Ah yes the June Subscription boxes have started to arrive. I really shouldn’t be surprised, as most of them usually hit around mid month. Yet every month I start wondering when they will arrive and then they all seem to come at once. The first of the beauty subscriptions this month is the Look Fantastic Beauty Box. It is a $19 per month subscription if you go month to month, but the cost lowers if you subscribe for a 3, 6 or 12 month subscription. You still pay monthly, which I love, but you pay less. I am on the annual plan so my box costs$16. I have always found this box worth the cost. Currently you can get your first box for $11 (just follow the link below and if you miss Junes, they almost always have a new monthly code up on their site each month for a different discount)
This box comes with a pamphlet and sometimes if there are a lot of variations they don’t always list all of the products. I don’t know if there weren’t any variations this month, but all of the products I received are broken out in the pamphlet, which I really like. I know I can look them up, but I really like having the information right there.
Are you ready to see what is inside this month’s box?
The first item is from a brand I love. It is Nuxe. I am personally in love with their Insta-masques. they have different varieties for different skincare needs and all are fabulous. Oh and if you are interested, Nuxe is currently running their 50% off friends and family sale so now is definitely the time to stock up. This month there is a 100 mL bottle of their Very Rose Micellular water.
Since I love micellular waters as cleansers in the summer I went ahead and opened this one and took a sniff. In the bottle it has a light rose water scent, very light. When tipped out onto the hands the scent fades very quickly. I was a little scared of the Very Rose name, but with a scent this light I don’t think it will be much of a problem.
The second item in the box is also from a brand I love, but not an item that i have used before from the brand. The brand is Eyeko and the box has a clear brow gel. I love that it is clear because anytime i get a tinted brow gel it seems to come out way too dark for me. I love using clear brow gel with a brow pencil rather than going for a tinted brow gel. I may have to try this with today’s makeup. I love Eyeko’s eyeliners and mascaras so it is nice to see something new from the brand.
The third item is from Bubble t. We have had many items from bubble T in the past. I personally love their strawberry rhubarb custard bath fizzy. Admittedly the scent made me want custard. I haven’t tried their body scrub though and this month we received a 100 mL tube of their Watermelon Body Scrub. While towards the end of the summer I am sure I will be saying ‘no more watermelon’, I do like watermelon products in the summertime. i think they smell fresh and summery. By August though I’ll be ready to put them away. I doubt this will last that long though as i am out of body scrub so i can roll this right into the shower. I love when things get timed like that.
One of the items I am a little less sure about is the Lottie London Power foil Golden Hour. It is a loose powder gold eyeshadow. In general I don’t have the best luck with loose powder eyeshadows. Nine times out of ten i will end up spilling more than I use. And just opening this one caused a bit of a glitter cascade. Still I do like gold glitter so I might give it a go and see how it works out for me. And the gold does have a bit of a bronzy look to it and you know I have a hard time resisting the bronzes. Who knows, perhaps this will turn out to be the loose pigment for me.
The last two items in my box I had not heard of before. I really enjoy the mix of new products from brands I love and products I think look interesting from brands I’ve never heard of. The first of these items is Disciple What Spot Dots. They are basically those little dot’s you put over emerging blemishes. These have Salicylic acid which always works wonders at drying out my blemishes and in the summer it is the swear and over production of grease spots that causes most of my spots so I am sure I will have the chance to test it out soon enough.
And finally we have the Gatineau Radiance Gommage. I know from using the Skin and Co Face Gommage that gommage is basically an exfoliation scrub. I do love a good exfoliator and I have never heard of Gatineau before. I actually just finished my ESPA exfoliating scrub so this too is perfectly timed.
I have to say that over all this Look Fantastic Box works well for me. It is skincare heavy, but that is sort of what Look Fantastic is known for and the skincare items they included are all ones I want to try out. They also had two make up items, both of which interest me so that will be fun to play with. I really like that they included information about all of their products this month.
Was this box worth it? I think it was. All of the items are ones I will use and I feel that I got good value for the cost of the box. As for next month, the spoiler is in the back of the booklet. It is a Hyaluronic Hydra Powder from By Terry. I am very excited. Not only is it skincare infused makeup, which I kind of like, but the only thing that i have ever tried from By Terry are the rose scented/flavored lip glosses. They feel fantastic on the lips but taste like you are sucking on perfume. I’m hoping the powder has the same excellent quality without the perfume taste. As it isn’t a lip product, that shouldn’t be a problem. And I am definitely looking forward to trying it out next month. For now, The June 2022 Look Fantastic Beauty box was a pretty good one and I plan on putting each item to the test. I can’t wait to see how they perform.
