LustHaveIt - August

I just received my August subscription from LustHaveIt (it turns out the postal service in my new town is on the ball and so far, all deliveries have occured before 9am!)

Last month (I didn't make a post about it) was very disappointing in that most of the box was designed, it felt, for someone else.  The Avene skincare was useless to me and the BabyFoot pouch is not recommended for Diabetics and so on.  Oh well.  Its always going to be a hit and miss I guess!

This month, Lust Have It have redeemed themselves in my eyes.

The packaging this month was very pretty.  It reminded me of a gift from an upmarket department store!  'Luxury' comes to mind.

Its a nice selection of products, which I like too. 

First up - tanGOTanning Glove - full size

The card says "The tanGO tan removal glove acts like elastic, gently pulling the tanning pigment away from the skin without the use of harsh exfoliants or chemicals.  Also doubles up as a great makeup remover just add water".
RRP:  $29.95
I will give it a go for makeup removal, as I don't use fake tanners at all.  Its an interesting concept!

BedHead - Glaze Haze Smoothing Serum - sample size

Card says:  "This semi-swet smoothing hair serum woks to smooth the hair cuticle and fight humidity.  Lightweight, Candy Fixations Glaze Haze Smoothing Serum reduces drying time and adds a high shine to any hair type".
RRP:  $25.95  50ml
Well, this couldn't have come at a better time!  I have just moved to North Queensland!  We will be experiencing the 'wet' season very soon where humidity will be at its highest and it will be absolute hell on my hair!  This also smells like a lolly shop!  Lovely.

Marc Jacobs:  DOT Fragrance - sample size

Card says:  "DOT by Marc Jacobs the new lush floral fragrance captures a charming and upbeat spirit with timeless sophistication.  Fluttering sweet and fruity topnotes of red berries that descend through a trail of jasmine and orange blossom, landing on a base of vanilla and musk".
RRP:  $160.00  100ml
I'm not normally a fan of MJ scents.  But, I do like this one.  When you first spritz it onto the skin - its fresh scent hits you.  I think it will be perfect for summer.

Pure Fiji Exotic Bath and Body Oil - Orange Blossom - sample size

Card says:  Nourishing blend of exotic nut extracts that will rapidly hydrate and condition your skin.  A balance blend of cold pressed Virgin Coconut, Macadamia, Sikeci and Dilo nut oils form a uniue bio-network that promotes cellular renewal for younger looking skin and protection from environmental elements".
RRP:  $34.95 236ml
I'm very keen to try this.  My legs get very dry, but then I also have a problem with ingrown hairs after shaving etc.  This sounds like it will soften and moisturise the skin making it smooth and lovely.

Shiseido Lipstick - Perfect Rouge RS612 ('Gilded Wine')  sample size

Card says:  "A new formula that provides true intense colour with all day hydration.  This ultra-smoothing formula blends effortlessly for a luxurious finish". 
RRP:  $43.00  4.5g
I tried this colour on and its super pretty!  It can be sheared out on the lips and it still looks lovely.  It would be very pretty with a lipgloss over the top to either accentuate the colour of the lipstick, or maybe a pop of shine just in the middle of the lip.

Wet n Wild:  Nail Polish - full size

Card says:  "A composition rich in colour: intense elegance, light pastel colours and tones.  Enjoy the benefits of these enamels from the first application of colour.  Ultra uniform coating with no trace of imperfection".
RRP:  $14.95
This nail polish is really pretty.  Pefect for summery tootsies!  I will be putting a proper application on today (not just the couple of swipes on my nail that I did this morning!).

So, I'm happy with LHI Augusts Subscription.  I will use EVERYTHING in this box with enthusiasm.  I may post a follow-up blog on my thoughts and some swatches.

Thanks for reading!
