New Skincare First Impressions! Unknown Brands?! LookFantastic Skincare Campaign
hi guys and welcome back to my channel my name is nikki for those of you who are new here and for those of you who are not welcome back so today i’m super excited because i am partnering with look fantastic i have done one other collaboration with them and it is really awesome to know that like they have reached out and this is a second collaboration with them um and so they sent me over some products to try i got to like curate the products that i wanted to try so if you guys haven’t heard of look fantastic they are a british online beauty boutique that was founded in 1996.
now they’re also expanding to the u.s and basically it’s just an online retailer that sells a bunch of different products and i am super excited to be working with them so this time around the products that they sent me or like the products that i chose were all skin care i’ve really been trying to get into skincare and that is what this video is all about so if you are interested in some skincare goodies let’s talk about it so the first thing i want to try is this right here i believe it’s pronounced lumen but this is the nordic c glow boost essence this is what it looks like right here this is paraben free cruelty free phthalate free and gluten free as well so it has none of the bad stuff this retails for 25 on their website so this is a super concentrated product that comes in a dropper like so and um this is supposed to help you with brighter looking skin and intensely hydrated skin so i’m super excited to try this out this is a radiance enhancing technology and antioxidant rich with a ton of vitamin c so the reason that i chose this product in particular is because i have been looking for like a good vitamin c serum so the big ingredient here is vitamin c and it also contains hyaluronic acid so i feel like sometimes especially in the wintertime i actually i don’t know if you guys can tell but like when i’m pulling it out it kind of comes out slowly i really like the dropper on this also when you apply skincare that comes in droppers you want to make sure not to touch the dropper against your skin okay this has a beautifully refreshing um like citrusy like awakening scent but it’s not overpowering like i really have to um i guess focus on the scent to like pick it up i could tell there was some sort of scent here but it’s very very mild and i think it’s completely natural so this is really nice i don’t know if you guys can tell but like when i put my fingers against my skin it feels super tacky this feels really nice i am so excited to be using this with all these products i’m going to leave a little update in the description below as i use them but i think this is the product that i am the most excited about which is why i wanted to talk about it first is something that i truly truly needed and i’m really excited to have that so kind of in the same family this is by the same brand from finland and so that’s why i feel like i’m struggling to pronounce their name i believe it’s pronounced lumen but this is again from their nordic sea line this is their arctic berry oil cocktail so this is an oil it retails for the same price of 25 this is a brightening hydro oil so you can see in the tube that it is like a dual kind of formula here so one’s an oil base and one’s a thicker so it says to shake before use apply the face and neck after cleansing for best results and this one is also gluten-free paraben free cruelty-free and phallithate free so this one also has vitamin c but it is a blend of wild arctic cloudberry cranberry seed oil vitamin c so just talk about the packaging real quick i love caps like this that come with this little like stopper because you know it’s not going anywhere i actually have another product that has a similar lid situation and i really like it so this is supposed to help with smooth velvety um hydrating looking skin and this is a really nice oil oh my god this smells so good it smells like something i can like put my finger on but like i can’t quite it smells like a drink like a like a green tea esque vitamin c flavored drink so just as a heads up guys i probably wouldn’t apply this before makeup like in my own routine i would apply the vitamin c serum but not the oil the oil is something i would normally stick to at night or if i wasn’t going to wear any makeup throughout the day because oils can break up your makeup and so if you guys know i’m kind of a makeup page or kind of extremely much so a makeup page and um so i’m very like um careful when it comes to oils before makeup i actually didn’t shake it before applying it it definitely says too so this is what it looks like after you’re supposed to shake it so i didn’t apply any on my neck i’m gonna see if it feels differently now it comes out in the same consistency i really like to make sure that i don’t neglect my neck when it comes to skincare especially because that’s one of the places that shows the most lines and as you get older it really is obvious whether you’re taking care of your skin there or not and so it’s one of the places like shows the most aging so i really like to make sure to put any moisturizer and any skincare that i applied to my face to bring it down to my neck and then sometimes even when i’m done i will rub it on my hands because the top of your hands is also another place where aging the signs of aging really show so if you guys know i’m normally a very affordable channel and i think that 25 per one of these is a little bit high on my price range normally but i also know that skincare is something that you cannot like super cheap out on like especially with a good vitamin c oil i’ve noticed that like i hadn’t purchased one because they were all really high in price range and i think 25 for this is not bad but i know that a lot of you guys also maybe like more high-end things and so i sometimes try to incorporate high-end makeup in my videos as well but i also thought that including a high-end product in this video would be maybe beneficial to some of you who have that price range so so this is the xlinia peptide smoothing serum so this is also a cruelty-free product it is like right on the back of their packaging here and it says it’s also formulated without synthetic dyes fragrances or parabens so i actually picked this up specifically to test out for my older crowd on my channel or anybody who just really wants to fight any signs of aging i’m only 23 years old but i know that once i think you get 25 your skin starts to slow the production of collagen which causes like wrinkles and sagging and fine lines and such so the way that this works is that it’s a targeted neuropeptide that firms and tightens and strengthens aging skin so this is what the bottle looks like it actually is quite a bit of product um in here i think it would last a really long time it’s one fluid ounce however this does retail for 115 dollars you want to apply this in areas where you know that you’re having issues with wrinkles so for most people you would want to apply this kind of around your eyes especially in that crow’s feet area above the brow i can even tell i’m getting some fine lines right here and if you are one of those people that just smiles all the time definitely your smile lines because that is just one of those things i actually really love the packaging on this it’s a glass bottle it feels very luxurious and it is travel friendly because it is under that one fluid ounce um range so it kind of comes out in this like serum-y formula and i’m just going to apply it in those targeted areas you don’t need a lot of this product and it kind of has like a um a minty-esque scent but again it’s very light um it doesn’t have any fragrances added to it so i know that this is just what it happens to smell like and also when you’re working with areas of your face that you’re concerned about wrinkles you want to be really sensitive so you can tell i’m kind of tapping um i’m being very very gentle with this you would want to apply serums and lighter products like this in your skincare first and then go in with like heavier creams and such and um i would personally only use an oil at night also i wanted to mention that look fantastic also does have after pay so if you wanted to purchase this product but it’s kind of like not within your budget right now you can do four installments of 28.
75 if you wanted to purchase it with after pay so i actually love when websites have after pay because sometimes it’s not in everybody’s budget right away but it comes with an option for you to purchase it and pay it in installments so last but not least from the mio skincare line i got the clay away body cleanser so i’m always looking for like a really good body cleanser so this is a two in one wash and mask it has 200 milligrams in here it’s a trio of clays leaves skin feeling deeply cleansed and purified matcha tea extract renowned for its antioxidant properties black willow tree bark extract helps to improve the appearance of skin and invigorating fragrance refreshing eucalyptus leaf essential oil so i love the smell of eucalyptus actually so i’m super excited to try this this is obviously like a body cleanser um so it’s something i would definitely use in the shower but i want to show you guys the packaging real quick so i actually love that it is this squeezy tube packaging this is quite large um i feel like it would last a good amount of time but um the reason i like that is because when you’re in the shower i find that sometimes like pumps are frustrating and it shouldn’t wing but this you can just squeeze out to your loofah or whatever and i’m just gonna pump a little bit out into my hand so it is a clay away cleanser with this like clay like formula oh my gosh the smell on this is incredible i love the smell of eucalyptus i always have and i will insert some photos of this as well here just from their website this is also cruelty free vegan paraben free gluten free sulfate free like all the bad stuff that’s what i really like about um all of these products is that i feel like the like science behind them is very clean you can use code glow nikki on any of these products and site-wide there are some exclusions but you can use code glow nikki for 20 off on any of these products so like i said i’m going to continue to use these products see how i feel about them i am definitely the most excited for vitamin c serum it’s just something that i feel like my skin really needs vitamin c is so good for your skin and it’s something that i have definitely been neglecting in my skincare routine and if you guys know i’ve been really trying to get more into skincare so i love the fact that this is very clean skincare if you guys are also on a skincare journey let me know what you think and products that you have been loving also don’t forget to use code glow nikki to get 20 off on the products here on lookfantastic.
