June Bellabox


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. 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 [...]

May Bellabox


The May Bellabox collaborated with PopSugar & the theme was Sugar Fix. The front of the info card is a highlight & contour cheat sheet because everyone was guaranteed to get a highlight or contour pencil. Tracking email received: Monday May 18 Package received: Wednesday May 20 (again it was sent to another post office for collection) Chella - Ivory Lace Highlighter Pencil This pencil, either in highlight or contour, was guaranteed in each box. I was unsure originally which I would prefer as I don't have a highlight/contour routine. The pencil goes onto the skin quite easily but I find it quite [...]

April Bellabox


The April Bellabox theme was Mindful Beauty. This month's products are all about natural (and often organic) skin make up. I feel like they are just jumping on the bandwagon here & the blog post with the theme details uses words like natural, green, organic, vegan, philosophy & passion. Tracking email received: Monday, April 23 Package received: Monday, April 27 (I tried to pick it up on Saturday but as it was ANZAC day they were closed) Nivea Lip Butter - Vanilla & Macadamia I was quite a sceptic about this. I find a lot of brands don't actual moisturise my lips, [...]

March Bellabox


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. Tracking email received: Monday, March 23 Package received: Tuesday, March 24 Colour Theory - Eye Pencil in black 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 [...]

February Bellabox


The February Bellabox theme was ‘Beauty School’ with three different women's magazines curating a box each that included a copy of the magazine. I was lucky enough to receive an email about selecting which box I wanted. Unlucky for me I forgot which box I elected. As each box contained a different magazine, along with different products, they also all have different on sale dates. I made my selection based on the magazine & the bonus Essie Nail Colour in each box. Tracking email received: Friday, February 20 Package received: Thursday, February 26 I had some drama with the post office too. After receiving [...]

January Bellabox


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. Tracking email received: Monday January 19 Package received: Thursday January 22 (delivery was attempted on January 21 but I wasn't home) BellaBox - makeup pouch Everyone was set to get one of these in the January Bellabox. It is a bit smaller in person than [...]

December Bellabox


I really was hoping for something extra special to appear in the December Bellabox box, but what a letdown! Four skin care products, one make up item and one hair care item that is actually for curly hair, which I don't have. Tracking email received: Tuesday, December 16 Package received: Saturday, December 20 (delivery was attempted on December 19 but I wasn't home)   Elizabeth Mott - It's So Big Mascara I think I have found the (almost) perfect mascara! This goes on so beautifully, I rarely have to remove smudges from my eyelid afterwards. It isn't clumpy. It actually [...]

November Bellabox


The November Bellabox theme was ‘Dusk til Dawn’ with products to suit both those that party the night away or have a quiet night in. BellaBox had a great response to the sneak peak & promised a sample of the Coastal Scents Revealed eyeshadow palette would appear in each person's box.  Tracking email received: Monday, November 17 Package received: Tuesday, November 18   Coastal Scents - Revealed Palette Sampler Initially, I am a bit disappointed by the size. Seeing the sample size in photos on Instagram lead me to believe that it would be bigger. Maybe even 1 inch square for [...]

October Bellabox


The October Bellabox theme is ‘Born to be Wild’ in collaboration with Nicole (Sherzinger) x Misguided. BellaBox also celebrated their third birthday this month & as an extra special treat they teamed up with Kester Black to provide an exclusive nail polish in every single box! Tracking email received: Friday, October 17 Package received: Tuesday, October 21 Kester Black - Ruby Tuesday Red nail polish looks good on everyone & is an absolute classic. I have a few different shades of red in my collection now & it's probably the colour I have the most of. It takes about 3 thin [...]

September Bellabox


Tracking email received: Monday, September 22 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 5 pm. 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 [...]

August Bellabox


Tracking email received: Friday, August 29 Package received: Monday, September 1 The August Bellabox theme was ‘Sport your Style’.  I was very curious to see how they would tie beauty products in with fitness. From the August Bellabox sneak peak. Secretly, I was really hoping to get a shampoo & conditioner sample from Organix. I kept checking the BellaBox website & Instagram for updates. I finally received an email update on August 25 just saying that they were still shipping boxes and that the boxes might be in ‘alternative packaging this month’. Sadly there was no mention of why there [...]

July Bellabox


For my birthday I got a 1-year subscription to BellaBox. Each month I get a box of 5-6 make-up & beauty samples shipped straight to my door to try. The July Bellabox theme was American Beauty. What that really means, I’m not too sure. I think at least one of the products is meant to be from an American brand. The Balm - How ‘Bout Them Apples? This is my favourite product from this box. It provides a nice subtle colour to my lips & cheeks without being glossy or feeling too much like glycerin. It will be good for those [...]
