Another month has passed and another late beauty subscription box blog post. Unfortunately, I was one of the unlucky people this month who received their Lust Have It box late (about two weeks late). I won't go into too much detail in this comparison post as I feel as though if I start examining the two I will start a massive rant. Overall, let's just say I was thoroughly unimpressed with both boxes this month.
BellaBox dedicated their box to Australian brands this month - which is quite patriotic as January is holds the beloved national Australia Day. Now, as much as I love Australian brands I felt that these products were quite 'meh'. I mean I love to look after my skin and therefore discovering new skincare products, but when pretty much all the products inside this months box were skincare products I was quite annoyed. The only actual 'make-up' product in this month's box was a sample of Natio BB Cream - which I could have picked up for free at a chemist or a department store. Thus, very disappointed in this months box.
After the dissatisfaction of BB's box I was looking forward to see what Lust Have It had in store for this month. Because I had received my box pretty late (1st annoyance) I had seen the other Australian bloggers post up what they had received in their box and from what I saw I was over the moon - it looked fantastic. It has included a Nude by Nature BB Cream and Face Of Australia bronzing powder - two things I really wanted to try. I was wishing, praying, hoping that when my box came I would be receiving at least those two products, but of course when it did arrived I received the wrong colour BB Cream and no bronzing powder. Instead of the bronzing powder I received a Silk Of Morocco lip gloss which I had previous received in another beauty box and absolutely hated it. So after seeing that I had received two awful things I saw that I had received 3 Avene skincare products and sample satchels of shampoo and conditioner. Seriously??!????!?! As much as I love Avene products I was extremely madden when I saw them. I'm pretty sure throughout the last year of subscribing to both boxes I have been given at least 20 different types of Avene products - enough is enough.
So much for not ranting, hey? Anyways, it's pretty clear that both boxes were disappointing this month (well in my opinion anyway). I'm seriously contemplating of just unsubscribing because I'm fed up of receiving terrible products. If next month is like this I'm definitely going to be unsubscribing. So who wins this months beauty box battle? Lust Have It - based purely on the fact that the box is beautifully packaged.
/ END RANT.
