Look Fantastic April 2017 Subscription Box Review

Hello Subscription may earn compensation via links in this post. Read the full disclosure

lookfantastic Beauty Box is a monthly beauty subscription from the UK. This box is currently $22 per month, but goes down to $16.50 per month on an annual plan and ships free to the US and Canada! In every box, you’ll get a hand-picked selection of must-have beauty fixes, which are wrapped in a beautifully presented box and delivered straight to your door. It will always include a minimum of six products and the latest issue of Elle UK!

The new boxes are a bit more shallow in depth and I just noticed the beauty tip on the bottom of the lid.

There is a magazine by Look Fantastic in each box as well – this includes the product information, makeup tutorials, style highlights, and other features. It’s about darn time we had an ELLE collab box since we always get an issue of the magazine!

April’s theme was Natural Beauty — focusing on organic, natural, and cruelty-free products.

Pomegranate Sheet Mask ($4 for one) In addition to being tasty, poms are full of antioxidants which makes them great for your skin. They are high in vitamin C, which helps your skin produce important collagen.

Madara Fine Line Minimizing Cream ($18) This generous sample is half the size of the full size so it should last you a while! It includes lichen and moss, and is organic, vegan, and cruelty-free.

Caviar CC Cream Hair Perfector ($11) I thought this CC cream was for my face, but it’s actually a 10-in-1 hair protector:  moisture, shine, smoothness, softness, UV protection, manageability, strength, anti-breakage, heat protection and hold all in one! That’s pretty impressive. I’ve been using it after my shower on damp hair — I let my hair air dry — and it feels soft and bouncy. It’s not holy grail status for me but I’ll use it up for sure!

Omorovicza Cleansing Foam ($9) This is a brand from Hungary that I’ve never tried before. It’s loaded with minerals which help improve skin’s firmness. I’m currently putting together a new skincare routine and am hesitant to add a foaming cleanser until I’ve checked the pH, so I haven’t tried this yet.

Perfect Legs Skin Miracle ($4) For someone who doesn’t tan, I fell for the marketing printed on the bottle — it promises to even skin imperfections. What it actually is is a liquid tiny which didn’t add any colour to my legs but just covered them with glitter. I sparkle like a Twilight vampire now.

Merci Handy Hand Cleansing Gel ($3) This is super cute and smells floral and sweet. I love the packaging!

Laura Geller Balance & Brighten Foundation ($6) Mine shattered. But that’s okay — I don’t wear foundation anyway! Everyone was sent the second-lightens shade, Fair, so I feel like this might not be loved by all subscribers depending on your skin tone.

The April issue of ELLE was also included.

This month’s box had a value of $55 — a bit lower than normal but still some great products. I like that there was a more coherent theme this month and that all the products were natural.
