LookFantastic #LFLoves Beauty Box Review

February is said to be the month of romance and LookFantastic definitely had that in mind when creating this months #LFLoves Box – I mean just look at that gorgeous packaging! Not only does the outside look amazing – and I’ll definitely be keeping this box to house some beauty items, but the contents is pretty fantastic too, a nice mixture of products this month – and with March’s copy of Elle Magazine included.

LookFantastic Beauty Box #LFLoves Feb 2015 UK Review emilyloula blog Monuspa Bliss

Monuspa Bali Massage & Body Oil

Received 35ml Sample | RRP £26 for 100ml
This month LookFantastic have sent out two body care products to their subscribers – the first of which is a Bali Massage & Body Oil from Monu that comes from their spa range. I haven’t previously heard of this brand before, but this oil sounds (and smells) lovely, so I’m very much looking forward to using it soon. The oil can be used in the shower or added into your bath, and helps to nourish and hydrate tired skin – whilst smelling amazing! The scent of this definitely reminds me of a spa, as it features sandalwood and rosewood, giving off a very relaxing vibe – so I’ll definitely be saving this for a pampered night in!

Bliss Pink Grapefruit and Aloe Body Butter

Received 30ml Sample | RRP £22 for 200ml
The second body care product in the LookFantastic box is from Bliss, and it’s their Pink Grapefruit & Aloe Body Butter. This smells very uplifting and citrusy due to the Pink Grapefruit element, which would be lovely when used in the mornings. I’m not a big fan of body butters in general, and have a large collection as it is, so I may pass this one onto a friend. It’s from a great brand, smells amazing and I’m sure it will do a great job, it’s just not for me!

LookFantastic Beauty Box #LFLoves Feb 2015 UK Review emilyloula blog Brush KMS

Denman Mini Keyring Brush

Received Mini Size | RRP £2.99
Denman is a well known brand in the hair brush industry, but it’s one that I myself haven’t tried, so I was glad to see this in the LookFantastic box. My hair is very thin and fine but it tangles incredibly easy, and very quickly – almost straight after its been brushed, so to have another travel sized hair brush will be very handy for me. I find that usually smaller sized hair brushes don’t actually do much good for my hair, and find them a bit gimmicky, but this one seems to do a really good job, so I’m glad it was included in the box.

KMS California Color Vitality Conditioner

Received 75ml Travel Size | RRP £14.50 for 250ml
I always think it’s strange that subscription boxes include either a shampoo or conditioner and not both, so I was a little disappointed to just see this conditioner in the LookFantastic box. KMS is a brand that I’ve tried a lot through subscription boxes actually, and so far I’ve liked everything I’ve used. This month, subscribers received the Color Vitality Conditioner which is infused with ginger and lilac, to help calm your scalp and protect from UV rays. I’ve been dyeing my hair for years now so I’m always happy to welcome products that are designed for coloured hair into my routine, so I’m looking forward to giving this a go.

LookFantastic Beauty Box #LFLoves Feb 2015 UK Review emilyloula blog Hi Impact Brows Lord & Berry

Hi Impact Eyes & Brow Perfector Palette

Received Full Sized Product | RRP £18.99
I love seeing full sized products within subscription boxes, but even more so when it’s a whole palette and worth £19! I’ve never heard of Hi Impact Brows before but it seems like they are a new brand to LookFantastic, which is exciting! The packaging feels nice and sturdy, it features a full sized mirror, an angled brush and 4 shades of powder. It states that the powders can be used for your brows or as eyeliners or eyeshadows, which is great, as I would imagine most people will only use one shade for their brows, meaning the other three won’t go to waste. The powders seem very pigmented and definitely work well when used on my brows, so I’m looking forward to seeing how they perform as eyeshadows and liners.

Lord & Berry Matte Lipstick Pencil

Received Mini Size | Full Size RRP £8
Everything that I’ve tried from Lord & Berry so far I’ve loved, but it’s a brand that I often forget about, and rarely purchase anything from. So I was super excited to see this matte lipstick within the LookFantastic box. Matte lips are my favourite, and this dusky pink shade is one that I would pick up myself. The pencil format makes it really easy to use and gives a precise application, but also means it’s perfect to be used as a lip liner too. I know that I’ll get a lot of use out of this, and I really like the formula so much I might even pick up a few more shades…

So that’s it for February’s LookFantastic box, it’s a nice mixture of beauty, body care and hair care, but no skincare in sight, which is rather odd for a LookFantastic box – but not that I’m complaining. I think that this is one of LookFantastic’s best editions – I always like to see some good makeup products in beauty boxes, but I feel like these have began to lack recently, so I’m very impressed with the full sized brow palette and the gorgeous L&B Matte Lipstick that feature this month! I wouldn’t necessarily say that the contents within the box match up to the valentines theme – maybe some perfume would have helped that along?, but I’m impressed none the less, and will get use out of most of the products included. This month’s LookFantastic box is worth over £50, which makes it great value considering the box retails for only £15 (inc free P&P), and allows you to try out a range of different products and new brands!

What’s your opinion on February’s LookFantastic box? Would you be happy to receive the products included this month? As always, I’d love to have a read of your thoughts in the comments, and thank you so much for reading!

    I’ve never come across this Look Fantastic beauty box before and I haven’t seen any other reviews either so this is something brand new for me! I love the look of the Tangle Angel I might need to get me one of those. Such a diverse range of products too! This looks great!
