Latest In Beauty is starting 2021 with the Fabulous ‘What’s Hot 2021’ box. It is said to be worth £128 and inside the box are 13 products which cover skincare, body care, hair care and of course makeup.
Priced at just £32*, with 15% off if you are a LiB Pro, this box is described as bringing hot new topics; from new industry names and the most innovative formulas, to key ingredients, cult classics and mindful brands. 
We're seeing a shift in what people are expecting from their products, so we're delivering on the things you're really passionate about with this carefully curated edit. Teaming up with Fabulous, we've sourced some of the best formulas and tools that tick those boxes and will be on your radar this year.
It is incredible value for money at £32 for a box which contains 13 products and I am really happy to see the likes of L'Occitane featured with one of my favourite hand creams as well as the recently launch Garnier Shampoo Bar, which I am hoping to try. For me, this box has a little bit of everything and if you want to know what the rest of the contents are, then they are: 


  • DR BOTANICALS Moroccan Rose Superfood Facial Oil 30ml - Full Size
  • E.L.F COSMETICS Holy Hydration! Face Cream 50g - Full Size
  • GARNIER Shampoo Bar Hydrating Coco & Aloe Vera 60g - Full Size
  • BAREMINERALS® GEN NUDE Powder Blush – On The Mauve
  • SUNDAY RAIN Dry Body Scrub Coffee + Vanilla 170g - Full Size
  • SKINGREDIENTS Cleanse Off Mitt - Full Size
  • KIEHL’S SINCE 1851 Ultra Facial Cream 7ml 
  • L’OCCITANE Shea Butter Hand Cream 30ml - Full Size
  • BOTANICS Pillow Mist – Lavender & Sweet Marjoram 100ml - Full Size
  • IT’S A 10 Miracle Leave-In Product 59.1ml - Full Size
  • BOOTS INGREDIENTS Bakuchiol Serum 30ml - Full Size
  • BATISTE Blush Floral & Flirty 200ml - Full Size
  • THE HAIR LAB BY MARK HILL Working Styling Spray 200ml - Full Size
As you can see, 11 of the 13 products are full size and  of the two that are not, they are a decent deluxe size, giving you enough of that product to get a decent feel for whether or not you like it.

This box has just launched with Latest in Beauty and if you are ready to try some much loved products from brands such as L'Occitane and Boots as well as some new and interesting products such as the Shampoo Bar from Garnier, then this is one to consider.

Lookfantastic Restoration Edit January 2021

Restoration is the theme for the January LookFantastic Beauty Box and their focus for 2021 is to spread self-love. The hope is that from this months box, right through to December you will feel confident, uplifted and take those much-needed moments of escape and stress of daily life.
Lookfantastic Restoration Edit January 2021
This months box, which is a beautiful purple colour, features 6 products across skincare and makeup, some are brands you will recognise and some will be ones you might not be too familiar with.

First out of my box from Starskin is the Hollywood Hand Model Hand Mask Gloves. Described as being a hand mask design to hydrate dry hands and cuticles, this product draws on an innovative double layer technology that produces a sauna affect to help repair condition and suffering even the roughest of hands. 
Lookfantastic Restoration Edit January 2021
The gloves are infused with softening Shea Butter alongside a blend of 16 Botanical Extracts and Oils which coat the hands with a powerful serum l, helping to increase hydration and visible suppleness. There is also a unique blend of Goji Berry, Macadamia Nut and Olive Oil which work together to deeply nourish whilst Liquorice and Peony Roots are included to visibly heal and brighten the hands. 

The second product comes from SVR with the Intense Moisturising Cream and it has been designed specifically for dry and sensitive skin.
Lookfantastic Restoration Edit January 2021
Fortified with Physiological Sugars and 60% Physio-Adapted Water, the formula, which is really lightweight, absorbs quickly to lock in moisture to deliver an immediate, intense and continuous blast of hydration.all of this without being overly greasy ticks a lot of boxes.

Up next is Grow Gorgeous with their Balance Shine enhancing overnight mask which is designed to nourish the hair from root to top.
Lookfantastic Restoration Edit January 2021
Designed to work overnight, this mask deeply conditions, enhancing your hair’s natural shine, leaving your hair soft and frizz-free, but that’s not all! Thanks to an impressive list of ingredients, as well as working your hair, it also targets the scalp. You’ll find the inclusion of Hyaluronic Acid which smooths and moisturises the hair to give it a shiny finish, Tung Wood which works to fight frizz whilst also targeting heat damage and then we have blended Green Tea Extract and Fruit Acid whose job is to nourish hair from the inside out, smoothing the cuticles which in turn works to enhance your hair’s natural gloss and shine. 

Moving onto makeup and the first product within this box comes from So Eco with their Complexion Sponge.
Lookfantastic Restoration Edit January 2021
Designed to give that flawless makeup up, this sponge is said to be suitable for use with cream and liquid products. Crafted from latex-based foam, this sponge has a specially shaped design for seamless blending plus a pointed tip for hard-to-reach crevices.

From Sleek we have the Matte Me Liquid Lipstick which is described as being an Ultra Smooth Matte Lip Cream and within the box will be one of four shades. I have the shade French Fancy.
Lookfantastic Restoration Edit January 2021
French Fancy is a beautiful shade of pink, it isn't bright Barbie Pink, but is most definitely a pink. Lightweight on the lips, it has an intense pigment which as well as giving a matte finish, is a comfortable finish and doesn’t leave your lips feeling as though they might crack if you move them.

Finally within this months box is the dr Botanicals with the Avocado and Cucumber Cleansing Bar (some boxes have the Verso eye cream as an alternative product).
Lookfantastic Restoration Edit January 2021
This is the product that you catch a whiff of as soon as you remove the lid from the box and it’s delightful. Described as being a gentle, antibacterial cleansing soap, it’s job is to cleanse and purify both the face and body. It is infused with calming ingredients such as avocado and cucumber, hence the name to soften and nourish the skin and it foams into a lather pretty well when it comes into contact with warm water.

This months box is quite the mix, not one I feel quite fits with the theme. Restoration for me, within the beauty term means to strip it back and start again - masks for the face, hands, hair and body as well as products to help you relax, unwind and just take time to be yourself. That said, the products are absolutely lovely.

Lookfantastic is, as I am sure you will know a monthly beauty box subscription service which costs as little as £15 per month here* and every month the claim is that you are guaranteed to receive a box of products worth at least £50.
