My Lust Have It box arrived quite late this month, I was getting reports from friends saying that they got theirs last week and I was starting to get worried that mine wouldn't turn up. It finally arrived yesterday and I was pretty pleased with the contents!
For anyone who isn't aware, this is an Australian beauty subscription box that costs $19.95 per month and you can join up here. Use the code "kitsch" for $5 off your first box
Lately LHI have added quite a few cards to their boxes. There were three in this months box (besides the information card). The cards are shown above and one is about a free session at Benefit, one is a gift card to Hello Fresh, and the last is a Davroe deal. For people who don't know what Hello Fresh is, it is a service that creates recipes and delivers them with the ingredients to your door so you can make the meals. I will be keen to try it!
The information box that comes in the card is below, and it lists all the items I received in this months box along with a description and retail price of each item.

Lonvitalite C3 Collagen Firming and Moisturising Facial Mask - 1 mask: These masks pop up in subscription boxes a lot these days. Personally I prefer to use cream/mud masks compared to these cloth ones, but I will give it a go.
Aveda Botanical Kinetics Toumaline Charged Hydrating Cream and Exfoliating Cleanser - 50ml samples: These are very expensive products! I used both last night and the exfoliating cleanser is ok, but I much prefer the hydrating cream which is really thick and is a perfect night moisturiser. Both of these smell very earthy (aka a little like dirt) but I don't mind the scents. These tubes will also last quite a few uses, so you can definitely try before you buy.
Mary Kay Limited Edition Mary Kay Pedicure Set Energizing Foot Scrub - full size: Foot treatments are always the things that I forget to buy. This scrub is part of a pedicure set that contains a food soak, a food scrub, a food balm and a pedicure brush/pummice. In this November LHI box you can receive one of the four products that are in the pack. I really like the idea of this pack because maintaining your feet is really important leading up to Summer and sandal weather. I like this foot scrub but it does smell a bit weird, its like a mix between citrus and mint or menthol, but its nice none the less. I am going to have to research where I can get this pack.
Davroe Wellbeing Treatment Replenish - full size: This is a brand that hasn't features in LHI boxes for a while, they used to always include Davroe products back in the day and I remember a lot of people getting sick of them. I personally am a fan of Davroe hair care, so I was happy to see this treatment in this months box. This is a full size hair treatment and its works a bit like a deep conditioner. This smells just like the Palmer's Shea Butter, which is quite strong and floral. I used this last night and I do like it, it made my hair soft but quite volumous. This tube is quite small for a full size product though, and I can imagine it only lasting a few applications.
Palmer's Cocoa Butter Formula Gent;e Exfoliating Facial Scrub - 15ml sample: I was hoping that this would smell like cocoa, but it smells more like soap. This does scrub really well and if you like a strong exfoliant, then this is for you.
Benefit They're Real Mascara - 3g sample: Finally I am trying out this mascara! I am sure that this will be the most exciting thing from this months box for most people who receive it. This is one of those mascaras that have a spiky brush (see photo below) and they tend to be really good at adding volume to your lashes but not making them too clumpy. I am wearing this today and so far I like it, but it's not the best mascara that I have ever tried.
Mary Kay Thinking Of You Eau De Parfum - two one-use samples: Lastly we were given two one use samples of the Thinking Of You perfume by Mary Kay. This perfume comes on a little towelette that you can wipe of your skin. I find this to be slightly too floral and I can imagine this scent being one of those ones that give me a head ache.
Overall this is probably one of the best LHI boxes that I have received in the last few months. What did you guys think of this box?
