Lust Have It - August 2012

Yay! My LHI box has arrived!! And it has a new look! I was actually quite disappointed that it didn't come in a bag, as I am using all the bags they have sent to store unopened makeup items, and am using it for travelling as well. However, I do like the simple black bow around a plain white box. :)

The contents of my LHI box

I was pleasantly surprised to see so many interesting goodies (details further down below)... as well as a jewellery box! As an annual LHI member, I was sent a pair of pearl earrings worth $80. This is to also celebrate LHI's first birthday (Happy birthday LHI!)!

This is what I received in my LHI box:
1. tanGo Tanning Glove - full size (RRP: $29.95)
From the name on the LHI information card, I thought it was an applicator glove. But this is actually a tan removing glove. It works like an elastic pulling the tan pigments away from the skin. It can also be used to remove makeup with the help of water. An interesting item, but not sure if I will use it because I don't use fake tan and I have in place a solid makeup removing system that I don't intend on changing. If you do use this, let me know how it goes!

2. Tigi Rockaholic - Rock out shine blaster - full size (RRP: $27.95 for 100ml)
Apply this to damp or dry hair to seal in cuticles, speed up drying time and add shine! I have applied a tiny amount to my hair, and I love it! It smells amaaaazing! My hair was shiny/glossy upon application but I think the shiny-ness has died down.

3. ModelCo Eyeliner - Black - full size (RRP: $26.00)
I really like that this eyeliner has a built in sharpener in the cap, as it saves me trying to find one when I'm in a rush. I also like that this is black, and therefore can be used by everyone.

4. Marc Jacobs DOT Fragrance 1.2ml (RRP: $160 for 100ml)
Love this new floral Marc Jacobs Fragrance. It is not released in Australia, so it's nice to get a preview before it hits the shelves! Not sure if I'll purchase though, as I still have a ton of perfume to get through.

5. Appelles Body Booster Skin Lotion 30ml (RRP: $12.95 for 100ml)
The smell of this is amazing! I love love love the fragrance. Not sure how effective this is in regards to stopping the winter itch. Will test it out and report back, as I've got pretty bad winter itches! Been scratching my legs at night, and now I've got scratch marks :(

6. Appelles Skin Detox Shower Gel 30ml (RRP: $12.95 for 100ml) 
I'm taking this with me to Singapore for an emergency family trip today (along with the Skin lotion, Tigi Rockaholic, & Marc Jacobs perfume sample). Haven't opened it yet (have to break a stick seal to open) as I don't want it spilling in my luggage. I was running around trying to find a small body shower gel last night, and had to resort to taking a fairly large and heavy johnson's and johnson's baby wash thing (the blue bottle), so I'm glad this has come! I will be swapping this with the Johnson's and Johnson's baby wash!

7. Appelles Body Bar Vegetable Soap - full size (RRP: $4.95)
This soap smells like the generic ones you get at hotels! I quite like it actually. Although, I'm not a big fan of bar soaps, so this may just end up living in one of my clothing drawers to freshen up my clothes.

Overall, I'm impressed with LHI this month! They have really picked up their game with 4 full sized items, with the majority being items that I would actually use. Like Bellabox, there was only one makeup item which is quite disappointing, but not enough to ruin the box for me. I absolutely love everything (except for the tanning glove) and can't wait to try them all out. Happy birthday again LHI, and thank you for the wonderful box!
