Lust Have It May 2012

Wednesday, 9 May 2012

This morning my LHI box came and it felt a bit weird, since I only got my April box last week. 

Now I'll say straight up that this box is only for existing LHI members. If you're an ex Glossybox member, you will get one of two other boxes. 

So what's in my box....

Firstly, it's in a gorgeous bright pink cosmetics bag. The theme this month is celebrating "the month of motherly love." To make up for the chaos that was the April pack, there are 8 products in the bag.

ModelCo Shine Ultra Lipgloss in "Strip Tease"
I absolutely love ModelCo lip glosses. They are one of my favourite ones, and I can never have too many! Striptease is a gorgeous pale shimmer pink that's perfect for a nude look. You might have received a lipstick instead of a lipgloss.  

Evo "The Therapist Calming Shampoo and Conditioner"
These are cute 50ml samples that are great for anyone with frizzy hair. The last Evo product ("the Great hydrator" mask) that was in a previous LHI box left me disappointed, as my hair still felt dry after using it. So I'm interested to see how well this works. 

Caron "Bump eRaiser Medi Paste"
I hadn't heard of this brand before, but it won Beauty Heaven's Best in Beauty Glosscars in 2011 so it must be good. It's for ingrown hairs in both males and females. I don't really suffer ingrown hairs, but it also helps with bumps. This is a 30ml sample.

Bioderma Crealine H20 Makeup Remover
When I saw this in the pack I had no idea what it was. The packaging is terrible as it doesn't have that it's make up remover, and there are no instructions on the back in English (just French). Luckily the card lets you know what it is! I can't wait to try this as the make up remover I'm using at the moment (a Garnier one) just isn't cutting it. 

Lush "Dirty Soap" Soap
This is such a different smell. You can really smell the Spearmint in the soap. It's a great wake me up smell for a cold winter morning. You could have got their "Lust" soap in your box instead of the "Dirty" one. 

Calvin Klein "Sheer Beauty" perfume sample 
This is such a gorgeous light perfume that would be perfect for summer. I haven't used CK perfumes before (except from a sample from "Beauty Box") but my husband uses them and the guys scents are really nice. 

Nicole by OPI Nail Polish
The last item I have mixed thoughts about. While I love getting nail polish, I'm disappointed I have already received this exact same one from LHI back when they first started. This really should have gone to the Glossybox customers, or at least there should have been new colours. I still haven't finished the one from the last box!

What did you think of it? Let me know what colours you got. 


  1. Oh this pack looks awesome! I'm itching for mine now! So excited for it all!

  2. Looks great, I can't wait for mine! Interesting that ex-GlossyBox-ers get different boxes tho?
    Also, have you seen on the ILTB FB page that they might not be sending out a box this month? I wonder what's going on...

  3. Looks like a great box! Wondering whether I should sign up for LHI now that they are merging with GB. I cancelled GB because they were just sending me tons of skin care!!

  4. WHat a lovely box to receive! Whilst I agree with the Nicole by OPI shade (I have the same one from back in the days;)) I think the shampoo and condtioner is a great inclusion. I have been using the bumpEraser for ages and I really like it. The best way for me to know if I like a product is if I buy it again which is what I've done for the bumpEraser. Let me know what you think X

  5. If you could only choose one box which is your fav?

  6. I got pretty much the same except for the model co lipgloss- I got the shade showgirl red. I would of preferred to have got a lighter shade like yours.

    For the lush soap I got 'lust' & for nail polish I got a shade in that same range (there is 4) which I didn't get in previous boxes. When I got mine was thinking oh great, they didn't think to double up for previous subscribers but I guess not in your case...I agree that should of been given to GBs first.

    In general I don't think they should give alternate
    products. ie the lush soaps this month. They should just either give us two smaller samples of each or just one & another one later on so we get to try others that we haven't in future. Does that make sense?

  7. Mine is identical to yours! I really like all products from this LHI box. They seem to be the best ones at this stage.

  8. Looks like a great box, bag, case haha! I'll definitely get use out of alot of the products this month hope mine comes soon!

  9. I've JUST uploaded my May bag from lust have it. I was SO impressed!! I'm one of those GB customers that was merged over at the end of last month, and so far, so happy :) x

  10. Hey! Am new to your blog... Love it. You seem so down to earth. Can I just say how the hell did I not know about these beauty boxes??? I love this type of thing.... Would love to know if there are any more available. Keep up the good work!!
