Now, onto the items!

Look-Fantastic-April-2017-0025

This Works Perfect Legs Skin Miracle – 10 ml Value $3.90

At first, I thought this was going to be way too similar to the St. Tropez Instant Gloss from the March Look Fantastic Box, but this formula is much more subtle. Whereas the St Tropez Gloss made my legs gleam, this lotion is more about using subtle shimmer to hide flaws.

Merci Handy Hand Cleansing Gel – Value $3

This hand sanitizer has little beads in it. (It immediately reminded me of Bath and Body Works hand sanitizers.) I wasn’t a big fan of this because of the scent. It’s very perfumy, and I prefer cleaner scents when it comes to soaps/sanitizers.

Vitamasques Pomegranate Sheet Mask – Value $4

Look-Fantastic-April-2017-0024

This sheet mask smelled lovely, and it was super hydrating, too. Can’t say I noticed a difference between this and most other sheet masks, but it worked well!

Look-Fantastic-April-2017-0029

Omorovicza Cleansing Foam – 25 ml Value $13.30

(Good to know for subscription swaps – this product has an inner foil seal.)

To me, this was the most luxe beauty product in the box. It’s a gentle foaming cleanser, and I just love the natural scent. Plus, it left my skin super clean and smooth.

Look-Fantastic-April-2017-0031

Alterna Caviar CC Cream – 25 ml Value $8.45

This do-everything styling cream is one of my all time favorite haircare products. You can use it in damp or dry hair, it smells amazing, and it always leaves my hair feeling softer and more manageable. (Plus Alterna is ingredient conscious!)

Look-Fantastic-April-2017-0033

Madara Mini Smart Day Cream – 20 ml Value $17.80

I love that Look Fantastic often sends out such great sizes of skincare samples! This natural/organic brand is new to me, and I really like the day cream formula!

It’s designed for dry skin to help minimize the appearance of fine lines. I found it to be moisturizing and quick drying – a perfect daytime cream for me!

Laura Geller Balance & Brighten Powder in Fair – 1.8 g Value $6.60

Look-Fantastic-April-2017-0040

I was pretty surprised to see a foundation in this box since it is so skin tone specific.

Look-Fantastic-April-2017-0039

The pressed powder formula swirled easily on my brush for an even color application, and the finish looked very natural. (I was able to build to medium coverage with no caking issues.)

Here it is swatched under the Perfect Legs:

(Perfect Legs blends in to be invisible on my skin.)

 

And this box includes the latest issue of  Elle UK Magazine:

Look-Fantastic-April-2017-0018

Value $5

Look-Fantastic-April-2017-0019 Look-Fantastic-April-2017-0021 Look-Fantastic-April-2017-0022

I love getting this mini mag with the box – it’s a fun extra, and the size is great for throwing in your purse, too.

The Verdict: This month’s box has a value of about $62 – I think that’s great for a $22 beauty box shipped from overseas! (And you can get the $16 a box annual price without having to pay the full amount up front, too.)

I liked almost every item in this box, too.

What do you think of the Look Fantastic Beauty Box April box? What was your favorite item in the box?

  1. I was really disappointed in this box this month. For $17 I was under the impression I would this would be nicely curated with useful products. Not so, a tiny leg serum? A powder for light skin? A cheap antibac? This was my first box and I’m sad I have to subscribe for 6 months.

  2. I’ve bought 3 boxes so far and this has quickly become my new favorite sub. I love all the new products and the magazine is perfect to have in my purse!! Love, love, love!!

  3. Love everything! I have never been disappointed! I can’t use the foundation but that’s OK cuz I already swapped it. I got a purple hand sanitizer. I love that there were 7 items this month!

  4. I got a red sanitizer too. As always, I love everything in LF, except the foundation. Way too light for me 🙁

  5. Loved everything in my Look Fantastic box as usual!! I will use everything…

  6. This sub has been on my radar for a while, I’m waiting for that trigger that makes me get it. This box doesn’t do it for me. For me, if there would have been a pink lip gloss or a nail polish, I would have jumped in with both feet.

    • I don’t think we’ll ever get a nail polish or a perfume due to international shipping laws.

  7. I’m surprised you didn’t mention the scents of both the This Works and the Day Cream. I don’t think I’ll be able to use the skin perfecter. It’s so perfumey! I swatched a little and had to go wash my hands because the scent was overwhelming. The Day Cream I just thought was funny, because the scent reminded me of curry. But it went away, so I don’t mind. My daughter loved the CC cream, and the way it left her hair feeling silky. She has very thick, wavy, coarse hair which tends to get tangled and messy very easily. Day two, and her hair is still soft.

  8. Love LookFantastic! They’ve quickly replaced Allure as my fave sub box (sorry, Allure). I’m excited for each box and get to try many new or new-to-me items that I have yet to receive in the other 10 sub boxes I’ve subscribed.

  9. I received all the same products but received a different variation of the hand sanitizer.

  10. I am super excited about the fair foundation. Usually sub boxes seem to cater to medium light skin tones but this should match my pale winter skin perfectly! Yay! I got a different hand sanitizer (it was red) which also had a strong perfume scent. It was a little too overwhelming for me. Overall not my favorite Look Fantastic box but not bad at all.

  11. Not sure why they would send out a foundation in a box that doesn’t have a style profile and wouldn’t know what shade to send. I was tempted by that spoiler but glad I saw that they were only sending out one color before I ordered the box.

  12. Do all the boxes have the same items or are there variations?

    • All have the same items. Hope that helps! 🙂

    • As far as I can remember, they’ve always had the same products. I don’t recall them ever sending out anything that could have a fragrance or color variant.

    • I have had a color variant in a lip liner. I also got a red hand sanitizer.

  13. This was my first box too. I love the cleanser. It smells amazing.

    My 2nd fave is the day cream. Very happy with the quality of the products.

  14. This is my first Look Fantastic box and I love the review. Can’t wait for it.
