Latest In Beauty Build Your Own Box

​It has been quite a while since I placed an order with Latest In Beauty, in fact they have had a big revamp since my last box with a new website, a larger selection in the Build Your Own Box section and also monthly subscription options.

I had resisted placing an order for quite some time but when I saw the latest Build Your Own Box products a number of them caught my eye so I decided to take the plunge. I opted for the £18 ‘Beauty Guru’ box which allows you to choose 9 items. This works out at only £2 per item, which considering there are a number of full sized products to select from means it’s great value.

The November box is no exception. Curated along with Tatler magazine it features a gorgeous design and of course a great array of beauty products, guaranteed to get you party ready!

Lookfantastic Beauty Box – January 2016 Edition

image

Welcome to the January ‘Detox’ edition of the Lookfantastic Beauty Box which landed just this morning. This month’s box promises to banish those Winter skincare woes, bring some shine to lacklustre hair, and give dull complexions a boost of colour.

I’d already seen a sneak peek of this month’s box and was a little bit non-plussed; as a long-time subscriber I recognised 3 of the 6 items from previous boxes, which for a company offering so many products as Lookfantastic is a little bit disappointing. If you’re a new subscriber however it is a good line-up, which I’ll run through now.

Lookfantastic Beauty Box October 2015 Edition

The Lookfantastic Beauty Box reached a milestone last month when it celebrated its first Birthday with a very special box. Such was the value and quality of the box could be forgiven for wondering if this month would disappoint and, just like helium balloons deflate after a party, whether the October box would be an anticlimax. Well, I’ve got my sticky mitts on the October Lookfantastic box and can reveal it’s contents and whether the box is a hit or a miss.

Lookfantastic Beauty Box July 2015 Edition

The first of my beauty boxes this month has arrived. Lookfantastic are always quick off the mark with their boxes, saving subscribers that agonising wait, and as always beneath the sleek black box is a fabulous array of products selected from brands available on Lookfantastic’s website.

This month’s line-up features quite a few familiar brands, which have featured in boxes before, but two of the brands are new to the Lookfantastic Beauty Box and one of them is actually a product I’ve been eyeing up recently so I was very pleased to see it. So join me as I reveal the contents of July’s box.

Lookfantastic Beauty Box June 2015 Edition

My first beauty box of the month has just landed!

image

The LookFantastic Beauty Box is a subscription box that was unveiled with a bang only last year and quickly became a firm favourite of mine; each month featuring six products from a variety of beauty brands for just £15. This month’s line-up includes Nuxe, Murad, Caudalie, Ren, Label.m and Balance Me and barring two products is definitely skincare focused. Whilst the selection is solid enough, it lacks the wow factor of their previous boxes, for reasons that will become clear as you read on.
