Bellabox April 2013

I received my Bellabox yesterday morning which was a surprise as I don't usually get parcels on a Saturday, but hey no complaining here.  Just like last month I seem to be getting these earlier in the month now which is good.

Onto the goods, here's what I got this month:

Bellabox April 2013

The theme this month is Innovative Beauty and the box contained 6 items and all of them were sample size (no full size products this month)

1.  Cedel Dry Conditioner 30g.  Apparently this can be used in conjunction with Dry Shampoo and works on a similar basis except it hydrates the hair as opposed to actually cleaning hair.  I can't say I get it but I'm a huge fan of dry shampoo so I'll give it a go.
2. Indio Facial Scrub.  Retails for $56 for 50ml so I'd be expecting pretty good results for a price like that.  The sample size is 10ml so should be able to get a few uses out of it to really see what it's like.
3.  Avene Micellar Lotion 3 in 1 - a 25ml sample of what looks like water but apparently takes off makeup, cleanses and tones all at the same time.  Anything that saves me time is a win in my book so if it does what it says it does I'll be very happy.

4.  Lash Cards.  There appears to be two sets in the pack and you apply the curved edge behind and at the base of your lashes then swipe on mascara,  Claims to improve lash length, prevent clumping and smudging.  I'm sorry but I'm massively skeptical when it comes to this for two reasons.  1.  I could use cardboard and make my own for a few cents 2.  I've been applying mascara for over 15 years now and I'm not afraid to say I think I've mastered it by now.  Also clumping and smudging is usually due to the mascara itself.  Anyways I'm willing to give it a go and be proven wrong but seriously....
5.Cellilux Glacial Mineral Gel - a 7g sample sachet of a face mask which contains negatively charged molecules to draw out postively charged bacteria and impurities from deep within the skin.  Interesting!

6.  Proplenish Marine Collagen Sachets.  You dissolve one sachet a day in water and drink to achieve beautiful skin, hair and nails.  I"m a firm believer that what you put in your mouth shows in various ways in our skin, hair, nails and overall general wellbeing so something like this is very interesting to me.  You can also take 2 sachets a day to help combat wrinkles.  I don't think taking this for 3 days would show a noticeable difference but will give it a try and possibly buy a full 30 pack if the taste and texture is drinkable.

It was a good box this month and I am impressed by the products.  Although nothing was a standout wow to me they are all products that I wouldn't have ever bought or tried without trying them first which I believe is the main purpose of the beauty boxes.

For those of you who don't know the Bellabox is an Australian beauty box subscription service for $15 a month and you can sign up or get more details here

What do you think of this months Bellabox - did you get the same or something different?

    1. I hear ya on the Avene thing and I'm so glad I didn't get another nail polish. On its own it's a good box but it's pretty hard not to compare it to the others. This one is the cheapest now tho so will be interesting to see how it goes compared to the more expensive ones.

  2. I have so many of those little Avene things...
    I'm so not excited for my box to come now - I think it's arriving tomorrow!

    Also, have you tried the collagen drink yet? I can't imagine it will taste good haha

  3. Yeah me too, I don't think I've used any of them so far!

    Havn't tried it yet but I'll let you know. I'm hoping it's tasteless :/

  4. Hi Ladies,

    Thanks for the comments on ProPlenish Marine Collagen, we are wrapped to see that you received the BellaBox that included our sample.

    Remember that you dont have to drink the Collagen in plain water, it can be added to anything from your tub of yogurt, to your morning cereal and fruit smoothy, even to your lunch time soup as it is heat stable.

    Including ProPlenish Marine Collagen into you daily diet is simple and your body reaps the benefits of you replenishing what you are loosing.
