November Bellabox


At last, my November Bellabox has arrived! I'm becoming a little bit frustrated with the way Bellabox is sending out their boxes. I'm seeing girls in New South Wales receiving theirs on Thursday. My tracking number says it's waiting to be shipped out in Sunshine (for those who don't know where that is, it's like 20 minutes from my house... I could catch a bus to pick it up from there, seriously) yet it doesn't get to me until Monday of the next week? Knowing that it's so close, yet so far, is so very, very frustrating! Also I feel like, why should I bother blogging about it since every other blogger has already! (I feel your pain, WA girls! Although probably not as much...) I just feel Bellabox should probably send out their packages so everyone gets them the same time. End rant now!



This month's theme was "Soiree Season Staples." Sometimes I find the theme a little unnecessary as a lot of things don't really have anything to do with the theme! So let's see this month...




All of the goodies together. I'm spying a few things I like...



Ocean Essence Nourishing Cherry Face Mask

This was a full sized product, and I'm very excited about it! First, I love masks. I just love them! Secondly, this smells amazing! I adore the smell, and can't get enough of it! I was thrilled to find that the whole box smelt like this! Yummy! 



Swisse Hand Cream

I heard most people saying that this is what they were excited about! At first, I had seriously no idea why this would be so exciting until I received it, and realised it was from Swisse! Now, I'm excited too! 



Organic Spa Face Exfoliant
I love exfoliants, so this will definitely get used. This is also organic, as the name suggests, so I'm very interested in seeing how this goes!



Bloom Glitter Liquid Eyeliner in Lucky Star

I was a bit cautious about getting this, as I'd received one similar in a previous box. But this is a different colour, and very pretty in my opinion, so I'll definitely have to try this out! Also, don't ask me what happened to the box, because I have no idea! It was like that when I got it!



Palmolive Body Butter Wash in Strawberry Smoother

I actually stalked my local Coles to suss these out before I received this. Both smelt absolutely amazing, and to be honest, I was hoping for the mango as I absolutely love mango! But I'm happy with either! If I love this, I'll probably go out and buy the full sized mango one as it just smelt heavenly!



4me Nail Polish Remover Pads

I've actually used remover pads before and don't find them too bad. They can be a bit messy as they are super wet, but if you're really in a pickle and need to remove your polish, these are pretty simple and easy to keep in your handbag! (Especially for those bosses or teachers who don't approve of nail polish in work or school!)



Bioderma Sebium H20 Cleansing Water

Eh. I've used Bioderma a while back and liked it at first, until it made me break out! I broke out pretty badly too, and so I've sworn off Bioderma! I think at some point in the future I'll probably give them another go, but for now I'm steering clear! 



$100 Wine Voucher

Eh again. I'm not a wine drinker at all, so this is completely wasted on me. It says you have to spend $100 to get the $100 so this might go to my mother in law as she loves wine.

So, all in all, what did I think of this month's box? Well, surprisingly the one month I say that the theme is useless, the items somewhat match the theme. Makes me seem a little bit silly, doesn't it?

But on a serious note, I really did like the box. Most of the items will get used, which is always a good thing, as I have a giant bag of samples that I have no idea what to do with! I think I may even have to use that mask tonight...

    1. You poor thing. It's absolutely ridiculous the way they work their posting system, surely they realise that a lot of their customers are bloggers and that we're having the boxes spoiled! :(
      Sometimes I even lose interest before they arrive!

      Thanks though lovely :) Hopefully yours comes soon!

  3. I got the eye cream, instead of the face mask. I would have loved to get the face mask instead. This is the first time I'm actually a little disappointed with BellaBox, all their other boxes have been fantastic, but this month is a bit 'meh'.

    1. Aw, I think I would have been disappointed with the eye cream too. I already have a good eye cream, but a face mask is something you can always use!
      The last few months have been really hard to top, so I kind of expected they wouldn't be as great... oh well, guess we'll see how they go!

  5. Hm... seems like an alright box but none of the monthly subscription services we get in Aussie impress me that much to be honest.
    It's nice to see a Bloom product and full-sized things too :)

    Can't wait to see a hopefully amazing Christmas box!

    1. So true, when you compare it to the ones overseas, ours look like crap! It is nice to see Bloom included though and a few full sizers :)
      I hope the Christmas box will be awesome!

    1. Haha I know right!? I didn't open it all up properly when I first got it, maybe somehow my puppy got in there and chewed the one thing? LOL seems unlikely as it wasn't all ripped open but who knows!
      I liked this month too!

  8. Mine has been sitting at my boyfriends house for 2 days now. I'm dying to go get it tomorrow :) I already know what I'm getting though as I had a peek on the bellabox website (my account) before they started shipping them. I think mine's heaps different from yours as I have Dr LeWinns and the B by bloom cheek tint instead of the eyeliner.

    1. Oh what a tease! I'd be dying right now lol! I wish I had gotten the cheek tint to be honest, as I already have a glitter liner from them and it would have been nice to try something new, but I'm not complaining!

  9. So jealous of your hand cream! I work in healthcare and I wash my hands about a million times a day...hand creams are one of my staples!
