Lust Have It - October 2012

I feel like I say some version of this every month but Lust Have It seems to be arriving later and later each month. I mean there is only two days of October left and I have only just received my pack. Though at least this month Lust Have It emailed me to notify me that my box was being posted on Wednesday last week. 

Once again I received the 'Fun & Flirty Lust Haves' pack. This month the pack arrived in a little drawstring ribbon bag. Personally I don't really care what it arrives in. I care more about what is in it. This month the card doesn't give any reasons as to why products were included, it just talks about their Pink Ribbon packs (which are now sold out).

The October Lust Have It pack contains:

Mask in a Cup Facial Mask - 35g $9.95
I was really excited to see this in the pack. Who doesn't love a face mask? Especially when it is full size. Well I don't! Not when it is made for oily skin and my skin is dry. Essentially a useless product for me. 

NYX Cosmetics Girls Nail Polish in Roots - 12ml $4.95
The best thing in the box. This is a full sized nail polish in a pretty pinky-nude colour. I actually really like the shade and have never tried anything from NYX before.

Avene Cleanance Skincare - Gel-Cream, Anti-Shine Regulating Lotion & Soapless Cleanser - from $24.95
Avene seems to be a favourite of the sample boxes. I think this would be the 3rd time I have received products from them. Normally I don't mind, this time I do. All these samples are for oily and blemish prone skin. My skin is neither (as established earlier, mine is dry). Again no use to me.

Caron Waxaway Ready to Use Sensitive Wax Strips - from $9.95
This is a sample pack with 2 wax strips and an after care wipe. I don't wax (and honestly, barely shave - blessed with fine, pale hairs!) and 2 strips would not even do one leg, let alone both. Seems like a bit of a useless sample. May use them on my brothers legs when he is annoying me though... Haha! 

Star & Rose White Bath Fizzer - 145g $4.95
This is a bath bomb. Not sure if there is any more to say. Pretty boring I think. I cannot smell any particular scent, though it does smell okay. We have a bath but I must say in 8 years it has only been used 3 times. Yeah don't like baths, they waste too much water (What? I have lived with drought for too long). Won't use this. 

Ah, Lust Have It what happened? You used to be my favourite and the best that was available. I would you always recommend you to others. I think you have lost your way a little. 

It is not so luxurious any more, it is honestly a little blah. I have made deal with myself, I am giving Lust Have It one more month to improve and get back to what it used to be or my subscription will end. At the moment it really is a waste of $14.95 a month. I miss the old Lust Have It.

Are you subscribed to Lust Have It? What did you receive this month? Happy or unhappy?


  1. I still haven't received by box with only two days of October to go. It's a little ridiculous, I'll be getting the same box as you. Can't see anything new and exciting in the boxes and I hope they lift their game in November or I'm unsubscribing.

  2. Yours looks a bit better than the L&L but still not what I call new products to try. There are only so many times you can try the same brand before you work out if you like it or not! Having said that, interested to know if the Avene gel really does peel skin!

  3. It sucks that the products don't suit your skin type :( hopefully it gets better next month!

  4. I had a similar feeling of disappointment as you. My 'mask in a cup' is for dry skin yet I have oily skin. They clearly don't look at the profiles at all!!
