Bellabox February 2013

I received my Bellabox on Monday this week and whilst it contained some good products I can't say it was anything too exciting for me.

It was a Valentines themed box (does anyone else think this is kinda pointless since we were never going to receive this box before Valentines Day).  Here's what I got:

Nuxe Huile Prodigieuse - a 10ml sample of oil that can be used on face, hair and body.  As far as packaging goes it's a beautiful sample housed in a glass bottle.  So much fancier than plastic right haha!  I'll definitely be trying this out.

Sally Hansen Nail Polish in Mermaid Tale.  A full size nail polish which colour is just how you would imagine a mermaid's tail.  It does look lovely but I'm not much of a bright coloured nail person so I can't really imagine using this.

John Frieda Frizz-Ease Dream Curls Curl Perfecting Spray - a 30ml sample.  I have the full sized version of this product and when I leave my wavy hair to dry naturally I spray some of this in damp hair and scrunch it up a bit to create frizz free curls.  This will be handy for next time I travel.

Batiste Dry Shampoo 50ml - I use this product nearly every day and have already received this exact product in a previous beauty box.  This one will join it in waiting for next time I travel.

U Skin solutions Clarifying Cleansing Gel.  This tiny little sample is in a plastic cube with a sticker on top.  It looks so budget and I wonder if I'll even be able to get a finger in there to scoop it out.

Banana Boat Sport SPF30+ - 15ml - A sunblock sample in a sachet is pretty annoying - you really have to use it all in one go.  I'll probably put this in my car for emergency's.  It's sweat resistant and water resistant so in my mind I'm picturing it as thick and I'd only wear it if i was going swimming in the ocean.

Overall the box was okay but nothing really wowed me.  I am considering unsubscribing from the beauty boxes as I'm building up a rather large collection of samples that I'm just not using.  I probably won't though for fear of missing out on something awesome, I'm a sucker I know lol.

The bellabox costs $14.95 per month and you can sign up here


  1. I know what you mean about unsubscribing, I know the minute I do they will have a bumper box lol....

    I wish I had got the colour nail polish you did even though I love the gold.

    Try painting your nails black or dark purple and then put on a layer of Mermaid, the effect is gorgeous, I think it looks like black opal :o)

    If you don't like it on your fingernails go wild on your toes, I do.

    1. You're so right Jac, I'll give it a whirl on my toes. I have no trouble being adventerous with my makeup but I never do on my nails haha

  2. I'm only just about to jump on the subscription bandwagon - took me ages to force myself to "pay" for "samples". Let's see how I like it :)
