It’s been a almost a week since I received my first Lookfantastic Beauty Box so it’s time to give the items I received an honest review.
Read on to find out what I thought after giving all of the items a good testing…
Lookfantastic Beauty Box (honest) Review
The monthly subscription costs £15 per month and postage is free! There are also 3, 6 and 12 month upfront subscriptions – obviously the more months you subscribe to, the more discount you get on each box. Like my other monthly subscription boxes, I selected the 1 month rolling subscription allowing me the flexibility to cancel as and when I choose.
The box itself comes well packaged and is delivered using Royal Mail, which gets a massive thumbs up from me – mainly because my mail man always delivers by 9:30am. This month I received a magazine along with 6 products.
So, what’s in the box and what did I think?…
The ELLE Magazine sits right at the top of every box – I love that Lookfantastic include a magazine in their boxes – it’s not something that I’ve seen in any other box. This month’s ELLE cover features Ashley Graham.
“These super high pigmented eyeshadows are perfect for party makeup. From metallic to high-gloss effects they will make a hell of an impression.”
… How friggen cute is this product! I absolutely love this eyeshadow. This colour suits me so well and looks really lovely on the eyes – applies easily and stays put. I’m going to have to buy another when I’ve used this one! This is the full size product, so just this item alone is more than I paid for my box!
RRP £20 (as part of a set)
“This is the new addition to the PIXI liquid glow boosters, and this new shade is out of this world – literally. The formulation makes this product super blendable and doesn’t sit on your skin, as if your skin was reflecting from within.”
… I’m yet to brave applying this to my face as it made the back of my hand super-sparkly! I’m definitely going to give it ago around the Christmas season as it is very pretty. Since the unboxing video, I’ve found out that you can apply this to your skin on it’s own, or mix with your base. I’ve guessed the price of this item to be around £6.
RRP £19.20 – 75ml (photo is sample size)
“A super blend of Lavender, Camomile and Vetivert that is clinically proven to increase sleep quality so you wake up looking and feeling refreshed, with skin that’s ready for the day ahead.”
… I’m yet to use this – not sure if it’s wise whilst co-sleeping with my 1 year old. And I still don’t know if this is safe to use on my children’s pillows… Anyone know? lol. This 5ml sample works out at around £2.50.
RRP £59.50 – 50ml (photo is sample size)
“A daily cream that acts as a shield on your skin, protecting it from UV damage and pollution. This powerful hydrating cream will also help to improve radiance (thanks to the Vitamin-C) and over time, your skin will feel firmer, stronger and look younger.”
… This little 10ml sample is worth £11! I’ve been using this for the past 3 days and love the way it makes my skin feel after applying. It smells extremely citrus-y – almost too a bit too much for my liking. I really rate products that contain SPF and this one is SPF 30!
RRP £33.30 – 15ml (photo is sample size)
“an innovative treatment that will give some serious lift to the eye area and also to your lashes! This product is a multi-tasker and results can be seen very quickly, apply it morning and night under your eyes, on your eyelids and at the roots of your lashes.”
… This 7ml sample is worth around £16! I am in love with this eye cream! It smells beautiful, it feels silky soft and a little really does go a long long way!
” The perfect matte liquid lipstick. This amazing Bellapierre Kiss Proof Lip Creme will not disappoint. It stays on the whole day – even throughout the night, whether you eat, drink or kiss it will not budge.”
… I received the full size product. First impressions were mixed! I’ve never had a lip product like this and whilst it was drying, I was unsure. Once dry (it does take a good 10 mins), I loved it. I do like a good matte lip and this looks great on me. The colour was also a hit.
What did I think of this month’s Lookfantastic Beauty Box?
A.M.A.Z.I.N.G! The contents of the box (minus the ELLE Magazine) tots up to over £70! And what’s more, I’m really happy with every item I’ve received. Fantastic first impressions and possibly my favourite beauty box subscription so far!
