The One with the LookFantastic November 2016 Box

This is my very first LookFantastic Beauty Box! This is a subscription I’ve had my eye on for quite some time now. On Black Friday, there was a deal that made me finally sign up. If I subscribed for 3 months, I would receive an 8-piece makeup brush set! So, of course I decided it was the right time to subscribe. Who doesn’t love freebies?!

One thing I think is great about this subscription is you can subscribe for longer periods to get a better price per box. But unlike most companies, LookFantastic still charges you monthly instead of all up front. I think that is awesome!

Another pro is that it charges you in your own country’s dollars! It’s a British subscription but there are no surprises! I chose Canadian dollars so I am able to see right up front how much I am paying! Also, you can buy the full size of almost everything you receive from your box right on their website! It’s nice because they often have sales, coupon codes, free shipping, etc.

What is it? LookFantastic Beauty Box
How much is it? $19 CAD monthly ($18 monthly for 3-month commitment, $17 monthly for 6-month commitment, and $16 monthly for 12-month commitment)
Ships to? Worldwide
Shipping costs? Free
What’s inside? 6-7 deluxe sample or full size beauty products plus an Elle Magazine

I didn’t expect to get the November box but they sent it out right away, so I guess I must be getting the December box soon! I’m a little worried though because my brush set was sent out the same day as my November box and it hasn’t arrived yet. I hope nothing goes wrong because there is no tracking!! That is one con.

Ok, let’s take a look inside the beautiful silver box!

Look Good Feel Better Angled Blending Brush
I love getting brushes in my sub boxes! I have to admit I am super lazy when it comes to washing brushes so having a lot of them helps me put off the task! This one is super soft and I use these angled brushes for my outer corner!
Retail Value: $9.50 CAD

BONUS: LookFantastic Nail File
I think this was thrown in as a bonus because it’s not listed in the booklet or on the website as part of the box! It’s so sparkly and gorgeous! These always come in handy.

Bloom and Blossom Revitalising Leg and Foot Spray
This is such an interesting product! I feel like it would have come in really handy when I was pregnant!  XD It’s for stressed and tired legs and feet! It alleviates water retention! I know I have days where I am super sore after long work hours! I’m not a big fan of the smell but I’m going to give it a try!
Retail Value: $9.25 CAD for 50 ml (full size is $18.50 for 100 ml)

MonuSkin Soothing Touch Recovery Balm
This seems like a great little face cream! It’s for sensitive or stressed skin. It is supposed to help calm skin, soothe irritation and reduce redness! I have some redness on my cheek area near my nose so I am definitely curious if that claim is true! I think this would make a great cream for the harsh winter!
Retail Value: $16.25 CAD for 25 ml (full size is $32.50 for 50 ml)

L’Oreal Professional Mythic Oil
I love a good frizz-fighting hair oil! This is a product I will use but I definitely feel like I already have so many to get through. But I am also in search of my holy grail frizz-fighter so you never know, this could be it!  😉
Retail Value: $6.45 CAD for 30 ml (full size is $21.50 for 100 ml)

ModelCo Blush Cheek Powder Sheer Pressed Powder
This is in the colour “Peach Bellini” which is sooooo pretty! Believe it or not, I only own 2 blushes that I use on the regular. I’m not a big fan of pure pink blushes so I am loving that this is a beautiful peachy colour!
Retail Value: $12.64 CAD for 3.5 g (full size is $28.88 for 8 g)

Sebastian Professional Volupt Spray
This says it is a “volume building spray-gel.” This is the only item in the box that I don’t think I will use. At least not any time soon. I only use these types of products when I am doing my hair for going out (dinner, drinks, etc.)… which is almost never!! So while I like having these products on hand, I already have a stash of hair items just like this one!
Retail Value: $9.83 CAD for 50 ml (full size is $29.50 for 150 ml)

Total Retail Value: $63.92 CAD

Final Thoughts? I’m very impressed with my first LookFantastic box. It is pretty on par with what I expect from this company. I find it’s really quality stuff they send out. I had no idea they include an Elle magazine each month, which is a nice addition! I also love the little booklet they send with it, too. It’s hard to believe the box is so cheap for such a high value with free shipping on top of it all! Now just send me good vibes that I get my free brush set in the mail soon!! I don’t want to have to take back all these nice things I said!  XD
