Look Fantastic's Natural Spring Essentials | #LFBlooms

Every month online retailer Look Fantastic releases a monthly beauty box, each with a special theme and packed with goodies to try. This month it's all about the #LFBlooms* box which has been created to celebrate Earth Month. It's all about creating beauty with a difference, so the products that have been selected are natural, organic and eco friendly. All month long Look Fantastic are applauding the products that offer a natural (but still beautiful experience) and they took the chance to share their favourites with me!

First up we have the Calendula Redness Rescue Restorative Serum* by Jurlique (what a name!). The Calendula range from Jurlique is designed for sensitive skin, formulaed without chemicals or irritants. It’s just packaged with natural ingredients that calm, soothe, and restore moisture to the skin. Jurlique say that this serum is really powerful, but still very gentle on the skin. It’s packed with calendula extract, which helps to soothe sensitive areas of the skin and help build up the natural defences in the skin. It also includes prickly pear extract, which is designed to help build up our natural protective barriers. It’s created with all natural ingredients, and doesn’t use parabens, sulfates or phthalates. It is also made without artificial colors or fragrances.

It’s really important to try and avoid tugging or pulling at our eyes, as it really speeds up the ageing process, encouraging wrinkles. Which is why it’s really important to find a good eye makeup remover, which can just dissolve eye makeup quickly and effortlessly. Gatineau's Gentle Eye Make-Up Remover* is really simple to use; you just pour some onto two cotton pads and place them over your eyes. You only have to leave them there for 10-15 seconds and then wipe them away from the eye. The remover then erases all traces of make-up, without leaving your eyes feeling dry and sore. They just feel really smooth and hydrated, without feeling greasy or puffy. You can also put the Gentle Eye Make Up Remover in the fridge so that it feels cooling on the skin, which I love!

I’m a big fan of the original Wonder Eye Cream from Balance Me, so when I saw the Tinted Wonder Eye Cream* I was really intrigued. The Tinted Wonder Eye Cream combines the formula of the Wonder Eye Cream with a colour tint, to give you some extra coverage. It’s a great way of enhancing your skincare, joining together makeup and great ingredients – much like they’ve done with their lip balm range. The eye cream is a 99% natural formula and Balance Me say that the cream eradicates fine lines and blurs away dark circles. Whilst I can’t test the product on fine lines, it definitely does a great job at hiding dark circles. It also leaves your eyes feeling hydrated and fresh, which is great in warmer weather. The ingredients include Cucumber Seed Oil, Rosehip Oil and Arctic Cloudberry Seed Extract.

I’m quite ashamed to say that I don’t go out of my way to test natural and organic products (I know), but I’ve really enjoyed testing these three beauties! I’d love to hear your thoughts on these if you’ve tried them and I’d love to hear about your natural product suggestions!
