13 September 2017


Can you believe it, another month has passed, and thankfully it is now officially spring, though it would be nice if the weather would acknowledge that too, and give us some warmer weather! A new months also means a new Bella Box, and the September 2017 Bella Box has the theme Front Row Fab... 

Let's see what was in this month's box.. 

John Frieda Frizz Ease Forever Smooth Leave In Cream Primer - Sample, 20mlg (RRP: $16.99 / 100ml)

I only recently put a few of the other products from this range to the test, and really liked them, so happy with the inclusion of this. I am always looking for a good leave-in, and this one promising to eliminate frizz and keep the hair smooth, sounds pretty good to my ears. Cant wait to try it. Product value approx. $3.40

Derma E Purifying 2 in 1 Charcoal Mask - Sample, 14g (RRP: $34.95 / 48g)

With a skin prone to breakouts, I am always looking for a great mask, and this mask does sound great. It is infused with charcoal, natural clays and antioxidants and promises to remove excess oil while exfoliating the skin, for a fresher, and healthier glow. I am also excited about this as this brand is completely new to me. Bring on pamper night! Approx. value $10.20

Avene Extremely Gentle Cleansing Lotion - Sample, 25ml (RRP: $31.95 / 200ml)
I have previously tried this cleanser from an inclusion in a beauty subscription box, so as such it doesn't really excite me. That said, I actually quite like this gentle cleanser, so on the other hand, I don't mind that its included. it is efficient, and leaves my skin feeling soft and calm. The small bottle is also perfect for travelling. Approx. value $3.99

Stylondon Siligel Blender - Full size (RRP: $14 / one blender)
Silicone makeup blenders is all the rave at the moment, so the inclusion of this one is very fitting. This one is very cute with its pastel pink glittery design. I like the idea that it can easily be cleaned, and thus is so much more hygienic than a standard makeup sponge. I am yet to try a silicone sponge, so look forward to seeing how I go. Value $14.00

ModelCo Instant Brow Retractable Pencil - Full Size (RRP: $16 / 1g)
After years of over-plucking, I am always looking for great brow products - and admit that in spite of all the rave reviews, I have tried very few products from ModelCo. So I am quite excited to be putting this brow pencil to the test. It has a wind-up pencil at one end with a pointed tip to make it easy to fill in the brows, and in the other end, it has a nifty spoolie to brush brows into shape afterwards. Certainly a great inclusion. Can't wait to try it out. Value $16.00

Bonus - Swisspers Original Facial Wipes - sample pack/one wipe.
As I've said many times before, I am not a huge user of facial wipes, only when I'm travelling which these days I don't do a lot - so not too excited about this one. That said, I have tried the Swisspers wipes before and they are lovely, and the single wipe, will be handy to pop into the handbag for emergencies too.

So there you go, this months Bella Box. From a novelty aspect, two brands are new to me, Derma E and Styllondon, which is great, as for me, beauty boxes is also about getting to know new brands. In general I am happy with the included products, and look forward to putting most to the test. And from a variety point of view, I also like the selection this month, which ranges from makeup hair care and skincare. I also think it is great that there are a two full sized products included, the ModelCo Pencil and the Siligel Blender, and the rest of the samples are of a decent deluxe size giving you a fair opportunity to test out a product to see if you like it. Value wise, due to the two full sized products, the value is also quite decent this month at approx. $47, which is pretty good considering the $17.95 cost of the box. So well done Bella Box on putting together a fantastic box yet again this month.

Bella Box - RRP: $17.95 ($15.00+ $2.95 P&H) on a subscription plan, billed monthly, but you can cancel anytime
