Yes I know! I’m a bit behind but it’s all good because the product samples I received from Lust Have It! in May is worth it. Now, with the takeover of Glossybox, I was a bit hesitant to continue my subscription because I wasn’t sure of the brands on offer to keep going.
I gave it a go and this is what I received:
As soon as I opened this bag, it was heavenly aromas bursting out of it! I have to thank Lush for this for making amazing Lust soap that is jasmine infused with perfumes. I don’t want to use it and would happily sniff it all day long. I like that Lush is against using products that are tested on animals and also hand make all the products. What’s good about their website is that they state when a product Jim completely vegan which is good to know for those living that lifestyle. This soap costs $6.95 for a 100g block.
What was also included was a sample of Chloe perfume. I have always loved this perfume as it is rose petals mixed in with natural rose water. It is not an overpowering smell and is great to give off a soft scent. I think this is more of an Inbetween winter and summer perfume. This can be bought from the Lust website for $80 for 30ml but I did manage to find a 100ml bottle online for $100 from Cosmetics Now.
Next, there was 3 Biore products. I received a pore unclogging scrub, triple action toner and pore strips. The pore scrub usually retails at $10.99, toner for $8.99 and pore strips $10.49 for 14 strips. I managed to find these items at chemist warehouse for approx. 30% off but I know that Priceline also offers these products. Biore can be found at local pharmacies and local beauty stores.
Next I received a Showface Eyeshadow in a silver colour. It didn’t list the item shade and the notes indicate that there are 45 colours to choose from. When going to the website, I felt that the only option was to buy a palette and for 30 colours, it cost $165. Not the cheapest of options and it’s hard to tell the quality of these products. I guess the good thing about the palette is that you get to choose your colours where as pre-packed items in retail stores more set as they are. Good thing about this company is that it offers courses for retail beauty and skin care.
Final sample I received was a OPI nail polish from the Nicole range. It was a deep purple and I wasn’t given the name unfortunately! The Nicole range has so many different colours on offer and I counted over 100.
I’m not a big fan of lighter purples so was happy to receive this colour. I prefer the deeper shades of purple. This nail polish range can be bought from the OPI website for $14.95 or there is the option to buy this from Hairhouse Warehouse or Terry White Chemists. I did manage to find the nail polishes for $7.99 from Ulta. I found that there is a lot of campaigning for the Kardashian range on the OPI website as well. Don’t be put off by it if you’re not a fan because the colour range on this collection is enormous!
So there you have it! All the products from the May Lust Have It! beauty box. I really enjoyed this pack because it came with a Mother’s day card which meant you could gift the pack, keep it for yourself or give the card to mum with some really nice poetry inside.
The post for June is coming real soon!
Thanks for stopping by!
