Lust Have It Eco Box Autumn 2014

I received my Autumn Eco Box today.  It is very very late and I did have to contact LHI to find out where it was and finally it is here!  This is my favourite box that LHI has to offer it is $29.95 per quarter, this is a seasonal box full of premium natural beauty and skincare products, I am rarely disappointed.

Claytime Mascara - full-size - natural mineral mascara that gives intense black, glossy lashes without the nasties.  Infused with Vitamin E to help nourish your lashes.  Yeah!!  Who isn't excited by a full-size mascara, I am always on the lookout for natural mascaras that don't make my eyes itchy, really looking forward to trying this.  RRP$19.95

Cosmetic Kitchen - Bamboo Angle Brush - made with recycled aluminium, sustainable bamboo and vegan bristles.  Perfect to use with liquid eyeliner.  I don't use eyeliner but I find angle brushes are great to use if you smudge mascara under your eye area.  Just dab a little foundation or concealer on the brush and clean up without ruining your makeup.  RRP$6.50

Absolutely Gorgeous Body Wash - travel-size 30ml - gentle body wash free from nasties, this is a handy size to take with you when you are travelling.  Contains Organic Rosehip Oil and essential oils of Mandarin and Lavender.  Has a herbal aroma but I couldn't really make out the Lavender or Mandarin.  RRP$5.95  I think that's quite expensive for a little 30ml  travel bottle, I think if you like this wash you would be better off purchasing the full-size 250ml for $17.95.

Happy Skincare Pig-in-Mud Mineral Mask - two sachet samples - one for Normal, Oily & Combination Skin and one for Mature & Sensitive Skin - each sachet is enough for two applications.  These are very interesting samples, the sachets contain powder and you add equal parts water (they suggest starting with half a teaspoon), apply it with the handy application brush included, leave for up to 10 minutes and wash off. What's not to love about these samples, they have covered all skin types and you get an application brush to re-use.

John Plunkett - NS-5 Protective Hand Cream - 20g sample - helps prevent and protect your hands with a protective shield.  Concentrated so you only need a small amount, neutral smell and makes your hands feel really soft.  John Plunkett's NS-5 range of skincare is very good and worth a try if you are looking for natural, reasonably priced moisturisers.

Appelles - Rosemary Body Bar - this bar contains organic essential oils of Rosemary and Lemon Myrtle, smells gorgeous can't wait to try it.  RRP$4.95.

Acorelle - Eau De Parfum - Chypre Essential - sample vial - oriental chypre notes of Coriander, Geranium and Patchouli.  Didn't like this much when I first applied it to my skin, has a strong male aftershave aroma about it I think that is the Coriander, a volatile oil which fades.  Once it mellowed and warmed up, I couldn't stop smelling my wrist, simply gorgeous.  You can really smell the Patchouli one of my favourite scents with an added spicy afterthought.  Made with organic wheat alcohol and organic cornflower water and concentrated essential oils.  Available in 9 different fragrances.

Acorelle - Youth Protection Night Cream - sample 2ml - rehydrates and plumps skin.  I would have liked a bigger sample of this, 2ml is not enough to judge how a moisturiser will work on your face.

So that's it.  What do you think?  I am pretty happy with the samples, they are definitely products I can use and enjoy.  Nice to see a cosmetic product - Mascara and the perfume was a delightful addition.

  1. Looks like a great box this quarter. Very curious to know how the claytime mascara is.

  2. I like seeing what they have in the Eco boxes! Love the look of the mascara - let me know how you get on with that!

  3. Nice selection of products, even better when you can use them all. Love how scents differ once they settle in the skin, might have to check that one out. :)

  4. The perfume is lovely but it doesn't linger long, it is more like cologne than parfum xx

  5. I tried the mascara for the first time today, I don't know if it is old stock or just dry but it was very difficult to apply and even after three coats I wasn't happy. The silicon small brush is great gets right into the corners and so far it hasn't itched. Not sold on this one. Jac xx

  6. I don't know if the mascara is old stock or just a dry batch but it was difficult to apply, nice and black but after three coats I wasn't satisfied with the result.

  7. Dang it! That's disappointing!

  8. Yeah doesn't really do anything for your lashes at all unfortunately, no length or glossiness as they claim. Good points were it didn't itch or flake. It could just be a bad batch. xx

  9. This is one of the exciting
