Bella Box February 2014 Review

Once again Bella Box does not disappoint. This month's theme was 'Red Carpet Ready' and contained 6 deluxe samples. Here is what was included in this month's box:
Bella Box February 2014

  1. OM SHE: Buff Away Face Polish RRP$13.95, 125ml. Received 30ml sample.
    A gentle but potent face scrub. The scrub is granular yet still gentle enough for my sensitive skin. The scent of this scrub is deliciously aromatic and botanical. All in all it was a great pleasure to use.

  2. BURT'S BEES: Milk and Honey Body Lotion RRP $19.95, 170g. Received 25g sample.
    This is apprantly a cult product and unfortunately I do not see why. It may be sulphate, paraben and petrochemical free but it smells very unpleasant and even plastic like to me. It absorbed easily into the skin and is very light weight but the scent really bothers me so unfortunately I did not like this lotion.

  3. KLARA COSMETICS: Kiss Proof Lips Colour RRP $29.99, 8ml. Received 1.2ml sample.
    A full coverage and long lasting matte lip colour. I received the shade 01 which is a gorgeous bronze-pink shade which reminds me of the NARS Orgasm blush shade.

  4. AVEDA: Pure Abundance Style Prep. RRP $44.95, 100ml. Received 30ml sample.
    This spray volumises thin fine hair. It contains passion fruit, rice bran and acai oil and also helps to stop breakages. I haven't yet tried this spray yet but I'm expecting good things from it.

  5. SYNTHESIS: Organic Hydrate Tonic RRP $54.00, 50ml. Received 15ml sample.
    This multi purpose spray can be used as a toner and a refreshing mist for hair and face. The scent is so pleasant and feels lovely on my face. I think I will keep this for when I travel next. I really liked this spray.

  6. SWISSPERS: Naturals Aloe Nourishing Face Cream RRP $10.99, 50ml. Received Satchet.
    This was a bonus sample. This moisturiser is pleasant to apply and is suitable for all skin types. Unfortunately I don't think this will suit oily skin for the day time, so this will be better for use at night. This face cream has a light scent that isn't entirely unleasant but it isn't a pretty scent either. I didn't experience allergic reactions from using this. I love using Swisspers face wipes so I'm pleased that this face cream continues to do the brand justice.  
I recently unsubscribed to 2 other beauty boxes but remained subscribed to Bella Box. I think that it's fair price, reliability and great content make it one of the best beauty boxes. I would highly recommend Bella Box for those interested in subscribing to a beauty box. If you're subscribed to Bella Box what was your favourite item this month?

Lust Have It! February 2014 Review

This month's LustHaveIt! box arrived on time. This month the box contained 7 items, 3 of which are full sized products. This was my last month being subscribed to Lust Have It! The brand was the first beauty box company I was subscribed to but unfortunately the continued late delivery of my last 3 boxes influenced my decision to cancel my subscription. Although this month did not come with it's collectible box packaging, I'm so glad that my last box from Lust Have It! was a good one. Here is what was included in the February 2014's Lust Have It! box:

Lust Have It! February 2014

  1. VASELINE: Ultimate 10 Anti Aging Body Lotion RRP $16.29, 750ml *Received 25ml Sample*
    Claims to restore and tightens the skin whilst relieving the skin from dryness. The lotion smells luxuriously perfumed, is light weight and absorbs into the skin quickly. The lotion left my skin feeling soft and pleasantly scented. I did feel slightly itchy so this might not be ideal for sensitive skin.

  2. JUICE BEAUTY: Green Apple Peel Sensitive RRP $65, 60ml *Received 7ml Sample*
    Exfoliates to reduce and refine fine lines and wrinkles and lightens hyperpigmentation. This mask is lovely to use. I didn't get a reaction from using this. I haven't used this long enough to test the claims on lightening hypermigmentation.

  3. (Whoops, I numbered the same product)

  4. HAND SPA BIJOUX: Hand Wipe RRP $1.50 *Received full size wipe*
    Made from 100% cotton this hand wipe is designed to provide the skin with deep moisturisation. I did a little research on this and found that it also contains anti bacterial properties. So it's pretty much a luxurious cleansing wipe I think (of course I'm happy to be proven wrong). I didn't find it overly moistursing but the wipe felt pleasant against my skin. I wouldn't re-purchase this one though. I think it's a tad over-priced and a little gimmicky.

  5. THE COSMETIC KITCHEN: Eye Shadow in 'Raspberry Cooly' RRP$22.50 *Received Full Size*
    Apply dry for subtle effects and damp for electric colour. I haven't tried this yet, but I'm glad I received a pink shade. I don't have many pink eye shadows.

  6. CLAIROL PROFESSIONAL: Radiance Shampoo RRP$13.95, 250ml *Received 50ml Sample*
    I haven't tested this shampoo yet but it smells pleasant enough. It's designed to protect and instantly condition coloured hair.

  7. THE COSMETIC KITCHEN: Blush Brush RRP$22.50 *Received Full Size*
    Certified vegan and cruelty free cosmetic brushes. The blush brush I received is so soft and the bristles are densely packed yet very felxible and distributes blush over the face evenly.

  8. CLAIROL PROFESSIONAL: Volume Mousse RRP$19.50, 50ml *Received 50ml Sample*
    I don't use mousse so I'll leave give this to a friend instead.
I liked what was in this month's LustHaveIt! box. I liked receiving the blush brush in particular. Are you subscribed as well? What was your favourite item in the box?
