April Bellabox



I was pleased to find my Bellabox had also arrived today along with the final Glossybox! Two boxes in one day? How wonderful!

Unfortunately for me, I received this box so much later than other girls, so I already knew what was in it! Boo!
At least there were no nasty surprises!


This months box was all about being "fashion forward" with the lead up to Mercedes Benz Fashion Week. So, fashion forward, that's a bold statement to make! I was very excited to find what would be in my box, as I'd seen a few variations that left some unhappy customers!


All in all, my box looked fairly good when I opened it! The box is so tiny compared to the Glossybox, so I feel a bit underwhelmed, knowing there probably won't be any good full sized products. But I was actually wrong, here!





OP Therapy Summer Glow - Sea Salt Scrub in Pineapple and Papaya


Probably something I will use more often than the rest of the items in the box. I'm a big fan of scrubs, especially sea salt scrubs, and with "pineapple and papaya" what's not to love? It seems like a perfect mix. I would have loved a bigger tube and will probably buy more, since I can't say no to scrubs!




Benefit Hello Flawless Oxygen Wow Foundation


This I was excited about. I've never actually tried anything from Benefit, which is a horrible fact, I know! I've been meaning to, so I'll be looking forward to road testing this little beauty! I heard of a few people not actually getting this in their box, and getting something different. Needless to say, I would have been highly disappointed if I did not receive it!




Hollywood Feet Heel Cushions


I'm actually pretty happy with receiving these. I've heard a lot of bloggers were unhappy with this, and I can understand as it's not really "beauty" per say, more fashion. But I'm happy to try these out as I've always wanted to, but I've been too scared to waste my money! Now at least I'll know if they're worth it.





Comvita Brightening Range

This came with three samples; Brightening Moisturiser, Brightening Facial Exfoliant and Brightening Facial Serum. I'm really looking forward to the facial serum, but I'm sure the other products are lovely too. Not sure how much it'll do with only one or two applications, however.




pureDKNY Verbena

I'm really looking forward to trying this, silly me didn't even give it a sniff before heading off to work! I've heard amazing things, and knowing me, if I love it I'll head off and buy it straight away!





Ulta3 Nail Polish in Cocoa

Last but not least, the Ulta3 polish. I'm already a huge fan of Ulta3 as my local chemist and my local supermarket sell them in a big box. Probably not a colour I would have picked myself, but I'm always happy to get free polish!


I had a horrible incident with an Ulta3 polish, sadly, where I purchased a bottle from my supermarket, took it home to find it completely empty! There were no signs of leakage whatsoever. I contacted Heat Group (the company that handles Ulta3) who promptly (and I'm talking within a few hours) contacted me back and offered to send me out a replacement. So even though I had a horrible experience, I was really pleased by their customer service. They could have simply just told me to take it back to the store for a refund and leave it at that, but they went that extra step. So I'm a bigger fan of them now!


Overall, this Bellabox left me smiling! I was really pleased to get these products to try, as after all, that's what the boxes are for! We're not supposed to get everything we've ever wanted in them. (Although that would be an amazing box!) Don't be surprised if you see a review on that amazing smelling sea scrub any day now, as I'm sure I'll be using it religiously!

So what did you all think of Bellabox this month? Have you tried any of these products, if so what did you think?

  2. this looks like a pretty good set of things actually! I cancelled my subscription to Glossybox but Bellabox sounds soo tempting from your review...the Benefit foundation looks really useful and I totally agree, I would LOVE to receive those gel heel cushions! they are actually very handy, because (for me at least) of all the blistering the heels get from shoes with hard, non-leather material.

    1. Yay someone else who actually liked the gel heel cushions haha! I love wearing heels but steer away from them most of the time because of the blisters and pain, so hopefully this will help :)
