I received my Lust Have It JANUARY monthly beauty box yesterda... in FEBRUARY. Absolutely love the time management skills of some companies. It's not like they were not aware that there are two different holidays in January, and had ample time to plan ahead...
1. Simple cleansing facial wipes - 7 wipes (RRP: $6.99 for 25 wipes)
I could have sworn I received a packet of these wipes in a previous beauty box, except I can't figure out which beauty box it was. Nevertheless, Simple facial wipes are fantastic. I will be bringing these with me to Tasmania this weekend for my wedding!
2. Invisible Zinc Tinted Daywear SPF30+ in Medium - full size (RRP: $14.95 for 20ml)
On first swatch at the back of my hand, it was too dark. However, when I applied it on my face, I was able to blend it out and they were not kidding when they said "sheer". My face just looked bare. However, I'm sure that if I applied another layer or two over, it'd be probably be too dark.
3. Paula's Choice Skin Perfecting 8% AHA Gel Glycolic Acid - 30ml (RRP: $45.80 to 118ml)
I find it weird that on the Paula's Choice website, it is recommended for dry/very dry, combination skin, as it contradicts what it says on the bottle.

4. Natralus NatraSan Antibacterial Instant Hand Sanitiser Chamomile & Apple Blossom - full size (RRP: $4.49 for 28ml)
The claim that it is non-alcohol-based is false. In the ingredients, it says "Alcohol (Derived from Sugar Cane)". I've used it about twice now, and it's a good hand sanitizer. The only con is that it doesn't have a cap, so I wouldn't be keeping this in my handbag, as I have a sneaky suspicion that my hand bag will be 100% germ free at the end of the day.
5. Colorsmash by Condition Culture - 3g (RRP: $15.60 for 4.1g)
Received this in a previous month's box, July 2013 to be specific (read here). Although it is a different colour to what I've received, this is still a completely useless product for me, as I would never use it considering my dark, almost black hair, and it being such a wild colour that even if it shows up, it won't be what I'd call "work appropriate".
6. Aveda Dry Remedy Daily Moisturizing Oil - 3ml (RRP: $25 for 40ml)
Overall, I'm not entirely impressed with Lust Have It (yet again). This month has reassured me that I made the right decision choosing not to accept their "special" offer of $150 for a 12 month subscription offered to me a week ago.
What did you get in your Lust Have It box? Were you impressed?
