We’ve teamed up with Lookfantastic to create a very special beauty box full of hero products hand-selected by the Stylist beauty team. Here’s what you’ll find inside the limited edition Lookfantastic x Stylist beauty box…
Last year, we brought you the inaugural Lookfantastic x Stylist limited edition beauty box, bursting with our favourite beauty, hair and skincare products. This year, we’ve packed our beauty box with 12 effective hard-working gifts to make the festive countdown your best yet. Worth over £300 (but costing less than one-third of that), you’ll be able to experience the brands and products exciting us most right now.
The result? The Lookfantastic x Stylist Limited Edition 12 Days of Advent Beauty Box, which right now – you’ll be pleased to hear – is only £50, a special one-day-only price.
Inside the box, you’ll find some essentials for the approaching winter months. First up, the Ren Clean Skincare Radiance Brightening Dark Circle Eye Cream that visibly reduces the puffiness and darkness of under-eye circles – a non-negotiable in senior beauty writer Morgan Fargo’s winter skincare routine. There’s also the illuminating Elemis Superfood Glow Priming Moisturiser for all-day radiance and the buttery Oskia Renaissance Mask to stimulate skin regeneration and reveal fresh luminous skin.
If you struggle with dehydrated skin, we’ve popped in a MyVitamins hyaluronic acid supplement to help maintain healthy levels of the moisture-retaining molecule, as well as the über-gentle, highly effective Pai Rosehip Light Work Cleansing Oil to efficiently cleanse your skin of SPF, daily grime and make-up. Formulated especially for sensitive skin and eyes, we particularly love that this cleanser gets to work without excessive rubbing, leaving your skin soft, supple and moisturised. Heavenly.
Another soft-skin giver, we’ve included Liz Earle’s multi-award-winning Cleanse and Polish Hot Cloth Cleanser, enriched with cocoa butter for nourishing moisture and a soothing botanical blend of rosemary, chamomile and eucalyptus.
Finally on the skin front, keep your eyes peeled for BareMinerals Skinlongevity Long Life Herb Serum (it’s designed to help repair and strengthen your skin barrier and improve texture), as well as the beloved Shiseido Ultimune Power Infusing Concentrate. Suitable for all skin types, apply between cleansing and moisturising to protect against damage, pollution and stress.
Next up: hair. The Grow Grow Gorgeous Intense Thickening Hair Mask works to make thin, flat, damaged hair a thing of the past. Formulated with caffeine, biotin, niacinamide and pea peptides for fuller hair, oat lipids to support the scalp’s natural barrier, and shea butter and coconut oil for moisture. We’d suggest lighting the Rituals Ayurveda Candle while you wait for the mask to do its work – it’s a sweet, slightly nutty, soothing blend of Indian rose and sweet almond oil.
Then, for make-up, we’ve added an eye make-up duo that’ll lengthen, define and complete your look. Start with Laura Mercier’s effortless Caviar Eye Shadow Stick – an easy to apply, buildable and pigment-rich way to wear shadow without needing more than the product and your fingertips. Next, lengthen and curl with Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara, combing the wand through evenly to coat each lash. Wear alone or together for a quick, complete eye.
Last but not least, Viktor & Rolf’s iconic fragrance, the burst of floral warmth that is Flowerbomb Eau de Parfum. A fragrance that encapsulates an entire bouquet of jasmine, freesia and rose with patchouli and vanilla, we like to apply it to warm, clean skin and allow the scent to develop.
The result? The Lookfantastic x Stylist Limited Edition 12 Days of Advent Beauty Box, £50 for one day only (normal price £100).
