Bellabox July 2014

My Bellabox arrived yesterday and I was excited to see that the theme this month was "American Beauty".  With a theme like that I expected that most if not all of the products in the box would be either from or made in America. Disappointingly we've got a range of products coming from Australia, Japan, Canada, Italy and America...

The biggest highlight of the box is the product from Anastasia Beverly Hills.  This is the "Lash Genius" Clear Waterproof Topcoat which you can apply over any mascara to make it waterproof.  A pretty awesome idea and I'm looking forward to trying it out.  This is an American brand that is quite hard to get here in Australia so this product definitely lives up to the "American Beauty" theme even though it is made in Italy.

A little sample of the Japanese Yu-be Moisturising Skin Cream made it's way to me for a second time.  This is a concentrated cream which can be used on face, lips or body.

Urban Rituelle is an Australian brand that I love although I'm not a soap user so I'll be passing the Body Soap on to someone else.  Like all their products this smells divine!

A Nicole by OPI nail polish in "Play Fair" is the second product to fit the theme as it is actually made in USA.  I think the colour is quite nice but as I predominately use shellac on my nails I might save this for Summer on my toes. 

I'm not a big fan of Designer Brands but I tried this lip butter straight away as I'm a sucker for anything with Coconut on the label.  Unfortunately this smells more like tutti-frutti than coconut and rather than hydrating my lips it just feels like I've popped a layer of grease on them.  Yuk.

And last but not least a little sachet of a Mary Kay Face Mask for Dry Skin.  I'm not sure if there's enough in there to cover my whole face but I'm suffering with drier than normal skin at the moment due to winter so I'll try it out and see how it goes.

That's all for this month, as always if you want to find out more about subscribing to Bellabox head to their website

What did you think of this month's box?

  1. Not sure I'd be real thrilled with this month, the mascara is the most exciting for sure. And I love a face mask so that would get some use too :)

  2. You got exactly the same box I did, right down to the OPI colour : ). I'm using the DB lip butter as a winter foot treatment - slap it on, put socks over it, go to bed and wake up with moisturised feet. I'm not putting it on my lips again!
