Beauty Product Discovery – Look Fantastic Beauty Box January 2019 – Unboxing and Product Reviews

New Year, new lot of beauty boxes! I was very excited to open the January Look Fantastic box as they’ve been advertising, since last year, that it will contain 5 out of 6 full size products and they also said that they are bringing even more improvements to the beauty box this year. Sadly, the hype didn’t pay off for me and the first Look Fantastic box of 2019 felt disappointing. I really hope that’s not the theme for theRead more

Battle of the Beauty Boxes – Conclusions from the 2018 Unboxing and Reviews on Birchbox, Glossybox, Look Fantastic and Cohorted

What a year for beauty boxes has it been! This year I’ve subscribed and tried the most beauty boxes I’ve ever have before but also unsubscribed from a lot too. I’ve tried Sophie’s Normal and Luxury beauty boxes which were nice but still at their infancy. I’ve tried the Pink Parcel and even though I didn’t write about it, I thought it was more worth the cash than Birchbox . I’ve also tried the MLB Box (aka My Little BeautyRead more

Beauty Product Discovery – Cohorted Beauty Box December 2018 – Unboxing and Product Reviews

Last beauty box for the year and sadly, it was a very disappointing one. The Cohorted box was as always the standard black, square box that closes magnetically and ties with a ribbon. The box also came with its monthly, small beauty magazine (about 30 pages) that tells you a little bit more about each product and some featured products or artists. Cohorted doesn’t really do themes but you can sort of guess one from the editorial intro of theRead more

Beauty Product Discovery – Look Fantastic Beauty Box December 2018 – Unboxing and Product Reviews

I was really looking forward to the December beauty boxes as I was imagining really festive, colourful makeup appropriate for the season. Whether you celebrate Christmas or not, it’s still nice to have one beauty box a year were colours, glitter, bath bombs and eyeshadows dominate. Sadly, while the box design was very festive indeed, the contents of the box were not. However, I actually thought that the products contained were really nice and would have made an excellent boxRead more

Beauty Product Discovery – Look Fantastic Beauty Box November 2018 – Unboxing and Product Reviews

Look Fantastic went for a “Dark Wonder” theme this month and it came with a gorgeous dark blue, burgundy and gold colour box. The Look Fantastic boxes are always beautiful and sturdy, no matter of the theme, but this month the theme works really well for November and for the box design itself. Love it! The products contained are meant to leave you dazzling in the moonlight and while some of the literally will do just that, others are aRead more

Beauty Product Discovery – Birchbox Beauty Box October 2018 – Unboxing and Product Reviews

One more month, one more Birchbox although this one is my last. After a year and a half of being a subscriber to Birchbox and also to other beauty boxes, I have come to the conclusion that Birchbox is the least value for money and the least exciting beauty box to receive. For all the details and further explanations check out: Coffee Chat: Goodbye Birchbox – Why I unsubscribed from the Birchbox beauty box after a year and a half I’veRead more

Beauty Product Discovery – Glossybox October 2018 – Unboxing and Product Reviews

Glossybox came in two versions this month, the Treat or Trick box, to celebrate Halloween and I love it! Whether you actually celebrate Halloween or not, it doesn’t really matter. It’s a nice and different theme and a good excuse for lovely makeup and some artistic creations! I received the Trick box and it’s actually the one I’d pick if I had a choice. The difference between the two was subtle but noticeable. Both boxes had a very similar vampireRead more
