Product Review: Lust Have It – December Box

It is that time of month again. The time when the monthly beauty boxes arrives. This morning I woke to the lovely surprise of finding the *December Lust Have It Box by my front door, and here are my thoughts on its contents;

What They Say:

Available from Lust Have It

What I Say:
As per previous months, this month’s Lust Have It box also comes in a box with a magnetic closure and the new white design with the pretty blue, pink, orange and red water colour floral design.

And here’s a rundown of the goodies in this month’s box:

Maybelline New York Dream Fresh 8-in-1 BB Cream – Full Size (RRP: $15.95/30ml)
These days I tend to wear more BB, CC creams and tinted moisturisers, so I am definitely happy about receiving this one in a full size. It has 8 benefits for the skin, and is lightweight and oil free, so perfect for my combination skin. I got the medium shade, which is perfect for my skin now that the sun has gently kissed my cheeks!

Maybelline New York Dream Fresh 8-in-1 BB Cream with 2% Salicylic Acid – Sample Sachet, 1ml - (RRP: $15.95/30ml)
I have already received one of these sachet samples from somewhere, and I quite liked it, especially now that it is summer, and my combination skin in general gets a little greasier, and also breaks out a little more frequently. In saying that, on a daily basis, I do not have that many breakouts, so I am quite happy to have received the full sized tube of the standard BB Cream instead.

Pelactiv Hydrating Cream Cleanser – Sample Size, 30ml (RRP: $43/150ml)

This Cream Cleanser is intended for normal to dry skin types, and as I have combination skin prone to breakouts, I would have preferred to receive the Foaming Cleanser for normal to oily skin types that I know is also an option in this month’s box. But Pelactiv is one of those brands that I have had on my wish list to try, so it certainly won’t go to waste. The 30ml sample tube is a generous size, so there’s sufficient cleanser to try it out several times.

Uriage Aquaprecis refreshing Gel-Cream – Sample size, 15ml (RRP: $49.95/40ml)
This gel moisturiser is intended for combination skin, and aims to moisturise for 24 hour, without making the skin feel greasy or drowned in moisture. This sounds like the perfect moisturiser for my skin during summer, so I can’t wait to test it out. Besides, Uriage is yet another brand that I’ve wanted to try, so again I’m very happy with the inclusion of this sample.

SunSense Anti-Ageing Face SPF30+ - Full Size (RRP: $20.95/100ml)
I have used the SunSense sunscreen products previous and in fact recently purchased a SPF for the body as I really like their products, so I am very stoked with this full sized face cream being included. I also love that it is a specific anti-ageing cream that helps to reduce wrinkles with aid from the included AHA’s, Vitamins E and B3. I also love that it is free from fragrance, PABA and lanolin, and that it has an oil-free base and is non-comedogenic so it hopefully won’t make my skin break out

Clairol Visible Repair Intensive Mask – Sample Size, 30ml (RRP: $13.95/200ml)
There were two different options of masks included in the boxes, one for coloured hair, or the one I got for dry hair. Considering I just had my hair coloured at the hair dresser a week ago, I would have preferred the one for coloured hair, but as my long hair is always a bit dry in the ends, it still won’t go to waste. I don’t remember ever trying any Clairol hair products either, so I do look forward to testing it out.

Finally, the box also included a voucher for $100 off a case of wine, so you can get a box for $100. This is a great offer to fill the wine rack, but as I am still breast feeding and hence still completely off the alcohol, I will not be making use of this offer.

As per previous boxes I love how the Lust Have It box contains a variety of different products, including skincare, makeup and hair and body care and this month also sunscreen, which couldn’t have been better timing, just in time for the holidays.

This month’s box includes two full sized products including the Maybelline BB Cream and the SunSense sunscreen, and the value of these two products are almost $37, so well above the $19.95 price tag for the box. In addition the box also contains some generous sample sizes of brands Pelactiv, Uriage and Clairol, neither of which I have tried, so all in all, I am yet again impressed with not only the selection of product, but also the value for money of this box. You’ve done it again Lust Have It!

  2. The sunscreen is such a relevant inclusion in this month's box! Glad to see another full sized product - one of my favourite BB creams albeit it's a bit oily for my liking. Great box this month!
