Another month has very quickly passed, and I've teamed up with Bellabox yet again for this months Futureproof box, and here's what was in it… and yes, you may have noticed that contents in the Bellaboxes often vary from subscriber to subscriber, but make sure to read all the way to the end for a very exciting inclusion for all receivers… 

La Roche Posay Effaclar Duo (+) - Sample size, 3ml (RRP: $29.90 / 40ml) 
I absolutely love this moisturiser that helps correct the appearance of imperfections, unclog blocked pores and fight against redness and blemishes. This non greasy moisturiser makes such a significant difference to my skin, and I love that it is non-greasy too, as it is designed for oily and acne prone skin, so it is also perfect as a base for makeup. I have just run out, and not had a chance to purchase a new tube, so this little tube will help until I can get my hands on a new one, but naturally I wouldn’t have minded a slightly bigger sample. 

La Roche Posay Effaclar Duo (+) Unfiant - Sample size, 3ml (RRP: $29.90 / 40ml)
This is a new addition to the range, which now also comes with a light sheer tint available in two different shades. I immediately fell in love with this one too, a corrective cream that gives you coverage, doesn't get better than that, so I cannot get my hands on a full sized tube fast enough. Again, I would naturally have loved a bigger sample, but there is sufficient in the tube to try out a few times, so you can really get a feel for what it is like.

Estee Lauder Bronze Goddess Eau Fraiche SKinScent - Sample size 1.5ml (RRP: $95 / 50ml)

This is such a gorgeous warm citrus scent that immediately takes you back to the warm summer days. A beautiful fragrance that I wouldn't mind getting a full sized bottle off.

Kerastase Disipline Spray Fluidissime - Sample, 45ml (RRP: $46 / 150ml)
This is a leave-in anti-frizz spray that is so good. The spray is so easy to spray and work into damp hair, and the results are amazing. It simply leaves the hair so soft and shiny, while it keeps frizz at bay too and protecting it during heat styling too. And all while leaving the hair smelling absolutely amazing. I already have a full sized bottle of this, and have been loving it so much that I have been considering a repurchase, that's how good this stuff is. 

Cetaphil Gentle Skin Cleaner - Sample, 30ml (RRP: $25.70 / 1litre) 
Who doesn't love this super gentle cleanser, which is perfect for even the most sensitive of skins. I actually also like using this to clean my makeup brushes, as I know it will also be gentle on them too.

Colourpop Hello Kitty Ultra Glossy Lip - Full Sized
Now for the exciting news - everyone will be getting a Colourpop lip product in their May Bellabox. This incredible LA brand has a huge cult following - and I for one has been keen to try out some of their products - and now I can. And I have to say that I am already in love too and can understand what all the hype is about. I got the shade Hello Pretty, which is a bright darker fuchsia pinky-red shade with micro shimmer, and feels lovely on the lips, being non-sticky and with a nice high gloss. Very excited to have tried something from the brand, finally - though now just even keener to try more of their products..

So there you go, the contents of the May '17 Bellabox. And again I am very impressed - in fact, I think this is one of the best boxes (albeit only few so far) I have received. I love and will use every single item. Yes, I already know several of them, such as the Cetaphil Cleanser, La Roche Posay Effaclar Duo (+) and the Kerastase Disipline Spray Fluidissime, so I guess you can say that from that point of view, there is not much new to the box, but regardless, it is products that I truly love, so I honestly don't mind, and that said, the fact that I know I will use every single item, makes this month's box great value. And on top, I am so excited about the new tinted version of the La Roche Posay Effaclar Duo (+), and needless to say, the Colourpop Lip Gloss as well. Well done Bellabox, you've really hit the mark this month!
