June Lust Have It Box

June 17, 2013


My June Lust Have It box arrived this morning, and this is the earliest I have ever received my LHI box! This even arrived before my Bellabox! I did film an opening video for this box, so if you can't be bothered reading, then watch below!



The theme this month was The Great Gatsby. I love that idea for a theme because, not only did I enjoy the movie but, that era is so popular with makeup and fashion now, so you could do a lot with this theme. Besides the red lipstick sample that came in the box, I didn't really get the connection with any of the other products that I received.



So above is the information card with all of the details of the products. Even though there is a pretty good variety of products - two makeup, a body care product, hair product, and two skincare items... none of these were full sized items so I am sure that a lot of people will wonder where the value of this box went.


Rachel K Mineral Colour Control CC Cream - four sachet samples: After many people had received these samples in the April(?) LHI box, I did some research into the products and I really wanted to try it. I ended up using my LHI points, and just over a week ago I bought the full size of this CC Cream from the LHI store. It arrived this morning as well as my LHI box, so I haven't yet tried it. I wish I got the samples before I bought the product :P Nevertheless, it is good that the included four sachets so you can really test whether this will work for you. See the swatch of this CC Cream later in this post.

Batiste Dry Shampoo in Cherry - 30g sample: I don't use dry shampoo too much now that I have short hair, but they do come in handy. I currently have a couple of these small bottles under my sink from previous subscription boxes. People who have been subscribed to subscription boxes for a while may be sick of getting Batiste samples, but I am interested in trying the Cherry scent, because I love cherry and I also love the packaging... so I can forgive the Batiste addition this time.

Pure Fiji Hydrating Body Lotion in Coconut - sample: This is another brand that pops up in subscription boxes often. I hate coconut scented products, but luckily this smells more like vanilla. I am not excited to use this, but it will get used.

Real Purity Natural Lipstick in Romantic Red (sample) and Crown Brush Disposable Lip Brush: I love receiving lipstick samples, but I much prefer to get a small lipstick tube rather than this little pot... other than that, I am happy to give this a go. The card makes this look like it is a really pigmented lipstick, but when swatched (see photo below), this looks more like a tinted balm (which I will probably get more use out of on a day to day basis). The disposable brush is a good addition with this lipstick pot, but it seems a little flimsy. I would be much happier to use this if it was in a tube.

Dr LeWinn's Foaming Cleanser - 30ml sample: This is a good size sample for a cleanser, and I am looking forward to trying it because it is a balancing cleanser that is supposed to remove excess oil. This works for me, and I don't know if LHI are sending out different ones to match peoples skin types, but if you have dry skin and you get this, you may not be super excited to use it. I am generally not a fan of Dr LeWinn's skin care, but I will give it a go.

Dr LeWinn's LSC Hydrating Day Cream - 20g sample: This sample contains 20g of product and the full size contains 30g of product... why not just give out the full size? hmmm... strange. I'm happy to use this and see what I think. When calculated, this sample costs $46.60, which makes up the bulk of the value of this box... I would like to have seen the value spread throughout all of the products.

Overall this box wasn't very exciting, and it only contained samples! When LHI increased the price of their boxes from $14.95 to $19.95 they promised that each box will contain at least $60 of value. This month it seems like they relied on the hydrating day cream to make up the bulk of that value, and they skimped on the rest of the products. I will use each of these products, so I am not complaining too much, but I think if they threw in a full size lipstick or something else instead of only samples, they would have made the box seem less empty.

  1. Instead of the dr lewinn products I received an eyeliner a body cream and opi nail stickers...even though your samples probably cost more than my products the box felt a little fuller...price of the box was definitely not 60 though!

  3. I am not impressed with this box so am sure I will get it. The ironic thing is that I received the EXACT same Dr Lewinn same size day cream that you received for free in the mail on Friday from a free sample site . So not really happy with their products this month .I will have to wait and see what I get .

    1. love the unboxing video. It certainly seems that the one tiny sample in each box is where the value is... my sample of Doctor Babor is like, 5ml or something, but that works out to be around $25 or more! Not really what I signed up for unfortunately.

  5. I still haven't received mine, but I'm not overly excited about it now... unless of course that ring is included!
