No surprises that the theme for the January Bellabox was “Kick Start” with it being the best time to change old habits & be better all around. I think some of these items fit really well with the theme & am happy to report I like this box an awful lot more than last month.

BellaBox – makeup pouch
Everyone was set to get one of these in the January Bellabox. It is a bit smaller in person than it seemed in the photos on the website. I haven’t decided what I will use mine for yet, maybe the millions of pens & lip products in my handbag. There are currently about 3 pens and 5 lip products floating around in there!
Again, this item was guaranteed in all boxes this month. The shade was a bright magenta/pink, not my colour. By chance, it looks better than I suspected! It glides on smooth & is quick to apply. It smells a bit minty, like mild toothpaste, which isn’t a bad thing.

I was very happy to be a recipient of the teatox. I technically haven’t done one before (I’ve only used a detox tea from the supermarket). This sample pack comes with 9 bags, 6 for the morning then 3 for the evening, making it a 6-day teatox. Unfortunately, there were no directions on the pack. I had to look them up on the SkinnyMint website. You have one cup each morning & one cup every second evening. I had some side effects as listed on the pack in the afternoon on day two. I think this might be good for me to just do two days at a time, say twice a month or so.
This smells like aromatherapy, mostly lavender. You don’t need to use much for it to foam up in your hand before you apply it to your face. I think the best part of this product is that it doesn’t hurt your eyes, so you can get in there & give them a rub to remove the eye makeup without it reducing you to tears.
I was amazed by the size of this sample! It is 60mL and I have had put it into its own container as the sachet is a bit awkward now that it’s open. This has a sweet minty smell & will probably last me 5+ washes, although the packet says it will do 2 applications.
I have honestly been meaning to give this a go before posting this, but I just haven’t had the chance. I predict it will work just as good as slathering on a thick layer of rich moisturiser, popping on a pair of socks & sleeping your way to softer feet.
