If the current state of the world has filled you with an urge to travel and get out, look no further than this amazing beauty Bag from Lookfantastic. Yep that’s right this month instead of a bag we have this gorgeous white travel bag along with everything you need for summer skin, let’s dive in and unpack it!

The Summer Lookfantastic beauty bag £15

First is this absolutely gorgeous Illamasqua highlighter in a champagne colour , this will look amazing on all skin tones and is so beautifully pigmented without that glittery look. It’s a sheen of brilliant colour and I absolutely love it!

Next is a new product to me, the Starskin brand is one that’s been featured a lot but I’ve not seen this type of product before from them, it’s a Miracle Skin Mask pad. This is basically like an exfoliating pad but with a more serum based approach which is why it’s called a mask pad. You just sweep across the face and it replaces serum in your routine. It’s nice and I could see myself using them as part of an evening routine maybe.

I wasn’t expecting to like this next product at all, because I am not into fake tan. Main reason being that because of my psoriasis it just doesn’t work for me it always looks patchy and sticks to areas of my skin that are raised, which isn’t the tans fault. So when I saw this I didn’t realise at first it was a gradual tanning mist. However I did decide to give it a go as my face has been clear of psoriasis and I wanted to see what it was like. It actually is really subtle and for me I felt like I would use it every so often just for a bit of a tan glow. I imagine if you used it regularly it would build up more so I think it’s nice to have that option if you are into tanning products.

I love that Lookfantastic put in haircare items from time to time and Grow Gorgeous is a great brand. This spray is a anti-pollution leave in spray and it is to help protect your hair from any nasties. I did try this and my hair was incredibly soft afterward and my hair seemed to like it.

Elemis products are always a welcome fave in beauty boxes and this one is absolutely amazing. It’s a glow priming moisturiser and it’s just perfect for wearing if you want a no makeup day but just want a little bit of a glowy skin moment. It’s not too shimmery it’s just the right amount to give a little blur to your skin tone and it smells incredible.

Last of all is a Revlon lipstick in the shade Rose Wine. I think it’s more of an autumnal shade for me but it’s a really nice berry toned red and feels really nice on so I definitely think I will enjoy using it.

Lookfantastic have a range of subscriptions available here with a rolling subscription where you pay month by month as well as 3, 6 and 12 month subscriptions.

Ethereal Beauty

This months Lookfantastic box has an ethereal theme with inspiration from the outdoors, sunsets and the coming summer months. There are 6 products this month plus an extra so 7 things in total. I really love the Lookfantastic box as it’s usually focused on skincare and I really enjoy trying new products.

£15 for the May Lookfantastic box

First up we have a hydrating gel from Comfort Zone, this item replaced the sneak peek from last month which was meant to be an Espa product. It seems there was a supply issue as this will now be included in the June box. This cream has moringa oil to help with inflammation and clearer skin.

Mini size the full size of this product is £47 for 200ml

Next is a peeling mask from ECooking with lactic and glycolic acid to help with tightening and smoothing your skin. Not gonna lie I feel a bit freaked out that the first thing on there says “don’t panic if your skin turns red”! It doesn’t look like the type of mask I would use as I worry it would flare my psoriasis so I will probably pass this on.

Also this month we have a Dr Botanicals kiwi eye serum to support a reduction in the signs of ageing. I love trying different eye products and it’s an area of my skincare I’m really focused on especially keeping it hydrated. This is really lightweight and absorbed nicely so I can see this becoming a new favourite!

Full size £19.99

Next is a simple one but something I’ve talked about before on this blog, a Burts Bees lip balm. The lip balm is a staple product from Burts Bees and this one is cucumber and mint which smells amazing. I absolutely love their lip balms as they are so hydrating so I’m really pleased to have gotten one here.

Full size £4.99

A new one for me is this silicone bristle pad from the Vintage Cosmetics Company. This is designed to be used with your cleanser to help remove any dead skin cells. I used this and definitely felt a difference in the smoothness of my skin and this would be really handy if I were having a psoriasis flare up as it’s often difficult to find gentle face scrubs.

A 3 pack of these pads are £6.99

The last item included this month is Stress Check hand cream from This Works. A really nice formula with Shea butter and has a nice lavender scent and definitely something we all need with hand washing and sanitising being so important right now.

This is a mini size, the full size is £10 to purchase

An additional item included was a hand sanitiser from L’Oréal Paris which is specially formulated to dry within 30 seconds and also contains glycerin to combat the drying feeling you get from other hand gels. A nice little extra and again great for these times we find ourselves in as I know a handgel is always in my bag now.

Full size £2.69

Lookfantastic have a range of subscriptions available here

I’m currently subscribed on a monthly basis and pay £15 inc postage and packaging for my box. My favourite products this month are definitely the Dr Botanicals serum and the Burts Bees balm, both nicely scented and really effective.

What about you guys what do you think of this box?

Blossom with Lookfantastic this April

This post contains affiliate links.

April’s box from Lookfantastic is giving me major spring vibes with its floral blossom theme, I know florals for spring …. groundbreaking! In all seriousness I love the pink blossom theme it’s perfect for this time of year when things are starting to bloom and feels so appropriate as we move toward a new start and things beginning to open up following the most recent lockdowns.

There are 6 products in this months box and 5 of them are full size. First up we have this gorgeous pale pink cherry blossom coloured nail polish from Nails Inc. Nails Inc is always a winner for me as it’s hands down my go to polish as it’s easy to apply and long lasting . I find the brush in their polish is really good it seems to apply a full coat in one swipe. I love the colour too and this is definitely one I would’ve picked.

Nails Inc. Polish in the shade Mayfair Lane (full size) £15

Next we have an unusual product and one I’ve not used before. It’s a Scrubex and it’s like a mini exfoliating wash cloth for your lips. I’ve used lip scrubs before but I’ve not seen anything like this before , it’s cute, definitely works and I think it was a little more gentle than a normal lip scrub.

Glov Scrubex £11.90

Then we have what is a staple of beauty boxes, the sheet mask. This one is from Beauty Pro and it’s a rose infused mask to help with inflammation as well as oily skin and minimising redness. I’ve had a few blemishes lately so this has come at a good time for me. I really enjoy getting different sheet masks and this was no exception. Rose isn’t my favourite scent, but this wasn’t really overpowering so I didn’t mind it. My skin felt lovely afterward too!

Beauty Pro Rose infused sheet mask full size £4.95

Also in this months box is a REN daily moisturiser this has a really nice texture it’s not too heavy for a day cream and it absorbs really well into the skin. It’s designed to help with dehydrated skin which is great for me!

Ren Evercalm Global Protection Cream 15ml sample size

Next is our sneak peek from last month the Avant Pink Orchid Overnight serum. This is a really lovely serum and you only need a tiny bit to apply after you’ve cleansed and toned your face. I am always happy to get Avant products in my beauty boxes as I know the quality is going to be great.

Avant Pink Orchid Restoring Overnight Serum full size £92

Lastly we have a set of lashes from Eyelure. These are the 3/4 length lashes and are really lightweight. I’m excited to try these as I usually always end up trimming false eyelashes and I’m not the best at doing it! I’ve not worn lashes in so long I think I actually might need a practice to apply them!

Eyelure London 3/4 length lashes £5.95

And that’s everything in this months box ! What did you think?

The sneak peek for next month is an ESPA eye moisturiser, I love getting eye creams to try as thats an area I really focus on and ESPA is a gorgeous brand, their products always smell amazing.

I’m currently subscribed on a monthly basis and pay £15 inc postage and packaging for my box. The total value of this months box came to

Lookfantastic February 2021

Love is in the air ! Even if you’re not feeling the Valentine’s vibes this month the February LookFantastic box is themed around Treasure with an emphasis on self care. Making the most of any little moment to give yourself a pamper or just relax is so important in these testing times. I loved the quote inside the box below.

Illamasqua beyond veil skin glowing gel was our sneak peek last month and it’s a good mini size. It combines their fab face primer and their Beyond Powder to hydrate and illuminate all in one. I’ve really liked using this and you only need a tiny bit it’s a really great base for foundation and my makeup sat really well. Would definitely recommend if you struggle with your makeup base staying put.

Magnitone Wipeout Swipes, these are basically reusable cotton pads. I have really enjoyed using the ones I got in my Glossybox last month and these have been great too. It’s a small thing but something I can change to be a bit more eco friendly as they can be machine washed and dry really quick.

Elemis Papaya Enzyme Peel is our next item. I was really intrigued by this, it’s a cream based exfoliator which you apply and leave for 10 mins before cleaning off.

Eyeko London Galactic lid gloss in Zodiac. This is a really nice metallic cream eye shadow. It’s a lovely colour and really sparkly. It’s great on its own or would be nice with a neutral toned palette to add a pop of sparkle.

Bubble T Strawberry Macaron hand and body butter , first of all this smells amazing! Super sweet strawberry scent so if that’s not your thing sorry! It’s a really nice hand cream and can actually be used on the body as well if you prefer.

The last item is the Balance Me AHA Glow Mask there was a nice section in the magazine explaining AHAs and other skincare terms which is really useful as it’s so important to know how to properly layer your skincare. I can recommend the Caroline Hirons book Skincare which is a great guide for anyone more interested in this subject.

Lookfantastic February 2021

Lookfantastic have a range of subscriptions available here . I’m currently subscribed on a monthly basis and pay £15 inc postage and packaging for my box. If you got this box what did you think?

Lookfantastic January 2021

Lookfantastic have had a mini makeover with a fresh look to the magazine in the box and packaging. I especially liked that the theme this month was Restoration, as I think after 2020 we could all use some of that! Instead of focusing on a new year, new me angle the focus is on products to make us feel confident, and give a moment of escape from the stresses of the world, and there are lots right now!

So first we have a hand mask! Something a bit different, I’ve tried one of these before from Seoulista and really liked it as it made my skin so soft and this was the same. Basically it’s a set of serum infused gloves that you place your hands in and then fasten the tabs around your wrist to keep in place. You leave it on for about 15 mins and then just massage any remaining serum into your hands. It’s like having a mini spa treatment at home and my hands really needed some tlc after all the cold weather we’ve been having! These are from Starskin and have Shea butter, goji Berry and macadamia nut and olive oil so smell amazing too.

Starskin Nourishing Hand Mask gloves £8.50

Next is a product from SVR which is a french brand. I’d not heard of this brand before but I was interested to try it and see if it’s a good moisturiser. It’s a face moisturiser for very dry and sensitive skin, so far so good! It can be used day and night and is a really nice texture. I’ve used it for a few days and it hasn’t irritated my skin at all and it really does help with any dry patches you might have.

SVR Intense Moisturising Cream £15

I do love a good hair mask and this one from Intelligent Haircare is an overnight one. It’s a deluxe mini size so if you’ve got long hair like me you’d only get one use out of this, shorter styles you’d likely get two maybe three. It’s a vegan formula and also free from parabens, sulphates and silicones- basically all the nasties you don’t want on your hair! Really easy to use, just run it through your hair and scalp and then tie it up. In the morning rinse and shampoo/condition as normal. This is a really lovely formula and my hair felt great afterward, it’s a bit messy and will leave your pillowcase messy but as you’d probably not do this often then I’d say it was worth the trouble.

Deluxe sample size (full size is 200ml and costs £25)

I got a few of these for Christmas and a blending sponge is always a welcome addition in subscription boxes for me. This is an eco friendly makeup sponge. These are great for applying liquid or cream face products and best used damp so it doesn’t absorb all your products.

So Eco Complexion sponge £6

I really like these lipsticks from Sleek and this is the shade Hellacious , a sort of autumnal brown with an orange hint. It’s a matte finish and lasts for ages.

Sleek Matte Me lip cream in shade Hellacious £4.99

Finally we have the Dr Botanicals cleansing bar in avocado and cucumber. I could smell this when I first opened the box and it is so lovely and fresh. You can use it on face and body and it has antibacterial properties to cleanse and purify your skin.

Dr Botanicals Cleansing Bar £19

So altogether this months box has a value of £53.49 !

Lookfantastic have a range of subscriptions available here . I’m currently subscribed on a monthly basis and pay £15 inc postage and packaging for my box. If you got this box what did you think?

For me it’s a great box, I know I will use everything and it’s really nice to get some different items like the hand mask and very fitting for this time of year!
