April 2014 Bellabox Review

I'm really pleased with Bellabox's service. Each and every month they deliver their beauty boxes on time. This month 6 items were included in the box.

April 2014 Bellabox
  1. AVON MEGA EFFECTS MASCARA | RRP$19.95, 9ml | Full Size
    The cost for this mascara alone covers the $15 charge of the box. I absolutely love the unique bristles of this brush. It's like you have a tool that gently paints your lashes with mascara and separates it so you're not left with a clumpy mess. I want to do a thorough review of this mascara so I'll keep it brief here. Here's an image of the brush and handle:


  2. REVLON NEARLY NAKED FOUNDATION SAMPLES
    This was a bonus inclusion. 4 different shades of foundation sachet testers are included on the sample card.

  3. BURT'S BEES LIP BALM | RRP$7.95, 8.5g | Full Size
    A cult favourite. This natural lip balm is a favourite among celebrities and beauty lovers. I have 3 unopened Burt's Bees lip balms and I didn't really love it the first time I tried this. I will have to give it a second chance though. Hopefully it's not one of those products that are overly hyped up and don't deliver on it's claims.

  4. INDIO EYE RISE | RRP$67.20, 15ml | 5ml
    Aclay colourred yet kiwi-like scented eye cream. I've only tried it once. I didn't get any skin reactions from using this but I will keep it with the other cosmetics I'm yet to use up (I have a slight addiction).

  5. MONTAGNE JEUNESSE DRY SKIN MASK | RRP$4.99, 17g | Full Size
    A two step at home facial mask and moisturiser. I can't wait to try it out this weekend for my weekly at-home-facial.

  6. VASELINE  ANTI AGEING BODY LOTION | RRP$7.68, 225ml | 25ml
    I already have a couple of samples of this lotion from previous beauty boxes. It's a great little purse/travel size.
This box had 3 full sized items! I particularly love the mascara and face mask. Also, the Bellabox packaging is so cute and in my favourite colour. Did you like what was in you Bellabox this month?

March 2014 Bellabox Review


There were quite a few goodies in this beauty box. Some were old faves and some were new products I haven't tried yet. This box had a good selection of hair, body and cosmetic products. There was 8 products in total that was included.

  1. MODEL CO. PARTY PROOF CREAM LIPSTICK | 'Incognito' | RRP$16.95, 3.8g | Full Size

    'Incognito' is a flattering wine shade which I think will suit a lot of skin tones. The lipstick is creamy and comfortable on application. The scent of this lipstick is pleasant and slightly sweet. I love that this lipstick's packaging includes a mirror on the lid - So handy! I don't know why no other brands have thought of this. The price of this lipstick already covers the box's AU$15.00 price. This lipstick is a lovely addition to my already ridiculous lipstick collection.

  2. WOW BY ROMY BATH GEL | 'Mandarin & Lime' | Deluxe Sample Size

    This smells refreshing and uplifting but it really wasn't extraordinary, it's just like and other bath gel.

  3. MILK & CO. | Ultra Light Moisturiser | RRP$19.95, 115ml | 10ml

    I love Milk & Co. their products are gentle yet effective and deliver on promises. Ultra Light Moisuriser is a light and comfortable product. It's moisturising yet non greasy. I have sensitive skin and I did not get any skin reactions from using this. It has a lovely light scent that smells slightly herbal.

     
  4. THIERRY MUGLER PERFUME | 'Alien' | Sample

    A strong sweet scent. Not my cup of tea but it's not unpleasant.

  5. WOTNOT  FACIAL WIPES | RRP$7.95, 25 Wipes | 5 Wipes

    These are one of my favourite brands of facial wipes. They're great for sensitive skin and are effective at removing makeup. I still find that I need my Lancome eye makeup remover to  remove my mascara.

  6. THIERRY MUGLER PERFUME | 'Angel' | Sample

    Angel is a sweet and musky scent that is definitely not for the faint hearted. It lasts a long time and a little spritz is all you need. It's a strong scent and it can be over powering, it's like a female version of the Men's perfume Joop.

  7. PANTENE AQUA LIGHT SHAMPOO & CONDITIONER | $7.99, 350ml | 40ml

    I love this. I already have these in my shower so having miniature sized bottles would be handy to have the next time I travel.

I'm Back!!!

Hello my lovely friends.

I'm finally back & have full access to my blog (The woes of technology). Apologies for my inactivity. I'm posting some well overdue reviews tonight and throughout the week. Thank you so much for your patience and I hope you enjoy the posts coming your way. ❤ ❤ 

March 2014 Lust Have It Review

I had planned to un-subscribe from Lust Have It! but I was offered to stay on for another month for only $10.00 so of course I could not decline. I've previously been disappointed with the Lust Have It! but the March 2014 contents impressed me so much that I decided to stay subscribed. Here are the contents of the box:

Lust Have It! March 2014
  1. BLOOM SECRET WEAPON CONCEALER KIT | 'Fair/Medium' | RRP$20, 5.5g | Full Size

    This handy palette contains 6 creamy skin fixers including 3 concealer shades, an illuminiser, a blemish cover and an under eye concealer. The palette also comes with a small brush. At first I was sketchy about how good this was going to be but at first swatch I was excited about how thick and creamy the concealers were but still applied evenly over the skin. The fair/medium kit is a good match for my skin tone but it may be too light if you have a dark or olive skin tone.

  2. KLARA KISS PROOF LIPS | '04' | RRP$29, 8ml | 1.2 ml

    This lipstick/gloss reminds me of the YSL glossy stains. The lipstick is comfortable to wear but I haven't had an opportunity to test out it's kiss-proof 24 hour lasting claim yet. I'm so glad I received the shade 04. It's a vibrant hot pink/magenta shade that I think would suit most skin tones.

  3. HUMAN TESTED VEGAN LIP BALM | RRP$9, 6g | Full Size

    "Smooth, natural, long lasting lip balm which refreshens and soothes the lip while being vegan and human tested only" 

    * I haven't had the pleasure of testing this lip balm yet *

  4. ORLY NAIL LACQUER | 'On The List' | RRP$18.95, 18ml | 5.4ml

    'On The List' is a black currant  shade with a slight shimmer. 2 - 3 light layers achieves the gorgeous Autumn/Winter appropriate shade.

  5. AVEDA | INTENSIVE HYDRATING MASQUE | RRP$79.95, 150ml | 7ml

    " An oil free  masque that hydrates and cools skin, providing soothing relief from dryness, stress, and exposure to the elements. " This is to be applied on to the face and neck after cleansing and exfoliating and left on for 5-10 minutes. Rinse with warm water and pat dry. Follow with your usual moisturiser.

    A lovely product to help soothe the skin during the seasonal changes. It was gentle on my sensitive skin and did not irritate.

  6. RECOVERLYTE TROPICAL POWDER | RRP$11.95, 10 Sachets | 1 Sachet

    An effervescent powder developed to restore electrolytes in the body after a night out. I haven't yet tried this out. I'm getting old and late nights aren't really my thing anymore, but this could come handy when I go to the Hunter Valley.

I can't wait to see what's in the April 2014 Lust Have It! box. Hopefully they continue including great products in their boxes because I am quite fond of this company having been the first beauty box company I was subscribed to. Are you subscribed to this beauty box? What was our favourite item?
