Look Incredible Deluxe Box, August 2016.

After seeing last month's deluxe box, I knew I had to upgrade from the standard to the deluxe box. After receiving August's, I'm so glad I made the jump! The only downside was that some people got their boxes before mine had even been despatched and I know some other had the same problem. I saw what was in the box before I even had it and it takes away the element of surprise, which I really enjoy. Maybe something for Look Incredible to take on board there.

The box has definitely improved too, coming embossed with the logo instead of just having a sticker with it on. It comes tied up with a ribbon and has the bow you can see in the photo above. Very cute, thumbs up from me.

At £35 including postage, the deluxe box is £13.51 more than the standard box but oh so worth it.

Elemis Pro-Collagen Hydra-Gel Eye  Masks x2 (RRP £16.50)
I've had these in a previous beauty box but I really enjoyed using them so I'm happy to have some more. They feel lovely on the delicate undereye area, very cooling and hydrating. Anything that is going to help with my fine lines is a go to!

Giorgio Armani Waterproof Eye Pencil in Copper (RRP £22)
It's nice to see another Armani product in this month's box and this eye pencil is a gorgeous colour but I don't see this as something I'll be using. It has definite staying power thanks to the water resistant formula, I really had to work to get the swatch I did on my hand off. I won't be keeping this as it seems a waste when I know I wouldn't reach for it. I'll be selling it on my depop so it goes to  a better home. (@dannilaura)

Benefit Hervana Ultra Plush Lip Gloss (RRP £14.50)
I'm so excited to have this as I don't own any full size Benefit products. I love the colour of this gloss and it doesn't feel overly sticky.

Clinique Chubby Stick Cheek Colour Balm in Roly Poly Rosy (RRP £19)
I'm looking forward to trying this as I don't own any other blushes in this formula, I have a couple of stick highlighters but no cheek colours. I've never even used a cream blush before so this should be interesting! The colour looks quite dark until it's blended out, so the idea of trying this on my face scared me at first but I'm going to give it a go.

Too Faced La Creme Colour Drenched Lip Cream in Teddy Berry (RRP £18)
Without a doubt my favourite thing in the box! I already own one of these in the shade Mean Girls so I already knew that I liked the formula. The colour is beautiful, Too Faced describe it as a dusty rose and I'd say that description is pretty spot on. It went on my lips the day I got the box, I'm very very happy with this!

Clockwise from top: Eye pencil in Copper, Benefit Hervana Gloss, Too Faced Teddy Berry, Roly Poly Rosy blended out.

Little Known Box, July 2016.

This is my last box from Little Known Box. I signed up for the 3 month subscription and decided against renewing. I have nothing against the box itself, I've enjoyed discovering all these brands thanks to this box but it just doesn't excite me as much as other boxes I've tried.

Soap N Skin Soothe & Enrich Intense Body Butter Travel Size (RRP £6)
This feels so luxurious with a whipped texture. This will be coming with me on holiday as it's a perfect size for my toiletry bag! I'm not too keen on the scent but it will be an absolute saviour for my dry skin so it's something I'll be able to look past.

Odylique Conditioning Volumising Mascara (RRP £17.50)
This mascara is 100% natural and something I look forward to trying. The brush looks nice and big so I have high hopes for it.

Balance Me Radiance Face Mask travel size (RRP £12)
I already own a travel size of this that I havent got round to using but I'm not going to complain about having another! Another product that will be going in my holiday toiletry bag especially now I have one to keep at home too.

Zerreau Apple Towel Off Shampoo Foam travel size (RRP £3.99)
This is the product I'm most excited about. My hair is getting fairly long, so washing and drying it feels like such a chore. Dry shampoo is such a saviour for me but I read an article online in the last month or so saying that using it frequently can lead to baldness... Not what I wanted to read! So I hope this waterless shampoo foam works wonders. It smells delicious, so it's got that going for it before I've even tried it. If it works, I can see this becoming a favourite of mine.

HJ Manicure nail polishes in Lavender & Strawberry Daiquiri (RRP £9.50 each)
I already own a HJ Manicure polish in Lavender so this one will be going on depop.(dannilaura if anyone is interested.) I love the shade of the red one, the name is so cute. The fact that LKB included two polishes when they could of just put in one is very generous.

Lastly as a bonus product we have these two sample sachets. One is an argan oil and the other is a perfume made by the same company. I won't be getting any use out of these but they are a nice little extra to the box.
