Beauty subscription boxes have become so popular over the past couple of years – I mean they’re such an amazing idea – if you haven’t tried one then you need to!
The boxes usually contain a handful of beauty, skincare and haircare products – often travel sized items but sometimes full sized – and they’re the perfect opportunity to try products out before you buy the full sized versions.
Beauty subscription boxes usually have a good mix of brands you’ve not heard of before as well as well known faves.
Look Fantastic are well known for their monthly subscription box – the boxes are always themed and contain six products in each box. The value of the box is always over £50 but the subscription only costs £15 a month (before any discounts) so price wise it’s an absolute bargain!
Check out what was in the October and November Look Fantastic Beauty Boxes!
Look Fantastic have recently brought out a new version of these boxes called ‘Discovery Bags’ – luxury cosmetic bags containing 5 products from one of seven luxury brands.
There are currently seven Discovery Bags available to purchase: First Aid Beauty, Kevyn Aucoin, Eve Lom, Lipstick Queen, Caudalie, Sukin and Clinique. These are the perfect way to try out several products from a luxury brand for a fraction of the price.
First Aid Beauty Discovery Bag
First Aid Beauty is a luxury cosmetics brand designed with the skin’s best interests in mind. All of First Aid Beauty’s products are created with ingredients your skin will love – no parabens, artificial colours or fragrances – in fact there’s a whole list of nasties that you won’t find inside First Aid Beauty products on their website here.
First Aid Beauty’s products are designed to hydrate, nourish and repair the skin and ensure these results last. All First Aid Beauty’s products are safe for sensitive skin too.
Here’s what’s inside the First Aid Beauty Discovery Bag:
First Aid Beauty Pure Skin Face Cleanser (28ml)

First Aid Beauty Ultra Repair Cream (59ml)
If I could name this product myself I’d call it magic wonder cream – because is literally works wonders on your skin!
This cream is designed to provide dry skin with intense hydration and immediately relieve skin. It’s rich but not sticky and it absorbs super quickly – it’s like the skin just can’t get enough of it! Apply this to dry skin and watch for the transformation.

First Aid Beauty Ultra Repair Hydrating Serum (7ml)
Serums are essential in winter to give skin that extra layer of hydration and protection – this one also works to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. The gel formulation works on all skin types too.

First Aid Beauty Facial Radiance Pads
Exfoliate, tone and brighten your skin with these facial radiance pads infused with Lactic and Glycolic Acid. The alcohol free formula means they’re safe to use on even sensitive skin.

Kevyn Aucoin Discovery Bag
This is one for the luxury makeup lovers out there – five makeup products from the premium makeup expert Kevyn Aucoin. The five products inside are everything you need to create that perfect ‘going-out’ makeup look.
The Kevyn Aucoin Discovery Bag is one of the higher value bags with a value of over £97.
Kevyn Aucoin Mini Expert Mascara (worth £23)
The luxury gold packaging holds the Mini Expert Mascara. Apply the buildable formula with the arched two sided brush to cover every lash perfectly. The brush is designed to help arch the upper lashes whilst defining the lower lash line.

Kevyn Aucoin Glass Glow Lip
Whilst this might look like a lip gloss.. And can be used as a lip gloss… the Kevyn Aucoin Glass Glow is actually a tube of highlight which can be used all over the face.
With its radiant formula it provides the ultimate glowy finish.

Kevyn Aucoin – The Sculpting Powder in ‘Medium’
A cool toned bronzing powder, the Kevyn Aucoin Sculpting Powder creates contour and definition in all the right places. It also comes in a cute little velvet bag so the packaging doesn’t get scratched.

Kevyn Aucoin The Precision Liquid Liner in ‘Black’ £27
A full sized product to complete the box – the Kevyn Aucoin Precision Liquid Liner.
The felt tip eyeliner pen is super pigmented and can give you the ultimate flick with only one layer. The fine tip makes it easy to get the finest subtle line or build it up to the desired intensity.

Kevyn Aucoin Mini Molten Gems Lip Gloss in ‘Poppy Topaz’
This colour reminds me of summer! The Kevyn Aucoin Mini Molten Gems Lip Gloss in shade Poppy Topaz is a beautiful coral shade with underlying gold shimmer. Either wear this alone for a subtle colour or layer on top of a lipstick for added sheen.
