LookFantastic October Beauty Box

After months and months (almost years!) of avoiding beauty boxes (the BritishBeautyBlogger Beauty Boxes excluded, because they have been fabulous) I seem to have purchased no fewer than three this month… I posted about my experience with YouBeauty's Discovery Box a couple of days ago and I still have an all natural box from LoveLula yet to arrive. However, today I'm going to share the October LookFantastic beauty box with you. LookFantastic launched their beauty box in September (which was a stunner) and having missed out on it I decided to give the October box a try.

This box features a nice array of products from some very nice brands. I'm already a big fan of KMS California, Balance Me and Korres and I'm very excited to try out products from Gatineau and This Works for the first time. I'm not as excited about the L'Oreal Professional haircare items but I will at least try the conditioning mask to see if I should keep it or pass it along to a friend.

The contents of the box:
Balance Me Facial Expression Filler (15ml)
Gatineau Collagene Expert Ultimate Smoothing Cream (15ml)
L'Oreal Profesional Pro Keratin Shampoo (100ml)
L'Oreal Professional Pro Keratin Conditioning Masque (75ml)
This Works Sleep Plus Pillow Spray (5ml)
KMS California Free Shape Quick Blow Dry Spray (75ml)
Korres Citrus Shower Gel (50ml)

I think that for £15 (including delivery) the product selection is very good. I like that there is a variety of skincare, haircare and body care products and that I will use everything or nearly everything in the box. My only gripe is that there are no make-up items included. I love trying out new make-up and beauty boxes are a particularly good way to discover new brands and products that you might otherwise never try. All in all, I'm very happy and I've actually pre-ordered November's box without any idea of the contents. I bought October's box knowing what was inside it so I've made a bit of a gamble. However, so far all of LookFantastic's beauty boxes have sold out incredibly quickly which means that if you're interested in trying their November beauty box then you too might want to consider pre-ordering (link here). 

What do you think about LookFantastic's October Beauty Box? 



  1. Dammit all, this box looks awesome' kicking myself for missing it, but I've never bought a beauty box cus I thought I'd always be disappointed and hate not knowing what I'll get!

  2. I wouldn't have been too bothered about the balance Me and Gatineau goodies, but I love the rest of the selection. Really want to try a Korres shower gel at some point xx
