look fantastic beauty box monthly review, latest in beauty build your own box review

It’s time for my 12th and final New Beauty Additions post of the year. It’s been an incredible year of trying out beauty subscriptions, being introduced to a whole host of different brands and falling in love with new products. So for the final time this year, here are the lovely things you can get as part of two of the monthly beauty subscription plans on the market.

Look Fantastic Beauty Box - Beauty In Wonderland* | from £13 p/m

look fantastic beauty box, lfbeautybox, look fantastic beauty in wonderland review,

To end the year, Look Fantastic have outdone themselves yet again. Not only do you get your usual selection of 6 beauty goodies and a complimentary copy of Elle magazine all wrapped up in a beautiful, reusable box, this month you also get a £5 off voucher to use towards your next purchase at Look Fantastic. And speaking of beautiful box, this month’s box has the most wonderful wonderland artwork hidden inside the lid. You can be sure that I'll be using it for future pictures to come ;)

On to the products inside. Firstly there’s an exclusive Bubble T Blueberry Tea Bath Fizzer that’s been formulated specifically for this box. It smells amazing and I can’t wait to use it on my next pamper night. I’m also excited to see a generous 20ml deluxe sample of a new moisturiser to try - Figs & Rouge Hydra Activ Smart Nutrient Day Cream. The one I’m most curious to try is Suki Exfoliate Foaming Cleanser which looks like a traditional sugar scrub so I’m not sure where the foaming part comes from. Anyone who’s been reading for a while will know that hand creams are an important part of my life so I’m happy that Polaar Hand Cream is part of the mix. Finally we have a sample of Gatineau Melatogenine Serum and MDM Flow lipstick in the shade Bossy, which looks like a cool, grey toned shade that I probably won’t be able to pull off although it is said to suit all skin tones.

You have to be fast with this box if you do want it as they tend to sell-out.

Latest In Beauty Build Your Own Box | from £9 p/m

latest in beauty monthly beauty subscription, best beauty subscription, latest in beauty review

Although this is my personal favourite beauty subscription, I will be cancelling mine at the end of this month. It has absolutely nothing to do with the service, the products on offer or anything on their part but rather it’s me. I can’t seem to cope with the amount of products I have in my collection and I’m still cheekily finding ways of adding more than I need to the pile. So even though I’ve discovered some wonderful things thanks to this, and gotten some absolute bargains, I will be saying goodbye to this subscription. I’ll probably place an extra order here and there when they get in something truly incredible. But enough with all that, let’s talk about what I chose this month...

I actually got a few things for others what with it being the season of giving and all ;) I thought my sister would enjoy the Avene Purete Thermale 3-in-1 Cleanser to try out and also the Sukin Detoxifying Clay Masque. I also have someone in mind for The Body Shop Rose Body Butter who loves the scent of roses a lot more than I ever will. For myself I got another bottle of Simple Micellar Cleansing Water because I get through these so quickly so never hurts to have a back-up. I also chose two old favourites from the selection - Moroccan Oil Treatment Light for myself and the Malin & Goetz Vitamin E Moisuriser for my husband. I was excited to see some more Institut Esthederm on offer and this time it’s a face spray which I'm sure I'll enjoy as its such a bargain. Two more new products for me to try out are the Egyptian Magic Cream which I've heard so much about but never actually tried and 417 Aromatic Body Moisturiser which is a brand I've never heard of but I'm already loving the generous size of the product.

I will definitely miss selecting my own mammoth selection of goodies each month. But maybe one day when I can get my collection of products under control I’ll be able to re-sub to this.

Have you ever cancelled a subscription that you love just because it got too overwhelming? Did you ever re-subscribe? I'd love to know...
