This was my second LHI Eco Box. The value for this box is crazy good. All of the products are full sized except the Dr Bronners which is 118ml and very reasonable trial size. This is a quick first impression and review of the products and overall thoughts below. This review is late due to processing on my end and the public Holiday, I apologise for this as the intent is for you to see what’s in these asap!
Full-size 100ml RRP $19
So excited to see this in the box this morning! Hand cream isn’t my thing but this one is perfectly on point for me. Ingredients here.
Scent – It genuinely smells like fresh orange juice.
Texture – creamy, light and soft
Packaging – sturdy matt plastic and strong wooden lid with a lastic insert. I would be comfortable keeping this in my handbag.
Application – a small squeeze is enough for your hands and nails. This is super light and absorbs quickly, not oily or any residue.
Results – Legits softer straight away, but will do a proper review later.
Overall – Love it on fist impressions. The scent is fresh and minimal, not girly , heavy or floral like most. Your hands are not left with any oily residue or weird layer. I am excited to keep trying this and will do a full review later. Hand creams are really not my thing, but this one is so nice.
118ml Full size 946ml RRP $28.95
I had actually been looking to try this in an effort to minimalize all products, so again, excited to see this in there! I would not have picked peppermint but it’s actually really nice and would suit cleaning.
Scent – Peppermint! Just like peppermint oil or a peppermint creme. Yummm.
Texture – It is more watery than I expected but I was not familiar with it at all.
Packaging – Sturdy clear plastic bottle with flip cap.
Application – So I actually added the included card for this here because there are so many! I used it quickly this morning in my shower with the coca scrub and it was delicious.
Results – I will get back to you on this with make up brushes.
Overall – Pretty excited to try this and see if it is as good as I am hoping! It’s not exactly beauty related in my opinion but it is something I personally am glad to receive and try.
3. Marsk Organic Eyeliner – Morning Coffee
Scent – A bit like plastic but this may be the lid.
Texture – Not as creamy as the previous by still smooth.
Packaging – Clean and simple standard wooden pencil.
Application – Well pigmented and creamy
Results – A deep brown that is both buildable and blendable.
Overall – Love this on first swatch and am looking forward to doing a full review!
Suede Splash Full size RRP $19.95
Scent – Very faint and light, not sure what it is exactly.
Texture – Smooth and creamy. Light feeling.
Packaging – Looks nice and is well textured. Plastic.
Application – Buildable with medium coverage.
Results – Well pigmented for a natural lipstick.
Overall – This is not a colour I would have ever brought but I actually don’t mind it in the swatch. I will do a full review on this later along with Lily Lake and the Lip Crayons.
Full size 200ml RRP $18.oo
I won’t be using this directly due to some of the ingredients so will only be giving my impressions.
Scent – Smells amazing, very fragrant and feminine
Texture – gel that turns to foam, pretty awesome!
Packaging – Similar to a dry shampoo size bottle and very sturdy
Application – Squeeze gel into hand and lather, foams on it’s own.
Overall – This smells wonderful and I am bummed that I will not be able to use it, but whoever does should enjoy it! The smell is beautiful and fresh.
Full size – 16 Wraps RRP $18
Texture – These are over prints, its hard to see but will review properly later.
Packaging – Comes ina little flip book and sealed insert as on right. Comes with mini file & cuticle stick.
Application –Results – These are handy, I will bring a full review later.
Overall – These are always good as they save time and often, though not in this case as they are decorative, can be an alternative to nail polish completely.
1. Lanolips Everyday Hand Balm
Full size 120ml RRP $22.95
I have received this before and gave it away as a do not generally use these. I gave it a shot this time after the Naobay. Ingredients here.
Scent – Very rich and feminine. Not unpleasant but heavy.
Texture – a heavy cream. somewhat oily.
Packaging – Plastic squeeze top tube.
Application – This is a heavier cream and the scent will last, if that’s your thing.
Overall – This is a good value product to receive, and runs with the apparent nail care and smelling pretty theme.
Full size = 60 Bags of tea RRP $46.50
This really depends on a few things, if you like tea, if you like this tea, if you can even drink it. It is a strange offering but if considered the bonus item, it is a pretty good one!
Personally, I do like this tea though in all honesty I would not buy it, so I am happy to receive this in the box.
This is a super quick review of the contents. I will bring a full review on some of these products over the next few days, along with some more Naobay, Pacifica and Inika items.
There are a lot site updates going on in the background and information to come regarding the different certificates and what they really mean when it comes to ingredients and company standing.
