Lookfantastic Beauty Box April 2020

I received April’s Lookfantastic Beauty Box in exchange for an honest review. This post also appears on A Year of Boxes.

Lookfantastic Beauty Box is a UK subscription box that delivers six premium beauty and skin care products for £15.00 or about $26 CAD/month. April’s ‘Spring’ box features “brightening skincare, rejuvenating bodycare and colourful cosmetics — all things to help you feel radiant and beautiful.”

Lookfantastic the company is Europe’s top online premium beauty retailer. They carry over 22,000 products and ship to more than 200 countries.

There are four subscription options for the Beauty Box (all prices in CAD):

  • Month-to-month, $25.70/box
  • 3-month subscription, $24.84/box
  • 6-month subscription, $23.56/box
  • 12-month subscription, $22.27/box

Shipping to Canada starts at about $7/box. Shipping in the UK is free.

Each Lookfantastic Beauty Box includes a mini magazine with details on that month’s products, interviews with beauty insiders and primers on popular ingredients and/or makeup techniques, along with a peek at one of the products in the next month’s box. I really liked the ‘no makeup’ makeup tips in April’s magazine, particularly to the nod to my go-to mascara, They’re Real! by Benefit Cosmetics. (“Opt for a brown mascara instead of black — brown mascara is softer, more natural, but will still ensure your eyes stand out.”)

Bellapierre Peach Blossom Eyeshadow Palette

With three shimmers and one matte shade inside, this palette — exclusively launching in this month’s Beauty Box — is the perfect springtime edition to your makeup bag. Weightless, super-blendable and the perfect size for travelling, with a handy mirror inside. ($50.82)

This is such a pretty palette. I love the two softer shades in the middle in particular and the way the shimmer catches the light. Those two will be used up long before the others.

Lookfantastic April 2020 Amerliorate Transforming Body Lotion

Ameliorate Transforming Body Lotion

Specially formulated to treat Keratosis Pilaris (the dry, bumpy skin often found on the back of your arms), this rich moisturizer uses lactic acid to get rid of dead skin cells and reveal renewed, soft, healthy skin. Dermatologist approved. ($7.01)

I get that dry, bumpy skin from time to time but I’ve been using this lotion religiously and my arms are buttery soft.

Lookfantastic April 2020 Minetan Coffee Scrub

Minetan Coffee Scrub

Give yourself a full caffeine kick from head to toe with this exfoliating body scrub! Made from freshly ground coffee as well as an array of natural ingredients, this scrub will remove dry, flaky skin to leave you feeling fresh, soft and with a more even skin tone. ($14.02)

I used this coffee scrub again this morning and it’s the bomb! Smells amazing and makes your skin feel so smooth and moisturized. The coffee granules make a bit of a mess in the tub so you’ll be an extra minute or two rinsing them off.

Lookfantastic April 2020 Starskin 100% Camellia Oil Sheet Mask

Starskin 100% Camellia 2-Step Oil Sheet Mask

Get your glow back with this facial sheet mask — a dual-part treatment that effectively targets dry, dull skin to soothe and restore your natural radiance. Pure Camellia Seed Oil nourishes and softens skin, whilst the Niacinimde, Mulberry Bark Extract and Peony Root infused sheet mask replenishes moisture and brings a healthy, luminous complexion. ($15.78)

My skin’s more sensitive/combination than dry and I’m always worried face oils are going to make me break out so I gifted this one to a friend. May it restore her natural radiance. 😃

Lookfantastic April 2020 The Vintage Cosmetic Co slanted tweezers pink

Vintage Cosmetics Company Tweezers

These high-quality stainless-steel tweezers allow for precise and effortless brow maintenance. ($14.02)

More tweezers! I just got a pink pair in another box that I really like so I might end up these or maybe I’ll tuck them away in case the others get lost.

Lookfantastic April 2020 Erno Laslo Hydraphel

Erno Lazlo Hydraphel Skin Supplement

This calming toner is perfect for dry and sensitive skin, formulated to hydrate and repair your complexion after cleansing. With a blend of active humectants, it boosts cell renewal to encourage soft and supple skin. ($9.78)

I can’t tell if this toner is making a difference or not. I’ve been using it and my skin does feel clean and soft so maybe? I’m sorry I can’t be more helpful. Do you have a toner you swear by?

Lookfantastic beauty box April 2020 full contents

April’s Lookfantastic Beauty Box is valued at $111.43, with nearly half of that from the eyeshadow palette alone. The mask was a pass and I’m undecided on the toner but I’m still pleased with this box overall. It’s a nice mix of cosmetics and skincare available at a variety of price points and every item I’ve ever received has arrived in perfect, brand-new condition with no leaks or spills or excess packaging. Looks fantastic, too. 😉 Meet me back here in a few weeks for a review of May’s box!

  1. Love the idea of relishing some of these products because I love relish.
    Bellapierre Peach Blossom Eyeshadow Palette – can’t say that this is my fave, not sure about the colours for my colouring and shimmer might catch the light but also enhances the wrinkles.
    Ameliorate Transforming Body Lotion – have they been looking at the back of my arms?…. hey social distancing !!! o.k. o.k. – this lotion would be a keeper.
    Minetan Coffee Scrub – never been a coffee lover – Tetley only please but this does sound like a great scrub.
    Starskin 100% Camellia 2-Step Oil Sheet Mask – sounds like another winner. Bring on the natural radiance.
    Vintage Cosmetics Tweezers – always nice to have a backup pair.
    Erno Lazlo Hydraphel Skin Supplement – My home made toner works great ( diluted lemon juice ) but this would be a nice plus.
    and P.S. yes, if we are hiding behind masks when we go out we do want to exscentuate our eyes with great (brown/black for me) mascara. We all have our favourites.
    Nice box of products and as always love the pics and your writing style. Can picture you with your little bud Ben by you side. :):):)

  2. This is awesome! Would love to learn more about how you got these products to test out. I have been working with Influenster and they also offer products in exchange for an honest review and would love to work with more organizations to share their great offerings.

    1. Thanks Happy! 🥰🥰 I review this box and a few others for A Year of Boxes — they develop partnerships with the brands and boxes are sent to me for review (posted both here and on http://www.ayearofboxes.com). They may be looking for more reviewers. Maybe you want to get in touch? Love to hear if you do! ❤️
