Beauty Products Emptied in June 2017

I'm going to be travelling from the second week of July, so my mid-year makeup haul will be from Selfridges, Boots, Harvey Nicks, and so on. As I have been on a shopping ban for a while, I'm making a rather large list of makeup to get. Recommendations welcome.
But all that is a good month away. Here's what I used up this month - featuring my favourite Vitamin C.

Scroll down for thoughts on the beauty products I used up in June 2017.

Benton Cacao Moist And Mild Cream Review

Any K-Beauty fan knows their Benton. I've reviewed their entire snail range here. Fast-acting healers for distressed skin, the lot.
For K-Beauty newbies, Benton was inspired by the movie The Curious Case of Benjamin Button, where the protagonist grows younger with time. Benton aims to take your skin back in time, restoring it to peak condition.
Recently, they launched a Cacao Moist and Mild Cream for the face. It is fragrance-, alcohol-, and colouring-free.
A bit of trivia for you: Cocoa's scientific name comes from Theo (God) and broma (food). What woman is not going to agree that cocoa is the food of the gods?

No Makeup No Life Beauty Box June 2017 Unboxing

The No Makeup No Life Beauty Box from Japan has quickly shot up to the top of my favourite subscription boxes. At just $29.99 INCLUDING worldwide delivery, with everything inside full-sized, what's not to love about this beauty box?
As I expand my Asian Beauty journey from Korea to Japan, this box is aiding me in discovering some brilliant cosmetics. It reminds me of Memebox in their heyday back in 2014, before they bit off far more than they could chew and decided that the world consisted of just the one country.
The theme for the June 2017 NMNL box is "2-in-1 beauty products". I expected a lip and cheek tint, obviously.

LookFantastic Beauty Box June 2017 Unboxing

I shot a video of this unboxing over the weekend, only to find that the results were way too dark in this sunless, rainy weather. Turns out it's the Sony Handycam's fault, while my Canon DSLR is a far better choice for videos under poor lighting conditions. Lesson learnt.
LookFantastic's June 2017 beauty box is the Wanderlust edition - obviously containing travel essentials. The box design is one of the prettiest till date. Size has gone up as well, and now the box itself accommodates the Elle UK magazine for the month.

Oskia Renaissance Mask Gives An Instant Glow

Oskia is a luxury British skincare brand whose signature ingredient is MSM or methylsulfonylmethane. MSM, a.k.a. the Beauty Mineral, is a natural form of sulphur that helps circulation, decreases inflammation, and promotes collagen and keratin production - thereby keeping the skin (and hair) in good nick.
I have been using the Oskia Renaissance Cleansing Gel and the Renaissance Mask on a regular basis since last year. The Renaissance Mask is a rinse-off enzyme-based facial treatment with MSM, lactic acid, probiotics, and a host of fruit extracts.

You Need These Glass Nail Files From Mont Bleu

My first experience with a glass nail file was very short-lived and ended abruptly when I accidentally stepped on it - don't ask! The ensuing mess meant I had to buy new bedroom slippers, and I've never really found a pair as comfortable as my froggie pair. Thankfully, the file itself was plain.
This time around, the journey is far easier. For one, the nail files I'm showing you today are absolute beauties, so I'm more careful. Secondly, each Czech glass file comes in an individual slip-case. I've already dropped these a couple of times and they've held! Finally, these are so much kinder to my already-brittle nails than steel files.
Mont Bleu Files are made with the famous Bohemian glass, and are decorated with precious metals, handpainting, and Swarovski crystals. They are crafted in Prague with fine-tempered glass.
