This month's LF Beauty Box is themed #LFXmas, of course. The packaging is rose gold - to match with the gorgeous LookFantastic Advent Calendar 2016, which I had unboxed here.
The Elle UK magazine for December 2016 is also included with the box. I hope they continue this well into 2017.

Elle UK's December issue accompanies this month's box.
The LookFantastic #LFXmas Beauty Box for December 2016 contains:
- Illamasqua Hydra Veil Primer
- Mellow Cosmetics Madness Lipstick
- Bubbles Bath Bomb
- Balance Me Pure Skin Face Wash
- Philip Kingsley Elasticiser
- Skin Republic Caviar and CoQ10 face mask
Illamasqua Hydra Veil PrimerI'm moving away from mattifying primers, towards hydrating primers, ever since I started using 100% coverage foundations such as Kevyn Aucoin Sensual Skin Enhancer. This one contains Vitamins C and B3, and micro algae. It will hydrate the skin beneath all the makeup. Sounds ideal. Will try it out beneath the SSE and see how it goes.
Mellow Cosmetics Madness Lipstick
Bubble T Bath BombThis pretty pink Hibuscus and Acai Berry Tea bath bomb contains Goji Berry and Vitamins C and A, and is free of parabens and SLS. After Christmas, I'm going to take some me-time and relax. This will be dropped into the tub then!
Balance Me Pure Skin Face WashI wasn't a huge fan of Balance Me face serums and creams, but liked their hand cream. I suspect it is the use of certain essential oils that my skin did not love. This face wash is for congested and blemished skin and is sulphate-free. It contains grapefruit oil and is supposed to be very gentle. I'll give it a try after the Christmas parties - if it doesn't work, I'll palm it off on a teenage friend who happens to be a face wash-junkie.

Verdict and where to subscribe to the LookFantastic Beauty BoxA fabulous box this month, with two makeup products, and three full-sized products. I love that they sent out a rose gold box, and a full-sized lipstick - long may the makeup trend last!
I cannot wait to see what LookFantastic has in store for 2017, and hope they continue to send out the Elle magazine.
