Lust Have It - May 2013

I was pretty happy to receive my Lust Have It beauty box today after not receiving April's box till the very last day of the month.

This month's box has 5 items inside, 3 of which are full sized.  I have mixed feelings about this month's box but I know you all just really want to see what's inside:

The Natural Source Camoflage Colour Lipgloss  "White Cherry" 
This is a clear shimmery gloss that is very thick and quite  sticky.  Maybe it's thickened up in the tube a bit coz its cold but I had to give it a good squeeze to get some out.  Doesn't appear to have any smell or flavour either.

Seacret Buffing Block
Happy to receive this but I have to say that it's RRP of $30 is a rip off.  Surely a buffing block is a buffing block and I know you can get decent ones for a quarter of that price.  Also I'm pretty sure that Seacret is that annoying brand that has stalls in the middle of shopping centres that always try to put hand cream on you while you're busy trying not to look them in the eye as you walk past.... (or is that just me)

Paula's Choice Clear Exfoliating Solution
I received a Paula's Choice product in my last box too but from what I can see this (like the last one) is suited for oily skin.  I have dry skin.  This is a brand that I've heard a lot about and wanted to try so a little disappointing to get something that I can't use.  That's always going to be the way though with boxes like this!

Nude by Nature Papaw Ointment
Happy to receive a large 75gm tub of this - will keep it beside my bed for a lipbalm and cuticle treatment before I go to sleep I think.

Tigi Elasticate & Recharge Shampoo & Conditioner
4 sachets of two different types of shampoo and conditioner.  Personally I find sachets quite hard to use more than once as they always fall over in the shower (first world problems I know) but I'm still happy to give these a go.

Overall I have mixed feelings about this month's Lust Have It box - there's no doubt that it holds more value than the price I paid ($15) but they're putting (and already have for new subscribers) their prices up to $20 shortly and they're really not providing anything much more than Bellabox which is $15.  Probably won't use the Lipgloss and won't use the Paula's Choice solution but everything else I will definitely use and enjoy.

What do you think of this month's Lust Have It?  Are you a subscriber?  Did you get something different in your box?

Always love to hear your thoughts

  1. I haven't received mine yet :(

    I hope I don't get that box it doesn't look very good. There is another box that received OPI nail polish and one that had four colour cosmetics on their FB page, though they didn't say what.

    Have you received your Lipfactory this month, it's very late.

    1. Yeah pretty average! Four colour cosmetics - that would be nice! Ah well you win some you lose some.

      Lipfactory arrived today and my sister got hers yesterday in Brissy so you should get any day now - but yes it was very late this month.


  2. I have mixed feelings about this month's box too. $30 buffing block is a rip off for sure.

    I received 4 colour cosmetics - 2x small opi nail polish; a automatic brow pencil and the lip gloss. I thought it was pretty average because the gloss was really thick and I never draw my brows. I think few people received a facial serum instead of the buffing block or body lotion - very envious.

  3. I agree this month's box was pretty average. I always find there's a couple of products in each box that are disappointing. The Seacret products all see to have a RRP of $30.00 which is so expensive for what they are. I received a body mud, which I think is more useful to try than the buffing block.
