March Bellabox


The last few months of Bellabox have been shaky to put it lightly, and I've been promising myself every month that I'm going to unsubscribe! I just keep forgetting. Needless to say, this month I did not have high hopes...


This month's theme was "Delicious Beauty" which could mean absolutely anything, as majority of the time the themes mean next to nothing with Bellabox.


The contents of this month's box. 


DB Australia Lipliner in Nude

I'm actually pleased with this, as I'm always happy to receive a full sized product, especially makeup. DB is a fairly good brand, and although it's cheap, I'm not a makeup snob so this will definitely get used!


Yes To Carrots C Me Shine Lip Gloss in "Playful Nude"

I was a bit disappointed that I didn't receive the Clinique lipstick in place of this. Although I don't have a problem with receiving a Yes To Carrots product, I feel they are not really in the same league. Yes To Carrots can be purchased from Priceline, where as Clinique is something you pick up from Myer. Get what I'm saying?


Swisse Recover Bar

This is a nice touch however will not be used by me. I don't do any intense workouts, I much prefer softer workouts like yoga, so this wouldn't be too helpful for me. This will be gifted to my boyfriend, who does a lot more intense exercise, so hopefully he'll get good use out of it! I don't know how good it would do me after a soft workout when I wouldn't drink as much water.


Olive Shower Gel

I actually heard about this brand recently, and it sounded very interesting! Oil, when used correctly, can be fantastic for the skin. A shower gel is always welcome in my collection, so I'll be interested to see how this one goes!


Ocean Essence Body Milk

I had received an Ocean Essence face mask in a previous box, and was actually very impressed. I'm interested to see how this goes, and although the sample size is small for something that is supposed to cover your entire body, I'm happy it was not in a sachet!


Guerlain Paris La Petite Robe Noire EDT sample

I'm actually really happy to get this as a sample, as I know this is one of the new lovely scents that have been released. It smells really lovely, so this will definitely be used.

Overall, I'm not unhappy with this month's box. Granted, it's not amazing and did not have me saying "wow" as I've seen a few other boxes that had goodies I wish I had received, but all in all I feel I didn't get the worst box available either, for once. I'm still considering unsubscribing, although I'm willing to give them another month... again.

Have you received this month's Bellabox? If so, what did you think?

  1. I was quite happy with what I received this month, I am not really into lipstick so I didn't care if I got the Clinique, I received the Gloss too.

    1. I'm still a bit peeved that they aren't really the same, pricing wise, but as long as you're happy with the box you get, that's the main thing! I was happy :)

  2. I'm glad I unsubscribed last month. This box - although better than past boxes - isn't amazing, and I don't feel like I missed out on anything by not being subscribed to it, if you get me?

    1. Yep I know exactly what you mean. I keep meaning to unsub but always feel guilty... I think I'm really going to have to though!

  3. To be quite frank, I'm actually very happy that I have unsubscribed to BellaBox last month. This month's box is so-so, nothing truly jumps out at me. However, it's definitely not as bad as other BB boxes in the past! x

    1. Yep I definitely agree. They've done better although they haven't made it just yet!

    2. I agree too! Although I find it quite disgusting that the differences in prices of products in boxes are so significant! A clinique lipstick vs a Yes To Carrots lip gloss?! They're in different leagues!!

      Delete
    3. It's a big jump, price wise! I'm not hating on the Yes To Carrots gloss but it's nowhere near the same! :(

  4. I think you've got some great brands in your box. Apparently that scent is to die for!

  5. I like how they included an eyeliner (a makeup product YAY) but still not too impresed. :/

    1. Mine was actually a lipliner, so a little less yay :P haha!
      But yes, definitely not overly impressed!

  8. I can't say that I feel I am missing out now that I have unsubscribed. I never seemed to receive any of the "better samples" like you felt about the lipstick this month :(

    1. Yep, totally agree with you here. I even changed my beauty profile last month in hopes to change what I got, but to no avail! :(

  9. This hasn't been a very impressive box but the couple of full sized items do make it okay :) I totally agree with you about the Yes to Carrots and Clinique not being in the same league- it's not very fair! You could always have the protein bar as a snack if needed but fair enough that you don't normally eat that sort of thing :)

    1. Yeah it's a bit silly! I know the protein bar is meant to be consumed with a lot of water! I could try it but eh :P

  10. Lol Yes to Carrots and Clinique are not comparable. Totally get what you're saying :p
