Look Fantastic March 2020 “Unconstricted Edition” Review
Each box comes with a booklet that includes product information and tips for how to use what you got.
Grow Gorgeous Strengthening Hair & Scalp Mask, 30 ml – Estimated Value $4.50 (Buy a full-size 200 ml for $30.00, on sale for $22.50)
Ohhhh this stuff smells so good! Like, expensive salon good! I don’t use a ton of hair masks, but this one was calling my name. I applied it to my damp hair (just the ends!) and waited 5 minutes per the instructions. My hair smelled so great and my strands had so much shine after I rinsed and air-dried my hair. I feel like I could have left this on even longer and I will try that next time when I finish off this sample.
MÁDARA Time Miracle Wrinkle Resist Eye Cream, 15 ml – Retail Value $46.60
I don’t know about all of you, but stress absolutely freaks my face out, maybe even worse than lack of sleep or a few too many glasses of wine. And with everything going on out there right now, I have been stressed! Sadly, it shows. My undereye area is looking dull and darker than I have ever seen it. While this cream can’t get my mental acrobatics in order, it certainly did brighten up that skin under my eyes! The heavier formula absorbed rapidly and left the skin looking plumper and just happier in general. This will be living by my nightstand until it’s gone!
Hairburst Healthy Hair Vitamins, 30 day supply – Estimated Value $16.65 (Buy a 60 day supply for $33.30)
I have thick hair that grows rapidly, but I did cut it off last year and something about summertime always makes me want to have super long mermaid hair. I am happy to add these hair vitamins to my daily routine, especially because they are yummy. They remind me of these British pastille candies my grandmother used to bring back from her travels: not too sweet, gummy but firm. Yum!
Rodial Bee Venom Cleansing Balm, 20 ml – Estimated Value $15.00 (Buy a full-size 100 ml for $75.00)
Ok, so bee venom sounds a little scary, especially for a facial product! Apparently it is an anti-aging power ingredient though, so pour it all over my face! The texture is runny, and it honestly feels a lot like a cleansing oil. Thankfully, it didn’t burn and it did indeed cleanse my skin wonderfully. There was no massive change in terms of appearance, but it sure did feel nice to the touch!
Rituals The Ritual of Ayurveda Shower Oil – Retail Value $4.28 (Buy 200 ml for $11.40)
I love oil products, so this bottle of shower oil was a nice surprise. I am not sure I love the scent, but it is a blend of rose and almond, though I can’t really smell either. It smells a little sharp, but still feminine. The oil turns a little foamy when you massage it onto damp skin, and leaves behind lots of moisture!
Elizabeth Arden Superstart Skin Renewal Booster, 5 ml – Estimated Value $11.17 (Buy a full-size 30 ml for $67.00)
This is a lightweight gel that is meant to be a step between your cleanser and serum. It absorbs almost immediately and doesn’t leave behind much of a texture. Containing probiotics, vitamins, minerals, and botanicals, it is meant to help retain your skin’s moisture barrier and give it the extra boost it needs to self-repair. I honestly didn’t notice a huge difference here, but it might be something I would see more results with over time.
BellaPierre Kiss Proof Lip Creme in ‘Incognito’, 3.8 g – Full Size! Retail Value $26.60
I am a little confused about this product since it wasn’t mentioned in the booklet at all. It seems like it was a little bonus item! I really like the pinky nude shade and though this is one of those true matte finishes that my dry lips find challenging, it is certainly pretty enough to wear this spring, even if I add on gloss!
The Verdict: I liked this Look Fantastic Beauty Box. It has an overall value of around $124.80 which is great for a $19.00 box. I do find myself still missing the magazine, but this was a great Look Fantastic box, and probably one of the better ones I have gotten in the last year. I loved the hair vitamins, cleanser, eye cream, and that bee venom cleanser so much. The shower gel is also really nice and the bonus lippie was a nice touch.
