FOREO Luna Play Smart 2, down from £99 to £39.60 here at Lookfantastic

If you've been considering purchasing one for yourself or for a friend/family member for a while, today is the day to snap one up. One reviewer says of the cleansing device: " It really helped keep the oil production at bay, my skin was clear and exfoliated despite being in a highly polluted area".

Mama Mio Mama Marks Cream, down from £24 to £9.60 here at Lookfantastic

Snap up this much-loved cream at 60% off its usual RRP. "After using this cream for several weeks, I've noticed a significant improvement in the appearance of my stretch marks. While they haven't disappeared completely, they are definitely less noticeable and appear to be fading over time," says one impressed user.

Illamasqua Beyond Foundation, down from £33 to £11.55 here at Lookfantastic

For just over a tenner, this top-rated foundation can be yours today. "Glides on smooth. More of a light dewy coverage than a medium coverage, but layers up well if that’s needed. Really happy with the purchase!" says one reviewer.
