Look Fantastic July Beauty Box: The Hydration Edition



It's time for another monthly box review, this time it's the July Look Fantastic Beauty Box which is called The Hydration Edition, and contains 6 beauty and skincare goodies from a range of brands. I think this one's such great value for money, so I'm very excited to share what's inside and let you know my first impressions on a few of the products too!

( This post contains pr samples)

About Look Fantastic Beauty Boxes

Look Fantastic Beauty Boxes are a monthly subscription service and their boxes are priced from £13 to £15 depending on the length of subscription you buy from them, with free delivery included in that price too. Every monthly box is filled with 6 beauty products worth atleast £50 and the latest edition of Elle Magazine UK too (worth £4.50), so with this box you are guaranteed to receive atleast triple in value of products each month compared to the actual box price, which I think is amazing!


July Elle Magazine

First up we are getting a copy of the July Elle UK Magazine, which is something they include in each box. I think it's such a nice extra, as I love flicking through Elle for inspiration for my blog and Instagram photos. They're also quite a pricey magazine brand too at £4.50 an issue, so it's amazing that they're included in every box!

Product Value: £4.50


Vitamasques Gold Eye Pads

First up in this month's box we are getting some Gold Eye Pads from Vitamasques, which I was very excited to try as I'm a huge sheet and eye mask fan. These ones are made with real gold extract to help brighten skin and Hyaluronic acid to plump and firm. I tried them out a few nights ago and really seemed to like them! Firstly, they look so fancy under the eyes with a pretty metallic gold leaf pattern design which was a fun bonus, they are definitely some of the prettiest eye patches I've seen before! Results wise, these didn't feel as cooling and refreshing on the eyes compared to a lot of eye patches I've tried but they did leave my eye area feeling really soft and moisturized, and also a lot plumper too. Perfect for giving tired eyes a good pamper! I also think these would be great to use before a special occasion as they left my under eye area perfectly prepped for makeup. A great little addition to this month's box!

Product Value: £5.99


Aromatherapy Associates Revive Body Gel

Next up in the box we are getting a Revive Body Gel from Aromatherapy Associates, who are a completely new brand to me. I'm yet to try this one but it smells amazing, and is packed with Grapefruit, Rosemary and Juniper essential oils that aim to stimulate circulation and leave skin feeling soft and supple. It also claims to be quick drying too, and cooling on the skin so this one sounds perfect for the warm summer months and is an ideal size to pop in your hand luggage for a holiday!

Product Value: £12


Glov On-The-Go Hydro Cleanser

Also in this month's box, we are getting a On-The-Go Hydro Cleanser Glove from the brand Glov, who are another completely new brand to me. That's one thing I love about these boxes, they are such a great way to try out lots of new brands in one place, and obviously for a much better price too! The Glove contains star-shaped fibres up to 30 times thinner than a cotton pad, and has antibacterial electrostatic properties that absorb makeup and dirt like a magnet, which sounds pretty impressive, right?

I've tried this one out a few times over the past week and I'm really impressed. It really does remove all traces of makeup, even stubborn mascara with just warm water which I wasn't expecting at all. It also feels really soft and gentle on the skin too, so this would be such a great alternative to cotton pads for anyone with sensitive skin and it's also SO much better for the environment! There's no waste at all and the packaging is even environmentally friendly too and made of starch, which is amazing. Yay to no plastic! I think it's such great addition to the box and is something I know I'll be getting so much use out of.

Product Value: £11.90


Eyeko Fat Eye Stick

Next up in this month's box we are getting a Fat Eye Stick Black Liquid Liner from the brand Eyeko, who are another new brand to me but one I've heard amazing things about from friends and fellow bloggers. I haven't had chance to try this one out yet but I'm very excited to, the liner looks like it has a really sharp and precise point, so fingers crossed!

Product Value: £12


Elemis Hydra-Balance Day Cream

Also in the box we are getting an Elemis Hydra Balance Day Cream and they are a brand I always hear such amazing things about, so I was very intrigued to finally try one of their products. This one is designed for normal to combination skin, and contains Meadowsweet Extract to help regulate oil production and Hyaluronic Acid to lock in moisture! I have been using this for the past week and so far I'm really liking it, it moisturizes the skin well, leaves it feeling soft and also gives a really nice natural glow to the skin too. It's a lightweight moisturizer, so it's perfect for the upcoming summer months which are time I tend to switch to a lighter moisturizer, so this box has come at the perfect time!

I've also noticed this one soaks up into the skin very quickly, and have found makeup applies over it very nicely too, acting as a great primer pre foundation and concealer! So, on first impressions I'm really enjoying it and haven't found any negatives so far. We're also getting great value for money with this product too as the moisturizer in this size retails for £19.10, which is more expensive than the price of the whole box, which is pretty impressive, right? Another amazing addition to this month's box!

Product Value: £19.10


Naobay Illuminating Micellar Water

Last up in this month's box, but by no means least, we are getting an Illuminating Micellar Water from the brand Naobay, who are another completely new brand to me! This one aims to purify, prepare and cleanse the skin and is enriched with green tea to protect against environmental pollution and Aloe Vera to rehydrate and sooth the skin. I've only had the chance to use this one twice, but so far I'm very impressed! It removes makeup easily, even stubborn mascara whilst still feeling so gentle and soothing on the skin, which I was really surprised about as I've found a lot of Micellar waters can feel quite harsh on my dry skin. Both times this one has left my skin feeling really fresh and looking naturally glowy, so I can definitely see this one being a product to repurchase!

Product Value: £11


Worth the price?

Look Fantastic boxes range from £13 to £15 depending on the length of subscription you buy from them, with free delivery included in that price too. This month's box has a value of over £71, which is pretty impressive, right? and is over four times the amount you are paying for the actual box, so you are definitely getting amazing value for money with this one!
If you're interested in signing up, you can use my code ‘KATEBB’ to recieve a free box when signing up to a 12 month subscription.

..and that's it! I hope you enjoying hearing about what's inside this month's Look Fantastic box, I'm so impressed with the contents for July and the value for money we are getting. I think they've nailed the mix of products perfectly, and I'm really excited to keep using them all!

Let me know if you've tried any boxes from Look Fantastic before, and your thoughts?

  1. This sounds great for me! I'm always worried about wasting money on subscription boxes because I have such sensitive skin, I usually can't use over half the products. Love the theme of this box though and my skin can always use some extra hydration. The box is so reasonably priced too, definitely worth it! Great post, I love the sound of the eye pads x
