Package received: Monday September 22
For some reason, I received my tracking email for the September Bellabox on Monday even though the package was posted on Friday. Perhaps it was because it was posted after 5pm.
The September Bellabox theme was ‘Beauty Wardrobe with Gritty Pretty’. I think this month’s products were really in line with the theme. Again, I was very excited after seeing the sneak peak. I was really hoping to get the Cactus Skincare White Clay mask. I’ve heard really good things about it.
I feel that I must mention I have 2 products left from the August box: the dry shampoo, although I’ve made good use of this, and the nail polish.

Cedel – scented hairspray
I must say I was annoyed when I saw this as I thought it was another dry shampoo! I didn’t know that Cedel made other products. This hairspray smells tropical without smelling like coconut tanning oil.
Klorane – Quinune & Vitamin B Shampoo
I haven’t tried any Klorane products before but know they make clarifying & dry shampoos. It was quite runny to use but has a nice smell & left my hair squeaky clean.
I have been using another brand of micellar solution & have found this one to be no different. It doesn’t have a smell, doesn’t sting your eyes or any part of your face & does a fantastic job at removing makeup. I don’t know if I would buy this brand, just because there are cheaper alternatives but I think the micellar solution will be a staple in my cupboard.
Sleek Makeup – Eye Dust
This is quite a nice colour, its practically neutral (my favourite!). I haven’t had the chance to use this yet but I’m sure it will work nicely with anything in my Naked Palette.
Wotnot – Facial Wipes (oily skin)
I have never been a fan of the price of facial wipes & I’m sure nobody is, so I have always used baby wipes to take off my makeup. These are quite a lot larger than I was expecting & were quite damp. I think if I scrunched it up & squeezed some liquid would come out.
Garnier – Perfect Blur
The product feels like a light whipped body butter but at the same time, it also feels like a water-based gel. There aren’t any instructions on the pack so I wasn’t sure how best to use it. I just used it in place of my moisturiser but didn’t notice any differences at all. Maybe next time I will put it on under foundation.
Revlon – Colorstay Foundation in natual beige
I know this product is fantastic because it’s what I currently use except in a different colour. This colour might be useful as the weather warms up & tan gets a bit darker.
Thoughts on the September Bellabox
Sadly, I was not a recipient of the Cactus Skincare White Clay mask. So I have ordered some samples from their website.
