Lust Have It! June 2014

Yeah, it's July. I received the June LHI* box/bag on the 2nd of July. Seeing as I am not a subscriber, I'm not bothered by when it arrives, but I can understand the frustration for regular subscribers. Anyway, moving on to the contents...

The new packaging has returned! I'm really glad, I've accumulated too many of the boxes and I actually threw out a few the other day because I'm short on space.


La Roche-Posay Effaclar Duo
John Plunkett Glyco Peel
Teez Trendy Cosmetics Nail Lacquer

La Roche-Posay Effaclar Duo RRP $27.95 (sample size)
I've never tried this brand, but I see it everywhere. I'm interested in giving this a try.

John Plunkett Glyo Peel RRP $29.95 (full size)
I'm verrry interested in this. I'm wondering if it can be used as a spot treatment, because I've been trying to fade the dark spot on my face left over from a spider bite (with glycolic acid). I've heard that it can sting on application, at least I know beforehand, so I don't get a rude shock when I try it.

Teez Trendy Nail Lacquer RRP $18 (full size)
Of course a nail polish inclusion will impress me! I've never heard of this brand, and I don't have a colour like this in my collection so its an exciting product to receive. The bottle is an interesting shape.

Hello Fresh Voucher
Nuxe sachet samples
Orly nail files and toe separator 

Hello Fresh Voucher
Hello disappointment? I've seen this before in a previous LHI box. I checked it out and it was fairly overpriced, so the $30 doesn't really go that far. 

Nuxe sachet samples (RRP $44.99-49.99 for two different products)
SACHETS. Sigh. It's a shame because I've really wanted to try Nuxe, but I guess I will try and over look that they're sachets.

Orly mini nail files RRP $1.65 and toe separator RRP $4.95
I'm unimpressed by these. Mostly because they have a bright red sticker on them saying 'FREE with every 2 Orly mini polishes'. Well, at least give us the polishes? Don't get me wrong, these are useful products (I can pop the nail files in my handbag), but they're not exciting. 

Overall this box is alright. I'm not raving about it, but I don't hate it. 

What are your thoughts on this months box?

  1. I think the only two things that tickled my fancy in this box was the effaclar duo, and the nail polish (with that fancy box n all) I can imagine how frustrating it can be for subscribers to get the box the month after...but on the upside, at least the bag is reusable! I wish they had a more "decent" box consistency like ipsy or something here in aus... D:

  2. You'll love that serum! I use it all over the face as a treatment then apply moisturiser over top :) it's amazing!!!!!
    It does sting on spots that are open... Like if you've just popped one it'll sting but otherwise it's fine. I hope you love it as much as I do :)

  3. I am not impressed by June's "pack"... I hope the content and timeframe will improve this month...

  4. Haha! "Hello disappointment" - it's a little been there, done that. Love the colour of the nail polish you got!

  5. I'm glad I got a polish in my pack, and the Glyco peel. I tried it last night, and had some light all over tingling so actually rinsed it off as directed for sensitive skin. I don't usually have sensitive skin issues but its better to be safe than sorry! I look forward to trying it again and hopefully being able to leave it on..

  6. Your blog seems interesting. I do have a similar blog about Hairdressers in Rockhampton

  7. I'm going to try the glyco one when I've finished my Alpha-H one. I'd love to hear what you think of it. I'll review both glyco products here when I've tried enough of both:

    Here's to hoping we like it : )
