This month I decided to buy LookFantastic’s Beauty Box, I’ve had two boxes from them previously but I wasn’t too impressed with their contents so I was hoping that March’s box could restore my faith in LookFantastic – and boy it has.
LookFantastic’s Beauty Box is great because you just purchase the single box as a one off for £15 – so there’s no contract or subscription, which I love. You can buy 3, 6 or 12 month’s in one go to save money, like many other beauty box services. I’m so impressed with this months contents, and the value for money is great.
This month inside the box I received;
- Cowshed | Lippy Cow
- Wet Brush | Mini Wet Brush
- Lord & Berry | Line/shade Kajal & Eye Pencil Liner
- Nudestix | Magnetic Colour Gift
- Bliss | Fatgirlslim
- Nuxe | Nuxellence
COWSHED | LIPPY COW
Received full size item | RRP £5
I’m a big lover and believer in natural lip balms, so I was really happy to see this in the box. Lippy Cow contains essential oils of linden blossom to protect and nourish, rose geranium to help rejuvenate and ylang ylang to stimulate circulation. This feels really lovely on the lips and I’m especially happy because its naturally paraben and sulphate free. It has a fairly thick consistency, but not too thick, it just really feels like it’s nourishing and working it’s magic.
WET BRUSH | MINI WET BRUSH
Received full size item | RRP £7.99
I’ve never used a mini brush that works as well as this, it’s actually amazing. My hair tangles quite easily and sometimes becomes unmanageable but this made an easy job of my locks, I can’t quite believe how good it is. My hair usually sheds a lot during brushing especially when it’s tangled but this didn’t tear or snag my hair at all. If you’re on the lookout for a new hair brush I would definitely recommend this, amazing.
LORD & BERRY | LINE/SHADE KAJAL & EYE PENCIL LINER
Received travel size item (0.7g) | RRP £12 for 4g
Another thing I’m always happy to see in a beauty box is eye liner, I wear black eyeliner most days so I’m consistently on the hunt for a pencil that blows me away. This is a really black black, which I love, and it’s really soft and not scratchy at all, which can be hard to find in a wooden pencil. It can be smudged for a lovely smoky eye or applied with precision for a more defined and polished look.
Received full size item | RRP £24
I was really excited to see a full sized Nudestix in this month’s box which is worth £24, considering the whole box cost £15 – that’s amazing value. I received the shade Gilt which is such a beautiful metallic peach gold shade. You can use this is an eyeshadow, a liner or even as a base as the formula will prime your eyelids for all day wear. It’s really long wearing and it has the most creamy and smooth application – I was completely wowed by this.
BLISS | FATGIRLSLIM
Received mini size (56g) | RRP £29.50 for 170g
Fatgirlslim is said to make skin look and feel firmer and more toned. On the card provided in the box it claims that after 28 days of use 87% of people saw a firming effect, 85% felt a slimming effect and 73$ noticed a reduction in the appearance of cellulite. You are supposed to massage this into the skin for 20 seconds twice a day which simultaneously stimulates circulation. These are pretty impressive numbers, so I’m definitely giving this a go – hopefully this mini size will give me a fair bit of product as a replacement is definitely on the pricey side at £29.50
NUXE | NUXELLENCE DETOX
Received 15ml Sample | RRP £47 for 50ml
This month some people will have received an item from Caudalie, but the other option was from NUXE, which is what I got. I love NUXE as a brand so was happy to see this little sample in the box. It is a detoxifying and youth revealing anti-aging care, although it says it is suitable for all ages, and all skin types. It smells really lovely and sinks into the skin straight away, which is something I always look for with creams. I’ve been looking for a new night cream so I’m definitely going to give this a whirl.
Overall, this month I’m really impressed with LookFantastic’s beauty box offering. I will get use out of every single product and the 4 that I’ve tried I’m completely smitten with. I’m super looking forward to using Fatgirlslim, and hoping I’m going to see some great results – I’ll keep you updated. The value of this month’s box is over £70, and considering there’s only a £15 price tag, it’s excellent value for money. I would definitely recommend picking one of these up before they sell out!
What do you think of this months LookFantastic box? Did you buy one this month?
