The #LFBEAUTYBOX packaging is Birthday themed this month and I love it!

The September 2018 Look Fantastic Beauty Box theme is Birthday!

This month were celebrating the 4th birthday of our lookfantastic beauty box with our special birthday Edition. You'll discover that we have gifted you six amazing Beauty treats this month that are well worth celebrating! In this magazine we've got all the tips and amazing birthday extras for you to discover from interesting cake recipes to a gift guide for those of you struggling to find the perfect present, and an extra treat exclusively for you! Let's get ready to party!

In every #LFBEAUTYBOX, you will also receive an exclusive Beauty Box magazine, written by their Beauty experts and packed full of insider tips and tricks.

Let's take a quick look inside:

There's now various pages in the Beauty Box magazine that acts as the product card.

What's in the box?

They have descriptions, tips and instructions for how to use the products!

There's a recipe for birthday cake!

An a couple healthier cake recipes as well. 

There's also recipes for "mocktails"! 

This month has a gift guide for men... 

 ... and women. There's lots of great ideas!

First look! I am loving the iridescent confetti.

Mane ‘N Tail Hoofmaker Original Hand & Nail Cream (2oz, $2.26 US)
This fast-absorbing and non-greasy cream targets cracked, dry skin not only on your hands but on your feet and body! When applied to hands, it strengthens and protects nails to leave them strong and healthy. Expect smooth, comfortable and rejuvenated skin all over straight after application!
This hand cream is great! The packaging is tacky and does not do this product justice. This stuff really works! Not only are my hands in the best condition they have ever been in, but my nails are growing at a speed I never thought possible. As a bonus this cream does not leave a greasy feeling and absorbs quickly, perfect for the woman on the go.

Lord & Berry Strobing Highlighter Pencil - Travel Size ($10 US)
Add a subtle glow to your skin with this pink highlighting pencil by Lord & Berry. This is perfect to create a radiant glow in specific areas of your face thanks to the precision tip. It's so multifunctional, you can use this on your cheekbones, brow bones, on your Cupid's bow or whatever else you fancy!
I absolutely love this strobing pencil! It’s easy to use and glides on smooth. I use it every day on the waterline of my lower eyelid and the inside corners. Since using, I have received many comments about how refreshed and bright I look.

Aromatherapy Associates Support Revive Morning Bath & Shower Oil (9 ml, $11.95 US)
Make your bath or shower time even better with this luxurious bath and shower oil by Aroma Therapy Associates. This month you will have either received the lavender and peppermint or revive morning bath and shower oil, both allow you to indulge in a moment of peace and experience the invigorating powers of aromatherapy in the comfort of your own home.
I am not a morning person and this bath oil has been life-changing! When I know I have a long and early day, I apply 1/2 a capful on my torso and start to feel gratitude, positive, and invigorated. It is a perfect morning ritual.. I just wish it wasn’t so pricey!

Philip Kingsley Elasticizer (40ml, $13.60 US)
The elasticsizing factor of this shampoo treatment smooths each strand to incredible silkiness, improves the suppleness of your hair, stretchability, strength and shine whilst leaving it softer, less brittle, beautifully manageable and lustrous.
I loveee this stuff! It is like magic on your hair. It made my hair feel so soft and luxurious with only one use so far. I hope that with more uses, my dry, colour-treated hair will improve even more.

Omorovicza Ultramoor Mud Mask (5 ml, $12.50 US)
Detox, cleanse and revive your skin with this mask that works to purify, energized and define the contours of your face. Using a range of anti-aging benefits, this clay mask expertly hydrates and protects your skin as it works deeply to lift and brighten your complexion.
This is seriously the best mask I've ever used. After 2 uses the acne on my chin has almost 100% vanished and I've been struggling with hormonal acne since my mid 20’s. My skin feels great, my complexion is smoother/brighter, and my clogged pores are gone! The price tag is steep, but it’s because of LF we are able to try luxe skincare brands such as Omorovicza. I also received their facial cream a few boxes back and it too, is amazing!

Eve Lom Cleanser & Muslin Cloth ($24 US)
Regenerate your skin like never before with Eve Lom’s multi-award-winning multi purpose skin cleanser. Suitable for all skin types, this exfoliating cleanser decongests, softens and even removes stubborn waterproof makeup from your skin!
This is a Birthday Box repeat from 2017. This cleanser is a five-benefit formula that decongests, exfoliates, tones, soothes, and deep cleanses to remove impurities and waterproof makeup for a beautiful complexion. It smells amazing with hints of eucalyptus and clove.

BONUS: Swizzels Parma Violets
Parma Violets are have been an iconic British sweet for over 70 years, and their unique violet flavour has divided opinion for just as long.You don’t have to love them, but you do have to try them!
More birthday love - because it’s their birthday they gave us some candy to celebrate!

Each box includes the latest issue of Elle UK Magazine.

Here's a look at next month's box! 

Note from Jill: Don't forget to order your 2018 LookFantastic Advent Calendar! Mine arrived this week. It's huge and heavy! Now I have to wait until December 1st! 

The September Lookfantastic Beauty Box included six products valued at $74.31US plus a magazine and birthday treat! The value is great this month, and there’s a nice variety of new brands and products represented. I love trying all of these UK brands I would not normally try on my own. My favourite items are the Omorovicza Face Mask and the Philip Kingsley Elasticizer. This box costs $19 US per month, including shipping to Canada but I only pay $16 US on the year subscription (which is billed monthly) and only paid $20.50 CDN this month. I personally love that I can pay with PayPal. I highly recommend the Lookfantastic Beauty Box if you’re looking to discover new and upcoming UK beauty brands! Happy Birthday, Lookfantastic!
