December Bellabox


This will be my first December with Bellabox, and I was extremely excited to receive this in the post today! I've been hearing wonderful things, such as every subscriber will be receiving something extra special in their boxes! 



Their usual card was a little bit different this month, with a big and bright Christmas message, wishing us a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year! Very festive, a lovely touch!

But, I'm more excited to see what's actually inside the box, aren't you?



Mixed emotions, anyone?



John Frieda Frizz-Ease Secret Weapon Flawless Finishing Creme

I was actually excited to receive this! I switch hair care products around a lot, but the Frizz Ease series is one that I actually use, although I've only used the shampoo and conditioner, I'm very pleased with it so it will be exciting to try this out too!



Allegra Rhodes Hand and Nail Cream in Red Lychee

This is a tiny sample, as you can see, it's only 5ml. Although, in saying that, it smells absolutely amazing and I can't wait to try this out! I can see myself buying more of this, as long as it feels as good as it smells!


Compeed Blister Medium

Hmm, this was a bit of a strange one. Firstly, it's a little bit of an odd kind of sample to include, especially in a Christmas box. This would have been far better suited to their November box, which was "Soiree Season Staples" as in perfect for those of us who love wearing heels! Plus, it's only ONE sample. I'm not sure about the rest of you, but when I wear shoes that give me blisters, I usually get them on both feet! Either way though, I am definitely happy to try this out, especially now that it's summer, which means sandal weather!



EmerginC Protocell Cream & EmerginC Multi-Fruit Cleanser

This was probably the only thing I was slightly disappointed in. I have a few EmerginC samples lying about at home, and none of them have really caught my eye. The price for the full version is through the roof, and I doubt that one little sample will wow me enough to go out and buy the full version. In saying that, however, like I said I do have a lot of samples from them now, so I might be able to get a better result! Not a total loss.



Savoir Faire Limited Edition Kit in Pour Être Désirée (Summer)

This was the special present that each subscriber received in their box this month. There were two options, either Summer or Winter, and I'm yet to actually see the Winter one, so I am happy in receiving Summer. This beautiful kit includes six shadows, a blush, an eyeliner, a mascara and a lipgloss, all packed up in a beautiful box with a mirror. This baby is worth $110, so we're very lucky to have this included!



Inside the gorgeous kit.

I'm absolutely in love with it, and can't wait to start using it!

So, I think Bellabox really did treat us all to a very Merry Christmas. Although their other samples weren't as great as previous months, I do believe that the giant gift they've given us certainly makes up for that!

Have you received your December Bellabox yet? If so, what did you think?

    1. Oh no! Usually I don't get mine this quick, I usually have to wait a few days and get mine after NSW :( so hopefully yours comes quick!

  6. Mine is waiting at the boyfriends house. To be honest, I'm not that excited about the box anymore. I don't think that the palette is worth $110. It looks like one of those cheapie ones you get for $10 or $20 at Priceline/Target/Kmart. The box is worth it for our money and it's all about trying new things but I think I'm starting to get sample fatigue again :P I have so many and so little time to use them all :P

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Haha I definitely feel the same way about the samples, I have so many yet no time to use them! Sometimes I consider cancelling my subscriptions, but never end up doing it because I actually do use a lot of samples when I think about it!
      Although I'm pretty happy with the palette. It doesn't look like it's worth that much (but then, things that are worth that much rarely do look it) but I do like it! Maybe you'll like it better in the flesh? :P

  8. I was so tempted to get this box too with the promise of the expensive item, but I didnt - and guess im glad I didnt as Im a little too conservative with the eyeshadow colours I use, so I more than likely wouldnt have used the colours in the palette anyway!

    1. Oh true, it's probably not the best palette for those who prefer the natural look ;) hehe! More of a party palette!
