May Bellabox



Yay, I received my May Bellabox! This month's theme was "Pamper Yourself, Pamper Your Mum." My answer to that? No! She gets none of my goodies! It does help that she lives in another state altogether, so it's a bit difficult to just hand her over products now.

Yet again this month, I ripped open the box to delve into the wonderful products I knew I would receive this month! So, what did I get...



Wow, sorry about this photo, it's so much darker than it showed up on my camera!

Avene Eau Thermale Avene Ystheal Emulsion Moisturiser

Avene Eau Thermale Eluage Eye Contour Cream

Sebastian Professional Range Shampoo, Conditioner, Treatment samples

Bobbi Brown Mini Mascara
A'kin Rose & Geranium Pure Creamy Cleanser & Toner In One
Silk Oil of Morocco Lip Gloss in Morocco Ruby

So, let's go through one by one...



A'Kin Rose & Geranium Pure Creamy Cleanser & Toner In One
Wow, so excited about this one! I love A'kin as their products are just gorgeous! As you can see here, this has shea butter and vitamin B5 in this and is suitable for all skin types, what more could you want? Full size will set you back $29.95 for 225ml, which is a fairly good price for such a lovely brand, keeping in mind this is a cleanser AND toner all in one! Makes your beauty regime just that little easier!
Needless to say I am really excited to give this a go!



Bobbi Brown Mini Mascara
I was very, very happy to get this. I've never, ever in my life tried anything from Bobbi Brown (I know, it's a sin!) so I was really happy! My first Bobbi Brown product! And for it to be mascara, I was especially pleased! This will be great to throw in my mini handbags when I go shopping (full sized products are just too big to fit in those little bags!) so it'll be perfect for touch-ups! Very, very happy!



Silk Oil of Morocco Lip Gloss in Morocco Ruby
Another great product! Firstly, I LOVE the colour! Morocco Ruby, what a gorgeous name, and the colour just looks beautiful when worn. Not too bright, but bright enough to make a statement! I love that this is Morocco Oil, and will definitely be looking out for more of these products in the future! Morocco Oil is fantastic for my hair so I can't imagine how beautiful my lips will be after using this!



Avene Eau Thermale Avene Ystheal Emulsion Moisturiser
Avene Eau Thermale Eluage Eye Contour Cream
I'm in love with this brand already so I was happy to get two samples from the same brand! I find the brand so exotic and special, since it's all in French, it makes me feel extra special by using something with barely any English on it! Somehow more sophisticated! If you know what I mean...
Anyway! Anti-aging moisturiser, and eye contour cream. Hmm. Maybe these were meant for mum? (That was mean, sorry mum!) It's never too early to start with the anti-aging so I might enjoy that, and the eye contour cream I will definitely be trying. Working night shift, I'm probably already getting some wrinkles about my eyes, so this may help!


Sebastian Professional Range Shampoo, Conditioner, Treatment samples
Oh, how exciting! I always love trying new products, I'd never heard of this brand before (although I did notice a few items at Priceline by this brand today) and it looks interesting! I like how they've also given a sample of the treatment too.
I love what Bellabox said about this on their card. "...we know samples sometimes scare you off..." I love that they actually register that little samples like this aren't always very helpful to us ladies in picking products that will work over time. But with shampoo I'm happy to try it once, because usually I will know straight away if it's good or not, so I'm happy with that! Can't wait to give this a go!

So overall, I'm very, very pleased with this box! Bellabox has certainly hit the mark this month, and they already have me craving for next month's box! I can't wait to give every single thing in this box a try this month, and I'm happy that nothing had me disappointed! Great box, Bellabox!

So have you received your Bellabox yet? If so what did you think?
