Lust Have It! June 2012

Good morning my little bunnies! I am a little late with my review of this month's Lust Have It! but I have been very sick the last week. I am starting to feel better now and ready to indulge in my favourite beauty sample box service. 

1) Batiste Blush Dry Shampoo RRP $9.95 for 150ml Sample size: 50ml

The last few months have seen me become quite a fan of these dry shampoo products. When you have long & thick hair like me it gets very annoying very quickly to wash & style your hair everyday especially after going to the gym. I have been using dry shampoo's after my gym workouts to give my hair another day or two before it needs a wash and dry shampoos work fantastically for this. I find it also helps hold the style after use which is great for me as I spend forever straightening my hair but with this it helps give my hair that nice clean feeling while keeping the style. I rate this product a 4/5.

2) Roberto Cavalli Eau de Parfum RRP $80 for 30ml Sample size: 1.2ml

I do love fragrance samples and this Roberto Cavalli scent is very nice. I would wear it with a little black dress, black heels and red wine nails. 5/5.

3) Marc Jacobs Lola RRP $120 for 50ml Sample size: 1.2ml

I am a huge fan of Marc Jacobs fragrances and would wear this during the day on a trip to the beach. Yum. 5/5.

4) Bloom Glitter Eyeliner RRP $14.95 for full-sized product (sample size is full-size)

I'm not a huge fan of glitter but this eye-liner does have a very subtle glint and would be cute to wear to a party or club. I rate this product a 3/5. 

5) Lon Vitalite 24K Active Golden Yulan Oil Facial Mask RRP $59 for 5 Sample size: 1 mask

This was the one I was most excited to try in this month's pack and for good reason. I love using masks and even though they feel funny and get a bit fiddly they make your skin feel AMAZING and I noticed a visible added brightness to my skin afterwards. I rate this product a 5/5.

6) Lon Vitalite 24K Gold Full Eye Mask RRP $45 for 5 Sample size: 1 eye mask

This was just as good as the full facial mask and the skin around my eyes was definitely tighter and more radiant. Very nice! I rate this product a 5/5. 

And of course the gorgeous bright purple make-up case that it all came in. So thats now a blue, a pink & a purple case, I wonder what next months will be?
Overall I am really happy with this month's Lust Have It! and got to try some lovely new products I hadnt seen before.


BellaBox June 2012 Review

Oh Bellabox you really do light up my day! I just about squealed with excitement when I unwrapped this month's box of goodies. Lets have a look at what those amazing beauties at Bellabox have in store for us this month!
1) Benefit Total Moisture Facial Cream- Cult RRP $59 for 48.3gm Sample size: 3.5gm

I know I have said it before and let me just say it again I am absolutely in LOVE with Benefit Cosmetics! So I was stoked to receive some Benefit skin care products in this months box. This hydra-concentrated facial cream is to help improve moisture & radiance for dry skin. Firstly I love the smell of this cream- you can smell the mango butter and its divine! Very silky & creamy and absorbs easily with no greasiness afterwards. Yum, yum, yum!! I rate this product a 4.5/5.

2) Be In Awe Vimala Cleanser RRP $39 for 150ml Sample size: 2x 3ml sachets AND Codayati Renewal System RRP $120 for 50ml Sample size: 5ml

This is a brand I have never heard of before so was super excited to try them out. Australian made & owned and free from any nasties like SLS's, parabens etc. The cleanser feels very 'clean' and is very gentle but effective for removing make-up & all the day's stresses from the skin. The cute little renewal system pump action cream has lots of nice ingredients like Retinol and Gotukola for improvement of skin's little imperfections. The cream has a nice neutral scent and absorbs lightning fast and feels wonderful. A new favourite! I rate these products a 4.5/5. 

3) Pure Fiji Body Butter- Pineapple Fusion RRP $29.95 for 235ml Sample size: approx 20ml?

Oh wow this smells so good you just want to eat it! What a fabulous sized sample pot of body butter which is perfect for treating dry winter skin and the smell takes you to a tropical island straight away! Yummy! I rate this product a 4/5.

4) Benefit Porefessional Pro Balm- Cult RRP $58 for 22ml Sample size: 7.5ml

A lovely generous sample sized tube from Benefit. I am obsessed with pore refiners and make-up primers so was a happy little Vegemite to get this product. I LOVE the texture of this balm when applying and once its on it feels like there is nothing there- it blends so wonderfully and makes the skin appear so smooth and refined instantly. If there is one thing I am buying full-sized this month it is this! Wow! I rate this product a 5/5. 

5) Fan Di Fendi Fragrance- Fun Loving RRP $95 for 30ml Sample size: small sachet

Oh nice! We all know I love getting fragrance samples so was excited to find this. It smells divine and has a very grown-up feel about it and I cant wait to wear it to a night out at the burlesque club in a few weeks for my birthday matched with a black lacy dress & fishnets. Ooh la la! 

6) Sally Hanson Colour Quick Chrome Fast Dry Nail Pen RRP $16.95 each Sample size: Full-size

I got the pink chrome colour which is more like a very light pastel purple. I was a bit worried at first when I saw this product- nail polish in a pen what the? But I was soon having fun doing my nails with this no mess no fuss nail colour pen. What a great little idea to do your nails on the run- don't have to worry about spilling a little pot of polish over like I always do! Very fun! And very quick drying as always with Sally Hanson. I rate this product a 4.5/5.

7) Olea Olive Leaf Drops RRP $6 for 12 drops Sample size: 4 drops

I thought this was a really cute little sample for Bellbox to include as we come into the flu season here in Australia. Olive leaf extract & Manuka honey drops for when you get sick with a cold. I'm sure these will come in handy soon enough! 

What a massive month from Bellabox filled with amazing products for winter. Bellabox continues to be one of the very best beauty sample boxes in Australia and if you are tossing up as to subscribing I'm sure this month's review will help you with that decision!
