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!
Philip Kingsley Elasticizer – 40 ml Value $11.20
This Elasticizer is designed to be used on damp hair for 20 minutes before shampooing. It’s a deep conditioning treatment you can use twice a week. I’ve sampled this before and didn’t see amazing results, so I thought I’d try it again – still nothing substantial. I’m wondering if it works better on certain hair types? Let me know if you’ve tried it and have any tips!
Omorovicza Ultramoor Mud Mask – 5 ml Value $12.50
I LOVE this ingredient-conscious brand! This mud mask is designed to help clear out pores and firm skin. It dries in under 10 minutes, and it has a very gentle exfoliation when you rinse it off.
Eve Lom Cleanser & Muslin Cloth – 20 ml Value $24
Even Lom is a fabulous luxe brand I’m always happy to see in subscription boxes! (It rarely happens, though!)
This cleansing balm is a beauty cult-classic for good reasons – it makes cleaning your face feel like a luxe beauty ritual.
And it comes with a muslin cloth to use with it:
If you aren’t familiar with how to use this cleanser, here are the instructions:
-Use the cleanser once a day in the evening for normal to dry skin types, and twice daily in the morning and evening for congested skin.
-Apply a small amount to dry fingertips, then gently massage across a dry face and neck until the cleanser is evenly distributed.
-Saturate the Muslin Cloth in hot water and squeeze off any excess.
-Fold it into a square and work it across the face and neck in small, circular movements to eliminate all traces of cleanser, dirt, and makeup.
-Rinse the face and cloth thoroughly in cool water, pressing the fabric against the skin to complete the cleanse for a closed-pore look and feel.
I love the natural essential oil scent of eucalyptus, and the cleanser was gentle on my skin, and great for removing eye makeup, too. (Plus a solid cleanser makes it easier for travel!)
Mane ‘N Tail Hoofmaker Original Hand And Nail Therapy – 2 oz Value $2.26
I know this is a favorite brand for lots of peeps – but I’m just not the biggest fan of the packaging/branding! The formula itself is light, absorbs quickly, and is subtly fragrant.
Lord & Berry Strobing Pencil – .02 oz Travel Size Value $10
This little pencil is a creamy formula that is easy to blend, and it’s perfect for precision highlight areas like the inner corners of your eyes, your cupid’s bow, etc.
Here it is swatched:
Aromatherapy Associates Support Lavender & Peppermint Bath & Shower Oil – 9 ml Value $11.95
This is another brand I love seeing in subscription boxes! You can add this oil to your bath, or apply it to your skin before a shower. And I love lavender, so this scent is lovely!
And since this is a birthday box, Look Fantastic included some candy, too!
(Make sure to check your box for your coupon code for the Look Fantastic Advent Calendar!)
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 $71.91 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.)
