Nice to see you again: Lookfantastic’s December beauty box has some great repeats

I received December’s Lookfantastic box in exchange for an honest review. All opinions are my own. This post also appears on A Year of Boxes.

I just did that fun thing where you write an entire post only to discover it never saved and have to start from scratch. Good times. December’s Lookfantastic box arrived earlier than it usually does so I’m happy to have it here for you today.

They’re from Love Aiki, a subscription box that delivers four to five full-size organic and natural skincare products customized to your skin type every other month. Read More
