Look Fantastic Beauty Box April 2020 – Unboxing and Product Reviews

There is something about being in a lock-down that makes you even more excited to received little treats every month! Look Fantastic was as always the first beauty box to arrive, in gorgeous purple and orange colours.

Look Fantastic Beauty Box April 2020 4

The theme this month was all about Spring, containing products that are meant to make you feel radiant and beautiful! This beauty box always comes with a quote under the lid and this month it said: “Hello Spring we missed you”.

BelláPierre Peach Blossom Palette

Gosh, I hate mini eyeshadow palettes. They never contain enough to create full or versatile looks and so they always get forgotten at the back of my drawer. Wasteful.

On the plus side, this palette looks cute, I love the peachy colour. It contains 4 colours, three simmers and one matte. An intense orange, a silvery green, a light peachy and a coppery brown. Beautiful colours but not a versatile palette.

The quality of the colours was also not great. If this was a £5-10 palette I’d be more ok with it but £28.99 is ridiculous, even though there is more product per pan here than a lot of other palettes, the intensity of the shadows is dissapointing. I wanted to say atleast they blend well, but not sure I can judge that really, given how light the colours are to begin with.

This palette contians 7.2g and lasts for 24M. SCORE = 6/10

 

Erno Lazlo Hydraphel Skin

This toner is very dissapointing. The ingredients are super simple and it contains fragrance, colours and parabens if you avoid them. There isn’t much to nourish your skin, it’s so plain ingredient-wise that I didn’t even want to waste materials to test if the pH is correct.

This 15mL bottle retails for£5.58 and lasts for 12M. SCORE = 4/10

 

Ameliorate Transforming Body Lotion

This body lotion contains some good ingredients. It has a thin white cream consistency and a baby powder smell. The smell is…addicting and very comforting!

Ameliorate Transforming Body Lotion

It feels nice on the skin but takes a moment to be fully absorbed. This 30mL tube lasts for 12M and retails for £4. SCORE = 8/10

Starskin 100% Camellia 2-Step Oil Sheet Mask

This is a two-step mask where you use the oil capsule first to clean the skin and then apply the mask. The mask itself contains a lot of nourishing ingredients and it’s pleasant to use.

Starskin 100% Camellia 2-Step Oil Sheet Mask

This is a one-use mask which will leave your skin feeling moisturised and soft. Remember though that masks are not to be considered as main skincare but rather addons.

This mask retails for £9 which is a little steep for a one-off use mask but atleast it contains good ingredients so it might be worth it as a treat every now and again. SCORE = 9/10

 

Minetan Coffee Scrub

Coffee scrubs are so yesterday but I did enjoy using this one. However, I wouldn’t really recommend physical scrubs as they can damage the skin. Look for products containing AHA and BHAs instead.

Minetan Coffee Scrub

This scrub was pleasant to use although like many physical scrubs, it can get a little painful on the hand especially, while you are rubbing it around. The skin is left feeling smooth though.

This satchel contains 30g, lasts for 6M and retails for £9.95. SCORE = 8/10

 

Vintage Cosmetics Company Tweezers

Everyone needs a pair of tweezers or two but what is going on recently, so many beauty boxes included a pair and I ended up with…too many!

Vintage Cosmetics Company Tweezers

Nevertheless, I do like these vintage style ones, they are very simple but elegant. The pointy ends are neither too thick or too thin which is also great.

These are a full size tweezers which retail for £8. SCORE = 8/10
