LUST HAVE IT | Women's Beauty Box March '15 - Unboxing + Initial ThoughtsWednesday, May 27, 2015
You might have noticed a severe lack of Lust Have It posts over the past few months on CM. If you follow them on Facebook, or have seen the drama that they were having you would understand why. There's a lot of angry customers and if I was paying for this service myself (luckily they are being sent to me), I would be pretty damn annoyed too. I don't want to gloss over the fact that they haven't been having the best time, because I want to be truthful with you all. Negativity aside, I'll still be sharing the contents and my thoughts etc. because I think they include great products, and I hope now that they are finally on top of their shipping (which by the sounds of it they are), normal LHI posts will resume.
This is the contents of the Women's Beauty Box for March - they are a couple of months behind, and I'm pretty sure I read that they were skipping the April bag so they can get back on track. Included are seven products, two are full sized and the rest are deluxe sample sizes, or samples.
Appelles Hair Duo Pack - Blackseed Shampoo + Tamanu Conditioner (35ml samples) | Full Size RRP $68.00 [500ml each]
I've actually had sample bottles of both of these products before in a Violet Box last year. I remember quite liking them, and these bottles are ideal for travelling with. The brand is Australian owned and they use certified organic essential oils and are paraben free.
Urban Skincare Co. Daily Body Cleanser (35ml sample) | Full Size RRP $26.95 [500ml]
Another brand that has popped up in subscription boxes before is USC. I've used their body balm before and quite like it, so this body wash should be just as good. It's another great travel sized product, and it smells amazing.
Model Co. BB+ Cream Daily All-in-One Skin Perfector in Light | RRP $22.00
When I saw this in the box I was very excited, as I love trying out new BB Creams. BB creams are great for everyday wear, and I like the lighter feeling they have on the skin. This Model Co. one has SPF 30 Broad Spectrum and it's actually the right shade for me. I look forward to seeing how this one performances.
Lonvitalite C4 Coconut Milk Hydrating + Nourishing Facial Mask | RRP $9.95
Technically this is the other full size product in the box, but I wouldn't really count it as that. I've had a few of these masks from LHI it before and to be honest I really don't get along with them. I find they never fit my face right, and just feel to slippery on the skin, but for the sake of the blog I will try it out.
Uriage Tolederm Soothing Cleansing Water (8ml sample) | Full Size RRP $29.95 [250ml]
The last products are two sample sachets from French brand, Uriage. Lust Have It included a sample of the Cleansing Gel in their September box, and it was nice to use. Cleansing water's are really popular at the moment so I'm all for trying out new ones, this one promises to gently remove dirt and makeup without irritating the skin.
Uriage Tolederm Hydra-Soothing Cream (3ml sample) | Full Size RRP $39.95 [30ml]
And finally, a teeny tiny tube of moisturiser from the same French brand. This cream is aimed at super sensitive skin to soothe and calm irritation. My skin's not hugely irritable, although sometimes it can be, but I'll still try this out.
The total value of the products included is around AUD $48.00, almost double the amount of what you pay for the monthly subscription ($19.95). I don't think this box in particular was the best value for money, but I do like the brands and products included and I am especially looking forward to using the Model Co. BB Cream.
If you would like to sign up to the service, you can use the code CASSMYEE for $5 off your first Women's Beauty Box.
