Each box comes with a booklet that tells you more about the products included with tips on how to use them.
Now, onto the items!
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
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!
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.
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!)
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
I was pretty surprised to see a foundation in this box since it is so skin tone specific.
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:
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.
