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 packaging of this box is always top notch, with colour coordinated tissue and paper squiggles.
All I see is purple and I’m loving it as it is my favorite color!
A mini product magazine came with the box.
It has a welcome note and editor’s corner on the first page. This month’s theme is In the Spotlight.
This page bears The Table of Contents.
The next few pages are comprised of this month’s featured brands and products.
It’s complete with photos, as well as useful tips!
Everything in my box!
Elle Think Spring March 2019 Edition. This month’s Elle UK copy is a total guide to the biggest fashion trends of Spring 2019. On the cover is Michelle Williams, an award-winning American actress.
Morphe Mini Highlighter in Spark ($8) I can never leave my house without a highlighter because it gives my skin a beautiful color boost and enhances my bone structure as well. So I was so elated to see this mini Morphe highlighter palette along with the other items!
The shade and contents of every cosmetic product are shown at the bottom of each box and the palette.
The size of this palette is perfect for on the go and touch ups. I love how I can carry it around with me all the time!
This killer highlight in Spark shade has innovative ingredients and daringly creamy formula. I like it because it has enough pigment to it that adds more brightness to the color, but since I have a fair complexion, I had to dab a little more to get a perfect blend on my skin. Although I can tell that for darker skin tones, it won’t take much to get great results.
Here’s a swatch for a closer look of the shade on my skin. It appears a bit opaque on me, but I believe it still gives enough of the illumination I was looking for.
EOS Lip Balm ($3.29) This lip balm is packed in a smooth sphere packaging for easy application.
Packed with a blend of conditioning ingredients including cocoa and shea butter, it’s a deeply nourishing lip balm with a neutral flavor. It glides effortlessly over the lips helping to restore moisture and softness on the lips. It’s also free from parabens, petrolatum, and gluten. And because it’s a sphere – superfun!
The Ordinary Hyaluronic Acid ($10.90) Despite the name, this product is a lot of things but ordinary, because it offers the amazing hydrating properties of hyaluronic acid. This oil-free treatment penetrates deep into skin layers and delivers intense, long-lasting moisture that swiftly smooths and perfectly plumps. Enhanced with a boost of vitamin B5 to increase efficacy, this lightweight serum leaves my skin softened and strengthened.
Madara Smart Anti-Pollution Charcoal And Mud Repair Mask ($6.67) I always want to try face masks that can take away all the dirt and pollution from my skin, and I’m glad to discover a new one! This charcoal infused mask (it’s black!) purifies the skin and detoxifies it while stimulating the skin . After using it, my skin instantly felt smooth and even without irritation. Hoping to see some pore shrinkage!
Rituals The Ritual Of Sakura Soothing Hand Balm ($17) With just a drop of this hand balm, my hands felt instantly moisturized. Unlike other hand creams, it’s not greasy and it feels soft and wonderful on the skin! The rice milk with cherry blossom scent is also calming – it’s super floral and very pretty for spring.
It’s sufficiently gentle even for easily-upset skin types. It gives the skin moisture while helping to draw out impurities and balance oil production. It smells amazing too!
Since Easter is just around the corner, LookFantastic is launching an Easter Beauty Egg limited edition box.
This corner is especially intended for the avid subscribers of LookFantastic!
They also put the spotlight on the owner of Morphe, Linda Tawil and brother/co-founder, Chris.
They gave us more insights on Morphe and how it started!
Retinol is on spotlight too! All we need to know about the product are also cited on the booklet.
I am so looking forward to the Spring and Summer Collection of this year!
This month’s cosmetic and beauty items really put me in the spotlight! The cleansing foam, charcoal and mud repair mask, and the hydrating hyaluronic acid treatment are the newest addition to my daily skin care regime! The copy of Elle magazine also gave me a lot of fashion and makeup ideas for the Spring, so now I can’t wait to try them out! The box itself had about $53 in value, and I thought it was a really solid box with items that just about any person interested in a beauty box would love!
