June Lust Have It!

So I'll be honest, I wasn't overly impressed with June's Lust Have It pack, and that's why it's taken me a while to post this. It arrived a bit late, maybe a week ago, this time in a PURPLE makeup bag.



LonVitalite - 24K Active Golden Yulan Oil Facial Mask
LonVitalite - 24K Active Gold Full Eye Mask

Both of these I'm on the fence about. They seem to be the highest value products in the pack with the 5 Packs being RRP $59 and $45 respectively. However not having tried them yet, I'm not sure if they would be products that work for my skin. I do have an event coming up though, so they work as great alternatives to getting a professional facial. If they're impressive, my feelings about the June pack will probably flip.

Batiste - Blush Dry Shampoo

I've seen Batiste products coming up in the Lust Have It packs before and honestly, although it's a convenient to have product (I'd just run out myself), I don't think it qualifies as a high end sample (I saw them in Coles for about $4).


Bloom - Glitter Eyeliner

This is a full size product and should be some fun. I like that it came in purple, which compliments brown eyes, however I don't personally get a lot of use out of glitter products.

Marc Jacobs - Daisy
Marc Jacobs - Daisy Eau So Fresh

As you'll have seen from my May favourites, I already own and love Daisy Eau So Fresh, so it's convenient to get a smaller sample size that I can stick in my handbag or take away somewhere. I was more pleased with the Daisy sample as I like trying new scents. Originally I never liked Daisy and I'm still not super keen, but I love the dry down. Overall I would have liked to receive a sample of something that I don't have anything like, like the Calvin Klein Sheer Beauty which seriously made me consider buying the full size. Also I don't really like getting perfume samples in these subscription boxes because I know I can just ask for them at department stores for free.

Sorry that this was a bit of a negative post, but that was genuinely  how I felt about it. I'll keep you guys updated with how the LonVitalite masks do and whether or not they changed my mind about the pack overall.


Edit: My boyfriend and I tried out the LonVitalite masks and the verdict is.... I liked it! It felt really refreshing on my skin and it felt like there was something going on underneath it (you know that tingly feeling). My skin was left soft and the appearance of acne scarring was better. It does say on the packet that continued use offers the best results, and I haven't seen any long term improvements so I'd say that's probably right, but with the price tag, I'd like to try out some cheaper alternatives first (I've seen a bunch in Priceline recently anyway).

  2. I like the marc jacobs sample perfumes but other than that not much else. I've unsub to beautyboxes, I never end up using any of the products in there.

    1. Yeah it wasn't a very impressive box this month. I'm still sticking with them though cos I'm only new to them!! Hopefully next month turns around!
