Look Fantastic Beauty Box: April

Hey Sweeties,

Is it me, or has Look Fantastic really upped their game recently with the design of the boxes?! Last month’s (here) was beautiful, and then it gets topped (and beaten) with April’s! Product wise, I’ll be honest, while there are a couple of lovely products included, overall it hasn’t excited me hugely. Lately I am finding I am getting duplicates of products (and never the ones I want seconds of), but that’s not to say I haven’t discovered some real gems during my subscription to Look Fantastic, the February box particularly was a real highlight of late.

Let’s have a look at the products featured in the Look Fantastic April beauty box:

If you’re someone that either doesn’t like scented products or owing to sensitive skin and other conditions, can’t have scented products then this Bloom & Blossom Bath & Shower Gel is for you. However, while I don’t like everything to be scented, I do love (and insist upon) a good scented shower gel so while this product was perfectly pleasant to use, I need my shower gels to be floral and/or fruity. Speaking of floral and fruity, have you checked out my latest review of The Body Shop Polynesian Island Tiare range?

I love Elemis as a brand so I was delighted to see another of their products in this month’s box. The British Botanical Hand & Nail Butter is lovely to use, absorbs quickly and leaves hands lovely and moisturised. The only thing I would say that prevents me from totally loving this product, and ironically goes against the above paragraph, is because it’s too scented. When I say scented, the easiest way for me to describe it is medicinal -it has that kind of scent that really gets in and up your nose. It’s not horrible, but it definitely won’t be for everyone.

As soon as I saw the Rituals Miracle (hand) Scrub in the box, I knew I was going to love it before I even used it. I love Rituals as a brand and there’s so much more I want to try; their foundation particularly is still one of my all time favourites (review here). This ‘ultra softening’ hand scrub is gritty, beautifully scented (Ginseng & Ginkgo) and leaves hands feeling gorgeously smooth; without a doubt, the star of the box.

I’ve had the Balance Me Super Toning Body Polish and Tanworx Tan Maintainer before in previous boxes, and I haven’t yet had an opportunity to try the Briogeo Don’t Despair, Repair! Deep Conditioning Mask… but I will as soon as I have the time!

Have you guys tried anything featured in April’s Look Fantastic Beauty Box or maybe you’ve purchased the box yourself? Thoughts?

Until next time x

    I have enough beauty boxes (I’m currently subscribed to two each month!) but Look Fantastic seems like great value for money – you always receive large, full size products! Much better than other boxes where you only get tiny little samples!

      You receive a mixture of full size and sample products but I agree, you get a really good mix each month, particularly if you like trying out new skincare brands and products. 🙂
