October Bellabox



BB1

It's that time of the month again; and surprisingly Bellabox was my first subscription box to arrive! This month marks Bellabox's 2 year anniversary - that's right, they've been around two whole years! 

BB2

To celebrate their 2nd birthday, Bellabox has teamed up with the fashionistas from TheyAllHateUs. After last month's crazy amazing box, (read about it here) I wasn't expecting too much to be honest.

I also noticed that the box was actually missing. While most people are alright with this, it has actually annoyed me. When I received my box, it was all open at the sides (due to shipping) and there was a possibility that the products may have fallen out, as they were only wrapped in bubble wrap. Please bring back the box, Bellabox, or at least some more secure packaging!

The goodies from this month's box.



BB5

 Beyonce Heat Fragrance

Firstly, the packaging is just adorable. At first I thought this was candy, but was even more excited when I discovered it was Beyonce's fragrance, Heat. I've been wanting to try Heat for a long time now, so this is a great excuse to hopefully fall in love with a new fragrance!

BB6

Alfaparf Semi Di Lino Reconstruction Shampoo

I love getting shampoo and conditioner samples, especially in bottles, so this is always appreciated. This is supposed to take your hair back to it's original softness. I find that my hair is already fairly soft, so we'll see how this works!

BB7

Alfaparf Semi Di Lino Reconstruction Reparative Mask

Again, happy to receive something for my hair that isn't in a sachet, but my hair isn't damaged so not sure how well this will work for me! I'll definitely give it ago, but I hope this can be used in place of a conditioner as one was not included. 

BB8

Vaseline Ultimate 10 Anti-Aging Lotion

I'm a big fan of the Vaseline lotions in general, so I can't wait to try this one out! It's a really handy size too, so it'll fit in my smaller handbags for when I go out!

BB9

Nivea Daily Essentials Light Moisturising Day Cream

This is such a tiny little tube, but it's oh so cute. I love Nivea, so new products are always exciting! This includes SPF15 which is perfect for the upcoming summer months!

BB10

L'Oreal Paris Shine Caresse in Bonnie

I'm actually super excited to receive this, as I've never tried these before! I know, bad blogger! I'm not sure if this is full sized of not, as it seems a little bit small from what I remember in store, but I don't own any myself to compare! Not that I'm bothered - it is my colour of choice, definitely the one I would have purchased myself, so I'm really happy with this!

BB4

Bonus Product - L'Oreal Paris Nutri Lift Gold Serum Foundation in Sand

Not sure why this is considered a bonus, as it's a colour I definitely can't wear myself. I suppose it will be enough to test out how the product sits on my skin, but I won't be able to wear it out of the house as it's far too dark for me! Oh well, never mind!

-- 

Overall, I think this was a pretty decent box. For a birthday box, I was expecting a little more than a sachet as their bonus product, but I'm not too concerned really. I'm pretty happy with everything that was included, and although it wasn't as amazing as last month, it was not disappointing. 

Bellabox costs $15 a month, and you can sign up here.

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

  3. My lip colour looks just a shade lighter than yours, it's Princess in case you're wondering :) I'm loving it. I thought it was a pretty good box too... looking forward to seeing your future reviews as I've had to un-sub for a while :( I'll be back one day though :)

  4. I received my first Bellabox earlier this week, and I was impressed that it had some pretty cool things. I wish I got the Loreal lip product though (I got Nail polish instead).

  8. It looks like everyone received some pretty different items this month. They amped it up so much with their birthday I was expecting a little more, but it was still decent. I got a cleansing balm and nail polishes.

    1. I definitely agree, I think they could have done a lot more with a birthday box! I really don't like how crazy different the boxes are, especially as some are super amazing while the other box seems like mostly reject products :(

  9. The only thing I got which was the same as yours was Heat. The rest was totally different. Mine got sent on the second run and I believe they ran out of a lot of stuff. Hopefully next months box is better!

    1. I know how you feel, I think that's what they do. It's a real shame, I wish they could be more like Her Fashion Box, who sends out pretty much all the same stuff, just a few small differences in colours etc. It makes things a lot more fair! xx
