Look Fantastic May 2020 “Botanical Edition” Review
Each box comes with a booklet that includes product information and tips for how to use what you got.
Magn!tone London Wipe Out Eco-Friendly Cleansing Cloth – Estimated Value $9.25 (Buy 2 for $18.50)
I love reusable cleansing cloths and this one works super similarly to my Makeup Eraser cloths and also has both the shorter and longer fiber sides for extra cleansing with water alone. It really works and gets rid of even stubborn eye makeup. It also has a super useful little loop to hang it when you are finished so it is dry for next time. Need to deep clean this cloth? Easy, just pop it into the washing machine.
Dr. Lipp Sweet Potato Lip Tint, 3 ml – Estimated Value $4.01 (Buy a full-size 8 ml for $10.70)
Dr. Lipp is one of the most effective lip moisturizers mostly due to the sheep lanolin inside which locks moisture and stays put! This formula has a slight pink tint which adds some gloss and color to your lips while keeping them soft.
It is just barely pink, but it certainly adds a little extra tint to my lips.
Eyeko Brow Gel, 4 ml – Estimated Value $12.50 (Buy a full-size 8 ml for $25.00)
I don’t know if I have ever gotten anything from Eyeko that wasn’t black mascara or black eyeliner, so seeing this brown brow tint gel was kind of exciting! This formula is really interesting because if you pull the wand out and look at it, it is actually filled with brown shimmers rather than a sheer tint. Though it looked nice on my brows, I was surprised at how watery this formula was and it never really seemed to dry. It wasn’t my favorite.
Glad I tried it, but not my favorite brow tint.
Avant Hyaluronic Acid Resurfacing Moisturizer, 50 ml – Full Size! Retail Value $138.00
FYI: This packaging is different than the tub that this formula usually comes in from the manufacturer.
Avant is one of those brands with a wild price tag that I would never pay, but I do usually enjoy. This moisturizer is really nice and has some of my favorite ingredients: shea, niacinamide, hyaluronic acid, sweet almond oil, and more! I would say this is certainly tailored to drier skin but if you are normal or a little oily it might make a good sleep mask option for you! It also has a soft smell that is pleasant and absorbs beautifully.
KORRES Greek Yoghurt Probiotic Superdose Face Mask, 20 ml – Estimated Value $9.80 (Buy 100 ml for $49.00)
I am a KORRES fan. Their formulas always work well and smell nice! Simply apply a thin layer of this mask to your clean face, wait 10-15 minutes (or 30 because you forgot) and then wipe away with a cloth. It left my skin feeling really soft and hydrated, with no film or texture really left behind. This felt especially decadent after a day in the sun!
Balance Me Hyaluronic Plumping Mist, 10 ml – Estimated Value $7.35 (Buy a full-size 30 ml for $22.06)
Finally, our last item is a plumping mist spray. Filled with hyaluronic acid, it is an instant hydration boost to my face. It works great as a toner and I totally recommend stashing it in the fridge for a hot day. I also thought it worked well used as a light fix mist over makeup, as it added a little dewiness.
The Verdict: This was a pretty good Look Fantastic Beauty Box! It has an overall value of around $180.91 which is crazy for a $19 box, though the vast majority of that value is in the Avant cream. I really enjoy makeup remover cloths and found the lip balm, mist, and mask to be really great products for my routine. I didn’t love the brow product, but 5 out of 6 isn’t bad!
