The Look Fantastic Birthday Beauty Box (September 2015)


Look Fantastic Beauty Box September 2015

This month marks the first birthday of Look Fantastic's #LFBeautyBox and to celebrate they've released a bumper edition of their usual monthly beauty box. And when I say bumper edition what I really mean is, have you ever seen this many beauty samples in one beauty box and for £15 at that? And that's not even taking into consideration the bonus discount vouchers which I will go on to discuss further down.

Out of all the beauty boxes that I've had the pleasure of putting to the test over the past year or so on Ellis Tuesday, Look Fantastic's really has been my favourite. I think the fact that you're not tied into a subscription has a lot to do with it as well as the fantastic variety of products that appear in their boxes. And as you can see, Look Fantastic have certainly not disappointed when it comes to their celebratory first birthday box.

Unlike other beauty boxes, including past #LFBeautyBoxes, there isn't one or several full size products but instead there are a whole host of sample sized products from some pretty impressive brands. The first product that instantly caught my eye was the Bliss Fabulous Foaming Face Wash. Bliss are a brand that I have wanted to dabble with for a while now and after trying this face wash, I definitely need to try out some more from the Bliss brand soon. Then I turned my attention to the Caudalie Vinosource duo. Caudalie are a brand that I have only ever tried through them appearing in beauty boxes but they are always make a welcome appearance for me. The Moisturizing Sorbet in particular feels absolutely wonderful on the skin and has improved a little dry patch that I had on my forehead which appeared just before I started using the Sorbet. It's also great that both a moisturising product and a serum have been included in the same box.

Sebastian were another brand that I was incredibly happy to see included in this month's Look Fantastic Beauty Box. I'm actually going to try and keep these to be used the next time I'm travelling so expect a full review of them when I do try them out. I've not yet put the MONU Tanworx Tan Maintainer to the test either, mainly because I don't have a tan to maintain but knowing that it is from MONU, a brand that I've always been pleasantly surprised with, makes me think that it will be equally as good. 

Then there are two brands and products which I hadn't heard a great deal about before seeing them appear in this month's box. Phyto's Phytokeratine Extreme is a leave-in conditioning product of sorts. It claims to protect hair against breakage, split ends, humidity and heat, which makes it a product that I'm certainly excited to try out. And last but not least Codage Paris' Scrubbing Cream. This is without a doubt the priciest of the products included in the September box with this 25ml tube retailing at £18. It's incredibly rich and suitable for a variety of skin types, including those of us with sensitive skin which is always a welcome sign in regards to facial exfoliants.

In addition to all of the great beauty samples in this box there are also £50 worth of vouchers for retailers including ghd, All Sole, MyProtein, MyBag and Coggles. What a great bonus, especially when you consider the fact that this entire box is only £15 to purchase. You also get an exclusive sneak peek of the Look Fantastic Advent Calendar and this has definitely got me very, very excited about all things Christmas related. Who else is already thinking about starting their Christmas shopping, opening Advent Calendar doors and watching Home Alone and Love Actually?

So what do you think of the Birthday #LFBeautyBox? Have you tried any of the products included in the September box? And which beauty box is your favourite out of the several that are on the market?

  1. I love receiving Caudalie samples in beauty boxes. Their products always impress me, I just wish they came with smaller price tags.

  7. I'd really love to try this box, for a while I would use the My Little Box but it kind of lost its charm. I might try this box :)

    1. What I do really love about the #LFBeautyBox is the fact that you're not tied into a subscription and can pick and choose which ones to go for Lissy! :)
