Look Fantastic Clean Hero Edit Review
Here is the info booklet for the box.
Priori Skincare LCA fx141 Hand and Body Replenisher, 0.6 oz – Estimated Value $5.25 (Buy the 4 oz version for $35.00)
This body lotion is pretty neat- along with some standard hydrating ingredients. This actually has lactic acid to exfoliate your skin and antioxidant-rich vitamins A, C, and E. Because of the chemical exfoliants this can make your skin more sensitive to the sun, but it also can help with discoloration and hyperpigmentation. This lotion was lightweight, and since I haven’t been taking care of my hands the way I take care of my face, I’m intrigued about the long-term benefits.
Juice Beauty Stem Bamboo Pore Refining Mask, 0.5 oz – Estimated Value $9.00 (buy the 2 oz version for $36.00)
This isn’t your typical mud mask! The first two ingredients are actually aloe and glycerin, so this is mask is much more hydrating than clay-based masks usually are. This is made with bamboo charcoal and kaolin clay, and it also has apple juice (that’s a unique one!), shea butter, and bentonite clay. The end result is a mask that helps with excess oil and acne, while not drying out your skin. I enjoyed the experience of using this, and appreciate that the formula was easy to wash off (sometimes clay masks love to stick around).
Aurelia Cell Revitalise Night Moisturiser, 1 oz – Retail Value $48.00
This moisturizer has a ton of botanicals to treat your skin- think baobab which has omega-3’s, antioxidants from rosehip, and fatty acids from borage and avocado oils. This has a pleasant herbal scent thanks to the neroli, lavender, rose, and mandarin which was relaxing to smell, and all of these botanicals are combined with shea butter and aloe for a deeply moisturizing night cream. The nice texture with the herbal scent made for a really pleasant experience, and this felt like a treat to use. Also, I love that the cost of this moisturizer is more than the cost of the entire box.
Alterna Clinical Densifying Foam Conditioner, 1.5 oz – Estimated Value $6.70 (buy the 8.5 oz version for $38.00)
This was interesting- it’s a foam conditioner you apply to wet hair and then rinse away (from the name I pictured more of a dry shampoo/dry conditioner kind of thing). Because of the foam, it’s incredibly lightweight, and it’s formulated to help with thinning hair. Unfortunately, my hair type needs a lot more moisture than this provides, but I think it’s an interesting concept and one that will be more appreciated by others.
Korres Greek Yoghurt Foaming Cleanser, 20 ml – Estimated Value $3.47 (buy the 150 ml version for $26.00)
I love the Korres Greek yogurt line (their face mask from this line is one of my all-time favorites), and this cleanser will probably be really enjoyed by those who like a creamy cleanser. This lathered up nicely without feeling like it was stripping away moisture from my skin, and I like to think the probiotics from the yogurt do a little something extra when I’m washing my face.
Verso Micellar Water, 1 oz – Estimated Value $5.97 (buy the 6.7 oz version for $40.00)
I’ve tried multiple Verso products through various subscription boxes, and I’ve liked all of them. This micellar water is new to me, but this is a product I use on a daily basis so I was happy to give it a shot. This gentle cleansing water is made with niacinamide, turmeric, and hyaluronic acid, and I found it to be slightly hydrating and effective. It got the job done, but not enough to make me consider purchasing the pricy full-size bottle.
Daily Concepts Dry Brush – Retail Value $18.00
I love dry brushing! If you haven’t done it before, you sweep the brush against dry skin in long strokes, and that helps with both lymphatic draining and exfoliating your body. Doing it before a shower is especially pleasant, and this brush has some massaging nubs mixed with the bristles that felt great on my skin.
The Organic Pharmacy Lip and Eye Cream, 10 ml – Retail Value $49.00
This cream showed up at a really good time- I’ve been dealing with cracks in the corners of my lips, and I can’t find my go-to lip treatment anywhere. Even though this cream can be used for both your eyes and lips, I’m using it just as a lip cream because I don’t like using multi-use products around my eyes (I don’t get styes or eye infections frequently and I’d like to keep it that way). This cream is definitely a cream- it goes on white, so it’s not a product you apply to your lips and head out the door with. The first three ingredients are some of my favorite ones- aloe, squalane, and glycerin. Those hydrating emollient ingredients are paired with botanical extracts like bilberry and fennel, and the overall effect is nourishing to my cracked skin. You know how sometimes your skin will burn when you apply products where the skin is slightly broken? That wasn’t an issue here at all. This isn’t *quite* as reparative as my go-to lip treatment, but it showed up right when I needed it and it helped out with treating my lips. This would be a good cream if you have dry skin around your eyes, too, so I think the name is pretty apt. The price is on the higher end for a product like this, but I appreciate that most of the ingredients come from organic farming.
The Verdict: I thought this was a well-done box by Look Fantastic. There was a good mix of skincare, haircare, and body care items from both familiar and new brands, and that is one of the things I love about boxes like these. Plus, two of the full-size products cost more on their own than the cost of this entire box- talk about a deal. When you add it all up, everything inside that cheerful pink box totals $145.39, which is a few dollars shy of the promised $150 value but more than three times the cost of the box.
