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!

Talika Bubble Mask Bio Detox – Value $8.50

This charcoal sheet mask foams/bubbles when you put it on. It’s designed to both moisturize your skin and purify and unclog pores. I found it to be gentle on my skin (and I liked that I only had to wear it for 10 minutes!)

Ahava Dead Sea Water Mineral Body Lotion – (Travel Size 40 ml) Value $10

This lotion absorbs quickly, and left my skin feeling super soft – it’s an amazing formula. The scent is a powder/floral fragrance. Not my favorite, but I don’t mind it either.

Monuskin Night Renewal Complex – 30 ml Value $29.75

This skin cream is half the size of the full size version! It’s designed to smooth fine lines, restore firmness, and prevent premature aging. It’s hydrating, non-greasy, and left my skin feeling so soft. (I liked the scent, too.)

Dr Lipp Elderberry Lip Balm – 8 ml Value $9

This lip balm is moisturizing, high-shine, and provides a sheer berry color. The color wears off almost immediately, but the shine lasts for a while. (FYI – it is a bit sticky.)

PRAI and Throat Decolletage Cream – 15 ml Value $14.97

This cream is designed to diminish the appearance of skin “crepiness, double chins, droopy jowls and turkey neck.” That’s a big promise! I found the formula to be a bit of a cream/gel hybrid (it has a bit of a bounce to it – like jello). It is fragrant, but the scent disappears quickly, and the cream absorbs quickly, too. I can’t confirm if any of those big skincare promises are accurate, but I like having a product specifically for the neck and decolletage area!

Pixi By Petra Fresh Face Blush in Beach Rose – .16 oz Value $8

This blush has good pigment, a silky feel, and a matte finish. But the color is definitely more of a bronzer on me. Here it is swatched:

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 $80.22 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.)

To Wrap Up:

Can you still get this box if you sign up today? (This page will let you know what box is currently available.)

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

  1. I’m kind of a skincare fanatic/hoarder, so I’m pretty pleased with this month. I’ve rosacea and seems like boxes always send physical exfoliants-happy to see none! I see I’m in the minority, but I actually really like the AHVA lotion . The blush isn’t for me and I’d have preferred the clear balm, but definitely still got my money’s worth! The magazine is a nice bonus for me (I really appreciated the sustainability issue), as I look forward to the book recommendations it provides.

  2. I’ve got this box, and seen this box, where is November box?

  3. I’ve been getting the LF Beauty box for a couple of years. I’m not thrilled with every box, but I am with most of them which is why I still sub. And, love their boxes. I reuse them and take them to work. The girls love them.

    Can someone please tell me what is up with the AHAVA hand cream that shows up in boxes. It smells horrible and I don’t understand why subs keep sending it out. Actually got a 3 pack from FabFitFun for some reason. I threw it away.

    • I love look fantastic also I’m on year 2. I can’t stand the scent of the AHAVA hand cream, I have 2 of the body ones and they are ok but nothing to brag about. I’m guessing the sub boxes get good deals because I don’t think many are purposely buying it.

  4. The October box was my first one. I loved most items in ut. The ELLE magazine was useless and was thrown out and the AHAVA body lotion had a very disappointing fragrance and was nothing special. I used it but am unimpressed. Everything else in the box was great! I’ll see what happens next month.

  5. I just subscribed to this box and cannot wait until my box arrives! Thank you for posting Look Fantastic, as I would have never found it without your posts & this site!

  6. Liz,
    The full size Monu Night Renewal is 50ml so this was more than half size, I’m going to try it this week and hope for the best most Monu skin items work well for me.

    I still love this box.
