September Bellabox

BB1

The usual Bellabox box was a little different this month - instead was wrapped up securely in a big post package! I was intrigued - but I already knew I had a full sized magazine coming to me so I assumed that would be all! 

BB2

This month's box... or er, package, was all about Spring Party Essentials. Usually I don't think too much of these themes, but this month's was pretty darn accurate, so kudos to Bellabox for that! (I also adore the design of the little cardboard wrap around that held the products together!)



 

BB3

All the goodies together. Yup, they're not fitting in my usual Bellabox box!

BB4
Cleo Magazine - October Issue

Personally I'm not much of a magazine reader myself, but every now and then I take a quick read! Mostly what puts me off is all the articles on sex and such! But the October issue of Cleo had the gorgeous Emma Watson on the front - and I can't say no to Emma!

BB5

Glam Eyes by Manicure - Kelly Lashes

Since becoming a beauty blogger, I've really branched out and I enjoy wearing lashes now! I'm always on the hunt for them, and so when I saw the Kelly Lashes included, I was extremely happy! I love Glam Eyes lashes, and these ones seem very wearable (yet sexy) at the same time!

BB6
ASAP Pure Mineral Lip Pencil in Three

I find that my makeup collection is severely lacking in lip pencils. I have plenty of eye pencils, but hardly any lip pencils. This pink lip pencil is absolutely perfect - I can't wait to use it! It's so soft and just glides on the lips! I hadn't heard much on ASAP before, but now I'm interested in hearing more!

BB7

Schick Hydro Silk Razor

This is my absolute favourite razor at the moment! I already have a back-up, and this will be my second back up. (Make that first since this morning - I managed to snap my other one in half! Lucky I have this one!) You can read my full review on this product here.

BB8

Elegant Touch Envy Wraps in Tie Dye

I love nail wraps - absolutely love them! I'm terrible at nail art, I just don't have the patience for it! But I do have the patience for applying nail wraps, so I'm thrilled to receive these! I was a bit hesitant, as I had seen a few of the other designs out there that weren't really my taste, but I'm so excited to receive a gorgeous summery design!

BB9
Montagne Jeunesse Dead Sea Mud Pac in Kelp & Seaweed

I seem to have a lot of masks to try of late, but I'm happy to get more! Nothing like a nice, cold mud mask to cool you down in summer, so I'll be keeping this handy for when the weather gets a bit warmer.

BB10

Footcare Gel Ball of Foot Cushions - 2 Pairs

Where were you two weeks ago when I was clomping around Sydney in heels?! I'm trying to venture into wearing heels a little more often, as I'm so short I feel like I want the extra height - but the reason I steer away from heels is because of the pain! Hopefully these will help make the transition a little easier!

BB11

Garnier Ambre Solaire Natural Bronzer in Light

I actually purchased something similar a little while ago, as I noticed how ridiculously white my legs were in comparison to the rest of my body! (Hey, a Melbourne winter is a long winter!) I'm not really a tanner, but this one says it's light and it's a natural bronzer, so it sounds more user friendly that the tanners I've experienced in the past!

BB12

Coupon!

We also received a coupon for 25% off the extra razors for the Schick Hydro Silk Razor - which is perfect for me as this is my go to razor! 

-- 

Overall, I was pretty happy with this month's Bellabox. Although I've sometimes been unimpressed with them in the past, I try to remember that there are people working really hard to make these boxes awesome (and get them out in time) so if they're not always mind-blowing, I'm inclined to forgive them - especially when they make a big effort and produce a box like this!

  5. How can anyone fault a sample box like that! There's only the ONE sample this month! I'm really impressed with BB {but unfortunately I'm sure a box like this is bound to cause a lot of let down next month :P}.. I admit to liking your nail wraps better than mine, but seriously, I love this month! :)

    1. I think the problem with subscription boxes is they are soooo hit and miss! This month is great, but what's next month going to be like? Although I love being subbed to them all because it's like a surprise in the mail! xx
