Lust Have It! April, 2012

My April Lust Have It! box finally arrived today. Yes, today. I know it's the first of May but there was a few postage issues. Unfortunately my box was lost during the shipping process but it's here and all that's all that matters! 

Although there was issues with the delivery of the box, Lust Have It! were incredible. Once again, they kept their subscribers up to date, notifying them every time a piece of information was revealed about the whereabouts of the missing boxes. Thank you, Lust Have It!, for keeping confusion to a minimum.

I'm sure you've all heard that Lust Have It! and Glossy Box have merged and will now be operating as one beauty box under the name of Lust Have It! If you haven't heard, now you know. Ever since my Beauty Box Comparison post I've been trying to decide which box I liked better and which I would unsubscribe from. With the choices being GlossyBox and Lust Have It! my decision has been made for me. YAY! I hate making decisions. 

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.
True Solutions All Day Tinted Moisturiser Cream SPF 30+ - RRP $60.00 for 100mL
I received a 20mL bottle of this product
 "This clinical strength moisturiser combines sun protection and light coverage with intensive hydrating properties. Provides a healthy glow to the skin. Wear alone or under make-up on face, neck and d├ęcolletage."
I'm really looking forward to using this product. I love the idea of tinted moisturisers, especially if they have good coverage, so I'm looking forward to trying this product!
EmerginC Kombucha Cleanser - RRP $44.00 for 120mL
I received a a 3mL sample of this producr
 "A deep cleanser that removes environmental pollutants."
EmerginC Phytocell Moisturiser - RRP $105.00 for 50mL
I received a two 3mL samples of this product
 "This grape stem-cell based moisturiser ."
Although each subscriber was meant to receive one of each of three products from this range (with the last being emerginC Phytocell Detox Mask), however that doesn't bother me. Each product sounds fantastic and I can't wait to use them.
De Lorenzo Elements Ocean Mist Sea Salt Styling Spray - RRP $23.95 for 195mL
I received a full size of this product
 "This salt infused spray provides the feel and texture of beach washed hair. Mist onto wet or dry hair to create a messy look or enhance curls. Contains sunflower seed cake and sea kelp to condition and nourish."
I really like this product. In fact, I like it so much I already own it. Regardless, however, I think it's a great product to include in a box such as this. Plus it smells delicious!
 I Nuovi Glitteratti - RRP $19.95 for 2.5g
I received a full size of this product in gold
 "Used by professional make up artists, this sparkling Cosmetic Gitter adds glamour and shine to any look. Apply to lips, face or body with fingers or brush. Dust off excess. Apply to nail tips or a single nail under a top coat for an edgy look."
I like the concept of this product but I'm not sure how often I'll actually get to use it. I kind of wish I'd received the turquoise colour featured on the box card but, oh well, gold is still pretty! I'll be messing around with this product in the coming weeks just to see what it works with. Who doesn't love glitter? 
 Spa Fresh Blends Romantic Discovery - RRP $15.95 for 250mL 
I received approximately 50g of this product
 "This luxurious tub tonic dissolves instantly to soothe the soul with the aroma of rose petals and leaves skin gloriously smooth with essential oils of Sweet Orange, Bergamot and Ylang Ylang."
I don't completely understand this product but I think it's a similar concept to bath salts. I'm not a massive bath person, but I like the concept behind this product.

So, ladies and gents, that's what was in my Lust Have It! box for April. It would have been great if this product arrived in April but, as I said, the communication was fantastic so I can't complain. I like the contents of this box, however I don't think it compared to last month's. If you haven't seen my post, my March Lust Have It! box was my favourite subscription box yet. 

Also, I'm not sure if you guys saw this, but this month's box arrived in a make up bag. Score! It reminds me a lot of the US' Glam Bags (a similar service where the products are packaged in make up bags) and I'm not complaining. I love having cosmetic bags!

Anyway, what do you guys think of the contents of the box? Also, what do you think of the two beauty boxes merging? Do you think it will result in amazing boxes? I'd love to know!

Always look your best,
