Lust Have It! February, 2012

My third Lust Have It box arrived today which was exciting. I find that this box always arrives fairly quickly but it's always a nice surprise.

Anyway, it's finally here so I'll just get into it. 
The new Lust Have It! packaging and logo
When I opened the box, I instantly got a whiff of something sweet. The box contains a card that details the products included (including an overview and the recommended retail price), as well as an introduction to the box and Lust Have It! updates.

I only received this box today, so I'm unable to review the products. Instead, I'll type out the information provided to me so you're able to get some insight into the items. If possible, I'll also include my initial thoughts.
Lancome Juicy Tube - RRP $46.00 for 14g
This box contained a 7mL sample of this lip gloss in what I assume to be 'Strawberry'
"A delicious, gourmet delight for your lips! This ultra-brilliant, flavoured gloss slicks on easily, thanks to its hand tube-tip applicator. Totally transparent shine, plus a hint of shimmering colour makes lips glisten for a glamourous lacquered effect."
I have a bit of a cold at the moment so I can't properly smell this lip gloss. I could smell a slight strawberry scent, however, which was quite pleasant. I've applied this lip gloss once already and, although I like the look of it, I found it to be stickier than I preferred. 

Davroe Tame Lemongrass Detangler - RRP $21.50 for 315mL
This box contained a 50mL sample of the spray
"This dual action Lemongrass Detangler is a lightweight non-greasy leave in hair conditioning/treatment mist that can detangle the most unruly hair, leaves hair manageable, luxuriously soft and silky, with the fresh natural fragrance of Passionflower and Ylang Ylang."
Again, I can't really smell this product due to my blocked nose. I like the concept of it though, as my hair's been pretty knotty lately. 
Sasy n Savy Rose Lavender Hand n Nail Repair Creme - RRP $25.00 for 100mL
This box contained a 5mL sample tube of this product.
"Skin nourishing evening primrose and macadamia oil soften and smooth. Shea butter soothes and heals dry skin. Vitamin C & E defends hard working hands from damage."
My cuticles are a bit of a mess at the moment so I need to start using this every night.
Lush Sugar Scrub - RRP $6.50 for 100mL
I think this box came with a full sized Sugar Scrub. There is no weight/volume listed on the packaging but it looks the same size as the ones on the Lush site.
"Our sugar scrub is hard, but a bit of a sweetie. Its' no nonsense stance stimulates activity and tackles cellulite with fennel and ginger. Skin calming lavender has a balancing effect."
As I mentioned, I can't really smell at the moment but, as far as I can tell, this product doesn't smell too bad. It doesn't have the same smell as a lot of Lush products but that's not necessarily a bad thing.

Taut Collagen Infusion Mask - RRP $44.95 for a pack of 5
This box contained one face mask sachet. 
"LAC Taut Gold Standard Collagen Infusion Mask is a facial mask that slips luxuriously onto your face to infuse concentrated premium collagen-enriched essence to tone, hydrate and bright your complexion in just 7-10 minutes!"
This face mask sounds amazing. My skin's a bit, well, gross at the moment so I'll be waiting 'til it clears up a bit. I want to be able to appreciate it fully.

So ladies, that's what was in my Lust Have It! box this February and, to be honest, I'm a little confused. As far as I was aware, this month's Lust Have It! box was meant to be a Valentine's Day box. As much as I like all the products in this box, I don't necessarily think they're Valentine's Day specific (apart from the Juicy Tube, that is). 

After this month's Glossy Box I'll be reviewing both boxes and deciding which I preferred. I will most likely be unsubscribing from one and subscribing to ILoveThisBox. Their boxes always look amazing. One this I've noticed about this box in particular is that their information cards don't make sense. They're grammatically incorrect and I find it really difficult to type them 'as is' into posts. 

Always look your best,

  1. I'm really disappointed in my Lust Have It experience so far too - I got two of the same box for Dec and Jan, without explanation or warning. My Feb box still isn't here, and I'm waiting for it. I'm pretty well over it, Glossy Box can sort themselves out, so it can't be that hard!

    1. I won't say too much now, as I'm planning on reviewing them both side by side soon, but I'm not too sure if I'll be continuing with Lust Have It. I'll wait and see though.
