Lust Have It! October

Another month another box and different packaging once again! October's Lust Have It! box came in a little pink netted bag, probably because the contents were too big to fit into one of their regular makeup bags.

My box only arrived last week and because of this I got to see other bloggers reactions to the box and they weren't all that positive. They've recently changed the system so now instead of everyone receiving pretty much the same box there are 3 different possible boxes that you can receive. Of the reviews I have seen I got the "Fun & Flirty" box which looked to be the best of the three so I was pretty happy with that.

Here's what was inside!

1. Mask in a cup (Full size - $9.95 for 35g)

I actually received a couple of these from Terra 2Skin, which I have yet to use, but they look really cool. It's basically natural clay which you mix with water to become a mud mask. I will be sure to review for you once I have used them.

2. Star & Rose White Bath Fizzer (Full Size - $4.95 for 145g)

I love baths, like really love but sadly we don't have one at our place :( It's one of the only downfalls of our little house. Therefore I might have to give this beauty away...although my sister has said I can come bathe at her house haha that might be a little weird though! It has a slight floral scent to it but its not overpowering.

3. Avene Cleanance Skin Trio:

Avene Cleanance Gel Soapless Cleanser (25mL - $27.99 for 200mL)
Avene Cleanance Emulsion Anti-Shine Regulating Lotion (5mL - $22.95 for 40mL)
Avene Cleanance Cream-Gel Exfoliant (5mL - $24.99 for 40mL)

Even though I've never actually bought an Avene product, I've got so many samples from them I know that I love most of their products. I was super happy to see not one but three samples from them in this months box. There is a gel cleanser, cream exfoliant and an anti-shine moisturiser. I can't wait to try these out, they smell amazing! and the cream exfoliant sounds really interesting.

4. Caron Waxaway Ready to Use Sensitive Wax Strips (2 Strips - Pack 20 from $9.95)

I'm not much of a waxer not because I am scared of the pain just because I find shaving easier. I'll be interested to test these out, although as there is only two I don't know what I would wax! haha

5. NYX Cosmetics Girls Nail Polish - Clear (Full size - 12mL for $4.95)

I was excited to see a NYX item included although would have preferred a makeup item, or at least a cool colour polish instead of the clear. I guess it will be good for my new office job though as I can't really wear anything too crazy on my nails.

Total Value = 9.95 + 4.95 + 3.49 + 2.86 + 3.12 + 1.00 + 4.95 = $30.32

I was pretty happy with this months box. It included 3 full sized items and 3 Avene samples. The wax strips and the nail polish weren't that exciting but I think the rest makes up for it.

What did you guys get?? Were you happy with it??

Hmmm...I think you have got great products here. I am interested in trying out the Avene trio. I usually search for different skin care products so that is why i am more interested in Avene. I want to know how it will work on my skin.

Yay,another Perthian! Although I don't technically live in Perth I classify myself as one :P
Great blog & great post, I've always wondered if it's worth subscribing to these boxes but I 'spose there will always be hit & misses.
I'd really appreciate if you could check out my blog too :)

Dawnelia said...

Lucky you, that's a lot of good products in last month's box :)

I've used that Avene blue gel cleanser before, it is really good at keeping oil/shine at bay =) Moisturiser is nice,too. It would be cool if they included a NYX makeup item in their boxes, a blush or shadow would be popular I bet!

Hannah said...

@GirlieBlogger Yeah I love their products so I was very happy to see it in there!

@Adele Thank you :) I will do

@Emily I'd definitely recommend giving it a go, so far all the products I've tried from them are lovely.
