This point in the month would usually be where my reviews of subscription boxes would be posted, but this post is a little bit different. For a while, Australia longed for the subscription boxes both our US and UK counterparts had. Then, all of a sudden, BAM! We were inundated with choices. For a while I was subscribed to all of them, but now I am comfortable not being subscribed to any.
If you go back about a year and a half ago, so many companies wanted to give us sample boxes. The premise is awesome, and when executed correctly, is just that. But sadly, I feel like I have outgrown them a little. They start at $15 a month, which if you have the disposable income to do so, is not too much to outlay considering their value most of the time. And knowing you have a little box of goodies coming to you every month is pretty great.
This month’s Bellabox was themed ‘Delicious Beauty,’ and it certainly started off that way, there was a gorgeous smell coming from the box as soon as I opened it, but I’ll get to that in a minute. Here is what I received this month.
Welcome to another instalment of “What’s in my Bellabox?” See what I did there? Ok, enough with the bad jokes, lets get into what I received. And fittingly this arrived on Valentine’s Day, such is the theme of this box.
Gatineau Melagtogenine Future Plus Day and Night Cream- This says it is an anti ageing product, so I probably would have preferred one of the other options.
New year, and a new Bellabox to play with! This month was all about loving Australia and Australian products. Read on to see what was inside.
You Me and Everybody Cool It Aloe Vera Gel- Perfect timing! Even with sunscreen, I came back from the beach a little bit pink, this was great to soothe my skin. Next time I’ll use a full bottle of sunscreen…
For this month, the into will be very short and sweet, as this box is too good not to get straight into. The theme for this month’s box was a ‘Beauty-ful Christmas’ with items all for helping us get through the Christmas and new year season.
Allegra Rhodes Hand and Nail Cream- This cream (in red lychee) smells AMAZING. If it is effective, I will be considering purchasing this when I have used up my other hand creams.
John Frieda Frizz Ease Secret Weapon Flawless Finishing Creme- your ‘save my party hair from frizz’ friend. I have liked a few items from the Frizz Ease range, but haven’t tried this before.
EmerginC Fruit Cleanser and Phytocell Cream- I’m still searching for a holy grail cleanser so will give this a go, and to be honest, the name ‘fruit cleanser’ has sucked me in. I LOVE fruit.
Compeed- A blister protector. And if you are like me, who buys all pretty new shoes for Christmas parties and never wears them in, this will be handy in your purse. It may even come in handy wearing in my new work shoes!
