Lust Have It women's box June 2014


Because I was silly enough (or smart enough - I haven't worked out which yet) to keep an eye on Facebook for any news re the late arrival of our June boxes, I already knew what was coming this month and I wasn't excited. Nor was I excited when it arrived. 

I honestly think that has a lot to do with the terrible pink plastic bags LHI has started sending out - our 'boxes' don't even feel special when they show up in something so cheap and ugly. Or maybe that's just me.

After the timely and wonderful May box, I had high hopes for this one - particularly because I knew it would contain a Teeez product. Unfortunately I was disappointed on all counts: it arrived yesterday (in July), it's not a good box and the Teeez product isn't great. 

One thing I do like, however, is that it appears we all got the same contents - this is so much fairer (take heed, Bellabox!). Violet Box does the same, meaning that no one feels like they've wound up with the leftovers - a much better idea I reckon.

Teeez Trend Cosmetics, Easy on the Eyes Eye Pencil (black) (RRP $24, 1.5g; received full size)

As always I love the Teeez packaging, but what you might have read so far about this product is true - it's not waterproof and smudges easily. With my puffy eyes, this pencil didn't last a second. 

According to the product description, it's supposed to be waterproof and long lasting. Rubbish. A disappointment, since Teeez products are normally decent. This may end up being a display-only item since I don't even want to give it to anyone - it's not good enough for that.

La Roche Posay Effeclar Duo (RRP $27.95, 40ml; received 3ml sample)

I've received this before. The product is fine, although the sample is tiny and you can't tell much from such a small amount - you need a few more applications to properly trial a product like this. 

It's supposed to reduce severe imperfections and unclog pores in 30 days. We'll never know if it can with a sample this size! As mentioned, the other issue is that I've received this exact sample at least once before. I'd prefer something new.

John Plunkett Glyco Peel (RRP $29.95 for 15ml; received full size)

This is really the only potentially decent item in the box. Glyco peels are all the rage at the moment and I'm happy to trial this one. The description says it's 'a clinical strength night-time exfoliator with 25% glycolic acid'; and it aims to reduce fine lines and discolouration. 

A note to others with sensitive skin like mine: do treat these types of products with care or you'll wind up with dry, flakey, red skin. You may not be able to use it every day.


I'm not sure I can be bothered saying much about foam toe separators and nail files that are gift with purchase items!

Nuxe Creme Nirvanesque (RRP $49.99, 50ml) and Eye Contour (RRP $44.99, 15 ml) sachets 

Both sachets are 2ml. I guess you could argue that's kind of ok for an eye cream, but for a face one? In any event, this is the third time in six months that I've received Nuxe mini sachets in subscription boxes. The products are fine (the stand-out being their wonderful dry oil, which there's been so much hype about), but I'm not interested in receiving these. I can confirm that they smell nice - that's something ; ).

In sum

Obviously, I'm somewhat unhappy with this box (!). A shame, since I was over the moon about the last two LHI boxes and the June FAB box. Look, occasionally you're going to get boxes that don't wow you and you accept that, but there have been too many of those from LHI over the past year, in my opinion.

What did others think of this box?
