Look Fantastic April Beauty Box

The LookFantastic Beauty box is one I have raved about on my blog for bringing together great products from the site which make for one great box. This months box arrived on Good Friday which was a bit of surprise and once again it is packed full of brands that I am a fan of as well as some that I have not come across or used.

Korres is a brand I really like, especially the lip butters. Since becoming a beauty box subscriber I have been lucky enough to try quite a few more and today this box features Calendula Soap. Okay, so soap is not the most exciting product in the world, but it is one of those items you always need.  Korres describe this soap as being "A glycerine-based mild soap suitable for both the face and whole body. Calendula possesses emollient and mild antiseptic properties, while vitamin E protects and conditions the skin". It is Dermatologically Tested, Mineral Oil Free and Silicone Free and perfect for those with dry and/or sensitive skin. This soap is worth around £2.

The Balance Me Revitalising Hand and Body Wash comes next and again, anyone who is a regular reading of my blog will know that Balance Me is one of my favourite brands. A naturally foaming wash which features a feel good aroma and skin-boosting blend, to cleanse and rapidly rehydrate dry, sensitive skin making it perfect for the whole family. Using a blend of calming mandarin with cleansing grapefruit, balancing bergamot and rejuvenating sweet orange, as well as a hint of mint to give a beautifully refreshing scent to help soothe the mind throughout the day. The natural surfactants used luxuriously foam and clean the skin without stripping or drying it, leaving hands smooth and hydrated with every wash. This product has a value of around £6

Next up is a product that I have already handed to my mister to blog about and that is a mini tub of TIGI Bed Head Manipulator. He has short spikey hair which I am hoping he will find quite useful. It smells absolutely amazing and is designed to help create a textured matte finish.  RRP £3.99

Inika come next with a Eye Pencil in Caviar Black. Inika is a brand I have come across from reading blogs but not a brand I have tried.  I am not a wearer of eyeliner, so this product has already been given to a friend of mine who does, so I will be interested to see how she gets on with it.  Formulated with natural organic ingredients the Inika eyeliner has a smooth, creamy texture which is said to glide effortlessly onto the skin with longer lasting staying power.  This has an RRP £13.50

The last two products for me are an odd choice to include and for me are quite disappointing. The first is the CB12 Safe Breath Mouthwash which is described as being a refreshing mint and menthol mouth wash that provides an instant effect. CB12 is a long-lasting mouth rinse, giving you confidence for up to 12 hours. Bad breath is a build-up of bacteria in the mouth, found between the teeth, in gum pockets, or on the back of your tongue. The zinc acetate neutralises sulphur gases in the mouth and blocks the formation of substances that cause bad breath. Containing 0.05% of sodium fluoride, this mouthwash is designed to help reduce plaque build up and prevent tooth decay.  It has a value of around £3.

Forza Multivitamins For Women is the final item and yeah they do absolutely nothing for me whatsoever. Designed to provide the body with all the nutrients and vitamins it needs during dieting, the Forza multivitamins are specifically tailored to the needs of women. With calcium, vitamin C, biotin, zinc and six types of B vitamins, this month's supply of capsules ensures that your body still receives everything it needs to maintain healthy during the cutting down of calories.  None of which I need and nor am I dieting so they are destined for the rubbish bin, to purchase they cost £7.49 for a box of 30 tablets.



So the April Box, which is worth around £36, is perhaps the worst LookFantastic Beauty Box I have had to date, but out of the six products found inside, only two of them are ones I was not impressed with and two others have found homes with the mister and a close friend. What are your thoughts on this months box?

  1. I love the sound of the soap as I have sensitive skin, not so keen on the idea of the vitamins as not everyone will need them so a rather strange addition to the box I think.

  2. I love tigi hair products and would probably love that :) I love the variety you get in the box but it would be nice for them to perhaps include a few more sneaky make-up bits and bobs ;) hehe

  3. There's some brands there I'd have loved but then I'd also have been a bit disappointed with some so a bit of a mixed one from my pov. I do miss the LF boxes but am proud of myself for not getting them anymore lol xx

  4. I loved beauty boxes, but what I didn't like was how some products would go to waste. The case in point for your box here being those vitamin pills which are destined for the bin! I stopped subscribing to mine a while ago as I was ending up with a build up of stuff I wasn't using >_< x

  11. Sounds like a bit of an anticlimax after the joy of getting Good Friday post, but it would be really good value, if only you needed it all!

  16. This is the best thing that I love about subscription boxes. You get to try different brands that you haven't heard of before.

  17. I keep looking longingly at these beauty boxes, not sure which one to choose

  18. The diet vitamin pills seems an odd one to include. I hadn't realised that beauty boxes contained such things at all.

  21. An interesting box! Too bad you're not using the vitamins. I take supplements everyday to keep under control stress, fatigue and some chronic issues I have..I would have used these for sure!

  22. The first four products look and sound amazing. I'm a huge fan of Bed Head and Balance Me are such a great brand, unsure about the vitamins and mouth wash - They don't exactly wow me x

  26. I have to agree, the diet pills would do nothing for me either but I like the other prodcuts and I'm a big fan of Korres, their products always smell so good.
