Bellabox December 2013

I was pleasantly surprised to find my Bellabox had arrived nice and early this month!  I thought they might have gone for a holiday season/Christmas special but there is no mention of anything like that.

Here's what was inside this month's box...

Bellabox December 2013

Bonus Tote Bag

9 Items in total with one being a bonus tote bag.  The rest is mostly all sample size with one full-size makeup product.

Benefit Porefessional Primer
I'm a huge fan of Benefit so it's nice to see them feature in Bellabox.  I've used this silicone based primer before and will happily keep this as a good travel size primer.

Romy Shampoo & Conditioner
I've never heard of this brand but these smell devine.  Can't wait to try them!

Avene Relief Concentrate 
This says it is for chronic redness.  I have two things to say about this;  I'm completely over seeing Avene samples and seriously Bellabox how many of your subscribers would actually have a problem with chronic redness - surely less than 5%.

Simple Kind to Eyes Makeup Remover
I've never had much luck with this brand but I'll give this a go.  I normally use an oil based makeup remover so it easily breaks down mascara and eyeliner without too much pulling but this one is water-based so I'll be interested to see how it performs.  Again this is a good size for travel.

Mary Kay Natural Cheek Tint - Pink Pearl
The colour of this blush is just stunning.  It's a rosy pink with a gold sheen to it.  Can't wait to try it out and I reckon this would also make a good eyeshadow.

Eslor Sample Pack - 4 Sachets
This is a fantastic pack that holds a Comforting Mask, Soothing Cream, Cleanser & a Replenishing Scrub.  Another brand I haven't heard of but the prices indicate it's a high end brand.  This is such an awesome way to be able to try out a few different things from one brand.

Bonus Mor Essentials Hand Cream - Neroli Concentrate
I will keep this handy in my bag for the next time I remember to use hand cream.

Bonus Tote Ba
This is slightly bigger than an A4 piece of paper and whilst I'm sure I'll put it to good use I audibly laughed at the RRP of $19.95 that Bellabox put on it.  Nobody and I mean n.o.b.o.d.y in their right mind would pay $20 for this tiny piece of material.

All in all I think the box is great, theres quite a few things there that I look forward to trying out and it definitely holds more value to me than the $15 I paid for it which is always my measure for these kinds of subscription services.

What do you think of this month's Bellabox?

  1. $20 for the tote would be highway robbery!! :) I'd love to try the POREfessional, looks like a pretty good box.

  2. Haha! I like that we felt the same way about the tote, and we got the same box! A lot of the same sentiments regarding this box, including that I thought it was going to be more Christmassy!

  3. I agree with the ladies above about the totes! Quite a nice box, there seem be mary kay products in box both boxes lately!
