This month LHI has changed the design of their boxes to match the design on their website. It's pretty much the same size except a tiny bit taller and still features the magnetic closure. Since I wasn't expecting this box, I honestly had no idea what was inside which made it a bit more exciting.
To start off I received information cards from Princess Skincare and Smitten Cosmetics, as well as vouchers from Le Tan, Naked Wines Australia, and The Iconic. Don't think I would take advantage of any of those aside from maybe The Iconic.
Le Tan: Wash Off
40ml sample - 100ml RRP $14.99
Beauty boxes really need to STOP including fake tan since I have a total of four unused bottles now. Just because we're approaching summer doesn't mean you should hop on the fake tan bandwagon. Anyways, you can spray on this product whenever you feel like a tan, dries in 60 seconds and is water resistant. At the end of the day you can use warm water, a cloth and some scrubbing to remove.
Smitten Cosmetics: Whipped Tinted Mousse Moisturiser
? sample - 30ml RRP $25
I received this in the shade Cappuccino which seems to match me perfectly and there is a total of 6 shades available. The product is formulated with 50% moisturiser and 50% foundation, has a matte finish with SPF 15 and medium coverage. First impressions - I am quite liking this so far! Not sure how it really performs though.
Evo: Ritual Salvation Care Shampoo and Conditioner
50ml samples each - 300ml RRP $25
This is recommended for colour-treated, weak and brittle hair which sounds perfect for me! I have never tried any Evo products before so I hope this works. Bonus points for not being sachet samples and providing both the shampoo and conditioner together. Not too sure about the description on the conditioner bottle though, hmmm...
Inika: Mineral Eyeshadow in Lemon Cream
Full size - 1.2g RRP $25
Not particularly a fan of loose powder since they're a bit messy to use but this is a gorgeous shimmery, golden yellow. Colour payoff is excellent and is supposed to last all day, which I doubt unless you use a primer.
Paula's Choice: Oil Blotting Papers
50 sheets? - 100 sheets RRP $10.50
In my opinion there is nothing special about oil blotting papers; they're not exactly a new product so I don't think it should have been included. Plus I would not spend $10.50 on this when you can purchase an alternative at a cheaper price.
Princess Skincare: Hyaluronic Acid Mask
Full size - One mask RRP $27.50; Box of 8 - RRP $167.20
Just woaahhhh... one mask for $27.50?! It better be pretty damn good considering a box of 8 is $167.20. This is ideal for dehydrated skin and those with wrinkles as it helps to reduce the appearance of fine lines and maintain skin elasticity.
I feel like there has been a few types of products in common between LHI and Bellabox recently, such as fake tan, face masks, shampoo and conditioner, and bb cream / tinted moisturiser. I don't think there was anything exciting in October's LHI and the main highlight for me was the tinted moisturiser.
What did you think of this month's box? What did you receive?
Anyways I should stop procrastinating and start studying! Enjoy the rest of your week ladies :)
