Look Fantastic

Finding the right beauty product is not an easy thing to do. Visiting a high-street shop will present you with dozens and dozens of options for something as simple as eyeliner, let alone thinking about when it comes to the more specific items that might be on your shopping list. It’s a complicated business and not everyone has got the time to indulge in looking around for the latest and greatest things in the world of beauty.

That’s where the Look Fantastic subscription box comes in. It takes the stress out of finding beauty products, not only selecting the best that there is on offer but also sending it straight to your door for a nice and simple way of getting the nicest things in your collection. Whether you’re a catwalk model or someone with little more than a passing interest in the beauty industry, this box will teach you all about new companies on the market as well as classics that have been around for years.

How Does It Work?

Subscription services have a quite specific way of working. You sign up to a company’s service for a given length of time and you pay them a set amount of money. This can be paid in advance but more often than not is actually paid on a regular basis. In exchange for your money you receive goods or services. In the case of Look Fantastic, those goods are a box filled with beauty products straight to your door.

What Do You Get?

You get beauty products on a regular basis, that’s what you get. The key thing to bear in mind here is that we’re not talking about the sort of thing you can pick up down at the local pound shop. Look Fantastic guarantees that each and every box they send out is filled with more than £50 worth of stuff. Not a bad deal at all, when you think about it.

It’s not just any old stuff that you’re sent out, either. All of the products have been carefully selected by the Look Fantastic beauty team – a selection of experts that know what they’re talking about when it comes to beauty products. Whether it be a classic brand that you’ve heard the name of all of your life or a brand new company that is trying to make a name for itself, the stuff you’re sent will be of the highest quality.

As you’d expect from a company trying to get you interested in buying products, the majority of things you’re sent through will be ‘tasters’ rather than the full-sized thing. That’s not necessarily bad, though, as it allows you to try things out without being committed to them. You can then buy the larger version of the things that you like the most. From things to keep your hair and skin looking amazing through to lipsticks and make-up, you’ll get loads of interesting stuff with Look Fantastic’s beauty box.

Options

The only real option when it comes to the Look Fantastic subscription box is how long you’d like to sign up for. You can opt for a one-month rolling contract, a three-month offer, a six-month subscription or a twelve-month one.

Examples

Boxes tend to have themes, so the products within them will be linked in some way or other. In the Hello Beautiful edition, Look Fantastic sent out a Vichy Liftactiv Supreme Face Cream for dry skin, a neon wet brush, Decléor’s Intense Nutrition Comforting Cocoon Day Cream, Eve Lom’s Cleanser, Uniq One’s all-in-one hair treatment.

In the Jet Setter edition there were teeth whitening strips from Mr. Blanc, self-tanning oil by Tanorganic, eye cream from Caudalie Premier Cru, basil and lemon shower gel by Korres, moisturising lotion by Cowshed, and bergamot pear shower gel, also by Korres.

The Summer Lovin’ edition had a brow pencil by Benefit, 50ml silk cream by Kebelo, 40ml camera close-up by This Works In Transit, Ballápierre cosmetics’ cheek and lip stain, MiTi’s professional hair ties, and Nuxe Huile Prodigieuse OR’s golden shimmer multi usage dry oil. Look Fantastic also do special things like send out ELLE magazine or vouchers for money off specials.

Prices

If you subscribe on a one-month rolling contract then it will cost you £15 per month, whilst a 3 month contract will set you back £40, saving you a fiver. You’ll save £15 if you sign up for six months as that will cost you £75, and you save a massive £45 if you opt for the twelve month plan at £135 for the year.
