But one can never have too many cosmetics, and Look Fantastic is the ultimate beauty solution. Instead of getting new products from Sephora, opt for the Beauty Box. It contains 6 hand-picked products like haircare, skincare and cosmetics! Featured brands rotate monthly, creating a great try-before-you-buy opportunity, minus the mark up prices.
