Lust Have It! December box

Today is a good day. I got my uni results and am pleased to say that I am still maintaining a Distinction average :D oh, also I got a little surprise at my front door in the form of my amazing postie delivering a Lust Have It* box. Yay!!


Box description

Full sized samples
Sunsense Anti-ageing face sunscreen RRP $20.95
Maybelline Dream Pure BB Cream RRP $15.95

Sunsense sunscreen
Forgive me if I am wrong, but aren't all sunscreens anti-ageing, technically? Anyway, don't throw rocks at me but I am not a regular user of sunscreens (cue screams) because I don't burn. I use it when I spend the day outside at the beach/lake etc though so this saves me from having to purchase one. I'll definitely use this for those lazy beach days. 

Maybelline BB Cream
SO excited about this! I remember when this first came out and it was the talk of the town. I actually contemplated buying it recently but decided I needed to finish up my current BB's first. Very excited to use this.

Sample sized products
Clairol Visible Repair Intensive Mask RRP $13.95 for 200mL
Pelactiv Hydrating Cream Cleanser RRP $43 for 150mL
Uriage Refreshing Gel Cream RRP $49.95 for 40mL

Clairol mask
I haven't used Clairol products before so it'll be nice to try this out. However, I have about 5 other sample hair masks to try out first!

Pelactiv cleanser
Another brand new to me so I am keen to try it out. I have sooo many skincare samples I could probably use only samples for my skin for about 6 months before running out. The green tea extract sounds really lovely.

Uriage Gel Cream
So I received this box just after I had washed my face (with an Avene cleanser sample that I got in the last LHI box, actually!) and had not yet moisturised so I thought I'd use this! It was great, so lightweight and smelt pleasant. It sunk in really quickly and my skin feels so soft and hydrated. Win! I think this product and I will get along well. I've been using the Uriage makeup remover milk which I got recently in my Beautorium haul and I really like it, so this puts Uriage in my good books.

Maybelline Dream Pure BB cream sachet
Wine voucher

And a few little additional pieces. I probably will pass these on as I don't really use sachet samples and am not really much of a wine drinker.

All in all, this box is fantastic and I'm happy with every inclusion! It is a great box to end the year with and LHI have been blowing me away each month :)

  1. Woo hoo! Congrats girl! Two awesome surprises in one day ❣ Does the medium tone BB cream suit girls with medium-dark tones? Hopefully I get a medium or dark shade and not a light coloured one. =)

    1. Thanks Sunshine :) I tried it out before and it seems to be a good shade match. It has very sheer coverage and is meant to 'adapt' to your skin tone so hopefully you'll find it ok! From the other reviews I have seen, it seems to be the medium shade they are sending out so fingers crossed you get the same :)

  2. It's a very strong skincare box! I have the medium shade for the one with salicyclic acid, and it's still a little light!

    1. It is indeed! I think that version has a better formula actually, this version is reallyyy sheer and a bit too watery :/

  3. I was a bit underwhelmed by this box, but I'm glad to see a lot of people are enjoying it! I guess this is the backwards effect of me liking other boxes that everyone else seems to hate haha! Most of this stuff will probably get given away, but no matter! xx

    1. I've seen some mixed opinions about it, I think I like it because the whole concept of a beauty box is still new to me :) its a shame you aren't a fan but at least you can use the products as stocking stuffers ;)

  4. I received the same box and was very happy with it. I've been meaning to buy Maybelline's BB cream for months and kept putting it off. I was super excited to see it in this box! ^_^

    1. Haha I think the BB cream made quite a few people very happy!
