June 2014 Lust Have It Womens Box

Last day of the month and my box has finally arrived. After that wait and last month’s fabulous box I’m a little underwhelmed.

This is the June Lust Have It (LHI) Womens subscription box. The Womens box is the flagship of this brand each month; you get 5+ beauty products to try, mainly samples and some full size. I pay $19.95 per month, but there are other payment options. Find out more at Lust Have It.

Once again LHI is a bit late. I’ve only seen people beginning to get them today so a lot of people won’t get it until next month. I theorize that this may have to do with an overload of FAB box orders and the quarterly ECO box. LHI has returned to the plastic makeup case mailed in a postage pouch this month. Since this has no added protection I predict damaged products for some people, but so far I’ve not had any problems. This makeup case isn’t the best quality but not the worst either. We also got a voucher for Hello Fresh box,I'm sure this voucher was in a previous box and wasn't really worth much.

The front of this month’s info card has a discount code to get $20 of a $120 brush set. This is the same set that you could have gotten with an annual subscription this month. I’m not likely to buy these but I would love to hear about the quality from anyone who has gets them. On to the products!


Teeez Trend Cosmetics – easy on the eye pencil
RRP: 1.5g for $24
RECIVED: full sized (value $24)
This is the product we could choose from, I chose the eye pencil. I knew that we were getting this brand in the FAB box and worried that there may be a double up. Typically there was also a Teeez eye pencil in the FAB. This is a bit annoying but since they are different products (both black) I’m not that upset.

That said I prefer the Mysterious Crystal Eyeliner, Easy On The Eyes glides on almost like a liquid liner and smudges nicely but doesn’t seem to set as like the Mysterious Crystal which is bad for my eye shape. Supposedly this product is water proof. I find that even 20 minutes after application it entirely wipes off even without water, so I don’t see the benefit of it being water proof. a light dusting of setting powder seems to help with this. I also prefer the mechanical pencil design. That said this is still a lovely pencil and like all Teeez has beautiful packaging.
 You can check out my review on the Teeez products from June FAB box.

John Plunkett – Glyco Peel
RRP: 15ml for $29.95
Received: full size (value $29.95)
This is an apparently a “clinical strength night-time exfoliator with 25% glycolic acid in a buffered solution.” It also contains Lactokine (I’ll have to look this up) and Aloe Vera.
I find this a little interesting as I’ve been thinking of a facial peel but I’ll use it sparingly. I find that its interesting to have different directions for different skin types. Also has the benefits of being made in Australia and not tested on animals.

La Roche Posay – Effaclar Duo
RRP: 40ml for $27.95
Received: 3ml (approx. value $2.10)
This product is supposed to help improve skin texture showing results after 30 days. As this is a small sample I doubt I’ll get that much use out of it. Also, I won’t be using it in conjunction with the John Plunkett as they both rely on acids and I don’t want to over treat my skin. I have heard some good things about this product though so it’ll be interesting to try.

I may be mistaken but I’m pretty sure that some people got this in their June Bella Box, this may be a bit annoying for them but will give a better sample of the product. I didn’t get it but you can see what I did get here.

Orly – Nail File set and Toe Separators
RRP: file set for $1.65 and Separators for $4.95
Received: Full Size file set and Separators (value $6.60)
I’m not that thrilled about the inclusion of these products. See the sticker? They were both a GWP from Orly and I feel that toe separators are the most painful and pointless tool, give me tissue wads any day. The files come in a cute match-book like packaging and don’t seem to be that bad quality, so they will be good to carry around.

Nuxe – Crème Nirvanesque and Crème Nirvanesque eye contour
RRP: 50ml for $49.99 and 15ml for $44.99 respectively
Received: 2ml each (approx. value $8.00)
So, sachets samples; you know how much we all love them and another anti-aging product. At first I thought it was two samples of the same product but then I realized it was one of each. I don’t have too much more to say about these other than I don’t like seeing fragrance/perfume listed in an eye cream.

Paid $19.95 (post included) received value of $70.65
The value of this box is good but beyond that I have to say I’m a little disappointed. I was really looking forward to the Teeez pencil but it seems to have no staying power and then a bag full of anti-aging creams. Your making me feel old LHI. Sure I have a birthday in the next week, but its only 24! Yes I do get that we should star early on anti-aging skin care, especially with the harsh Aussie sun, but I feel that this is a bit of over kill. Also the delivery issues are getting past a joke.

When I get next months LHI Box I intend to include a review of these products after giving them a good trial.

So how did you fair with this month’s Lust Have It box and which Teeez product did you get?

  1. I agree this box looks a bit underwhelming (particularly after last month's!). Thanks for comparing the two Teeez eyeliners; looks like I might be giving this one away and keeping the one from the FAB box ; ).

    1. maybe read others reviews about the Teeez. It is supposed to be water proof, etc. so there may be something wrong with mine. I also like the sparkles in the FAB one.

  2. Hi Annie,
    It will be interesting to see what I receive in my June box; which, hasn't come yet, unfortunately.
    I reviewed the May lust have it on my blog-
    The May box was my first box and I thought it was pretty good. I haven't got the highest hopes for my June box after seeing your review.
    Great review, I look forward to seeing more of your posts.
    Kind Regards
    Aimee :)
