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:
- I will be paying for it (it was a gift last year)
- the price has increased (to cover postage costs)
- lack of variety of products
- the variety between boxes varies so much
- items often don’t match my beauty profile
- unknown brands
- lack of full-size samples
- 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!
