Look Fantastic are rocking those spring vibes this month and not only does the pretty designed box represent the season but their April edition features both organic products in addition to products that are infused with good-for-you ingredients and it’s the perfect mix for that much needed renewal and beauty refresh after those long winter months! With a very generous seven products on board ranging from skin and body care, make-up and hair, this month’s curation also puts a host of brands in the spotlight and you can also expect to see the latest edition of Elle Magazine. Value wise this month’s contents are worth over £60.00 so it’s another value for money edition.
The Look Fantastic box offers a selection of handpicked, must have beauty fixes wrapped in a beautifully presented box and delivered straight to your door. The beauty box will always include a minimum of six products and offers a selection of skin care, hair care, cosmetics and body products, catering for every beauty lover.
This month’s box is filled with a generous mix of both full size and generous sized samples and showcases products from Laura Geller, Alterna, Merci Handy, This Works, Vitamasques, Omorovicza and Madara.
1. Laura Geller Balance and Brighten Foundation– Travel size 1.8g
Up first and the item that sparked my interest the most was this baked foundation from Laura Geller, a brand I’ve not tried much from until recently. I’ve got to admit powder foundations are not usually my thing during the winter months however now the weather is getting warmer this appears to be such an apt addition although I’m not entirely sure if everyone will receive the same shade. I received the shade fair which is the second lightest from the collection and I’m pretty pale so this turned out to be the perfect match for my skin.
The powder is mineral-oil free, paraben-free and contains antioxidants and is described as being “the creaminess of a liquid and silkiness of a powder”. This has such a silky feel to it and glides onto the skin effortlessly and offers fairly good coverage without the feeling of wearing heavy makeup. Also being in a powder form this doesn’t leave behind that cakey look and gives you a flawless yet natural finish.
2. Merci Handy Hand Cleansing Gel – Full size 30ml RRP £2.90
I think you’ll agree hand sanitisers are pretty standard in terms of what they do not forgetting the fact they can sometimes dry out your hands due to the alcohol content but say hello to Merci Handy who have transformed something rather dull into something colourful, fun, cute and fragrant.
Enriched with vitamin E and emollient beads, this bacteria fighting gel leaves hands feeling soft and smelling delicious and it’s compact size means you carry it when you’re on the go. I’ve received this inside previous boxes and absolutely love the stuff so I’m delighted Look Fantastic featured this among the line-up.
3. This Works Perfect Legs Skin Miracle– Sample size 10ml.
The Perfect legs skin miracle is a powerful tinted serum to perfect, repair, enhance and helps combat skin imperfections, skin discolourations and scars. Containing a powerful complex of Vitamin C and vitamin E to help even out skin tone and restructure the skin, while Arnica helps to fade bruising. I love the sound of this and can’t wait to give this a go.
4. Omorovicza Cleansing Foam – Travel size 25ml
Harnessing the powers of Hungarian thermal water, this delicately scented blue cleansing foam purifies and refreshes the skin, morning or evening. The sulphate-free formula removes all makeup and impurities without stripping skin of moisture. Although this has been marketed as a foam cleanser, it actually doesn’t foam up but does leave your skin feeling clean without drying it out.
5. Madara Mini Smart Day Cream – Travel Size 20ml
This rich, youth-preserving cream melts into the skin and provides comfort and protection all day long. Formulated with an age-defying Smart Antioxidant complex of Lichen, Moss, Fern, and Alchemilla to deliver intense hydration, reverse the first signs of ageing, and smooth out fine lines. Natural antioxidants provide continuous defence to preserve collagen and promote resilience and firmness of the skin.
6. Vitamasques Pomegranate Sheet Mask – x1 RRP £8.50
The Pomegranate Face Mask by Vitamasques promises to moisturise and lift your skin with an innovative triple layer sheet technology designed to enhance the moisture content within the mask which in turns leads to an increased absorption rate within the skin.
7. Alterna Caviar CC Cream – Travel Size 25ml
On the hair care front we have the Alterna Caviar CC Cream which hails as being a 10 in 1 product! Helping to leave hair feel polished and soft to the touch, this leave-in product delivers 10 benefits in just one easy step. Delivering expert help with moisture, shine, smoothness, softness, UV protection, manageability, strength, anti-breakage, heat protection and hold, the cream can be used alone or underneath other styling products.
If you’re a regular reader you’ll know that I’ve been constantly going on about the lack of variety inside the Look Fantastic Beauty Box and although there’s quite a few skincare products amongst the line up and a couple of brand repeats I’m pleased to report that this is definitely one of their better examples when it comes to a balanced beauty menu plus there’s an incredible seven products on board so it’s great value for money too. I really love the idea behind this month’s box which not only focuses on organic beauty and good-for-you ingredients but all the products gel together nicely with rejuvenation in mind. The main stand outs for me so far are the Laura Geller Balance and Brighten foundation, the Omorovicza Cleansing Foam and of course a long standing personal favourite being the Merci Handy Hand Cleansing Gel. Overall, I’d say this month’s edit was a huge hit with me and it’s the perfect collection to enhance your natural beauty.
The Look Fantastic Beauty Box is the perfect destination to try a range of beauty brands without the hefty price tag and for with subscriptions starting from £13.00 it’s such a guilt-free option to trial beauty products from brands we all love and know alongside some new discoveries too.
