I have tried so many beauty monthly subscription boxes! I feel like I have spent years trying to find one that I really enjoy. In my experience, a lot of them start off quite good, but gradually decline in quality as the months go by. Some of them only include 1-2 full sized products and the rest of the box consists of sachets or tiny samples. I have also found that some beauty boxes include mainly skincare, haircare or general items that I may not put to use, and found it difficult to find a true beauty box that regularly included makeup items in every box. Today I'm chatting about an awesome monthly beauty box that I have found. I have paid for these boxes myself and this post is not sponsored in any way! I just wanted to share an awesome find with you all in case you are interested! Make sure you keep reading to find out the details.
|Don't worry - no spoilers! These are the contents from November | December | January and February LF Beauty Boxes|
The monthly beauty box that I am talking with you all about today is the Look Fantastic Beauty Box which is a monthly subscription box. I will later explain how exactly you subscribe to this box and how it works but first I thought I would take you through my contents over the past 4 months. Everyone knows with subscription boxes, some months are good and then at times, some months can be terrible and make you feel super disappointed with items you don't want or cannot use. This is why I wanted to show you the last four months of Look Fantastic Beauty Boxes so you can see how consistently good they are and how much you get for your money. Personally, I feel this is the best beauty box I have ever subscribed to and I am happy to pay for it each month since I am always left impressed! I have categorized each item so you can see how many of each you get: skincare, makeup, body and lifestyle.

Each monthly box comes with an awesome little information booklet that explains what each product is in your box, how much it retails for and how to use it. Every now and then you may get a variation of an item in your box, so they do vary slightly but the book shows both products. All products are available on the LF website, however many of them are deluxe samples and not full-size. I personally find the sizes very generous and I love the booklets as they include tips and tricks for how to use each product. They generally also include interesting beauty articles which relate to the monthly theme. Anything from recipes, health advice articles or interviews with celebs. They are great little booklets.
Each box also includes a mini Elle magazine! I love this feature as these magazines are generally pretty expensive but it gives me a little extra surprise each month!

Overall, I am super obsessed with this beauty box, and I love that shipping is free, even to Australia! I have found shipping to be quite fast and I usually get my box around the second week of each month which is perfect for me. Shipping has been very consistent and reliable. The monthly subscription box ends up being $22.66 AUD which is super affordable in my opinion and comparable to other australian monthly subscription services. If you pay for longer subscriptions, the price per box is reduced as well. I am thinking of getting a six month subscription now that I have been consistently impressed for the past four months. As I am currently on a makeup spending ban, these boxes have definitely helped me to feel excited again about testing out new products. I would highly recommend you all check out the Look Fantastic Beauty Box Subscription!
