8 February 2016


The January Lust Have It Box arrived the other day, here are my thoughts on this month’s contents;

What They Say
Lust Have It boxes regularly contains products worth $60+ for only $19.95/month! Monthly box filled with 5 to 6 premium beauty samples. Delivered to your home or work each month for you to try.

RRP: Lust Have It Box (monthly) RRP: $19.95, Eco Box (quarterly) RRP: $29.95 – but if you use my unique code LIFESTYLE at the checkout on the Lush Have It website, you are eligible for $5 off your first box from Lust Have It, and at the same time you’ll also be supporting Beauty & Lifestyle Hunter, as I will get a few dollars too if someone subscribes using this code. Available from Lust Have It

What I Say:
Like previous months, this months’ products arrived in a pink mesh bag, and this month it included three full sized items and two deluxe sample sizes.

Unani Micellar Water – Full Size (RRP: $22.50/200ml)
I’ve never heard of this brand before, so bonus points right there as I love trying new brands, which is also one of the key reason I really like subscription boxes. This micellar water has a beautiful gentle floral scent and claims to remove impurities, and purify the skin, leaving it soft and hydrated. Unlike other micellar waters I’ve come across and use, it does not mention anything about removing makeup, it is almost like it is more of a toner with moisturising benefits. Regardless, I do look forward to trying it out.

Hikari Blush – Full Size (RRP: $21/6g)
I have previously received Hikari products in a subscription box, but from memory it was an eyeshadow quad in shades I wouldn’t normally use, so it is more than likely sitting untouched in my stash of makeup. This blush, in the shade ‘Bikini’ is a pinky peach shade with a light shimmer, a shade that I’d normally reach for, so I do look forward to seeing how the quality and wear stacks up.

Hikari Lip Crayon – Full Size (RRP: $18/2.5g)

Another product from Hikari – and while I don’t mind terribly as I do like lip crayons, I would on the other hand have preferred if it had been from another brand for a bit more variety in the box. The info card mentions you’d either get the shade Sunkissed or Amour, yet I actually got the shade ‘Macchiato’!! Go figure! Anyway, the shade ‘Macchiato’ is a warm peach shade, not my usual choice, but regardless, a lovely shade.

Skinyoga Almond Face Scrub – Sample, 5.67g (RRP: $24/50g)

Another new brand, yay! And from the first glance at the packaging I was in love. Small timber crates, what a novel idea – although they would be a bit wasted as soon as the product is taken out – except my little 2.5 year old boy is currently pirate obsessed, and he quickly declared that they were ‘treasure chests’, so as soon as I’d taken the photos, the empty boxes disappeared into his pirate ship! LOL!
The actual the product is made from 100% natural ingredients and claim to hydrate, nourish and repair damage from excessive use of chemicals while exfoliating the skin and removing dead skin cells, and even lightening scars with regular use! The face scrub comes in a little glass bottle with a cork lid – again I’m loving this as its just so different, even down to the cork lid that you hardly ever get in wine bottles anymore! The actual scrub is a yellowish powder that is prepared by mixing it with water. All in all sound pretty good to me, so cannot wait to try it out.

Skinyoga Sandalwood and saffron facemask – Sample, 5g (RRP: $24/50g)
Another product from Skinyoga – and as with the Hikari, I am excited to try more from this brand, I would yet again have preferred a product from another brand for more variety in the box. As with the Face Scrub, the Face Mask comes in the timber crate and in a glass bottle with the cork lid, and it also has to be made up by mixing it with water. This face mask is intended for dry skin, and as I have combination skin, I am a little more hesitant putting this mask to the test, also because my skin has been particularly troublesome lately with breakouts so don’t really want to bug it too much.

So there you have it, the contents in the January Lust Have It box which contains a combination of skincare and makeup products, although unfortunately only from three different brands. The value of this months box is quite reasonable at almost $70 (the Skinyoga products both have price tags of $4.20!), although in terms of value, previous boxes have exceeded this.

In terms of the products, I am generally quite impressed, as the Unani micellar water will always be useful, the Hikari blush has a lovely colour and the Skinyoga scrub I also cant wait to try. As for the Hikari lip crayon I am not sure I’ll really like the shade and the Skinyoga face mask doesn’t really fit my skin type, so I may pass these onto a friend.  So all in all a resonable start to the year, not brilliant, seeing I am unsure about two out of five products, but certainly not bad either – bring on the February box!
