Bellabox June 2013

Last month after all the beauty boxes had been received and reviewed I made the decision to unsubscribe to Lusthaveit.  I didn't do this because Lusthaveit aren't good - just that the other boxes are better and with their recent price hike I just couldn't justify it anymore.  Sooner or later you just have to ask yourself if that $20 a month is actually providing value to you.  Or could you take that $20 a month and buy the one thing that you may have liked out of that box or even save it up for 3 months and buy an awesome $60 product that you really do want.

But now that's enough deep and meaningful thoughts for the day let's get on to the exciting stuff!!

I'm most excited to bring you this month's bellabox because quite frankly - its awesome.  There are 3 full sized products, one tool and 10 - yes TEN - samples.

The theme this month is 'Girls Night in / Girls Night Out"

June Bellabox - Girls Night in.... Girls Night out
 and here's what was inside:

June Bellabox

Streetgloss Lipgloss - Ultra Diamonds Volume Lipgloss
Full size RRP$17.95 / Transparent Pale Pink (102)
I've never heard of this brand but this is a really cute pale pink shimmery lipgloss and as the theme suggests would be really great for a night out.  I really like getting things in these boxes from brands I haven't heard of before.  I tried this on as soon as I got it and it's not sticky at all and an added bonus is that it smells lovely and sweet

Emerginc Samples 2x 3ml 
Hyper Vitalizer Cream & Vitamin C & Retinol Mask
These retail at between $65 & $99 dollars for full size so I'll be interested to try these both out and see if they're worth it.  I do recall receiving a sample from this brand in a previous beauty box.

Sigma Beauty E05 Eyeliner Brush RRP$10
My eyes just about popped out of my head when I saw a Sigma brush inside my box.  I only have two Sigma brushes so far but they are amazing so I'm very excited to add another one to my collection - especially since it's in my favourite colour too.

Sigma EO5 Eyeliner Brush

Toni & Guy Creative Texturising Glue
Full size 100ml RRP$15.99
I like Toni & Guy products and was happy to see this full size product in there.  To be honest I probably won't get a lot of use out of it although it'll be handy to have around.  Pretty sure my lovely boyfriend's going to be getting this one.

Montagne Jeunesse Passion Peel Off Mask
Half-size - a full size retails at $3.99
I love doing face masks in winter when my skin needs all the help it can get.  Will definitely be using this up.

Brazilian Butterfly Assortment 
7x 5ml samples
It was awesome to receive 7 samples so that I could try out so much of their range.  I'm not usually a fan of sachets but these will be perfect to pack the next time I go away for a night.  There's even a sample of an ingrown hair treatment in there.

7x Brazilian Butterfly Samples

Bonus Product: Natio Nail Polish
Fullsize RRP$9.95 in Valentine
A full size bottle of red nail polish.  I don't think I've ever tried to pull off red nail polish nor will I be trying any time soon but I'm sure it won't be hard to find somebody to give it too.  Bellabox is also giving the opportunity to upload a picture of yourself wearing this nailpolish to go in the draw to win one of 3 Canix Black Diamond Ring's valued at $500 which is pretty awesome.

Overall I am extremely happy with this beauty box.  There's something in there that everyone can enjoy and at only $15 I don't think anyone would argue that this is fantastic value.  Bellabox is now the cheapest Australian beauty subscription box but in my opinion holds the most value.  If you want to sign up head to their website here.

What did you think of this month's bellabox?  Are you getting tired of beauty box subscriptions yet?


  1. Jealous you got the Sigma brush! And the sachets are so good coming in a big pack, I'm the same usually I hate them but I really liked the way they gave use lots of different once in the cute little pack :)

  2. Aw, I didn't get the Sigma brush. I got a bar of soap instead! My shade of lipgloss isn't as nice, it's a champagne colour. Not too excited about mine so I don't think I'll blog about this one. Glad you got a good box this month :D

    1. Oooh that doesn't sound too good - I'm not a fan of soap so I wouldn't have been very impressed with that :/

  3. That is such a good box this month. I love the little sachet pack they are so cute, it's the one thing I wish I did receive. My box was a little different to yours but I was very happy with what I received.

    1. Yeah I was pretty impressed - so weird that you got cleansing wipes and soap. I don't think I would've been too happy with those items. I will never work out how the company's decide who gets what - I really don't think that its an age thing - my sister is the lower age bracket to me and got the same this month.

  4. I'm very impressed with BB this month :) I'm not sure how much use i'd get out of the tony and guy product either. but nice box overall!

  5. I love red nail polish! You should try it out, you might be pleasantly surprised!
