Look Fantastic Beauty Calendar | Week 1

Look Fantastic Beauty Calendar | Week 1

I’m so excited to finally reveal the Look Fantastic Beauty Calendar! Have a look at what I received in week 1 and what my thoughts are so far…Look Fantastic Beauty Calendar | Week 1

Around October time I made the decision to purchase this beauty advent calendar. I’d searched around and this really stood out to me. For £70 this includes over £300 worth of products and after hearing so many good reviews last year – I couldn’t resist.

The Look Fantastic calendar is huge! It opens like a book and its got gorgeous cream and rose gold packaging – yep very blogger worthy. So every week I’ve decided to run through what I’ve received and what I think so far.

I’ve done this every year, last year I had the Marks and Spencers advent calendar (here) and the year before I had the Benefit calendar (here).

So what did I receive from day 1 to day 7…

Look Fantastic Beauty Calendar | Week 1
  • Day 1: Pixi Glow Tonic Exfoliating Toner – a cult classic with bloggers
  • Day 2: Rituals Sakura Magic Touch Body Cream – this smells a dream
  • Day 3: Inika Loose Mineral Blush in Blooming Nude – a pretty natural tan shade
  • Day 4: This Works Sleep Plus Pillow Spray – Scent made for dreams.. Literally
  • Day 5: Moroccan Oil Hair Treatment – Another cult favourite
  • Day 6: Monu Illuminating Primer – Excited to try this!
  • Day 7: NudeStix Lip + Cheek Pencil in Whisper – A gorgeous pinky nude

So that’s the first week of products, as you can see so far there’s a mixture of skincare, haircare and a couple of makeup items.

So far, I’m a bit unsure at the moment to be honest. I wouldn’t say I’m underwhelmed but I’m not overly impressed either. It seems just deluxe samples to be honest and some of these products I’ve never even heard of .I mean Glow Tonic is good but its soo tiny and the other two products I’m excited to try is Rituals and Sleep Plus.

Beauty calendars like this is a good opportunity to try new brands before buying the whole thing so I think it is good what they did here, so fingers crossed I’ll like them all once I start using them.

I’m still excited to see the rest of this calendar and I’m hoping a lot more makeup items appear than skincare and haircare! Make sure you check back next Wednesday for week 2!

Have you got this calendar? What products would you like out of this?

      I haven’t tried it yet but I struggled to get some out so it probably was for me too 😞xx

      Mine was half empty too. Day 7 was empty. As in, the NudeStix was not there. Thrilled with this thing, I’m telling you.

        Omg that’s so bad!! It’s not looking good so far is it 🙈

        Yes, I’ve contacted them and they got back to me rather quickly, offering me a 5 quid discount on my next order. Just because it’s Friday and I can spare a bit of energy, i replied saying that I didn’t feel like forcing me to spend more money was an appropriate compensation and that what i wanted was just the NudeStix. I don’t really have any faith, but the thing really is that the calendar is now a bit spoilt for me (and yet, this is the very definition of first world problem).

          How is a £5 discount gonna change the fact you’ve paid all this money to not have an item – that’s so bad of them! Haha your right it is! Overall I’m not hugely impressed by this calendar yet 😞

    Well, so they replied again saying that they will ship me the NudeStix 🙂
