Look Fantastic Beauty Box January 2015


I have been getting the Look Fantastic box for the last few months and it has all been detailed on my blog if you would like to see previous boxes.  For just £15 a month you get such great quality products that for me, this is one of the best subscription boxes that there is out there.  Sadly I wasn't a lucky winner of the 20 included GHDs..had hoped to win one of them, but I still love the box!
Now we are in a new year and I am hoping this box continues because I am so impressed with it and the January Box is amazing, there is nothing I dislike or wouldn't use and this is what was inside.

Look Fantastic Beauty Box January 2015

Look Fantastic Beauty Box January Contents 2015

Firstly the box, it is always so well designed and strong, not at all flimsy and you can see the 'Look Fantastic' logo clearly visible on the front and inside, there is nothing to spoil the surprise as to what might be inside (unless you have looked for spoilers) because the card which details the contents is hidden inside.  

So this month I have been treated to:

Michael Van Clarke pre-wash treatment

Michael Van Clarke is a hair brand I am quite familiar with and have me the great man himself at a blogger event he hosted in his West End salon.  The Life Extending Haircare pre-wash Treatment is something I am a fan of as well as the '3 more inches' idea, which I wrote about HERE.  Essentially it isn't about adding or encouraging your hair to grow 3 more inches, it is about the unique formulation which naturally slows down the ageing process allowing the hair to stay stronger and healthier during its lifetime, so it can grow naturally thicker, longer and more lustrous.


Molton Brown is comes next and as a brand, it is one I don't feel I have tried too much of. I have had the odd sample here and there, but have never exhausted the products out there. This box has given me the Templetree Bodywash Which is described as being "A blissful bath and shower gel blended with moisturising algae extract and purifying templetree flower extract". It also includes Jasmine, Fruity Rose and Sandalwood and it smells absolutely amazing, I cannot wait to give this a try!


Another haircare product next with Philip Kingsley, whom for many is synonymous for his elasticizer. This box however brings me a product I have never tried before with the Daily Damage Defence. This is a leave-in protective conditioning spray which adds elasticity and provides defence from daily heat styling, breakage and environmental effects whilst adding shine and manageability for all hair types.

Nuxe comes next with a product I have tried before but really like. The Creme Fraiche masque is said to quench the thirst of the driest skin types to leave your face feeling smooth and moisturised not to mention radiant.


Gatineau Collagen Expert is the final skincare item within this box and it is a sachet sample.  Designed to revive and rejuvenate your eyes with clever eye compresses which are drenched in soothing marine-based collagen solution. They are also said to help reduce dark shadows, plum out wrinkles and relax the eye contour.

The final item in this box is not skincare or bodycare and nor is it for your hair. Instead what we have is a tube of MyVitamins which are dissolvable in water and are said to make a great tasting drink. Effervescent tablets are ideal for anyone looking to increase their intake of vitamins for a healthier lifestyle.

I have to admit, I am not the best at remembering to take vitamins or indeed any tablet, I always need to set a reminder in my phone which literally shouts at me to get on with it. So I will attempt to give these a go and see how it goes. The tube has 20 tablets in it which is an odd number as it isn't enough for a month.


So that is my January box and it is worth over £44 in total, which is pretty amazing value for money when I paid just £15 including delivery.

What do you think to the January Box?

  11. This is a really nice subscription box, I used to have a birchobx and ipsy but unfortunately I have been having financial issues that hinder me from continuing with them. I haven't tried any of the products in this box but I am really interested in the hair care products especially since I haven't even heard of the brands before.

  12. I have not had the LF beauty box for the last 2 months and I think I would have been disappointed with this one as I have had a few of the bits in other beauty boxes. The first couple boxes were amazing but I think I am just going off the whole beauty box thing x

  16. My box was pretty much the same as yours , the body wash is a complete bargain it's normally around £10 for our sized bottles I got the eucalyptus which I'm not that keen on . Great review I will be doing one on my Blog for Friday of the products I received. I won't be getting the next one I prefer Birchbox. xox

  17. I'm going to be honest, I was really dissapointed with this months one. I'm in two minds as to what to do, loved the first few but I didn't like the last two so don't know whether to carry it on, but I'm worried I'll miss out on some good products! lol x

  28. Anyone else have a reaction to the Gatinaeu Eye Compresses? After I took them off my skin was red and blotchy as if they had chemically burned the area they were on. Faded after about half hour but was still scary. Just wondering if it was just me and im allergic to something in them or whether anyone else had the same reaction?

  29. They do looks like good size samples
