Look Fantastic June 2019 “Around the World” Review
Each box comes with a booklet that tells you more about the products included with tips on how to use them. This month’s theme is “Around the World.”
I always love keeping Look Fantastic boxes around to store makeup, jewelry, and other important things in because they are always so sturdy and beautiful.
We also received a few UK exclusive promos.
Now, on to the items!
SVR Topialysie Palpebral Eyelid Cream, 15 ml – FULL SIZE! Retail Value $19.80
This is a pretty specific cream. Meant for itchy or irritated eyelids, you might not have much interest in this unless you suffer from random flare-ups on delicate facial skin. I have actually had issues with itchy eyelids only once and it was AWFUL. I would have been happy to have a similar product back then. You can also use this on any delicate or inflamed skin, so even if you aren’t dealing with itchiness, this will still be a great sensitive cream to keep around. I get eczema spots on my legs and I tried applying a little of this there. It absolutely helped with redness and calmed the spots down for a few hours.
Ecooking Peeling Mask, 15ml – Estimated Value $14.61 (Buy a full size 50 ml for $48.70)
This mask is full of AHAs such as lactic, salicylic, and glycolic acids. These powerful acids are amazing at exfoliating dead skins cells without being abrasive. If you have sensitive skin, I highly recommend trying this out for 2-3 minutes your first time using it, as the tingling sensation can be a little intense. I let it on for 6 minutes before washing it away and found my skin felt so much smoother. With any AHA, use sunscreen after usage. Your freshly exfoliated skin can be especially sensitive to sunshine!
This little sample vial is small, but a little of this serum goes a long way! Containing a replica of a naturally occurring protein, this formula aims to replicate those proteins anti-aging powers. I used this under my moisturizer before bed and I was really pleased with how my skin looked in the morning. It was visibly smoother and had a great glow to it. Since I have been having a foundation-free spring, this is exactly the look I aspire to! I am looking forward to trying this out for a few more days.
Bumble & Bumble Surf Spray, 15 ml – Estimated Value $3.24 (buy a full size 125 ml for $27.00)
This might be the smallest spray sample I have ever seen! It is so tiny! I would guesstimate that I might get two uses out of this on my thick hair, though I do have a ton of hair. I own the full size of this product and I do really love it. It is one of those perfect beachy sprays that gives my hair a carefree wave and tons of volume. This spray does have salt, which many people avoid due to dryness, dislike of the salty texture, or if they are trying to protect their hair color. If you are looking for a salt-free alternative that works just as well, give OUAI Wave Spray a try!
Korres Olive Soap, 125 gr – FULL SIZE! Retail Value $7.50
My husband LOVES bar soap. It is his thing. Every time I bring a bar home, he immediately has to stash it in our bathroom and take a shower to try it out. He really loved this bar! This doesn’t shock me in the least, because I have noticed he has a track record of enjoying Korres products. They are effective and no-frills, which is totally in line with his style. He really loved how moisturizing this bar was, but marveled at how his skin still felt so clean without feeling totally stripped. He and I both enjoyed the earthy olive scent that stayed on his skin for hours after.
Filorga Lift Structure, 0.23 fl oz – Estimated Value $12.52 (buy a full size 1.69 fl oz for $92.00)
Any cream with hyaluronic acid is something I look forward to. I love the instant and long-lasting hydration benefits from this ingredient! This cream also contains collagen, which is one of those foundational ingredients to any worthwhile skincare routine. While I didn’t notice any super drastic changes after 2 days of use (aside from awesome skin hydration!) I have a feeling this might be one of those creams to try out over a week or so. I look forward to experimenting further.
And this box includes the latest issue of Elle UK Magazine:
The Verdict: Look Fantastic Beauty Box had some great products from around the globe this month. I always enjoy this box because it has a nice mix of familiar brands and then new ones I have never heard of. It was really nice to get two full size products (the eye cream and soap) as well as a nice expensive serum sample! I am really excited to try different combinations of these items in my routine,and my husband has a new cherished bar of soap. Whats not to love? The value of this box is around $90.55 (not including the magazine), which is very nice for a $19 box.
