Lookfantastic Beauty Box – February 2016 Edition

With Valentines Day fast approaching the February LookFantastic Beauty Box has had a little makeover. Bright fuscia pink and emblazoned with a gold heart and lettering the #LFLoves box really does look the part.

Each item within the February box has been especially chosen by the Lookfantastic team because they love it so much and the idea is that we will fall in love with products just as much! So let’s take a look at this special Valentine’s Day edit and see if the contents will send hearts fluttering.

First up is one of two makeup items, the Hi Impact Eyes &Brow Perfector Palette which is brand new to Lookfantastic. Designed to give you perfect brows, the four shades can also be used for eyeliner and eyeshadow too. The palette comes with a decent sized mirror in the lid and angled brush to help you achieve the perfect brow.

The next makeup product to feature is from Lord & Berry Matte Lipstick Pencil in Intimacy. It’s a very pretty dusky pink shade which can be used in place of a traditional lipstick, although it would also work well as a lip liner. With a creamy feel upon application and a matte finish I really like this product.

Moving on we have two body care products, the first of which is the Monuspa Bali Massage & Body Oil. Formulated with a blend of apricot kernel and grape seed oils, it can be added to the bath or used in the shower to nourish and hydrate tired skin. Together with the amazing scent of relaxing sandalwood and rosewood it really brings the ultimate spa experience to your home and leaves you feeling calm and relaxed.

The second is a 30ml sample sized Bliss Pink Grapefruit and Aloe Body Butter, a deliciously scented body butter featuring refreshing pink grapefruit and soothing aloe. The coconut oil, sodium hyaluronate and vitamin hydrate and nourish the skin, working to keep your skin feeling soft and supple.

The final two items are both haircare and includes a really cute Denman Mini Keyring Brush and a 75ml travel sized bottle of KMS California Color Vitality Conditioner. Infused with lilac and ginger the conditioner helps to calm your scalp and protect the hair from damaging UV rays. Formulated with IOPS – Inside Out Protective System – it helps penetrates deep into the hair, making it appear more vibrant and glossy. Whilst I like KMS California I am a little bit disappointed that only the conditioner is included, as like most people I prefer to use the matching shampoo.

Alongside the box is also a copy of the latest Elle Magazine which is a nice extra.

This is a great value box, featuring a good array of beauty treats, and I feel Lookfantastic have definitely improved on the previous couple of month’s boxes in which we saw a few duplicate products. However I can’t help but feel the selection is a little ‘safe’ and for a Valentine’s edit I would’ve loved to have seen a lovely scented candle and a perfume miniature feature in the lineup to really make it feel extra special.

If you like the look of the Lookfantastic Beauty Box can buy a one off box for £15 including postage, or you can sign up to a discounted plan of 3, 6 or 12 months. What do you think to the February edition?
