The March Bellabox theme was ‘#Selfie’. What that means for the content of this months box, I don’t know. BellaBox is running a competition with Stabilo (one of the brands included in the box) so to enter you need to post a selfie with a certain hashtag using the Stabilo product.

I’m not going to open this because I have enough black eyeliners that I barely use. I will see if my mum wants it. I’m sure its great and I’m sorry I can’t give an actual review of it.

Like pretty much all Palmer’s products, this smells like cocoa butter. It’s quite a thick cream that spreads easily and is absorbed quickly. I think I will keep this to use when I have some dry patches on my face or if I feel it needs a good dose of moisture.

Similarly, smells like the signature cocoa butter & is a white cream. As far as removing makeup, it works. It got my day old mascara off nicely and didn’t sting my eyes. I like that it’s a cream cleanser as I find foaming cleansers tend to dry my face. Although I was left with some dry patches on my cheeks next to my nose (not uncommon for me) and a bit of a dry forehead which was odd.

If I had to give a name to what this smells like it would be botanical, it smells like the stems and leaves of plants. This is a medium density white face cream. While I’m not sure if it has refined my pores, my face certainly seems smoother. I think I will need to use this for a few more days in a row to decide if I would like to purchase it or not.

This smells like the Wen Sweet Almond and Mint Conditioner I got in the January Bellabox. I used both whole pouches in one go. Normally there is enough for at least two washes in samples. I found the packaging a bit awkward while in the shower, it seems to be made of plastic lined paper and I’m sure you know what happens when the paper gets wet. The shampoo did make my hair feel squeaky clean, so we shall see how long that feeling lasts.

I use Revlon foundation regularly and am hoping the colour of this will match me. I currently use ‘buff’ or ‘shell’ in the photo ready formula.

This is stationary, not a tube of lip product. I like the packaging; it looks like it should be a tube of lip gloss, although I don’t think I would wear neon yellow on my lips! I haven’t decided if I will add this to the other stationery in my handbag or keep it at the office.
