Spring Bellobox


A few days ago, after seeing his jealousy as I ripped open my own Bellabox, I decided it was time to order him the Bellobox - the man version of the Bellabox!

Beauty isn't just for us ladies, and he is often stealing all my beauty products for himself. (In saying that, we're talking body wash or moisturiser - not mascara and lipstick!) So I thought, why not surprise him and get him a beauty box of his own! He was excited (probably just happy to get something in the post for once!) and he was pretty happy with everything he got! 



All of the goodies together. The Bellobox is a quarterly box worth $30, so when he opened it all up and I saw this, I was impressed! He definitely got my moneys worth!

Let's take a closer look...



EmerginC Protocell Cream and Multi-Fruit Cleanser samples

I myself have a few EmerginC samples myself, and have yet to use them! I am jealous that he received the multi-fruit cleanser, as this is definitely something I would have used! He was mildly interested, so I might be able to steal them!




Uspa Supernatural Men's Bambusa Facial Scrub 

My boyfriend was more interested in the container than the contents, as he thought it was an innovative design. I'll be interested to see what he thinks!




Uspa Supernatural Men's Sandalwood Cleanser

My boyfriend thought that this was exactly the same as the first Uspa product! He doesn't know the difference between a cleanser and a scrub - yet - but liked the sound of the Sandalwood!




American Crew Precision Shave Gel

He thought this was interesting and is giving this a go next time he shaves! Not sure he'll buy this for himself yet!




Eau Thermale Avene Soothing Moisture Mask

I may have to steal this from him! The amount of Avene products I get, I've never had a mask and that's all I've ever wanted! I love masks, and I am really jealous! Although he wants to use it, so I think I'll let him keep it! If I'm feeling generous!




Bioderma Sebium AKN
I received this in my last box, so I'm not fussed that he got this. I have a full sized one too, that I wasn't too pleased with as it broke me out, so if it does wonders for him then it won't go to waste! It worked fine for a while but then suddenly broke me out, so I'm not sure what happened!




Lancome Men Age Fight Anti-Age Perfecting Fluid
He questioned why he was receiving anti-aging products in the box. I explained that it is never, ever too early to start and he seemed to understand. I think I was a bit more interested in this than he was, though!




Bioderma Sebium H20

He had no idea what this was, as it's in French, but I filled him in! I hope he likes this, as like the AKN, I have a full sized product that is just sitting there now as my skin decided it no longer liked it!  




Nivea For Men Skin Energy Face Wash

I can't wait for him to try this! My boyfriend's face gets a bit oily which leads to blackheads and other nasties, so I really hope this does him good!




Nivea For Men Skin Energy Moisturiser

He loves his moisturiser - like me - so I wonder how this one will go down! He's very fussy, so I wonder how it will go!




Carmex Lip Balm

He loved this! His lips are always dry, so this will do him a world of good! He tried to open this straight away before I got a chance to take photos, so he was definitely keen to try it out!




Z Zegna Eau De Toilette

He did not like this, sadly. I liked the scent, and it's probably something I'd wear myself - which probably tells you why he doesn't like it! He felt it was too feminine for him, which I suppose I agree.




Faulding Men's Multi Energy Formula

This was probably his favourite thing out of the bunch! He loved that it was great value, and went to take one straight away until I read the instructions which suggest taking one with a meal! He's pretty excited about this one! 




Sranrom Body Wash in Awakening Vitality

I received the same one in my Bellabox, only a different scent. He was intrigued with this, and said he'll use it soon!

So, overall, I liked the Bellobox! But did the boyfriend like it?

Bottom line, yes, he did! He's going to continue with the subscription, as he felt it was really great value and also he loves opening up a package every now and then!

Would you consider getting your other half the Bellobox? Do you think he would appreciate it, or enjoy anything that was included?

  1. Not sure what my other half would think of this...but I might give it a go sometime and see what he thinks. :P

    He isn't big on maintenance lol and brags about how quickly he can get ready. Sad fact is, he has better skin than I do, how unfair is that!

    I think this had great value!

    1. Oh my man is the same, he thinks it's awesome that it takes him only five minutes! His skin is not as good as mine though and so I think after seeing me start taking care of mine, he realises maybe it's time for him to do the same :P
      But soooo unfair yours has better skin than you! Why is the universe so cruel!

  2. I like the fact that this "man box" has got a good selection of different products in it! I know men's stuff can be quite same-y as there isn't a huge range of different types of products around for men! I'm really impressed with this and it looks like you got a lot of products for your money too!

  3. Glad he liked it! I would definitely be stealing the carmex off him though - my lips are always terrible! You'll probably notice all your moisturisers start lasting you twice as long :P x

    1. Haha true, he'll have his own to use now! I have a Carmex of my own that he tried to steal from me earlier, so I was so happy it included one so now he has his own :P

  4. The truth is sometimes I use my husband's shampoo etc when I run out of mine or I need a change!
