I recently received the August Look Fantastic Beauty Box and today I'm sharing my thoughts on the box with you, I love Look Fantastic and have used their site for many years to buy my beauty products so I had high hopes for their beauty box and couldn't wait to find out what was inside the August box and I have to say I'm not disappointed.
The Look Fantastic Beauty Box* have a new box each month but unlike some other beauty boxes you don't have to choose a monthly subscription and can purchase your box on a monthly basis if you prefer but if subscriptions are your thing you can also order a monthly subscription of 3, 6 or 12 months, without a subscription the box the cost of the box is £15 and with a monthly subscription the cost of the box varies and are as follows
3 Month Plan - £13.33 per box saving you £5
6 Month Plan - £12.50 per box saving you £15
12 Month Plan - £11.25 per box saving you £45
The first item in the box is the Omorovicza Queen Of Hungary Mist ( 1.8ml worth 45p) I have never tried the brand Omorovicza before but I have heard a lot of good things about them, the mist is described as a purifying and hydrating toner perfect for a post cleanse toner or a mid day pick me up. I like to use a hydrating toner which I spritz onto my face after using an acid tone and although this is a sample size I am looking forward to trying it and should be able to use it a few times.
The next product in the box is the Beauty Works 10 in 1 Miracle Spray (25ml worth £2.39) This is the first of 2 hair products in the box and it claims to be a 10 in 1 spray which eliminates frizz, restores shine, nourishes, replenishes oil, protects from heat, detangles, conditions, prevents split ends, enhances natural body and repairs dry/damaged hair. I like trying out hair products, I suffer from oily hair and often shy away from trying out products as they can be expensive only for me to find they make my hair even more oily so for me to be able to try out 2 new hair products is brilliant and I'm really looking forward to trying them both out.
Next is the other hair product in the box the Caviar CC 10 in 1 Cream (25ml worth £8.42) One of my favourite hair products is a cream product which also has a variety of different benefits so I am looking forward to finding out if this is a contender to replace it, the CC cream is paraben and sulphate free which are both things I look for when choosing hair products, I am really looking forward to trying this out.
Next up is the Bella Pierre Cosmetics Shimmer Powder (full size product worth £12.99) this is one of 2 make up products in the box and is a lovely shimmery powder as the name suggests and is in the shade Snowflake which is a nice wearable shade that I'm sure will suit most skin tones. I will use this as a highlight for my cheekbones and brow bone and am going to try it on my eyes too, I think it could look nice as an inner corner highlight.
Staying with make up next up is the Rimmel Wake Me Up Wonder'full Mascara (full size worth £7.99) The August boxes all contain a full size Rimmel product and theres 4 different products varying from box to box so you could also get the Scandaleyes XX-Treme Volume & Length Mascara, the Provocalips 16 hour lip colour or the Wake Me Up Wonder'full mascara with Argan oil so it's a complete surprise which Rimmel product you will get. The wand on this mascara is hourglass shaped which seems to be a popular shaped wand at the moment across brands. I'm really looking forward to trying this mascara and if it's as good as the wake me up foundation I'll be happy.
Last but by no means least is the Eve Lom Cleanser plus a muslin cloth (30ml size worth £16.50) I have tried this cleanser before and it is lovely, it's a couple of years ago now since I tried but I did really like it so I am looking forward to using it again, I'm a real skin care geek as I'm sure you'll know so this product excites me greatly and with the sample being £16 it pays for the price of this months box which is fantastic.
I am extremely impressed with the contents of the August box, there isn't a product I am disappointed with and wouldn't use, I am going to be taking some of the products on my up coming summer holiday as they are brilliant sizes for travel, overall I am super impressed with the box and can't wait to use everything in it. The box is worth £48.74 and costs £15 which is brilliant and it's a great way of trying out products you might not have tried before, there's make up, hair care and skin care too so a good mix of products, overall I think it's a great box and I'm super impressed. Next months box is a special edition first birthday box so I am super excited to see what's in that box and if it's as good as this one it'll be fabulous.
