Look Fantastic July 2019 “The Hydration Edition” 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 “hydration.”
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!
Elemis Hydra-Balance Day Cream, 20 ml – Estimated Value $25.20 (Buy a full-size 50 ml for $63.00 )
I rather liked this day cream! It has a great herbal scent and absorbs very fast. Because it is so lightweight, it gave my skin some morning moisture without leaving a filmy or greasy film. I liked it so much I mixed a little with my highlighter gel and applied it all over my face for an effortless no-makeup look glow.
Aromatherapy Associates Revive Body Gel, 40 ml – Estimated Value $14.61 (Buy a full-size 200 ml for $54.00)
I thought this was a shower gel, but it is actually a body fragrance gel you can use anywhere! It smells strongly of grapefruit and herbs like rosemary, along with a sharp juniper scent. It was strong but not so much that I couldn’t also wear my perfume and I think that it gave my fragrance a spicy depth that I enjoyed. It wasn’t super moisturizing but still made my skin feel fresh.
Vitamasques Gold Eye Mask – Retail Value $7.90
I so needed these today! My husband and I are in the middle of remodeling our bedroom, and we just moved our bed to another room across the house. The different light patterns are driving me crazy. You can see cars driving by all night long. I have a new set of curtains I plan on installing later tonight, but last night’s sleep was bad, and IT SHOWS. These little pads brought some brightness back to my undereye circles and give my delicate skin a lot of moisture, instantly!
GLOV On-The-Go Hydro Cleanser – Retail Value $15.70
I have a few makeup removers, but none of them are mitts! This little glove is perfect for scrubbing off makeup with just water and the little tag loop is perfect for hanging to dry.
Naobay Illuminating Micellar Water – Listed Value $13.78 (£11.00)
I really like this brand, and I was excited by this big bottle of micellar water! It has a soft scent that reminds me of fresh air and wet flowers. Because it has both micellar water and aloe, it easily removes makeup and gives your skin a little hydration. I might have to keep this at work to gently remove the many swatches I draw all over myself all day!
Eyeko Fat Eye Stick in Gilt, 4 g – Estimated Value $13.33 (Buy a trio for $40, currently sold out)
Finally, our last item is a chubby eye pencil in a lovely burnt bronze shade. It has a smooth and effortless glide application and the metallic pigment is rich and shimmering. Though it is a bit dark for summer, I think this would be perfect for smokey fall eyes.
I thought the color was really pretty!
And this box includes the latest issue of Elle UK Magazine:
The Verdict: Look Fantastic Beauty Box had a nice mix of items this month. I absolutely loved the cleansing water, day cream, and the eye pads. I also enjoyed the aromatherapy gel and I can’t wait to create a dramatic eye look with the pencil. The value of this box is around $86.71 (not including the magazine), which is very nice for a $19 box. I always love the informative booklet and the UK version of Elle. This is a great sub for someone who wants to explore harder-to-find beauty brands.
