LookFantastic Beauty Box April 2016

Look Fantastic Beauty Box is a box from the UK and you will receive a minimum of six products.   Those products will be an assortment of skin, hair, cosmetic and body products.  There also are sometimes high value surprises added to a few boxes randomly.  They promise to have a much higher value than what you pay each month as well.  They have free worldwide delivery on the boxes or things you order from the website. Boxes are $28 a month but go down with 3,6 or 12 month subscriptions.  Shipping was pretty quick for overseas and I received tracking notices as well.  The stuff I’ve been getting in this box has been really nice.  This one was a find and I really enjoy it.

There is a theme again this month as evidenced by the decorated box.  Included for the last few months is an edition of Elle UK.

I hate these black squiggles.  They leave a coating of dust all over everything and just make a mess.  Beyond that, the samples look to be good sized.

The mini mag included gives you a rundown of your products and tips on using them.  They also have plenty of other ideas inside to give you inspiration and information on other things they sell. The theme is Blooms and in honour of Earth Day everything in the box is natural, organic or eco to help you get in touch with Mother Nature.

Rituals Miracle Hand Scrub-75mL $21.39

This is the Editor’s Pick of the month.  It smells so good!!!  This scrub has ginseng and ginkgo biloba to soften and exfoliate your hands.  It is a salt scrub so they do warn you to rinse and dry your hands completely so avoid chapping your skin.  I really can’t get over how wonderful this smells. I want to wear it as a perfume.

Bloom And Blossom Bath And Shower Gel-50mL $7.13

This shower gel is free of parabens, sulfates, and synthetic fragrance.  It is not as fabulous scented as the scrub was but I don’t know that anything else today can top that.  It mentions that it is safe to use during pregnancy and motherhood because it is natural.

Briogeo Don’t Despair, Repair! Deep Conditioning Mask-29mL $4.45

This deep conditioning mask is infused with all sorts of oils and vitamins.  It’s cruelty free, and contains no silicone, synthetic fragrance, parabens, or phthalates.  It promises to give you healthy looking hair, with shine, elasticity, and strength.  Can’t complain about any of that.

Elemis British Botanical Hand And Nail Butter-20mL $6.70

You can really smell the lavender in this cream.  It has a few different essential oils to both calm you and promote happiness and well being.  It does not leave you greasy at all and I would very much buy more of this!  It’s fantastic and not floral at all.

Tanworx Tan Maintainer-60mL $10.42

I’ve said it before and I;m saying it again…..the British must have a thing with tanning.  I get a tan product every couple of boxes from them and since I only get a tan if the sun hits me I have to wait a few more months to have anything to maintain.  They actually say this makes a great base for fake tanning as it leaves your skin smooth and silky while holding in moisture.  It has carrot, coconut, and sunflower oils and smells like a good moisturiser that I want to just use.

Balance Me Super Toning Body Polish-50mL $11.16

Oh another scrub.  This one stinks.  Literally not figuratively.  That’s the problem I have with so many natural products.  The stuff that stops them from being natural is the stuff that makes them smell pretty and I would rather have smell over healthy.  This one is for your whole body and uses ground walnut to do the exfoliating.  It has blackberry leaf which it says will increase collagen and cell renewal.  They suggest using in the tub to get the best results.

There is a bonus item this month that I swear I took a picture of but now no longer exists and since in the intervening time I dropped my phone and it died and I had to get a new one I can’t even get that picture back.  There is a vial of My Vitamins Lemon Flavour Performance Effervescent.  It contains 20 tablets that You drop, one per day, into a glass of water and drink up.  It says they are a food supplement and contain caffeine plus Vitamin B1, B2, B6, and green tea extract.  I’ve been drinking a ton of water lately so anything to make it taste like not water is a great thing.

 

This month had a value of $81.25 including $20 for the tablets, plus the magazine.  This month’s mix was great. The best part about LookFantastic  is that they have sales all the time and free worldwide shipping so if you want more of anything or find other things on their site it’s simple to get.  I can’t wait to see what fun they send next month and have yet to be disappointed with what I find in here.
