About

The Lookfantastic Rose Collection 2019 Limited Edition Beauty Box contains 7 different luxury skin, body, and haircare products, with a total advertised value of over £153 (~$203.69). Lookfantastic assembled this box to celebrate Valentine’s Day and to allow you to try out some of its best-selling, high-dollar products.

The box is dedicated to roses, both in honor of the holiday and because rose is an amazing ingredient for skin care.

This box is not included in the standard Lookfantastic Beauty Box subscription. Subscribers must order and pay separately for this box, and non-subscribers are also welcome to purchase it.

Packaging

Lookfantastic has created another beautiful limited edition box, just like the Chinese New Year 2019 Limited Edition Beauty Box. It is a sturdy pink box in the shape of a heart, and it is even adorned with a large pink bow. It feels very luxe and is definitely gift-worthy. And it’s HUGE!

My kids have adopted this box as one of their playthings, and they are currently delighting in bringing their toys as “gifts” to me in the box. Double joy!

The Haul

As with all limited edition LF Beauty Boxes, the contents of this Rose Collection were not a surprise. As promised, it contained 8 luxury beauty items — score!

It also contained a pretty two-sided informational sheet. After last month’s debacle with the Chinese-only product summary, it was nice to get a breakdown that I could actually read!

About

This cruelty-free, paraben-free, alcohol-free toner nourishes and calms the skin with rose and elderflower. It is sensitive skin-friendly and promises to reduce redness and balance the pH of the skin.

About

This weekly high-performance exfoliator is suitable for all skin types and is part of the Advanced Skincare range from Elemis.

Elemis is a cruelty-free UK luxury skincare and spa brand that makes its products in England. Its products are pioneering and clinically trialed

My Thoughts

I love that this exfoliator is both ultra-gentle and environmentally friendly. It doesn’t use plastic micro-beads, and the jojoba beads polish rather than scratch the skin.

The aroma is spa-like and rich with roses. And as promised, the product is extremely gentle and comfortable to use. But that doesn’t detract from the exfoliating punch: my face felt smoother than it ever has after exfoliating just once. Love this!

About

This gentle probiotic cleanser comes with a large bamboo muslin cloth, and it is to be rubbed onto a dry face and then wiped off with this cloth and a bit of water. It contains a myriad of botanical ingredients that nourish, revitalize, firm, and nurture the skin. The essential oil blend provides a soothing aroma that turns the act of washing your face into a soothing ritual.

My Thoughts

At first, I wasn’t sure that I would love a cleanser that is designed to be wiped off, because splashing water on my face feels like a key element in the cleaning process. But how wrong I was! It was actually very soothing to use the incredibly soft muslin cloth after washing with this cleanser. It was like an extra little dose of self-care. Double win!

About

It is a gel cream that is designed to calm and soothe even the most sensitive skin, and it provides long-term hydration without clogging pores. In small-scale clinical trials, 77% of participants said that their skin was less prone to redness from dryness after using this moisturizer.

The star ingredient is antioxidant-rich organic grape water, and French skincare brand Caudalie’s founder has this to say about it:

Every spring, the vine saturates its grapes with plant water rich in moisturizing polysaccharides, trace elements and vitamins.

Caudalie was founded by a husband and wife team in 1995, and the brand focuses on natural and environmentally formulations that are backed by the best science.

My Thoughts

I have received smaller samples of this moisturizer in beauty bags before and loved it, so I was excited to get a larger size in this box.

My cheeks feels baby smooth after applying this moisturizer, and my T-zone is not at all sticky or oily. In fact, it feels just as smooth and supple, which is quite impressive because my face has all ecosystems in one. I can definitely see myself purchasing more of this moisturizer.

Ingredients

This moisturizer contains grape water, grape seed extract, grape juice, shea butter extract, soybean sterols, and chamomile flower extract.
