Lookfantastic Beauty Box - August 2017


When the August Lookfantastic beauty box landed at my door, I wondered if it was enough to redeem itself and make me remain a subscriber once my annual subscription lapses next month. Upon opening it, however, the answer was a resolute "no". The quality of the LF beauty box has slowly (but surely) gone downhill over the past year, and I've been finding myself less and less enthusiastic about receiving each box.

The Pip Box - July 2017


The Pip Box is a relatively new beauty box, launched in February this year if I remember correctly. Their main selling point is offering natural, cruelty-free products, and 50p from every box sold is donated to an animal friendly charity.

Powder Beauty Drawer Subscription - July 2017


The second month of my Powder Beauty Drawer monthly box landed at my door today, and fortunately, it's much better than the major disappointment that was the Lookfantastic July beauty box.

Lookfantastic Beauty Box - July 2017


The July 2017 Lookfantastic Beauty Box landed on my doorstep this afternoon and I have to say that I'm not thrilled at all by its contents (I would not recommend this month's box), and I will explain why. Also, just because it's summer right now, it doesn't mean that everyone wants tanning/bronzing products. There are perhaps a couple of items that I don't mind, but if I didn't have an annual subscription and I saw what's included this month, I wouldn't have touched this box with a bargepole.

Powder Beauty Drawer Subscription - June 2017


Just as I thought that no monthly beauty box could match up to the Lookfantastic beauty box, Powder goes ahead and released a subscription beauty box! Not including the postage cost of £3.50, the monthly price of the Powder beauty box is £15 per month, or £13.50/month for 6 months, or £10 per month for a 12 month subscription (still paid monthly).
