and it’s almost a relief to know that. It’s just a foundation.
I managed to get my hands on the Serum version, and that’s what I’m going to talk to you about.

I’ve never done one of these before… How did I go?

Aside from the spinach and lipstick on my teeth, I mean.

oh, you have to go and watch again because you couldn’t stop staring? ok, I’ll wait…
I’ll just leave you here a list of the products mentioned.

Hourglass Foundation Stick — Up Close and Poresonal

I finally got my hands on it, so here comes the in-depth review!

If you’re in the U.S. and Canada (or in a country that is enabled to shop from those online stores), Sephora carries this foundation.
If you’re in the E.U., it depends if there’s an Hourglass counter on your local beauty store. I’ve found that you can order online through SpaceNK.

SPF Mists: Bioderma vs La Roche-Posay

magic in a bottle, a can that mists you with an invisible shield that protects you from the harmful rays of sun, that can be easily reapplied throughout the day without disturbing your makeup. but which one to go for?
I’ve tried them both. here are my thoughts.

UPDATE: My sister has atopic skin and had an allergic reaction to the La Roche Posay mist. So if you’re very sensitive, I would stay away from this one, sadly. 

Bioderma Hydrabio Moisturising anti-UV mist, SPF 30

La Roche-Posay Anthelios Invisible Face Mist SPF 50
