I love getting mail, especially packages. It's a psychological thing -- the wondering, who's it from, what's it for and is it for me?
I hope it is!
Bet your bottom dollar you can relive that excitement month after month by signing up for a beauty box subscription. Thing is, you need to sift through the sand and find what works for you, because one size doesn't fit all. Case in point: a few Christmases ago Scott signed me up for GlossyBox, but they've since gone the way of the dinosaur and opted to jump ship for the States, pfft. All hope was not lost as Lust Have It stepped in and grabbed the baton from GlossyBox.
Then tragedy struck (insert dramatisation here), my nifty boxes were traded down for shiny rayon bags filled with "goodies" one might pinch from say, the inside of a magazine at their local doctor's office. Wrestle with this for a moment and while you're at it, try to pull that glue from your palms you ol' sticky fingers ;)
To say I was disappointed was an understatement. Subscription services have a a way of putting their best foot forward by enticing the consumer -- "we'll give you everything, promise!" Or, "hey look, we do business with all these brands!" Do you really? Really?
After a couple of months of receiving my Lust Have It subscription, I asked Scott to cancel it. And I never looked back.
Ironically, Lust Have It were kind enough to send me a Lust Have It Beauty Box for the month of June to trial. It's been over a year, so I figured why not?
Lust Have It have since traded in their chintzy bags for sturdy cardboard boxes, off to a good start. And the contents? A major improvement. While I've only heard of a couple of the brands, namely Nude by Nature and TIGI Bed Head -- I managed to not get offended by this month's offering. I just might tuck that tube of Seacret Body Lotion in my gym bag.
