Unboxing: the Look Fantastic January Box

8 January 2019

New year, new beauty boxes! I had to look around for the Look Fantastic January Box, because DPD thought to leave it elsewhere in my street – and mentioned a wrong house number on the delivery notice as well!

Thankfully I did find it back (thank you, neighbour on the other side of the street!) and here it is: the first Look Fantastic Box of the year!

About Look Fantastic

If you are not familiar with the concept: Look Fantastic is one of the biggest online beauty stores, originating from the UK. The beautybox is a monthly subscription box. Every month, you get a beauty box with six luxury products inside.

Those products are not all full size, but also travel or even sample size. On the upside, this box features some very nice brands! In the December box, I found a lovely product from Illamasqua, and brands like Eve Lom, Emma Hardie and Philip Kingsley have been in this box as well. So if you love skincare and you like trying some of the more high end brands, this is your box.

Theme: Clean Beauty

Every box has its own theme, and the Look Fantastic January Box has Clean Beauty. With the new year starting, everyone wants to start clean – with a lot of New Years resolutions on top!

Look Fantastic kicks off the year with a ‘beauty-detox’: keeping your beauty routine ‘clean’ – literally and figuratively. Using clean products for the best results, but also go through your old beauty stash. Perhaps it is time for some cleaning?

The lid of the Look Fantastic Box always features a word to go with the theme. This month, it’s Resfeber. Good word for a fresh start of the new year!


The tangled feelings of fear and excitement before a journey begins.

Box contents

This month’s box contents are nothing to cry about! I’ve been a Look Fantastic subscriber for almost a year now, and it still manages to surprise me every single month.

I also LOVE the colour of the box this month: a soft, powdery blue. So this box is going to get a good spot in my beauty stash as well (who said anything about cleaning…).

So, without further ado, here are the contents of the Look Fantastic January Box:

Dr. Paw Paw – Original Clear Balm (25 ml)
I have hears so much about this brand, but have never tried it myself. So excited to get some in this box! According to the booklet, this balm is good for everything: use it on dry or rough patches of skin, dab a little on dry lips or rub some into those split hair ends.

Swell – Ultimate Protect en Renew Serum (30 ml)
I received a lot of serums in the Goodiebox lately, so here I was thinking I’d have to add another to the stash… but this one is actually for your hair! According to the booklet a little goes a long way, and it works miracles on dry hair and split ends.

Bellapierre – Banana Setting Powder (4 gr.)
The last Goodiebox featured another Bellapierre product, so by now I am really curious about this brand! This setting powder fixates your makeup and makes your skin look brighter and more radiant.

First Aid Beauty – Coconut Skin Smoothie Priming Moisturizer
Yes, a FAB product! Love those – I recently bought a set for myself. This product is a primer / moisturizer crossover. You can use it as a primer underneath your makeup, but also as a moisturizer without the makeup. That last part works great for me, because I rarely have time to put on concealer, foundation, contouring and everything else. Can’t wait to try this!

Vitamasques – Marine Gold Dust Sheet Mask
Inspired by Korean Skin Care, this sheet mask contains real gold dust! There are four different types spread out in the beauty boxes. Mine had a Marine Sheet Mask, which appears to be for plumping. Very curious about this one!

Popband – Active Hair Ties
The last thing in the box are…. hair ties? These come in four shimmery colours, so super handy for work – or a workout! These fancy colours will also look great around your wrist if you want to let your hair down later!

So, that’s it for the Look Fantastic January Box! I am really happy with this box and will be trying everything out!
