When I first started blogging (almost three years ago now – eek!), beauty boxes were one of the most hyped things going. Pretty boxes that plopped through your door, delivering new brands to you every month, were really exciting and something to look forward to. However, for me anyway, the novelty of them started to wear thin pretty quickly. Loads of new beauty boxes started popping up everywhere, but they all followed the same formula of 2-3 full-sized products accompanied by several samples, and with the same brands appearing month after month, it all got a little dry. Yes my sample drawer filled up thanks to beauty boxes, but I didn’t really feel I benefited other than that after a while. And how many miniatures does one girl really need anyway?!
However, when I got an email recently from Look Incredible, my interest was definitely piqued. Ladies and gents, the beauty box has evolved! Gone are the sample sizes – here’s a box with five full-sized products each month, designed to last you the four weeks until your next load of goodies arrives. And these full-sized products aren’t all new brands you’ve never heard of; say hello to L’Oreal, Smashbox and Urban Decay just in this month’s box.
Products in April’s Look Incredible beauty box: L’Oreal Nutri-Gold Silk Day Cream (full size, RRP £8.99) | Spackle Multicare Eye Primer (full size, RRP £20)| Smashbox Blush Soft Light Duo (full size, RRP £15) | Velvet 59 ‘My Fair Lashes’ mascara (full size, RRP £19.99) | Urban Decay Super Saturated Lip Colour (full size, RRP £14)
I’m sure you’ll agree this is a really amazing selection of products, and with a combined RRP of almost £80 it’s well worth the £18.99 price tag. You can purchase the April box here, but another really nice touch is the opportunity to purchase individually the previous boxes’ products. With brands such as Bareminerals, NARS, Estee Lauder, OPI and Tarte all feauturing in older boxes, I’m SO intrigued to see what premium brands continue to pop up in future boxes. While £18.99 is slightly pricier than other boxes on the market, I genuinely think this is such amazing value for what you get.
Have any of you tried the Look Incredible beauty box, or would you like to? Let me know in the comments!
