“lookfantastic” the online British beauty boutique
Founded in 1996, lookfantastic.com is the original online British beauty boutique. Today, they are Europe’s number one online retailer for hair, beauty and skincare.
The lookfantastic range
Their range is absolutely massive with over 14,000 products from more than 350 brands across hair, make up, skin care, nails, electrical, fragrance, health, home fragrance and organic. They also have a member rewards programme, exclusive free gifts with some purchases as well a monthly beauty box you can subscribe to.
Look fantastic have a dedicated team of beauty experts who receive regular training directly from brands, they sell. These include Estee Lauder, GHD, Dermalogica, Redken, Lancôme, Origins, Kérastase, REN, Benefit, Elemis and so many more.
There is also lots of helpful advice on hair and beauty including videos of how to achieve the perfect look with hair straighteners and curlers as well as lots of reviews. This really helps as it means you can do lots of homework before making your purchases.
Our advice is to search for products you already have know and love where makeup is concerned. The prices do seem to be very competitive but if you buy something which you never use that is not savvy shopping.
The disadvantage of lookfantastic’s wide product range is it can leave you feeling a bit overwhelmed. You can also find yourself being sucked into buying things you really don’t need or already have loads of. To avoid this particular pitfall, make a shopping list and stick to it when you visit lookfantastic.
Lookfantasic has an excellent range of gift boxes and although stocks many of the popular fragrances you won’t find Chanel or Yves Saint Laurent here – currently anyway. They also have a monthly Beauty Box which you can subscribe to receiving. We have not so can’t comment on this.
Standard Monday to Friday working day delivery is free and takes two to three days.
If you need something urgently they can do next day delivery and deliver on a Saturday and Sunday however there is a charge for this. You can find information on lookfantastic’s delivery options here.
As you would expect when supplying hair and beauty products lookfantasic quite rightly have a strict returns policy. You will need to contact their Customer Service team to arrange any returns. Before you contact them ensure you have your order number, the item you want to return and the reason for return.
Upon receipt of these details they will provide you with a unique returns authorisation number and all the necessary information to arrange the return. When posting do make sure you obtain proof of postage. There is no charge for this but will save any complications if your return is lost in transit.
Great for online hair and beauty shopping. Will definitely save time especially if you visit the site and stay focused on what you are shopping for.
