Check out all of our Look Fantastic Beauty Box reviews!

Each box comes with a booklet that tells you more about the products included with tips on how to use them.

Now, on to the items!

 

First Aid Beauty Facial Radiance Pads – (28 count) Value $15

If you aren’t familiar with these pads, they are formulated with lactic and glycolic acids to exfoliate, tone, and brighten skin.

These are gentle on my skin, refreshing, and I love a good multi-use product! (And I’m impressed that Look Fantastic sent us a full-size version, too!)

Hailey Baldwin for ModelCo Lip Gloss in Biz – 3 ml Value $14

This lip gloss has a sweet, berry flavor and a wash of color. The shine is intense, and it’s a bit sticky. Perfect for a super glossy look, but probably a little too sticky for me to use often.

Colors will vary. (Swatched in lower photo.)

BellaPierre Cosmetics Shimmer Highlighter in Excite – FULL SIZE! Value $15

This is a super shimmery highlighter. It reads pretty white on my skin, so I’ll probably try blending it with eyeshadows instead of using it as a highlighter. I also recommend using a primer with this loose powder – I had a lot of fall out sampling it.

Here it is swatched beneath the lip gloss:

Kerastase Resistance Strengthening Shampoo – 80 ml – Value $20.50

(Subscribers will get one of several Kerastase shampoos.)

Kerastase is one of those luxe haircare brands I love getting in subscription boxes, but can never justify buying the pricey full-size version. So, this is a treat!

The formula smells amazing, and I couldn’t tell a big difference after using it once, but I have another use or two in this sample, so I’m hoping my hair feels stronger when the bottle is empty!

MONU Rosewood Reviving Mist – 40 ml Value $5.90

I’m loving this spray! The mist is very fine, so you can spritz it over makeup, it works as a face and/or body spray, and the natural scent is fab, too. (It’s a blend of essential oils from Lemon, Rosewood, Sandalwood, Petitgrain, Geranium and Clary Sage.)

Balance Me Balancing Face Moisturizer – 20 ml Value $12.80

Balance Me is a great natural beauty line. This moisturizer is lightweight and soothing. (It feels perfect for summer.) And it left my skin feeling so smooth I skipped primer and went straight to foundation!

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

Value $5

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 $88 – 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.)

This might be my favorite Look Fantastic Beauty Box of all time – amazing products and great sizes, too!

Bonnie

Everyone I saw got the lip gloss in Biz. I got a Beige one, but in color and in name. It’s very similar to Biz, just more true beige, no pink.

Donna

Perhaps it’s just me, but I feel that the price is too high to deluxe sample size products. Allure is much cheaper and they send you products of the same size.

Bonnie

Allure is actually not cheaper. I guess it depends when you buy. Allure charges $15 + tax, so $15.95 for me. LF is $14.50, at least it was when I got it, if you commit to a year, but you can still pay month to month. I suppose if you changed credit cards and didn’t tell them you could get out of the full year. Since they aren’t in America, they probably wouldn’t try to prosecute you. I like LF because many of the products are different than what you get in American boxes.

Korey

For US subscribers: how long does it take you to get your box?

Bonnie

It’s often the first box I get for the month. Not always. Like all my subs, there is inconsistency when it comes to shipping dates. But they are pretty quick, considering they are coming from the UK.

Lola

I have found approximately three weeks to California.

Nicole

My box shipped last night (finally! Lol) any of you ladies who have already received your boxes, would you care to share the invoice # of you FEDEx shipping label? Mine is 1x 1702-DO-1II
Should be here Saturday (I’m on the East coast).

Nicole

If I sub today, will I receive this box? I love it!

Missy

Yes you will! I just got mine today 🙂

BeccaMari

An amazing box! The value is ridiculous! And I only pay $14 monthly. I love this sub box and have no intention of ever canceling!

Debbie

Not impressed with this months box, nothing in it made me go “wow I need this box.” We shall see what next months brings 🙂

vanessa

Sadly not impressed, although I’ve really liked most of their earlier boxes.

The one thing that totally caught my attention in this review – MAC BOX COMING NEXT MONTH.

😍

Julia

This is my third box from them – I signed up with a yearly sub- and it is rapidly becoming one of my favorite beauty boxes. I’ve already found several products from other countries that I had never heard of and loved. I’m really glad I took the chance on this sub.

MzBev

Do you know what happens if you sign up for the yearly sub with them, but say you cancel after 6 months. do they bill you the difference? Did their site say anything about this when you signed up?

Bonnie

I doubt they can do anything to you if they aren’t based in the America if you change your card and don’t continue paying. But they send such good stuff I can’t imagine quitting.

Luna

Unfortunately, you can’t cancel your prepaid sub even though they only charge you monthly. You’re committed to complete the subscription term. I believe you only have a window of around 14 days after you’ve placed your order to cancel the subscription order. However, a work-around is that you can update your credit card info with a closed, but not yet expired card, then when they go to charge your account they won’t be able to. But, you will continue to get emails from them to update your card info. I did this for a couple of months because I wanted to take a brief break from subs, and they said I was past the 14-day window to cancel. Later, I updated my cc info to finish out my subscription.

Bonny Adams

I subbed to this box because of your last review. I chose the yearly option ( so happy the offer this) and did not have to pay up front. I received my first box last week( this box) and was extremely please with their packaging, products and presentation.
Lol, I need to stop reading reviews on NEW boxes. I have so many boxes, but I think this will be one of my favorites.

Kim

I am really confused on the pricing of this sub. I signed up for an annual subscription, last month with the promo code to get the free Illamasqua palette. First they billed me $5.00 , then about a week later they billed me $16.00. This month they billed me $16.00 as well. I am wondering what the $5.00 was for….shipment for the palette?? Also is the Sub $15.00 for an annual or $16.00 ??

Lola

It is $16 per month for annual. The older subscribers were allowed the price of $15. . Price went up a small bit on January 1st. Also price can change according to exchange rates so even if you do an annual, the price may be decided by exchange rates at the time you subscribe.

Bonnie

That’s true. I originally signed up for a year at $15 per month. I had a credit card issue and they couldn’t charge me. No matter how many times I updated in their system. Finally, I just opened a new annual sub at the then-current rate of $14.50 per month. Now I had two, but it was just because I couldn’t get them to take my card for the first one. I’m not that cheap that I would cancel and re-join over 50 cents. I emailed them and explained, and after going through the robo-service a time or two, they cancelled the first one, that wasn’t getting paid for anyway and I just have the one.

Kim

Thanks Lola!

Cindy

I didn’t realize they sent variations. I got a different shampoo.

Lola

They have color variations along with formula variations but I have never had a product variant in the year I have been subscribed.

Lawden

If I order now will I get this box?! I love it!!!

Liz Cadman

Yes, this will be your first box! 🙂

Heather

Does anyone know when you have to sign up to get the NEXT’S month’s box if say you signed up and then canceled thinking you could get just one box and not want to continue a sub?

Lawden

🤗yea!!!! Thank you so much! Just made my day!!!🌈
