The June Bellabox theme was ‘Winter Warrior’ with the idea to brighten up winter with a pop of colour. It was revealed that everyone would receive a lip tint stick.
BellaBox June

Tracking email received: I didn’t actually get one
Package received: Wednesday, June 17

This is actually my last Bellabox too as I received a one-year subscription for my birthday last year. There are many reasons why I have chosen not to renew my subscription, in no particular order:

  1. I will be paying for it (it was a gift last year)
  2. the price has increased (to cover postage costs)
  3. lack of variety of products
  4. the variety between boxes varies so much
  5. items often don’t match my beauty profile
  6. unknown brands
  7. lack of full-size samples
  8. all of the above contribute to lack of value for money

I’m also having trouble keeping up with all of the samples I have. I really am doing my best to use all of the products but along with what I was already using there are just too many options! I have at least two boxes of samples I haven’t really started using yet!

I was excited to receive this as I like trying new lip colours. The applicator reminds me of a highlighter tip or text but works quite well & gives you the ability to be quite precise. I haven’t had to touch it up once as it lasts almost all day. It also has a cute quote on the end of the tube.

The best way to describe how this smells when you use it is a burst of sour watermelon. I also didn’t think it was moisturising as it claims to be but have noticed that my legs don’t appear to be dry & flaky like thy normally are during winter. I first came across Original Source in England 2011 when I had about 4 varieties to choose from when staying with relatives.

I’ve seen people rave about this brand but I have never actually used it before as I am pretty loyal to another brand. It smells like peppermint & sometimes makes my lips tingle, like they are being plumped.

Ivadore – Tanning Treatment

I will probably just put this on my legs to used it up so I can throw it out. I don’t do fake tan mostly because I cannot be bothered.

Model Co – Exfoliating & Cleansing All-Natural Facial Wipe

I have had a sample of this before & like the idea of one side being textured (to exfoliate) & the other being smooth. I will probably use this next time I have a full face of make-up to remove.

Palmolive Naturals – Active Nourishment Shampoo & Conditioner

As a kid I used to get an itchy scalp after using Palmolive. I am not brave enough to try it now either!
