July LHI


Came home from work to those boxes, yay! I love a good mail day - so expect a little haul post soon :P
Anyhoos, onto my LHI goodies.. this months box was a bit heavier, which made it seem much more promising!


PHTS'S Lait Hydro-Nettoyant and Soin Riche Protecteur
I really dislike sachets - especially when it comes to trying out skincare products! These will go into my sachet sample box that I will use up...eventually :P 

CALIFORNIA MANGO Mango and Jojoba Body Lotion
This is a great size, and smells delish, so I'm already sold on this product! It's also veryyy cheap (only $3.49 for this full size bottle!) 

 SWISSE Hand Cream with Vitamin F and Pomegranate
I've actually received this product before in BB, and didn't really like or hate it. It was a blah product - it didn't really make my hands more moisturised and only seemed hydrating immediately after application. I also found that it left a slightly greasy residue, which can be annoying for some. Scent wise, I'm not in love but it doesn't make me gag either so thats a plus I guess. This will go onto my desk at work because I bring all my mediocre products and leave them at work haha

NUDE BY NATURE Tinted Moisturiser
Not really impressed with this product - I've used it before and just wasn't a huge fan. I found that it left my skin oily after a while. Props to LHI for providing a full sized bottle though~


COLORSMASH Hair Shadow
I've never used a product like this before, and I hope it comes out on my black hair. Might try it for when the girls do a pink themed night haha

SCHWARZKOPF Extra Care Volume Powder
Not really sure if I will use this - My hair is usually quite boofy on its own, maybe I'll save it for those flat hair days to see if it really does work! 

 KNOTTIES Hair Ties
Believe it or not, I was actually most excited about this product. I've always wanted to try twistbands ever since I missed out on the BB that contained them, so I'm glad I can try what seems to be a dupe of that product. The Purple one also matches my gym shoes perfectly! :P

BONUS : HEALTH ESSENTIALS Maqui Berry Active
On the fence about this product - I'm not the biggest fan of taking supplements, especially ones that seem too good to be true!

So that was my LHI box for July. Not a bad box, especially compared to the previous months, however, I'm still not seeing the value, especially considering the price has increased to $19.95 a month. I think that the products from BB and LHI seem to be on par - however BB is a mere $15 per month. What do you think?

  1. Ohhh Amy I was most excited about the hair ties too haha! I have also tried the Nude by Nature moisturiser and wasn't overly impressed so I'm a bit ehhh about this box! I pretty much felt exactly the same as you haha!

  2. I received the exact same box (and a gold hair shadow). Let me know if the pink shadow comes up on your hair, the gold didn't seem to work on me. It think it was a good box considering the effort they put in to source f/s products, a few products I'm not sure about - the hair shadow and hair powder...

    1. I was really curious too and tried it last night - didn't turn up on my black hair very well at all :( it was very VERY chalky, and applied so patchily. I didn't even try locking it in with hair spray (who wants patchy pink hair?!) so it rubbed right off haha
