LOOK FANTASTIC APRIL 2017 BEAUTY BOX

Look Fantastic April 2017 Beauty Box

This month's Look Fantastic Beauty Box is themed around natural beauty and is all about using these products to enhance the beauty you were born with. There's a good mixture of makeup, skincare and haircare in this box, so it will suit just about everyone.

My favourite product in this month's box* (from £13 per month from Look Fantastic) is, of course, the sheet mask. I really like the Vitamasques Pomegranate Moisturising, Firming & Lifting Sheet Mask (worth £) and you get one of these scentless, one-use face masks in the box. This is a great sheet mask for morning use as it really firms your skin and hydrates it - I love to use it before my primer.

Omorovicza Cleansing Foam

Another skincare product in the box that i've enjoyed using is the travel-size Omorovicza Cleansing Foam (full-size worth £44). I usually avoid foaming cleansers as the foaming agent is typically Sodium Lauryl Sulfate, which really dries out the skin. This one, however, is Sulfate-free and is very gentle on the skin. I wouldn't use it to take makeup off, but it's a nice morning cleanser to refresh your skin.

The final skincare product in this month's box is travel-size moisturiser. I haven't tried the Madara Smart Antioxidants Fine Line Minimising Day Cream (full-size worth £35). This cream is designed to be used by dry to very dry skin, so I think this will be a good one for me. It's anti-ageing, deeply moisturising and has great antioxidant properties. It's organic and contains botanical greens such as lichen, moss and fern. This is a good opportunity to try the cream and see if it's for you.


Onto makeup, there's a Laura Geller Balance & Brighten Foundation in Fair (worth £23.40). I don't like this powder foundation at all as I don't get what it does. To me, it's too sparkly and not the right colour to use as a powder foundation. It also doesn't give great coverage. I think it's best used as an all-over illuminator, but there are much better illuminating powders out there than this.

Merci Handy Love & Hand Cleansing Gel

A product in the box that's a kind of makeup for legs, is a sample size of the This Works Perfect Legs Skin Miracle (full-size worth £37). This lovely cream-gel serum gives your legs a touch of colour, disguises imperfections and gives them a good dose of moisture and other conditioning vitamins. It's the perfect product for summer, if you want to give your legs a sun-kissed glow and make them look healthy when you bare them without tights.

There's also a haircare product in the box. The travel-size Alterna Caviar CC Cream 10-in-1 Complete Correction Leave-In Hair Perfector (full-size worth £20.80) is a really good leave-in conditioner. It has 10 haircare benefits, including UV protection, heat protection, increasing hair strength, adding shine and making styling easier. This one is definitely a winner.

Finally, there's one of the full-size Merci Handy Love & Hand Cleansing Gels in the scent New Wave (worth £2.90). I don't like these and I've said this before. I think that they are too heavily chemically scented and the fragrance they put in doesn't disguise it, but instead mixes with it to make it smell even worse than a standard hand sanitiser. This one is supposed to have a fresh ocean scent, but I just can't use it.
