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!


Bellapierre Shimmer Roll Champagne – 2 g (FULL SIZE?) Estimated Value $8.33

This is a multiuse shimmer (eyes, face, body) in a warm, champagne gold. The shimmer/pigment is great with this formula, but it’s a loose powder in rollerball form:

If something is a rollerball, that usually means it is a liquid form, so this was a weird choice. I didn’t love the application because you then have to blend out a loose powder. It would be much better to apply a loose powder properly with a brush, to begin with.

So just a heads up that this formula goes on dry – you will need a good primer before applying.

Here it is swatched:

Trifle Cosmetics Sugar Pear Sublime Lip Scrub – FULL SIZE! Value $17.95

This sugar scrub smells exactly like what you’d hope a sugar pear scrub would smell like – sweet and decadent, but not artificial. The oils are very moisturizing, too.

(If you like this item, I recommend checking out our So Susan Color Curate reviews!)

Dr. PawPaw Original Multipurpose Clear Balm – 10 ml Value $5

I first discovered Dr. PawPaw through GlossyBox and I love this balm! First, it’s just fun to say the name! And even better, it’s an all-natural, fragrance-free, multi-use balm!

ELEMIS Pro-Collagen Marine Cream – 0.5 oz Value $40

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

This is one of my favorite items in the box. It’s a luxe skincare brand, the sample is a good size (the full-size version is 50 ml), and I actually prefer the tube container of the sample over the jar container of the full-size version.

The formula is rich but not greasy, and super hydrating. If I could change anything, I’d remove the fragrance, but it doesn’t bother me and fades quickly.

Caudalie Vinosource SOS Serum – 10 ml Value $16.33

This is a lightweight, oil-free formula. The serum is designed to restore its moisture balance and is ideal for people with dry skin.

My skin is still sensitive and dry thanks to the Winter weather, so this was good timing for me. The serum absorbs almost immediately and was gentle on my skin, too.

Filorga Meso Mask – 15 ml Value $17.35

This mask is designed to enhance the skin by improving luminosity and radiance, treating wrinkles and erasing signs of fatigue. It’s a creamy mask you apply to your face, eye contour, neck, and décolletage. Leave on for 15-20 minutes, then remove with a damp cloth.

I didn’t notice any major differences after using it, but my skin felt clear and soft.

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 $104.96 (not counting the magazine). I think that’s great for a $19 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 really liked the skincare this month, and even with the Bellapierre roll-on being a miss for me, this box is still a hit!

  1. I just received mine today! I moved in November and updated my address on the website. It didn’t take. So I did it again. Both tines it showed that it was changed until I got my shipping email! Finally I did a chat session with customer service. She was great and told me that she had fixed everything. I got the shipping email for March –old address!!! March was my final month as I did the annual subscription a year ago. I had to cancel. The VERY cool thing though — they refunded my last 2 months to PayPal.

    TL/DR–Changing your address is an impossible nightmare.

  2. This is my first box from Look Fantastic. I really like it. I think that the value is pretty good too. I also not tried any of these products. I especially enjoy that we received a product from Elemis too. I’ve been wanting to try them for a while now.

  3. Petrolatum is the first ingredient in the PawPaw.

    Petrolatum, or petroleum jelly, is a semisolid mixture derived from refining crude oil. 

    • Exactly why I’d never buy products like that

  4. In the booklet, they also recommend leaving the Filorga mask on overnight, so that’s how I’ve been using it, and I really like it

    • Thank you for the tip! And I clearly need to do a better job at reading the booklet! 🙂

      • I never know how to use most of this stuff, so I really rely on the booklets 😂

        • What’s funny for me is that I assume I know how to use a product solely based on its name, but when I read the inserts I can’t even tell you how many times I’ve been like, “Ohhhhh…” then I have to move the product into a different product-type stash. 😀
