SPOILER ALERT! The 2019 Look Fantastic Beauty Advent Calendar unboxed! Find out what little luxury beauty product was behind each door and see how it lives up to last year’s INCREDIBLE Advent Calendar!
Ok guys, I know this one is a little early this year but these Advent Calendars are selling like hot cakes so if you need a little sneak peek inside the Look Fantastic Advent Calendar before you make your choice – here it is.
I’ve unboxed the full calendar (and re-boxed it of course to give me something to open in December!) so keep scrolling to see exactly what’s inside and how much each product is worth!
1. Morphe 9A Palette – Blend The Rules
First up is a 9-pan eyeshadow palette from Morphe (one of my fave eyeshadow brands!). The perfect mix of shimmers and mattes for the autumn winter seasons to create a beaut warm smoky look… or just keep it simple using a single neutral shade.
Morphe eyeshadows are always amazing – they’re super pigmented and long lasting plus they blend effortlessly!
2. Living Proof Perfect Hair Day 5-in-1 Styling Treatment
The Christmas party season will soon be upon us and that usually means extra styling for the hair. This 5-in-1 Styling Treatment by Living Proof can help protect your locks from the heat whilst also adding bounce, smoothing, volumising and conditioning your hair.
It’s super simple to use – after washing, apply the treatment to damp hair and comb through. Use the hairdryer to seal in the treatment and get the finished look.
3. Caudalie Vinopure Clear Skin Purifying Toner
I love a good Caudalie product so I’m happy this is in box number 3! Use this like you would any other toner, on clean skin, morning and evening. It contains salicylic acid and grape polyphenols plus organic essential oils which work to remove impurities from the skin.
This toner is great for combination skin and it’s the perfect size for an overnight bag.
4. Luxie Brushes – 121 & 141
I actually discovered Luxie brushes from Look Fantastic – I hadn’t heard of them anywhere else but I’m SO glad I found them. The Luxie brushes always have the softest bristles which makes applying makeup really easy and creates that flawless finish everyone wants.
The two brushes in the Advent Calendar are the 121 Mini Tapered and 141 Mini Round. The mini round is perfect for adding that shimmer in the corner of the eye or packing on bolder colours in the centre. The Mini Tapered is perfect for blending eyeshadows.
5. Elemis Pro Collagen Marine Cream
Oh my goodness… I was so shocked when I found this next product in my calendar… and it’s full size! The Elemis Pro Collagen Marine Cream is a luxury face cream which has been clinically proven to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles whilst increasing moisture levels in the skin.
This is a must have product in winter to protect your skin from the cold and keep it looking healthy and hydrated!
6. Illamasqua Nude Collection Lip Liner – Raw
Illamasqua is making an appearance in the Advent Calendar again this year and I’m here for it! This is a full size lip liner from the Nude Collection in shade Raw – a rusty nude shade, great for those wanting a more natural lip shade but with a bit more warmth at this time of year.
The Illamasqua Lip Liner is super blendable and almost feels creamy on the lips, giving the perfect finish.
7. Rituals The Ritual Of Ayurveda Dry Oil
Next up is a product from Rituals and it’s their Rituals of Avurveda Dry Oil. Not only can you apply it to the skin for a hydrated glowy finish but also the hair! It’s a 2-in-1!
The Rituals Dry Oil is infused with Indian rose and sweet almond oil – the perfect combination to relax and energise the body and mind this winter.
8. Philip Kingsley Elasticizer
Another hair product now but this time it’s the Elasticizer Deep Conditioning Treatment from Philip Kingsley. If your hair get’s a little frizzy in these colder months, or as a result of colour or over use of heat then this is for you!
Apply the Elasticizer to damp hair before shampooing and leave on for around 20 minutes – wash and condition as normal after this and enjoy your incredible silky smooth hair.
The Philip Kingsley Elasticizer Deep Conditioning Treatment is worth £8.50 and can be found here.
9. Oskia Renaissance Cleansing Gel
The Oskia Renaissance Cleansing Gel is the perfect cleanser for every skin type! It’s non-foaming (and therefore non-drying) and leaves the skin soft and supple. Use directly on the skin, or even use it to remove makeup. The gel formula is also packed with bio-available vitamins and fruit enzymes – exactly what your skin likes.
10. First Aid Beauty Facial Radiance Pads
First Aid Beauty is a brand you might not have heard much about but is one that you’ll be glad you discovered. I discovered this in the Look Fantastic Advent Calendar 2017 when I received their Ultra Repair Cream. I’ve since bought that cream several times… it’s amazing!
In this years calendar you’ll find the First Aid Beauty Facial Radiance Pads and I already know I’m going to love them.
This tub contains 28 pads which you can use to gently exfoliate your face. They’re infused with lactic and glycolic acid which work to improve clarity and reveal a natural radiance.
After cleansing, use morning and evening.
11. Avant Moisture Surge Overnight Treatment
Avant is one of my fave skincare brands and this is a product I haven’t’ tried before but I’m super excited to! The Moisture Surge Overnight Treatment is applied to the skin overnight (clue in the name) and the anti-oxidant rich formula works its magic whilst you sleep, leaving you with a refreshed, hydrated complexion in the morning. You only need to use this 2-3 times a week for the desired results!
12. Prai Throat & Decolletage Creme
Prai is a brand I haven’t heard of before so I am a total newbie to this product.
This is the Prai Throat and Decolletage Creme and it’s designed with more mature skin in mind (although you’re never too young to be looking after the decolletage right!). The throat area is always an area which doesn’t get as much attention as it should when it comes to skincare but it’s just as important to keep this area hydrated as it is the rest of the face.
This cream is enriched with hyaluronic acid and works to moisturise, firm and leave the decolletage looking youthful.
13. Lord & Berry Eyeliner
Can anyone ever have too many eyeliners? I know I can’t (I’m forever losing them!)…
This Eyeliner from Lord and Berry is the perfect black for giving eyes the definition you want this party season. It’s super soft and blendable so it’s perfect for creating that smoky effect but it sharpens well enough to be able to use on the top lash line to create a classic ‘flick’.
14. Mellow Cosmetics Liquid Lip Paint – Tehran
Another brand I haven’t heard of before and a product I’m SO glad I’ve discovered. This is the liquid lip paint from Mellow Cosmetics in shade Tehran. It’s the perfect deep nude shade (which will go so well with the Illamasqua lip liner in day 6) and it gives the perfect matte finish! The creamy formula is super easy to apply and lasts all day without drying out the lips.
15. Rodial Dragon’s Blood Lip Mask
Time for a little TLC for the lips now with this Dragon’s Blood Lip Mask by Rodial. The lip mask is a bio-cellulose mask which delivers intense hydration with Hyaluronic acid to smooth and soften your lips. This is perfect for lips which need a little TLC in the colder months!
16. Molton Brown Fiery Pink Pepper Bath & Shower Gel
Who doesn’t love a Molton Brown product at Christmas hey? I’m forever discovering the new scents Molton Brown release and I LOVE the smell of this bath and shower gel.
The refreshing pink shower gel is packed with anti-oxidants and has hints of Fiery Pink Pepper (hence the name), Tangerine, Elemi Oil and Ginger. Top tip – apply with a shower scrunchy to make a little go a long way!
17. Emma Hardie Moisture Boost Vit + C Cream
Emma Hardie is back in the Look Fantastic Advent Calendar this year with a Moisture Boost Vitamin + C Cream. Apply morning and evening to freshly cleansed skin to moisturise and freshen the face. It contains a blend of vitamin B3 and vitamin C to give the complexion a youthful glow.
18. Neal’s Yard Remedies Wild Rose Hand Cream
Don’t forget about your hands this winter with this Neal’s Yard Remedies Wild Rose Hand Cream. This rosy scented moisturiser hydrates and protects the hands from the cold weather and nourishes dry skin. The hand cream contains a blend of Wild Rosehip, Geranium and Patchouli oils so your hands are gonna be smelling fresh!
19. BioEffect EGF Serum
The BioEffect EGF Serum featured in the August Beauty Box and it’s such an incredible product it’s made it’s way into the Advent Calendar too! The BioEffect EGF serum uses a plant based replica of EGF and works to reduce fine lines and wrinkles. All you need is 2-4 drops to apply to clean dry skin and it covers the whole face and neck.
The full size bottle of this retails at £125 – it’s such an amazing product! This size is worth £41.60 and can be found here.
20. Eyeko Lash Alert Mascara
I never understood why Eyeko sometimes created mascaras in tubes… but I’ve finally found out that it’s a zero-waste tube… which means that when you think you’re getting to the end of your mascara, you can squeeze the tube and get almost every last bit instead of throwing out those hard to reach bits! This Eyeko Lash Alert Mascara has zero smudging, crumbling or flaking and the formula ensures your lashes are volumised and healthy! Win-win!
21. Delilah Cosmetics Brow Groom Eye Brow Pencil
Equipped with both a brow pencil and a spoolie, this is everything you need for your eyebrows in one product. The Delilah Cosmetics Brow Groom Eyebrow Pencil has a twist-up brow crayon at one end and the spoolie at the other. The pencil is super fine but also creamy so it’s really easy to fill in any gaps and create the perfect brow arch.
22. Bubble T Limited Edition Bath Bombs
Created just for the Look Fantastic Advent Calendar 2019, Bubble T have brought us 3 miniature ‘salted caramel’ bath bombs which smell incredible! Simply drop them into your bath (just one or all 3) and let their colour and scent explode.
This is a limited edition product which is only available in the advent calendar. Similar products can be found here.
23. Filorga Meso-Mask
Filorga have created this wonder mask (a.k.a. The Meso-Mask) which improves the appearance of your skin, reducing wrinkles and adding glow. Apply the Meso-Mask to clean skin (quite generously) and leave for 15-30 minutes before wiping off with a warm damp cloth.

25. Omorovicza Queen of Hungary Mist Limited Edition
And finally, the product we have all been waiting to reveal…. Christmas Day treats us with a limited edition Queen of Hungary Spray by Omorovicza. Firstly… how gorgeous and glam does the limited edition rose gold bottle look?! Unreal.
This Limited Edition mist is infused with a nourishing blend of rose, sage and orange blossom waters which work to hydrate and refresh the skin. You can either use this as a post cleanse toner or just as a revitalising mist when you feel your skin needs a little pick me up.
