Unboxing the Look Fantastic Beauty Box for November 2022

This month’s Look Fantastic Box has the theme of Party Prep. Usually i don’t pay too much attention to the themes but this month it seems to relate. This Box is $19 a month if you are on a month to month plan, I get it for less with an annual subscription. So I pay $16 per month ($17.59 when all is said and done) and while some boxes are better than others, I have always felt the box is worth what I pay.

The first item out of the box this month was hard to photograph because it is metallic and just reflects light like crazy. It is the Color Wow Dream Coat in a travel size. It is a product i really enjoy using to smooth down my hair and make it glossy without flyaways. I will say though that i have thick hair and I spray very little. If you have fine or thin hair, it can weigh down your hair if you use too much so go cautiously. Because my hair is so thick it works fantastically well for me. I love that it is travel sized too because I tend to use this sot of thing when i am traveling more than I do at home.

I think that might be because I travel for holidays though. And holidays have lots of events. regardless, the travel size is fabulous.

The next item in my box, I can’t say i am all that excited by. In fact i will probably pass it along to someone else. It is the Bondi Sands Pure Sleep Tanning Mask. My skin picks up the sun well. Occasionally I will use a tanning product on my legs so they match the rest of my body but there is no point in me using a tanning product on my face. I simply don’t need it. I do like Bondi Sands though and when i use tanning products on my legs, they are the brand I go for. So good brand, just not something for me.

The third item in the box is a primer. And you know how much I love primers. This one is from Avant. I am not entirely sure how i feel about Avant to be honest. Their products are usually really nice but usually very over priced. And I never see them anywhere but in subscription boxes. Don’t get me wrong their lip balm was fantastic and I really enjoyed their moisturizer. I am also really looking forward to trying out the Avant Pro Perfecting Collagen Touch eclat Primer that is in this box. I am just not sure how i feel about the brand in general. I am pleased to have this in my box though. Especially since it is a makeup item and I have never tried anything but their skincare.

Next up we have a six pan Mini Reloaded Velvet Rose eyeshadow palette from Makeup Revolution. I really like the browns and golds in the palette and looking at it I can see several looks that would be quick and easy to create with it. (I opened the lid so the plastic wouldn’t glare). I also think this small palette would be good for travel as well so I am very happy to see it,.

The final two items in the box this month are tools. The first is an eyeshadow brush. There were options this month. I received the Luvia Cream Shader brush. I have used brushes from this brand before and find them quite nice. Plus I can always use another shader brush It is the final item that I am really happy to have in my box this month.

It sounds silly but I use (and tend to lose) these clips a lot. These are the Brushworks No Crease hair Clips. While I haven’t tried the Brushworks versions I have these creaseless style hair clips from about four other brands floating around my house. They are amazing for pulling back my bangs while I am doing my makeup. They are also an item that no matter how many times I purchase them, they always seem to disappear. I really like them and am thrilled to welcome two more into my collection.

And so that was my Look Fantastic Box for November 2022. Pretty much everything goes along with the theme of party prep, but to be honest it is less about the theme and more about the fact that besides the facial tanning mask every other item is one that I will definitely use. For me that is way more important than the actual theme. For me this was a great box this month. Was it worth the cost i paid for it? Definitely. Well done Look Fantastic.

Unboxing the Look Fantastic Box for October 2022

And so we wind up the October subscription Boxes with the Look Fantastic Box. It is a $19 per month subscription box although if you sign up for a longer subscription you can get the box for less. I have an annual membership (but still pay monthly) so my box is $16. While some months are better than others I have never regretted the annual membership and I have always found that the box exceeds my $16 cost.

This month has been interesting with Look Fantastic. When they released their advent calendar i swooped in and ordered it right away. I think that they started sending them out because I keep getting e-mails saying mine is delayed due to shipping. Since I thought the Advent calendars wouldn’t ship until November I wasn’t looking for it and at first thought my subscription box was delayed. But it is the Advent Calendar. I do hope it comes soon because I want to share it with you so that if you are looking into getting it yourself you can see it before you decide. But we shall see.

In addition to boxes and advent calendars Look Fantastic has an on-line store. They have deals going pretty much every month. Currently they have 50% off Christophe Robin products. It is one of my favorite hair care brands so I thought I’d share that with you. It is well worth signing up for e-mail announcements so you can stock up on some favorites for less.

But now it is time to jump into the box. The first item I smelled before i opened the box. It was actually the spoiler for this month and until I smelled it I forgot all about it. This month you could either get the Rituals of Sakura candle or room spray in your box. I received the candle. The candle is adorably cute and comes in a frosted glass candle holder. I don’t know why I find this size candle so adorable but I do. The scent is fantastic. I had the body wash from this Rituals line and adored it. This candle scent is exactly the same. As it gets colder and winter really settles in I know i will enjoy this spring time scent as a reminder of warmer weather to return. especially as it is supposed to be a brutal winter this year. Even without that it smells fantastic.

The second Item in my box is a deluxe travel size of the Korres Wild Rose Sleeping Facial Night Cream. It is a 20mL size so I should be able to get several uses out of it. My skin has always done well with Korres products actually. I am picky about my rose scented products but Korres always keeps their scents kind of mild so it should be fine. I can’t smell anything through the metal seal. At the moment I will be leaving the seal on, however I am almost finished with my current skincare trials so I might rotate this in as a night mask once i write up that review.

Next in the box we have something from Paradoxx. I am happy to see that it is a different product from the one I seemed to have received in every other subscription box. I ended up with three or four different sized containers of the same deep conditioning hir mask from Paradoxx. while I love that hair mask, it will be nice to try something different from the brand. This is the Moisture Conditioner. It is, well, a conditioner. It is 50mL so I should be able to get a feel for the product with several washes. I don’t like that it is just the conditioner. I like to try paired shampoo and conditioners. I’m sure at some point I will have a lone shampoo i can try it with. At the moment I have used up all of my single shampoos. I went on a testing rampage with samples of hair care products in September so there are few remaining in my collection.

There is one makeup item in this month’s Box and it is a highlighter in a magnetic pan from Luvia Cosmetics. I know Luvia is a clean and vegan brand and I believe i have tried something from the brand before, although what that is currently escapes me. I am always happy to test out new to me brands though and i love that the pan can easily slip into a magnetic palette.

There was a variation in the next product. This month you could either receive a makeup brush cleanser or a makeup sponge cleanser, both from ISOClean. I received the makeup sponge cleanser which I am really happy with.

Before I left I cleaned all of my makeup brushes but forgot about the makeup sponges so when I traveled I just packed a new one and when I got back I had a new one from Shop Miss A come in that I wanted to test out, so I just started using that. So I have to sadly admit to a bag of very dirty makeup sponges that need to be washed. That may be tonight’s post dinner activity. So at least i will get to put the cleanser to the test very quickly.

And finally this month’s box came with a two pack of the Magnitone Wipeout Swipes. I love these things. I have a bunch of them and have been using some of them for over a year to take the place of disposable cotton rounds. This far they have washed up well and none have reached the point where they can’t be used. When I wash them I have a net bag. I just put them in the net bag, close it and toss it in the wash. After i spread them out to air dry rather than put them through the tumble dryer, but they have really lasted and I am very happy to have two new ones to add to the collection.

This month the October Box did come with a pamphlet. while everything was listed and there is a QVC code with each in case you want to order the full size, other than the name and value of the size received in the box there is no real information about any of the products. There is a two page spread on applying highlighter and then a short article about the benefits of scents in the home with a short rose oil ingredients break down. All of which is nice, but I would prefer if there was just a little bit more information on the actual products themselves. There is a sneak peek for the November box which is the most exciting thing in the pamphlet actually.

Next month’s box will have wither an Avant Pro Perfecting Collagen Touch Eclat Primer or a Colour Wow Dream Coat Spray. While I tend to think Avant is a bit over priced, I really do like their products and wouldn’t mind trying out their primer. I have used the dream coat before and in fact keep a bottle handy. It is fantastic for making your hair look shiny and glossy without weighing it down. Personally i wouldn’t mind either option and I am thrilled that one or the other will be arriving In the November Box.

And so my darlings this has been the October box. I believe this is my last subscription box for October and quite honestly I am happy to end on a high note. Tonight i will give the Iso Clean a try, I will probably light the candle to see how far the scent travels if nothing else and I will add the Magnitone wipes to my collection of reusable makeup wipes. the other three products will have to wait for their first trial but they will be used. As always I ask myself if I find this subscription box worth keeping. And with Look Fantastic I always say yes. This month it is a definite yes. Every item inside is one that I will use. For me, that makes this Look Fantastic box well worth the cost.


Unboxing the September 2022 Look Fantastic Box

Look Fantastic is a $19 per month beauty box based in the UK. With an annual subscription you can shave a few dollars off the price and still pay on a monthly basis instead of paying for the entire year at once. This is what I do. I have had this subscription for several years now and while some months in a subscription box are always better than others, I have never been disappointed by this box. They also have an annual advent calendar which always sells out fast. For subscribers the calendar is on sale now and for non subscribers it will go on sale October 1st. It sells out every year. Usually I miss it but this year I actually jumped on it when it was up for pre release so I will be getting that this year.

I like to only get one advent calendar for myself each year. Occasionally I will cave and get a second smaller one. But the issue is there are so many really great ones out there that i often debate which one I want to pick up and then find the Look Fantastic one has sold out. This year i decided to just go ahead with it because the spoilers looked good so I made the decision early.

But that won’t come until November. However soon they will be available for all so if you are thinking about it, those are the dates.

But back to this month’s box. Recently Look Fantastic has been playing around with the layout of the brochure they put in the box. They have always had articles about various topics. They actually have one about Collagen this month that I am looking forward to reading. They articles break down popular ingredients and other skincare and beauty themed issues. The articles on skincare topics are fantastic if you are just getting into skincare and trying to get a handle on a very large and complex range of products and ingredients. And as September is Skincare Awareness month it is all about skincare. Which I like.

However they don’t really break out the products in the pamphlet any more which I’m not too crazy about. they have one page showing what was in the box with the one variation item and that’s it. No info about them. Which I sort of miss. They do have the spoiler for the October box though and it is very exciting, well at least to me. In the October box you will receive either a Ritual of Sakura candle (25 g) or The Ritual of Sakura room spray (50 mL) The Sakura line is Rituals cherry blossom scent and I loved the body wash from that line and am looking forward to either the candle or the room spray. Actually after trying out the body wash I thought about buying the room spray simply because how fantastic the bathroom smelled after my shower. I would be happy with either one actually.

This Month’s Look Fantastic I was looking forward to mostly because of the spoiler from last month too actually. It was the Ren Ready Steady Glow Daily AHA Tonic. It is a toner from a clean skincare brand. It is 100 mL so it is a travel size (the full size is 250 mL). It is a good sized broduct and basically you use it like a toner. I have used it before and really enjoyed it. I am thrilled to have another bottle here.

The next two items are a set of shampoo and conditioner. The set does count as two of the items in the box but i am okay with that as I would rather have the paired set of shampoo and conditioner. Especially since it is a brand I have not heard of before. It is Bleach London and it is the Reincarnation Shampoo and conditioner set. They are 75 mL each so that is plenty for several washes and will give me a good idea of how the product performs. It is an nourishing and restoring set and as we edge into cooler months my hair will need more nourishing products. (the central heat tends to dry my hair out a bit over the winter) so for me this is a good product to try as we head into the fall.

Next we have an eye mask set from Elemis. These are the Pro Collagen Hydra Gel Eye masks to be specific. I love Elemis and have tried loads of products from them. I don’t think I have actually tried out any of their eye masks. Which is strange when I think about it as I really love Eye masks. So I look forward to giving this a go.

The next item is also a very timely product. It is the Nail HQ cuticle oil. This was actually the one variation in the box. If you didn’t get this one then you would have gotten the Solar Oil nail and Cuticle oil from Essentials. I’ve never tried either brand but they are both full size and they both are the same size. I’m sure there are some differences, but I don’t know what they are. I am happy to have a cuticle oil in right now. The gardening season is coming to an end and no matter how much i wear my gloves my hands always get dried out and messed up a bit by the time the garden is ready for winter. During the summer I tend to forget the oil and just use heavy duty hand lotion. I went to get my cuticle oil left over from last year this weekend and found I didn’t secure the lid tightly enough and it leaked out slowly over the summer and I needed a new one. So for me this is extra fab.

And finally we have the Disciple Dreamy Skin Retinyl Night Oil. It is a small bottle but with oils it really only takes a few drops. According to the label it reduces pigmentation, lines and pore size. If it does even half of that i will be thrilled with it. It is also listed as vegan and cruelty free which I like as well. I’m guessing retinyl is some how related to retinol. I’m not sure and will look into it prior to trying it on my skin. I’ll have to look into that and get back to you. Retinyl wasn’t one of the ingredients broken down in the pamphlet.

And so that was my look fantastic box. It was a mix of products from brands I know and love as well as a few new surprises to try out. It was skincare heavy, but Look Fantastic does tend to be skincare heavy in general and as it is a skincare awareness month box, I wouldn’t expect it to be anything but skincare heavy. Personally I love trying out new skincare and finding what works for my skin, not just in terms of products but in terms of ingredients. So I am very pleased with this month’s box and am actually looking forward to trying everything in it.

Unboxing the August 2022 Look Fantastic Box

My August Look Fantastic Box has arrived. Oh and before I forget Look Fantastic is having a 25% off Labor Day sale. They have a really good on-line store that I tend to use a lot when shopping. Also their waitlist for the Look Fantastic Advent Calendar just opened up. Signing up to the waitlist doesn’t obligate you to buy it just sends you information about release dates. They always sell out fast so if you are interested in this one getting on the waitlist to find out when sales starts really helps out.

But back to the August box. This is one of those boxes that I always find interesting. It is a UK based subscription box that costs $19 per month (you can get it for less with an annual subscription, which I have. So my price is $16 and I never regret getting the box for that price). what I like about this box is that many of the samples are from UK brands and often I find products I didn’t know about.

Oddly I have had the best luck with hair care products from this box. I was introduced to both Christophe Robin and Percy & Reed through this box and both have become standard brands for me with products that I use and reorder. (The Christophe Robin Sea Salt Scrub and the Percy & Reed Wonder Balm – which is actually on sale on the Look Fantastic Site and where I tend to pick it up – are two of my always stock products now. I highly recommend both.)

love that color

This month there are two hair care products in the box. One a shampoo and the other a conditioner. The Shampoo was actually last month’s spoiler product. It is the Sachajuan Ocean Mist Volume Shampoo. A few Months back we received a styling Cream from this brand. It is a full sized styling cream so I have not tried it yet as I am trying to clear out some of my sample sized hair care products at the moment. This is a deluxe sample sized shampoo, though so it might be tested sooner rather than later. It is a brand I hadn’t heard of prior to receiving it in this box so I am glad I have both products to try out. It lets me get a better feel for the brand.

the foil packet and the trial size I already owned

The conditioner is a foil packet. It is another brand I have really only tried through Look Fantastic as well, Philip Kingsley. I absolutely adore their Bond Builder (the ends of my hair will often get a little dry and not so fab looking and just a little bit on the ends worked wonders). This Foil packet is for the Elasticiser. It is a deep conditioning treatment. I have this same product in a deluxe sized tube. The tube contains half of the amount of product as the foil packet. (40 mL as opposed to 20) As the tube will have about two uses worth of product in it,. I am not upset about the packet at all. I may put it in an empty container just so I don’t have to try and fiddle with the foil pack with wet hands, but i am excited to try out the deep conditioning treatment. Plus thus far I have liked everything I have tried from the Philip Kingsley Brand. They seem to work reliably well with my hair.

In this month’s box is a Jade Green Gua Sha from Glov. I have quite a few of these in various materials from a multitude of subscription boxes. This one is pretty and feels both good and substantial in the hand. With Gua Sha’s they seem like a strange little tool, but they actually do some good work. The trick is that you have to use it consistently to see any results. I will generally use them for a couple of weeks and then I’ll start slacking off or forgetting and all the previous effort will go down the drain. There is a relaxing ritual to it if you can get in the habit. Do I need another one? no. Will I pass this on to someone else? Probably. But it is a nice quality tool to get in the subscription box so i am not mad at it.

The next item is also a skincare item and it is the Allies of Skin 35% Vitamin C Perfecting Serum. (As this is a serum that retails for$139 it more than pays for the box, currently this is on sale at Lovely Skin for 20% off if you are interested). I think I might have tried something from the brand before, at least the name has a familiar ring to it. I do like vitamin c serums and I love that it is in a glass bottle with a pump. Vitamin c tends to loose efficacy the longer it is exposed to both sun and air so the pump means i am not opening and closing the bottle all of the time. And the solid orange color of the glass bottle protects it from sunlight. I look forward to giving this a try. especially as it is a full sized item.

The last two items are makeup items. this does tend to be a skin and hair care heavy subscription but there is usually one make up item in each box. Or at least that is how the past few boxes have been. this one has two. The first is a full sixed Eyeko Double Act Shadow Stick in Cookies and Cream.

I actually got this exact same stick in an Allure Box a while ago (March 2022) and it is fantastic. One is a bronzy shimmer and one is a more silvery shimmer and it is really great to pear with an all matte palette or even a single matte. I tend to use it with my single shadows. I’ll grab a single matte shadow for a quick look and pair it with this shadow stick. The swatches are from the stick I already have in use. As this one is a repeat I will be passing it on. It is a really great product though and one I really like.

and finally I have The Balm Meet Matte Hughes Long Lasting Liquid Lipstick in Honest. It is a trial size and it is a little on the pink side for me, but i am still thrilled with it. I have several palettes from The Balm and I love their shadow formula.

For a long time Their Bahama Mama Bronzer was my go to as well. I have however never tried out any of their lippies. and you know how much I love finding new lip products. So even though it is a little pinker of a shade than I prefer I will be trying it out and seeing how I like the formula.

And that was my Look Fantastic Box for August. The products I like and it was certainly worth what i paid for it. My only issue is the booklet that comes with it. It is a 19 page booklet. Two of the pages are details about products. This month they gave descriptions about thee of the products, one of which I did not receive. one of the pages is about next month’s spoiler. It is the Ren Ready Steady Glow Daily AHA Tonic, which i am quite excited for. The rest of the pamphlet has good information. There is a spread about using the Gua Sha and lots of good ingredient information. I just wish they had broken out more of the products in the box. Even if there are variations, the booklet is large enough to break out more of the items.

As far as complaints go though, that is a small one. This month featured brands and products I am looking forward to trying out so over all I am happy about what I received, even if I have to look up the items elsewhere.

First Day of Fall 20% off with code SPEED

Unboxing the July 2022 Look Fantastic Box

That’s right, the subscription boxes keep coming. It is that time. There will be a bit of a break after this as the rest ship a bit later. This month’s Look Fantastic is called the Sunshine Edit. And I have to tell you right off the bat, as soon as I opened it a lovely summery scent wafted up from under the tissue paper. But before we get to that, a few of the basics. This is a $19 per month subscription but you can lower the cost by subscribing for longer. I have an annual membership but still pay monthly. My fee is $16 per box. while some months are always going to be better than others, I have never regretted keeping this subscription or going to annual. It is always worth the $19 but feels like a steal at $16.

So what is inside this month’s box?

I’ll admit the first thing I went for when I peeled back the tissue paper was the item that smelled so lovely. It is the Foamie Papaya Body Bar. It is a Papaya and Oat Milk bar of soap that has a ribbon on it to hang in your shower. I love the scent of papaya.

Oddly I love the smell more than I like the taste. The taste is a bit strong for me and ends up tasting a little on the perfume side. But I love the scent and am thrilled to have it in soap form. I also love that it has oat milk in it. My baby doll gets skin irritations from his allergies and oat milk based soaps really help him with taming that so this will be well used and possibly fought over.

The second item I took out of the box is the spoiler from last month as well as the only makeup item in this month’s box. It is it BY Terry Hyaluronic Hydra Powder. It is a travel sized powder. I am perfectly fine with the size since I don’t know much about the brand. I am glad they send something from By Terry that wasn’t the rose oil lip gloss which I’ve gotten a couple of times in boxes. (it’s the only thing I’ve tried from them. That was a very intense rose. I have seen this powder in the Dermstore and really wanted to try it out but was worried everything the brand had would come with that overly intense rose scent. I am happy this doesn’t smell like rose. I did open the powder. It is very finely milled and sent up a dust cloud when opened. It will be interesting to see how it performs.

Item number three was the Minetan After Sun Gel. I am actually really pleased by this. I thought Minetan only did sun-less tanning products. It is nice to know they have an after sun gel. It is something that soothes skin after too much sun and cools sunburns. As one of it’s chief ingredients is Aloe Vera which I use to treat sunburns, I have high hopes this will be good. I have worked hard not to get sunburns this year, but post sun soothing is always handy to have around, even without the burn.

A full sized Scalp Scrub from Umberto Giannini was in the box this month. I have never heard of Umberto Giannini before as a brand, but I do love scalp scrubs. I recently finished the Christophe Robin Sea Salt scalp scrub and will soon be restocking. I’ve bought that several times and will buy it again. It will be nice to try a different scalp scrub though. This one has pictures of pineapples on the front so perhaps it will be more tropical and fit well with the papaya soap.

Next, we have the Mio Future Proof Body Butter. Which I can’t lie did make me tear up a little. I received a tube of their shower gel in a subscription box a few years back and not only did I like it, but as my brother was looking for a new body wash and loved the scent of oranges I ordered a tube for him and have added it to his Christmas stocking each year since since he really liked it. I have not tried their body butter but look forward to giving it a go even though at the moment I am starting to get a stockpile of body butters. At least this one is travel sized and can be used up fairly quickly. Soon we will see if it is as good as their body wash.

The last Item in my box this month was an either or product. You could either receive a Cetaphil Gentle skin Cleanser or a Beauty Pro Clay Sheet mask. I got the Clay sheet mask and I am pretty happy about it actually. I know, I’m not the biggest fan of sheet masks, but I have used a couple of clay sheet masks and I enjoyed them a lot. So I am hoping this is a good one. And yes they are basically peel off clay masks. And you know how I love clay masks.

If you are interested in getting this box and are a new subscriber then you can get your first box for just $16 (use code HELLO) They almost always have a discount code each month posted on the page so if you decide that this box isn’t for you but then a few month’s later see one that is more your style you can usually find the code there. Right now their on line store is also having a 25% of sale with code LFSALE. Oh and the spoiler for next month is the Medik8 Hydr8 B5 Intense which is described as a super charged Hyaluronic acid serum. and I am all for hyaluronic acid. Plus while August will be brutal heat wise here, soon after we may head into cooler temps and then I will need the extra moisture products. So it will be nice to have something like that on hand.

And that my darlings was my July Look Fantastic box and for me this month was pretty fantastic.

Unboxing the Look Fantastic Beauty Box for June 2022

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.

Unboxing the Look Fantastic Beauty Box for May 2022

This is one of my favorite times of year for the Look Fantastic Beauty Box. This Beauty Box is $19 if you are on a month to month plan but the rate is lowered if you subscribe for a longer commitment. You still pay month to month, but you just commit to the subscription length. With my subscription it is $17 per month and it is always worth it.

In May each year they have the start of summer bag. They send out the subscription not in a cardboard box, but in a bag. This year’s bag is clear plastic and shaped like an old school shaving kit with a loop on one end so you can hang it up out of the way if you’d like. The zipper moves easily without sticking and the plastic looks sturdy. I am certain I will end up getting a lot of use out of this over the summer.

But while the bag is nice, it is what is inside that counts. This month there was no pamphlet with my box and no QR code to scan either so I am flying blind on many of these items. The first item however was out spoiler from last month. It is the Rituals Ritual of Karma Shimmering Body Oil. According to the website this oil is used to…

Reveal your inner sparkle with this body shimmer oil from The Ritual of Karma. Containing tiny shimmering mineral particles, the oil nourishes while leaving a satin finish and illuminating sun-kissed skin. The delicately sweet aroma of holy lotus and White Tea softens and scents, and the tan activator complex promotes a longer-lasting tan.


It smells lovely and when I applied a little to my skin I ended up more of a golden hued shimmer than a glittery shine so I am actually looking forward to using this over the summer with the warm weather clothing. I was worried it would look glittery, but it doesn’t.

The second Item is one I have seen before. I have the exact same sized tube from a different beauty box and a third smaller size from yet another one. It is the Paradox Repair 3-in-1 Conditioner, hair mask and finishing cream. I actually scheduled to start using the smaller of my samples of this product to see how I liked it. (I’m finishing up the Kendra Hair treatment at the moment). So soon i should know if this is worth stock piling or if the extra samples will be sent to other homes. But as I always love a good hair mask and go through them fairly quickly, especially once the summer sun started baking my hair, I am okay with having another sample of the Paradox mask. I’ll feel even better about it if i use it and like it, so for now judgement is reserved.

There is one makeup item this month and it is a Ciate London Highlighter. It is in the shade Starburst. I am actually quite pleased with this. I generally enjoy Ciate products. There are a few not to my taste but for the most part I love them. I had the Confetti highlighter and really enjoyed it but then I dropped something on it and because it was pressed beads instead of a pan of product once a few beads came loose the entire thing cracked up and disintegrated. I think a highlighter was the one thing i needed to have a full face of Ciate. I know it sounds strange but i get an odd thrill when I can do an entire face with one brand. I don’t know why, but I just do. And this is a golden toned highlighter which i love. So i am looking forward to trying this out.

Moving on we have a Bondi Sands Daily Moisturizing Face SPF 50+ Fragrance free sunscreen. Because what would a summer themed box be without sunscreen? I know they will crop up for the next few months and I am always happy to have sample sizes of sunscreen. I tend to be a bit picky with my sunscreen. There are just so many that I just don’t like. I’ll wear them if needed because it is better than not having sunscreen, but I do like to try out formulas. This far nothing has beaten the Volition Prismatic sunscreen in my fabulous to wear on a daily basis sunscreen, but I love trying new ones. And I have heard (and tried) the Bondi sands self- tanners so it is nice to see a sun protection product from them. And 50+ protection is perfect for gardening.

I have also heard of the next brand but i have to confess I am not that familiar. The brand is Skin Chemists and the Product is The Rose and Lavender Intensive Night therapy eye serum. The product I tried from them was a Rose scented lip oil or maybe a balm. I can’t remember but it was for the lips, it was rose infused and it tasted like perfume. I tried it and couldn’t take the rose. I am not opening this up, because the clock on skincare starts ticking as soon as you do and I have other eye products to work through first, but I am hoping that it is not as rose-tastic as the lip balm because i can always use a good eye serum for night time repair. So I am pleased that I get to try out something from the brand and because I am applying it no where near my mouth taste won’t be an issue. When I went on the Real Chemist’s website, I found several items from the Youth Series but I couldn’t find this exact serum. I don’t know if it is new or at least new packaging, or if it is older packaging. It is one of the drawbacks to not having the actual pamphlet. I am sure they are saving on waste which is appreciated but I would have liked at least a QR code to scan so that I could easily find the products. It will become more important as I try the eye serum. Then I’ll want to look into all of the details, and if I like it possibly look at purchasing a new bottle. This is just a little more difficult without the pamphlet.

And finally we come to the last item in this month’s Look Fantastic Beauty Box and it is the Gruum Klar Purifying Facial Cleanser. I it a plastic free cleansing bar with activated charcoal and lemongrass. I have never heard of the brand before but the cleansing bar smells amazing. It is a fresh lemongrass scent. I love the scent of lemon grass. I actually grow it in a pot every year not just for cooking purposes but because I love the scent of it after it has been sitting in the sun for the day. The pot sits on my back porch and it is a fantastic scent to have surrounding you at the end of a long summer’s day when you sit in the shade and unwind with a cool drink. Especially if you use the lemon grass in the drink.

But that is another story.

In general I am not a huge fan of cleansing bars. The only one I’ve ever really liked has been the Erno Lazlo Black Cleansing bar. That one I actually love. I am willing to give this one a try though, partially because it is here and partially because I just love the scent from the cleansing bar. Plus I do like activated charcoal in my skincare. Plus it is a brand I know nothing about, so that is also fun.

Over all I am quite pleased with this month’s Look Fantastic Box. Most of these items I might not have picked out for myself, partially because I had never heard of them. However now that they are hear, all of them will get a good try out. Actually i am kind of looking forward to trying out these products. Especially the cleansing bar. I think that might be because of the scent. It really does smell absolutely fantastic. And in addition, I also have a fabulous new plastic travel bag. I love these bags for not only transporting shampoo and body wash without risking them spilling over other products, but for beach use (goggles and sunscreen) and my favorite, putting a wet wash cloth and a few ice cubes inside when working in the garden.

It is fantastic when you just need a little cool pick me up when working in the sun. I meant to use last year’s summer bag for travel, but it ended up being a garden bag and was a life saver last year. As this is a long bag instead of a small square one it might have a chance of being saved for travel instead of garden use, but we’ll have to see how that shakes out. It is a welcome addition to my word though. The only drawback this month, for me, was the lack of information that a pamphlet would have provided (either a physical pamphlet or a digital one). That was my only minor complaint, and as I will end up looking up each product in greater detail as I start to use it, it is a minor one. Otherwise, i quite enjoyed May’s Look Fantastic.

Unboxing the Look Fantastic April 2022 Beauty Box

I know, It is late in the month for this Look Fantastic Beauty box, but they did send an e-mail letting me know that it was going to be mailed out late, which I really appreciate. I don’t mind that actually. They let me know when I could expect it and it gave me a nice treat at the end of the month. Since most of my subscriptions arrive closer to the beginning of the month it is nice to have a little something at the end. And yes I do know that this is technically the beginning of may but it did come in on Friday so it did make it here before the end of April. Plus I’ll soon be receiving May’s box.

But now, we need to talk about April, because April was a good month.

The first Item I pulled out of my April Look Fantastic box is from Molton Brown. I love Molton brown shower gels and I really like the travel sized bottles. And this is a scent I haven’t tried. It is the Molton Brown Heavenly Gingerlily. I did open it to take a sniff however there is one scented product in the box that I think might be overpowering it. So I am not entirely certain I am getting the correct scent from it. I will happily be trying it out in the shower though and will report back in.

The heavily scented product is a full size of the Heel Repair with tea tree oil from Australian Body Care. I have never tried anything from Australian Body Care. In fact I don’t think I have ever heard of them. And to be honest, I am not always a fan of Tea tree oil.. Don’t get me wrong, it works fantastically well, I just don’t care for the scent. However this is a product for my feet, and since my feet tend to stay far from my nose I am less picky about the scents, especially at this time of year. That’s right my darlings, the sandals are coming out and the assessment and repair of the feet needs to begin.

As this is designed for extremely dry heels I am more than willing to give it a shot, because my feet need all the help they can get. So this is timely, even if the scent is a bit over powering. Surprisingly when looking in the book a different tea tree product is listed. The pamphlet lists a 10ml bottle of tea tree oil from the brand instead of the 100 ml heel repair I received. I’m guessing there was a swap out, which I am okay with a I would much rather have the heel repair.

The third item in my Look Fantastic Box this month I’m pretty sure pays for the box several times over. It is the Avant Hydra-replenish Lip Balm. It is a full size and while the value is given in British Pounds if I do my handy dandy conversion chart this lip balm is worth a whopping $70.56 (it was 56 pounds sterling in case you want to do your own conversion.) I had to check that twice, but those were the numbers given. I’m sure it is a nice lip balm. Most products I’ve tried from Avant are really nice. The one exception being the rose oil lip scrub which to be fair worked really well and left my lips feeling soft and fabulous but tasted like I had decided to use a heavily perfumed bar of soap as a lollipop for the day.

However, that being said there is nothing that is ever going to get me to say that $70 for a lip balm is acceptable on any level. I don’t are how fabulous it turns out to be, that is over priced for a lip balm. I will use it, and i will feel fabulously fancy doing so, but it will never be repurchased. Still It might be fun to try out, and as shocked by the price as i am, I do like lip balm. (I’ve also been trying one out that I absolutely can’t stand and wouldn’t mind setting it t the side to try something new).

Moving on we have a Philip Kingsley product this month. It is the Elasticizer Booster Restoring Conditioner. I’ll have to read up to see if it is a regular conditioner or a leave in one before I use it. I don’t mind seeing this at all. I recently tried out the Bond Builder from Philip Kingsley and found it fantastic. I will happily give this a try.

Also thrilling this month is the Verso Hydration Serum. I adore the Verso eye cream and their night cream so I am thrilled I get to try another product from the brand. I haven’t tried the hydration serum. It has niacinamide which works well for me. The Verso eye cream is actually the eye cream i compare all other eye creams to so if this works even half as well as that it will be a winner in my book.

Next we have a foil packet of an Aveeno Moisturizer. It is the Oat Gel Calm and Restore Moisturizer. It is mentioned no where in the pamphlet. Usually when we get a foil packet in a Look Fantastic Box it is an extra item they throw in. There are six other items so my best guess is that it was an extra seventh added but not mentioned. I don’t mind it, however it is for Normal to Dry skin.

While my skin may be considered normal to dry in the depths of winter, we are leaving that behind. I do like Aveeno though so this will either end up being passed along or added to my collection of foil packets and used when the weather once again turns cold. I’ll try to pass it on so it can be used quickly but there is always the possibility i will forget.

And then finally we have the Elemis Soothing Apricot Toner. It is a travel size but it is probably the item I am the most tickled to see. I love Elemis products. I have never had an elemis product I didn’t like. From the Cleansing Balms, to scrubs to moisturizers to oils.

Online Exclusives. The Best of Elemis available only at Elemis.com

However I don’t think I have actually tried out any of their toners. hence one of the reasons I am so delighted. I love a good toner. I am half way through my Murad toner so when I am finished with it I may roll this in. Also I love the scent of apricot. For me apricot just screams summer too so it is very timely.

This was my box and while it did come very late in the month, it was a really good box and I am thrilled to have it. with the exception of the foil packet of Aveeno which is not targeted for my skin type, I am thrilled with every other product and very much looking forward to trying them out. And really that is the mark of a good subscription box. The value for your money is important of course, but for me the value lies in whether or not I will use the items or not. This is a box i will happily use. And to be honest I am already anticipating my evening shower and my first use of the Molton Brown Gingerlily.

Oh and in the back of the pamphlet that came with this months box was the sneak peek for May. It is from Rituals and it is the Ritual of Karma Body Shimmer oil. I’ve tried out a lot of shower gels, body creams and body exfoliants from Rituals but never a shimmer oil so I am looking forward to that. For now I am just going to enjoy the products that I have. The Heel Repair is moving to my night stand for use on my feet before bed, the Molton Brown is moving to the shower, the verso and Elemis are taking their places in line waiting for their turn in my skin care line up and the Avant is staying on my desk so my lips can try out a $70 lip balm. Oh yes my darlings, this was a very good box this month.

Unboxing the March 2022 Look Fantastic Box

Guess what arrived on my doorstep? That’s right it is the March Look Fantastic Box. I was somewhat surprised as I generally don’t look for this box to arrive until the date has double digits. I know today is March 9th, so it was close, very close. Still I generally look for it around the fourteenth. I really enjoy this box. It does tend to be a bit skincare heavy, but a lot of the brands included are items I have either never tried or have limited experience with. Part of that is because it is a UK based subscription box. This is a $19 per month subscription, but the cost is lower if you sign up for a longer period. I went annual with this one because I enjoy it so much and my cost is $17 per month. I still pay monthly which means I don’t have to come up with an entire year’s worth of payments at one time, which is really nice.

This month’s theme is empowerment and I believe all of the products were chosen from email founded brands. The first item out of my box this month is the Emma Hardie Facial Oil. There are two identical bottles in my Look Fantastic box and I’m not sure if that was intentional or an accident. what is interesting is that I have a still sealed full size bottle of this exact same oil. I use facial oils more slowly than I use other products in my skincare collection and I am a bit on the picky side with them. i have tried lots of oils I don’t like and a few that I adore. I am still branching out with them What I like is that I can try one of the small bottles and if I like it move on to opening and using the full size. And if I don’t I can pass along the full size unopened. Even though I have that oil in my collection I know virtually nothing about the brand so this will also give me an excuse to investigate. Over all, a pretty good way to start.

The second item I took from the look Fantastic box was the spoiler in last month’s pamphlet. It is the Sachajuan Styling Cream. Until I saw it in last month’s pamphlet I had never heard of the band in any capacity so it is completely new to me. I am always willing to try new hair products.

Next up is the Starskin Dream Kiss Plumping and Hydrating Lip mask. I have heard of Starskin in fact last week I used an eye mask. While the eye mask wasn’t really to my taste I do have another Starskin eye mask to try out. Perhaps I will pair it with the lip mask next week. I’ve tried lip masks in sheet form before but none of them have been plumping. I am kind of curious as to how that will work since every lips sheet mask I have tried has been much bigger than my lips in general. It will be interesting to see how that turns out.

And I have to say that is one of the things I love about subscription boxes in general. Since i found the eyemask okay but not fabulous, if I saw this lip mask advertised I would be curious but probably pass it by, talking myself out of purchasing it. Now I get to try it and assuage my curiosity. And that’s not a bad thing.

The next item is a brand that I was introduced to by Look Fantastic and I always get excited whenever I see it appear in my box. And that brand is ESPA. Every product I have tried from the brand has been fantastic. We’ve had a couple of their items in the box and they are the sort of products that bring the spa home. And thus far every item I’ve tried in a subscription box, I’ve ended up purchasing in a full size. It is just a good brand.

This month there is an ESPA refining Skin Polish. And we all know I love a good exfoliator. I am getting ready to start a month long mask trial with a mask from the brand Bl’eau that also has exfoliating properties so I am going to have to set it to the side for now, but I am always thrilled to get ESPA in any subscription box.

The two remaining items in the March Look Fantastic are makeup related, one is a makeup brush and the other a lipstick. The brush is from a brand called Luvia and it is a detail shader. (When I went to look for a link I found the brand but not the exact brush which is odd. The link will take you to the look fantastic set of Luvia brushes) I frequently use this style of brush so having another one is not a bad thing. The bristles are soft and the brush feels like it will be of pretty good quality. I won’t know how I lie it until I use it, but I am always happy to have another brush. Especially since I realized the other day that I seriously need to sit down and remove some of the a little too well loved brushes from my collection. Several of my favorites have spent a little too much time as my favorites and are now edging into retirement. So it is extra nice to have a new one to try out.

And finally we have a lipstick from Wet’ n Wild. It is from the megalast collection and I really enjoy the formula. It does last a long time for a bullet style lipstick and it feels very comfortable to wear. This shade is Sand Storm which is a really nice looking neutral that I think I’ll be able to wear without having it wash my lips out.

Over all I am really pleased with my March Look Fantastic box. All of the items are ones I will use, with a couple of really exciting ones included. I love the mix of brands I am familiar with and the one I know nothing about and I really like the empowerment theme for the month. Usually I would say it bothers me that they only break out four of the included items in the pamphlet. This is a recent thing and not one I am a fan of. However this month the two things they didn’t break out were the wet ‘n wild lipstick and the shading brush so it wasn’t a problem. Last month thee was an item that I wanted more information on that they didn’t include in their top four and it was a bit frustrating. This month it wasn’t an issue. We’ll see how it goes next month.

And speaking of next month, there is a teaser for next month’s box. Next month is the Hyaluronic Replenish Lip Balm from the brand Avant. Avant is a rather pricy brand. In general I like their products. The last lip product they scent I had issues with because it was rose flavored and tasted like sucking on a perfume bottle. It worked well, just tasted bad, I’m pleased to see this lip balm is not rose scented. The price listed is in pounds, but using my handy dandy pounds to USD converter I find this lip balm is worth $73.39 (56 Pounds) which may be the most expensive lip balm I have ever seen. I can’t wait to see how that performs. But that is for April. For that we have to wait.

Unboxing the February 2022 Look Fantastic Beauty Box

I always love when the Look Fantastic Box shows up on my doorstep. I think it is because the only spoiler I ever see is in the back of the previous month’s pamphlet as their Sneak Peak. And then I forget what i saw so everything is a surprise. Plus I often get items and brands I’ve never heard of mixed in with familiar favorites. Incidentally in the back of the February’s pamphlet is March’s sneak peak. It is the Sachajuan Volume Styling Cream (125 ML). I’ve heard of the brand but never tried any of their hair care products, so that should be fun.

This month there was a hair mask from Paradox in the Look fantastic box. It is the Paradox Repair Game Changer Hair mask. I have tried a hair mask from this brand before and I really enjoyed it, so I am looking forward to trying this mask out and hope it works as well as the last one. It is in a metal tin and I couldn’t help but open it. The tin is quite full, which is always a ood sign. I’ll have to look into ingredients before I try it out but do you know what it smells like? It smells like those natural deodorant creams. I find that a little strange, but also an excuse to go on an ingredient investigation so that might be fun as well.

original on left and this months version on the right

The second item I had to double check because of the packaging. It is the Dr. Botanicals Lemon Repair cream. I’ve gotten this before in a different subscription box (I think it was Birchbox) and I loved it. Then I found a store near me (walgreens) that sold it and I picked up another travel sized tube for my purse. this has the rainbow colors rather than the yellow tube but is it exactly the same cream so I am thrilled. The tube from my purse is almost empty so it is nice to have a replacement.

Funny thing is that I used to put my least favorite hand creams in my purse so if I was away from home and needed hand cream I would go ahead and use them up because there was no alternative. Now with hand sanitizer drying my hands out at every turn I am putting my favorite hand creams in my purse because I know I will need to reach for them. Not the only switch up in my world but a slightly amusing one nonetheless.

Moving along this month there is a Balance Me Vitamin C Eye serum in this month’s box. Balance me and I have scent issues. The products are always fantastic though, the scents are just too strong and almost always remind me of industrial floor polish. Occasionally furniture polish. Which kind of makes the sample sized versions good for me. I can use them and then about the time I can’t take the scent any more, the product is gone and I have moved on. I don’t think I’ve tried the eye cream so that will be a nice change.

he BYBI Clarity Cleanse is completely new to me. I have not heard of the brand and clearly not tried the product. I am always up for finding new cleansers though. It is one of those categories I will always use. No matter what else happens during the day, I will always wash my face in the morning and again at night. More than any other product in my skincare line up, I like having an array or products that I know I can pick up because they will work for me. I like having both drug store and high end brands that I know I can consistently reach for. Because if i run out of cleanser I may order one of my favorites on line, but I will also run out and pick one up from the store to hold me until the order arrives. Since I know nothing about this brand I suspect it isn’t going to be one I can just run out and pick up. And of course since I haven’t tried it, I don’t yet know if I’ll want to. But I like trying new cleansers. I do have to add I had a hard time finding this one. There were other BYBI products listed but I couldn’t find the clarity cleanser anywhere. I will have to look further.

There is one makeup item in my Look Fantastic box this month. This box does tend to be a little heavy on the skin care but usually there are a couple of makeup items. This month’s makeup item is one I already own. It is a travel size of the Lottie London Ombre Blush. It is an interesting product. Because it is ombre there are color variations across the pan. The darker sections of the blush work fantastically for me. The lighter shades are too bright pink. While this does work well in a larger pan. It isn’t very good in a small trial size like this because no matter how carefully you dip into the pan you will get multiple shades on the brush. The pigmentation and blendability are great and I would consider getting a full size of the darker shade (if it is offered). Since I already have this blush I will be passing it on, but I don’t mind it.

Glov is a frequent brand to this box and this month there is a packet of two reusable makeup remover pads. They are small heart shaped cut outs that feel quite soft. I am always looking for reusable products so I will happily give them a try to see how they perform. Some Glov products I have really liked and others I just can’t stand so it will be interesting to see which category these fall into.

And finally we have item number seven in this month’s Look Fantastic Beauty Box. And it kind of amuses me. This is the Pixi Glow Tonic exfoliating toner. I have tried this toner before and really liked it. what amuses me is that after I used up the bottle I purchased I went back to the store to restock and they were out. In fact they have been consistently out of this product every time I go. This and the Clarity Toner are my two favorite Pixi products and the two I would continually repurchase. Unfortunately both are almost always out of stock whenever I go to purchase them. And now a subscription box sends me a small (15ML) sized bottle. It feels a bit like they are taunting me.

We know you like this, but you can’t have a full sized bottle, oh no. But you can have the small one, just don’t try to repurchase.

I’m sure they aren’t intentionally taunting me, but as I again looked for the toner this weekend and came up short, it just feels that way. I am happy to have it though. It is a good product and once I finish trying out the sample toner I’ve got going now, I will use this up. I just find it amusing. And yes I know I can order the toner. But it has been gone from the store so many times that i am now determined to buy it at the store here. Just once. Then I’ll probably order it. I do have other toners so it isn’t a major thing. Its really just me being stubborn.

So there you have my February Look Fantastic box in all it’s unboxed glory. And you unintentionally got a peek at a little piece of my internal crazy. Sorry about that. And I don’t really think that Pixi and Target are deliberately hiding toners from me. Or taunting me with samples in subscription products that I can’t find because the racks are always empty. Since I tend to go shopping at the same time each week, I know it probably is a timing issue. There is no collusion.

I’m like 87% sure anyway.

This month was a pretty good box for me. There were a couple of products I love and a couple that I want to try. There is one I will pass on and the rest will be put to use here. With th seven items it feels like the box was overflowing this month. I will say that I wasn’t too thrilled with the booklet that came with the box. While there was a picture showing all the variation items, they only broke out their favorite four. So there was less information about the products that i received than usual. I think they might have had more variation items than usual so that’s why they chose it. They did include heaps of other information about skincare routines and even a Valentines Day Book club, but I would have liked a little more info on the products I actually received. It is a minor complaint as far as these things go though and I’ll just end up looking up items before i use them. Otherwise, great box.
