The One with the LookFantastic April 2017 Box

Oh my gosh, you guys! I’m obsessed with this box design! It’s so simplistically beautiful. I can’t stop staring. I love the peach colours and the flower because it reminds me of spring! And the great thing about LookFantastic boxes is they are such a good size that you can reuse or repurpose them! This month’s box is the “Natural Beauty” edition so everything included is organic or natural brands.

This is the last box of my subscription. It’s bittersweet because I love this subscription based on the items I receive! But I just can’t get on board with their customer service. I’ve had several issues. When I pay for something, I expect good customer service – I want Ipsy level good! But LookFantastic has disappointed me many times now. The latest blunder is never receiving a replacement item from last month’s box they were supposed to send me… >_<

What is it? LookFantastic Beauty Box
How much is it? $19 USD 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 deluxe sample or full size beauty products plus an Elle Magazine

Laura Geller Baked Balance & Brighten Foundation
I received this foundation in “fair.” This month and last month I got items that were for light skin. It makes me wonder if everyone gets these same colours or if they send out varieties. Because that’s really not fair for darker skin tones. Anyway, this is a brand I’ve heard of before but I’ve never tried. I’ve also never tried a foundation like this before! It’s lightweight and is supposed to colour correct your skin. It looks like it will be a nice foundation for days you want a lighter finish.
Retail Value: $9.29 CAD for 1.8 g (full size is $46.46 for 9 g)

Alterna Caviar CC Cream 10-in-1 Complete Correction Leave-In Hair Perfector
Wow, product names just keep getting longer and longer! This is one of those hair products that I have a million of but I will definitely get to using at some point. It has 10 benefits for your hair – moisture, shine, smoothness, softness, UV protection, manageability, strength, anti-breakage, heat protection and light hold!
Retail Value: $8.08 CAD for 25 ml (full size is $48.50 for 150 ml)

Omorovicza Cleansing Foam
This is an expensive cleanser! I couldn’t imagine ever spending $100 on a full size cleanser. It better be magic! This is one of those items that I’m happy to try and have a small size of but even if I fall in love, there’s no way I would buy the full size.
Retail Value: $16.67 CAD for 25 ml (full size is $100 for 150 ml)

Madara Smart Antioxidants Fine Line Minimising Day Cream
I’m 30 years old and over the last year I have noticed my laugh lines getting deeper as well as some forehead lines. Without makeup, it’s not so noticeable. With makeup? I swear it clings to every little line!! So I’m always happy when I see anti-aging skincare! This one delivers intense hydration, reverses the first signs of aging, and smooths out fine lines while natural antioxidants provide continuous defence to preserve collagen and promote resilience and firmness of the skin!
Retail Value: $24.78 CAD for 20 ml (full size is $61.95 for 50 ml)

This Works Perfect Legs Skin Miracle
This product is supposed to combat skin imperfections, discolourations and scars on your legs. It contains Arnica which helps fade bruising and Vitamins C and E to help even out skin tone. If this works (hehe), it would be great to try out in the upcoming leg showing season! Dresses, rompers, shorts, oh my! I just can’t see 10 ml lasting many uses when you need to use it on two legs!
Retail Value: $5.46 CAD for 10 ml (full size is $65.49 for 120 ml)

Vitamasques Pomegranate Sheet Mask
This is Korean skincare inspired and is moisturizing, firming, and lifting! It has a triple layer sheet technology that enhances the moisture content within the mask, which leads to increased absorption rate within the skin. I’m not sure if most sheet masks use that technology or not! But it sounds interesting!
Retail Value: $7.06 CAD (one sheet)

Merci Handy Love & Hand Cleansing Gel
I got this in the scent “New Wave” and it smells great! These are always really handy to have around. I like to keep one in my purse and in my car so that I can use it on the go when soap and water aren’t readily available!
Retail Value: $5.03 CAD (full size)

Total Retail Value: $76.37 CAD

Final Thoughts? I’m actually so frustrated by how much I love this box! I would probably keep subscribing if it weren’t for having so many customer service issues. I’m unfortunately going to be losing my $22.79 CAD a month price so if I subscribe again in the future, I’ll have to pay whatever it is now since the prices went up while I was already subscribed. This is such a good box for people who love skin care products! It was also nice to receive 7 items this month instead of 6!

  1. This really seems like a nice box! It is indeed sort of expensive, so yeah, you’d expect good delivery service… Even though I love receiving these boxes. I stopped all subscription programs, because I never use up my products and you end up with a lot of stuff haha :D. xoxo Sarah
