October Beauty Boxes Comparison

Last month I Subscribed to a whole load of new beauty boxes so I could share my thoughts with you!

I’m going to start off with the ones most people already know about


I think this one has to be the most well known brand of beauty boxes, founded in 2011. Boxes cost £13.25 on a rolling month by month subscription or £11.25 if you commit to 12 months (saving you £18 over the year)

Inside this box we have

This Works Stress Check Clean Hands – Deluxe Mini 60ml worth £4 – Full Size 500ml RRP £15
Anatomicals Boob Tube Grab Your Melons Body Lotion – Deluxe Mini 50ml worth £1 – Full Size 200ml RRP £4*
Josephine Cosmetics Lip / Power – The Matte Bold Liquid Lipstick – Full Size – RRP £21.80
Eyeko Spotlight Highlighter Pencil – Full Size – RRP £15
Saint Luxe Setting Spray – Full Size – RRP £18

Total Box Value – £59.80

*As October is Breast Cancer awareness month, purchases of this lotion are supporting the invaluable work of Coppafeel. 40p from each purchase is donated.

Birch Box

Birchbox was founded in September 2010. You can sign up for a monthly box with no minimum subscription for £13.95 per month. 3 Months up front is £38.85 (£12.95 a box), 6 Months up front is £74.75(£12.45 a box) or 12 Months up front £145.40 (£12.12 a box – Saving £21.80 across the year)

For some reason this months box doesn’t have an info card in it, so I have had to have a mooch online to find the RRPs so these are only estimates

Naobay Detox Illuminating Micellar Water Full Size RRP £16 (CF & Ve)
Nails INC Tate NailPure Nail Polish RRP £15
Algologie Regard Des Vagues Refreshing Eye Gel RRP £21.50
Morning Street Green Daily Shampoo Full Size RRP £15 (Ve)
Anatomicals Shower of Love Bergamot Shower Cream Full Size RRP £2

Total Box Value : ?

So this is a bit of an odd one – The box I received and the box I should have received are 2 very different things! I have contacted Look Fantastic but haven’t yet had a response.

What I should have received

Dr Botanicals Turmeric Mask
The Vintage Cosmetics Company Scrunchies
Phillip Kingsley Bond Builder 20ml (Received)
Rituals The Ritual of Melhr Body Cream 70ml (Received)
Filorga Oxygen Glow Cream 15ml
Ecooking Cleansing Gel 125ml

They don’t give a total box value or any RRPs in the leaflet.

And what I actually got in the box…

Check out my previous LookFantastic Boxes

and then onto the new boxes I have come across

Look Incredible

I can’t find much information about this company but I can see they were incorporated in November 2017 so I’m guessing they started around then. This box only offers full sized products – no sample sizes here!

This one is £35 a month on a reoccurring payment they don’t currently have any offers to buy 3/6/12 months upfront.

Inside the Look Incredible box was a note to say they aren’t able to put contents cards inside the box (but they could put a note?) and these will be emailed, however I don’t seem to have received it!

With your Look Incredible box you get a 5% discount code for when you spend over £20 online excluding beauty boxes.

Milk Makeup Kush Lash Primer Duo – RRP £24
Doctors Formula Probiotics Overnight Repairing Serum 30ml – RRP £50
Too Faced La Creme Lip Balm Moisture Treatment – RRP £15
YSL Pink Vanity Mirror Purse – Free Gift
IT Cosmetics Bye Bye Pores Bronzer – RRP £27

Summary of October Beauty Boxes

My October Beauty Boxes have contained a fabulous mix of goodies! I do find Glossybox and Birchbox have similar and duplicate products between them so I wouldn’t have both at the same time. LookFantastic was previously my preferred box but some of these new boxes are definitely worth a try if you want something else!

I think if I had to choose just one it would be a real tough choice between the Look Incredible and Cohorted but I think for the slightly extra cost the Cohorted is definitely worth it.
