Look Fantastic Beauty Box – February 2015

Hello my beauties. I’ve been waiting so long to do this post. It was supposed to happen with my January box, but it got lost in the mail (I had no problems getting the refund), so finally, the February box arrived. What am I talking about? My #LFBEAUTYBOX (Look Fantastic Beauty Box), of course 🙂

So, as the name implies, I got the box from the Look Fantastic website. I actually received it as a part of a (still ongoing) promo – free box when you spend £55 or more. Normally, the box costs £15 (about 20€). There are a minimum of six products per box and it’s usually worth about £50. The March 2015 box looks like it’s going to be pretty awesome – they’re promising a £71,48 value and adding 30 GHD stylers to them. I’m ordering mine today.

Anyway, I got the box at work today and I couldn’t wait to get home and open it.

It’s a nice box, very sturdy and very, very well closed up. I wouldn’t worry about anything spilling or cracking in there. It’s also kind of nifty and could be used for storage.

Upon opening, you are first faced with the product book, featuring a pretty and very photoshopped lady.

And this is what you get inside. There are a ton of these paper noodles, but I actually do like that because it adds another layer of protection. It’s good to go through the box with the booklet, though, so you don’t throw anything away 🙂

I must say that the booklet itself is really quite informative. The only thing I’m missing is the values of the products (or deluxe samples, most of them), which is why I’ll try to do the estimates myself. Each page features one of the products and talks a little about the brand as well. I’m also loving that there’s a “how to” section included where needed. Edit: the Moroccanoil had the value underneath.

Anyway, let’s talk about the products, shall we? Left below we have the Erno Laszlo Sea Mud Deep Cleansing Bar. It’s a 97 % natural exfoliating black soap made from Dead Sea mud. It’s also supposed to stimulate and cleanse the face. I’ll report back on the actual results. Anyway, this tiny sample weighs 0,6 oz and the full size product (50 oz, which is a ridiculous amount of beauty soap) costs a whopping 61,65 €. Hence, this sample is worth about 1 € (mind you, I’m not taking the packaging into account). View Post
