I arrived back from my holiday to New Zealand late on Saturday night and spent Sunday suffering from the typical post holiday blues. I'll write a specific post about the holiday later in the week and show you some of my favourite pics including some of the shopping I did over there but in short I had a fantastic time visiting family and friends and showing my man around my homeland.
I went back to work today and was surprised and delighted when my Bellabox was delivered. It seemed like a nice little welcome back present sent to cheer me up :)
It seems that Bellabox have stopped sending their products in boxes and just like last month have sent this months products wrapped in bubblewrap and encased with the above cardboard slip. It seems to keep it all together fine and I wasn't using the boxes they were sending so the change doesn't bother me at all.
|Bellabox October 2013|
The card enclosed indicated that this is Bellabox's 2 year Birthday edition and they teamed up with They All Hate Us to bring this box.
The October Bellabox has 7 items 6 of which are sample/trial size and one full size product. Straight away I could tell the one full size product was worth more than what I'd paid for the box ($15) so I was happy.
Alfaparf Semi Di Lino Reconstruction Shampoo and Reconstruction Mask
I have never heard of this brand but these trial sized bottles are the perfect size to try out a new product. These both smell really good and I'm looking forward to trying them out.
Vaseline Healthy Radiance Anti-Aging Lotion
This body moisturiser contains AHA and pro-retinol to help fight the signs of aging so I'm intrigued to try this out and see what effect it has (if any). Another good trial size.
Beyonce Heat Perfume 2ml
This smells a bit strong for me but I like to keep these in my handbag for emergencies.
Nivea Light Moisturising Day Cream for Normal & Combination Skin
This doesn't really appeal to me much but I may give it a try. It does have SPF15 in it so might be a good one to try out on a hot summers day when I can get away with using a lighter day cream.
Loreal Paris Shine Caresse in 501 Bonnie
I was really excited to see this product as I've been wanting to try them out. This is worth $23.95 and apparently combines a gloss and lipstick in one.
Loreal Nutri Lift Gold Serum Foundation - Sachet
Another product I was excited to see, I've seen this foundation around but keep forgetting to swatch it when I'm in store. I think this sample in the colour Sand will be too dark for me but I'll try it out to see what the colour and consistency are like.
All in all I'm pretty happy with this box. There's nothing Wow in it but I should be able to use all of the products and for $15 it's not hard to see the value.
