Look Fantastic August 2020 Review
Included was a nice booklet with loads of info on our products this month.
BelláPierre Mineral Blush in ‘Amaretto’, 6 g – Estimated Value $30.00 (Buy 9 g for $45.00)
Not a big BelláPierre fan here but I am a sucker for a nice blush. This is a nice darker shade with burnt peach and cocoa tones, but still more of a blush shade than a bronzer for sure. I also tend to prefer pan blushes or even creams, because these loose powders can be a hot mess for a clumsy person like myself. I do really like this color though! It gives enough fresh blush to my cheeks without looking heavy. I prefer it applied with an extra fluffy powder brush!
It has a shimmer that is hard to see in photos.
Caudalie Vinoperfect Radiance Serum Complexion Correcting, 0.3 fl oz – Estimated Value $23.70 (Buy a full-size 1 fl oz for $79.00)
I’m a big Caudalie fan and this is one of my favorite serums. My skin just loves it. This is also a pretty uncomplicated sort of serum compared to many. The big callouts inside are glycerine, squalane, and antioxidant-rich grape extract. I find that whenever I am feeling extra redness on my face, this is always something I reach for.
Eyeko Lash Alert Mascara, 4 mL – Estimated Value $13.00 (Buy a full-size 8 mL for $26.00)
Mascara, mascara. I wish this mascara had been the bright blue color of the tube! The formula is fine and I do like the brush. It coats my lashes and adds enough volume and length. But this is a little bit of a snooze.
AHAVA Mineral Body Lotion in Sea-Kissed , 40 mL – Estimated Value $4.96 (Buy a full-size 250 mL for $31.00)
I am always so torn by AVAHA products because while I usually like the formulas, the scents don’t usually agree with my nose. This lotion is a great example of this. I find the formula great! My hands look smoother and feel so soft! But this scent just bothers me. It’s just sharp and strong, and not at all what I want to smell like.
Mio Sun Drenched Wash, 30 mL – Estimated Value $3.00 (Buy 200 mL for $20.00)
I loved this stuff! This body wash has little gold flecks and a sunny citrus scent! It left my skin feeling clean and refreshed. It also can boast being vegan-friendly and cruelty-free. The cost for the full size of this is also pretty reasonable, so this might be a buy for me.
Percy & Reed Perfectly Perfecting Wonder Balm, 30 mL – Estimated Value $9.60 (Buy a full-size 75 mL for $24.00)
Finally, our last item is a pretty decent sample tube of balm that smoothes strands before styling. Or in my case, just smoothes to smooth! I don’t style my hair often but I find balms like this are so great for flyaways and frizziness. This is a medium weight sort of gel that is easy to finger comb through strands and add instant calmness. It’s also great for sleeker looks where you might want a super smooth finish.
The Verdict: This month’s Look Fantastic Beauty Box had a value of around $84.26 which isn’t bad at all for a $19 box. It was still a little hit or miss for me personally, though I did find some really fun new things like the shower gel and blush, and I surprisingly liked the blush a whole lot more than I thought. I still didn’t find this box all that exciting and I am hoping for more magic next month.
