A little on the Lust Have It! train once again this month. I feel as though I always receive my box a little later than other bloggers out there as they always beat me on getting it up! Anyways, for those of you who are unaware of LHI! it is a beauty subscription box where you receive 5-6 samples that are supposedly valued up to $60 for only $19.95 a month. I will mention as well that I currently have a discount code - DUGONG - that you can use to receive $5 off your first box!
I tried to avoid reading other bloggers post of this month's LHI as I really wanted to be surprised when I opened up the box, but curiosity got the better of me and I had to take a sneak peak at what other bloggers received. From what I could see, this months box had a few interesting items in it, but nothing spectacular. Nevertheless I was still hoping that there would be something special in my box.
Unfortunately I was wrong. I don't know whether it's me just having high expectations after receiving an outstanding box from Wantable earlier in the month (post here), or if it's just a really underwhelming box.
As you can see from the description card below, this months box was all about 'Spring Fling'.
I'm truly disappointed that I only received two full sized items - both of which are items I would have never purchased. I'm always finding it hard to believe that all these items are valued up to $60. Considering how tiny the samples are (and come on.. giving out tampons?) and the two full sized items are retail priced for $35.
I will end on a positive note and say that I am excited to try the Mary Kay Makeup Remover and the Bioderma goodies. But I am really considering of discontinuing my subscription to LHI and switching to Wantable instead. Or maybe even no subscription boxes at all as I was cleaning out my makeup desk today and I found months and months of samples that I hadn't even touched yet and forgotten about! Oops.
What did you think about this month's LHI?
