April Bellabox


I know I've been saying that I'm going to unsubscribe from Bellabox for months now, but I keep forgetting and so I keep being sent boxes! I feel really terrible being negative about Bellabox, as it was one of my favourites to start off with, and I know that all the people who put the box together to work really hard, so I feel bad for not giving them a go!

This month's box was all about Innovative Beauty, which I found fairly intriguing. I think they also decided to go with this theme as their little card now has codes that you can message to Bellabox, and they link you with where to buy the full sized product! Fairly handy!


A quick snap of all the "innovative" beauty products together... 


Sally Hansen Magentic Nail Color in Golden Conduct

I suppose this is considered innovative! I actually have one or two of these already in different colours, so I'm pretty happy I didn't get the same colour as one I already have! I really like this colour as well, as I think it'll be perfect for winter! (And hey, you don't have to use the magnet feature if you don't want!)


Indio Skin Tonic Active Toner

I'm always fairly pleased with a sample size is 30ml, as it's such a generous sample size to give! I've never heard of this brand before, but I'm definitely willing to give it a go.


Cedel Dry Conditioner

I've actually got another can of this floating about somewhere in my bathroom, but I've never actually used it! With fairly oily hair already, dry shampoo certainly doesn't make my hair too dry, so the need for dry conditioner is a little bit wasted on me. I will however give this a go, as I think it's a great idea (especially for those ladies - and guys - with dryer hair!) and see how it goes. I know this goes on in a kind of mousse form, so it can't be all bad!


 Ayurda Moisturiser

This came with a little sachet and a little tub. (I actually think they were different, but I didn't get a chance to get a look before heading off to work - sorry! I'll update when I know if it's different or not!) Apprantly this is an all natural moisturiser to help increase blood circulation, in order to achieve better skin tone. Almond and Saffron sounds as though it will smell delightful!


Lash Card

According to Bellabox, Lash Card is exclusive to this box for the time being, as it's brand new to Australia! I was a bit confused about what this actually is until I read the card. This is basically a card that makes your mascara work overtime, and helps prevent clumping. I'll be interested to see if it makes much of a difference.


ProPlenish Marine Collagen Sachets

I did have a picture of the sleek silver sachets, but somehow my camera deleted it! Apparantly this is a mix of science and Japanese tradition, mix a sachet into some water to help achieve better skin, nails and hair. I'm really interested to see how this will taste, and what sort of effects it will have!


Cellilux Glacial Mineral Gel

This is actually a face mask, and according to the card, seems to be packed with all sorts of amazing scientific technology to help draw out impurities and bacteria from the skin. So it's basically like a detox patch but for your face! Can't wait to give this a go!

I know I'm never overly impressed with Bellabox, but I have to say I'm not unimpressed with this month's box. Nothing really stood out to me and made me think "wow, so happy to get this!" but at the same time I'm not not wanting to try everything in the box, if that makes sense. I think Bellabox have started making a little bit more effort, which is good to see. 

Did you get your Bellabox this month? If so, what did you think? What did you think of this month's theme? You can sign up to Bellabox here.

  1. I received pretty much the same as you but I got the Indio Salt Scrub for face and I love it!!

    The Collagen is made from fish scales, I read up about it. I'm pretty squeamish when it comes to fish, don't eat them lol....

    1. Ohh I was hoping for the scrub... makes it even worse knowing that it's good :P haha!
      Ohhhhhh that is kind of weird, hmmm!

      Delete
  2. Hm... an overall average box I reckon.
    I've seen that lash card in the IPSY bag and it's pretty handy for those who seem to always get mascara on their upper eyelid.

    That nail polish looks pretty cool too.

    1. Agreed, nothing wowed me but it's not bad either.
      I'm not sure how often I'd get use out of the Lash Card, I think I'd save it for a special occasion just to be safe :P

  3. I felt the same with my box. Although I only received 1 full size item - the nail polish, rest were all sample, a little underwhelming.

    1. It was, wasn't it? Not great, but not really bad either. Maybe they'll do better next month

  4. I got the same box as you and I feel the same way about the box. It's not bad but it's not great. I had to laugh when you said you keep meaning to cancel but keep getting boxes. I'm the same! I NEED TO CANCEL!!!!

    1. Haha well I feel better knowing I'm not the only one! Lol! I can't see them getting amazing overnight sadly, so I think I have to bite the bullet and not forget to cancel this time :P

  5. Your Bellabox's always look amazing. I've just received my second ever Birchbox and I only really like one item :(

  6. Sample boxes has intrigued me for the longest time ever but I'm trying to save some $$$ and only but items I really need and like.

    The Sally Hansen nail polish is the only thing that got me rather interested. Just as how Lily put it, underwhelming box.

  7. ive never had a subscription to a beauty box because I can never decide what one I want to get! I think they should have personalized ones so you tell them your skin type and hair colour and eye colour so they don't send you crap that you won't use. I guess it would take too long for them to do:(
