What can I say, all the interesting ones do not ship to Slovenia, so my first beauty box had to wait for a while to be chosen. :D For those of you who are unfamiliar with the “box” phenomenon – you buy surprise box without (usually) knowing anything about it. You get at least one full sized product and rest are either smaller sized or baggie testers.
Only one that I liked and was available to me was Lookfantastic Beauty Box. So I pre-ordered December one. What did I get? There were 7 products hiding inside the box:
- Ole Henriksen Pure Truth Youth Activating Oil 15ml
- Murad Essential-C Cleanser 45ml
- Elemis Papaya Enzyme Peel 15ml
- Lord&Berry Silk Kajal 2g
- Macadamia Healing Oil Infused Comb
- Bourjois Intense Smoky trio in Violet Constelle
- Gold Collagen 1x50ml bottle
First 4 I’m exited to try out, but last three are fail in my eyes. I love Bourjois as a brand, but their eyeshadows are just not good. Comb is a comb and nothing I would jump up and down about. If they included small sample size of any of the other Macadamia products, I would be excited. And I’m not even sure how to convey my amazement over food supplement which needs I believe 3 more doses to do it’s magic … or at least for you to judge if it does anything for you. Again – one tea bag and it would be cheaper for them and I would have loveed to try out new blend.
As I adore Ole Henriksen Truth Serum I started with their oil. So far I tested it on my hand and no irritations occurred. Next step – apply it after serum on dry patches. I’ll keep you updated how did that go and if I liked any of the other products.
Will I ordered another Beauty Box from Lookfantastic.com? Without seeing the content first? Not sure. It still costs around 20 EUR and it will really depend on my mood if I decide to get any of the 2015 ones. I won’t say that I’m dissapointed as I’m not. I’ll get to try out 4 products that look promising and if even one becomes regular, it was worth it.
What do you think? Was this good box or totally not for you?

I’ve already received 2 and ordered another one Memebox. They are exciting to try since they usually contain korean skincare brands. Greek boxes are usually very dissappointing. This is a nice one because you have some well-known skincare brands + make up but I think it’s kinda pricey for €20.
So Memebox is something worth checking out. I’m waiting to see what will they put into LF books to see if I want January one. :biggrin:
