Look Incredible Deluxe Box, July 2017.

Look Incredible is my favourite company when it comes to beauty box subscriptions. They offer a standard box at £25 and a deluxe box at £35. I've been having the deluxe box for about a year now and I'm still loving it. All the products are full size, so there's no samples here!

BareMinerals Blemish Remedy Mattifying Prep Gel (RRP £22)
I really like the fact that I haven't had to buy any primers in the last year as this subscription has kept me nicely stocked up. This is a nice primer but I wouldn't say it's one of my favourites I've tried.

UTan & Tone Coconut Tanning Water (RRP £17.99)
I'm going to be honest here, self tanning scares the crap out of me. I'm very pale and the few times I've tried to use gradual tanners haven't turned out the best so the idea of using tan on my face... It's enough to have me quaking in my boots. That being said, I have been using an enhance and glow body lotion recently, and while it isn't giving me a tan as such, I definitely don't look like Casper the friendly ghost anymore! It does say that this mist can be used under makeup as a primer or afterwards as a setting spray which does sound more up my street so if I get brave, I'll be reaching for this.

Too Faced Love Flush Blush in Funfetti (RRP £30)
Oh my god, this might be the cutest blush I've ever laid my eyes on. The packaging reminds of the polly pockets I played with as a child and the design on the blush is adorable. I'm almost afraid to use this and ruin the bunnies.

Dior Diorific Mat Lipstick in 504 Magique (RRP £29.50)
I love this shade, it's a beatiful orangey red which is something I would choose myself so I'm very happy with this. The packaging is very heavy... And awkward, this isn't going to fit in my lipstick stand!

What I've Been Reading: June 2017.

This was something a little different for me but I loved this. I have visited Butlins in Skegness before and that was the reason I felt drawn to reading this. It wqas nice to read about the camp as it would have been back that, it was a really interesting insight! I even found myself googling for images of the old uniforms. The book focusses on Molly, Bunty and Plum, who all work at the recently reopened camp and we learn all about their separate backstories. A really good novel, particularly if you're a Butlins fan!

This book starts with Jason Bradley, star quarterback, being arrested after he's found standing over the body of his dead coach. I really enjoyed this book, so I'm definitely going to be looking into other books by Elle Casey. It was fairly easy to predict where the book was going to go regarding the reasons behind the coach's death as clues are dropped before the reveal but that didn't take anything away from the story itself.

I'm on the fence with this one. I liked it overall but it took me ages to get into. I found out after reading that it's actually the third book of the series it's part of yet Goodreads has it as the first book. Maybe if I'd read the first two, I might have been more invested? Who knows!

This book is fairly new and I keep seeing it in the book chart in the local supermarket and oh my god, it so deserves to be there! Hands down, my favourite book of the month! This book is such a mind fuck, I felt like my brain had been put in a blender by the time I finished it. Four friends, two couples and one tangled mess makes up this book. Celebrities aside (Dylan O'brien for me, Katy Perry for Glenn!), never ask your other half who they'd go for, especially people you know. That has to be the moral of the story here. Considering how much I loved this book, I really disliked all of the characters but you're not supposed to like them anyway. Honestly, you just need to read this book, like now!

I'm not that big into horror novels but I really enjoyed this one. It wasn't your stereotypical storyline, it was really unique and like nothing I've ever read before. I really liked the characters and was on the edge of my seat, hoping for them to make it to the end of the book alive! Thumbs up from me.

Look Incredible Deluxe Box, June 2017.

Look Incredible is my favourite beauty box on the market, which is why I've stuck with this company for over a year now. They offer two different boxes, a standard and a deluxe. I've tried both and realised that the deluxe box is the one for me! The deluxe box costs £35 per month on a subscription basis, with postage included in that price. The products inside are always high end and full size, no sample sizes here!

The products are always packaged nicely and if there is anything that could break on the way to it's destination, Look Incredible make sure it's wrapped securely in bubble wrap. That being said, I did receive one damaged product this month. All it took was one email and Look Incredible sent me a replacement in a speedy manor. As a company, customer service is something I have to rate them highly on, unlike some other beauty box companies I can think of. Let's take a look at this month's line up!

Decleor Aromessance Neroli Hydrating Night Balm (RRP £36)
I really like the sound of this product, though I've never tried this brand before. It's supposed to purify and balance the skin whilst locking in moisture. Anything that promises to help my skin feel more hydrated is a yes from me. Look Incredible state the RRP of this as £28 but it actually costs £36 on the Decleor website, which basically covers the cost of the whole box in one product!

Nars Matte Multiple in Exumas (RRP £25)
This was the damaged product I mentioned earlier so I was happy to receive a replacement as this is such a gorgeous colour. The idea of using cream products on my cheeks scares me a bit so I love the fact that this can be used on the lips as well.

Chanel Creme Lipstick in Aura (RRP £28)
Is this not one of the most beautiful nude shades you've ever seen?! I'm officially in love with this lipstick, it's probably one of the nicest I've ever received in a beauty box. The formula is so creamy, I just can't get enough of it. This has become my go to on work days.

Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara (RRP £19)
The mascara that needs no introduction! I already own a travel size of this but I hadn't gotten round to trying it yet. I can't complain about getting a full size because if the hype if anything to go by, I'm going to love this mascara.

L-R: Nars Exumas blended out, Chanel Aura.

Spa Retreats Moisture Rich Bath Cream
This wasn't on the product card so this is a cheeky bonus. The other four products add up  to a total over £100 so it was generous of Look Incredible to add this too. I love a good bath cream and this is probably my favourite out of all the Spa Retreats products that have been included over the last few months.

What do you think to June's deluxe box?
