Look Fantastic Beauty Box May 2020 – Unboxing and Product Reviews

It’s 2nd of May while I’m writting this post and the Look Fantastic box has already arrived! Which other beauty box gets delivered so fast?!

This monht’s box was minty green which I personally absolutely loved. How unique is that! The theme this month was “Botanical” and the box contained 6 products of which only 2 were full size.

This beauty box always comes with a quote under the lid and this month it said: “Get lost in the wildernness, you were born to be free”.

The Look Fantastic box also always comes with a small monthly Beauty Magazine that has a little more information about the products contained and some other featured products To subscribe to Look Fantastic and get £5 off your first box click here.

Magnitone London Wipe Out Eco Friendly Microfibre Cleansing Cloth

This cloth is meant to be used wet to remove makeup. It definetely works but I always prefer using this type of products with a cleanser, to remove makeup faster, more efficiently and also to reduce the friction. Don’t drag clean your skin!

The cloth is a good size, feels soft and is of high quality. It also has a little edge that you can hang it from to dry. It can be washed at 30oC and according to the brand, re-used thousands of times.

This is a full size cloth which retails for £10. SCORE = 8/10

 

Dr Lipp Natural Moisturising Colour Lip Tint in Sweet Potato

This lip balm has a light red colour which is almost not visible at all on the lips. It is made from 4 natural ingredients and is cruelty free.

Like most of the Dr Lipp balms, the texture is very thick and not the easiest to spread around but it moisturises the lips for a while.

This cute little 4mL tube is travel size which lasts for 12M and retails for £3. SCORE = 8/10

 

Eyeko Mini Eyebrow Gel

This eyebrow gel tames unruly eyebrows and provides a hold. The product is a thin black liquid which adds a little colour to the hairs but doesn’t hold on the skin. So this means this is a product for your already existing eyebrow hairs, not for the parts of the eyebrow you shade extra.

It takes a moment to fully dry but atleast the texture is great. The hairs feel natural and not sticky or hard. Infact, the hairs feel soft and almost conditioned which could be due to the ingredients such as keratin and Gingo Bilabo.

This 4mL tube is travel size, lasts for 6M and retails for £10. SCORE = 8/10

Avant Ultimate Hyaluronic Acid Resurfacing Duo Moisturiser

I have to say I am really not a fan of Avant. It’s contantly in beauty boxes, ANY BEAUTY BOXES, I literally have more than 15 products from the brand without ever purchasing. This would have been great if the products were worth the money but they are not. The products are not usually bad but the ingredients vs price are absolutely ridiculous.

Avant Ultimate Hyaluronic Acid Resurfacing Duo Moisturiser

This product is no exception. It’s ok, feels nice on the skin, contains some good ingredients but overall it’s not exceptional and it doesn’t match the price.

This 50mL tube is full size, lasts for 12M and retails for £100! It’s just a no-no, there are creams half and even third of the price with three times better ingredients. SCORE = 6/10

 

Korres Hydra-Biome Probiotic Superdose Face Mask

This mask is very easy to use. It is placed on dry, clean skin for 10-15 minutes and then rinsed off. It was a pleasant experience and it left my skin feeling soft and moisturised.

The product says that this mask is suitable for all skin types but especially good for sensitive skin. I have to dissagree with that one, I wouldn’t recommend this product to sensitive skin types initially (build your skin barrier first with simpler products and ingredients like hyaluronic acid and ceramides and then attempt more complex products). This product contains A LOT of ingredients, including extracts which contain many different compounds in them and so this means that this product is an absolute nightmare for sensitive skin as the potential for reaction is not only high but it will be impossible to figure out which compound cause the issue.

Korres Hydra-Biome Probiotic Superdose Face Mask

There are many good ingredients in here, much better than many masks out there. This 20mL tube is travel size, lasts for 6M and retails for £9.40. SCORE = 9/10

 

Balance Me Hyaluronic Plumping Mist

This is a hyaluronic acid spray and that’s great! Hyaluronic acid is a must-have ingredient and a spray is very easy to use. It also contains some other nice ingredients such as oils and extracts but unfortunately, like most natural products it has a lemony off-scent which I personally don’t like. It also contains many irritants, so not ideal for sensitive skin.

Balance Me Hyaluronic Plumping Mist

It feels like water on the skin and is absorbed quickly leaving the skin soft. Remember to always follow with moisturiser after hyaluronic acid, otherwise you risk drying your skin instead of moisturising it!

This 10mL spray is travel size which lasts for 6M, is vegan, and retails for £10. SCORE = 8/10

Look Fantastic Beauty Box May 2020 4

Overall, I was dissapointed with this month’s box. Once again it’s a beautifully large box with a lot of tiny products inside. Look Fantastic is making a habit of travel size products and I have to say, if this keeps happening, it will be the next box I unsubscribe to! 

Initial box score, in terms of products and first feelings = 6/10

Overall box score after product testing (average of product scores) = /10

Box value = £142.4

Star product = Korres Hydra-Biome Probiotic Superdose Face Mask
