Bellabox: October 2012

Wow, another month rolls around, and another month of subscription boxes. This month marks Bellabox’s first birthday! I don’t know if I’d missed anything, but I don’t think they had announced that too much on Facebook or Twitter. But I can tell you this was a pretty good birthday box! This months theme was a “pretty in pink party” with $1 from each box sale going towards the Look Good…Feel Better foundation, a lovely gesture. Also with the pink theme, all the products followed a pink theme. Keep reading to see what I received this month.

Estee Lauder Resilience Lift Instant Action Lift Treatment
A skin firmer that you can apparently even use over make up! I’m not convinced about that, but will give it a go anyway!

Clinique Turnaround Concentrate Extra Radiance Renewer
An exfoliating serum, if it is as non irritating as it claims, I might really enjoy this!

Sally Hansen Insta-Dri Fast Dry Nail Colour in Petal Pusher
A lovely pale pink colour, a little sheer, but would be perfect for a classic French manicure.

Carmex Moisture Plus Ultra Hydrating Lip Balm- Sheer Pink Tint
I have only ever owned one carmex (which incedentally came from another Bellabox) and I quite enjoyed it. And this one comes with a pink tint! Excited to have a look at this. And the bonus, it isn’t even in stores yet!

DKNY Fresh Blosson Eau So Intense
I have owned the original Fresh Blossom, and used up both a 50mL and 100mL of it, that’s how much I love it! This is supposed to be a more intense version (hence the name). It smells identical, but if the lasting power on this version is better, I will be on that like a dog on a bone. Side note: my dogs LOVE bones and run in circles when they know they are getting one 😉

Klorane Shampoo with Oat Milk and Conditioning Cream with Pomegranate
Loved the dry shampoo from last month, and look forward to giving these a go. If I like them I will certainly buy them full size, at only $9.95 for 200mL and 150mL respectively. Bargain win!

Bourjois Smoky Pencil in 72 Dark Purple
Not pink, but not far off in the colour range 😉 I already own this from the August Bellabox (a little disappointing to double up), so this is likely to go to a friend. A lovely colour and I do like the consistency of it.

Pink Heart Chocolate from Chocolatier
Who can really go wrong with a choccie! And anything pink is likely to win me over 😉

Overall this is a really good value month, both in terms of the size of the items, along with the range of different items you get. My only disappointment as I mentioned was getting the Bourjois pencil that I have already received, but I still think this is an more than awesome box, and Bellabox, in my opinion, are cementing themselves as the leading beauty box subscription service. Happy birthday Bellabox, here’s to another year!

What did yo think of this month’s box?

    I’m getting a trial of the Carmex too. Hoping it arrives soon. I’m wondering what it’s like.

    I opened it up and it’s much brighter than I was expecting! Lovely colour on the lips too :)

  • MissRachii

    I didn’t think mine would arrive before the weekend, you’ll have something to look forward to now! :)

    We got the same box, I’m a little jealous of everyone else getting elf products – I don’t need shampoo :(

    This lokos like a great box! I should get mine soon!

  • MissRachii

    I don’t mind the shampoo- always looking for cheaper hair care options! lol I do wish I had gotten something from elf instead of the doubled up eyeliner though.

  • MissRachii

    Yay! I hope it gets to you really soon!!
